Sometimes the best accessories aren't the ones you wear. They are the company you keep.
I wasn't feeling particularly stylish that day- j'eggings, and a T-shirt that started out cute, but due to the fact it's made out of a cheap poly fabric, is quickly losing its shape and luster at every wash. My loafers, a brand new white leather vintage score from my neighborhood Goodwill were small comfort, as I think they make me look a bit uh, pedestrian, which is fine in real life but will it ever make the front page of Chictopia? Uh. NO.
I felt neither stylish or attractive. My middle-age body seems to gain more belly and hips every time I hit a juice bar, which I have been doing a bit too much lately, truth be told. I might have to actually (gasp) come up with some sort of fitness plan. For the first time ever. At age 47. Cuz these j'eggings aren't going to slim themselves. Yeah, waa-waa, first world problems.
What did perk up my day, aside from my amaze-ballz statement necklace (a 1980's hand-made necklace in the art style ala Memphis) was the sweet little companion who could rival the best top model, and can NOT take a bad picture. I swear, the little creature POSES for the camera, and he does so much better than I do. This little puggle is a sweetheart, and he reminded me that life isn't about the fancy pair of shoes that you fancy, but about where you're going in those fancy shoes. Maybe that's not quite it- it's more like this: sometimes the best accessories aren't the ones you wear. They are the company you keep.
Wishing you all a bright and cheerful Monday!
