Bling Bling

I am one of those girls that are cautious when it comes to trends and participating in them. I seldom buy clothes that seem to be in style now, but could be gone off the radar quite soon again. I rather change my styling with accessories. When I read about Kristina's Bloggers do it Better challenge, I first did not want to participate as she mostly channeled all those current trends and I don't have anything in my closet to participate. Well, this month's "Arm Party" challenge came quite as a surprise and I so needed to participate in it. Going over the top with accessories, I am so there!! 


Well, at least I thought so. Bracelets and Watches happen to be the accessories I don't particularly like and only have a very small selection of. So here you see really all my gold and copper bracelets that I could find. Oh and one is even a necklace - turned bracelet, me sneaky! :)


Bloggers Do It Better


With all that jewelry, I went simple on the outfit, but I managed to add some amazing highlights. The cute jeans belt that I have bought one year ago and haven't worn once, and the little bass bag from H&M that I had my eyes on for months and now snug up for 1€!


What I wore

Skirt: Handmade for me
Top, Pearl Ring & Bag: H&M
Belt: Lindex
Black Ring: I am
Shoes: Thrifted
Bracelets: all Thrifted or Gifted
Necklace: Vintage; Thrifted

Love your arm party! ;) I am sometimes cautious about following trends as well, but sometimes it's fun to join in.

That clutch is super cute, and I love your skirt!  I have a thing for pearls too, but my favorite bracelet is the double chain one with the bezel set... onyx? black diamond? 

Anja_AHeartandSoulStory said...

So true, loved to be part of the BDIB as well!

Anja_AHeartandSoulStory said...

This trend is definitely worth participating :)

It's also one of my favorites. I am not sure, but I think it's onyx. It's vintage, so one can't be really sure.
