Are you a low maintenance or a high maintenance type girl? We all know the high maintenance kind; the one’s who have to have the latest fashions, the latest hairstyle, the latest makeup. Do you have to have a manicure and pedicure regularly, does the thought of roughing it send shivers down your spine? I think high maintenance women have gotten a bad rap. To me, it says they think they are “worth” the extra effort. Most of these women refuse to settle for anything less than the best. What’s wrong with that?
I am guilty of “that” type of maintenance, but I think that falls under personal pride. Where I am not high maintenance is in attention. I am not one of those women who need lots of attention from Joe. I am fairly laid back when it comes to birthdays, anniversaries, and even Christmas. If I need a present, then I will go buy it for myself. We don’t go out very much; we choose instead to stay at home.
With all that said, I still need “some” attention. I can remember a couple of years ago, I must have been feeling sorry for myself, because I told Joe, “I am low maintenance, not no maintenance!” He thought that was hilarious! LOL! Over the years since, anytime either one of us is feeling a little deprived, we will once again repeat the “I am low maintenance, not no maintenance” mantra. Lol!
Today’s outfit falls into the low maintenance category. I wore this top on the blog back in October, under the post “What Not To Wear.” I think I did much better this time, let me know what you think. I bought this fringed poncho top in Juneau, Alaska back years ago when I was visiting my daughter. I love the top! I really do like to wear it all the time, since it is just so easy to wear. It hides a multitude of body issues, and would work for a lot of you. However, those who are the petite side, might find this a little difficult to wear.
I chose to wear white crop leggings this time with the top. It definitely goes with the low maintenance vibe. This leggings were purchased at Walmart, but you can pick up a pair almost anywhere. Most of them come in a one size fits all, but some come only in S, M, and L. I have on a L, but I also have a M and they fit about the same.
How do you like this wooden tassel necklace? I told you in this post (I am wearing the stripe pattern necklace w/red tassel) that Kay & Star had let me pick out another item to style. THIS boho necklace is my very favorite item yet from them… That is saying a lot because I have loved everything that they have sent me. But, I really, really love this huge tassel necklace. It is wooden, it is long, and it has a huge, really fluffy tassel. The tassel alone is 8 inches long, and the overall length of the necklace is 37″. This is not your typical necklace; this is really noticeable. I chose the dark lush brown color because I like to get a lot of wear out of an item. This necklace can be worn all year round! I think this would even look great with a black outfit, or something really dressy. Now the wheels in my brain are starting to turn and think about what to wear with it next time. Everything I have received from Kay & Star has been high quality, and very, very pretty. Remember to check out Kay & Star’s Etsy shop, you know they are going to sponsor the next giveaway which be coming up this time next week.
You thought I had forgotten about my suede fringe sandals didn’t you? How could I have forgot, these things are too cute. I bought them a couple of weeks ago and just now got around to wearing them. These are by Sole Society, and they are not very expensive at all, under $40.00! What I like about them is they zip up the back. I hate trying to put on shoes that have those little closures on the side. I can never see how to get them on just right. Everything about these shoes is just cute, and I thought they fit in with my whole boho theme.
