Hello from St. Louis! Wait no, this is the Chicago Riverwalk… Haha! Gotcha, I am currently in St. Louis for the week BUT these photos were taken on the Chicago River in Montgomery Park. This week I am at home visiting my family, dog(!), and St. Louis. My trip is my vacation this summer and I am excited to be home and in STL for a few days!
I am also excited about these earrings I scored a couple of weeks ago. I had been wanting these since I saw them on the J.Crew website, but I wanted to wait until they went on sale. And boy am I glad I did! I got these bad boys for $25! I had been watching them and their sales closely and snatched them up as soon I saw the deal. But don’t fret! I have some great earrings above that are equally as great!
These are also my first pair of big statement earrings like this. I have always loved the beaded earrings thing but I’ve just never pulled the trigger. However, I love these so much and I didn’t know what I was waiting for! Oh right, the ones I wanted were too expensive… Anyway, I was extra happy for these earrings because I finally found something to match this necklace! I bought this vintage mardi gras bead necklace when I was in New Orleans back in March and I love it and the colors! The only problem was I didn’t really have anything to go with it.
But when I got these earrings home I noticed that they matched the blue in the necklace perfectly and wham bam thank you ma’am now I’ve got a little set! If you’re in New Orleans at any point I highly suggest hitting a vintage store to look at their old Mardi Gras beads!
