Destination Dazzling (Part Two)

Let's continue with Part Two of Destination Dazzling!  Bring on the beauty!

Beachy Baubles:  Who doesn't love a little sparkle?  The right jazzicle can spice up your look without weighing you down or overpowering the scene you and Mother Nature have created.  Look for pieces that pick up the colors of your surroundings.  Bright, tropical colors are killah against  the creamy tones of sand and skin.  Here's what I'm craving right now:

This Aquamarine Necklace from Uncovet is simple and sophisticated.  I'm also loving the $49 price tag.  A little sparkle that won't break the bank.

This is the enchanting Reflecting Pools Necklace from Ranjana Khan for BHLDN.  It's a bit pricey, coming in at $600, but the handmade mother of pearl stunner is worth the splurge.

Another cutie from Uncovet: Spiked Punch Earrings!  I just think these are adorable!  A perfect pop of color!  You can pick up a pair at Uncovet for $39.

Hello, nurse!  I am dying for these Large Feather Plume bangles from Sequin.  They're hinged, which I think is especially nice for warmer climates and are a great way to pull in tropical color!  The teal one is my favorite!

Hair Affair:  So, unless you plan to have a team of twenty following you around, get used to the idea that tropical weather may anger your hair.  It's okay.  It happens to (almost) everyone.  However, the answer will NOT be found in dousing your tresses in sticky, harmful (to both you and to the enviro) products.  Beachy waves, dreamy updos, and airy chignons will be aces in your locale.  Consider anchoring pesky flyaways with embellished pins or work them into braids.

Snail braids!  Cute, playful, and it gets your hair off your neck, which can be invaluable for an outdoor, tropical wedding.  J'adore The Beauty Department! This place is lousy with amazing tutorials!  Check it out!

Can we just talk about braids for a minute?  Suh.  Kyoot.  Suh.  Easy.  I would love this even more if it was a waterfall braid.  Also, more waves.  It's perfect for the bohemian beach bride!

The messy bun is such a lifesaver, y'all!  Easy to do, easy to maintain, and easy to dress up.  Just throw a jeweled clip or a chic little fascinator in there and voila!  Perfection!  I found this particular one while browsing Brunch at Saks.  Supa cute blog!

I hope this has helped you get the wheels turning.  There is so much greatness out there, I encourage you to get lost in it for awhile and see what you come up with!  You can't go wrong....well, I'm sure you could, but if I know my dolls, then we are in for one amazing summah!
