If you stop by here often, then you might recognize this sweater from last week, where I styled the grey version of it. It’s so soft and I love the side ruffle detail so I had to pick it up in this ivory color too! I’m already in a spring state of mind, which is why I paired this look with my rose-gold sneakers, but I can also envision this with brown suede boots to make it more of a winter outfit.
Onto another topic…I love jewelry, a LOT, but unlike most bloggers who share trendy pieces and fun statement pieces that perfect mix and match with each new outfit, I am all about investing in high quality, classic pieces that I get to wear everyday. I mean, if I spend $$$ on a necklace or earrings, or ring, then I want to be able to wear it everyday without it getting old, right? Enter, stage right my starting lineup: Tiffany & Co pearl earrings, Cartier diamond necklace, and David Yurman cable bracelet.
Okay, I’m completely putting my foot in my mouth though because below I’m wearing one of my favorite (less expensive) necklaces from Madewell. So I guess the best way to sum it up is by saying that I don’t spend money on inexpensive jewelry often, and a lot of of the necklaces I wear (that aren’t my Cartier necklace) are stolen from my mom’s closet. She has the best style!! (Hence for Style Inherited). For me it’s all about balance, but I also recognize that I spend a lot less money on trendy pieces than other bloggers out there. And I’m okay with that!
My mom always stresses the importance of accessorizing an outfit to make it different/put a twist on it, and I get that. I totally get that, but on the other hand I’m kind of just that girl that likes to throw on a few simple pieces of jewelry in the morning, every morning, and not having to worry about if they work with my outfit. So that’s who I am and I like my blog to reflect who I am. I’m not going to pretend to own a different pair of earrings for each day of the month, because honestly my ears get infected unless I wear my Tiffany & Co pearl earrings. Side note: my Mimi (grandma) always told me that meant I had expensive ears! Ha!
I know I have to work on stepping up my jewelry game, at least just a smidge, but I also don’t want to lose/forget who I am and my daily mindset when it comes to what jewelry I put on. Keep scrolling for outfit details!
