emerald state of mind


Emerald may have been the Pantone Color of the Year for 2013; but even though we're approaching the start of the new year, and the Pantone Color of the Year for 2014 {Radiant Orchid, if you hadn't heard}, I find myself stuck on the Emerald hue courtesy of Blake Lively's penchant for a certain pair of oversize Lorraine Schwartz studs. They're a simple mix of enchanting and elegant; managing to look just as sublime styled alongside tailored shorts as they do paired with an Age of Innocence-inspired fur collar. And, quite frankly, they're an accessory that have left me in an emerald state of mind. Here are my Top Emerald Picks {ideal for holiday soirees, or any time of year}.

ONE: BaubleBar jeweled vine drops {$34.00} TWO: BaubleBar pavé cushion cut studs {$44.00} THREE: BaubleBar emerald lantern studs {$28.00} FOUR: Shay Accessories teardrop crystal border earrings {$288.00} FIVE: BaubleBar emerald plume studs {$32.00}

Though I personally favor an oversize stud when it comes to my emerald cravings; there are a number of high-glam options if you prefer something a little more statement-making...two of which are the BaubleBar Jeweled Vine Drops in Emerald - which feature an earthy, nature-loving aesthetic - and the positively fit for a princess Teardrop Crystal Border Earrings in Gold/Clear/Emerald from Shay Accessories.

My favorite is the BaubleBar Pavé Cushion Cut Studs in Emerald {similar here} for their similarity to the Blake-adored Lorraine Schwartz version; but I'm extremely drawn to the BaubleBar Emerald Lantern Studs for their intriguing aesthetic, which reminds me a bit of lightning bugs. And last, but not least, is the BaubleBar Emerald Plume Studs - it's a chic stud-meets-drop hybrid {perfect for the girl who loves both styles!}.
