Sparkle On :: Shag Sweater & Brushed Gold Pleats

Hi everyone!! Happy Monday :) Hope you all had a great weekend!


Today's look is one I'm super excited about because I've established an undying love for this skirt. It's mid-length, a sparkly brushed gold, and beautifully, structurally pleated. Please tell me what's not to love? It's officially my birthday week, so I wanted to kick off the festivities with some feminine outfits that makes any girl feel like a fabulous princess on her birthday. It's probably all in my head, but hey a girl can dream and a girl will sparkle while sipping on mimosas at brunch with her girl friends. 


I love the juxtaposition of the lush, fur-like sweater against the luxe gold skirt. I searched high and low before finding this sweater, and I was so surprised how difficult it was to find a semi-cropped black shag sweater. However, after trying on many a different black tops, the shagginess of this sweater added the perfect richness I desired as a pairing with this skirt. It was what I had envisioned all along so you can only understand my excitement when I finally stumbled upon it at PacSun of all places!

  4. This is one fantastic outfit, I love every single detail of it! The skirt is to die for, I'm already in love with mid-length, pleated skirts-- the brushed on gold just makes it even more incredible! Also, that cropped fur sweater is adorable, I got a black faux fur cropped jacket from H&M recently and am planning on wearing it this upcoming weekend for a night out. I love that necklace and those strappy heels as well!


    Last but certainly not least, Happy Birthday beautiful! My birthday is Feb 1st (there are so many birthdays at this time of the year haha), so I am already starting to think about my celebration activities myself ;)

  8. Thanks Debbie :) I searched high and low for this sweater I couldn't believe how difficult it was to find! I think I saw that faux fur cropped jacket from H&M though! I considered buying it instead of a sweater, but wasn't too sure how to style a top underneath for the purpose of this skirt. Can't wait to see your pairing though if it makes it to the blog!!


    Happy early birthday to you too!!! I still don't know what to wear for my birthday brunch this weekend. Fashionista problems..lol :) Hope you have a great weekend! xx
