My jewelry collection hasn’t grown that much over the last several months (although I’ve yet to introduce the charm bracelet my partner gifted me for Christmas/my birthday!), but I’m slowly introducing new earrings whenever I get the chance! Before COVID when I didn’t have a mask on my face 90% of the time (only to be taken off when I’m at home), I used to wear the biggest, boldest, and brightest earrings I could find (remember this post where I shared my entire earring collection?). I bought as many geometric koa pieces from Nā Mea Hawaiʻi as possible within a short time span and I wore them with absolutely every outfit in college. With the introduction of masks though, it’s more difficult to fit my glasses, mask, and earrings all in one tiny area. Because of the side-face spacing issue, I’ve been wearing smaller and daintier pieces like these three new earring additions, which are all two inches or smaller. The first of the three new earring additions is the tiny gold hoop from Madewell that I found at a Nordstrom Rack in Seattle (I can’t find them online, but here’s a similar option). These hoops are perfect for every day as they’re not too invasive while matching all of my colorful outfits. Since they’re a bit more classy and rustic, I find they look cutest with my youthful sun dresses. The Conch Shell Front Facing Teardrop Earrings are another Madewell pair I bought at Nordstrom Rack and they’re my current spring/summer favorites. I love how the gold blends with the pastel pink and opal shells for a unique look. The last of my three new earring additions came from TheCoffeeBeanShop on Etsy and they’re these handmade ACAB dangling bits! When I want to wear my politics as close to my face as possible, I’m reaching for these (on the daily of course). I think I’ll style the earrings with braids or space buns and pop of color on the lips!
