Fashion wise, there are few things harder than “Transitional” outfits. Mid fall, early spring, and, of course, day to night looks are all hard to make work. But I decided to take the plunge! This day to night look was centered around a minimalist gold bar necklace from AUrate. It’s a beautiful piece- elegant, simple, and ethical (more on that later!). I chose a slip dress to keep the elegant, unfussy feel going, and because it’s a perfect piece for any time of the day. The day look includes sneakers for mobility, sunglasses, and a white shirt to layer for a very Clueless feel. The night outfit includes a change in shoes, a beautiful jacket with a timeless bomber cut, and a bag to tuck any nighttime essentials into. It’s a classic look, with modern twists.
As I said earlier, this necklace is not only beautiful and a perfect transitional piece, but it’s also made in a way that I can get behind. AUrate is a NYC based company that emphasizes minimalism and makes pieces that you can wear every day. This necklace is adjustable, and customizable! In addition, AUrate donates a book to children from underrepresented backgrounds for every piece bought- one look for one book. In a world in which knowledge is power, fighting for literacy and access for children to books is so important. AUrate’s jewelry supports internal and external beauty!
