True story: I used to get seriously excited when spotting a Claire’s. After contemplating my various sparkly choices, I would leave happily with two pairs of shiny new clip-on earrings. Something about dangly earrings swinging about as I walked put a smile on my face.
Today I am a little more grown-up, and while earrings still lift my spirits, I’ve realized they have the ability to lift an outfit as well. My wardrobe, although not minimalist, is on the simpler end of the spectrum. Maybe that’s why I naturally gravitate towards statement earrings, ones that can take a simple outfit to a special place. Below are four pairs I’ve grown to love — some speaking more quietly than others, but all with something interesting to say.
