Though I’m generally more of an earrings kind of gal, I thought I’d make an exception for the sake of this story and open my eyes and fingertips to the other types of jewelry that exist out there. As you’ll see from my selection below, there is strong surge to add more earrings than necklaces, bracelets, rings because I truly believe earrings are the easiest pieces to wear without getting in the way with your outfit and body features. As is the case with many other women I’m sure, we’ve all got our insecurity zones and thus wearing large cuffs is one of my biggest nightmares. Also, the sweating during summer time!
Speaking of summer, what have you got planned? Any exotic destinations you’ll be Instagramming from we’ll be jealous from the corner of our desk? We for one have a bunch of weddings and long weekends scheduled in the horizon for which we urgently need to start planning outfits. If anyone has some valid suggestions for a wedding guest dress in the South of France, I’m in the market for either a firetruck red or floral maxi gown. Feel free to send us DMs on Instagram or leave us a comment below!
After some thorough investigation as to what kind of jewelry we’ll be accessorizing our looks with, it seems that earrings are in fact the one piece that stands out the most! It seems to be overly present in all collections this time of year, alongside a multitude of sea shell adorned pieces which we’re all for if you checked this week’s Want, Need, Read, Wear. On top of that, we’ve got our eyes on pom poms and tassels because they haven’t yet left the trend scene since their explosion last summer – for your wrists we recommend a classic cuff for when you’re running out of time and a proper arm party is out of the question. Hands and fingers, we love to add colour with some semi-precious stones or a simple classic silver or gold ring for when you want to be fully bejewelled but also don’t want to throw shade on let’s say that statement earring you’ve got dangling down your earlobes. We’re also throwing in an eye drop bracelet for some good summer fortune, a fruit salad, and you may or may not be lured into investing in some animal decorated pieces!
