Simple Studs

I am totally guilty of looking like a giant comforter during the winter months. Why put on a fitted pair of pants to sit in my own home when I can throw on layer upon layer of sweats? There are obvious exceptions to my leggings/sweatshirts/sweaters/t-shirts/socks ensembles—like a date or a party—but day to day, I end up looking pretty plain. Wearing sweats and looking like I’m at the gym can be tiring and invite unproductive behavior; however, with this week’s arctic weather and my reluctance to dress up during winter months, I have been finding small ways to spruce up my look so I can still accomplish daily tasks. I find that wearing a fun pair of earrings can take my look from rolling-out-of-bed to a put together, albeit relaxing, look. Here are a few pairs that have caught my eye. Along with a hairbrush, these earrings have transformed my winter uniform into something a bit more polished. 

Browse a few of my favorites: 


  1. These are all super cute! Love a good pair of studs :)

  2. Thank you! I needed to spice up my parka-inspired wardrobe!

  3. Love this post! I've been relying a little too heavily on the whole comforter look too and need to pull it together. I have the Kate Spade earrings you shared in a dark ruby color and clear and I love them! I can wear them with anything and I immediately feel better.
