Friday Favorite Finds: 19 Glittering Gold Goodies

Hello all and happy Friday! I don’t know about you, but I have been in desperate need for this day to come. It’s been a super busy week here at Wear + Where + Well. We’ve been scrambling to meet some deadlines, plus stock up on great content before we all go our separate ways for summer vacations.

For today’s Friday Favorite Finds focus, we have an assortment of all things golden. I’ve been obsessed with gold lately. This precious metal and lustrous color just has such a classic feel about it. What is it about gold that draws our eye in and influences us to purchase the frivolous, such as glistening gold ‘thank you’ stationary? I’ll use it soon, right? Right.

Check out our 19 favorite glistening gold goodies! No matter the occasion, no matter the outfit, no matter the setting, throw on the gold and you’ve upped your sophistication factor exponentially! Give it a try with one of these items.

Friday Favorite Finds: 7 Must-Read Articles

I’ll end by sharing some beautifully profound words my sister Kelli shared with me last night. I particularly like that last sentence. May the words be an encouragement to you, as they were to me…

“I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration, I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humanized or de-humanized. If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Thank you so much for reading! I can’t express how much gratitude I have for all of you. The success of this site would not be possible without you. Comment below and share what your current, favorite gold goodie is. I’d love to know!

    Hi Carrie,
    That was an interesting article about you in The Daily Front Row.

    I’d love to know how you use Excel in your personal life….do you create spreadsheets for lots of different things (e.g. books you’ve read, places to visit, etc?).

    Have a good weekend,

    LOVE the gold glitter polish! And I absolutely loved your interview with The Daily Front Row, especially when speaking about spreadsheets. Haha! It must be an engineering thing, because I really will find a reason to use a spreadsheet for everything if I can. Have a great weekend, Carrie.
