Even though I’m a member of the Sweet Yara team, I can relate. I hardly ever wear jewelry on a regular basis. The truth is that the jewelry I wear everyday is limited to a single piece: a ring that carries sentimental value.
However, I do sometimes find myself wishing that I wore more accessories, particularly jewelry. I love the way that a necklace can totally change the tone of an outfit, and I think that stacking rings creates a beautiful effect. I see girls who wear matching necklaces and bracelets or earrings every day, and find myself in awe of them. In all honesty though, I am too lazy and too prone to overthinking to emulate those looks.
On a good day, I roll out of bed 30 minutes before I have to leave the house. This means I have just enough time to get dressed, throw on some eyeliner, and maybe grab a bagel before rushing downstairs to catch my bus. The result is that my makeup is minimal and, of course, I don’t wear jewelry.
I may not wear jewelry on a regular basis, but that just makes it all the more special to me when I do. In addition, I only keep a small collection of curated pieces that I know and love. They’re pieces that I know exactly how to wear with my nicer outfits, and they’re reflective of my more minimalist style. But most importantly, they make me feel beautiful.
Why wear a ring if it’s going to make you feel uncomfortable? Or a necklace that makes you feel self-conscious? It doesn’t matter what everyone else is doing, or what you in an ideal world would do; what matters is what will make you feel beautiful here and now. Find jewelry that you love putting on, whether that’s on a regular basis or once every couple of months. Find pieces that make you feel beautiful. Find your system. Because what you wear, you should wear for you. Not anyone else.
