The (long overdue) arrival of warm weather in New England has meant that I’ve been wishfully thinking “spring” for a few months now without being able to dress the part. Finally, on a sunny day a few weeks ago, when it finally felt like I might not be forcing it, I decided to dig in to my bin of summer clothes that had been packed away all winter. Dressing up in colors I hadn’t worn since last summer season inspired me to break out some locally-sourced accessories I hadn’t worn in a while: my Angela Moore bracelets.
If you encountered me circa spring 2009, you’d find me rocking these pretty pastel beads at least once a week. Before Alex and Ani or Kiel James Patrick came on the RI bracelet scene, my friends and I were all voracious Angela Moore collectors, accruing large collections of painted bracelets with matching necklaces or earrings, in many cases. When birthdays rolled around, a little blue bag emblazoned with AM’s leafy logo was a welcome gift. Since they were such a staple when I was little, I tend to associate them with my lovely little island home – appropriately so, given that the only Angela Moore store outside of Florida is in Newport. It’s been quite a few summers since I actually wore them downtown, but I’m definitely thinking of bringing them back in to my jewelry rotation this year!
For more information about the brand or to buy a bracelet of your own, check out the Angela Moore Collection online.

To all my Boston-based ladies who are even remotely close to BC, the lovely Lisa Benson will be on campus with absolutely gorgeous pieces for fall (and winter…and spring.. and summer) this Friday, October 11th (excuse the typo in the graphic below…). I attended one of her in-house shows last week and got these shots of some of the pieces she’ll have on Friday.
Whether you’re looking for a statement necklace, a version of a popular design, or a simple, everyday piece, she will have something beautiful for you!
Love any combination of cheetah, gold, black, and sparkles – perfect all together or individually.
Received compliments on my starfish ring all summer!
Who doesn’t love beautiful cocktail rings? For less than $15?!
I’m a sucker for a pretty ring, and at less than $15 each, you can afford to splurge on these. I have a starfish one that was raking in the compliments all summer.
I adore this one — it reminds me a lot of Lulu Frost and is such a fabulous shade of amber. Super sparkly and at $18 will certainly not cost as much as it looks!
Whether you’re still at BC or not, I would high-tail it to McElroy on Wednesday and grab these before they’re gone! Everyone deserves to make a statement – these pieces will do just that.
I can be seen wearing pieces from Lisa this summer and more recently during Boston Fashion Week, and still always want something new every time I see what she has available. She’s also a sweetheart to talk to and is beautiful both inside and out, just like her four daughters! Definitely make a stop on Wednesday at Mac – you’ll be glad you did!
“What did it take to make the cut? A love of Brooks Brothers, a passion for lacrosse, a hatred of regular shoes.”
Snaps for BC making the list this year — big thanks go out to Patagonia (ask me about my Re-Tool Fleece), Brooks Brothers (although their BC university line was really underwhelming) and, of course, Sperry Topsider for being the go-to shoe choice whether you’re wearing sweatpants, jeans, or Nantucket Reds. If “hating regular shoes” is wrong, I don’t ever want to be right.
