It’s amazing the way accessories can change and elevate the look of any outfit, and accessorizing is one of my favorite parts of putting together an outfit. Ever since I got my ears pierced at 8 years old, earrings have been my favorite accessories to amp up my look. I have gone through many phases when it comes to my earring choices (and style choices in general… Let’s save that discussion for another post!) Recently, I have been wearing stud earrings pretty much every day.
My reasons for currently rocking studs on a regular basis:
- They are simple and classic
- They look great when you have your hair up or down
- They are far less likely to get caught on things (a real issue!)
- They allow you to use other accessories & jewelry pieces without being overwhelmingly accessorized (is that even a thing? I guess I just made it one)
I have accumulated quite a few pairs of studs, but the most interesting and unique ones I’ve ever purchased arrived on my doorstep last night. I randomly came across this Instagram page on my “Explore” tab while idly scrolling one night, and I fell in love with the earrings. So I went to her Etsy store and chose a few pairs.
After I completed my order, Etsy informed me that my order would be coming from a town that is only 2 towns over from where I live! I hadn’t even realized where she was located because I’d been so enamored by the stones, and then come to find out they were handmade approximately 20 minutes from where I was sitting. I ordered 4 pairs of stud earrings. The pretty glittering effect that you see on 3 of the 4 pairs is called druzy, and this comes from layering tiny crystals on top of some other colorful mineral. These are DreamOwlDruzy’s specialty. The 4th pair (2nd from the left in the picture) looks like iridescent mermaid scales which will be perfect to wear during the summer. She hand-makes every single order placed through her store, and each pair came even more beautiful than I was expecting. I’m so excited to start wearing these; I think they are going to look great with both dressed-up and dressed-down looks, and I’m already eyeing a few more pairs 😉
Be sure to check out DreamOwlDruzy on Etsy and Instagram (dream.owl.druzy on Instagram)… A great way to shop small (and local for my Northern California readers!)
