Wanderlust & Gold Dust

Spring Metallics 

Metallic accents are still going strong in Spring/ Summer 2017. This season is all about re-defining confidence with exaggerated lines, metallic effects, and sheer textures. Bring on a new generation of edgy shimmer with all things shiny -- and hot enough to set the streets of style on fire.

Looking for ways to bring new energy to your metallic pieces? (See metallic skirt post here.)

Silver and gold already boast high-octane elegance. Mix in some laid-back charm by adding elements that have all the vintage-feels.

Some favorites: a quirky hat, a bold earthy lip, and oversize glasses.

I’m all about the 70s revival of oversize clear aviators readers. They are a sure way to make a contemporary statement with a major retro look.

To finish off the lineup – flat studded ankle boots {always} and a romantic pleated skirt will sweeten up the tough tomboy details. Loop on a neutral printed bandana for added effect, to counter-balance your glamorous undertone. Layer on a long-line blazer, the perfect transition piece this time of year for it’s unique silhouette. Bring on the textures {in this case a dose of gold-flecked glitter} with a sheer fitted bodysuit and keep the rest of your outfit in neutral pallet.

For this look I swept my hair back in a “banana bun” -- the new hairstyle for that effortless "I rolled out of bed with a perfect head of tousled hair" look. Messy + easy. This style is a modern un-done take on the French twist, achieved by rolling your hair in a low twist and adding a few strategically placed bobby pins. It’s an uber-chic alternative to the chignon with lots of loose face-framing tousled texture.

This spring, whether you live the wanderlust lifestyle year-round or dream of making the great escape, throw on your silver blues and dusty golds, and cowgirl-desert-queen off into your wildest dreams seamlessly styled in an effortless look.

Metallics

Think of this post as your holiday party crash course.

It’s officially that time of year, tis’ the season to spin in sparkly skirts and dance the night away.

Holidays arrive with endless party invites, and the perfect excuse to get dolled up. Shiny shoes, statement jewels, a bold lip… the more metallics the merrier!

Whether you have a holiday happy-hour, a formal dinner affair, or a family gathering, this season is all about infinite shine. With so many acceptable options to choose from, it can be hard to decide what to wear. From silver standout dresses to glittering separates and metallic sneakers – they all seem to be making a case for evening attire.

Like anything else, it’s about knowing what works best for you, when aiming to attract that cosmic energy.

This liquid silver skit from Anthropolgie is all dazzle and softness. Is anything more festive than sparkle and shine!? I’ve been after a metallic pleated skirt for a while now, and fell in love with this one because the material is fluid and reflective, so no need to worry about leaving a trail of glitter or sequins. It runs a little big, so size down, but it’s sooooo fab! Lightweight, comfortable, and flattering. Dressy to casual - you can always skip the strappy heel and add a chunky boot (perhaps in white!) for a fresh combo that equals that laid back holiday look.

Layer on space-age silver accents with pieces like this pearl encased clutch and luxurious white beaded texture necklace from Stella & Dot. This statement necklace has four shades of stones that look stellar set against, black, grey, white or other neutrals. (I could even see it paired with blush or mint!)

As for keeping warm, electrify the night in a pristine white coat that captures the essence of the first snow of the season. There’s something magic about this time of year that infuses the air and beckons you closer, inviting you to snuggle up inside a warm, cozy jacket and a cheeky knit cap in flawless frosty fashion.

So, cozy up in minerals and metallics, mimicking the night sky’s flashes of light and evidence of distant stars. Don’t forget to look up and simply be captivated by the sparkling, white flakes as they flutter and fall kissing lashes and dusting the earth in a glitter all her own.
