Vacation season is right around the corner. When I’m planning for a trip, I always try to pack light with outfits and accessories I can mix and match. It saves space for shopping and makes it easy to put together outfits without having to overthink them. Chunky earrings take a minimalistic, neutral-toned backless dress and elevate it for date night or cocktails at golden hour.

There’s nothing I love more than lounging around in a bikini and working on my tan. I like to keep it lowkey by the pool with a sleek back bun, which means it’s the perfect time to wear gold statement earrings. They instantly make it feel like I’ve put a little bit of effort into my pool side outfit and are the perfect match for a pair of oversized shades.
