Black & Gold, Black & Gold.

Gold H&M collar necklace, Black c/o StyleMint Magnolia top, Gold CC Skye and c/o LUXLA bracelets, White American Apparel pleated midi skirt, Ivory vintage Chanel purse, Tan Zara wedges.



I noticed I never had my hair up in a pony-tail on my blog, so decided why not today?  And my love for midi skirts continues, with this AA silky soft pleated one.  For this outfit, I wanted to have fun playing with the color palette of gold, black, and white.  These colors particularly are very classic and wanted to give it a modern sophisticated twist, including my all-time fave Chanel vintage purse, gold accessories, and my loveable Zara wedges.
And as if the gorgeous duo (my big style icons), Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, couldn't be any more amazing style-wise, they, as you may know, have a great collection of loose comfortable and affordable T's online at StyleMint.  Truly this top is so comfy, I chose it specifically because I like to tuck in my shirts whether into skirts or shorts, and it has this convenient tight fit on the bottom part.
Aalso, new nail polish color! I am in loovelove with the soft sweet shade of "Summer Peach" from AA.  Pretty soon, I want to also add Chanel nail polishes to my collection.
