5 Ways to Wear Statement Earrings

When it comes to putting together outfits, some days jewelry is the last thing I think about. While not an afterthought, I just go for my usual suspects; a few rings, layered dainty necklaces, and maybe simple studs if I’m wanting to feel particularly put together. Other days, I want to wear a killer statement jewelry piece, so I start the outfit with that piece. How to wear statement earrings, for example, means building an outfit up starting with that piece so the focus is really on that!

But just because you’re wearing a pair of statement earrings doesn’t mean the rest of your outfit has to be boring! Keep it casual with an easy graphic tee and jeans with your hair tucked behind your ear, or get fancy with a monochromatic sleek dress. Or play up your statement earrings by using the colors in your outfit to really make them pop!

How to Upgrade Your Outfit with These 5 Jewelry Must-Haves

When it comes to accessorizing I tend to be a minimalist. Don’t get me wrong; I love a good hat, a cute scarf, and a fun bag with an outfit. However, when it comes to putting an outfit together, jewelry is often not my first thought. Things changed when I discovered my favorite rings from AUrate New York and I got hooked on the brand!

It’s no secret that I have a metal allergy to a lot of cheap jewelry. To be honest, it doesn’t prevent me from wearing the stuff. I love a good statement earring, colorful bauble, or cocktail ring. However, when it comes to adding jewelry to my wardrobe that I want to stand the test of time, I’ve learned that it’s important to spend a bit more for a higher quality piece made with materials that will last.

Today, I thought I’d share an AUrate review including some of my favorite pieces from the brand, and what I’d love to add to my collection next!

I Spent $50 on This Outfit // Taking the Thrift Store Challenge

Thrifting is one of my favorite hobbies. Sure, sometimes I completely strike out. But other times? It’s a total gold mine. So when my friend Megan of Diary of This Girl asked me if I might want to take the thrift store challenge and put together a head to toe look together with just $50 and only items we found during our thrift store shopping trip, I said, “Of course!”

We met for lunch, got caffeinated, and then ended up at the Seattle Goodwill in Edmonds. With the big KonMari craze happening, we figured our timing was probably just right. After all, if everyone is cleaning out their closet after watching Marie Kondo on Netflix, then you can bet that the thrift stores will be piled high with the good stuff. One (wo)man’s trash is another (wo)man’s treasure, right?

Right.

So here’s how we did!

How to Ring in the New Year with your BFFs

Who says you have to go out to celebrate the new year with friends? I’ve been fortunate to make a lot of amazing new friends this year, and what better way to toast to the holidays and 2019 than to celebrate with them? That’s precisely why I hosted a fun brunch party at home right in time for NYE!

Disclosure: Thanks to Eliza J Dresses, Chelsea Yaley Designs, and Washington State Wine for helping this celebration come to life! All opinions are my own.

When I started Hello Rigby back in 2013, I never imagined how many amazing women I would be introduced to, and what great friends I would end up with. I’m so lucky to call these (and more) amazing women my friends; I was so excited to host them for a holiday brunch… and proceed to take 5 million photos to document the whole thing. What can I say, blogging is a very strange, but also very wonderful, thing.

10 Ways to Celebrate the New Year with Friends

Are friends coming over tomorrow to ring in the new year? Or maybe you’re looking for inspiration (or an excuse!) to have your friends over sometime soon. Either way, I thought it would be fun to share what I planned for my friends, and some inspiration the next time you host a fun get together at home!

The Best of Cuyana // The Top 10+ Picks that I LOVE

Occasionally someone asks me what my favorite piece in my closet is, or what one fashion item I can’t live without. My mind often wanders from one of my favorite vintage dresses to a favorite pair of ankle boots, but often lands on one of the many Cuyana pieces I own. After all, their carryall tote bag is probably the most life-changing item I have in my closet, and I thought it was about time to share some of my top Cuyana reviews for the products I own and love.

Cuyana Reviews: The 10+ Items I Love + Recommend

Yes, I know. Life-changing sounds a bit extreme. But, as someone who almost always prefers style over function, it is rare to find something that satisfies both so well. Today, I thought I’d share Cuyana reviews and answer some of my most frequently asked questions about each of the items in one place. Is it worth the price? Which pieces are the best? And which size carryall tote is it that I’m carrying all the time anyway?

If you’re curious about the brand, or if one of those questions ever came to mind, then read on for my Cuyana reviews!
