Wearing Gold as a Color & Fancy Friday linkup

wearing gold

I have been wearing gold and/or gold colored jewelry since I can remember. Well that’s not entirely true, because in my childhood and adolescence I wore silver. But soon as I was old enough I was wearing gold. Mid twenties or something like that. You might think, what has age got to do with it? Well, I don’t think gold looks good on young girls, it’s a bit tacky.

Wearing gold in jewelry, bags, shoes and clothesshirtdress with purple and orange

I don’t like cool colors. I look like I’m sick when I wear cool colors. (like as if I am not sick lol) Silver is a cool color. Therefore gold. Fortunately, I also like gold better than silver. I have also always loved gold colored zippers, buttons, closures etc. in clothes and shoes and bags. How perfect is it when you see a  dress with beautiful warm colors, and a lot of black, and some gold through it! Would be perfect for me no?

I was searching for a long time for  gold colored ankle boots. And I finally found them, they are even on sale! But still haven’t ordered them! Because I will not be wearing them this season. I know I will regret this in a few weeks. So please tell me to buy them!!

Wearing a shirt dress with goldblack moto jacket

Shirt dresses can no longer be ignored in the fashion world. They are also so versatile. Wear them as a dress, or open as a kind of cardigan or jacket. And really any kind of shoes or boots go well under them. This one is a very soft and a bit shiny fabric and feels very nice on my skin. I love the colors together and like the fact that it has black in it! But the touches of gold make this shirt dress perfect! It has little strokes of gold.

I am wearing a cotton moto jacket with the shirt dress and fabulous sandals. These are from Tamaris, I almost only buy shoes and boots from this brand! I love my statement black ring and wear it a lot. It also reminds me of my beloved England, because I bought it there in a antique shop. Are you a gold or silver girl?

    That’s a lovely dress on you! Such nice colours! And I agree, you should buy the boots! 🙂 I’m more of a silver person but I do have a few gold pieces!

    Hope you are having a good week 🙂 It’s a bit cold here – winter has arrived a week early! Thanks for the link up 🙂

    I love purple and orange mixed. Very bold colour combination and very uplifting colours too. As so often, you have done a great job at changing the vibes of your outfit by adding something contrasting, like here the cool biker jacket with a pretty feminine and flowery dress. It goes very well with the bold colours and I love the total effect of it!

    Love,

    The colours are gorgeous on you Nancy – I love the sandals too! I wear a mixture of gold and silver. When I was young I only wore silver – mainly due to only being able to afford it! Then when i had some money I bought and wore gold – I never mixed them either, but now I’m older I wear gold and silver together! Happy weekend Nancy. Jacqui xx

    Nancy,
    I love the shirtdress!
    Those sandals are FABULOUS!
    I tend to wear both warm and cool colors but they have to be bright and happy.
    Which means that colors have yellow in them.

    Have a wonderful weekend my friend!

    Nancy, this dress is fabulous on you! The colors are absolutely gorgeous. I have always been partial to silver over gold, but it really depends on what I am wearing that determines which metal I choose for my jewelry. Have a great weekend, my friend!

    I love your dress Nancy! I wear gold and silver – sometimes together, which I never did when I was younger. I really wanted some gold slouchy boots from Zara over the Winter but they sold out in my size. I keep seeing them on eBay but Zara stuff gets more expensive on eBay…I just can’t justify spending £70+ on them. Although while searching I found some red fabric knee-high boots (also from Zara) and had to buy them instead! I’m hoping they arrive when my husband’s at work or he’ll moan about me buying more stuff! Hope you have a great weekend!

    Always love shirt dresses and this one is particularly lovely. Colorful prints on black backgrounds are my weakness. The moto jacket in cotton is brilliant. And those high heeled sandals are super sexy! As far as gold.silver I tend to mix it up.’

    I’m a gold person, too, Nancy! I’m wavering a bit on it though because of my “new” hair color. This dress is so beautiful, I love the pointed leaf design. Well, if you’ve been looking for a pair of gold boots, you should buy them!

    Beautiful Nancy! I love the colors in your dress, and the fit is perfection! Looks great with the strappy sandals! I feel the same about jewelry- prefer gold as it is warmer on me. MY mom has white hair and I often feel ladies with silver or white hair look best in silver jewelry, like you said, its a cool tone thing.
    Have a great weekend!

    I’m more of a silver than a gold girl, actually. I’m wearing both silver and gold jewellery but I do not like gold zippers! Well, never say never, eh? What I do love is your wonderful dress. The colours are gorgeous and it looks absolutely amazing on you, especially teamed with that biker jacket! Tamaris shoes are the best, they’re about the only brand that do not pinch even at first wear! xxx P.S. Do buy the gold coloured ankle boots! xxx

      Exactly! About Tamaris. The moment you step into those shoes it feels good! Yes, I did!

  18. 22nd May 2020 / 18:22

    Wow! I just love this layered look, Nancy! The dress is fabulous and the moto jacket over it is perfect. Those sandals are wonderful, too! As for gold ankle boots – YESSSS!!! Buy them now, while they’re on sale!!!! I wear a lot of silver. That’s probably 80% of my jewelry collection. But recently I’ve been steering more toward gold. I hadn’t thought about silver being a young person’s color, but they don’t really appreciate gold (real gold) because it’s a lot more expensive than silver and maybe that’s why (I know that was my main reason). One trend I haven’t yet really gotten into has been rose gold. I think I just haven’t found the right pieces, but it’s kind of limiting as to what you can wear it with. Thanks so much for the linkup and I hope you have an awesome weekend. Ours is a 3-day with our Memorial Day holiday on Monday – yay!

    The short jacket looks so cool paired with the dress – and the sandals just elevate the look. If you really love those boots, then get them especially as they are in the sales. I wear gold and silver but I must admit gold suits me better as my undertone is warm. Saying that – I wear all colours depending on the undertone.

    I am both a silver AND a gold gal! It depends on what I’m wearing. I like gold when I’m doing a 60s or 70s or 80s vibe – it just seems to go better. But when I want to look badass, I pile on the silver.

    You forgot copper! Everyone forgets copper, lol – it’s always left out! I am a huge fan of copper jewelry, particularly the specific brand Renoir (or their sub-collection, Mattisse), from the early 60s. I have a collection of copper necklaces, earrings, cuffs, and brooches. Copper is a lovely warm glow and to me, looks very luxe. Sometimes gold can look garish or tacky.

    I’ll be joining your linkup tonight – I’m wearing my DVF dress today!

    Love this wonderful dress on you! And yes, buy the gold booties!

    Yes, buy the booties, Nancy!!! You need a little diversion right now, as we all do! You wear those colors so well and I love the geometric print on that dress. I like gold and silver but have mostly worn gold for most of my life. I, too, look best in warm colors so I guess that’s why I tend toward gold jewelry.

    Have a great weekend!

    I had a pair of gold flat sandals a few years ago that I loved: I wore them until they broke. Haven’t thought of gold vs silver with age, I will have to give that some thought. I feel like I used to wear a lot more gold when I was younger, now I wear more silver.
