Slick Silver

MetallicSpring

First off, Happy New Year!

For one, I’m glad to put last year to bed, and be off and running on a new year. I’m still formulating my personal vision for 2015, but with irons already in the fire, I’m looking forward to it. While 2014 was mostly good, there were more surprises than I’ve had in a while and not the fun kind. I guess some years are like that and all in all, we are happy, healthy and wiser.

As for fresh starts, I wanted to show something besides winter white or cozy sweaters, even though I’m a big fan of those looks. When I saw this metallic shoe punctuating her everyday outfit, it seemed right. Right for winter doldrums and right for ushering in softer spring looks (whenever that will be).

So….I went and found some cool options for pretty silver metallic shoes:

Prada pointy toe leather pump, $650

Sophia Webster ‘Izzy’ holographic leather shoe, $210

Seychelles ‘Majestic’ d’Orsay pump, $109

 

 

Tamara Mellon ‘Addiction’ pump, $238

I’ve never worn a metallic shoe like these, but think I’d really dig it. Do you remember these insane Alexander Wang metallic loafers? Wish I had a pair right now…

Enjoy the day!

Throwing on a blanket sweater or coat is a sure-fire way to get a crisp fall look without having to work too hard. All the women shown here have started with a minimalist, neutral base layer and then let the patterned topper take the forefront. It’s one of my eternally favorite fall looks, because it looks casually chic and offers a big payoff.

Stay warm and have a wonderful day!

5 Random Things

Here are some things I thought were interesting or curious this week and wanted to share with you:

  1. Refinery29 put up a shopping guide for 12 Perfect Pairs of Tan Booties That Will Put A Spring In Your Step. High heeled, low heeled, pricey and affordable. Great picks.
  2. Tommy Ton shoots street style at the Spring Couture shows that are happening now. It’s the show before the show, if you know what I mean.
  3. WhoWhatWear gives us a lesson on how to wear your jeans with boots and how to remedy that awkward boot tuck.
  4. Is this the end of Lady Mary’s suitor, Lord Gillingham? We hope not, because he’s kind of dreamy. Get another look at this handsome bloke.
  5. And on that note, take a sip of Cocktail Recipes from the World’s Most Romantic Bars. Passion Royale, anyone?

Hang in there! It’s almost the weekend.

Street Inspiration: Worldly Winter Coats

Last weeks’ sub-zero arctic blast in Colorado had us braving daily highs of 5 degrees. Brrrrrrr! With that passed, it feels downright balmy at 35 degrees in Boulder today. Boy, does one’s perspective change quickly. Given the icy plunge into deep, dark winter, I wanted to show what women around the world (in the Ukraine, Europe, Scandinavia, Japan, Bulgaria and US) are wearing to keep warm and stylish.

It can be tough to look pulled together when the temperatures are frosty, but these women are wonderful. Their coats range from printed to colorful and romantic to classic. This is why I love local street style so much. It’s not trying to sell me something. It’s just women being real and going about their lives in the clothes they actually wear.

Have fun out there and stay warm!
