How To Wear Statement Earrings, Picks Under $50, What I'm Wearing & Ginger's Linkup #15

Who doesn't love a great pair of statement earrings, a gorgeous bracelet or a beautiful necklace?  With Valentine's Day coming up, I know a lot of you ladies are thinking about what to wear, and we all know that accessories can make (or break) the outfit! I'm really loving simple hair styles, like this top knot with bright lip stick and statement earrings. It's really kind of a messy, elegant look.  I've been looking at a lot of cute jewelry lately, and I've rounded up a ton of picks for you...all under $50!



What have you guys got going on this week? It seems like the first of the year has absolutely flown by! This past week, I stayed totally busy running our dogs around to various appointments. If you follow me, you know I have a Poodle, a Lhasa and a German Shepherd. When you have three pups, their schedules can be worse than yours! Plus, when some of them get older, they have little health issues that must be tended to regularly. I wouldn't trade it for anything though, because my pups bring me so much joy. One is barking at me like crazy as I type this...wanting something! People ask me how do I stay thin, or what's my exercise routine. It's really just not getting to sit down for more than five minutes at a time without one of these babies wanting/needing something.

My hubby and I went out to dinner on Friday night, and I got the chance to wear this fabulous ivory bell sleeve cashmere sweater. These double bell sleeves just make me happy! I paired this great sweater with a pair of corduroy leggings and boots with heels. 




Okay, without delay, on to the great jewelry! I have linked all of my faves below...just click the photo to shop. 

If you decide to incorporate statement earrings into your look, I suggest that you wear a lightweight, delicate necklace, so as not to overwhelm your look with jewelry. There are so many great options for delicate necklaces today. I love the personalized bar necklaces, and I love the delicate lariat necklaces. With the bar necklaces, you can layer another small, delicate necklace for a super cute look. I just think the lariat necklace is so pretty, and I've linked several great options for you.




I love the super cute tassel earrings and fan earrings, and they come in so many great colors! Of course, I've linked some red and pink earrings for Valentine's Day! However, you don't have to wear pink or red. You can add in a pop of yellow, which looks great with your pink or red outfits. Perhaps you prefer to wear a black outfit, and then a great pair of red earrings with a little gold necklace is just gorgeous!



I hope this provides a little inspiration for your date night jewelry or Valentine's night jewelry. I love great, affordable pieces, so that fact that all of these picks are under $50 is a huge bonus! For Valentine's Day gift ideas, check out my two most recent posts here and here .

  7. I would love to try a tassel earring sometime! For some reason statement earrings scare me a bit. Perhaps I'm afraid they'll just overwhelm me. Proportion seems critical. Love the assortment you picked!

    1. Awe, thank you! I'd love to try more of these types of earrings, but my ears are sensitive to metals. So, I pretty much stick to real, rather than costume. I just love the way they look on other people though! Have a great week!

  16. Hey, Julie! Thanks for the shoutout. I actually changed the name and url of my blog. So it's Fiercely Fat at http://fiercelyfat.com. As for jewelry, I'm not much of a jewelry hound as my mother and tend not to wear earrings because my ears are not pierced. Anyway, I love the necklaces though, it's super cute.
