The harsh reality is that warm spring weather won’t be coming anytime soon. If you’re sick of wearing sweaters and your tired old winter gear, but simply can’t move forward and spend money on next season’s new arrivals, accessories can be an easy fix. This sweet spot allows you to refresh your wardrobe without making a huge commitment. Here are a few fun pieces to add a little energy to your looks.
BRACELETS FOR CHANGE…
Whether dazzling with diamonds, a simple leather band, or beads of color, a bracelet adorns the wrist and brings visual interest to your outfit. Why not make it mean something too? Stay Seymour was created when the owner’s friend attempted suicide. During that friend’s recovery, founder Tiffany Baker made bracelets as reminders of her love and support, something her friend could wear every day. That positivity turned into a business that donates a portion of its profits to local mental health programs and is dedicated to encouraging discussions about mental health. Stay Seymour is also dedicated to offering environmentally friendly products. Each set of bracelets is handmade from second-hand, repurposed beads. These simple bracelets keep plastics out of the ocean, keep people talking about how they’re doing, and keep you looking great.
All the bracelet sets are $34 each.
Visit stayseymour.com to peek at the goods or purchase them at Copper Corners Art Gallery in Caledonia.
