How To Stand Out in Your Next Video Call

I work remotely for a tech company that has a very casual vibe. So, my daily uniform is one of my favorite jogger sets (like this Target pullover/jogger combo that I own in 3 colors) or some combination of my favorite knits. My sets are cute and comfy, but some days (especially those that involve a video call) I just want a little more oomph. I like to throw on some statement jewelry when that’s the case. And, sis, Kendra Scott’s Spring 2021 Collection, which dropped today, is filled with the perfect statement makers. I’ve rounded up my absolute must-haves.

Kendra Scott Natalie Earrings and Cocktail Ring

Since cutting my hair, I prefer wearing smaller earrings. I took one look at the rattan-inspired design on these large Natalie earrings and knew I’d be making an exception. They’re GORGEOUS. I’m designating them my go-to pair for special occasions. But, when my casual knits need a little jazzing up to hop on a zoom call, these earrings do the trick every time. And, the coordinating Natalie cocktail ring? It might be my favorite Kendra Scott ring ever. I talk with my hands just to show it off.

Rebecca Large Long Pendant Necklace And More

The Rebecca necklace is so edgy, from the bold chain to the standout pendant. It’s the best finishing touch for turtlenecks or pullover sweatshirts. It takes those pieces from plain to fashion in an instant. I’m also wearing the Brylee chain bracelet. By the way, the Brylee necklace is another new favorite for dressing up basic knits. I’m also wearing the Natalie ring in this look. I told you it was my favorite.

How To Glam Up From The Waist Up

Zoom meetings. Virtual parties. Drive-by celebrations. What a world we’re living in! I’m partnering with Kiss Products over on Instagram today to share how I get glam (that waist-up glam) for the varied occasions 2020 made the norm. I thought I’d share the look I created here as well. You may already know that I use Kiss lashes and lash glue exclusively (check out my go-to’s here and here). No doubt, they’re my favorite. This particular collaboration gave me the opportunity to try some of the Mink Effect lashes and press-on nails I’d never used before. Spoiler: I’m a fan!

On a typical day these days, my makeup routine is very minimal. But, some days demand that I get a bit more glam. On those days, I’ve been reaching for some key beauty products every time. Items used to create this look are linked above.

A fun feature of the Instagram collaboration is I got try Kiss press-on nails. I can’t remember ever trying press-on nails before. I was blown away by how easy they are to apply. They could be a great alternative to going to a nail salon in these strange times. I love that I can apply (in just minutes) and remove them myself. Kiss sent me some really creative nail designs that’ll be fun to experiment with (no commitment). For this look, I went with an edgy, matte black nail.

Chic Statement Earrings For Fall 2019

Have you all seen the latest collection by Kendra Scott? It’s stunning! I love that the Kendra Scott winter collection drops in October because it’s my birth month, which means I get 50% off any item. Do you take advantage of birthday discounts?

Since statement earrings are having a moment again this fall, I’m planning to get some new earrings. My current favorite style is no doubt, the Danielle Open Frame Crystal Earrings. It offers the classic, sculptural Kendra Scott shape without the weight of the stone. And, the bling on that open frame? Yass! I’m loving every detail of these fall statement earrings.
