Not Overdoing It - Really! - Day 14

So, I think this may be my favorite outfit yet. It’s bright and fun, yet (I think) sophisticated. As I’ve said before, I LOVE this pink shirt, and I think these yellow wedges are my favorite shoes of all time. 

I really like the bangles on top of a watch idea. I’ve been seeing it for a while, but after seeing it here on Kendi Everyday’s blog, I had to try it. This blog post also kind of made me desperate for a large gold watch, especially when I looked on other posts and saw all the other bloggers rocking it (I know - I'm a slave to trends. Shoot me). I’ve always kind of liked big watches – something about how giant they are makes my wrists feel tiny (which makes ME feel tiny, even if I'm having a fat day) – and it looks so pretty with all the bracelets! I wanted Kendi's watch from Fossil (the rose gold is soooo pretty), but didn't really want to spend $100 on a watch that I wanted because it was trendy, not because I needed it, even though hers is awesome. I also "needed" more gold bangles (what? I only had like, three!). So, I shopped around...and found this watch at Charming Charlie's for $15! My friend Lauren took out a couple of the links (it was really big on me), and BOOM! I had my giant gold watch and a bunch of gold bangles to wear with it.

My friend Natalie was kind of my inspiration for bangles on BOTH arms – I know, sensory overload! She does that kind of thing a lot, and despite being a one-armfull-of-bangles-at-a-time kind of girl, I thought I’d try the look and LOVED it. I rock it all the time now.

I also like that I have tons of accessories here (necklace, bracelets on BOTH arms, giant watch, bright belt), but don’t look overdone (or at least, I don’t think so). I usually wear a watch and earrings OR a bracelet and a necklace. Sometimes I’ll wear a necklace and bracelets or bracelets and earrings, but rarely more than that – even in this post, I’m not wearing earrings. I’m usually worried about overdoing it, but I think I managed to strike just the right note with this. Hope YOU guys like it.
