    So many pretty bracelets! Love it 🙂

  2. […] Forever 21 bangle I love my mix! I also included a Banana Republic gold cuff and H & M ring on the other arm. Too much? I think not. Bracelets are HUGE this summer. Everyone’s rocking friendship bracelets, wraps and curb chains. I’m loving DIY versions of all of these. (I’ve even got one coming up soon with some blog friends.) What about you? Is this a trend you’ve worn? Have been wanting to try? It’s so fun. I recommend you give it a try if you haven’t already. Be sure to  check out how other bloggers are hosting their own arm parties!
