the drama of it all

more times than not, my husband is constantly confused by the amount of accessories i put on for my everyday attire. he thinks i am being "dramatic" when i have a large necklace on or he just can't seem to understand why i possibly need another bracelet when i already own more than i can count on two hands. well, i have come to terms with the fact that the majority of men will never understand why adding a fabulous accessory just makes women feel better!

a friend asked me today to post something about the "essential" jewelry pieces every woman needs in their wardrobe. holy cow, i stressed out about this all day!! everyone has different styles so everyone is going to have a different list of "essentials." here is the shortest breakdown that i can possibly give. pearl/diamond studs, killer watch, opera length pearl necklace, classic gold hoop earrings and at least a few statement necklaces. i have a big red, blue and yellow necklace that are all very unique but that i wear all the time! it is such an easy way to spruce up any outfit!

here are a few pieces that i absolutely love.

anthropologie skystone necklace-$48
i encouraged 2 friends to get this in 2 different colors and they wear it all the time! wear with a yellow shirt to make it pop!

lucky brand stone link bracelet-$35
i just bought this a few weeks ago and wear it all the time!! for an easy outfit add this bracelet to a white tee, boyfriend jeans and simple gold hoops.

tory burch small logo cuff-$95

carolee pearl rope necklace 72"-$60

  1. Kristin!, This was EXACTLY what I was looking for!! I was worried that the bold statement necklaces might be on their way out. The opera length pearl necklace is exactly one of those things you can wear to work or to a formal event and everytime I see one I always think I should buy one but I forget. I'm glad you made this post because it somes up the staples of a woman's jewerly box. I'm so excited to see what your next post will bring... p.s. I didn't get home until late today because... i went out and bought a pair of rider boots. YOU'VE INSPIRED ME!!!
