Look: Mixing Metallics
Gold pleated skirt: Storets (similar here and herehere) | Black leather jacket: old, but love this one and this one | Silver loafers: Rebecca Minkoff |Silver Clutch: old J.Crew (similar one here)
Every now and again, I try to push myself out of my comfort zone and try something completely different, and I always encourage my friends to do the same– that’s how, like anything in life, you discover new things you end up LOVING, wondering how the heck did I function without this before!? Enter this gold pleated midi skirt from Storets– I mean, obvi, it gets points for being gold, and midi, which is my fave current length. Since I knew I was mixing metallics here, I kept the top simple– just a plain white tee and black moto jacket to offset the glam feel of the skirt– and added silver shoes and a silver clutch to make the look visually interesting. I ended up loving this look– and can’t wait to wear this skirt with a baggy grey sweater, funky sweatshirts and combat boots come cooler temps!
Shop my whole look above, and I hope you try something new style-wise this week!
Black & Blush, Two Ways
Blush lace slip dress: Zara (similar here and here) | Leather moto jacket: Mango (faux and real versions I love) | Leather pointed toe booties: Zara (similar here and here)
Blush satin bomber jacket: Forever 21 (similar here and here) | Black overalls: H&M (currently loving these similar options) | Silver tassel loafers: Rebecca Minkoff
As I’ve mentioned before, I’m not a huge fan of pink– never have been, even when I was a little girl. I guess its the rebellious part of me that doesn’t want to like the “expected” color for girls; it never feels edgy enough for me. However, I DO like this mauve-blush color that’s creeping into my wardrobe the past few seasons– and when paired with black, leather, and boyish accessories (moto, loafers, overalls), my tomboyish sensibilities are more than satisfied!
