 "Fashion is nothing without accessories." I used to have that quote framed and hanging on my wall for good reason. I go crazy at the mere site of handbags, scarves, and especially jewelry. As much as I try to stay away from the sparkling treasures displayed under glass at J.Crew, or the racks upon racks of colorful bits at Forever 21, I always seem to wander over to the jewelry department. "How did I get here?" is what I end up thinking to myself as I walk away with yet another chunky necklace or pair of simple studs.

In an effort to try and reel myself back from buying more and more, I decided to instead appreciate the stand-out pieces already in my possession. I do have some clear favorites that I wear over and over. I know you've seen these at some point, so no real surprises I'm sure.

Rings

Necklaces

Bracelets & Earrings


They cross the spectrum from higher end (Chanel, YSL) to mid (Sonya Renee, J.Crew) to cheaper alternatives (Forever 21, H&M). I'm no snob! When it comes to jewelry, I love it all!

Of course, I will keep adding to my favorites. Bracelets are my new obsession this season, and I want to add more for layering purposes. But, I will be more discerning on future shopping trips. I think quality over quanitity wins out.

What are your favorite jewelry pieces? What are you looking to add to your own collection?

  2. I love your jewelry! I love accessories too and probably spend more on them then clothes :-) I do have to remember what you said about quality over quantity because sometimes that Forever 21 section keeps reeling me in! lol

  4. I agree about the importance of accessories to a look. Right now, I'm loving pearls and monogrammed silver jewelry.

  5. Such a fun post! I love all of your goodies. I'm always buying jewelry too it seems, I love how it can liven up even just basic jeans and teees. Where did you get your spiky bracelet?

    1. The spiky bracelet is called the "renegade" from Stella & Dot. It's my first Stella & Dot piece, but I have a feeling it won't be my last. I love the bracelet because it's so different from what I normally wear, and it layers beautifully!

  6. These are gorgeous!! My mom has the greatest jewels that I love to borrow (for a long time). I feel naked without earrings. I don't leave the house without them

  12. I love jewelry too. I need more rings, in fact I don't think I even have any at all. I always tend to go for the earrings. Forever 21 is great, because the jewelry has great prices, but it's amazing how you much you end up spending on that stuff! Sometimes going for the cheaper stuff isn't such a good idea. I love your turquoise stuff.
