I am pretty particular when it comes to my jewelry. I like to keep it simple, wearing my diamond studs that Thomas got me for Christmas a few years ago or the pearls that my mom gave me for my 21st birthday. But I’ve always loved a great statement earring, too. I recently wrote this blog post rounding up some of my favorite styles and brands to wear when I do want to go for something bold. Wearing stand-out earrings is the a perfect way to add a bit of whimsy and detail to even the simplest daytime outfit. While some earrings (including these Oscar de la Renta ones that I love) can be expensive, I was pleasantly surprised to find 12 beautiful options under $100 (plus these adorable handmade blooms that my sister recently wore).
