Building Your Perfect Stack

I've been a fan of stacking my bracelets for a long time. The first time I posted about my favorite stack was back in 2009... and my preferences have changed! It's actually funny to see how they've stayed the same too. I used to be quite reluctant to wear any type of jewelry, but I've gradually gotten more and more used to wearing it. I even wear rings now... every day! (There was a time when I would have panic attacks with rings on!)

I tend to wear the same type of stack every day with slight variations depending on my outfit. I think the perfect stack has a mixture of meaningful pieces (at least one) and some fun color!

I always wear my Live Your Dreams cuff. I've had it since high school and it means a lot to me. It's definitely a bit banged up, but all things considered it's in decent shape! I wear it regardless of whether I'm wearing silver or gold.

For my twenty-second birthday, I received the gold monogrammed bracelet. I wear this super frequently. (At least two people ask me where I got it every single day!) While I like monogrammed necklaces (and have an acrylic one myself), I love having the bracelet. It blends in very well and doesn't scream "monogram!".

Bangles are an easy way to add color to an outfit or complement colors of a piece of clothing. I have great bangles from J. Crew (both the wide and the medium), Kate Spade, and Target (!!!).

I also wear some sort of pearl assortment. I have a bunch of pearl bracelets from all over. Most of them I've had since elementary and middle school. My current favorites are so old that I can't really even remember why or when I got them. (I feel like they were a birthday present in fourth or fifth grade, but I'm not too sure.) I'm loving this Kate Spade pearl bracelet with the bow! So fun!

(I don't have the monogrammed charm bracelet featured... but it's seriously cute!)

Here are some pictures of recent stacks I've been sporting.

  10. You have some great taste! I've never liked stacks because I thought they were too busy, but these are pretty mellow yet adorable. Love it!

  14. I love all of these stacks! I don't have enough complimentary bracelets to create my own yet, but I'm hoping to get some basics like the Kate Spade "idiom bangle" and "live your dreams cuff" to start me off soon.

  19. I love your "arm party" and am so into them now. Truthfully, before becoming a Stella & Dot independent stylist, I never used to wear a stack b/c of the cost. Now, I love the look! Some of my favorite bangles are $19: http://www.stelladot.com/shop/en_us/jewelry/bracelets

    Thanks for the inspiration!
