I don’t know about you but when I was a kid I LOVED sailor bracelets. Spending all my summers on the lake, it was THE thing to do. I would buy a new one at the end of every school year and wear it all summer. In case you are unfamiliar, you put them on and they shrink to fit your wrist when they get wet. The first few days I had mine I would keep my hand submerged in water as long as possible (and secretly roll my wrist in the sand so it didn’t look as bright white and new). By the time school would start again the bracelet would be yellow-ish brown and my mom would force me cut it off. It was one of the saddest days of every summer.
When recently browsing the Lilly website I came across the most amazing thing ever. A Lilly sailor bracelet! If I wasn’t in the boring corporate world (okay fine, Advertising isn’t that boring) or if these bracelets didn’t shrink to your wrist only to be later cut off, I would totally start sporting it. Who knows, maybe I will get adventurous and wear it anyways.
Things that make me happy today:
1. Starbucks inside my local Target (better combination than peanut butter and jelly)
2. My new monogram sticker for my blackberry found here.
3. Fresh Strawberries
