Beige with Gold, Beige with Pink

Phew, trousers 4 days in a row… Come on, let’s take a trousers break. Funny thing is, I’m not even that big on trousers, much more a skirt and dress girl. Trousers, they get baggy knees and have potential VPLs. Plus, they are a nightmare to buy (never know my size and find it hard to find the right fit). Skirts are soo much easier, and they also come in all shapes and forms! I also want to pick up on the beige/nude discussion again. Personally I wouldn’t actually wear a beige skirt with beige tights and a beige top, what I do like though, is nude colours combined with gold.

Also thanks so much for all your combination suggestions.
Classic Copenhagen for example thinks nude goes well with orangy-red and acid yellow and Lenka loves beige and pink. No acid yellow/beige outfit, sorry, but I did find a shocking pink top. Elsa Schiaparelli would be so proud!

I guess that’s the beauty about nude colours – they are like a soft version of black and white and go with pretty much anything.

skirt: valentino roma, shoes: bruno frisoni, shirt: 2nd hand, clutch: 2nd hand

Gorgeous! You look so beautiful in a skirt. Sometimes thats what we need to remind us we are women!

AAaaw AND beyond this nude / palette's question, I (shyly) have to say that the way you slightly play with your Heel on the first picture exudes All the (capital) Sensuality of a "Fetish choreography" Dear !!!
ps: AND I really like this strong/subtle aesthetic symbiosis with your hair colour.

à Bientôt, Antoine

But stilettostetico...That's just because I lost the stupid shoe and I was trying to get it back on my foot while the self-timer released the shot... ;-)

YES, I agree, we do have to remember sometimes that we are women!

Cafe Fashionista said...

I think that I like the beige with gold better - there is something about the two colors that is just so eyecatching when paired with one another!! :)

Elizabeth said...

You are adorable! My favorite is the first combo...but who doesn't like pink?

Ddays Of Our Lives said...

Love the colors on the first pic, nude looks great on you!!

Miss Peelpants said...

You're so lucky, and looking fab. Gold and beige both make me look ultra blotchy, so I just can't wear them :(

Classic Copenhagen said...

Ah, Schiaparelli, I love her too. Such a forward thinking woman, she would still be shocking today.

linda said...

it's fantastic the beige with gold!!!

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

Oh yes! I'm a skirt & dress girl myself. I have a difficult time with pants..size & fit, etc. and find skirts much easier. You wear them well! Love the color combos :)

Barelyvogue said...

Soo true nude is def new black. Goes well with everything. I want to pair them with florals this spring!

Dancing Branflake said...

I absolutely agree! Isn't that the concept of painting on canvas anyway? Start with a neutral to highlight the vibrant colors on it. You look beautiful

drollgirl said...

i'm with you -- skirts and dresses are so much easier to find and to fit! but sometimes jeans really are so comfortable.

and the pink with beige looks super. either hot pink OR a lighter shade. i also like to wear pinks with khakis. dark, olive green khakis. or with purple. or with a bright cobalt blue.

jesus, i am prattling on forever. sorry!! and you have such a great look. i just love it. :)

I like both outfits, but I definitely love the first one more...wearing different shades of nude and making it work seems a lot more interesting and love the gold shoes.

I love that you get a sense of movement in the photos too! I'm not sure how to describe it, but the background looks like it has motion while the model is in perfect focus..

Love your blog!

bestie said...

Ooh I totally agree, nude colors can be paired with pretty much anything! And I've seen several looks that work the all-nude look. Wish I could try it some time! (:

PS I've seen your past looks wearing trousers and you look HOT!!!

A lady in a skirt will always look elegant.
Nice well written blog, I'm drawn to clever writing.
Good pics too.
Thanks for the L.V comment.

Haute World said...

Nude definitely works with most colors. For some reason I prefer the first photo, probably because I think a bright pink deserves a black or charcoal? And I like the safari vibe of the first color combination. Metallics are always a great choice to pair with neutrals though. I tend to get silver shoes to go with greys and blacks as well!

janettaylor said...

Love Ur beige top!

P.S.: ♥Please don’t forget to join the Sporty Knit Tigh-High Socks GIVEAWAY!♥
