Black & Gold.

I have always been in love with black accessories and gold hardware. There is just something so chic and simple and beautiful about the combo, and it’s one I gravitate towards every time. Today’s post is over three items I own that fit the black and gold bill perfectly.

First up, the shoes.

I recently posted this picture on Instagram, stating my love for my new sandals. Looking through my wardrobe, I noticed that I lacked a good sandal. For most of my adult life, black Old Navy flip flops were my shoe choice for summer. I have a pair of TOMS wedges that I bring out for the dressier times, but most of the time, you would see me in flip flops. This year, I decided to take it up a notch. I found these beauties online at Nordstrom. They are from Topshop, a brand that never fails to disappoint when it comes to quality. I had a hard time deciding between the black and tan versions of these shoes, but in the end, black and gold won out. These shoes are so comfortable, and with a small heel, are perfect to wear with jeans, dresses, and shorts.

To pair with the shoes, after a browse on Asos, I found this beautiful black and gold clutch from New Look. For $13. What a bargain. It’s nice and roomy, and has s small zip on the inside that is perfect for keeping my phone safe. It has a turn-lock closure, to keep everything inside. IT also comes with a chain to be worn as a shoulder bag. If I’m going to be honest, it isn’t the best quality of material (after owning a Whistles clutch, I’m spoiled) but it works well for nights out and dinner parties. It’s also a beaut to look at.

I can’t remember the first time I saw Daniel Wellington watches, but I am pretty sure it was about 2 years ago. Ever since, I have been drooling over their Instagram, waiting for the day that I would own one. For our anniversary, my hubs got me one and I am in love with it. I’ve worn it everyday since I received it. From the oversized face of the watch, the thick leather band, and the rose gold hardware (which is probably my favorite part), it is perfect! I did have to add an extra hole on the band, because I have super tiny wrists, and it fits much better now than it did when I first got it. Daniel Wellington is my favorite, and if you haven’t checked out their watches before, do. They are beautiful, classic, and simple. Mine is the Classic Β Lady Sheffield, in case you were wondering.

So that’s it. My favorite black and gold accessories that I own. I’m sure if you see me around, I’ll be wearing a combo of at least two, if not all of these, all summer long. Are you a black and gold person? Or do you prefer solid colors? Or black and silver? Let me know in the comments.
