black and gold. day three-hundred-sixty-two

Ever since I started the blog and found this black and gold number last fall I have been obsessed with the combination of black and gold. It really shows in the new (to me) skirt and Steve Madden pumps (gosh I love hot are they seriously?). I last wore this shirt for the blog on DAY THIRTY THREE while i was exploring the new styles of Fall 2012. Black and gold is one style that is definitely me. Black surprisingly looks awesome on me when paired with gold.  It is a GO TO style for me and something that will last regardless of if its a trend or not. 

I have been having terrible sinus issues and last night was the WORST (when wearing this outfit) so enjoy the pink nose. I finally went to Safeway today and loaded up on decongestants and nasal sprays. I am feeling totally out of it but at least I wont be ruining the beautiful moments of the wedding with nose blowing or cutting out early from the party (like I have the past two nights). I am looking forward to getting my jam on. Also. THREE MORE DAYS OF THE YEAR. Looking forward to a bit of a break and getting slow your style ready.
