My look for a Thursday night date with my boyfriend was shiny from head to toe! I not only wore my vintage gold metallic jacket (also seen here with a more casual look), but also my metallic sandals (also seen here and here) that you might have noticed by now that I really love them. These days, I'm really putting the pedal to the metal this year and you'll see more shiny stuff in my posts.
Yesterday the temperature dropped to 52 degrees in North Carolina, so layering was a must in order to stay warm around town. Despite the chilly weather, the day was clear and pretty, so my boyfriend and I decided to check out a tiny little dive bar in downtown Winston Salem (Silver Moon Saloon). For the occasion, I decided to layer a cotton short sleeved biker jacket and a leather biker jacket over a maxi dress. I carried a vintage wicker bag in order to give a lady-like touch and of course keep the mix factor there, which is what is my style is all about. And last but not least, I wore my suede biker booties to match the jackets.
Since I was very young, I was always inspired by festival fashion. Growing up in a tropical weather climate it was easy to wear this style almost everyday. Nowadays, I still feel attracted to this boho trend, however I like to wear it with one or two polished pieces in order to make it more appropriate for my age and lifestyle.
When I bought this dress, I was thinking about wearing it around the Easter holidays. Obviously I couldn't wait until then and instead I wore it earlier in the week with ethnic accessories to go on another fun and relaxing trip to a vineyard.
I hope you have a wonderful Sunday.
Lately I have been incorporating more metallic pieces into my wardrobe and this time I decided to wear some of them with a nautical flare. It's very obvious that I'm a big fan of the nautical (more here) trend, so I often look for different ways to style it, therefore, you'll see them in this blog.
