Gold Medal Army

Army Gold Medal by Pretty Shiny Sparkly

Incorporating the army trend into a wearable outfit “for the rest of us” can be a daunting task. Unless you’re Alexa Chung. But, I digress.

That’s where gold accessories come in.

They add some feminine, fabulous flair (say that five times fast) and can really brighten up an otherwise dreary palette. (Hello? Army fatigues are meant to blend in–and why would I ever want to do that?)

I’m pretty sure HB gets super tickled each time he comes down the stairs each morning. As I’m fixing a bowl of Cheerios – he pauses to take in the (at times elaborate) day’s outfit. I just smile and shrug – it’s part of the package, baby!

  • Such a cute outfit! I love the knee high fishnets. Don't worry, my hubby finds me amusing too 🙂

  • I'm so glad you went with gold. I recently asked some of my readers on FB which they prefer – gold or silver. The majority said gold. I gave them a big BOOO YOU GUYS. Gold is fab. And I really do need to get those wedges…. 😉

    • Funny thing is, I'm normally a silver person! So I own very little gold-colored accessories. What you see here is just about all of it! But I'm working on it 🙂

  • I don't own a lot of gold, I'm not sure why. This outfit is so cute!
    I need to go shopping for gold now.

  • Super cute look! And my HB does the same thing at times, even though he's in to fashion. I think they have a hard time understanding our need for whimsy. 🙂

    I love your blog, by the way. I stumbled upon it from Tuesday's 'What I Wore' Breton post. I also participated!

  • Love the outfit (sanz the fishnet knee highs though, sorry). I have recently added some gold "bling" to my accessories too and really love it!!!
    My husband knows by now that if I'm wearing it it must be "the style"….but still questions me sometimes. 😉 He says he can't keep up. OH, and francesca's rocks! I recently discovered that store in a trip to Charlotte. Wish I had one nearby!

  • o honey you're so cute =) miss you so much!! i think i love the jewelry the most

  • soo glad I found this site! you really give some good inspiration in your outfits!

  • I like your shirt, shorts, wedges and belt. you look great! The only thing I can't really appreciate is the knee high nylon. Is it in style? 🙂
