shine on

I have no idea where i am going in this outfit but I hope it’s somewhere fabulous, and hope that time is sometime soon.  I’ve been obsessed with it since the try on session and instagram snap over a month ago.  Spring is a buzzing here in NYC and as far as seasonal trends go, metallic is high up on the list of must-haves. Who says sparkle is just for the holiday season?  Rules are made to be broken, clearly.  The best part about this ensemble is not the mere fact that I was able to find a coordinated top and bottom in the coveted silver metallic color.  It’s that both of these pieces from H&M, together were $65!!!  I swear this may be the best investment I’ve ever made.  I appreciate a luxury item no less then the next person, but when finding exactly what I want for a steal – you can sign me right up, STAT!  The weather is warming here in NYC and this head-to-toe look is begging for a night out, along with other metallics I found on the interweb like this rose gold option from Topshop, an effortless high-low maxi dress from Alice & Olivia, this wear-with-everything cami by Parker, and this green (be still my heart) cropped, embroidered beaut from Zara.

This blush dress & black moto jacket combo is my idea of the perfect relationship. Reminds me of the film black swan because just like natalie portman’s character had a dark and angelic side, so does this pairing. The juxtaposition when styling can create an interesting dimension and offer balance in your total look – it also keeps things less predictable which likely proves to be more exciting. They don’t say opposites attract for nothing. Shop the look here and check out my take on it and helena from brooklyn blonde’s version too!

Happy Monday! xx #yoursoulstyle
