“What would your jewelry collection look like, if you had to start all over?” The pieces I wear most often have the appearance of fine jewelry in timeless designs. A few years ago, I gave away all of my bold chunky necklaces and earrings because they felt dated and too much like part of a costume. So, I now avoid anything that includes colorful plastic elements or oversized tassels.
Since most of my clothing is relatively basic, accessories are essential when getting dressed each day. Shoes or a handbag can add color or texture, and jewelry adds a finishing touch that looks intentional and adds elegance. My nail color is Baby, Take a Vow by OPI here.
I wear these pieces countless times each summer. They are neutral but add the details necessary to complete my frequent white jeans and top combos.
My Nordgreen watch is comfortable even in the heat, and the small link bracelet adds a feminine touch. The small bracelet and bamboo-style hoops were gifts from Mr. Mickey long ago. The ring is a souvenir from one of our travels. The pearl bracelet is one of my all-time favorites! I bought it here. (Use the code SAS10 for $10 off any one item at Beauty in Stone Jewelry.)
The small straw clutch is here. The red sandals are from Dillard’s last year. They are comfortable even though they have a high block heel.
My blue eyes are very sensitive to bright light, so I never leave home without sunglasses. These are old from Nordstrom. Similar current ones are here.
You’ve seen that top and white jeans combo many times. I bought both from Talbots last year, but they have similar jeans here and a similar top here.
With a paternal family history of colorectal cancer, I have faithfully received colonoscopies for several years. Unfortunately, I’ve lost too many friends and family members to preventable cancers if the person had gotten regular checkups and paid attention to indicators. Read more about the reasons for getting a colonoscopy here.
We were on our way to enjoy a delightful lunch after my most recent screening when we snapped these photos. I visit my dermatologist and family doctor yearly for lab tests and a complete checkup including annual mammograms since I turned forty. I also see my optometrist annually and my dentist every six months. Of course, I wasn’t always so diligent, but after skin cancer and numerous precancerous polyps, I’ve made and kept my annual appointments. So please don’t wait until it is too late. Take care of your health!
