Silver or Gold?

Growing up I HATED gold. Absolutely hated it and refused (for the most part) to wear anything besides sterling silver or white gold. In fact, I think I remember telling my mom once that gold just wasn’t “cool” and that it was meant for “older ladies”. So it seems that now a days I have either had a change of heart, or fall into that whole “older lady” category, because I am a HUGE fan of gold. And I am pretty sure it all began because of Michael Kors and his fabulous watches. Thanks to MK, gold watches have been all the rage for the last couple of years, and with a gold watch, one must have gold accessories. So, I have slowly been picking up gold baubles here and there and am LOVING that I now have the option to wear either silver or gold, and sometimes even both together. I feel like it makes my wardrobe more well-rounded and allows for me to change things up on a daily basis. So when I picked up this cute dress at TJMaxx a couple of months ago, I knew that because of the cute gold buttons flanking the top and the warmth of the orange base, that it would be the perfect item to wear back to a lof of chunky gold jewelry.

And while I am pretty sure I will always be a silver girl at heart, I definitely find myself gravitating more towards gold in the summer months. The warmth of it compliments a nice tan and just feels like it belongs with the current summer trend-particularly white. But the good news is, for those of us with a preference between the two, you can get away with either silver or gold . But I definitely recommend having the option of both in your accessory collection.

P.S.  Please excuse the crease in the bottom of my dress.  Funny thing is, you can’t see it in person, but for some reason, it showed up when I put the photos through the Instagram filter.  Yikes!  😉

    1. Aren’t they the BEST? They are so comfy and flattering. I feel super boring for wearing them all the time, but they are my go-to shoes. I am trying to find a pair in black, but not having much luck so far. So glad you like this look!!

    1. Hi there! It is actually an older style Michael Kors watch. I found it at Nordstrom Rack 3 years ago. I can’t find the same one anywhere on line. But Macy’s has a great selection of newer model Michael Kors watches that have tortise details on them similar to this one. I would check there! Good luck!
