before covid-19 quarantine was in full swing, i was in the bay area earlier this month and had dinner with two girlfriends. i had not seen one of them at all in 2020 and she brought my birthday gift bag to dinner. while i loved each item, my favorite was the pair of statement studs from target by the brand: a new day.
for years, i was a huge fan of dangling earrings. then, when i was in grad school and balancing multiple jobs in various environments, including working with kids, i realized studs were the way to go for me unless it was a special occasion. sometimes, they felt a bit boring or just blah. once i found fun studs like these, it made me feel a bit more excited about my look, especially when my hair is pulled off my face (slash thrown into a messy bun/top knot).
what i love is that these earrings are nickel free so i know my ears will not be agitated. another great thing is that this beautiful pair was just under $10! you really cannot beat that. while the selection may vary by store, i have linked my favorite pairs from this particular brand at target if you want to order online (and avoid stores to flatten the curve):
which pair do you like the most?
stay safe out there!
