Everywhere I looked this summer, my eyes were drawn to pom poms. They were on swimsuits, on cushions and bed throws or quilts, and even on slippers, handbags and other garments! I didn't really pay attention at first, but soon I found myself obsessed with them. So were my girls.
So, this made me think. Are pom poms a girl thing? I mean, I didn't really notice the same infiltration of pom poms to men's or boys' shoes and clothes. Certainly the home decor items featuring pom poms were geared towards a more feminine audience, too.
Then I did a bit of thinking. When I think of pom poms, I think of cheerleaders. I think of learning how to make them myself with wool and cardboard and how my mum has taught my own kiddos (my boy and the girls) to do just this. It would be quite easy to be overrun with pom poms at our house if my girls had their way.
What really grabbed my attention, though, were pom pom earrings. I first saw my girl Abby rocking some pretty funky pom pom earrings over on her blog Clothes and Pizza. Check her Instagram here. I love how she rocks them with bold outfits, and so I decided I'd see if I could score my own pair.
