days weeks you just need to keep it simple and serene. For me that’s often meant black-on-black-on-black, but I’ve been working on incorporating some lighter and softer neutrals into the mix. With simple outfits like this, accessories are key to achieving a pulled-together look. Here I’ve let the necklaces take the spotlight.
The black medallion necklace (c/o French Kande) from last fall’s collection has become one of my favorites. The one with the silver medallion (also c/o French Kande) is from the new Spring/Summer collection. I’m crazy about those “sea mist” jade beads and it’s nice to add some silver to my collection. It also pops nicely against a darker top, which I’ll show in a future outfit post. Don’t be afraid to mix your metals; it’s the modern way to wear jewelry.
The boots and bag are both travel souvenirs. I purchased the boots in London in 2013, and the bag in Paris last year. The silver bangle was a Christmas gift from a former boss, probably about 20 years ago. I recently re-discovered it in a jewelry box, polished it up, and have been wearing often since. Many solid bangles are too big for my hands/wrists and tend to fall off. This one with an oval shape is one of the few that fits me well.
What accessories do you rely on most to pull together your outfits? Do you purchase accessories or clothing as souvenirs when you travel?
If you sometimes find accessorizing a challenge, or just want to up your accessories game and find inspiration, Sylvia of 40+ Style is launching a new online course, Accessorize Me Confident and Beautiful. I’ll be taking this course too, and look forward to sharing some ideas and impressions.
