King Midas and the Gold Sweater





Sweater-Banana Republic (similar, similar) // Button-up-New York & Company (similar) // Pants-Limited (similar) // scarf-made by friend (similar) // Boots-Anne Klien via DSW (almost exact, similar) // Bracelets-Stella and Dot, JCrew Factory // Rings-Stella and Dot // Glasses-c/o GlassesUSA.com

So, this sweater. It was one of my last January purchases and I was a little unsure about it because I didn't want to look too "King Midas." And what do you pair a gold sweater with? What can stand on its own next to gold? In the end I went classic. Black with a white button up and you can't go wrong. The red scarf added some pretty color and richness. Next time I'll have to try some fun colors because everything goes with gold! I'm loving it's three quarter sleeve, too (I'm wearing this baby across seasons!)

  3. yes! Gold goes with almost everything. I have that gold skirt and I realized that I can basically just treat it like a khaki colored skirt, and it goes with most colors!

  5. I love this with the layer and the scarf, so pretty! I bet it would look great with a blazer too.

  7. red is your colour, maybe with a splash of colour like that i could add a gold sweater. ( it usually washes me out but you may have created some inspiration)

  9. You look gorgeous. The gold sweater was a great buy. I love how this outfit has the same elements as the one yesterday, albeit this is dressy and that was casual. Those Outfit formulas I've talked about.

  14. Given my obsession with gold, as far as i'm concerned, the more the better! I think this will be fabulous in the spring with pastels as well.

  15. Okay, I was a little unsure when I saw the gold sweater in your January budget post, but oh my gosh, do I love it! It's such a fun piece! You styled it a bit more conservatively today, and I like it a lot, but I can see you having a ton of fun with it in the future! :)
