Bedecked with Bangles

Having packed up more than 1/2 of my wardrobe for an upcoming move, I am having to get a bit more resourceful with the items left on my closet dowel & in my drawers.  Internal monologue:  "oh perfect, i'll wear that black leather pleated mini with a white tank, knotted denim shirt, & my... crap, did i pack up the black leather mini? why would i pack up the black leather mini when minis are perfect for summer?  because it was black?  what, is idaho exempt from wearing black year round?  seriously, what if you had a spur the moment new york trip?  why would you pack up the black leather mini?  #@!&... nincompoop!... ok, plan b."   Accessories always seem to rescue me from my dire inner voice just in the knick knack of time.  They seem to be the pop of color on a basic canvas, which appears to be all that I left for myself to wear this summer.  I'm finding in my desperate "the-item-I-wanted-to-wear-is-packed...#@&!" moments that the more bangles I pile on, the merrier I feel.  Here's a glimpse of my mid-move make-out session with bangles.  I like to call them my knights in shining armor... aren't they hot?!

L to R:  Jcrew, Jcrew, Forever 21, Anthropologie, Forever 21, Forever 21

Grab a bangle or 2 or 22 & call yourself jingle, jangle, bangled, & armed for accessory laden summer livin'!
