my outfit: how big is TOO big?

I happen to be dressing more like an adult lately... notice the earrings.. huh? huh? huh? Well I have a little confession... I am an adult. Not just a crazed mom. Ha!

My kids are with my dad for the week (hello, BLISS!) so I am doing all sorts of fun things like sleeping a full eight hours without interruptions (like, "I can't sleep" or "I can't find my blankie"), eating meals while the food is still hot and the beer is still cold (YES!), and making plans for going to the movie theatre with hubby (for Eclipse) and on my own (for SATC2) and (gasp!) dressing in outfits that make me feel like an adult again!

Take these earrings for instance... I can just galavant around the house in them without the fear of losing a lobe by an accidental yank.



Wearing one big bold accessory like these earrings put me in the mood for something simple and casual. I love a little ying and yang in my outfits. This oversized boyfriend shirt and cut off jeans felt just right.



I have a new "bag du jour"... my plum Mat & Nat has made a reappearance. I just LOVE this bag... the purple is the most perfect shade ever. It seems to just go with anything.



Can earrings be too big? The earrings are Amrita Singh. I have been wanting a piece of their jewelry forever. Very Slumdog-Millionaire-Chic. They were on GILT last week and I decided it was time...

I really love the earrings! and yes, I believe there can be a 'too big' when it comes to earrings (if it hits your shoulder, ease up a little!) but yours are perfect!! Love 'em! Haha, and enjoy your 'grown up' time! Sounds like you have a fun week planned!

Thanks for posting this outfit! I have a very similiar boyfriend tee and never thought to wear it that way!

I do think earrings can be too big, but those are absolutely perfect with the simplicity of the rest of the outfit.

That plum bag is amazing, by the way.

I saw Eclipse with my husband, also saw SATC2 with friends, both are great and I hope you have a wonderful grown-up week!

Love Matt & Nat - I've not see that bag before! It's fabulous!

Love, love, love this! :) Earrings can definitely be too big, but I love these! They totally work with the rest of the outfit since it's so simple.

Maggie Rose said...

Adorable! Earrings are only too big when your earlobes start to look stretched down! Until then it's fair game, and these ones are gorgeous!

Jackie said...

Love this outfit! I remember when you posted about that shirt-I wanted one so bad, but can't bring myself to shell out over $60 for a tee :( Also glad to see the Mat&Nat has made a reappearance-you know it's one of my faves!

I love this look. Not fussy, but still darn stylish! And, did someone get some sun over the fourth of july weekend?! Look at that tan! :)

LOVE the outfit! And I know what you mean about earrings. With a 13 month old, I only get to wear them on date nights. Even necklaces are scarce around here. And you're right, that purple is delicious. Love your outfit posts!

Work it! You are so cute, and I hope you had a great weekend with the hubby!

angeline said...

Beautiful! I love the glamorous simplicity of the whole ensemble.

There is probably such a thing as earrings that are too big. But normal big earrings are awesome.

1. I'm happy to see the bag. I've been wondering if color was heading out in favor of neutrals (as far as bags), but I love color.

2. You are so pretty. Just sayin'.
