Kung Hei Fat Choi, Everyone! According to the Chinese Lunar Calander, 2017 is the year of the Rooster. And in Chinese astrology, each zodiac is not only associated with an animal sign, but also with an element, ie: Gold (Metal), Wood, Water, Fire and Earth. This year happens to be a Fire-Rooster year, which has got me singing, “This girl is on fire!”. But as much as I looove me a good Alicia Keys sing-along, and the warm embers of a burning flame, I’m quite easily distracted by pretty and shiny metalic things; particulary of the Rosegold variety…
I’m chanelling my inner Run DMC styles of the eighties (<– check out this article) and layering on a few of my favorite chains. I started by converting my gold plated “pulse” necklace into a trendy chocker, which looks fabulous with my custom “NadittudeTM” hashtag necklace; both from Jeweliette Jewellery. I was going for a graduated effect so I incorporated this long and chunkie chain necklace, which adds the perfect amount of texture and length. Talk about heavy metal!
I worked my outfit around this incredibly amazing rosegold leather jacket that I picked up at Zara. I mean, seriously people! Is this not a great statement piece or what?! AND, it’s on sale. I’m obsessed with it. Not only because it happens to match my new white and rosegold Adidas kicks, but it’s also a brighter alternative to the classic black. It’s a great piece to carry into the Spring season.
This is a typical outfit I’d wear on my days off and for runner errands. Comfort is key, as is looking stylish and cute.
Speaking of cute, what do you think of my “All is Calm” sleep shirt? Yes, that’s right, it’s a sleep shirt and I’m wearing it as a regular t-shirt; don’t judge! (lol). And let me tell you, it feels just as good under the covers as it does out of them! My friends Laurel and Pam, also known as the Sugar Plum Sisters designed this sleep shirt for the holiday season, but I think they work great as styled here, of kicking around the house on the weekends; yoga class or even as a swim suit cover for an up=coming sunny vacay! They’re made from 95% Bamboo and 5% Spandex, and retail for $60 online.
Have a fantastic weekend, Everyone. Sending you all best wishes and good fortune for a wonderful Lunar New Year! – xo
