Jewelry is the easiest way to change up the vibe of your go-to uniform. It’s an undeniably fun way to express yourself, and I’ve kind of fallen back in love with it lately. Whether it’s layering personalized Zodiac charms or switching it up with some ladylike pearls, there’s no wrong way to play around with your necklaces. It doesn’t have to break the bank either!
Maybe it’s my summer tan talking, but I’ve been layering up on as much gold as I can get lately. Brinker & Eliza’s playful charms feel especially perfect for days at the beach, like this aptly named Sunshine & Lemonade necklace. If you’re into heart charms, it doesn’t get much better than this The Best Is Yet To Come piece. And finally, for all those coin collectors out there, I’m obsessed with the beautifully sketched profile of this Against All Odds coin pendant.
Dorsey is a brand that uses lab-grown sapphires to make high-quality jewelry that you can actually buy. Think of it as an upgraded version of costume jewelry, because these are real stones! I’m obsessed with the James bezel necklace, which is deeply chic, unstuffy version of a tennis necklace. The Campbell graduated necklace has some 80s vibes, but I like it best with your favorite white t-shirt and jeans. And of course, their best-selling Kate necklace is as classic as it gets.
You can always count on BaubleBar for fun, seasonal pieces – and at a price you won’t have to feel guilty about. They’ve really stepped it up lately with their custom compass piece. I love a good monogram, and you can pick any sort of combination from letters and numbers. Their heart-shaped Heirloom piece lets you play around with the same monogram feature.
