Accessories, oh sweet, glorious accessories!
In all honesty for the majority of my life I've never really been all that big on the whole accessories vibe; often opting for simplicity and letting my clothes do the talking, well that was until now.
This summer has seen me completely and utterly succumb to the power of the accessory, I am well and truly on the accessory band wagon and I am loving the update it is giving some of my much loved looks and clothing pieces.
I've discussed in this video here, my love for the accessory and in particular my top five accessories for this summer, something I plan to do seasonly from now on as I have a funny feeling this love will be here to stay, once you accessorise you never go back, or something like that.
You've already seen my love for a statement pair of sunglasses or a socks and sandal affair blossom since I started my blog three and a half years ago now but the latest accessory hype comes in the form of neckwear, in-particular the bolo tie.
Bolo ties are simply a type of necktie consisting of a piece of cord or braided leather with decorative metal tips, commonly associated with Western wear. They're the latest accessory to take the fashion world by storm and are rather surprisingly easy to incorporate into a look.
Whether it's simple T-shirts that need that added bit of sass, collared dresses and shirts or simply a strapless of low cut top that needs that little bit of interest on the ole chest area, bolo ties really do work with everything to give it that much needed styling touch.
The one I'm wearing here today is by Rock n Rose, aka the mother of all trend-based jewellery haunts. Rock n Rose are my go-to's when I need something extra special and extra funky to sass up my looks, they're always totally on point and totally on the ball when it comes to the must have piece of jewellery for the season and I would highly reccomend you add them to your browsers favourites as you never know when you could need them.
I'll be sharing another look very soon where the Bolo Tie and Rock n Rose come to my rescue once again, so do stay tuned for that.
