If you couldn’t tell from yesterday’s post, I’ve been on a bit of an earring kick lately. So much so that I’ve actually added two new pairs over the last week: Tory Burch monkey hoops and petite tassels from J.Crew. Even if I hadn’t mentioned it last week, I’m sure you could tell the monkey earrings were destined to be mine. I talked about them last fall, right after the Tory Burch runway when they were available for pre-order, and again when the full spring jewelry collection was online. I purchased them as my annual “Tax Return Splurge,” so even though they’re wildly indulgent, I don’t feel too bad about spending the money on something so quirky. They’re sturdier than I expected and they do feel a little heavy after wearing them for a full day. The other pair, the J.Crew tassels, were an impulsive purchase this past weekend. We spent Saturday night in Milwaukee and stopped at J.Crew (not surprisingly, their store is larger than the one in Madison). I spotted the earrings on a table display as I was leaving and couldn’t resist. They have a nice weight to them, which I wouldn’t have guessed from the stock photo.
