My Current Favourite AccessoriesWednesday, April 29, 2015
Just as a makeup look is not complete without curled hair and a good pair of lashes, no outfit is complete without a few accessories. Those tiny little accents and pops of colour can say so much about your personality and how you look at the world. I'm not actually a huge fan of jewellery, I like simple pieces that go with everything and the occasional statement necklace but I am not the kind of girl who has a million rings and a tangled hoard of necklaces. I like to keep it simple with sleek pieces I can mix and match, I prefer pieces that are smaller but that have little peeks into my favourite things.
On the day to day, I usually only wear a couple of rings and my watch but sometimes I will add a simple earring or a bangle. I tend to stay away from necklaces because I wear my Nana's cross on a chain and I have not taken in off since she passed. After looking through my collection it seems that I prefer gold but I do wear a mixture of both gold and silver, my promise ring is silver but my favourite accent rings are gold as is my watch.
I love to have little reminders of the things I love in my accessories so I tend to buy delicate pieces with bows, hearts and pearls. Three of my favourite things that make me smile when I see them. I don't like to spend too much on such simple pieces of jewellery so all of the rings above are from Forever 21 and I think they are fantastic, they have lasted for such a long time and I have had no issues. My Michael Kors watch is my love, it is something that I have wanted for a very long time so I am so grateful to have received it as a gift. The bow bangle from Kate Spade is another item that I have lusted after so I was so so happy to receive it from the beautiful Michelle from Teach In Fashion.
My promise ring and birthday ring were both gifts from my amazing boyfriend and they capture my style perfectly as do my little earrings. I love anything vintage and I feel like I was born in the wrong decade. I adore absolutely everything about the design and craftsmanship in vintage jewellery (particularly 20's & 30's) and I am always drawn towards anything vintage inspired. Most of the pieces in my collection have a hint of vintage inspiration to them and I actually own a few vintage pieces. Since I re-pierced my ears I have been addicted to wearing these gorgeous little grey drop studs from Forever 21 but I only wear them alone because I don't like to have too many pieces on at once.
My accessory style is very simple, I like classic, delicate pieces that add to my appearance but don't overwhelm. What is your accessory style? What do you wear everyday?
