Sometimes I feel like the song “I got it from my mama” is about my life.
Not only did I get a lot of my personality traits from my mom, but I’ve also picked up a lot of her style over the years.
Is she trendy? No, not at all, and she’s the first one to admit it. My mom is all about her classics, and normally they come in navy, camel, olive, browns, or whites, with hints of black mixed in. I used to fight with her when when I was younger when she would tell me how nice I looked in a classic piece, and instead I would pick out what was trendy at the time. And this was whether or not it looked good with my body type.
Over the past year I’ve found myself not only borrowing my moms things more, but also putting together outfits and then texting her and saying “I look just like you”!
One of my favorite photos of my mom is actually her high school yearbook photo. She just looks so effortless cool and pretty in it. She also happens to be rockin’ the perfect pair of everyday hoop earrings. Don’t worry Mom, you still rock them just as well as you did then!
So what is the key to the perfect pair of everyday hoop earrings?
It’s quite simple actually:
- Use a quarter for reference, and ideally try to only go a little bit bigger than one.
- Go for a thinner hoop so they look more delicate.
- Go with the best quality you can find.
To explain bullet #3: If your budget allows for it, I would recommend getting at least sterling silver or 14K gold hoops. My reason is because they won’t lose their shape and they won’t irritate your ears, like an inexpensive pair. No you don’t need to spend $1,000 on a pair, but investing in the best quality you can will not only be more comfortable for you, but will also last longer. You know I’m all about investing in classics!
Where did I get my perfect everyday hoop from?
From Gold Creations, which is located in Charleston, SC, which I was introduced to by my friend Ashley when she moved to Charleston. I have the 35mm hoop and am not even exaggerating when I say I wear them at LEAST 3x a week. I honestly feel like they match almost every outfit and instantly add the perfect touch of dressiness.
As I mentioned in this post recently, I really don’t wear a lot of jewelry. So for me to wear these as often as I do, you know they have to be good. Not only do I find the size to be perfect (but if you’re a little smaller than me, I’m 5’9″ for reference, they do carry a 25mm version as well), but I also love the color. They are the perfect skin complementing gold, and I get a ton of compliments on them. This just shows that they might be simple, but they sure are eye catching!
