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 Zara.com, I immediately fell in love. The manly structure and shinny metallic finish contrast each other so beautifully.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_ .
