Hola, amigas! I know, I know. It’s been such a long time since I wrote a blog post. More on that below, but today I’m chatting all about one of my favorite spring and summer accessory trends: rattan earrings! They match with everything, are super lightweight and a fun change from anything I’ve seen in prior years.

Before I talk earrings, I want to talk a little bit about life lately. Nothing bad has been going on at all. We’ve just been flat out busy. Everything from walks to the bus stop, preschool drop off and pickup, classroom helper, baseball practice, soccer try outs, swim team, dance, homework, birthday parties and so much more. Not to mention the errands (SO MANY ERRANDS), our remodel is still not done and we’ve been working on outdoor projects. Whew, I think I could nap until Friday if you let me.
I love this stage of life with my kids. I feel like before I had kids, this was the stage I always dreamed about. And while I love every minute of it, I didn’t realize how much time I’d spend driving around town in my car. I basically live in it, and let’s be honest, my car is a mess. I haven’t made a real meal in ages because there is seriously no time in between activities. My crock pot and takeout have become a way of life. And when life gets busy, some things tend to slip.
Yep, you can see where I’m going with this. My blog. I’ve managed to keep up with my Instagram page and still post almost daily. I’ve even managed to start doing more try on sessions on my Instagram stories and post exclusive content to Liketoknow.it. In case you are clueless, Liketoknow.it is a free app where you can follow me and shop all my looks directly.
But my blog is the thing that has been neglected. It does take time to edit the photos, upload them to my blog, check things like SEO, add in affiliate links, etc.. Forget about actually taking photos and writing the content! That’s what I loved when I started this whole crazy blogger adventure and I miss it. We will see how things go this summer when my kids will be with me 100% of the time.
I want to be the mom doing cannon balls in the pool and not the mom always behind her laptop or on my phone. My son filled out a Mother’s Day questionnaire at school last week and he wrote down that I like to work (aka blog) in my free time. I truly do. This is my happy place, sharing things I love with the world. However, please bear with me as I do my best to manage this crazy mom life and out of control busy schedules.
Onto the Earrings
OK onto the rattan earrings. There are so many reasons why I love this trend. They are super lightweight, have such a fun, beachy feel and can easily be dressed up or dressed down. I’ve worn them with casual rompers, denim and even dressy spring dresses.
It doesn’t hurt that this trend is super affordable. I found a ton of cute styles on Amazon for right around $10 and even the “designer versions” only cost $30-40. Admittedly, I did splurge for the rainbow rattan earrings from BaubleBar because I love them that much, but I also found a similar dupe style on Amazon. I just ordered them last night to test them out myself, and will report back on my findings.
Don’t worry, you’ll still see me rocking some tassels and resin earrings this summer, but the rattan styles are already deep in the rotation. See below for a few more of my favorite styles for spring and summer.
Has anyone else found a pair of rattan earrings you love? What do you guys think of this trend? Finally, if anyone has any tips for this busy stage of mom life, I’m all ears.
