You may or may not already know this, but John Mayer is a lyrical genius. His songs are vague, yet descriptive, with a deepness that convinces you he's written that song just for you and the exact moment you're in. He's been one of my favorites for years, and I've undoubtedly listened to every song of his while thinking these thoughts countless times, in countless situations.

"Clarity" is one of those songs. It can apply to the need to live in the moment, moving on, accepting things as they are, or in the case of this post, accessories. Yes, you read that right. Accessories.

You see, clear accessories have been trending on the fashion scene for decades. Last summer I found the below 1960's-inspired necklace at a vintage flea market. Recognizing that it was a classic and loving its simplicity, I purchased it hoping that "clear" would make a comeback soon. Much to my surprise, this season clear accessories are the latest buzz. How very convenient!

In "Clarity" John wisely says, "And I will wait to find, if this will last forever. And I will pay no mind, that it won't. And it won't, because it can't. It just can't. It's not supposed to." He was definitely talking about fashion, ya? Maybe not. But as I said before, his songs can be what you will. 

As with all trends, clear accessories will come and go. For now, I'm loving my vintage chunky necklace. But, one day it'll pass. And at that time it'll be stowed away for the day in which its return is made.

Who knew fashion could be so deep?

To tide you over until the clarity trend hides again, I've scooped up some great + affordable options for you to sport this spring and summer. All from Etsy, which you know I love to do, as local artists truly are the ones most deserving of promoting.
