Last week I made an attempt to accessorize my outfits for 6 days.
I know I was supposed to have all this wonderful info about how great the rest of my accessorizing week went but truthfully that’s not what this post is about.
This is how I successfully failed to finish my week of accessorizing.
It’s wasn’t actually a terrible day. I managed to add some gold accessories to my outfit. A really cute anklet from Forever 21, it was a simple one strand with a fishtail chain pattern. A simple gold chain necklace and my rose gold glasses (although I opted not to wear the glasses when I got to work). I really though I was finally getting into the groove of accessorizing. I felt great and was so excited for the next day.
My optimism was great on Wednesday, my cold was greater on Thursday. I woke up with a crazy cold I could barely get myself out of bed and the idea of even picking an outfit was tiring and put me in the midst of a toddler’s temper tantrum. I slapped some tights on and put a bit on concealer under my eyes and off to work I went. Sick and sleepy I slowly walked to the end of the driveway and hopped into an Uber (there was no way I was gonna walk today).
I completely gave up on my accessorizing by this point. I was sick and all I could imagine doing was sleeping. I was home by 6:15 and in bed by 7:30/8:00. Waking up was something my brain was wired to do and getting dressed was such a mindless activity that by the time I got to work on Friday I didn’t even realize I had picked out clothes. On Saturday I went to my friends house, we hung out and gossiped and laughed, Got some killer ice cream and ate some delicious salmon. I went home and curled up completely content with the fact failed my week of accessorizing. I didn’t want to do this by force, I truthfully wanted to try to add some life in my minimal outfits with some accessories but even though I didn’t make it. I really enjoyed the attempt.
