x’s and o’s from Bario Neal

unruly things | x's and o's from Bario Neal

I usually don’t get into Valentine’s Day but this year, especially now that I’ve got a kiddo who understands a bit more, I’m way into it.  I’ve found myself drawn to hearts and kisses and anything remotely tied to love.

these X’s and O’s from Bario Neal are just perfect, aren’t they?  as you would guess, I’m dying over those studs.  you could wear them anytime you’re feeling a little love.  and under $100, they make a pretty great gift if you ask me!  find them on Bario Neal’s site here.

wearing : my favorite earrings

over the years, my style has become a lot more simplified.  and one of the ways that I’ve toned down what I’m wearing is by building a little collection of mostly stud earrings.  I found out quickly that while wearing shiny, dangling earrings with a tiny baby was a blast for him, the tugging on my ears was not.  so my dangling earrings dwindled and studs came pouring in.  these are my faves which I rotate on a daily basis.

outside circle : Satomi Kawakita diamond studs, BLTN green tourmaline studs, Jennie Kwon custom reset white & black diamond earrings, Jennie Kwon triangle studs
inside circle : Satomi Kawakita twin pearl studs, Fay Andrada Nasta earrings, my beloved emerald-cut garnets which I received as a highschool graduation gift
and that sweet little wooden bowl I keep them in is from Herriott Grace.
