Embrace Your Internal Ocean Mommi

I am extremely a great deal a Seashore Vibes Homosexual, which I considered was a recent progress. Just after all, I by no means lived particularly close to the seaside right until the stop of 2020 when I moved to south Florida. I commenced telling my girlfriend that I was going to start decorating our home with seashells and fish knickknacks, and I was only fifty percent-joking. (Without a doubt from exactly where I’m presently sitting down in my residing place, I can see…three distinctive fish knickknacks). But apparently seaside vibes have often been in my DNA. I lately located a jewelry box from my youth, and it turned out to be a treasure trove of early-to-mid-2000s nautical jewellery???? I was not a Puka Shells Dyke, but I seemingly was a Dolphin Ring Dyke. I found not one particular, not two, but Four dolphin rings in my outdated jewelry box. And you greater feel I took those people poor boys out and began unironically putting on them in the year 2022. I assumed I experienced developed into a Seashore Mommi more than time, but seriously, I’m just returning to my roots. Now all I wanna have on are nautically impressed jewelry and garments from the Tommy Bahama catalogue. I am who I am and who I have apparently often been!!!!!! Also for far more beachy appears, you should refer to Christina’s excellent tutorial to dressing like you’re in the movie The Birdcage. Below is a queer beach jewellery tutorial for you, but initially, a photograph of a person of my dolphin rings:

this is the place I’m at, energetically

Daily Sea Necklaces

These are lowkey/functional necklaces that could easily be layered with other necklaces and worn with daily appears. Due to the fact not everyone necessarily wishes a giant octopus on their neck! (Though if you are into a a lot more maximalist sea creature search, see the up coming part, down below). I for one particular am thrilled to see early 2000s-esque dolphin jewellery is possessing a Second. I shall dress in my rediscovered affordable dolphin rings with delight.

Assertion Sea Necklaces

OH All right, you want to put on your ocean really like BOLDLY. Maybe Ursula is your villain origin story slash queer root? Probably you like a thing a little playful when it comes to your equipment? I’m very into these vintage-impressed nautical lockets like the just one showcased in the initial graphic. The Etsy vendor helps make other kinds, also, which includes just one with a girl and an orca on it. For a couple additional bucks, you can toss a appeal on it. And I am personally prepared to just throw charms on every thing once more like it’s 2003. The artist who produced the whale necklace in picture 6 also will make an octopus variation that is v awesome.

Beachy Bracelets/Anklets

Tbh when I do have on jewelry to the genuine beach front, it is commonly just a bracelet or anklet situation. Did I just invest in an an abalone + dolphin allure bracelet on eBay to go with my many dolphin rings? Sure I did. And I didn’t backlink any of these previously mentioned considering that commonly only just one is out there, but if you are interested, listed here are some other classic kinds you can snag: Dolphin Silver Tone Bracelet ($9) Double Dolphin Silver Tone Bracelet ($9) Pink and Eco-friendly Dolphin Bracelet ($6) 1980s Dolphin Bracelet ($9). (Am I the only a single on this hyper-precise dolphin jewelry nostalgia journey??? It’s possible so.)

Sea Creature Rings

I understand this makes me a standard seashore bitch, but I am certainly a sucker for the Pura Vida wave rings. I have on mine nearly day-to-day. Also, do you know what your sea-themed rings would appear good in? These very lovable oyster ring dishes! Also, there are soooo many octopus rings out there, building me feel like I need an octopus ring. Also, it would not be a queer seaside jewelry guidebook with no some butch ring solutions. That anchor ring may well be the basic butch model of a wave ring, but I’m into it sorry!!!! And of class, I will have to connection some of THEE dolphin rings I cannot cease chatting about (but when again, these are only readily available as single things or in small portions so get em even though you can!): Dolphin Rings in Many Styles and Shades ($10, 6 offered) Silver and Environmentally friendly Dolphin Ring ($13) okay who will be the brave soul who purchases this 36-established of dolphin rings for $25?????

Oceanic Ear Cuffs

Are ear cuffs obtaining a second? Have ear cuffs BEEN owning a moment and I’ve just been oblivious? Perfectly, I’m thrilled, since I’m allergic to essentially all earrings if I wear them in my precise piercings, but ear cuffs I can don all day.

Seaside Earrings

If there is just one matter I’ve learned from creating this beach front jewellery information, it is that folks simply love to don cephalopods??? In any case, those people connected cuttlefish earrings actually have “lesbian” in the title of the Etsy listing, and I’m not exactly sure why, but I do confess those people cephalopods glimpse like girlfriends.

Fishy Pins

If you want to use an enamel pin-studded jean jacket to the seaside, who am I to stop you? Or, maybe, you just want to rock the seaside on your jean jacket/leather jacket/tote bag/and so on. even when you are nowhere close to the seashore. I assistance it!

That’s it for this queer beach front jewellery guideline! What extras do you wear to the seaside/to channel the sea?
