My Jewelry Essentials

Over the past few months, I have really come to find my own personal style, especially in terms of jewelry. I continue to look to social media, celebrities and other bloggers for inspiration, but I can finally say that I know what I like and what works for me. Personally, I am a fan of simple, classic jewelry. Whether it be an everyday watch, a pair of pearl studs or a delicate gold necklace, I love pieces that can easily be worn everyday and that I won't get sick of for a long time. Here are 6 of my favorite pieces I wear time and time again. 

+ turquoise bangle 
A simple pop of color, this Fornash bangle adds a cute touch to any stack. I find myself wearing it more and more, especially with my school dress code. In actuality, I'm a big fan of all of Fornash's bangles and wear them all the time!

+ silver monogram ring 
When I received this ring as a 14th birthday gift, I knew it would be something I would wear forever. The square shape is unique and fresh but classic because of its simplistic monogram. I just ordered a round version as well and can't wait to wear both! 

+ rope bracelet 
I had been eyeing Kiel James Patrick's bracelets forever, and finally took the plunge and ordered one back in the fall. Let's just say I am far from disappointed. The navy and white one I decided on is so fun to wear with a watch or by itself, and I know I'll be wearing it all summer long too!

+ silver watch 
If you're looking to invest in one piece of jewelry, a great watch is my recommendation. Not only does it go with absolutely everything, but it is actually functional and an awesome thing to have for many years. A lot of people like collecting several different watches, but I personally like having one I wear all the time. 

+ gold nameplate necklace 
I was skeptical about this nameplate trend when it first emerged a while ago, but as it began popping up more and more, it really started to grow on me. It's a unique spin on a monogram necklace and adds a cool look to an otherwise boring outfit. 

+ bow earrings 
I received these earrings as a gift, but have noticed myself wearing them for all sorts of occasions, especially more formal ones. They are so adorable and small, but are very noticeable (in a good way of course!). I recommend splurging on a smaller pair of statement earrings that you love for dressier occasions because I can't even tell you how often I grab these out of my jewelry box! (Loren Hope is a great place to do this.)

  3. KJP bracelets are the funnest pieces of jewelry! I agree that it's nice to have a few simple pieces you can wear everyday. I have a drop of pearl necklace on a thin gold chain I wear nearly everyday. But, I've been considering getting some statement pieces like the Fornash bangles. Can't decide on one though because they're all so cute!

  5. Love your essentials! I've had my eye on a KJP bracelet for a while but I'm also really loving the monogram ring and turquoise bangle :)

  6. You have some great essentials (I would love to know where your nameplate necklace is from though!) My essentials are my engagement ring (duh!), an open heart necklace, and pearl studs. They're great everyday pieces that match so much!

  7. I love the gold plate necklace trend! At first I was like you and pretty skeptical about it, but as I saw it more frequently I started to wonder what it'd look like on me and with all my outfits. I finally went for it and got one that says "HOPE" and I absolutely love it. It's become the one piece of jewelry I wear every day!

  8. I’m also trying to find my own personal style when it comes to wearing jewelry, so I’m thankful that I stumbled upon your blog. I love your picks and the way you define each of them. I also have one favorite jewelry, which I wear time and time again, and I think its beauty will shine more if I add some accessories to match it. In any way, thanks for sharing your jewelry essentials, Caroline! Stay gorgeous!
