I have pretty much been a silver loving girl since my teens. Give me a great pair of silver hoop earrings and I’m good to go. However, something very interesting has happened to me this season – I’ve got a bad Gold crush! Suddenly I find myself wearing it all the time cheating on my silver accessories without shame.

The fall/winter season has black and gold combinations in everything from leather and chunky gold necklaces to shoes trimmed with a midas touch. My new favorite piece is a vintage gold charm bracelet that belonged to my mother’s that I have to force myself to take off. IMG_2314

 

 

 

 

 

We have to keep reminding ourselves that fashion is a fun expression of who we are and not to be taken so seriously.

Is there a trend that you’re loving this season? I’d love to know.

Rock the gold ladies!
