Inspirational Monday: Orange and Gold

Picture left: Brooklyn Blonde
Pictures Right: Shirt: Gucci | Skirt: 3.1 Phillip Lim | Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs

When I saw this post from Brooklyn Blonde I couldn't believe I never thought about pairing gold and orange together. I had such a DUH moment. I love how Helena was able to effortlessly take the sequin skirt to a day time look. Being that a. I'm not brave enough to pull out a sequin skirt during the day b. I don't have a gold sequin skirt...I rummaged through my draw to find my gold Urban Outfitters skirt that I had for years. Along with finding my Joe Fresh orange striped shirt that is comparable to Helena's top to pull of the orange and gold look myself.

Shirt: Joe Fresh | Skirt: Urban Outfitters | Shoes: Marc by Marc Jacobs | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff | Sunglasses: Ray-Bans | 
Cuff  Bracelet: H&M

These two colors might not be in everyone's wardrobe but it's worth giving it a whirl. Plus, these two colors on their own are perfect summer colors...together it's just the epitome of summer!

What do you think of the orange and gold combo?

PS. Every time I typed Helena all I could think of was the My Chemical Romance song Helena....
