A few weeks ago I saw a stylish woman wearing a stack of beaded bracelets, something along these lines:

I could see that the bracelets had some type of charm on them, but I wasn’t paying close enough attention.
I liked the look, though, and I started searching out beaded bracelets like this.
First stop: Target.
Target started a collaboration with Bauble Bar a year or two ago, and I thought they may have a cheap, on-trend bracelet set.
Target didn’t let me down.
I found something similar to this:
But that was just the start of my stack.
I also Googled “beaded bracelet with gold charm” and came up with these Gorjana bracelets:
I loved the soft pink, gray and marble colors, but at $78 each, I couldn’t justify the Gorjanas. Sorry, girls. Maybe next time.
Amazon was a treasure trove. A quick search for “beaded bracelets” brought thousands of hits, too many to sift through. I ordered about 3 or 4 bracelets, most in the $8-10 range, which is perfect for a stack.
Remember the stylish woman I saw wearing the original stack? I saw her a second time, and once again the bracelets made an appearance.
I don’t know why, but for some reason I didn’t want to stop our conversation and inquire about the brand, so I would surreptitiously look at her arm.
I could make out two words on the charm. They appeared to be names. I made a mental note of “Kinley Michelle.”
Close, but not quite: it was Kinsley Armelle.
Thank you, Google, for asking me if that was what I really meant.
Kinsley Armelle was the jackpot.
It was almost impossible to narrow the field, but I fell in love with the softly hued multicolor bracelets shown above. The two on the far right (slightly smaller pink quartz beads and the gold one) were from my original Target purchase, but the rest are Kinsley Armelle.
I am really digging this look for spring, particularly since it is in the soft color palette that I am decidedly leaning to now.
