Hi friends! I feel like it’s been quite a while since I’ve blogged (and it has)! It was a busy, chaotic end to the school year so I took the first couple weeks of summer to relax, catch up with friends and family, and enjoy the sunshine! Now that summer is officially here, I can’t wait to jump back into blogging more regularly.
During my two-week hiatus, I also took some time to plan out what I wanted to share with you guys this summer! There’s lots in store so be sure to stay tuned for summer beauty favorites, the best makeup for those hot summer days, the cutest summer accessories, smart spending tips AND a series! That’s right! I’ll be doing a 3-part blog series on a topic I’ve become very passionate about over the last six months. I can’t wait!
So, to kickoff my blog posts for summer, I wanted to share my favorite summer jewelry trends! I love a unique piece and I’ve scored some pretty cute ones recently.
There are two trends in particular that I’m LOVING this season – druzy and geometric shapes! And if you don’t know what druzy is, you’ve probably seen it before! It’s the exposed/glittery effect of a natural stone. It’s a subtle shimmer and I just think it’s gorgeous when it’s used to make jewelry. I also tend to stick with gold jewelry during the summer months because I think it looks best up against glowing skin!
Keep reading to learn more about my three favorite pieces!
These geometric drop beauties caught my eye right away! They have a loose, clear stone inside each tier which gives them a little extra sparkle. We’re seeing geometric shapes everywhere this summer, especially with home décor, but I especially love the geometric jewelry trend! These are unlike any pair of earrings I have and have ever seen! If you’re looking to snag these, they are not available online but I found them at Dillard’s!
Panacea Druzy Necklace
Like I said, I’m living for druzy this summer. I love when natural stones and minerals are used to make jewelry and I especially love the unrefined, natural shimmer look of druzy pieces. No two pieces are the same! Currently, my fave is this gold fringe Panacea statement necklace that I spotted at Nordstrom last month. Unfortunately this has sold out on Nordstrom’s website but it’s ON SALE on Panacea’s website right now!
Michael Kors Rings
Another one of my favorite looks/jewelry styles is micropave`. Micropave` is when tiny diamonds or other stones are set close together covering the entire surface of the piece. I love a bold, glimmering statement ring for a night out but for every day, I like to throw on more subtle rings like stackable bands. These micropave` MK bands are perfect for day-wear and, although they’re subtle, I get so many compliments on these! The sparkle is small but mighty!
