Everyday Jewelry

I wear jewelry everyday and I find myself reaching for the same pieces more often than others. Pearl studs are my go-to earrings. They’re classic, polished, and work well with any outfit. For daily wear, I usually sport a pair of faux pearls. In fact, I can’t remember the last time I wore a pair of earrings that weren’t pearl studs. For special occasions, I break out my favorite pair of saltwater pearls that are usually kept in hibernation. Even though I usually reach for pearls, I’ve had my eye on this pair of Tiffany & Co. earrings forever. Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, right?
Speaking of Tiffany & Co., another piece I wear daily is my Tiffany tag bracelet. I received this bracelet as a gift in high school from my parents, and unfortunately, the exact style is no longer made (see updated style here – the new version varies only slightly from the old). The chain link bracelet is a timeless piece that never goes out of style. It’s perfect for layering or wearing on its own. I also love the David Yurman two-tone link bracelet. You can never go wrong with simple pieces!
The last piece I wear daily is my David Yurman Petite Albion Ring. It’s been posted a time or two on my Instagram and mentioned before in previous posts. This is hands-down my favorite piece that I own. It’s an elegant, yet simple, classic style that looks perfect on the hand. Do you see a trend here? I’m all about classic, timeless pieces! I tend to reach for dainty and elegant jewelry over trendy costume jewelry or statement necklaces. Don’t get me wrong, I do own plenty of statement necklaces! I just think they’re better suited for a night out than at the office or in class.
I can’t forget to mention my trusty Michael Kors watch. I have the rose gold Dylan style (currently on sale!) that I wear when I’m going for a more casual look. I like oversized boyfriend style watches, so this was a perfect pick. The rose gold is a beautiful hue and really compliments many looks. I “store” most of my everyday jewelry (except my Yurman ring) in this pretty catch-all dish that I picked up last summer. It’s such a fun (and practical) way to display and keep the pieces I reach for often!
Off topic, but let’s talk March Madness! I’ve got to throw in a shout-out to my men’s basketball team. The University of Wisconsin Badgers are no longer Sweet, we’re Elite! This week my boys pulled out a grueling win against the University of North Carolina in the Sweet Sixteen round of the tournament. Now we’re Elite Eight bound! So proud of my team for all of the hard work they’ve put in this season. Who are you rooting for?
