Rose Gold Hour

Rose gold will forever be one of my favorite colors. Trends come and go, aesthetics change from time to time, but my love for rose gold has always been a constant staple in my wardrobe for a good number of years now. It adds a subtle yet lovely pop of color to any look it's paired with, and the same can be said for when it's featured in home decor and jewelry as well. As a matter of fact, my new apartment is slowly getting decked out in all sorts of random rose gold deets and I'm seriously loving it. It was my birthday yesterday and Austin got me such a great present: an individual sized tea pot that is in the most stunning rose gold shade! I had been wanting an individual sized tea pot for a while now and the fact that he got me that alone was great enough, but to get it literally in rose gold is just too perfect. I'll post a cute pic of it on IG once I get my hands on some loose leaf tea and actually put it to use, but until then I will just continue to admire its aesthetically pleasing beauty. As for my birthday, it was all really great and I'm excited to see what 22 ultimately has in store for me. I got to be all fancy at Nobu, had some amazing food both there and at Blue Plate Oysterette later on for dinner (their lobster mac and cheese is literally one of the greatest things I have ever eaten), and just had an overall lovely, relaxing day. I'm now in Portland for a fun little week long trip and will make sure to keep you guys updated on Instagram, as well as another travel diary recap once I'm back in LA!

I've been meaning to get an off the shoulder top in this stunning hue so I was pretty pleased to find that SheIn had this piece on their site. I had actually been curious to try out this specific style of off-the-shoulder for a while now, as it has definitely been gaining popularity in the fashion blogging world. With sleeves as voluptuous and statement-making as the ones here, you definitely want to keep the rest of your ensemble fitted and sleek, otherwise you risk looking a bit disproportioned. I originally tried pairing this top with my signature denim skirt but it didn't exactly work the way I had wanted, so the next option was a trusty pair of black skinny jeans. A double buckle belt added some lovely extra flare to the look while my favorite fine gold jewelry pieces served as the perfect finishing touches.
