Or in this case, if the earring fits. There are days when I absolutely fixate on the need to dress around one item. This time around it was a pair of earrings. I don’t have many earrings, as you may or may not have noticed. You know I love my big blondes, as shown here, but when I laid on eyes on these

it was love at first sight.

They are opaque glass in the palest minty green. That’s right, glass. They’re light and the swirls remind me of a DNA strand. They’re beautiful and yet a little strange. Love. Sometimes, it really is that simple.

I kept the accessories to a minimum to allow the earrings to really stand out. The exception was this vintage rose brooch that my mom gave me. It added the perfect touch to the outfit without standing out.

It really is ok to dress around one item but when you do, make sure you let is shine. Don’t take away from your statement piece with too many distractions. The pattern on my dress was light and soft, the pale pink of my cardigan complemented the softness of the earrings.
