With my wardrobe, that is. But not bored enough to go on a shopping spree yet. OK, I confess: I tried going shopping. I really need some new trousers, or jeans. So, I thought I’d just bite the bullet, hit the shops and get it over with…
And after trying to squeeze into half a dozen pairs of jeans I gave up. The same old story: if my thighs fit, the waistline is way too wide. I’ll try again later. Maybe.
But in the meantime, I’ll try something else to liven up my ‘look’ (a.k.a the current ‘style rut’): layering.
Of course, you know I don’t do layering, as far as clothes are concerned. I’m talking about necklaces.
I know it’s not exactly a new concept, but I seldom wear even one necklace, let alone two. For a self-proclaimed minimalist, this is revolutionary. OK, maybe I’m exaggerating a bit. It’s just that I haven’t really worn any jewellery for quite a while.
But, this is about to change. I think it makes no sense to have nice things if I never wear them, so I’m going to make a conscious effort to wear more jewellery. Maybe even match my jewellery to my outfits. Or create an outfit around a piece of jewellery. Well, we’ll see.
Anyway… Whether I prefer silver-tone or gold-tone jewellery depends on the season, my outfit, or my mood. I tend to wear more gold in summer and silver in winter, but it’s not an absolute rule. And I also mix my metals.
However, my options are somewhat limited because I have nickel allergy. I know that most costume jewellery sold within the EU should be nickel-free, but I’m not taking any chances. So, most of my necklaces (or any piece of jewellery that touches the skin) are either gold, white gold or silver. And when it comes to costume jewellery, I prefer other materials, such as leather, glass, wood or even plastic over metal.
And here I’m layering two silver necklaces. Or, rather, a silver necklace and a silver-framed magnifying glass on a chain. A functional piece of jewellery, the perfect union of form and function, that’s what I like.
