Function and fashion of olympic proportions: Maria Shireen bittersweet Bracelet

Raised handsOK, I want to see hands — how many of you wear an elastic hair tie as a bracelet, just in case you find yourself wanting to get that hair off your shoulders and out of your eyes? My hand is definitely up.  Now, however, it’s up so I can show you my gorgeous golden bracelet that also houses my hair tie!

Maria Shireen bracelet red white blueThe bracelet accessories line Maria Shireen sent me this very chic and modern bracelet from the bittersweet collection ($45).  It is incredibly fashionable, wonderfully functional, and is perfect for working out or going out.

Maria Shireen braceletsMaria Shireen has two different collections, bittersweet and Luxury.  The bittersweet signature bracelets are made of stainless steel and come in three different finishes: silver, gold, or rose gold. The line has five different metal designs, plus two BPA-free fun-looking plastic designs for those younger fashionistas. The Luxury Collection has two sterling silver styles in three color varieties, including silver, gold, rose gold.

Each Maria Shireen bracelet is more than a statement piece – it’s very practical as it can be worn with its elastic hair tie. It takes you right from time-challenged soccer mom to chic and stylish mom. I absolutely love how you can mix and match with whatever color hair tie you happen to have.

With my hair tie...
With my hair tie…
...and without!
…and without!

This bracelet is a fantastic piece of jewelry that I wear all the time. And if you need a great excuse for splurging on a little something for yourself, take a look at the gorgeous USA 2016 Medals Set ($110)!
