I am extremely a lot a Beach front Vibes Gay, which I imagined was a new growth. Following all, I in no way lived significantly close to the seashore right up until the stop of 2020 when I moved to south Florida. I started telling my girlfriend that I was going to begin decorating our residence with seashells and fish knickknacks, and I was only 50 percent-joking. (Certainly from where by I’m presently sitting in my living room, I can see…three different fish knickknacks). But evidently seaside vibes have usually been in my DNA. I just lately identified a jewelry box from my youth, and it turned out to be a treasure trove of early-to-mid-2000s nautical jewelry???? I was not a Puka Shells Dyke, but I apparently was a Dolphin Ring Dyke. I discovered not one, not two, but Four dolphin rings in my previous jewelry box. And you greater think I took people negative boys out and began unironically carrying them in the 12 months 2022. I thought I had advanced into a Seashore Mommi in excess of time, but truly, I’m just returning to my roots. Now all I wanna put on are nautically encouraged jewelry and clothes from the Tommy Bahama catalogue. I am who I am and who I have seemingly always been!!!!!! Also for far more beachy looks, be sure to refer to Christina’s great guideline to dressing like you’re in the movie The Birdcage. Here is a queer beach front jewellery guide for you, but to start with, a picture of just one of my dolphin rings:

this is where I’m at, energetically

Day-to-day Sea Necklaces

These are lowkey/functional necklaces that could effortlessly be layered with other necklaces and worn with each day appears to be. Due to the fact not everyone always desires a huge octopus on their neck! (Nevertheless if you are into a additional maximalist sea creature glimpse, see the next segment, under). I for a person am thrilled to see early 2000s-esque dolphin jewellery is owning a Instant. I shall don my rediscovered low cost dolphin rings with delight.

Assertion Sea Necklaces

OH All right, you want to dress in your ocean appreciate BOLDLY. Perhaps Ursula is your villain origin tale slash queer root? Probably you like a thing a minimal playful when it arrives to your components? I’m quite into these vintage-influenced nautical lockets like the one featured in the 1st impression. The Etsy seller would make other ones, as well, which include one particular with a girl and an orca on it. For a pair further bucks, you can throw a charm on it. And I am personally ready to just throw charms on almost everything again like it’s 2003. The artist who manufactured the whale necklace in graphic 6 also makes an octopus version that is v awesome.

Beachy Bracelets/Anklets

Tbh when I do wear jewellery to the true beach front, it’s usually just a bracelet or anklet problem. Did I just invest in an an abalone + dolphin attraction bracelet on eBay to go with my numerous dolphin rings? Yes I did. And I did not website link any of those higher than considering that typically only a person is accessible, but if you are intrigued, below are some other vintage kinds you can snag: Dolphin Silver Tone Bracelet ($9) Double Dolphin Silver Tone Bracelet ($9) Pink and Eco-friendly Dolphin Bracelet ($6) 1980s Dolphin Bracelet ($9). (Am I the only just one on this hyper-specific dolphin jewellery nostalgia journey??? It’s possible so.)

Sea Creature Rings

I know this tends to make me a basic seaside bitch, but I am completely a sucker for the Pura Vida wave rings. I dress in mine nearly everyday. Also, do you know what your sea-themed rings would look good in? These incredibly cute oyster ring dishes! Also, there are soooo quite a few octopus rings out there, building me really feel like I require an octopus ring. Also, it would not be a queer beach jewelry tutorial without having some butch ring choices. That anchor ring may possibly be the standard butch variation of a wave ring, but I’m into it sorry!!!! And of course, I ought to url some of THEE dolphin rings I simply cannot prevent speaking about (but as soon as yet again, these are only accessible as one merchandise or in lower quantities so get em while you can!): Dolphin Rings in Different Styles and Colours ($10, six readily available) Silver and Inexperienced Dolphin Ring ($13) ok who will be the courageous soul who purchases this 36-established of dolphin rings for $25?????

Oceanic Ear Cuffs

Are ear cuffs obtaining a moment? Have ear cuffs BEEN acquiring a second and I’ve just been oblivious? Perfectly, I’m thrilled, because I’m allergic to generally all earrings if I have on them in my precise piercings, but ear cuffs I can wear all day.

Seaside Earrings

If there’s one particular issue I have discovered from creating this seaside jewellery guide, it’s that people simply love to don cephalopods??? Anyway, these connected cuttlefish earrings literally have “lesbian” in the title of the Etsy listing, and I’m not particularly confident why, but I do acknowledge these cephalopods glance like girlfriends.

Fishy Pins

If you want to have on an enamel pin-studded jean jacket to the beach, who am I to end you? Or, potentially, you just want to rock the beach on your jean jacket/leather jacket/tote bag/and many others. even when you are nowhere near the seashore. I aid it!

That is it for this queer beach jewelry guide! What extras do you put on to the beach/to channel the sea?
