So I’m feeling that this series of photos could be used for an Irish tourism brochure. Just had to put that out there. Moving onward… I am going to make a statement, dear readers, that might seem a little shocking coming from me. *deep breath* Sometimes, you don’t need accessories. Holy crap, I said it. I never thought that I would say something of the sort, considering there’s more than one person out there that calls me the queen of accessories. But I put together this outfit the way I usually put my outfits together (laid it out on my bed piece by piece, then popped it on and did some jujshing) and then a strange thing happened.
I have a bit of a Coco Chanel mentality when it comes to accessorizing my outfits, and what I like to do is grab any possibility for bling and play around with different combinations until I come up with one that I like. But this eerily strange thing that happened was that I kept on playing and nothing worked. I kept on taking everything off. Except for my studs, which are usually foolproof and never go anywhere. Everything I put on seemed unsuitable, or fussy, or just didn’t go. So I took everything off (except the studs) and left it. And stranger still, I’m kind of ok with it! The sparkly studs on the sweater, the stylized preppy collar that created textural interest with contrasting fabrics, the pockets and gold zip detailing on the pants… yes I went to fashion school. But it was enough!
What do you think, lovely readers? I vote that it’s worth a shot! Based on my research, I can conclude that having a lot going on with your outfit clothes-wise means that it’s quite alright to give the blings and things the night off. Except the studs.
