Statement Earrings

Casual Friday · Office Appropriate Outfits - Winter

Have you voted for your favorite outfit of January yet? Or seen what won for every month of 2014?

For the past 10 or so years my siblings, our spouses and I have drawn names at Thanksgiving to see who we’re buying a gift for at Christmas. This year my 9 year old niece decided that the kids should get in on the action.

So, everyone in our family (all 11 of us total) put our names into a hat and drew. The rules? The gift had to be under $5.

Apparently as soon as my four year old nephew found out he drew my name he knew exactly what he was getting me: earrings.burgundy-sweater-polka-dot-shirt-1burgundy-sweater-polka-dot-shirt-3Sweater – American Eagle Outfitters (same) | Shirt – Forever 21 (similar) | Jeans – American Eagle Outfitters (same) | Boots – Sam Edelman c/o Shopbop (same)

Normally I would wear a statement necklace with a sweater and a collared shirt (as evidenced yesterday) but I thought I’d be a bit different and go with the statement earrings instead.

Especially since apparently my nephew thinks of me and thinks earrings. And he has good taste, I must say.

We all had a blast buying $5 gifts for one another, too. I hope this becomes a new tradition!

    Wow, your nephew has some very advanced jewelry purchasing skills! Haha. Those are great earrings. I don’t wear big earrings all that often (I don’t like feeling like my ears are weighed down) but I think they can be so fun every now and again.
