Last week I posted about buying my first Louis Vuitton handbag - take a look here, but it got me thinking about how my tastes have changed regarding jewellery and accessories as I have got older!
In my handbag post I said it had been a toss up between a designer handbag and a diamond necklace for my 50th birthday - I had decided on the diamond.
What I've noticed is that I now prefer simplicity. I want simple outfits with simple accessories. Classy, chic, stylish. A uniform of sorts. I am still working on perfecting the capsule wardrobe but I have a much clearer idea of what I like these days.
My jewellery drawer has had a good sort out and will be culled even more in the coming weeks as I sort out my wardrobe for the new season. I no longer want statement necklaces or beads, I want simple gold or silver jewellery that can be worn every day, that can be layered and that goes with everything.
I am currently loving my Nomination bracelets. I have two, one with charms and one just a simple style to co-ordinate and layer as a stack with my other bracelets which include some Tiffany beads and a Hot Diamonds chain with heart.
I have a silver Pandora ring, and of course my diamond engagement ring. I love my Olivia Burton watch and as they are such reasonable prices I am very tempted to get another one to add another colour option!
So that is me keeping it simple! Hope it gives you some ideas!
And don't forget this week I have an exclusive 15% discount at Sweat-Bea - an excellent online scarf and accessories shop - use the code FIFTYANDFAB15 at check out.
