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.

Shelby Jewel

I really wanted to have this post up yesterday but if you've been following my instagram stories at all you will have seen that I remembered this weekend that I still needed to refinish my dining room table if I had any hopes of using it for Thanksgiving (and yes, I am on track to finish it tonight, Woohoo!) So here I am a day late but not a dollar short with a post on some fun fashion finds. Last week I attended the preview party for a new online boutique started by Memphis Blogger Shelby Jewel. Shelby has beautiful taste so I knew I was interested in checking out her boutique. Nothing says welcome like a glass of Champagne! Racks of beautiful tops Swoon worthy Jackets Pretty Tassel Earrings So, I'll admit I was very nervous about this event, Shelby is very small and most boutique sizes are small as well - I am not. But, I really wanted to see the pretty things and thought hey, you never know. As I predicted clothing is available in S - L but I have found that with some bou…

Thanksgiving Essentials

 Next week is Thanksgiving and I am soooo excited! Thanksgiving is basically all of my favorite things in one day - chilling in pjs watching the parade, delicious food, family time, and shopping! For the past few years we have gone our for Thanksgiving because the condo was not wheelchair friendly for my grandmother and my dad moved out of town but this year we're going back to having Thanksgiving at home and while I'm sad we won't have my grandma this year I am excited to be cooking the Thanksgiving meal again. In my humble opinion Thanksgiving is no time for healthy eating and since everyone has their own favorites I say bring on the carbs - this is what my menu this year will be: 1. Champagne Turkey 2. Stuffing 3. Green Bean Casserole 4. Sweet Potato Casserole 5. Mashed Potatoes 6. Peas 7. Corn Soufflé 8. Broccoli 9. Pillsbury Crescent Rolls 10. Cranberry sauce (from the can of course, I hate it but my family tells me this is the only way to have it) 11. Pie 12. Ma…

Target Beauty Box

Since I no longer get Ipsy I thought it would be fun to try the Target beauty box this month. The cost is only $7 and includes a $3 coupon towards my next beauty purchase. Here's what's inside:


Super Aqua Snail Mask $6
Snail mucin beauty products are all the rage right now. Basically women are like seaweed doesn't gross us out anymore, what's something even more nasty we can put on our faces? This was my first time trying a snail product and I'll admit I didn't dislike it . This mask has a jell layer instead of being a paper mask but it's just as easy to use as a paper mask. Allegedly this mask hydrates and heals skin while preventing aging - I don't know about all of that but it did feel nice and I'[m not wearing makeup today and not offended by the way my face looks so I guess that's a good thing.

Tom's Coconut Oil Soap $4
I had high hopes for this - if felt nice going on, I like the scent and it left my bathwater all milky. However, it…

Prep Obsessed Mystery Mailers - 2017 Holiday Season

I might have a slight addiction to Prep Obsessed mystery mailers. The are a great value, the products are always really cute, the t-shirts are so comfortable and flattering, and they get me to try items I might not have purchased on their own, so what's not to love? The latest round of mystery mailers are all about celebrating the holiday season. I have received the Thanksgiving , Black Friday and Thanksgiving Hostess and will be purchasing the Christmas and New Year mailers - they also currently have a Christmas Hostess and several fashion mystery mailers available. I have been purchasing mystery mailers from Prep Obsessed pretty much ever since they started offering them and I have never been disappointed in what I received. For Thanksgiving and Black Friday I purchased a combo mailer which means I got free shipping and a bonus item - they are also doing a Christmas / New Year combo that gives a discount. Here's the bonus item, a super cute Prep Obsessed exclusive tumble…

Gratitude Challenge

So this month I was all set to do the whole gratitude challenge thing  but as I started to think of what things I might post about I started to think maybe this isn't the best idea. Is it possible to do a gratitude challenge and come up with 30 unique expressions of gratitude without humble bragging? My day to day life is pretty boring and we don't have cute kids that provide a constant supply of little daily antidotes to be grateful about and I know that this isn't about picking up 30 material possessions  in my life and posting about them. But even when I look past the "stuff" in my life and more behind emotional and non tangible things it still just doesn't feel right - does the friend with the sick kid really need my post about how #blessed I am with good health popping up in her feed? I think not. 
Maybe I'm being Debbie downer on what's supposed to be a lighthearted and fun social media engagement but I just can't get my heart into it becau…
