Ever feel you need to make a few tweaks in your life? As I’ve been anxiously waiting for our belongings to arrive here in Guam (well, it’s only been like three months now…but who’s counting?), I’ve been feeling restless and needing to do something creative. So, the easiest thing for me is changing up the hair and remixing my wardrobe.
Voila! Nothing like adding some blonde highlights for some fun. After all, isn’t that what they say about blondes?
In a recent InStyle issue, one of the trends featured is working a metallic look for daytime. I think it’s a tricky trend to do without going overboard, but after picking up this cute Calvin Klein tee with metallic touches (FOR FREE from our Airman’s Attic!), I thought pairing it with my Primark stretchy metallic pencil skirt would work wonderfully. Both pieces have touches of shine and don’t compete against each other.
The key is making sure the accessories are neutral. My new black mule wedges from Shoedazzle and my “new to me” Dooney & Burke purse (thanks, Stacy!) keep the overall look grounded.
I also focused my makeup to lighter, neutral colors on my eyes and let the deep berry on my lips be the only strong color.
I’m all ready for a date with the Hubby!
What’s a tricky trend you’ve worked out? What do you do to change up your look?
Until next time, lovelies!
Love, laughter, and shoes –
