Mixing Metallics

Friday, 27 July 2012

by Adele

There was a time when mixing gold with silver in an outfit, or in jewellery was a big No No, yet now I find myself comfortably being able to mix up the metallic pieces in my wardrobe.

One of my newer pieces I literally haven't been able to stop wearing is my new Filippa K metallic tee thanks to The fabric is uber soft & it's just so easy to sling on with any of my coloured denim. 

I'm afraid I'm a little behind on outfit posts. I actually shot these photos & posted on instagram before our break in Norfolk but have only got round to showing you guys now. Still they say better late than never!

I was wearing...
metallic tee c/o
jeans Topshop
scarf Oasis
clutch & ballerinas Zara
sunnies Marc Jacobs
earrings Vivienne Westwood
watch Rolex
bracelet Miu Miu
ring Alexander McQueen
nail varnish Chanel Holiday

TGIF! What have you got planned for the weekend?
I'm excited that my parents are coming over to meet Hugo!!

I know what you mean Adele! I was never a metal mixer either until recently. In fact I went so far as to my handbag metal has to match the jewelry...yup that's kind of the reason why I have so many bags. This is a great look, I love the clutch and the flats! SUPER excited for tonite and I can't wait to see what's the buzz around David Beckham at the opening ceremony!
