The summer calls for one thing: adventures. Whether you're off to the beach, a lake, a pool, the mountains, or the middle of nowhere, I'm all about it. But summer does pose the issue of what to wear, or, specifically, what not to wear. This is why earrings that won't fall out are so, so important for the warmer months. Personally, I don't want to be worrying about my jewelry while I'm riding the waves or going on a challenging hike.
Usually, I take most of my jewelry off on the road, including my necklaces, all six rings I wear around my fingers, my watch, my fave tiny bracelet, and maybe sometimes even an anklet. But when it comes to my earrings, I feel like I kind of need to have them on in order to feel like myself. It helps to have some go-to pairs that I can ensure won't leave my buds.
Considering the sweltering traits of summer, you can always find me in some type of water, whether it's the lake, pool, or beach. Losing jewelry (and tops and bottoms too, TBH) is all too common. In order to have the most fun while wake boarding, jumping off the high dive, or swimming under the ocean waves, I have to make sure I'm opting for the earring styles most likely to stay on, no matter the adventure.
