Accessories, Accessories, Accessories
It wasn’t until recently that I started to really want to wear more accessories. I mean, I’ve always worn earrings, because, as my mom has always told me, “they brighten your face.” And I agree! I’ve also always worn my “nice” jewelry that has sentimental value to me. Like the necklace Ron gave me for Valentine’s one year, or the jewelry my parents gave me for birthdays. Those are all my favorites and I wear those all of the time, but I’m talking about playful accessories that you buy for yourself just for looks and fun. I’ve never been into lots of pieces at once, but recently I’ve been having a lot of fun layering necklaces and mixing in funky rings just because I can. I went through my jewelry boxes and found all sorts of old costume pieces that I forgot I even had!! Jackpot! It’s such a great feeling to find an old piece of jewelry from 198? that you used to wear as a kid. So special. As a creative, I like to think of myself as a very visual person, so I’m sort of surprised that I didn’t notice (or really care) how a few key accessories could really pull an outfit together. Accessories help polish a look, and if done right, can take a blah outfit to the next level. It took me how long to realize this?! I mean, I’ve seen other people do it and have thought, “that looks nice” but never thought more about it after that. So, now I’m on the lookout for fun and unique pieces and I can’t wait to see what I find next! What’s your favorite accessory? ♥R

I am so bad at accessorizing. I always have one or two necklaces/sets of earrings I like to wear and that’s about it! I like jewelry, I’m just terrible at wearing it!

I’m glad that I’m not alone there! I’m really trying to put effort into it hahahaha but I completely understand how difficult it can be. It must just come naturally to some.
