I definitely have come to appreciate her advice. There's really not an easier way to complete your look; Put your earrings on every morning, and you'll walk out the door looking polished and ready.
Always try to keep one good pair of gold or sterling earrings. You'll get years of use out of them, and they'll match anything.
Here are three timeless, go-with-anything styles. Choose your favorite in a shade that flatters your skin tone, and you'll be ready from a Hot Mess day to your Sunday Best:
My Mother's Signature Look: 9mm Gold Ball Earrings For a look that's classy, understated, and always perfect, follow the lead of the Mother of All Earring Experts. She wouldn't steer you wrong.
For My Sister, It's Princess-Cut Diamond Studs She's moved up a few notches from that first little microscopic pair she got as a teenager, but she's always sparkled with timelessness in diamond studs. Regardless of size, a nice pair of diamonds or CZ's will carry you with style from the gym to a night out.
My All-Time Fave: 1 1/2 in Gold Hoops Pretty yet easy-breezy, I've always liked the way hoops add a little length without being too flashy and dangle-y ( I'm sure that's a real word in earring language). I prefer light-weight styles with a hidden-wire closure so the post doesn't show.
"Earrings light up the whole face," my mama always says. Listen to mama. Go get yourself one good, timeless pair of earrings to keep in your jewelry box. After all, you're going to need something to wear while you watch all that basketball!
You are so Cute, Smart and Organized!
