Simple, Fabulous, Shimmering Gold!

Ever had one of those moments when you have no idea what to wear? Either the choices are infinite or you simply hate everything in the wardrobe! I am 100% sure that every woman has found themselves in this situation!

I decided to put myself to the test and see how fast I could pick out an outfit! My reason, my schedule these days can be pretty unpredictable and a few times I have been caught short and unable to decide on what to wear! It's not all the time we can have our perfect outfit preselected right? 

My task was to pick something with a bit of glitz and glam. On my way home from work yesterday I decided that I would see what I could do outfit wise in the space of 5 minutes! I quickly ran through my wardrobe in my mind (or least what I could remember owning) and decided I was going to wear a skirt of some kind. 

By the time I got home I quickly leafed through my skirts and stumbled across a black pencil skirt by So Fabulous with shimmering gold front and back panel; I had my glitz quickly taken care of! 

I decided that I would keep the skirt as the focal point to my outfit and so I picked a simple black tunic with V front detail that I picked up from Simplybe about a hundred years ago lol. That's the thing I love about staple pieces, you can make them work for you pretty much all the time and can play around with them however you want! I tucked it into the skirt, added a Primark cinch belt and I was good to go! If had a pair of gold heels I may have worn them as another accent to the ensemble but you guys know me I love my black heels!

We all have our signature accessories and 2 that I have used for many years now are large hoop earrings and hair scarves. I have always loved hoop earrings as they are simple, timeless and work with almost everything! We ladies often have those days when nothing works and you simply can't tame those locks. For this reason I find hair scarves to be a complete god send! They save me when I need to get my routes done or I'm simply short for time and can't spend 45 minutes with the straighteners. As my theme for this outfit with simple and fabulous I thought these accessories were fitting and once again quick to select and get on!

      I try to look confident in what I wear, for me the main thing is being comfortable in what I'm wearing.
      You can't go wrong with hoops!
