So this was never the most challenging challenge but it did prove to be a little bit more difficult than I thought it could be. I did try and do a bit of prep work and plan sets of necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and rings, but I didn’t think about having to pair everything with clothes and it’s amazing how long it can take to put jewellery on!
I have always been a massive fan of stacking rings, they lasted approx 20 mins on the first day. In my opinion, they look great for posing but are so impractical for any kind of hand movements. Not saying I won’t try them again, but maybe when I’m trying to be good looking in a bar. Wearing earrings every day for the first time in I don’t know how long was slightly painful but doable. I probably cheated my own challenge a little bit by sticking with pretty safe necklace options, I could have gone a lot bigger and crazier but honestly, I didn’t want to get laughed at at work. Bracelets for me are a bit of a pain, I find they just get in the way or get caught on things (I’m aware that probably makes me a little bit special). I’ll be sticking with watches though, they’re a nice little perk of the job.
Basically what I’ve taken from this week is I definitely prefer more delicate pieces that I can put on and forget about. I think it’s definitely time to get rid of the big bold statement things that I probably bought about 8 years ago because they were from Topshop and an absolute bargain. Is it really a bargain though if you never wear them?
I think I’m just going to have to get rid of the old tat and shop for some new more grown up pieces and try my absolute hardest to put more effort in try styling myself. Good luck to me!
