Look for Less: Rebecca de Ravenel Bonbon Earrings

Rebecca de Ravenel Bonbon silk corded ball drop earrings look for less knockoff dupe at Baublebar
Ok, by now you've seen these ball drop earrings everywhere. But wow are they fabulous and perfect for the holidays! I've rounded up quite a few ways to get the look for less depending on what you're looking for (and how much you're willing to spend).



The Look for Less: Lele Sadoughi Pearl Bracelet

Get the pearl cuff trend for less.
Pearl embellishments on everything from jeans to shoes have been trending big. One way to get the trend is with a modern pearl cuff bracelet.



Off the Rack: Sugarfix by Baublebar at Target (Some Pieces On Clearance!)

Sugarfix by Baublebar at Target
Yesterday I finally got to browse the first installment of Sugarfix by Baublebar jewelry at my local Target. I've already ordered some pieces online (these earrings in two colors), plus I was gifted a necklace and a pair of earrings for review. I think Sugarfix looks even better in person than online!

I love the mix of on-trend and everyday pieces. But the statement pieces are what I recommend, like the colorful tassel earrings. Pair with an off-the-shoulder top or dress and your spring/vacay/summer look is done. Everything's really affordably priced and you guys, I honestly can't tell the difference between Sugarfix and regular Baublebar! #ourlittlesecret

Many of the pieces are now on clearance, making way for the next roll out (new pieces will launch each month - I'm seeing lots of new pieces online), making this collab even more affordable.

Also, a friendly reminder: Victoria Beckham for Target launches this Sunday, April 9th, in stores and online at target.com (start checking the website after midnight on Saturday if there's something you can't live without!) You can read my initial thoughts on it here.

Would You Wear...The Tiara Trend?

Would you wear a tiara for everyday?
We've all considered the tiara for bridal wear (if not for ourselves, than for others), but what about as an everyday hair accessory? Tiaras were big on the spring 2016 runways but I never considered the trend until I saw how trendsetter Chiara Ferragni (The Blonde Salad) wore her bejeweled headband to the Miu Miu show during Paris Fashion week last month.

Would you wear a tiara for everyday?

Instead of wearing it in an ironic way, she embraced the girly sparkle and paired her tiara with fresh-faced makeup and pretty pastels. The key is in keeping her hair slightly imperfect, the tiara reads fashion forward and not pretty, pretty princess. What do you, would you wear a tiara to your Easter brunch? If so you can shop the trend under $5 below!

Try the Trend: 10 Hoop Earrings Under $30

Jenna Dewan hoop earring trend
I came across a feature recently in the Net-A-Porter trend magazine highlighting modern hoop earrings, and while I've been hesitant to return to this look (I wore hoops all the time...about two decades ago), I'm warming up to the jewelry style as an alternative to my usual diminutive studs. You can go with a simple & sleek modern hoop - which you could argue never really went out of style - as seen on Jenna Dewan-Tatum, or opt for something with a bit more heft and embellishment. Either look can go from day to night, work to the weekend. If you're ready to update your earring game, I've rounded up 10 of my favorite modern hoop earrings on a budget, starting at just $2.90.
