As toddlers we long to put anything and everything that moves into our mouths. In elementary school we find it irresistible to collect whatever we find – even if it has legs and crawls. In junior high we spend a good 65% of our time screaming as our sixth grade crushes attempt to put spiders in our hair. And in high school? Well, we use the brawn of our football player boyfriends to protect us from all minute creepy crawlies that cross our path. Now, however, with the spring upon us and the summer fast approaching, I find bugs, at least in terms of accessories, completely darling. Not to mention the perfect complement to our floral-inspired ensembles!
Girlprops "2 3/8 Insect Ring" I am trying to be very good in terms of spending money on rings, but the moment I laid eyes on this 2 3/8 Insect Ring three days ago, I just knew that I had to take it home; and promptly placed my order. The rhinestone embellishment and subtle orange and copper enameling make this a piece that is easy to pair with any color in your closet; while the antique finish provides a vintage vibe that is hard to ignore. I already know that I’ll be waving my hand to and fro non-stop when this cutie is perched upon my finger!
Fred Flare "Dragonfly Earrings" I’m not sure if it has something to do with having seen Kirsten Dunst don a temporary dragonfly tattoo on her back complete with sparkly rhinestones to a premier so many years ago, or the magical colors that dragonflies are made up of; but I’ve always found the flitting insects to be so romantic. Thus, I fell in love with these Dragonfly Earrings in three seconds flat. The pendants are intricately detailed. The gold color is simply stunning. I don’t know about you, but I can certainly see myself slipping these lovelies into my lobes all summer long.
Kenneth Jay Lane "Red Enamel Ladybug Watch/Pendant Necklace" Regardless of the fact that ladybugs are a type of beetle, I have always counted them as my favorite insect due to their bright color, trusting nature, and penchant to sit demurely on your hand for long periods of time. So the discovery of this Kenneth Jay Lane Red Enamel Ladybug Watch/Pendant Necklace was perfect because:
♥It's a ladybug.
♥It's a watch.
♥It's a necklace.
Completely functional and fabulous, this is a piece that any stylish girl certainly needs in her jewelry collection. And no...I’m not just saying that because of the sparkly black Swarovski crystals that cover its red body. Or the bright cherry color that stands out from blocks away. Can this beauty please come in for a landing on my front porch?
Cutesygirl "Lucite Butterflies Bangle" A bangle is a simple yet understated way to accessorize any outfit; especially when it’s slightly chunky and whimsical. This Lucite Butterflies Bangle fits this description to a T. The thick Lucite bangle is filled with a colorful butterfly-print silk fabric that is ethereal, nature-inspired, completely versatile, and the cutest way to make a statement; and have your outfit take flight!
Amiclubwear "Green Gold Gemstone Floral Dragonfly Fashion Ring" You may not be able to tell from the picture, but this Green Gold Gemstone Floral Dragonfly Fashion Ring is truly the epitome of cheery spring and summer. Dressed up with colorful enamel-covered dragonflies, butterflies, and flowers, all draped over a glittering green gemstone resting in a bed of golden glory, this is the ring I’d love to display proudly at garden parties and barbeques until the summer comes to a close. When paired with a flirty white summer frock, it would receive a standing ovation. Slip it on with a casual tee and flip flops, and people will make a fuss. It packs a punch. It makes a statement. It screams perfection. Can I please have it?
Yes, I confess...I’ve gone buggy. Have you?
Thanks to Girlprops, Fred Flare, QVC, Cutesygirl, and Amiclubwear for the pictures.
