Top: Jacob, (similar from ASOS). Belt: Club Monaco. Skirt: Topshop (similar). Bracelet: Juicy Couture (similar). Shoes: Jimmy Choo. Rings: Coach. Sunglasses: Gucci.


I just love the classic combination of all black with touches of gold.  In my younger (and not so fashionable) days, I was only a silver girl, and would never allow anything gold to come within 5 ft of my wardrobe.  Oh how my style has changed.  Now, the majority of my accessories are gold.


It was love at first sight with the accessories I’m wearing in these photos.  My gorgeous bracelet was a birthday present from my Mom (who I should have taken more fashion tips from when I was younger because she has always been a golden girl), and I love this Club Monaco belt so much that I purchased it in the rose gold as well. I’d love to know, what is your metallic colour of choice?



P.S. I’m linking up with Lauren from Style Elixir today for her weekly Style Sessions.

    This is SO cute! You know I am crazy for black & gold combos, so this outfit is right up my alley. You look gorgeous! I have a very similar skirt, and will now be on the hunt for a lace sleeved top to pair with it! I love the look! And that belt is perfection!

    I used to be strictly a “silver” girl as well, but slowly gold is making its way into my wardrobe. I love that belt!

    I used to be a gold-only girl, but I’ve been adding copper and silver and rose gold to my jewelry choices. I love mixed metal pieces because of the flexibility. Your belt is fantastic,a s is your bracelet.

    SAME here with silver! I have a few pieces of Tiffany jewelry that I like but don’t wear anymore because I rarely wear silver! Gold & black is my fave combo! You look fab girl!

    Gorgeous outfit Jenny! I am the same – used to love silver but now I wear mainly gold. I do still use silver but just not as much. I have been wanting a gold belt like yours ….I am very tempted 🙂

    I honestly thought this is a dress to start with, or at least a matching top with skirt! You paired them so well Jenny!

    Hey Jenny – would you consider posting about how you styled your hair for this look? How did you get those waves and what products are you using?

    I think each metal has a place in style, but my jewelry wardrobe has a lot of gold! I am trying to add more rose gold. I think gold with all black is so elegant. Jenny, you are simply stunning in these photos. Literally love it from head to toe!!

    OOOOh the 90’s and 2000s. When I would only wear silver.

    Now most of my fashion jewellery is gold as well.

    I personally like to mix it up. I wear anything now really.

    This outfit is stunning. I adore the lace sleeves..and those Jimmy Choo Shoes!

    I also used to be a silver girl, but likewise, all my jewellery is now gold. It compliments my skin tone much better than silver.
