DIY Preppy Leather Back Statement Earrings

My love for statement earrings dates back to my 13th birthday when I was *finally* allowed to get my ears pierced! For the last 16 years, I’ve been adding to my ear bob collection and some of my favorite pieces are ones I designed or DIY-ed myself! After seeing THIS pair of earrings, I knew I had to attempt my own “inspired by” version to share with y’all! You can make these earrings with any color combination your heart desires and the best part is they pack a huge statement-making punch without hanging too heavily on your earlobes or your wallet! Scroll down for full video tutorial and supplies list!

Why Festive Ear Bobs Are the New Holiday Outfit

why-a-new-pair-of-statement-earrings-is-all-you-need-for-your-holiday-outfit

Towards the end of the first week of December I start to get burnt out on festive outfits and  begin gravitating towards the two outfits I know I look great in despite not working out and eating every Christmas cookie put in front of my face! I have two current holiday outfit go-to’s which serve for any type of occasion: A.) Something involving a tunic top + fur vest + leggings + boots (all black, obvs.), B.) Something involving an LBD + heels (again, all black, obvs.). I’ll switch between a glossy nude lip or matte red lip, and my hair up or down, but for the most part, that’s it!

However, I have a secret weapon to updating those two outfits, and setting them apart as “special” holiday outfits night after night: Earrings! Sparkly, gorgeous earrings! Yes, my dears, Holly was right; Give a woman the right earrings and she can rule the world! (or something to that effect!)

I’ve linked earrings from my favorite designers from $15 – $350. Click any of the links below to be taken straight to the website the item is sold on (no logging into an app or website rigmarole!)

Purabellezza Giveaway!

 The lovely and talented Loren owner of Purabellezza let me choose a piece to review from her new jewelry line! It was so hard to decide on one thing but as soon as I saw THESE gold and navy stone earrings I knew they had to be mine! There are several things I love about these earrings… 1. they are very light-weight without looking flimsy. 2. The bows are 3D (not flat). 3. The size; big enough to appreciate the details but small enough to not feel like they’re taking all the attention from my face!

There are dozens of accessories to choose from on Purabellezza! A few more of my favorites are THIS pink and gold necklace and THESE floral and gold earrings.

Enter to win $25 to spend on your own one of a kind goodies at Purabellezza by entering the giveaway below! 
Good luck!
