Only a few months ago, I created a vision for my work wardrobe that included great essentials like well-fitting tees, chinos, and quality sandals. As the weather starts to cool down, I’ve obviously had to re-think my basic work wardrobe. This season, I’ve focused on adding interest to basics with beautiful, dramatic accessories like silk scarves, cuffs, and cameo jewelry. Some basics for fall (and pieces that are well worth the initial investment!) are leather boots, jeans, and a blazer. When it comes to the accessories, I usually shop vintage and thrift to find unique pieces that have better quality than trendy accessories I could find at H&M or Zara.
I started collecting cameo jewelry about three or four years ago, just simply because I think the pieces are beautiful and intriguing. I’ve focused on collecting costume jewelry cameos (for the moment!) as they are less expensive and easy to discover in a wide variety. Oddly, I rarely wear the cameo pieces, so I’m going to have to come up with a creative way to display this collection so that I finally do it justice! Here are some of my favorites:
