Accessorize, much?

Oh, hi Mary Kate. Quick question… How do you manage to walk upright and not spill your coffee while carrying three times your body weight in accessories?

Okay. I am a jewelry and accessory maniac, but 10+ all at once? Ouch, my eyes.

It’s always been my personal preference to look effortlessly stylish and less gypsy-esque. Over the years, I’ve been acquainted with many ‘rules of thumb’ when it comes to accessorizing. As silly as some of these sound, they really do work!

  • I once heard a woman say that before you leave your house, stand in front of a mirror and do a little twirl. Whatever catches your eye in the mirror as your spinning (I warned you, didn’t I?) is making too much of a statement and you should take it off.
  • No matter where you’re headed, as you’re walking out the door remove one unnecessary item.
  • Accessories should never exceed the amount of seven. This includes glasses, bold nail polish, a wedding ring, and earrings count as two.

So there you have it. Simple, silly, and obvious tips to avoid looking like a gypsy. But hey, if head scarves and tambourines are your thing, by all means, work it.

  1. She looks so homeless and starving. Is that the in thing? ;)
    I know I need to accessorize more – I usually have 2-3 TOPS, if that. I just always lose my dang earrings!

  2. That would be the great Coco Chanel who gave that wise advice about taking off one accessory, but I’ve never heard of the law of sevens though. Makes sense! I like it

  3. Morgan I’m a friend of a friend I guess. One day Talia, your friend Steph’s cousin, did a post about new blogs worth checking out and mentioned yours… so I did. I’ve enjoyed your posts. Keep it going. :)

  4. what great tips! I’m trying to be better about actually accessorizing when I go places. I almost always wear earrings, and I just love scarves, but I hardly ever think to do necklaces, rings, or bracelets. Now I know what NOT to do! :)
