The book I read this February, How to be Parisian, made me feel better about some of my habits. For instance, according to the book, one “parisian” thing to do is cut your own hair. I’ve been doing this for years but have never really shouted it from the rooftops. Mainly because the people I have told have been somewhat horrified that I take kitchen scissors to my own hair like a 5 year old child who inadvertently cuts off an eyebrow. (which I actually did in kindergarten and my mom had to use an eyebrow pencil on me for a week or two – oops!)
It also made me feel better about not being a jewelry person. The jewelry I’m most attracted to is the same price as bigger items and I usually opt for those. The book talks about having only jewelry that means something – regardless of whether it was a $5 ring picked up at a flea market on a trip or a $500 dollar watch for an anniversary. I love the idea of all the pieces of jewelry in my collection having a story and a reason for being in my jewelry tray.
So I guess I should come up with some kind of special occasion for those top neutral earrings – because they make my heart flutter. They seem so lady-like and neutral, still dangly but not too big, and even incorporate a tassel – a subtle nod to this seasons fringe trend.
Have a wonderful Wednesday and thank you so much for reading.
