Gold accents, wearing my new Asos purchases

The weather was a little warmer today so my leather jacket has gone back into my wardrobe. Instead I wore my new cardigan and pencil skirt from my last Asos order. Only thing I haven't worn yet is the wrap dress. Added my coquelicot Balenciaga velo and some red flats to add a bit of colour.


Here's what I wore today (sorry for the spot on the photo, need to clean the lens):


Cardi: Asos Cardigan with chain trim (first seen here)
Tee: Cotton On
Necklace: House of Harlow
Bracelets: the usual plus House of Harlow
Skirt: Asos pencil skirt with zip details (first seen here)
Shoes: Rubi flats
Bag:  Balenciaga Coquelicot 2011 RH Velo from Reebonz. Wearing the velo strap doubled up - video how to is here.


Closeup of accessories:

Mixing metals isn't everyone's cup of tea, but I don't mind wearing gold and silver jewelry together.


Really liked the outfit in the morning, but then I started to worry it had a bit too much gold. I'm more of a silver girl. Probably won't pair the necklace and cardi together again. Ever had second thoughts about an outfit after wearing it for a while?

  1. What a cute look for work - I love that cardi with the metal trim, it's so chic!

    I know what you mean about re-thinking an outfit but that's why my bag's always jingling - with other accessories to play with. I don't recommend it though as it can get very heavy!

    1. Thanks! :) I like the idea of carrying some extra accessories around! I used to carry a scarf on my bag just in case until I realised I never ended up wearing it. Some days I wish I still carried the scarf though, like today!

  3. What a beautiful cardigan! And the red B is the perfect pop of color! I don't mind mixing metals either - do it quite a bit. And sometimes I end up removing jewelry too! (It ends up in the zipper compartment of my purse.) :)

  5. Cute outfit! The red flats are just the right antidote to grumpy weather.

    And there's nothing wrong with mixing metals.
    My wife and I have celtic-style engagement rings that mix white and yellow gold. The colours are reversed on each of our rings: white outer band and yellow inner knotwork for me, and vice-versa for her.

    So yes, your mixing looks nice. It adds a daring touch!

    1. Thanks :) those rings sound beautiful! Our wedding rings are very different, would have been so pretty if they matched like that! :)

      And love wearing red as a POP of colour :)
