Summer Metallics

by Heather

I don't wear a lot of metallics in the summer. I did several years ago but now it seems I  reserve that look for the holiday season.  However, when a fellow blogger said that her link party this week was going to feature metallics, I thought I'd try to rise to the challenge. It was fun shopping my closet to see what I had, and once I got started it was hard to stop. Gold? Silver? Pewter? Maybe all three? Nah, I'll save the pewter for fall but I will do the gold and silver. I found outfits that I hadn't worn yet this summer and also put a couple of new pieces into play. I really like the idea of someone else suggesting a "theme" -- helps break me out of fashion ruts into which I fall.
Chico's jacket/pants; WHMB tank in white with silver sequins
Michael Kors purse and watch
Ann Taylor bracelet (top); Etsy Ocean Dreams Hawaii sterling starfish ring set
Sperry Topsiders in silver sequins
Chico's linen tunic and slacks; Michael Kors purse and sandals; WHBM belt (reversible: gold to silver)
Maybe my new Michael Kors purse would be a better summer accessory?
 Chico's open-weave gold sweater (with nude cami underneath) and dark denim jeans
I think my face looks like I'm saying, "Aren't we done yet?!" Nothing like a forced smile, eh?
New Chico's necklace with three removable brooches
Another Michael Kors purse and watch; Kiel James Patrick woven gold anchor bracelet
Coach navy and gold bangle; other bangles from local shop
Sperry Topsiders in gold metallic leather
And no photo shoot would be complete without a little welcome interrruption from the granddaughter and the puppy.
Pretty sweet pair, aren't they?
Wishing you a wonderful week full of smiles and wagging puppy dog tails!

Love,
Heather

    1. Isn't MK great?! How does he do it? I pretty much like everything he does: watches, purses, clothing, shoes, etc., etc. I need to work for him, I think.

  5. Hi, Heather. You know how to dress up an outfit better than anyone I've ever seen. I'm taking notes. :)
    I adore that Chico's necklace with the brooches and have just ordered a "my price" crystal statement necklace from ebay. Can't wait till it gets here!
    Those two in the bottom picture are sure a couple of cuties!

    1. Thank you, Lisa. You'll have to share pictures of your statement necklace when you get it. I haven't tried ebay yet so I need to start checking that out. Was at breakfast this morning with a bunch of ladies and they were talking about Facebook's virtual yard sales so I'm going to take a look at that way to sell and buy "stuff."

    1. Always good to connect with you, Kelly. How are things in New Zealand? I've been hearing a lot more about metallics lately, too, and I didn't realize they were "trending" again.

  9. Good Lord Woman! You have the metallics in spades! I can't decide which MK I covet more! The first one is spectacular, but the new one with the gold embellishments, GORGEOUS! Metallic was right up your alley! Haha (also have to say that your linen tunic outfit is awesome, and I want your white MK watch) Okay, done now.

    1. Thank you. I'm thinking I'm going to get a lot of use out of that necklace. Can't wait to pin the brooches to a denim jacket for fall.
