Sometimes you just need to harden up a soft feminine colour with a little black and then amp up the whole look with some metallic. Am I right? I’m livin’ on the edge and doing both! Remember back in the day when you were told to ‘never’ wear black and blue together? Yeah me too, but I call bullshit on those style rules. I mean look…
How cute do I look?
Not in an I’m up myself kinda way, but in a stick THAT up your clacker kinda way.
Look at the way this ‘Romance Pale Blue blouse’ just pops with the black denim, and how the metallic brogues add some shiny sparkle. Ohhh shiiiiiny 🙂
It’s in the details.
A brougue lends itself to pants and I just love this champagne pair,the ‘Alex’ from Frankie4 Footwear. The feature laser cut, colour and superior comfort make me all kinds of happy. Ladies, in case you are wondering…of course you can wear metallic shoes in daylight hours 🙂
The ‘Alex’ are also available in black and I’m itching to grab a pair and have some fun dressing them up with different laces to create more looks with. Can you imagine some fluro pink laces against the black or maybe even some old school lace ribbon? F.U.N. You can find the black ‘Alex” brogue here.
I could have added a metallic watch but instead chose a fun ‘snap watch’ in navy The colour navy is so on trend and adding a different shade of blue just layers the colour for amped up style. Yeah, it’s also kinda like a middle finger salute to the style rules.
