The latter days of summer are upon us and I am completely done with wearing sundresses. So when I found these amazing silk culottes that appear to be a skirt with their billowy volumes of fabric but have the comfort of a pant...I was in. Perfect for my heeled summer sandals I know that I can also transition them seamlessly to Fall with my beloved over the knee boots, and a great oversized sweater. *Just remember heels are necessary with this trendy pant, otherwise you risk looking dowdy.
As evident in today's look, I have been falling for rose gold everything lately. The soft warmth of the rosy hue is my favorite way to embrace the metallic trend of the season. From makeup to jewelry, rose gold is a modern classic that you will find everywhere. I know many people who are afraid to go with it for fine jewelry because they fear it is too trendy. I disagree. I think rose gold is here to stay. Although most flattering on cool skin tones you can find it contrasts beautifully with those on the extreme ends of the skintone spectrum. Try it out with some inexpensive costume jewelry or eyeshadow and see what you think.
We are heading up to Bass Lake and Mammoth this week for our last vacation of summer. Be sure to follow along on Instagram @ofbeautyandgrace. Have a wonderful day!
