Metallic Shoes TakeOver

Not in a million years, had I ever thought I’d be wearing shiny metallic shoes… But here we are! When I first saw this pair on, I immediately fell in love. The manly structure and shinny metallic finish contrast each other so beautifully.IMG_3403_It’s the hybrid-ization between manly and girly, edgy and feminine, which made these metallic shoes the perfect fit for my wardrobe!


Everywhere I go lately, all I see is fall creeping in. Thick cardigans, boots and sweaters are taking over my news feed. Even the leaves are starting to turn. Here in California though, the weather is still nice and the sun is still shining… Summer clothing isn’t going anywhere for a while!



A good way to contrast the “manliness” of these metallic shoes is by pairing them with a skirt. You guys know my love for stripes runs deep and that I can’t turn down anything with stripes. This skirt has creeped into my wardrobe somehow, after I promised not to buy any more summer clothes… I usually stay away from midi skirts, as they make me look shorter, but the vertical stripes actually have an elongating effect, so it all balances out.

Another way I like to wear this metallic pair is with an all black outfit. Think black skinny jeans, black top, a leather jacket and these shoes… Or even a simple jeans and white tee!

I don’t know about you, but I’m committed to soak in the last drops of summer. R & I are actually going for a quick vacation next week. We’re heading to Portland for a few days, and we’re both so excited! Follow our adventures on Snapchat (@loveofmode) or Instagram stories @loveofmode_ . If you have any recommendations please let me know!

Are you still enjoying summer or are you ready for fall already? Let me hear your thoughts!

    WOW! This is gorgeous! I love the silver of the shoes, but they really go well with the pink and white in your outfit. Not a combination I thought would pair well together, but it really does!

    They’re so good though! Love the metallic trend, and especially in combo with shoes! Love the idea of working it with an all black outfit, these shoes will probably pop in a lovely way. Hope you’re having a lovely week! Xx

      I had to use lots of beauty tape to make it just poking through and not all out lol!

    I loved your outfit, stripes and metallic shoes! I really loved the style of the shoes and I think they can look very feminine, the way you styled them. You look very beautiful! Lovely pictures, hope you enjoy summer a lot!

    This is such a beautiful pairing, girlie! I love your new metallic sliver loafers, they look so cute with the rest of the outfit, and are so versatile! I love that they’re a fuse of sorts, pieces like that are so fun to wear and style! I’m also swooning over that purple stone ring, so gorgeous! I’ve been seeing fall pieces creep up on my feed to and don’t get me wrong, I’m honestly very excited for the fall season, but I always wonder, aren’t you hot? Haha! It’s been so hot and humid that the thought of wearing such heavy pieces just makes me cringe, though I do wish it would cool down a bit. Anyway, thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you’re having a wonderful week so far!

    I love the way you’ve styled those metallic shoes – and they are adorable! The skirt definitely makes it feminine, but also your knotted top makes it flirty – beautiful! XO

  17. August 17, 2016 / 2:13 pm

    Super cool look 🙂

  18. August 17, 2016 / 2:44 pm

    Love this look! The skirt is amazing and it looks great with those shoes! I would never have put those two together but I love it!

    I’ve seen metallic shoes before but I scoffed at it as being OTT. Now I really regretted for not trying them out even though I suspect I can’t pull it off as well as you do.

    Great outfit. I love wearing a bralette under my camis, so I’m loving this already. Love the metallic shoes! The skirt is so nice too. You can mix and match these in so many ways! You look fab!


  26. August 18, 2016 / 5:12 am

    What a perfect composition, those shoes with the masculine vibe + soft pink top with lace peeking out 🙂 I’ve long been on the fence where brogues are concerned, Tamara, thinking they’re just too mannish for me but you might have just convinced me otherwise.

  27. August 18, 2016 / 7:05 am

    You are rocking the metallic shoes! Love the statement they add to this outfit. 🙂

    You definitely balanced the look quite nicely. My metallic shoes are some of my favorites. Just got a metallic bomber I can’t wait to style also 🙂

  32. August 18, 2016 / 6:29 pm

    I think it must be beautiful to see fall creeping in, must be so beautiful this time around! Love the metallic shoes you have, it does have a feminized masculinity to it <3
