|Adrienne of The Rich Life (on a budget).|
Inspired by the metallic looks at this year’s Oscars and the release this month of a very glittery movie rendition of The Great Gatsby Adrienne of The Rich Life (on a budget) and I thought that for May’s “How I Wear My” post it was a great time to unleash our inner magpies!
I always love the unexpected flash of metallics in an outfit, whether I’m wearing it or observing it! I never get tired of metallics and there are some lovely ones featured here in gold, silver, bronze, and pewter.
Adrienne, above, of The Rich Life (on a budget), is wearing a dynamite bronze jacket she found at Goodwill! I love how she styled it, don’t you?

Sarah of Cloud of Secrets says of her Marc Jacobs for Target pewter clutch:
I love warm pewter or soft bronze for accessories, because I can wear them with gold or silver, or warm or cool tones, or everything and both. I think the clutch is working here with warm gold tapestry and cool grey jeans.

Becky of Pink Cheetah Vintage is wearing a gorgeous dress of her mother’s from the 1970s, her all-time favorite, with the perfect gold belt.

Silk Path Diary writes of her metallic shoes:
I’m not terribly adventurous with metallics but these flats get a lot of wear with everything—jeans, trousers, dresses, skirts. They are from Clarks Girls (I have tiny feet), the leather is so soft and the colour is a soft gold.

Suzanne of Suzanne Carillo Style Files loves these silver sandals because they go with everything. I love the sandals AND that owl bag!
|Heather of Vintage French Chic.|
Heather of Vintage French Chic writes of her Anne Klein shoes and Coach bag:
I love wearing metallic accessories, especially shoes. Even my summer sandals are metallic. I just feel they can be more versatile and go with more things.
I totally agree!
|I love the color of Heather’s bag and shoes!|
|With Tippi the cat in the background, on the hunt for something. I don’t want to know!|
I usually incorporate metallics into an outfit with accessories, typically shoes (though after seeing these lovely ladies with their metallic bags, I wish I had one too!). So when I found these Bandolino shoes I went a little nutty and bought them in two different metallic tones—silver and bronze (I also bought them in black patent). They are so comfortable! I wear them all spring and summer long.
|These Bandolino shoes are faux-lizard stamped, which I love.|
The silver crushed glitter belt is from J. Crew and the mint green sleeveless knit tank woven with silver metallic thread is by Bisou Bisou.

What a shiny and fun way to welcome May!
