The title of this post is a little misleading; this isn't about having a cute man on your arm, although it doesn't hurt to have one! I'm talking about the forgotten area of accessories - the wrist. I always wear necklaces and rings but I always seem to leave my wrist bare. So I thought I'd showcase the typical items I wear in the hope I'll begin to buy more arm candy.

(Also, referring to a man as arm candy is a little cheesy - I hope you know I don't refer to men as accessories!) 

This is perhaps my favourite bracelet, I bought it from New Look about a year or two ago. I'm a big fan of the ring/bracelet combo because it doesn't require much effort in the way of finding a ring to match your bracelet - it's all there for you!

If you'd like one similar to this, ASOS have one on sale right now -

Pilgrim Gold Bracelet and Ring Chain, £18

The next arm candy is a gorgeous Casio watch from The Watch Hut*. My watch recently broke so I was on the lookout for a new watch that was a little bit more sophisticated than my last one. 

This watch is on sale at the moment for £13.75 so I'd definitely recommend it. I sometimes struggle with telling the time, it can take me quite a while (embarrassingly) but this watch is just what I need! It's a mini watch so it's not too chunky for your wrist, and you can fasten it to fit perfectly. It's burgundy and silver and will look great with other bracelets. I teamed it with one of my favourite rings from Republic, which was on sale for £2 last December. 

The burgundy watch face is my favourite part of this watch. 

I don't think you're ever too old to wear colourful bracelets, I used to make these when I was little with my bracelet making kits (I'm sure a lot of you have these too!)

I can't even remember where I got these from but I love teaming a dark outfit with colourful accessories, it gives an extra pop of colour. 

John Lewis do a similar type of design for £10 - 

I hope you enjoyed this post, it was a bit of a random one today but I like sharing with you my favourite things to wear instead of going out and buying lots of new things. My bank balance probably can't take anymore haha!

  1. I love the Casio watch! xx


    1. Thank you! It's very cute and such a bargain :) x

  2. The New Look bracelet looks so cute! I wouldn't normally wear that kind of thing but I like the vintage look of it.

    1. Aww thank you! I know what you mean, especially from somewhere like New Look where the gold can look a bit tacky. But this bracelet has a nice vintage look to it xx

  3. I really like the first bracelet! X
