As much as I love pink dresses, colorful separates, and pastel accessories, I can’t resist a classic black and white outfit. When I stumbled upon this striped lace back sweater at Nordstrom, I fell head over {red} heels in love. It’s available in four colors, and the striped version was definitely calling my name. Regardless, I made sure to pause and think through it before making the purchase. Over the years, before buying something new, I’ve learned to ask myself, “what could I wear this with?” I knew right away that this black and white stripe sweater would work perfectly with my favorite black tassel earrings {only $29!} and quilted black bag.

Lately, I’ve been drawn to statement earrings of all shapes and sizes (as seen here, here, and here). They work perfectly to dress up an otherwise simple outfit or to infuse the perfect amount of color to any look! My personal rule for a bold earring is to minimize the rest of my jewelry in order to create balance. What are your favorite accessories? Do you have any personal guidelines for your jewelry?
