This weekend after staring into my closet trying to decide what I wanted to wear and landing on this checked silk top – I thought about what it is that completes a look. And for me, the answer is more often than not jewelry. Jewelry always gives a look the extra oomph that I am going for. This look, for instance, just didn’t feel quite right to me until I added a wristful of bracelets and layers of necklaces. It’s like a peanut butter and banana sandwich before you add the banana – still pretty great but not quite the touch of amazing you were hoping for. So yes, in this particular instance, my wrists are my canvas.
I guess it’s apparent that I’m a sucker for a good accessory. Luckily working with accessories allows my passion for them to get put to good use. It also motivates me to mix it up since I have come to notice that I do have a tendency to get stuck on a favorite accessory. I’ll end up wearing a favorite ring or necklace five days a week rather than reaching for another equally as fabulous option. Does anyone else notice themselves practicing this favoritism with their wardrobes? Think about it and get back to me.
