Wrist Wear – Cape May Style

September 5, 2011

Mike and I just returned from a fabulously relaxing weekend in Cape May.

We walked the boardwalk checking out the vendors and came across these colorful handmade friendship bracelets. Love.

I got the ones below…each for $5 or less! And I should add, there was a time when I was a master as making these! I wish I could remember the stiches. Such a fun middle school hobby.

Here I am with the bracelets in action. Who’d have thought I’d find chic wrist wear amongst all the Victorian goodness of Cape May? I stacked them with my own leather wraparound bracelet from Banana Republic. Purchase a similar one here.

The gold leather notebook I’m holding came from Urban Outfitters – a close girlfriend of mine gave it to me for my birthday. It since has become my official “wedding planning” notebook. Purchase a similar one here.

    As you know I am a HUGE fan of wrist wear ;) so once again, thank you for sharing. In addition, I just got some amazing ones from Colombia during my recent work trip.

    LOVE it…so into bracelets lately..especially since I am no longer CONSTANTLY holding my little man…I had to ditch the arm party for a while…lol.
    Sorry to say (as fab as the bracelets are) the RING steals the show! What a stunner girl.
    Hope you are having a great week.

      THANKS!! I’ll have to tell Mike. ;0) Now, the question is – are these bracelets appropriate for the office? Hmmm…

    Awesome bracelets! I have a few friendship bracelets, but I’m going to stock up on more at a flea market very soon. Love the mix of bright colors!
