My day to day earring routine is pretty simple. I usually just opt to wear my pearl studs and am satisfied with that. From time to time though, I make the extra effort to switch things up and swap out my pearl studs for something special. In the summer, I think hoop earrings are a great option as they pair well with your hair pulled back, my hairstyle of choice in the summer heat. Recently, I dressed up a pair of simple hoops using a few easy steps and some beads. Best of all, it is easy switch out one color or type of bead for another to change the look of the hoops.
