My Favorite Accessories


Accessories are the one area of fashion that I don't go too crazy over.  In fact, I wish I cared a little more about them because a fun necklace or chunky bracelets can really make an outfit, but I'm usually lazy and just throw on the same things every single day.  Basically I follow the KISS principle when it comes to accessories and just rotate between my few favorite pieces.  Here is what you can find me wearing 99% of the time...

EARRINGS




Nordstrom Precious Metal Plated 1ct Cubic Zirconia 
I LOVE these.  I'm actually on my second pair - I lost my first pair during a jet skiing incident - and honestly see no reason to buy real diamond earrings because of how awesome these are.  I'm constantly getting compliments on them thanks to people thinking they are real and they stay on so well.  Unless you fly off a jet ski going 40 MPH, but that's another story.  

Bauble Bar 360 Pearl Studs
A knockoff to the super popular Dior earrings, these were all the rage in the spring.  They're just fun earrings and help step up an outfit a notch.  I will say that they're a little loose when on so you have to be careful, but they were worth the $28 price tag.

Nadri Round Cubic Zirconia Studs
These are my 'fancy' earrings - they're stunning in person and a little bigger than they may look online.  They're full of bling and bling, making them perfect for a night out!

NECKLACES


Gorjana Taner Small Bar Necklace
I picked this up during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and it was such a great buy at half off.  It's a classic piece that goes with everything, from casual to more dressy to anything in between.  I have it in gold, but kind of want to get it in silver too...

Initial Necklace (similar)
Nick got me one of these for Christmas and I wear it ALL the time, almost every day.  I love wearing it on its own or since it's delicate enough, layering it with other longer necklaces.  It's the perfect dainty piece that adds a little something to your outfit, but doesn't overpower it.

WRISTS



Alex and Ani Pineapple Bracelet
I can't believe it took me so long to jump on this bandwagon, but I finally did this summer and I'm hooked!  The only one I have so far is the pineapple - lots more of them are to be found on my Christmas list though ;)

Michael Kors Runway Chronograph Watch
Three? Four? years later and I'd still consider this a must have piece.  It's a gorgeous watch and goes with everything.  Not too heavy on my small wrists either which was a major selling point.  Another gift from Nick - he does good!
 
I have plenty of other pieces that get worn every once in a while (and obviously my wedding rings), but these are my main stays.  What jewelry do you wear every single day?

  1. We're like the same person, haha. I found myself going yup, wear that, love that, would totally buy that throughout the post. I usually have my wedding rings, a watch and bangle, earrings and a necklace on, the outfit dictates the size of each :)!

  3. I wear my diamond studs Jose got for me a few years ago I never change them unless I'm putting on my pearl studs. I wore the studs on our wedding day so now it's hard to put them on just for any reason haha.. I'll probably put them on every monthversary.. I also always wear my wedding rings. For a while I wore a lock and key necklace Jose got for me but I stopped. Pulling that out today.. Loveeeeeeee the Alex and Ani bracelets, I have two. They are so easy to throw on. I also usually wear my pandora charm bracelet but it's in need of a good cleaning. Xo

  4. I bought a few dainty rings that I've been wearing and I really love stud earrings - those don't hurt my ears and I can wear them with anything!! Alex and Ani is something that I tend to get for others but never myself...maybe I should change that!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  5. I don't wear anything but stud earrings so I am constantly trying to find new ones to mix it up - love those pearl ones! Kate Spade makes a great "diamond" stud too! The pineapple A&A is my all time fave - it just adds so much fun to an outfit and makes me smile when I look at it!!

  6. Alex and Ani bracelets are some of my favorites! They're so easy to throw on and dress up an outfit a touch. I didn't realize they had a pineapple one--it's so cute!
    I just bought a layered necklace with a small bar--I've been wanting one for a bit now. The Gorjana one you got is so cute!

  7. I keep it simple with accessories too, but I wish I could be more creative sometimes. I had that Gorjana necklace in my Rocksbox and loved it but just didn't want to spend the money on it, such a great sale find!

  8. That watch is GORGEOUS! Michael Kors and Marc Jacobs have my favorite watches... I think one of them might be my next splurge!

  9. I'm very into simple and classic accessories too! I very rarely wear anything chunky or big - with the exception of the occasional statement earring ;) Love these picks of yours - check out Express earrings, I've found such cute dainty pieces there recently! xx

  11. Did you catch Bauble Bar's sale the other day? I scored some earrings for $10!

    ReplyDelete
  12. That watch - YES! I'm not much of a watch person since I usually only wear heart rate monitor watches :) but I'm really starting to notice & want these pretties!

  13. I have those Nadri studs and loooove them! I love delicate necklaces and love wearing my David Yurman necklace. Alex and Ani are my fave I love pairing multiples together and can't wait to keep adding to my collection!

  15. Those bauble bar pearl studs are so classic and chic - so pretty! And you know I'm loving that pineapple bracelet, I think that needs to be my next Alex and Ani purchase <3

  16. I love your picks! I have some knock off Dior pearl earrings and wear them all the time.

  17. My watch is always on mainly because I need the second hand for counting respirations but that means I can have a stylish work accessory right?

    ReplyDelete
  18. I have the same "diamonds" from Nordstrom's and people are shocked they aren't real!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oooh I love that little Alex & Ani pineapple!! I also have a Michael Kors watch on my imaginary bucket list... someday :)

  20. i am the exact same with accessories - KISS. i wish i was more into them, like you said, they can make or break an outfit. but to be honest, most of the time accessories annoy me. i can't handle anything on my wrists, and sometimes my ears hate earrings (long story). i always love a good necklace though! but yeah i have 3 hahaha and i basically only wear those.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love that Alex and Ani pineapple bracelet...their products are always so fun. I am saving up for something from Kendra Scott now, so I am hoping that'll be next accessory purchase!

  22. I'm terrible at accessorizing! I have a pair of pearl earrings I wear daily and my wedding rings and then one more ring on my other hand. My newest accessory is the Fitbit! Haha. Love those necklaces you shared. I really need to try harder. Haha

  23. I am about a few great everyday pieces. I think something you really love and love to wear makes a bigger statement than anything else!

    ReplyDelete
  24. You're right- I do love my 360 studs, but they happen to fall off quite a lot. Luckily I haven't lost any parts yet!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I feel the same way about the MK watches. I still wear mine all the time and love that they’re not super heavy or bulky!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love Nadri accessories! I have a few of their bracelets. But I'm so basic with jewelry... It's as if o simply do not have time for that step of the getting ready process. I rarely even take off my pearl earrings.... Kinda gross!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love accessories, I just have a hard time remembering to put them on and with what outfits, ha! Even with my earrings, I'm bad at changing them out all the time.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love accessories, but I feel like unless I'm doing some major outfit planning I wear the same classics frequently. I love bar necklaces and purchased one in silver and gold because I love layering them and they go with everything!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love each of those earrings!! I've always wanted a 360 pair like those pearls and I also lose earrings too frequently to justify purchasing diamonds. I'm definitely going to have to check out those CZ ones :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I wish I accessorized more too! Like you I have my staples that I rotate through (pearl studs being one of them!), but I have other jewelry that's really pretty - I just don't think to wear it.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I've been on the hunt for a great pair of diamond studs, so I'll check out those from Nordstrom! That Gorjana necklace is in my current Rocksbox set - it is a great piece for everyday wear.

  32. I love those CZ earrings from Nordstrom. I'm adding those to my Christmas list! I like that initial necklace, too. I am the same, I just wear the same accessories over and over again. xo, Champagne&Suburbs
