I don’t think there is a better color combination than gold and navy blue. I think there is something very regal, refined, and somehow romantic about these two colors together. The ruffles on the navy blue blouse pair well with the gold brocade skirt, creating a dimensional look. This look can be dressy or casual, which is an added bonus. If paired with classic gold-emblem Tory Burch flats they can a staple outfit for a nice day in class or lunch with my boyfriend, but when paired with gold-sequined Stuart Weitzman peep toe pumps they can be taken into the evening for movie night at the Angelika Film Center. Since a few of the sequins and beads in the bow embellishment on the navy blouse are cool toned, I was able to sparingly incorporate a little silver into my jewelry rather than just sticking to yellow gold. 

This section is more beauty than anything, but instead of sticking with the coral pink lip colors I’ve been wearing lately (Laura Mercier’s Pink Dawn is my FAV), I decided to branch out and wear more of a sherry color. I kept my eyes simple with dark brown gel liner and a sweep of a dark peach blush without shimmer.
