summer gems

aaaand I’m baaaaaack! whew, sorry for the extended silencio CPs- work has been crazy and lovely weather has kept me outside otherwise. today I’m going to share my favorite summer jewelry staples. anyone who knows me (or has seen the top of my dresser) knows I have a thing for jewelry. a BIG thing. so it’s only fitting I share some major picks- I’ve grouped them into 3 types, perfect for any and all of your warm weather occasions.

#1 Fun earrings for wearing your hair down– for me, warm weather means being as low maintenance as possible.  theres something so easy breezy beautiful about a long maxi and letting your hair dry naturally- especially with some sparkly chandelier earrings caught up in the mix. (take a cue from MK- left) here are some of my favorite styles currently.

2) brights! about as groundbreaking as florals for spring, I know. I’m sure yall are all like “JL, bright colors for summer- that’s the best you got?” but seriously- if there ever was a season for bold and bright, neons and turquoise, this is it. I’ve been swooning over this elizabeth cole bib necklace for ages- so fresh with a sleek white dress or ruffled silk tank.

3) Dainty jewels to never take off – while it may seem counterintuitive to wear your nicest jewelry in months when you’re running, swimming and hanging out in the grass, there is nothing worse that having your fingers turn green from cheap jewelry. going along with my ‘no muss no fuss’ trend, I typically wear dainty little pieces every day that never have to be taken off. the plus side of wearing nice jewelry a lot is that they typically have much better clasps and latches to keep things on.
