She Sells Seashells By the Seashore

She sells seashells by the seashore.
The shells she sells are surely seashells.
So if she sells shells on the seashore,
I'm sure she sells seashore shells.

I don’t know what has gotten into me lately, but I’m absolutely obsessed with all things beachy. Especially sweet little jewel touches that bring the seashore to just about any ensemble. These are just a few of my favorites...

I’m kind of in love with Kate Spade. Almost every accessory with her name on it is irresistible to me. Case in point, these Tortuga Bay Fish Earrings. Not only do they tickle my fishy fancy, but they are also perfect for all of those summer-based holidays – Memorial Day, Labor Day, 4th of July – making them an essential piece of your summer wardrobe, and versatile enough for year-round wear.

I have seen many necklaces over the years, but never have I seen one as creative as this Erickson Beamon for Target Red Seed Bead Lobster Pendant Necklace. The lobster’s body is made out of red seed beads that make him appear so lifelike, and his faux diamond eyes stare out at the world in the most charming yet adorable way. What I love even more is the deconstructed body, that wiggles in every which way when you walk. This necklace embodies the three F’s – fun, fabulous, and oh so fashionable!

Have you ever gone to the beach for a relaxing day spent shoreside, gossip magazine in hand, and face-framing sunglasses perched atop your perky nose, when all of a sudden people scatter due to an octopus sighting? Somehow I don’t think that Ollie’s CZ Octopus Cocktail Ring will have that same affect on people. In fact, I think that his charming blue eyes and adorable little body will lure people in to admire your under-the-sea inspired rhinestone-adorned finger.

When I was four-years-old I took baths alongside an Ariel (from The Little Mermaid) doll who really swam in water. Eventually her hair became a tangled mess, she would instantly sink when submerged in water, and we tossed her out with the garbage, but I never forgot about her. This Mermaids and Turtles Bracelet brings back memories of the happy times I shared with Ariel, but also reaffirms my belief that mermaids do exist!

Are seahorses real? For some reason, I have always viewed seahorses as mythical creatures. Real or not, I’m completely in love with them. They are charming and sweet, and possess such a serene nature that I can’t so much as attempt to ignore. Which is why, if I were to create a charm bracelet all my own, the first thing I would buy is this 14K Yellow Gold Created Opal Detailed Seahorse Pendant. From his turned-down snout to his lifelike cutouts, he is adorable through and through with a whimsical nature that is simply charming.


Fashionably yours!
