all that glitters is gold

i love the idea of creating a monochromatic look by pairing pieces of similar tones with different shades and textures.  the high waist and a-line cut of this alice + olivia skirt adds volume, while the mesh pattern adds a contrast to the silky top. to further avoid going solid gold, i added nude heels, pearls and pink accents to the mix.

metallic gold + neon pink
an unexpected gold heel
gathered cap sleeve top + high waist a-line mini
bright lips + vintage pearls
sock bun + gold clasp

top, forever 21; skirt, alice + olivia 'jaylyn' metallic skirt; shoes, jcrew 'janey' patent flat in apricot mist; clutch, kate spade bright spot avenue sally crossboy; glasses, karen walker 'perfect day'; jewelery: nashelle initial ring, vintage gold clasp double pearl strand; polish, essie 'penny talk'
