Fun fact: I’m actually really terrible at accessorizing, that is why I tend to focus more on my outfit, making it look nice, so I don’t have to wear any accessories.
But lately I’ve realized I’ve been missing out. I recently became the photographer at my church, which requires me to wear all black and although wearing all black is great, I just realized how bland it can look without a pop of something. The only thing I could think of was accessories.
Honestly, I don’t know why I’m not much of an accessory person and maybe it’s because I just rather spend my money on an article of clothing rather than some trinket, but I forced myself to look for something to compliment my all black ensemble, and well now I’m obsessed.
I started at H&M looking at rings, because rings are safe, I mean they go on your fingers and not a big deal to anything. I bought the rings (shown above) and absolutely fell in love! Sadly, I already lost one because they were kind of loose, so that was a bummer. But I loved that it was a pair of four and two of the rings are connected by a chain so it gives it a cooler factor and I basically wear them all the time to accentuate my fingers!
But the hardest thing for me has been necklaces, well honestly it’s bracelets but since I haven’t gotten any of those yet, we’ll skip over that. I have a hard time with necklaces because they are on your neck and there’s such a variety of things you can do with them. I’ve always geared into long chained necklaces, which has worked for me, but now I am starting to see more choker types and glammed up ones, and I am just confused, but I want to try it even if it is not really my style. My first necklace purchase was a long chained necklace with a locket and keys. although cute, I felt like I needed something more.
I got this other long chained necklace with these sort of arrows (pictured above) I definitely felt like it was a step up, but I still was feeling like it wasn’t what I was looking for. I guess I just had to keep digging and trying on what I was looking for, even though I was clueless.
My mom, who happens to love jewelry, let me try on one of her necklaces (pictured on the left) and I absolutely fell in love. It had a lot going on, I must admit. But I love the details and the fact that it wasn’t long. As weird as I might have thought, I felt like this is what I was kind of looking for.
Now I’m hooked, now all I want to do is buy accessories and try them on with everything. It’s really different for me because it’s a whole new world for me but I like it.
So cheers to my accessory obsession. I’m sure you’ll see more posts with accessories! If anyone has any tips or favorite accessories let me know.
