Metallic: Trend Spin Link-Up

It is unbelievably August and this week on the Trend Spin Link-Up the trend is Metallic!  Despite the warm weather, I put together this look as a fall preview. Anything with a mirror-shine is going to be making a lot of appearances in my wardrobe this upcoming season. My current obsession is this chambray shirt which is an embellished spin on a classic favorite. The soft weekend cotton staple is amped up a notch with small metallic jewels. My metallic pumps (which have been a summer favorite of mine) will certainly transition into fall, and even into winter. I love the idea of pairing the light metallic sheen as an accent to heavy winter wool and rich leather. Even though I am excited about the transition in dressing that a new season brings... for now it is still summer. I am perfectly happy to enjoy what is left of warm nights and beach time with family. I hope everyone is having a great week and thank you for stopping by!

  1. Love the look! Do those pants have a sheen on them - it looked like it from the shot from behind, but it could just be the lighting. If so, running to the Gap! Great bag :) and fab look overall. Agree that mirror shine is hot for fall and looking forward to wearing it with just about everything as a neutral!
