Struggling with Pink and Gold

I title this as such because it was a total struggle tonight putting this outfit together. My husband got tickets to his sold out company event last minute and we couldn't get a hold of family members to babysit until the very last minute. I had to get ready in a rush and just had no idea what to wear. It is not fall yet here so a lot of the items on my list were out. I felt I shouldn't do too revealing so all combo's with my seriously mini skirts were out. Then figured this was a concert and there would be a lot of standing so anything with stilettos or tight heels were out. That narrowed it down to just a few combo's. This was a combo I actually liked but when it came to topping it with a jacket I struggled. First went with navy blazer which was cool but then couldn't find the right necklace gold tone necklace. And lets face it without the right necklace the whole outfit was just blah. So then decided to totally just go with all gold. This jacket's cut was perfect with the cami. Pink is not the best color to wear with gold but this burnished bronzish gold kind of works. Layered necklaces and bracelets to match. This super old TJ Maxx find purse was the final perfect addition.

Of course there was no time to take photos beforehand. These were all taken at the end of the night in the parking lot by my husband!

Today's Activities: It was swim and music class day, but the morning swim class does not start until 10:30 AM and that feels like a vacation for us to leave that late. I did 2 loads of laundry and put it away and cooked a crock pot meal and still managed to leave early enough to stop at a craft store on our way to buy supplies to make my son's art project for preschool class. After swim we met family at TJ Maxx and had lunch outside. After naps left just early enough to stop for coffee at a cafe that has a train table play area before our music class. After the class the whole craziness of trying to find someone to watch the kids and get ready while occupying kids started. Left after my brother and dad got here to meet my husband at his office then took the shuttle to his huge company event. He works for a company that has 12,000 employees so this was like attending a public event except everyone was in plain clothes as they had come straight from work. We had a good time though listenning to Dave Matthews and just enjoying being out just us.

Here is the big sign on the stage. You might not have heard of the company name but just look on the back of your cell phone (with the exception of i-phone) and you will see the same logo!

And here is Dave Matthews:


  1. I happen to think that pink and gold are fabulous together!! I much prefer pink with gold than with you did well!

  2. I really love this outfit. Totally cute. The boots are the best!
