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.

|Maybe my new Michael Kors purse would be a better summer accessory?|

I think my face looks like I'm saying, "Aren't we done yet?!" Nothing like a forced smile, eh?
