My Favorite Gold Hoops

I have totally jumped on the gold hoop train thanks to Luv AJ. A friend asked me for help finding some under $100 the other day so I thought I would link you all to some of my favorites! I have both the Amalfi and the Baby Amalfi Hoops from Luv AJ (linked below) + a really awesome pair from an artist in Asbury Park (similar to the Cloverpost earrings in the links.) Both the Amalfi hoops are super light-weight and the clasp have held up really well so far!

What to Wear on a Summer Camping Trip | Packing List
