Hey! A bit of a different post from me today, I thought I would just show you a few of my favourite pieces of jewellery that I often go to to add that finishing touch to my outfits. This won't be for everyone, I've always loved statement jewellery but I know a lot of people firmly believe less is more!
In general, I never spend very much on necklaces, rings etc., because places like Primark and River Island have such lovely pieces that there really is no need to. The colourful statement necklace in the first photo for example, is from Ebay and it cost £2.99 including shipping from China! It's one of the best things I've come across on Ebay ever, and I've had a fair few compliments on it too. The necklace after that one was from Primark, I've had it for a few months now and worn it a lot, but it still looks pretty good as new so that was another great find! These kind of necklaces work best if you are wearing a simple, plain top so the focus isn't drawn away and also so it doesn't look too OTT. Remember Pat Butcher from Eastenders (UK soap)? We don't want that look. I went through a phase when I was younger of wearing ALL my accessories at once - throw in my favourite leopard print clothes and the results are some pretty cringe photos to look back at!
Bracelets are a little different; they are easy to layer up and are more subtle than necklaces and rings. I hate my bony wrists (literally the only part of me that is bony, sob), so I never go anywhere without having a bracelet on each one. I have a Tiffany bracelet on my right wrist, which was a present from my boyfriend that I never take off, so it's generally on my left wrist where I wear all sorts of different ones. I love gold these days so I often go for that when buying new pieces. My watch is from Sekonda and is just the right design for me; I love Michael Kors (the bloggers' favourite) but the watches are just too chunky and would look ridiculous on my small wrists. I guess the lesson here is to buy for yourself, not because of what everyone else seems to have!
I really really love rings too, but again I have thin fingers (why can't that read 'legs'?!) so sometimes even a size S in high street shops is too big on them. Primark is usually a good fit though, so many bargain rings can be picked up there. My favourite ring is another gift from my boyfriend, but I have to wear it on my index finger because even after it was adjusted it was still a little big. It annoys me that I have to wear it there as rings look better in the middle of your hand I think, but never mind!
This has turned into a bit of a rambling post, sorry! But well done & thank you if you made it to the end :).
Do you love to wear accessories or do you prefer not to? xx
