What I Wore: The Elderly Edition


I seriously vacillated over whether or not to post these photos because I'm quite sure that the interwebs aren't chomping at the bit to see how a practically perimenopausal woman such as myself might style a hip statement necklace, but since it is such a lovely piece, and since Clare of Between Laundry Days was so generous to offer it in her budding shop's maiden giveaway (for which I was the lucky winner!), I decided--as must be quite obvious--to post them anyway.

Enjoy, and please note the hilariously aged camera that I use. In case you're wondering, it's digital. Barely.

What I Wore posts are the best. I love to see people turn their creativity on themselves!

Nothing shameful about F21. I love having a place where I can buy fun, trendy stuff and not feel guilty when I rip it a few weeks later.
