Do you have a staple accessory that just rounds out your daily wear? You know, that thing you view as an integral piece of your wardrobe? Whether you’re going to the ballet or walking the dog around the block, it’s whatever “completes” you. That thing.
For me, it’s earrings. I LOVE them. Not in a crazy always-with-the-trend way, but rather in an I-just-feel-better-with-them-on sort of way. And because I wear glasses (and don’t normally rock necklaces), earrings are sort of the perfect accessory in my book.
Now that it’s summer, it’s easier to wear the bigger and more involved earrings in my collection with greater ease (no winter scarves to impede them!). Oh so much fun. Also in the vein of summer fun, I’ve been thinking a lot about hikes and picnics and Shakespeare in the Park. This sparked an idea: just like the genius combos of PB&J, Ben & Jerry, and Harold & Maude, why not hunt for a new blend of my current favorite things. So I did. And I now present to you Picnic Earrings—a quirky collection of jewelry inspired by (or that you could happily wear to) picnics!
That’s right, they exist, and they’re wonderful. Check out these super cool picnic-themed Etsy earring artists:
