Pink Pastiche

It’s no secret that rose gold has made a comeback over the past few seasons. The careful combination of gold and copper alloy results in this pink-hued hardware, which was popularized by Cartier in the 1920s. The blush-tinted metal is ultra feminine and has been showing up in watches, engagement rings, necklaces, etc. Rose gold jewelry looks great on its own, as well as mixed with white and yellow gold pieces. I especially love the pieces that mix the feminine metal with menswear-like substances, such as rubber and shades of gray. (Example: This Michael Kors watch)

I finally decided to add a set of rose gold jewelry to my collection. I’ve yet to mix any of the pieces with other shades of gold, but it’s on my list of looks to try!

You may recognize the skirt from this post. Since I paired the skirt with ultra feminine jewelry, I toned down the pink this time and added a blazer (seen here) and strappy sandals.

Skirt: Loft
Tank: JCrew
Blazer: Nordstrom
Sandals: Kelsi Dagger
Watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs
Ring, Earrings, Bracelet: Nordstrom
