Gold Stripes & Coral

Happy Monday, all! If I look overly smiley in these pictures, it’s
because I was (and am) for several reasons – one being that I found a
new part of the yard that I love as a background for style pictures, and
two that I simply love this outfit. It combines my current color
combination obsession, gold and coral, and it is comfy enough to wear
while running errands but dressy enough to wear out to eat.

I’ve also been pairing that necklace with a variety of outfits lately. It picked up the coral in the shorts for this outfit, but I’ve also paired it with a mint top and white shorts and a simple white tee and denim cutoffs. It makes a statement and packs a punch of color without being too overbearing. The best part? I found it at Forever 21 for less than $5.

I’m looking forward to creating more outfits centered around this top since the gold and stripes are versatile and will work with a number of different colored bottoms.

Note: Please ignore my nails in all these photos – I completely forgot to take off my gross, chipped polish before we shot these pictures. Oops!

    That top is SO fun! I'm going to head over to JCrew Factory to check it out right now 🙂 xx

  • LOVE this outfit! Gold and coral look great together!

  • Thanks, girl!

  • I think you'd love it!

  • You're right! I didn't even mention that the stripes are metallic – it's all about the details.

  • Thanks, girl! I'm glad someone thinks my hair looks good … I am so sick of it!

  • Thanks, lady! It definitely has become a favorite color combination of mine.

  • Thanks, girl!

  • Right?! I already know that top will become a basic staple for me.

  • Right?! Thank you F21 for your amazingly cheap jewelry.

  • I agree with you! I was sad I couldn't find the same color on Old Navy's website – I got these last year, so they must not be releasing the same color.

  • Thanks, lady!

  • Right? Thanks!

  • Exactly! The top wasn't cheap for only being a cotton top, but I knew it was worth the investment since it is so versatile. I basically can wear it year-round.

  • Thank you! It's definitely one of my favorite color combinations.

  • Yes, you sure can't beat F21's jewelry selection and prices.
