I’m not into rings as much as I used to be. When I do wear one, I usually wear it on my ring finger (duh!), index finger, or my middle finger. However, I haven’t worn a ring on my pinky since the 90s when gold rings on a every finger was the ultimate status symbol in school. Therefore, I haven’t worn a pinky ring in almost 20 years, but that might change soon.
I’m noticing that pinky rings are starting to become “a thing” again and I’ve been tempted to embrace it. The first image that may pop in your mind is a big, gold gaudy piece of jewelry that your favorite rapper wears on their pinky. Thankfully, the current wave of pinky rings are more on the small and dainty side, which I’m all about.
Actually, all those midi rings you bought a couple of years can be worn as a pinky ring. If you can’t find your midi ring stash, here are some perfect pinky rings to get into.
Every year, I try to find new ways to challenge myself in various areas of my life. Last year, I challenged myself to go vegan for a while and I also worked on diligence. In the end, I’ve learned more about healthy eating and I’m getting better at committing. Small steps.
Well, for 2017, I decided to have a little fun with my challenges for this year and challenge my style. Over the past couple of years, my style and has gone from casual chic to colorless comfort. I used to crave shopping for cute tops and structured bottoms, but then I started bulking buying leggings and grey tees. Sounds horribly boring, right? Well, it has gotten worst over the past couple of months.
The only clothing I’ve bought over the past couple of months are sweats and I’m not talking about those thin, colorful ones that are practically form-fitting for women. No, I’m talking about those baggy Hanes sweats that you can find in a box in the men’s section of Wal-Mart. Well, I found mine at Wal-Mart, but I’m sure you can find them at other places. Also, my color choices? Black and 2 shades of grey (light and dark). Boring.
Now, I’m not going to sit here and act like I haven’t worn at least one of those items every week. I practically live in them, because I can’t deny all that comfort. However, I’m starting to annoyed with my style and want brush it up. So, I’ve come up with three things that I plan to do in 2017 to add some more style to my life and wardrobe.
At church yesterday, I saw the cutest little girl wearing the cutest little red stockings. Her semi-sheer red stockings had little red bows embroidered all over. They were almost too cute to bare! They reminded me of similar pairs of tights my mom bought me when I was a little girl. One pair that I remember were navy tights with medium red balls all over. I can still remember all the the compliments my mom and I would receive when I wore them. Maybe, that’s why I’ve always loved patterned tights and stockings.
Luckily, patterned tights aren’t limited to just little girls, because there are plenty of patterned tight options for grown-ups, too. A pair of tights with patterns or prints will look great for any upcoming holiday parties. You might need to look a little harder for red ones with little bows all over, but I have found some that are fun and sophisticated.
For the past few weeks (maybe months), I’ve been obsessing over velvet booties. Velvet is such a winter fabric, but I’ve always been a little indifferent about wearing velvet shoes. Wet velvet can’t be a good idea, right? Yet, despite my logic, velvet ankle boots have been popping up everywhere. So much so, that I’ve developed an obsession. You can get a pair of these ‘it’ shoes in various colors and prints, if that’s your thing.
So, please join on the plight of finding a pair of cute velvet booties.
Since it has been cold, I’ve been living in oversize graphic sweatshirts. The comfier, the better. At this point, I have so many that I 3 I could wear for each day of the week. On chilly day, I opted for a oversized sweatshirt instead of a hoodie. For me, hoodies seem a little too casual. Whereas, with the right sweatshirt, you can style to fit any vibe you want.
Although I have more than enough graphic sweatshirts, I might be able to squeeze in a few more. Here are the current ones that I’m crushing on. 🙂
