The Challenge: Accessorize your wardrobe today with a touch of childhood.
When I was in third grade I got my ears pierced. This was a big deal. I was so excited. I had an earring tree, which was home to my many different pairs- both plastic and metal. Now, some twenty years later I find myself earring-less. I don’t often wear them, and I’m not really sure why. So, today I dug out my pair of ladybug earrings and put them on, I love these ones because they really look like I have ladybugs on my earlobes. I think I want to go get a bunch of other childlike earrings. It added a touch of fun to my day. Plus, it was kind of like a warning signal for others who saw me today. WARNING: This person does NOT take herself too seriously. (At least I’m trying not to.)
Today’s challenge was a little bit more difficult than it may seem. On any given day, you might find me wearing jeans and a Superman or Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup t-shirt. Accessorizing my wardrobe with a touch of childhood is fairly commonplace for me. Digging a little deeper, I thought about how kids love to play dress-up; getting all spiffed up like a “grown-up.” (Funny how growing up holds such appeal when you’re little.) I decided to don dress clothes today, accessorized by a Loony Toons tie and Superman watch. The only thing missing was my mom’s stern warning not to get “all messed up.”
