One thing I have learned in the past year of blogging: the importance of accessorizing. So, when I had a chance to partner with Kendra Scott for this post, I jumped at the opportunity. Kendra Scott gifted me a pair of earrings to review, but the contents and opinions in this post are my own.
I used to play it extremely safe with jewelry, sticking to simple gold and silver pieces. If I branched out, it was venturing into black and gold. Statement jewelry would be reserved for nights out and evening wear. And frankly, I never thought it was worth the investment, so my collection was not really much of a collection.
But I have seen the sparkling, shimmery light!
After following so many other bloggers and fashion lovers on Instagram, I have a better vision of how to incorporate statement pieces into my every day wardrobe.
Kendra Scott is one jewelry collection I have admired online for a while–like, since the beginning of my Pinterest days.
But I don’t have to ogle online anymore! The designer recently opened a store in my area, so I happily paid a visit. I was immediately impressed with the beautiful, fresh layout filled with baubles organized by color and style. The staff was also friendly, knowledgeable and well-dressed, might I add.
The designs are right up my alley! The pieces are not too flashy, yet they’re still impactful and perfect for enhancing every day outfits. There are also pieces that can stand on their own to dress up a simple T or add a finishing touch to an evening look. All of the jewelry is made with either real glass or stone, so the quality is superb!
While everything in the store was truly beautiful, one pair of earrings immediately caught my eye: the Rumer.
I was drawn to them with animal magnetism. They reminded me of a pair of earrings I used to have from one of my favorite retailers. But my old pair were poorly made and fell apart after a couple of wears. So, I just had to give these beauties a try.
They may not contain jewels, gems or a lot of bling, but they will hardly go unnoticed. The double teardrop shape allows for beautiful movement. Each teardrop is also adorned with gold beads (also available in silver.) The design is simple enough to pair with more casual looks, yet there are enough intricacies to support an outfit for a night out on the town. The quality feels exceptional. They are coated in 14kt gold. They aren’t flimsy and do not feel like they will fall apart after a few wears. They are now one of the most beautiful earrings I own and I know I will be getting a lot of wear out of them! I love how they look with this Calypso St. Barth dress I styled in a recent post.
