My new favorite

I bought these pearls for my daughter's wedding.  I've been wearing them like crazy.  With everything including oxford shirts.  I believe in mixing styles.  I believe in wearing whatever I want.  I don't give a hoot what anyone else says is in or hip or stylish.  That is the beauty of being in the second half of my life.  If I want to wear it, I do. 
The reason I would never get a tattoo is that I will have a favorite pair of earrings or a necklace or a bracelet and I will wear it, wear it, wear it.  Then, one day I'll come across whatever and say "I remember when this was my favorite."  My favorite seems to change from time to time. 
For now, it is the strand of big pearls.  Of course, Doug has to call me Barbara Bush when I wear them.  She always wore multiple strands, which I thought was pretty.  I'll have multiple strands when I find the right ones.  That is something I've been on the lookout for- for a long time. 
What is your favorite piece of jewelry?

I LIKE your pearls. I used to wear a string a lot, but haven't had them out in years. Funny how we do that - - -

I'm right with ya' on wearing what i want to please myself in this half of my life. I please myself these days because if not now...then when? Fifty is very freeing for smart gals who realize that it's time to look inward and make ourselves happy. If not us, then who? We have to stop waiting for others to complete us, or make us whole, or blah, blah, one is in charge of thee than me has become my new mantra..and about damn time too! I love little earrings by the way.
