This week I pretended to be a 'put together' woman by making an effort to match my accessories in order to pull together my look rather than be the shambles that I normally am.
I found it surprisingly easy and that it gave me confidence. I walked head high as if to say, 'look, I do pay attention to the little details. I am that woman.'
It all started with a scarf and bracelet that had similar teal and peach colourings, which I confess was a semi accidental use of accessories. I say semi as I didn't go looking for matching accessories at this point ('you didn't,' you say. I do hear your horrified voices. OK, OK, I know that you are well put together ladies and that accessorizing is second nature to you but I am not.) In fact I wasn't looking for a bracelet at all, because I don't often bracelet. ('you don't!' you utter). It was more that I came across the bracelet then realised that I could wear it with my teal outfit and I would need a scarf as it was chilly.
That led me down the path of trying to do what you elegant readers do so naturally. The next day I matched my nails to my scarf. I was on a roll now. Look I have a bracelet on too.
I had to follow up the next day, due to the roll, with a scarf and bracelet match again.
I found it surprisingly easy once I put my mind to it. I planned my
scarf as usual around my outfit, well you do don't you, then just rummaged for the bracelet that would match. As I said I am not one for bracelets. By that I mean that I love them but do not make the effort generally. This week I made the effort.
I am going to continue to try to keep this up.
The challenge this week is to match accessories. Let me know how you do, please. I love your feed back.
