I’ve been wearing a lot of black lately. And I won’t lie and say it’s not because of my mood. It might very well be. For a while I was wearing very bright colors, and feeling…OK. But I have to admit that getting near the end of my third month of unemployment, and Nathan’s second…is discouraging. I am starting to lose my confidence.
But I digress.
This is what I wore to church Sunday. I’m not sure how many of you attend church, but the dress code has changed. When I was a child, it was “Sunday Best”, but now, really anything goes. And I’m OK with that. I’m OK with you wearing jeans and a tee shirt. But I really like getting dressed up, and for now, I’m sticking with the old dress code. I might change my tune again when I get back to a nine to five groove. Trust me.
Saturday I woke up from an afternoon nap aware that later we were going to go out and meet up with friends. And I was having one of those days where I just wanted to wear an American Apparel deep v and some jeans. I did not want to get dressed up. And I thought how can I get away with that? My Bona Drag jacket and some sort of chunky necklace? But I didn’t really HAVE a chunky necklace. So I went though the drawer I keep full of old jewelry I don’t really wear anymore and found a couple of Target base metal necklaces and went to work. It took a couple hours, but I deconstructed the necklaces and made myself a chunky multi chain necklace.
My favorite part is the little tassel I added down the back…
I felt like it was a really nice touch.
