Sprinkled with Gold

Today’s outfit is not earth-shattering or super-inventive, but it is a variation of my work uniform for those days when I’m feeling less than creative. All I really need is a cardigan and a pencil skirt to look presentable in the office.

But what I do think makes this outfit a little more fun is a sprinkling of gold accessories and my very beloved polka dot tights.

Can I sidebar for a moment on these tights? I have been wanting polka dot tights for forever. Seriously, I’ve lusted after them for a couple of months, which is eternity in my book. So my very sweet husband made several stops while traveling for work until he found me a pair. He deserved a little blog recognition for that one. 🙂

For my accessories I layered one of my daintier necklaces with a large one rather than rocking my typical statement necklace, but I think layering can make just as much of an impact as one bigger piece.

I even doubled-up on my bracelets, mixing gold with rose gold. It seems like gold-tone jewelry is my go to these days.

Do you find yourself wearing more gold than silver jewelry?

    Love that your husband took the time to find you the perfect pair! And what a great job he did picking them out. I have been wanting a pair for a while now too 🙂 I love how the gold accessories give the outfit a little something extra. We all have our “go to” work outfits but I love that you mixed things up by adding all the pretty accessories.

    i definitely have outfits like this, too, that i rely on when i’m not feeling that creative. my go to is usually a pencil skirt and cardigan too. and i love the effect of your layered necklaces, that is something i have not yet tried (i don’t really think i have any necklaces that would look right) but this is good inspiration!
