If you've followed my blog for a while now or follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I wear the same jewelry pretty much every day. Occasionally I'll throw on a statement necklace or a strand of pearls depending on the occasion, but for the most part, I stick to my staple jewelry. I used to think that I was weird (and a bad blogger!) for doing that until I read an article that Kate Middleton does the same thing with earrings. If it's good enough for Kate, it's good enough for me. Above are the pieces that I wear basically every day, with the exception of the earrings; I alternate the earrings depending on my mood.
I worked with Lauren at Rose Water Designs to create this necklace, and it's one of the most special pieces of jewelry I own. The roman numerals on the necklace are the date that I was declared cancer free, and 2016 marked five years cancer free. I wear it almost daily as a reminder of where I've been and what I've overcome, and it was a major comfort to me when I had a cancer scare this spring.
Gucci Watch (similar option)
My dad bought me this watch for my 25th birthday, and I wear it every day. Previously I wore a really dainty watch with pave diamonds around the face, but I have retired that one to my "event watch." The sleek band on this watch makes it perfect the perfect watch to wear to work every day. (And yes, I am one of those weirdos who wears their watch on the same arm that they write with. I can't help it!)
Lilly Pulitzer Bow Earrings (similar option)
I rotate between these earrings and a pair of Kendra Scott earrings. The gold bows are classic, but don't really stand out unless I wear them with a ponytail. I love that I can wear these earrings to work, to events, and on the rare occasion that I go out.
I purchased these when I went to visit Nicole in Nashville for her birthday. I don't wear much green, but I knew the emerald would look really nice with the abundance of navy and black in my wardrobe and would be a great color for fall. If you're looking for a great pair of every day earrings, I highly recommend getting a pair of Kendra Scott earrings in a color that's versatile.
I wear three rings every day - a thin channel set band on my right ring finger, my Kappa Delta ring, and a David Yurman cable band (not pictured.)
My mom gave me the channel set band my senior year of college, and I'm pretty sure that if I was a piece of jewelry, I would be this ring. It's dainty, practical, and it doesn't ask for attention, but when the light hits it right, you get a little sparkle.
I purchased the David Yurman band on a whim because I thought I needed another ring. (I totally didn't, but I ended up keeping it because it's classic and went well with the other rings I wear.)
My mom bought me the Kappa Delta Sorority emerald ring my freshman year of college as a Christmas gift, and I've worn it every day since then. It's a nice reminder of college memories, as well as women that I look up to.
What about y'all? Do you mix up your jewelry day to day or do you stick to the staples, as well? Any suggestions on pieces that I should add to my daily rotation?
Happy Tuesday friends!
