A Black and Gold OOTD

Here’s my first OOTD for 2018! I was just feeling my outfit this bright summer day. This striped and floral dress is super light and floaty. I wore it with my favourite necklace and shoes.

With the mix of black and yellow, I came up with my name for the outfit! It seemed fitting for a new years theme.

I got this necklace for my birthday. It’s very minimalist and delicate. A gold chain with a small moon and star.

This dress immediately jumped out to me. I love patterns in general. This dress has two different ones, but it comes together nicely. I have so many dresses now.

Since the weather has been getting really hot lately, I’ve been wearing my hair up. I love keeping it down, but it makes my neck feel all sweaty.

Now that it’s 2018, I’m aware that autumn is a few months out, so I’m soaking up all the sunshine that I can!

How has your 2018 been treating you so far?

  14. I absolutely love your necklace. I used to buy lots of big standout pieces, but lately I’ve been loving simple and delicate jewelry. It’s cool to watch ourselves change over time. I’m also a big fan of mixing patterns and pops of color. Have I told you how much your tattoos accentuate you? xo

    1. Thanks Lyz! I’ve always been drawn to more delicate pieces. Maybe one day I’ll like the standout ones more 😄
      Hehe, I always a ppreciate the compliments about my tattoos. It always seems to surprise people when they realize I have some 😄

      1. Haha, you’ll be one of those old ladies with huge pieces of bright jewelry and accessories saying, Live your life kiddos!

  15. i like that skirt on you 🙂
    and of course i LOOOOVE that necklace, I mean why wouldn’t i? LOL
    and you seem to have the same skin tone as I do, because that gold necklace looks great against your skin
