Metallic Chic

Happy Monday!

I would like to give a huge 'Thank You!' to everyone who had wished my husband a 'Happy Birthday'. He actually read each and every comment and was super happy with all the sweet wishes. You guys are the best! Made becoming older a little bit easier. ;) We celebrated with a nice dinner of steak and sea scallops then for dessert we went to a fondue restaurant for lots of chocolate.. we definitely had a lot of sweets in one night! haha..

You can probably tell from the background that the weather is still being bi-polar with all the rain. I wasn't about to get my hair all wet so this was the best I can do with taking photos. haha... good enough until the weather gets better (whenever that is). Anyways, I love this outfit because I wore two metallic pieces (top and skirt) and paired it with some burgundy tights to give it a color break with the neutral colors. Just a great way to wear metallic without going overboard with the shininess. 

How do you like to wear metallic?

  8. Aw, I missed your post about your husband's birthday! But I'm glad to hear you two had a chance to celebrate it :) Happy belated birthday to your other half <3 My boyfriend and I just celebrated his belated birthday this past weekend as well!

    And I love that you chose a bold color for leggings (anything other than nude or black for leggings is bold for me.. haha) because it really makes the outfit stand out with the metallic skirt!
