Just a quick update for today! I am working on a longer post for either tomorrow or Thursday, so stay tuned…if you dare. ;) ❤
I am still playing catch-up from over the past few months, so here is an outfit I snapped back on a cloudy day in September before we moved all of our furniture back. This outfit was a bit of a change for me, as most of you will likely notice, in that I was dressed in black almost from head-to-toe.
It was a fun change! A monotone outfit doesn’t need to be a boring outfit, and I found it a good challenge to mix patent + faux fur + cotton + taffeta with an assortment of gold drippings to add some interest:
Vest: Jennifer Lopez for Kohls (buy it here) (similar here for $42) (similar here at F21) (similar at UO + take 10% off with code “TOPARTY”)
Shoes: Christian Louboutin Mater Claude (buy them here) (similar here for $49.95) (similar here at Target)
Tassel Necklace: Topshop, NLA (similar here)
Long Necklace: Ann Taylor, NLA (similar here) (similar here) (gorgeous option here) (a fun option for $15.99)
Bag: Chanel Crackled Patent Camel Classic Flap (similar here) (and here by DKNY) (and here for under $100)
And here we are, back to a little bit of Colorado-style. Choker necklaces are a new-ish trend that has been popping up everywhere recently, and while these sleek and elegant necklaces look great under things like simple silk blouses I really like layering them with longer necklaces, too.
In fact, a male friend remarked last week (upon seeing me) that I wear a lot of jewelry. I asked if it was too much and his only answer was, “It’s a lot…but for you? Nah.”
Oh GOOD. Whew! ‘Cuz I would still wear all this jewelry (no matter how he answered) anyway, a haaaa:
