As you probably know (because I repeat myself a lot), I am trying to work with fewer pieces in my closet, and change them up with accessories. It’s been a fun turn-around from a year or so of thrift accumulations. And I do enjoy looking at a smaller wardrobe every morning. It’s true! A smaller closet makes dressing easier.
So here I am, enjoying some old favorites and trying to raise the style level with accessories. The Laundry pencil skirt’s been around for years, ditto the black tee. I added a couple of bangles and a colorful silk scarf.
Scarves still intimidate me. I know! I’m 57 and I’ve conquered a lot of fears. But these slippery rectangles get me all anxious. So I reviewed some of my how-to videos (like this, this, and of course, several from Une Femme), and decided on a simple necklace design. I like it. Not high fashion, not even very French, but a good change for me.

How do you use those scary silky things to pump up a simple outfit?
