It's funny that sometimes I tend to view my accessories as an after thought, or I don't even think of them at all. I love jewelry! I have so much of it, and I never quite remember to put any of it on. I actually had to be reminded of the beauty that accessories can play into an outfit when I started watching the various short videos from Style Like U. My favorite person had to be Lauren Ezersky and her completely amazing jewelry collection. I find myself wanting more unique pieces like the ones she owns, but let's face it. I'm not in a point in my life where I can start obsessively collecting jewelry pieces that start at $1000. My own weddings rings didn't even cost $200...which is the way I like it.
So I felt my outfit today needed to have a more specific vibe to it. I already knew what I was wearing, but I wasn't sure what kind of accessories I'd put with it. My husband begged me to put on my glasses for today, so that was one accessory, but the jewelry part was a little more methodical. I remembered I had gone to an antique store and bought about 12 rings from a bag of junk and had promptly forgot about them. I riffled through my purse and found two that I thought went well with my outfit. Then the Poloride necklace Zach gave me completed my accessorizing for the day. I am taking baby steps right now until I find my stride in jewelry again.
As for the location of my photos, I wanted to check out a park that is in my neighborhood that I haven't visited. True story. This is actually a mass graveyard. The people buried in this park died from Yellow Fever in 1855. It's amazing the kind of history that is right in our back yard.
