I love the jewelry and apparel store Charming Charlies. Organizing by color is the most underused marketing tool in the fashion world. It never fails to make me want to buy something in ever color available. It just works beautifully. Think of how some Instagrammers are so good at making the photos on their accounts look like they all piece together. The colors are synchronized. The photo to the left highlights the greens and blues in each of the individual pictures, however they harmonize as a whole.
During a recent trip to Charming Charlies, I found myself exploring the pink and orange section mostly. There were so many lovely pieces to choose from and surprisingly, I restrained myself from buying anything. That’s right, I walked out of the store with empty hands. For anyone who knows me really well, that’s hard to do. Never mind the fact that I went next door to Hollister and they were having a sale on lounge tops so I bought one; but whatever, that’s not the point.
This first photo is the prettiest piece of costume jewelry I found! I love bright pieces like these. Personally, I would wear white jeans and a white or tan top with it just to highlight the vibrancy of the colors!
I fell in love with this little sail boat. How cute is it for summer? Anything having to do with a boat or the water I love. Can you believe at one time I was afraid of boats though? I read a book about the Titanic when I was in 1st grade and that did me in. I said “no” to ships for awhile.
Some of you may find these a little too colorful but I love color! I saw these and had to show you girls (and guys if you care). There’s just something really great about the statement jewelry that is trending this year. I can’t get enough of it. Maybe it’s because I tend to be a classic dresser and my outfits don’t always have that little extra something to make it pop.
Finally, this collection of jewelry was just so pretty sitting there so I took a photo of all of it together. There was so much pink and gold in that section I thought my head was going to burst (in a good way). All I saw was happiness!
Let me know what stores you go to for accessories in the comments below! FYI: It’s perfectly okay to say “Claire’s” because I still enjoy that little store. All links to pieces seen here are in the photos. Simply click them on!
