As a friendly little reminder – Mother’s Day is May 10. And while flowers are always appreciated – what about a batch of homemade cookies in this sweet cake stand? Or a rose gold ring with her favorite number (or the number of kids!). Fail safe winners also include a deliciously scented candle, carry everywhere tote bag, and pretty printed scarf.
I’ve got two unofficial uniforms – one workday (printed skirt, crewneck sweater, statement earrings, heels) and one weekend (distressed jeans, slouchy button down, sunglasses, crossbody bag). The thing is.. a uniform doesn’t have to be boring.
More than anything, I’m a creature of habit. It’s why I actually enjoy things like a strict half marathon training schedule and why I’m perfectly content to wear the same worn in denim jacket day after day (you guys know the one.. here, here, and here too – sorry, not sorry). But it’s good to shake up the routine every now and then.
Maybe even more so than a great necklace, I’ve realllyyy got a thing for earrings. But with so many different shapes and sizes (don’t even get me started on how long it took me to explain what an ear jacket was to Adam..), it’s good to have a few simple hairstyles mastered that let each pair really shine. So I teamed up with AOL’s StyleList to show you just that.
FOR STATEMENT EARRINGS:
The most dramatic, these always call to mind Old Hollywood glam for me – even if you’re dressing them down. I like to do a deep side part, soft curls and pin just one side back to let the earring really show. (p.s. hover over each pair for more info)
FOR SMALL STUDS:
Small on size but not on style, these are perfect for everything from the office to your weekend runaround. I like to pair mine with an equally no fuss hairstyle like a half pulled back look. Don’t worry if a few face framing pieces fall out, it adds to the throw it on and go feel.
Long and full of movement, these styles beg to shake it off on the dance floor. Or at the very least, be seen. They already call attention to your face (making them perfect for a romantic date!) so I like to let linear or tassel styles be the focus and pair with a sleek, low ponytail. Extra points if you wrap the ponytail holder with a small piece of hair from underneath!
After several beautiful Spring days here in New York, I have zero weather complaints. Even if it means a rainy day here and there. All the better to test out this new waterproof jacket with a cute striped lining, I say! My hair.. on the other hand.. has a different opinion about the rain.
