ALL IN THE DETAILS: A Little Bit of Gold

If you’re anything like me, then you’ve had the “into-all-types-of-accessories” phase. This basically means that you’ve tried everything from statement necklaces to dainty jewelry and from handmade earrings to ankle bracelets.

I saw this Fashionista on my way to get coffee and fell in love with the dainty pieces that complemented her simple yet cute outfit. Although the outfit seems basic when you break it down, it’s the pieces she paired together that make it stand out. This Fashionista started with a pair of blue jeans and a high-collar white tank top. I know what you’re thinking: It’s winter, and she’s wearing a tank. Actually, it feels like summer in San Diego right now! (surprise, surprise).

Her adorable, brown suede booties caught my eye. I hope booties never go out of style because they can go with any outfit. Now for the details. For her backpack, she threw on a trendy yet totally appropriate, leather backpack with gold accents. The dainty details came with her gold Alex and Ani bracelet and gold beaded bracelet. With a few gold accents here and there, you have a totally doable outfit when you’re running late, but it can play off as effortless.

How To: Playing with accessories is the best part of every outfit. They can completely change an outfit from day to night and can be paired with almost anything in your wardrobe. If you’re feeling like your outfit is a little plain, go for the bold statement necklace. If you want to feel a little more feminine, throw on some gold and silver jewelry as rings, bracelets, and necklaces. I absolutely adore mixing metals, and you can never go wrong with it.
