I have my reservations about black and gold. Or rather, too much black and gold. I think the loose fit of the jumper and the soft girliness of the lace skirt let the black and gold accessories do their thing though without giving ‘that’ look. And by ‘that’ I mean tacky. I’ve had this curb chain for a while now (a while in Thankfifi time is just over a month) and, in spite of it being reminiscent of one which floated atop the impressive chest hair of a boyfriend circa 2001, I really like it. It’s a cheapie yes, but it’s weighty and golden and manly. Manly enough to demand being paired with pale pink lace. What do you think?

Yup, agreed. Great chain. I have a similar one found in a thrift shop but it’s long and with a bit of silver in it too. I have, however, yet to find a way to wear it without looking a bit like Mr T…
Nothing wrong with Mr T – loved that guy growing up 😉
Love this look! Just my type of style. Comfortable, too. “Perfect”!! And Mr. K. looks well-rested. You always have such wonderful background(s) in your photos.
we are so lucky that there are so many great locations near where we stay – this flight of stairs is just outside the park on the way to work
that skirt is everything!!
thanks nancy, looking forward to styling it for warmer weather
Great outfit, these boots are so cool! Also thanks for leaving your Instagram name, I just followed you over there 🙂
Oh I know what you mean by black and gold but I think you did a wonderful job! I love how you added the pink lace, it’s unexpected and softens the whole look.
all about the balance
I think this was the perfect balance of black and gold! I love the frilly skirt with the casual sweater! Love.
You look just incredible, I like very much all the golden accents!!!
thanks so much
