Wardrobe Wednesday - Statement Earrings


One of my favorite ways to stay on trend each season is with jewelry - specifically for me earrings. Jewelry fits no matter your size and while bracelets can get in the way with work and necklaces can either complete or compete with an outfit I find that I wear earrings every single day and I tend to be drawn to statement earrings.
 
 
 
My absolute favorite statement earrings are the Kendra Scott Danielle Earrings. But at $65 a pair I tend to purchase one pair per season. I got this green pair last fall because I thought it would be good to dress up football outfits when we watch Green Bay Packer games. With palm prints being so in style right now I'm getting a lot of wear out of this particular pair this summer. I also have them in blue, burgundy and mother of peal and I have my eye on the pink pair as my next set.
 
 
Last spring I mixed it up and got these Emma Chandelier earrings. I feel like the chandelier is a classic style and these are actually pretty lightweights as far as chandeliers go and I'll be wearing them for years. They could absolutely be worn dressed up but I also really love them with a casual look.
 
 
Emma Chandelier Up-close:
Although I appreciate the seasonless style of Kendra I do like to purchase earring that are really trendy each season and with these purchases I don't like to spend a lot knowing that they can quickly go out of style. One style I'm really into right now is the lantern balls.
 
This stripped pair came in my Prep Obsessed July Mystery Mailer. In addition to red, white and blue going with patriotic stuff I think they're great for the nautical look as well. Navy is a great neutral so these earring can add an instant bit of trend to an investment piece.


I purchased these pastel lantern earrings from Charming Charlie for $12. Pink and mint are colors I'm currently obsessing over so I really liked the idea of being able to add a pop of color to some of my staple outfits. I get a lot of compliments on this pair in particular,


While at Charming Charlie I also purchased two pairs of tassel earrings - the small tassel hoops in the top picture and these bold tassels. I am loving these earrings against this off the shoulder top and I've repeated this top look with several different pairs of pants this season.  

 
 
Staying on trend doesn't have to cost a lot and I have found that buying five "trendy" pairs of earrings was enough to update my collection for the summer.

Jessica London Style Swap

One of my favorite things about social media is how it has become this wonderful shared collective space. When it comes to fashion I love styling outfits and mixing up items in my closet but I also love seeing how other people style the pieces I have and I am always getting style inspiration from others.
In that spirit this month I teamed up with Lexi Nimmo to share some of our favorite pieces for fall from Jessica London. Lexi and I recently discovered that we have the same taste in clothing and tend to pick a lot of the same pieces so we thought it would be fun to team up and style some of the same items on purpose for once. We each picked two items so we could have four looks each to share. 
Lexi picked a leather moto jacket and sleeveless mock neck sweater. I decided to get the jacket in blue instead of the traditional black because I wear a lot of blue as is so I knew it would go with a lot of things in my closet. For the mock neck sweater I went with a cream color because I’ve …

Plum Paper Designs - Fitness Insert

I know I say this every year but this year I also want to make wellness / fitness a priority. It's hard for me to get in the mindset of making it important because quite frankly it's not something my doctor gets onto me about. But during 2015 I've been making a switch to a more natural lifestyle and that has put fitness back at my top of mind. So, for $4.50 I got the fitness section added onto my Plum Paper Designs Planner 
Here's what's inside:

A monthly layout for 12 months
Weight Loss Tracker at the Back 

I LOVE the monthly layout! First off, having a hydration tracker for each day is going to be so nice. I also love the idea of holding myself accountable to writing down an activity (or excuse) each day. Most of all I love the recognition that each month will have different goals and includes some note sections ; one thing I hear a lot form people who successfully got fit was that they had some kind of tracking and were able to go back…

20 Rules for Modern Feminine Style

One of the things I love about the digital age is the ability to connect with others! I recently got a great idea from a youtuber I follow to make a list of 20 "rules" that define my lifestyle and I really loved this idea and thought not only would this be a good exercise for myself but a good topic to share with y'all. So, obviously you do you and wear whatever you want but these are my guidelines for my modern feminine without breaking the bank aesthetic.
1. Focus on pieces with wear ability beyond one season, don't get sucked into too many trends. For example, gingham will always be wearable for summer, plaid for fall, sweaters for winter and floral for spring - but get pieces with classic cuts so you can wear them year after year. For example, a gingham shirt dress is classic, a gingham top with bell sleeves will look dated the second that shape is out. 2. Don't be afraid to spend a little more for quality timeless pieces - a cashmere sweater, a great blac…

Vi Peel

2018 Update: Hello Internet! Welcome to my most popular blog post - I presume you're here because you're considering getting a facial peel. Please keep in mind this is an old post and my photo quality is not great. Please feel free to read and enjoy but I do want to let you know that as the years have passed I have taken a more proactive approach with my skin care and I do not get frequent peels. If you'd like to see my modern approach to skincare check out some of my other beauty posts and I'd love for you to connect with me on Instagram to keep up with my latest and greatest recommendations.

Hello! So I got my first Vi Peel which I was super excited about. Since the Botox post was popular I figure y'all would like this too. Besides, it's well established I'm beyond any sense of privacy or shame here.
I got my first peel years ago - a mild Glycolic peel added onto my fac…

Sensible Portions

I'm Sometimes you have to recognize your strengths and when it's time to outsource . For me a healthy lifestyle is not a strength. I love the idea of eating small healthy meals and working out everyday but then I get hangry and eat anything in sight. Or I have a busy weekend and don't have time to meal prep, and then I'm screwed for the week and one bad week turns into a bad month, and a bad year and a decade of gaining weight. So, when a sorority sister posted a meal plan she had found success with I was very interested. Shaun and I tried a similar program last year but it was very expensive ($170 for one person for 5 days) That's a great investment if you need to lose 10 or 20 lbs but when you have a lot to lose you need a long term plan that is viable from a time, nutrition and financial aspect. 
Long term it's still pricey but I was very impressed with the value and results of sensible portions and decided to give it a try. Like most meal plans the plan is …
