Here comes the sun – if not in the sky, at least in your smile. This week we’re focused on finds that’ll make up for any last-minute April showers, and Lauren‘s latest Goodwill discovery would bring warmth to any wardrobe. Introducing this week’s Goodwill Gem: That Golden Glow.
Warmth is on its way – and so the is dewy skin, bright eyes, shiny hair from healthy outdoor fun. But why should summer have all the fun? Bring a little glimmer in, no matter what the forecast is, with warm-toned metallic finds. It’s is a simple, classic way to brighten your look and feel that golden glow all over all year round!
This week’s gem is a brilliant metallic gold pendant that’s perfect in its sophisticated simplicity. There are no rhinestones on this necklace, no cutesy charms, jewels or sequins, and yet it immediately attracts the eye. But if you look closely, you’ll see that the piece has a design reminiscent of a big, retro Christmas light separated from its strand and surrounded instead by a pretty gold circle.
Though this is a big, statement necklace, its long, basic chain, lack of bling and allover gold tone makes it appear somewhat understated as well, and easy to wear with all your favorite spring and summer looks.
Here, I’ve paired my new piece with a comfy, crisp white tee and a full polka-dotted skirt in a vibrant pink hue for a playful, easygoing feel. With a pair of neutral, cut-out wedges (for work or an evening outing) or some simple leather sandals (for daytime), this easy, laid-back look is complete.
