You're Invited to an...


I have been seeing the stacked bracket trend everywhere lately! Usually I'm not one to jump on what's "in" but I have always been a lover of bracelets. 

My only problem with this...how much is too much? I have such a hard time with accessorizing. I never know whether this goes with that or if it's okay to have earrings & a necklace or if I should choose one or the other. Please tell me I'm not the only one who has this problem?!

I have a tendency to lean toward things that are matchy-matchy, and I'm trying to stray away from that and branch out. SO here is some inspiration for me to do just that :)

1 // 2 // 3 // 4

5 // 6 // 7 // 8


The next step is for me to gather up some boldness (and bracelets) and have myself an arm party ;)
How do you feel about stacked bracelets?

I'm the same way! Like if I have a big statement necklace that pretty much takes up the majority of the space below my head, do earrings work or no?!? And my sisters just turn up their noses at everything I put on.. but anyways, I totally love the bracelet stacking trend and I am trying to begin a nice collection! :)

p.s. I can't wait to see what you come up with! You always have the cutest stuff!

Hahah I was wondering why you were pinning so many bracelet pictures...all of which I loved! I tend to have the same problem with accessories but I always wear bracelets. I'm one of those that will stack seven bracelets plus the friendship bracelets that are permanently attached. And then find earrings of similar style. Im more earthy in my style so I have a bunch of wood bracelets and turquoise and bracelets I collect from all over the world! I say have an arm party! It's a blast on this side, I promise :)

OH MY GOODNESS I want all of those! So gorgeous. I am so into lots and lots of bracelets lately...so glad it's not just me :)

Erin said...

I love layered bracelets! I especially like the gold tones in number 4!

Meg Cady said...

Ugh I so have this problem. I never know the perfect amount of bracelets. I love all the ones that you have picked out here.

I feel like a lot of these stacks are centered around a watch or a thick base band...so a trip to charming Charlie (do y'all have charming Charlie's?)

Anyway love love love ya!!

An arm party is my favorite kind of party. ;) I do my best to attend those parties daily!! The more, the merrier.

Oh am I psychic or what? I saw these pins of yours and had a feeling you were up to something :D By the way, I love all this arm candy! Love love love! Have a happy Wednesday girl :D

I love this trend too but also have a hard time with it. I don't know how to exactly "pull it off" and I always feel like my wrist are too small for bracelets or so they don't lay the way I imagine them to. :( Maybe I will still give it a try though. I have been seeing this around and really like it. I bet you will do a great job making it work!

i need to try that more too. I will wear one or two bracelets and am not good at them not matching. I need some more bracelets!

Jamie said...

I love arm parties!! I also have a tough time with "what's enough/too much?" I find that if I wear a statement necklace I keep to smaller earrings and vice versa - I don't know if this is a good rule to follow or not but I just don't love the look of huge earrings with a big statement necklace. Could be just me. Bracelets and rings though? No rules!

Rebecca said...

Ditto!! All of a sudden I don't know how to accessorize anymore. The necklace, bracelet, earrings sets were so much easier. Ha ha!!! Now my struggle is usually what earrings to put with my necklaces and bracelets!?!? I'm so type A...definitely easier for me to matchy matchy!! Is there a written rule somewhere out there on how NOT to match!?!?!? :)

Love love love all the bangle inspirations! Have fun with it... so many different textures and colors to play with :)

Lindsay @ Trial By Sapphire said...

So pretty! I can never wear more than two bracelets, because they always get in my way. I guess I just do too much to deal with it. And functionality always wins over fashion in my case... unfortunately.

Oh, well. If I smile, maybe I can distract people from looking at my bare arms. ;-)

Allison said...

I'm the same as you...too matchy matchy. Love your inspiration!!!

Shelby @ Sweetness in Starlight said...

Loving the "arm parties", however, I don't think I can wear more than one or two bracelets at a time. It's just a little too much distraction for me. :)

Holly said...

Loving the stacked look! I don't have enough to do a super stack, but I am in process of purchasing more bracelets to create this look. Is there such a thing as too much? I too do the matchy matchy thing and I'm trying to avoid that. I think we just need to go with it!

Taylor said...

My best friend's 13 year old daughter pulls the "arm party " off so well. I want to be able to wear it and wear it well, but i'm not good when it comes to bracelets, i want to be, i love them, but i have skinny wrists so most bracelets end up annoying me. Maybe i just need to get a load of friendship bracelets which i can tie on, or make myself so cord and charm bracelets.
Hope you're having a good day.

I loved the whole stacked bracelets look but never really know what goes with what...can't wait to see what you put together...you're always so adorable!

Sara Kent said...

I love the look of stacked bracelets! I am myself more of a necklace person, I don't know what to do with all of that stuff on my wrists. But YOU my friend could ROCK this look! I would love to see some stacked bracelets on you with that pretty green high-low skirt!

LOVE the arm party inspiration, everything looks fabulous!! :)

Amanda said...

I used to wear stacked bracelets ALL THE TIME before it was a massive trend. Seriously though, I did. Then, after graduating and sitting on a computer, my jewelry diminished significantly. I'm going to need to start wearing more of my jewelry in general otherwise it's going out the door :)

housegirlhaley said...

I was skeptical about the stacking trend at first. i think some people stack a few too many at a time. But when it's done right it's super cute! I love #s 2 4 and 5

Victoria said...

I wear a watch and a hair tie on my arms and that is all. Sometimes I ditch the hair tie, sometimes I add a bracelet, and sometimes my arms are totally bare.

The stacked thing is cute -I just don't have it in me.

Jamie said...

Love arm party pictures and sometimes love doing arm parties! You should totally try it out :)
