Mermaid Glass

Sea glass Necklace: c/o Wanderlust Fashion, Shark tooth Necklace: Venessa Mooney, Top: Thrifted

Growing up alongside the ocean, a certain part of me always identified with the majestical yet unfortunately mythical mermaid. As a child I would dive beneath the sea then plant my feet firmly in the sand. When the moment was right and a glassy unbroken wave approached, I would channel all my strength to burst through the water in a sort of reverse dive motion. It was as if I had the force of a fin allowing me to launch through the surf like a dolphin. Perhaps on occasion I still act out this little routine, actually I definitely do. Once a mermaid, always a mermaid.

Where is this all leading to? Glad you asked. My friend Brittany of Wanderlust Fashion has been living the mermaid dream. A few summers ago, I met this native Texan in San Diego. However, it was as if she was born from the ocean. She now calls Maui home (majorly jealous) and collects treasures from the ocean, like shells or sea glass, and converts them into gorgeous works of wearable art. Sounds like a dream right? Be sure to check out her shop, and/or follow along with her travel adventures on her blog, Instagram or Facebook. Trust me, her daily images of sea turtles and dolphins are an ideal pick-me-up.

PS: Shout out to all the veterans out there! Thank you for your service.

  4. I absolutely love this top! I would have never known how to style it! Also, I am down with your mermaid dream. The Little Mermaid was my favorite movie, and I refused to swim without my feet stuck together like a mermaid tail. Mermaids forever!

  14. I know what you mean about those mermaid feels. I'm also an aquarian so by nature I'm even more drawn to the water. I have a compulsion to just jump into bodies of it when I came across them. Even if their murky lol! (Gross, I know.)
