Hello! I would like to start this post with a shout-out to my roommate, Taisha of Fashionably Aú Naturale, for taking these photos. You guys should definitely go check out her tumblr and follow her. She primarily reblogs fashion-related and street style photographs. Anyway, onto what I wore today!

I started my look off with this creamy-white and black striped dress. I love the way that the stripes on the top of the dress run horizontally while the stripes on the lower portion of the dress run vertically. The gold accents on the dress (on the buttons, collar, etc.) also instantly drew my eyes to this dress. Believe it or not, this dress cost me less than $15 at Ross. How crazy is that? 

Because I knew that I would be doing a lot of walking today, I slipped my feet into my pair of Doc Martens. Still working on breaking these lovelies in! I wanted to add another pattern to my look so I grabbed my leopard print crossbody

I played up the gold accents on the dress by donning two pairs of golden studs, gold-rimmed sunglasses and a glitzy golden necklace. This glitzy golden necklace is the latest addition to my jewelry collection. And let me just say that I love it! When I saw it on ShopLately, I knew that this necklace would be the perfect addition to my collection of necklaces. This is the Bitter and Sweet Chain Necklace that Lily Wang sells on ShopLately for $16+ free shipping. 

ShopLately is a very interesting site because it is essentially an online market place where numerous jewelry designers and companies can sell their jewelry and other accessories. There is a wide range of different options on the site. Earrings, necklaces and bracelets abound. ShopLately also carries bags, hats, scarves, watches and pins among several other items. There are so many different styles to choose from that it can almost be overwhelming. Whether you are looking for a piece of jewelry that is edgy or boho or glam or classic, ShopLately is bound to have it!

And now more about this necklace. When I received it in the mail, I was ecstatic. I love the juxtaposition of edgy and girly what with the spikes and diamonds combo. Surprisingly, I also really love the length of this necklace. Typically I go for longer necklaces but I must say that this necklace has me re-evaluating that opinion. The quality of the necklace is also wonderful. I have a feeling that I may have a hard time putting this necklace down this fall!
