Astrid Berges-Frisbey as the mermaid Syrena
Sam Clafin as the missionary Philip Swift
Gemma Ward as a mermaid luring a sailor into the water to his demise.
The mermaids were so beautiful in this film... They had this ethereal, glowing beauty that just radiated from their skin. I think the producers made a good decision in keeping the mermaids so stunningly beautiful until right before they catch their prey - you could believe that a sailor would be mesmerized by them and want to follow them into the water.
As soon as the sailor is almost overboard and it is too late for him to escape, the mermaid turns into a predator - her eyes change, and her mouth appears animalistic. This is when she pulls the sailor to the bottom of the ocean.
So... While I was out shopping the next day, I found a few pieces of jewelry that seemed reminiscent of mermaids or pirates. I think these pieces are perfect for Summer, as they give a beachy, slightly bohemian feel when piled on.

I love this charm bracelet by Lucky Brand... The knots and leather material give it a rough, beachy feel... It has both silver and gold charms on it... And the turquoise and pearl accents add interest and color. If I were to buy one of these pieces, this would probably be it... Then I would layer it with other gold, silver, and raffia bracelets.
This long, gold, coral branch ring is so pretty on... It makes your finger look really long and delicate. I actually picked this up for an outfit I was styling for my mom... I put it with burnished gold earrings and some big cuff bracelets for her to wear with a maxi dress. (Click HERE.)
Basically, if you want to get this mermaid/beachy/tropical look for Summer, all you have to do is think of things you would find on a beach... Stones, seashells, coral, bits of leather or wood. Very natural items. You can always mix in a big coral or turquoise chandelier earring... Maybe something that would wash up on shore and looks slightly distressed or vintage. Keep your hair and makeup natural, and give yourself a spray tan for a bronzed glow. Instant beach goddess!! :)

Hope you all had a fabulous and safe Memorial Day weekend!! I'm so sorry I've been MIA lately... We spent a day driving up to my parents' lodge, I was sick for a few days, and I didn't pack my cord to connect my camera to my computer!! But I'm feeling much better, and I'm able to use my mom's camera cord so I can upload photos and videos!! :)
