Glimpse of Gold

by Jessica Sturdy on October 13, 2011

Yesterday you saw my “glam” outfit from the Street vs. Glam Style link up. Here’s the “street” outfit!

After putting on my dress and heels for approximately 5 minutes, I had to change back into regular clothes to go to dinner on Sunday night. Matt and I went to one of my favorite spots, Rocks in Lincoln Park. We wanted to go somewhere with a good outdoor patio to enjoy this amazing weather before it turns frigid. They have the BEST burgers and buffalo tater tots that are the bomb.com. They also have an awesome selection of craft beers. I tried the seasonal pumpkin beer, Post Road Pumpkin Ale, and it was great, too!

I’m kind of in a rut lately. I haven’t felt inspired in the least bit when it comes to outfits. Thus, I apologize for the boring outfits! I’m sure I just need to catch up on my favorite blogs and magazines to gather some ideas. :)

Cardigan: Express from years ago (similar)
Tee: Anthropologie (similar)
Necklace: Sequin
Earrings: Cara Accessories (sold out at Nordstrom.. similar pair)
Jeans: AG
Sandals: Sam Edelman
Watch: Michael Kors
Nails: CND Shellac ‘Cocoa’

Oh, I love the little hint of leopard on your sandals that wasn’t visible before. I think peeks like that and the amazing gold necklace really lift an outfit even when it’s a jeans and tee combo. You look great!

Thank you!! Sometimes it’s hard for me to dissect my own outfit into words, but you did it perfectly!

what a lovely daytime look…my favorite piece by far is the gold chain! I’ve always loved big statement necklaces, I’m happy they’re so in style this season! xx

I love them too! And I wear them even when they aren’t a big trend because they are the perfect way to make an outfit your own!
