If you’ve seen me in public chances are I am wearing a pair of earrings. I don’t usually leave the house without them. When I was younger my ears used to be super sensitive to earrings and I would get so frustrated that my friends could go into any store in the mall and buy a pair, throw them on and never have their ears hurt!
I think when I was in Grade 11/12 I noticed that I could start wearing cheap earrings and my ears didn’t hurt! Well I became obsessed in the winter break of my first year in university. I was in a little store in Paris and I found a bunch of amazing earrings that the shop owner had brought back from his travels around Africa. So I bought a pair (more like a few pairs) and voila, the obsession had started. This semester, some of the girls have been calling me the Earring Girl and they say I have given them earring inspiration!
I pretty much buy a new pair of earrings every time I go somewhere new now and also my sisters and mom have helped with my addiction so when they go somewhere they pick me up a new pair too.
Of course when I went back to Paris this year I had to add to the collection and I found myself two of my new favorite pairs!
I’ve already added a few new pairs to my collection in Barbados and I am sure I will add more by the time I leave! If you want to start your own collection, it is a process! Don’t just buy a bunch of random earrings at the same store. It’s like buying a wedding dress, take your time and you will find the perfect pair, plus the hunt is half the fun!
I would love to see your earring finds, so tag me in your Instagram pictures or post in the comments!
