The Golden Pants

Ever since I saw the Balmain Spring 2012 runway looks, I've been inspired to incorporate metallic into my wardrobe and my long running search for the perfectly structured gold pants has come to an end.  I found the last pair of these gold jeans at ZARA...and they just so happen to be my size!  I love adding standout items to my look.  Therefore, I added a deep purple blouse along with a structured blazer with gold lace overlay and leather trimming.  I kept neutral shoes since the outfit is already bold enough.  Let me know what you think!

What I'm wearing:
Bebe by Kardashian blazer
Express blouse
ZARA jeans
Guess gold watch

Feminine and Flirty

Today's post is a little more feminine and flirty because I wanted to incorporate this beautiful pencil skirt that I snagged.  I am typically not a huge fan of the color purple, but I love this skirt.  When I spotted it, I thought of the Gucci ad with a green/purple dress with a gold belt and I imagined styling something similar to it.  On the other hand, it can be styled many different ways.  I decided to go with something a little more feminine and fitting to the nice weather that we're having in Miami now.  If you aren't very tall like me, it is ideal to purchase long skirts that drop right before the knees so you don't end up looking even shorter.  I also paired it with some nude heels to elongate my legs and kept my make-up minimal with nude lips.

What I'm wearing:
Guess top
H&M skirt
Forever 21 heels
