The Mermaid Craze has swept the nation.
As you can see from the photos above, I'm a little bit of a mermaid fan. Ok a lot bit. But there's definitely something to be said of the recent mermaid craze in fashion. It's showing up everywhere in all different ways. I love it.
In my first two photos you can see my mermaid-themed beach look, where I styled a DressLily mermaid bikini with a vintage 1920s gold shell purse I found on Mermaid by Hand Jewelry, an Etsy shop (and Instagram page) I came across. The bikini is currently on sale on DressLily!
The second two photos are of my mermaid inspired home look, because all mermaids watch tv now and don't just sit on a rock in the ocean, amiright? In this look I wore a different shell bikini with more pastel colors also from DressLily and a DressLily mermaid tail blanket (both on the site) . The bikinis are on sale and some of the mermaid blankets too! I completed the look with a starfish barrette (purchased on Etsy I believe) that I scored as a bridesmaid in a beach-themed wedding I was in on the CT shoreline.
These looks are so much fun in the summertime, and the blanket can help you feel beachy while accepting a not-so-summerlike climate from the comfort of your own home. I even recently decorated my bathroom with these beach and mermaid-inspired accents!
