Hello, lovely Soulflowers! This is another outfit post honoring October’s birthstone, Opal. I went for drinks with friends, so I kept my look pretty casual. I also wore my glasses – didn’t want to fuss around with contact lenses. All of the action happens above the neck. Lol.
Opals are hardened silica gel and contain 5 to 20% water. Because of its many colors and energies, opals represent several elements and used for all seven chakras. Opals come in all colors imaginable.

Even though opals are “rainbow gems”, paired with black the colors really pop. Wearing the ornate opal pin in my headscarf makes me feel like a queen, and the pin was only $20. Not a bad price to look like royalty.
Peace, love & darkness,
