Be Bold. Go Gold.

I used to be a silver girl.  All through the 90's I wore my spoon rings, bracelets and dainty silver necklaces like they were going out of style.  Guess what, they kinda were.  I even remember having a conversation with my mom about how much I adored silver jewelry, and didn't understand who would choose gold?  She told me that when I was older, I would want gold.  I laughingly swore up and down that I would never!  I also claimed that I would never wear any other style of pants other than flared... (wrote the woman wearing tapered skinnies) ahem.  What can I say?  One's style evolves, develops, and changes.  Never be afraid to go back on your teenage declarations.  Be bold, go gold.  Also linking up with the Trend Spin Link UP for Winter White!

  3. The sunnies, I die!
    And I too was a silver freak. And nowadays I know I reach for gold way more than silver! Whoda thunk!

    1. PS I'm so so happy to see you as a co-host!
      Now that I can peel myself away from just drooling over the sunnies, I wanted to say that the rest of the outfit is just as amazing! I love the winter whites with the taupe booties! I need to do this!

  4. Bonito look, el collar es precioso. Besos, si quieres nos seguimos

  5. Not just the gold but that winter white! You are killing it. Can I just say that second pic looks like a Lana Del Ray album cover? Terrifyingly fabulous!

  10. Those sunglasses are pretty amazing! And your nails! I am always in awe! I was always a silver-only person until last year when I started dabbling in rose gold. Now I've decided to be an equal opportunity metal-employer. Because...why not? ~Gina~

  12. Lovely outfit, im blown away with your necklace,its just so beautiful. I followed you via GFC, i hope you'll do the same.


  13. I was the same way about silver/gold jewelry! All of your accessories look amazing in this look. How is the new year treating you? If you're like many of us and have resolved to spend a little less this year, we'd love to tell you about Dorco. We're a shaving company providing quality razors for up to 70% less than leading brands. Chances are you're paying way too much for razors. Plus, by switching to Dorco you can finally afford to change your blades often, which will result in happier, healthier skin (something else I think we all want in 2014!) You don't have to sacrifice quality to save so much, though. Read what others think about our products at DorcoUSA.com, and check out our prices for yourself while you're there. Thanks for hearing us out, and we wish you all the best in 2014!

  14. So many cute gold touches in your outfit! I like to mix gold and silver sometimes, but I'll always be a silver girl at heart :)

    Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog! :)
