mixed metals.

i used to think it was a fashion faux pas to
mix silver and gold in the same outfit.
like gold earrings didn't go with a silver necklace, or a gold belt buckle didn't match with a silver watch. even down to the tiny buckles on my shoes...if it was gold,
everything else was gold.
while i still prefer to keep them separate,
i do like to experiment.

how bout you...do you mix metals?

speaking of breakfast yesterday, mini-she surprised me by making my pb+j this morning...complete with mini-he's sandwich box
and note. gawd...who's the parent here?!
of course, this was followed by, "can i have money for the snack bar?"
(denim, zara (buy); top, old navy (buy); clutch, local boutique (silver)(similar);
shoes, jessica simpson (similar))

  4. I'm exactly the same way.. if the buckles or studs on my shoes are gold/silver, everything else has to match. It drives me insane when I want to wear a certain pair of shoes but the hardware is the wrong color. I need to experiment a little too, I guess! I love how you carried the mixed metal theme throughout your outfit with the gold pants/silver shoes and didn't just stop at the jewelry! This outfit is hot!

    I do like to mix metals a little now. Isn't it fun debunking these old fashion myths? You do it so well and with so much style:-)

  9. I've always liked the look of mixed metals- its a little Southwestern to me- silver, copper, gold...

  10. Your daughter sounds absolutely adorable! :D &I don't wear gold & silver often but when I do it's usually gold eyeshadow and my silver necklace!

  11. Yes to mixing metals! And with that pink shirt, I hope this is a "trend" that doesn't go away :)

    What a sweet mini-she (I also like her side request afterwards - LOL)

  12. How cute is your daughter? These are the best parts about having kids. I have been eyeballing these Zara jeans for a loooooong time. So jealous of you! You are looking good sister! I am an admittedly metal mix phobic. Which is strange because I can mix patterns and colors like no one's business.

  13. Sooo friggin cute that she made your sandwich and left you a note, aww. I love these gold pants, so fabulous. I'm definitely liking the mixed metallics here, I stopped listening to this rule (mostly) a while ago, some rules are meant to be broken!!

  19. I used to be the same way! At one point, I would never consider wearing silver and gold together... It was one of those "Fashion Pain of Death" errors... Like mixing black and brown.

    But I've recently changed my tune (same with the black and brown "rule"). I'll mix my metals together so long as the pieces have some similar feature or are at least complimentary to each other.

    By the way, those pants are fantastic. Love 'em!

  20. So sweet Mini She packed you a sandwich! Sometimes kids really do you amaze you :)

    Mixing metals used to scare me, but I have definitely come around. You look great!

  21. Aw, that's so sweet! I really like the outfit too. I usually don't mix gold and silver very often, but I just prefer silver so I don't have much gold stuff in the first place. The only place they mix all the time is my "good" rings.

  25. I remember trying on these Zara's: they looked horrible on me. You rock them, I didn't even recognize them at first!

  33. I mix metals, I love yellow gold but one of my favorite bracelets is white gold so I end up wearing gold everywhere but on my wrist. But I think it's becoming less of a faux pas these days. Too cute your daughter made you breakfast :)
