Anyway, enough rambling about the future! I wanted to do a quick post and show you all the way I have been storing/showcasing the jewelry that I wear on a day to day basis. I have a jewelry armoire (which I love) but to be honest, I always felt like I needed to have pieces that I want to wear regularly laying out so I can see them and remind myself to wear them (sounds silly, but it's the truth). If everything was all crammed into a jewelry box, I found myself just skipping jewelry for the day because I didn't feel like searching through all my drawers and compartments. So when I moved home, I decided to use an extra little accent table (super cheap, from Target) to store jewelry that I wear pretty regularly on. I also bought a little hook with a fleur de lis on it from Hobby Lobby for about $2 to hang my big bulky necklaces. The end result is pictured below:

I love how I can see everything so clearly. It usually takes me less than 2 minutes to rummage through it all in the mornings and figure out what I'm wearing for the day. The plate is actually from the Dollar Tree, the bracelet holders are from Michaels (watch out for a sale, you can easily get them for 40% off) the apothecary jars are from Hobby Lobby and I got them half off. They hold all my stud earrings (one for silver, one for gold). The bracelets are also separated by gold and silver if you couldn't see that in the pictures. My Michael Kors watches are all just sitting on the cases they came with. And as I mentioned already, the necklace hooks are from Hobby Lobby and just hold all of my bulkier 'statement necklaces'. The pile in the middle of everything are just items that I haven't worn yet, so they are still in their packaging.
I plan on getting a white table just like this turquoise one when I go to Ikea this weekend because I would really like to figure out a place in my new room or closet to do this same thing. I've grown accustomed to seeing everything and would love to incorporate it somehow in my apartment. I hope you all get inspired by this post, and get some ideas for your own jewelry collection! Thanks for reading :)
