Today is theoretically the middle of summer. I say theoretically because with the wind chill factor it is around 4 degrees at the moment and snow has been predicted in the high country. Only a few days ago I had bare arms and strappy shoes, today I've dug out a scarf and stockings. It really is proving to be a strange summer.
But the change in weather which saw me reach into a different part of my wardrobe, also inspired me to have a better look in my jewellery box.
I don't know about you, but I tend the wear the same accessories a lot. It is easy, I don't have to think, I just grab the same few things and go with them. However today, I wanted to wear something different, not just go with a full on winter outfit - after all even if the temperature doesn't agree, it is summer!
I ended up choosing a necklace and earrings that used to belong to my mother to go with my long sleeved dress. They aren't a set, but the colours and the design work really well together and with my scarf from Peru. It isn't expensive jewellery but wearing something my Mum used to wear always makes me feel a bit special. It also reminded me that I'm lucky enough to have a heap of accessories and that I really should wear them all more often!
Are you the same? Do you get stuck in a clothing/accessory rut? And how do you like to mix it up?
