1. Large Hoop Earrings
Believe it or not, I first got the craving for some hoops earrings while watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians. (It's my guilty pleasure, don't judge me!) My favorite part of course is being able to see all of the sylish outfits that the Kardashians and Jenners wear on the show. Naturally, I saw all of them sporting large hoop earrings and so I started my search on Etsy for my very own. I decided to go with the beautiful Thin Gold Hoops (size large), by GbyDesign. These 2-inch diameter hoops are the perfect size -- big enough to make a statement, but small enough to not over-take the whole outfit. My one reservation about large earrings is that most of them weigh down my ears. Luckily, these hoops are so incredibly light-weight that I barely notice they are there. I even wore them while I was moving boxes out of my apartment yesterday!
2. Asymmetric Ruffle Top
Lets talk ruffles now! I absolutely love the wrap-around asymmetric ruffle design. I'm particularly head over heels for the Willow Top, from Kittsona. The striped pattern on this blouse is stunning as it is, but the asymmetric ruffles add more layers of depth creating an eye catching design. Aside from just looking beautiful, the material and the ruffles allow you to wear this shirt sans bra, without it being too obvious either. The top can also be worn untucked for a more flowing look!
If you haven't noticed, I'm OBSESSED with neckerchiefs/bandanas. I wore one in my last post and I'll be wearing one in my next (yes literally, my next post). I think they are the cutest statement and can be worn with almost any outfit. In today's post I'm sporting a random one that I borrowed from my mom's closet (thanks mom!), but I've linked up a similar one here.
