If you live in Miami, there is a 99-percent chance you are a mermaid. We know we definitely are based on our affinity for salty air and sandy feet. Regardless of the season, you will find us every weekend beach-side working on our tans and showing off the bikini body we work so hard to maintain year-round (thanks, ClassPass!).
Being a Miami mermaid is a tough job and we take it very seriously. After all, we have a reputation not only of looking good, but also of being tan and having the best beach style. The secret to our perma-tan is a healthy combo of good old-fashioned sunshine and the occasional visit to Spray Nation Tan. The key to our killer style is carefully selecting the right swimwear and accessories to match.
Like any good mermaid, our style on the beach and on the street is primarily influenced by our love for the ocean. Our obsession du jour are marine-inspired accessories. At the top of our must-have list? The gold-dipped shark tooth necklaces from FIN, an ocean-inspired jewelry brand from Montauk.
FIN jewelry begins its journey 200 feet deep in the Atlantic Ocean where Montauk mermaid and shark wrangler-extraordinaire, Bella Ornaf, finds and collects them. Each shark tooth is then dipped in 18-carat gold to create a one-of-a-kind accessory perfect for anyone who loves sharks or fine jewelry. Check out the full collection on the FIN website.
We love our Big FIN necklace because of its unique history. Whenever we wear it, it is the perfect conversation starter! We also love its versatility. We can easily change its chain to dress it up or dress it down to match our look. Its versatility is particularly evident in the photos from our latest shoot at #ThankYouMiami HQ: the beach at 4th Street. Check them out below!
