I am in love with the jewelry I’ve seen this summer. I wanted to share a few pieces I’ve collected and a few pictures of other jewelry, arm parties and what inspires me…

I dig the gold and black color theme in all these pieces, both from the arm party below and the mixed jewelry above. They have a certain ’80s punk meets modern sophisticated feel to them.

Gold studded bangles from Forever 21; black and gold mixed geometric shapes bracelet from Charming Charlie; gold link bracelet from BaubleBar; gold and black stone bracelet from Forever 21.

I recently went to an “’80s Prom” that enticed me to buy these bracelets seen below… The ’80s party was a blast, as was wearing these fun pieces.
