Statement earrings are a fantastic way to add a little extra to your outfit and can give something basic that extra "oomph". Bonus points if it matches your highlighter!
Unfortunately, earrings are always hit or miss with me because of my past earlobe choices. Sounds strange right? Let me explain...when I was 19 I decided to stretch (or gauge) my three lower piercings to size 2. You can see my second hole is still gauged. And before you ask, yes I only have one earring. When I was 12 my mom didn't want me to get another piercing, but my genius little self was able to convince her into letting me and my sister "split the piercing", you know "because of all the lost earrings I can wear". Although I love statement earrings and how cute they can be! Even now at 27, I'm still debating whether or not I want to go back to gauges all the time. The reason that I took them out was because I had just gotten engaged and I decided that I wanted to wear my grandmothers jewelry. I didn't wear earrings or anything for about a year just so I could wear her opals that she passed down to me.
I've never been good at changing my jewelry and adding all those statement pieces, especially because weight is always an issue. These adorable (and cheap) chunky earrings I wore today would probably be totally fine for normal earlobes, and I did okay, but I only lasted for about 4 hours before I took them out! For all you earring lovers (and wearers) out there, I linked some adorable statement pieces below so I can vicariously live through you!
