Well, the snow has once again come back to show its ugly face today…
Actually, I can’t really call it ugly…it looks quite beautiful outside my window this morning, wouldn’t you say?
Unfortunately, this just means I’m stuck inside for a while. Ohhh well…I’m pretty sure I could think of worse things in life.
I guess that just means I’ll curl up on my couch after I enjoy my simple, yummy breakfast.
A super-ripe banana, a mug of coffee with skim milk, and the last of my Cinnamon Chip Scones (besides the few I stored on the freezer – we’ll see how long they last in there).
So, you know what today is, right?
Happy Fashion Friday!!
Today’s Topic: Gold Jewelry
Although silver has usually been my jewelry of choice, I’ve been starting to experiment with some gold. It’s actually quite versatile! It looks great both in the winter and in the summer, and you can mix it up with so many different hues, like yellow, white, rose, tarnished, etc.
In case you’re thinking about grabbing some of your own gold jewelry, here are a few tips for wearing it!
1. Bright gold jewelry looks great with solid colored outfits, such as a simple LBD. Make sure the pieces that you wear are a bit chunkier, so that it stands out from the super feminine dresses. I did a little “window shopping” online to search for some good pieces. Here are a few examples of gold jewelry from ShopNBC. If you’re going for a brighter, more colorful outfit – go for the tarnished, vintagey looking bracelets and necklaces.
2. Bangles also seem to have become a hit lately. Well, add in differently colored metals to give it a touch of uniqueness; mixing metals always make outfits fun and stand out more. Different colored chains also work well with this theme. That way, you can wear your favorite silver ring and your favorite gold necklace and still be good to go…which is good for me, since I already own a lot of it!
3. Gold works really well with gems. Since gold stands out more, it makes the gems seem more brilliant while not overshadowing the metal, like it does with silver.
Hopefully, now, you have some ideas on how you can wear some of your gold jewelry…or you’ve been inspired to go and add a piece to your mix!
