I’ve been buying fun, costume-y jewelry for years. Some of it I get rid of, some of it I keep forever, and most of it – well, I never actually wear it.
But I’m turning over a new leaf. Not a resolution really, but I’m trying to put some effort into getting dressed every morning. I’ve always been of the opinion that if you look good, you feel good. And I need all the feeling good I can get this winter!
I have had my eye on this necklace or a version of this necklace for a few years now. Because of the price, and the number of times I would have actually put it on (zero), I’ve declined. But as of today, I have successfully worn something other than my stud earrings and my wedding band, three days in a row!
What can’t you wear this with? A strapless taffetta dress. A white, slub t-shirt and jeans. A cashmere twinset and pencil skirt. A button down flannel shirt (as long as it’s a flattering cut) and a wool mini… the possibilities are endless. And it’s such an effortless way to say, “Hey, I put some thought into getting dressed today!”
It might just be time to spend a little of my Christmas money…
