Black and gunmetal.

Filed Under: Style
A weekday is the perfect night for a lady date. This particular evening, I went to a local wine bar with a good friend and thought it was the right occasion to don some gunmetal accessories. As much as I love silver, rose and yellow gold, gunmetal has been a recent favorite of mine.
Sometimes getting ready for evening in cold temperatures is a challenge. I typically tend to revert back to skinny jeans and pumps, but sometimes it’s fun to mix it up! Shorts and tights are a great alternative. I also recently wore this combination in a day look. Post to follow.
I really wanted this necklace from Visceral Enrapture to stand out, so I selected an all black outfit as a backdrop. This piece was created by a friend of mine from college, Katie List. She and Morgan Stone hand craft all of their unique jewelry, ranging from $25-$150. I loved the edginess of this item – it’s so different than my other jewelry!
To match the metal of the necklace, I selected my new gunmetal watch from The Trendy Boutique. This watch comes in many different finishes and closely resembles the coveted Michael Kohrs watch but is much more affordable!
