Livin' my life like it's golden

I threw this outfit together for a wedding reception over the weekend. Blazers never fail me and gold always adds some life to any outfit! I've been wearing a lot of black lately and livening it up with colourful accessories. 

Who's wedding? Well, me and Rosie kept in touch with our writing teacher from high school and we had the great pleasure of seeing her on one of the most memorable days of her life. It was heart warming to see her in her white gown, surrounded by so much love, looking so happy with her new husband. 
blazer: value village $7, skirt: american apparel: $17, clutch: gifted (Rosie's mom), boots: expressions the bay: $20, bangle and ring: value village, $2-18, shirt, necklace and bracelet: inherited from Grandma Kitty Kats (she has the best stuff!)

    Great outfit Laura; loving black & gold! You always have great details and balance your accessories well (i.e. not overdoing it). Love, love, love, love.

  2. So glad to see you agaun, dear Laura.
    Love the golden magic touches.

  3. You look so sharp! That blazer is seriously one of the most amazing things I've ever seen get thrifted. Good score!

    This is random but I have that exact same clutch and it was also a gift! (from an aunt who happens to sell Avon, which is where mine came from.)
