Gold Details

Jacket c/o Queen's Wardrobe, Shirt Kelly Wearstler, Jeans Madewell, Purse Vintage Chanel, Sunglasses Ray Ban, Flats Thrifted (no tag), Lipstick Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in "Raspberry Pie", Necklace Stella & Dot, Earrings Sorrelli 

I've always favored gold over silver. I'm not exactly sure why, but I love the
way it stands out. For someone with very feminine style it adds a nice
edge. I decided to play up the chain details on this Chanel-esque blazer
with some more subtle gold accents.
I wore this outfit last Friday and after work Thomas and I walked to
Fort Mason, where they have Off The Grid on Friday nights. They have
around 30 food trucks varying in ranges of cuisine. We went with Thai for dinner
and kettle corn for dessert. It was a fun evening with live music and beautiful weather.
 If your in the area on a Friday night, you should check  it out!

A great outfit! I also prefer gold, sometimes I think because i have in my mind that gold is better for my light skin and my blonde hair. But well, maybe it's just because gold makes us women feel more "ladylike" and "precious" - I don't know. Anyway, I love this outfit with the golden details, a jacket like this could also be a good diy project!

I can't believe you found sound a gorgeous pair of thrifted bow flats! So perfect for you and they pair beautifully with your stunner of a jacket. I used to favour silver over gold but these days I'm much more drawn to opulence of gold.
