Living My Life Like It's Golden

"I'm taking my freedom,
Pulling it off the shelf,
Putting it on my chain,
Wear it around my neck,
I'm taking my freedom,
Putting it in my car,
Wherever I choose to go,
It will take me far,

I'm livin' my life like it's golden
Livin' my life like it's golden,
Livin' my life like it's golden, golden,
Livin' my life like it's golden,
Livin' my life like it's golden, golden."

The snippet of lyrics above are from one of my favorite Jill Scott's song "Golden." This song gives off a narrative to let your light shine, toast to living your life doing what you are passionate about,  and live your life like it is indeed  "golden." This is a perfect segue into today's post. Today we will focus on golden attire (if you have yet discovered from the picture above). We will explore how to pull off wearing golden accents, shimmers, sequins and all in between so you can look as "good as gold" and not like a golden disco ball. Let's delve in shall we?

There are definite ways to slip a pot of gold into your wardrobe. Gold can be incorporated with shimmery tops (Alicia Keys), sequined dresses (Halle Berry & Cassie), gold pants (Ashanti), or even golden spiked shoes (Rihanna).

If you haven't had a gold rush yet, check out these metallic items that will give you a heart of gold!!!

The saying goes "everything that glitters is not gold"...but in this case get ya shine on!!!
