I'm sure it's not a surprise to find out that I really like simple outfits - a pretty dress, cute shoes and a belt to top it off. I don’t tend to accessorise my outits much and if I am accessorising then most of the time it’s a bag or when it’s colder, a scarf. Lately though, I’ve been drawn to long layered necklaces and dangly earrings – I’ve been noticing how much they complete outfits on other people and I’m going to experiment!
I own jewellery, but mostly dainty pieces like my little pinecone necklace, and while I’ll always be a dainty jewellery kind of girl, I’m feeling the need for long strands of beads, bracelets and sparkly brooches. This is the necklace I snapped up at the market on Saturday last week. It is long and copper coloured with coral beads adorning the strand at various intervals and to top off the accessories in this outfit, I even wore my straw hat that I’ve been neglecting ever since I bought it at the beginning of summer (sorry for the semi blurry photos though, it was getting late when we took these and the wind was picking up as well as the rain!).
Wearing jewellery is something I really don’t think about most of the time and when I’m running out the door in the morning, all I’m worried about is that I’m actually dressed. So, I'll need to:
a) remember to put it on before running out the door
b) not fidget with it
c) try and get used to putting it on when it's cold in the mornings (I hate putting cold jewellery on on cold mornings!).
So what about you? Are you a skilled accessoriser or do you prefer to keep it simple?
