I felt physical discomfort typing that number. It’s pretty surreal to me.
I’m supposed to be in Mexico right now working on my tan, even though I’m never anything but appliance white.
Drink in my hand without a worry in the world, this last part never happens.
But thanks to a global pandemic, I’m sitting at home doing…..nothing.
Instead of feeling sorry for myself, I’ve decided to try to infuse little bits of fun into my everyday life this month. Wanna join me? I have declared that “Fun” is my word of the month for January, so here we go!
As I frequently say and believe wholeheartedly, your clothes affect your mood. So each day I’m choosing to add a fun element to my outfit. Sparkly earrings, mix items that I normally wouldn’t, or wear something that feels a tad out of my comfort zone. It’s easier to do this when you are staying home, but it’s good practice and a safe way to form new wardrobe habits.
For example, I purchased a vegan leather high waisted skirt. When this was a trend 20 years ago it was called pleather for plastic leather, which is exactly what it was. Totally unbreathable, skin tight plastic. We’ve gone PC and now it’s vegan leather, giving the skirt it’s proper dues I guess?? I wore it with a vintage t-shirt, booties, and a multi-strand faux pearl necklace. Adding the unexpected element of pearls took this outfit into the fun zone.
There are a number of ways to make your look fun, but for today we are focusing on how you can use jewelry to add zest to your outfit. I pulled some examples for you to get the ideas flowing. Additional details can be found by clicking the photos.
Now, use these as examples of how each day you can have some fun with your outfit by adding in the right jewelry. Even if you’re just sitting at home, even if it’s just sweats you’re wearing. I promise you are building new habits so that when you do leave your house, you will add in that fun last item that takes your outfit over the top. Start with the items that you reserve for special occasions, it’s probably a gold mine of fun pieces. Now is a special occasion (I just called it), wear them today.
Let me know how you are incorporating fun jewels into your wardrobe. I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
