Making A Statement

Earrings: c/o Brynn Hudson || Jeans Jacket || Jumpsuit (old similar here) || Shoes || Bracelets || Necklace

Happy (Mommy) Monday everyone! I don’t know about you, but these few weeks before the chaos of the holidays start to set in are my absolute favorite. It’s like the calm before the storm if you will.  I also love the weather in September and early October, it is cool enough to throw on a jacket, but still warm enough that you don’t have to bundle up.

I also love that this season we are seeing tons of statement jewelry pieces and while I have always loved large statement necklaces (with the right outfit of course),  I have always been a little leery when it comes to oversized earrings. However, lately, I have found myself eyeing tons of oversized earrings including this fun style from Brynn Hudson.  There is something about adding a statement pieces of jewelry to your outfit that  just makes you want to go out to a fancy dinner or a party with friends.  The piece can instantly elevate even the most causal t-shirt and jeans to the next level.

If you haven’t heard of Brynn Hudson before, you should definitely head over to their website to see the full collection of not only earrings, but necklaces and bracelets too.  And, as always don’t forget to head over to see how my other favorite and fashionable mamma bloggers styled their pieces.




 Oh, and you might notice one name is missing from the usual MommyMonday list, that’s because Katie had her beautiful baby girl a week ago.  If you want to see incredibility cute baby photos (as well as some of the most incredible DIY before and after’s) head over to her Instagram and blog!  Enjoy the week!

(Thank you to Brynn Hudson for the beautiful earrings!  All thoughts and opinions on this post are my own.)
