Martha's A-Z Photo Challenge: "J" Is For Jewelry

"Jewelry takes peoples mind's off your wrinkles."

-Sonja Henie

A couple weeks ago, I showed you a new outfit I purchased recently at Old Navy. It was a pretty good example of my personal style in clothing. Well, what I didn't include in that entry was an example of the accessories I wear with my outfits. I am a pretty simple gal in terms of style. I like classic lines, and earth tones. I don't look good in pastels, but I love pink and mauve. I try to keep those colors to the spring months, but every once in a while you will see me wearing pink in autumn! GASP! And as for white after Labor Day, GET OVER IT! I wear what I want, when I want. That's just me.

When it comes to accessories, cameos, pearls and pearl beads are an everyday thing with me. I love ankle bracelets, even at my age, and I like bangles as well. I like fabric, and chain belts when they are needed, and nothing, nothing can beat a good Hobo bag. Although in the evening I prefer to travel a bit lightly with a clutch purse. A good piece of jewelry works wonders to an outfit, if it doesn't distract too much from the clothes. Clunky jewelry is fun, but not always appropriate. Like I said, I have a simple style, but it works for me! :)

I like your style :-)
I have very simple taste too. Black is a favorite of mine, I wear it year round and don't care who likes it and who don't.
I love your dragonfly!

Well there's finally a way we're different! lol
I bet you look awesome in that jewelry...and the photo sure is nice...but I have a different jewelry style. Love your independence!
As for Elvis...that's odd. Wonder if there is something that spooked him recently in the dark and he's "protecting you".
