I love earrings. I have over 200 pairs! I am trying to get rid of some though that I don’t really wear. Lately I’ve been really into wearing studs. Simple, easy, no tangle in the hair effect. I have so many cute ones and cannot go past unicorns, pandas, cherries, stars, cats etc.
I think I may have a stud addiction. Which sounds kind of kinky so I’ll own it.
It’s hard not to be bias now with my jewellery, but my gorgeous ruby and diamond engagement ring has jumped to the top of the list of most favourite accessory.
It still doesn’t seem real, having a ring on that finger. I often fidget and feel the ring unknowingly, its amazing how perfectly it fits on my hand and I don’t even realise it is there.
The pressure of picking and choosing THE ring is enormous and for the best part of 35 years I’ve hypothesised about ‘what my engagement ring will look like’. Fate would take that decision out of my hands as The Artist would be (one day… he implied) giving me a family heirloom, his grandmother’s ring. Eek! A family heirloom – so romantic!
But what if I don’t like it? What if its not ‘me’? Such pressure.
So I breathed a deep sigh of relief when he opened the box (on one knee of course, on the beach under the moonlight) and I saw the most beautiful and delicate ring. Red! So me. It really couldn’t be any more perfect. I guess it was meant to be!
(I’ll apologise for being so gushy now)
I got this scarf on special at Cotton On last winter as part of a 3 for $10 deal. Bargain! The 3 scarves I bought for $10 are among my favourites, and I have a lot of scarves!
It’s super long, you can wrap it around 4 times. Very snug, and great colour combo, goes with everything!
The classic black ring goes with everything you wear and can be dressed up and down. I often reach for black accessories, and rings work well whereas sometimes black earrings get lost in your hair.
Here are some of my favourites
The curvy girls daily saving grace. The other night I was going to a Salt n Pepa concert (so old school I know) and wore some trusty flats, perfect for dancing all night after a full day at work.
My fellow dancing buddy came out holding three pairs of heels asking which one. I was all like ‘how can you do heels?’ to which she replied ‘I know, what was I thinking, I’ll get some flats’.
Needless to say we comfortably shimmied it all night….
Salt n Pepa would be so proud!
I have a lot of scarves. Way to many. This one has been on rotation lately. A simple knitted turquoise number with sequins and velvet woven through. What’s not to love?
I bought it in Dingle, Ireland in 2007. It was about 30 euros, which really is expensive for a scarf, but I think it was worth it as I love it so much. Well I do get carried away while shopping when travelling.
It just needs to be a bit longer. You know those scarves that are too long for one loop round your neck, but too short for two? Annoying (first world problems…I know)! Especially those snood things, infinity scarf things, I have one that just won’t go around twice without choking me. But one loop looks like a bib.
And speaking of first world problems, what’s the solution with trying to wear a scarf and a necklace together? My necklaces seem to hibernate in winter as scarves get prime neck real estate…
Is it poor neck etiquette to wear both?
Clearly these are the sorts of questions that keep me up all night.
