Erin Leary, Founder of BeBuddha Jewelry, used her travels all over the world as inspiration for her passion in making jewelry. She finds unique elements (beads, pendants, metals and rings, etcetera) in order to create beautiful jewelry pieces that you can’t find anywhere else!
I’ve collaborated with BeBuddha Jewelry in order to present you a very special blog post series. Each week, I will be matching a themed look with several of Erin Leary’s pieces.
For this outfit, I am wearing the BANGKOK Necklace, ST. THOMAS Bracelet, and KOH SAMUI THICK Bracelet. Be sure to check what kinds of stones each piece contains and what special meanings each stone holds.
What kind of look should you pull off with colorful jewelry?
I would say to keep it simple and my first tip for that is to wear a white top. The color white is the perfect contrast for any jewelry pieces that often can be used as statement pieces, like the ornate Bangkok necklace and multicolored St. Thomas and Koh Samui bracelets featured here.
In order to show off the colorful gemstones that I am wearing, I decided a simple outfit will do. Instead of my basic, everyday white t-shirt, I wore a clean, white sleeveless top with a small stand-up collar in order to avoid creating an understated look.
For the bottom piece, I wore a pair of breezy, baby blue shorts. I didn’t realize this, but the trendy baby/light blue color brings out the iridescent opalite, freshwater pearls, Czech glass and silver seed beads! So, if you are trying to find a color besides white that will match white to opaque colored stones, try clothes that range in the light blue to a sea green (the color of my nails) shade.
I know I may look young for my age already, but I assure you that wearing a lot of colors definitely can bring out the youth in anyone, ha-ha! So, don’t be afraid to add pops of color when you want to start out the day bright and casual.
