is less always more?

I. Love. Jewelry.
One of my favorite things to do in the morning is pick out the baubles and jewels I'll be wearing for the day. I tend to load my fingers and arms full of beauties but by the time I walk out the door I'm only wearing one or two pieces. I'm in a constant struggle on how many is too many? Is less always more?
Interested in hearing your thoughts!






So which are you? One and done or the more the merrier?

More the merrier. But there's always that nagging "take one piece off before leaving the house" voice.

i love the look of more but when i'm actually sporting more i can't stand the clutter. i think my problem is with comfort. its so uncomfortable wearing tons of heavy bangle or earrings. but again, like i said, i love the look!

I love the look of all the bangles... I wear a lot of them. I however don't do all the rings... for some reason I don't think rings look good on me.

One and done

I love the look of tons of mixed bangles but I don't own enough to do it!

It always revolves around the outfit and the mood. Simple outfit but feeling spunky, I load it up. Feeling a little more feminine, minimal jewelry. I love it all!

I like the first few pictures with the loaded bangles and statement earrings. The rest is a little too much.

I wear two pieces of jewelry all the time -- never take them off -- my Claddagh ring and my Cape Cod bracelet.

When I go out, I add my watch and a necklace... sometimes another bracelet if I'm getting dressed up.

i used to always wear less, but i've started piling them on sometimes...it's so fun!!

I really would love to try wearing stylish jewelry as opposed to my day to day jewelry, but I just bring myself to take all the staple pieces off.

As for your former post, congrats on your upcoming marriage! I just got married last month, you'll have a black!

i love jewelry! it is one of my favorite things! and if an outfit isn't properly accessorized, it pretty much falls flat!

i wear a fair amount of jewelry, but i don't think i over-do it. and if i do, OH WELL! :)

I rarely wear jewelry. But I love, love, love the look of a ton of beautiful pieces on others. You've always had the best jewels :) Especially now the one you've added to your left ring finger!!!

And I left you a little bloggie award... because you're awesome, duh :)

the more the merrier! I love lots and lots of bracelets. I cant wear them at work bc they bang on my desk when I type but on the weekends you can find them stacked up my arm. but I do tend to keep in simple when it comes to rings and earrings and neckalces so I hope it balances out!

i don't know! this is my struggle these days. it depends on my mood, maybe? i guess i'm tending to head toward a more simplistic/uncluttered look. but, really, i love accessories! they're awesome.
