I have to admit that I am more of a planner than a spontaneous dresser. I usually know exactly what I am going to wear. I check the weather for about a week in advance and I get my inspirations form store display, magazine/Internet pictures and fashion bloggers. I sometimes spend couple of hours on weekends just to try things on and check if they work together. I have a pretty good idea what looks good on me but sometimes a mental picture in my mind does not quite translate to a great look irl. I know there are definitely more interesting and worthwhile ways to spend my time ,but I could do worse, I am sure.
Because of all this outfit planning, I don't spend too much time in the morning deciding what to wear. But I do spend some time choosing the right accessories. I have quite an extensive collection of costume jewelry (and some fine jewelry) and it is not unusual for me to try on 5-6 different necklaces until I settle on the right one to wear.

|these J.Crew boxes are great for stacking|
Here are a few ways I wear my necklaces.
|As a pop of color|
|I think this necklace makes the outfit|
|To tie the outfit together|
|To keep with the style|
|Making it more playful|
|Softening the black|
|Dressing up casual outfit|
Or use them as something a little unexpected
Or to counteract the effect of a high neck or turtleneck
Necklaces can really transform a plain top:
|Cool and laid back|
|Round necklace with polka dots|
|Picking up a hint of color|
And, of course, there is nothing like pearls to bring some light to your face:
|Against all the black|
|That's all folks!|
So now you know why I am always running to the train station...
