I found these earrings tucked away at the back of my jewelry box. They were a gift, and while they are pretty, there was a time I felt they were just too big and made too much of a statement. It turns out I have grown into the idea of wearing bigger earrings, which is often the case with women. I guess I’m getting bolder, not older!


Jamie from New Mexico is one of my favorite fashion bloggers, especially when it comes to earrings. Her Go Bold or Go Home Style is super creative and chic.
