I am notorious for small wrists inherited from my mother. Bangles? Forget it. So much so that when one of my best friends was getting married, she was afraid to have the bridesmaids wear bangles because she knew they would fall off of me. It’s not just a matter of small wrists. My hands are too narrow to hold bracelets up. An aunt gave me a beautiful bracelet when I was born (sized for an infant) and it still fits. So when I cam to San Francisco and discovered Alex and Ani (remember this was two years ago, before they were sold in department stores, before they took over the country) I was beyond happy. (For the record, I bought all these things with my own money and no one is telling me to endorse Alex and Ani…when I moved I brought everyone there and they knew me by name.)I’ve been packing so I haven’t been wearing things on the wrist but I was organizing my jewelry and I remembered them. I know a lot of them mean something spiritual, but for me? They’re friendship bracelets. Am I in third grade? Maybe. But my best friends have the dove, the initial, and more. My mom has the mermaid. My aunt has the anchor. As I’ve lived across the country, this is a way for me to feel connected to them–third grade or not.They match perfectly with my Rose Gold Michael Kors watch (my first big girl purchase) and no one ever fails to comment on my wrists. Rose Gold looks great on any skin color–even my extremely pale kind. For someone who couldn’t wear bangles, the adjustable Alex and Ani bracelets are working for me. Summer is around the corner though, so I am switching these out for:It’s light (bought on Rue La La on major sale) and matches everything. Gotta keep it fresh for summer, even when you’re moving across the country.
How do you style your wrists?
