Saturday afternoon, around 2 PM, 11th June, a cold summer rain… but I was in a good mood anyway. I normally work on weekends but when you enjoy what you are doing, it`s different. Lots of people came in Ambleside today for Great North Swim. Big thumbs up for the braves ones. I got to work thinking I will have a hectic day. Turns up when I receive jewellery my mood changes rapidly, time stops and I`m home writing a new blog review.
Reviews stimulate my creativity and I can easily put forward different ways of wearing/ styling various products. I enjoy staying by the lake or going to the seaside, getting tanned, reading a book on the beach, dreaming, playing volleyball or simply enjoying a frappe while the sea and her waves sing a wonderful symphony. In a fashionable way, summer it`s more about accessories and less about clothes: big hats, massive sunglasses, flip flops, beach bags, flash tattoos, jewellery, and colourful swimsuits.
Last summer, the body chains were quite popular. This year, if you want to step out from the body chain trend, Irals promise to add some sparkles! Did anyone say champagne? No?! Ok, let`s stick to the theme. Their designs are inspired by the “jeitinho Brasileiro” (Brazilian way of life) and will give your summer outfit that extra oomph! And they mean it !!
The items are so sparkling but not kitschy – and that`s a huge bonus! What I like about the products is the good quality material. The design is versatile and that`s how I like my items to be. Reusable, chic but still modern. I am such a huge fan of silver pieces, gold seems a little hard for me to incorporate into everyday outfits sometimes. The jewellery from petite collection seems to have bulky gems but I guess this is just personal preference. I like delicate pieces. On their website, you can find 3 collections: petite (a little bit smaller than the classic ones), classic and luxury (with colourful gems) accessories.
Irals team dares me to bring extravaganza to my flipflops. Add the accessories to your strappy dress or top. Use them on your bra, swimsuit, flip-flops, shoes or even bag. Basically, this summer jewellery is a strap magnet. I choose to wear them in my hair as well. Here is how I styled the Irals accessories.
The silver crab jewellery goes with my swimsuit
The starfish jewellery accompanies my heels
The heart jewellery matches my purse
Sea-side jewellery in my hair? Yes, please!
