but now getting used to my Christmas gift from Pater, the watch I decided on last January but couldn't justify buying myself . . . love it!
The meme rules didn't specify WHEN those Five Accessories were being worn. From October through April around here, you'll rarely see me out without a hat, and most times that hat will be a beret . . .
Similarly, I invariably have a scarf at my neck. Despite a huge (too much) variety to choose from, I've been gravitating pretty consistently to this red alpaca handknit, a nice antidote to the grey skies. . .
and with head and neck well-comforted, I like my hands warm as well. The short gloves get the most wear, red or caramel or leopard brown/black, but sometimes I wear the long zippered black for a bit of drama.
So let's see: 1) Bag, 2) Watch, 3) Hat, 4) Scarf, and 5) Gloves. Legally, I'm done, but let's open up #1 again and see one last, concealed but important "accessory" I never like to leave home without. I really couldn't care less about my cellphone and rarely use it, but I'm NEVER without a book. You never know when you'll have a pocket of reading time and I've made productive and enjoyable use of many a line-up or ferry wait this way.
There you have it, then. About what you'd expect from me? Or have I disappointed or surprised?
