I love wearing metallic accessories. But through the years I have found that I am drawn to pewter metallic…not so much gold or silver. I like a more muted metallic look, I guess. I have owned a pewter metallic Coach bag for a few years now. It has always comes in handy when I put together an outfit that needs a little punch…a black handbag would be too blah and a red too crazy. Pewter does the job.
(yes, I sometimes wear sunglasses in the house. you don’t?)
Even my summer sandals are metallic. They go with everything. I have a pair of Birkenstocks that are older than the hills. I could have thrown them out last summer but instead chose to have them resoled because I love them that much. But I also bought a pair of Naot’s last year to serve as a back-up. They are fabulous too.
(oh my. someone needs a pedicure for summer. asap.)
My new metallic love are my Anne Klein ballet flats. I needed something that would be easy to “slip on and go” for the Spring months…it has been way too cold for sandals yet. Last Fall I bought my first pair of ballet flats (you can see them here) but unfortunately I can not wear them comfortably without some sort of stockings or trouser sock–neither of which go well with capris or ankle pants on warmer days.
These shoes are so comfortable with or without nylons/hosiery. I am quickly becoming a ballet flat addict. However, because these go with practically everything, I have no plans of buying more shoes. There’s no need!
Whoa…guess what? I found another pair of Naots metallic shoes in my closet while searching for my sandals. These are more of a gun-metal metallic and are a clog style. I wear these more in the Fall…sometimes the Winter and Spring–think cool weather.
So that’s my little metallic accessories collection. Here to serve me well. Are you wearing any metallic?
