OOTD: From Evening to Day, A Touch of Gold!

Hello, everyone...I so hope you are warmer this week!  We are back to typical South Texas, cold in the morning, warm in the afternoon...layers and trench coats work really well.

I showed this metallic gold tunic over the holidays, because I purchased it at Chicos for an evening party.  This week, I decided to style it so I could wear it during the day...just about anywhere!

To take it to a day look, I added:

A V-neck black long sleeved Tahari top purchased at MARSHALLS last summer.
A recent purchase of SIMPLY VERA LEGGINGS from KOHLS, on sale (I own these in two colors...love the fit and fabric!)
A really fun, CHICOS NECKLACE sale purchase in December
Leopard slip-ons by R2 from ROSS, purchased last fall.

I could live in an outfit like this!!

The tunic easily went from an evening look to a day look, and I felt very comfortable in the shimmery metallics!

Have a wonderful Monday...start your week with a smile!  And make sure you check out the creative women at VISIBLE MONDAY!!  and The Fashionista Style Hop!

  17. Pretty snazzy tunic, Pam ... the fabric is lovely. That statement pendant says just what you want it to, and elevates that outfit right to artistic!

  18. At first glance I thought your shoes were an embroidered blue and gold. I had to take a closer look. What a cool necklace. It reminds me of Anthropologie...Very organic.

  19. Love the leopard flats. I was just saying to Une Femme that they are like the ultimate must have in a gals wardrobe. A neutral.

  20. I recently purchased the Simply Vera Leggings on sale and I love them. They are a great fit and true to size.
