My Latest Addiction

I have a new addiction and it's to BRACELETS!

Ok, I'll admit it...I'm finally starting to like jewelry! I know that sounds kinda lame to say, but I'm always late to the party. I've always appreciated jewelry and always enjoyed looking at it, but when it came down to actually wearing it...well, that's a different story. Until recently...

I've never liked wearing things around my neck or on my wrists, I don't even wear watches! Maybe I'm lazy or cheap, or just never really cared, but over the last few months, this has been changing!

I've been purchasing quite a few necklaces this past year, but I've never really worn bracelets before. Lately, I've really gotten into the bangle bracelets and I have found quite a few from The Loft that I absolutely fell in love with. Some are just super simple and plain (which I LOVE), others have cute gold detailing around them. I've been trying to get in the habit of wearing them, because I really have started to enjoy them more. For Christmas, my adorable nephew picked me out a beautiful bracelet from JCREW, it is amazing and this is another piece I will be wearing a lot!

I've also really gotten into the charm bracelets from Alex and Ani. My mom gave me my first one for my birthday, then Jeff gave me 3 for Christmas plus one beaded bracelet (which I LOVE), my mom gave me another and my sis-in-law gave me another! So I got quite the collection over night!

What I do love about the Alex and Ani bracelets, is that they are adjustable! So I can make them tighter to fit my wrists a lot better! I also love that they are dainty and stackable, so you can mix and match them to your hearts content! The other thing I love about them is they are meaningful. They all have special meanings, but I prefer to go with the meaning of the person who gave them to me. I think that is what my draw is to these bracelets.

The other bracelets I've really gotten into lately are the bangles from Kate Spade, but these have a little bow on them! Right up my alley! Jeff got me a cream one for my birthday and black one for Christmas! 

Now I have so many to choose from and now I can layer and have "charmed arms." 

I told you, this is my new addiction!

Here is a pic of some of the bracelets mentioned:

Oh and in case you are wondering, I had no idea how to store these. I had been storing my jewelry in the bags you get from JCREW or from Kate Spade, but I don't think that is the best way to do it..;) Jeff got me this jewelry stand from the Container Store and it is perfect to keep my necklaces from getting tangled and knotted as well as a great place to keep all my new bracelets!

I'm so excited my family knew me so well and remembered me casually mentioning my interest in these. By casual mention, I mean non-stop gabbing about how much I loved them! ;)

 They are all so meaningful and I think that is the biggest reason why I enjoy wearing them so much!

Well, that is my newest addiction...what has been yours lately? What have you been obsessing over?
