BLUSHING IN METALLICS

Hello darlings!  All week long I’ve been day dreaming about Paris Fashion Week and all the magical runway shows.  You can see the highlights and shows from PFW here.  If I could pick up my life and move anywhere, it would be Paris.  Speaking of travel, in less than 5 days we’re going on a road trip to Vienna.  We will be stopping in a few cities along the way so stay tuned to see where we go first!

I wore this romantic look a couple weeks ago while exploring this darling pink baroque palace in Düsseldorf.  I wanted to create a look that embodies modern femininity.  So if you’re looking for some style inspiration or wondering how to style metallic pieces into your everyday life then keep on reading…

Location: Schloss Benrath

STYLE WITH NEUTRALS

Style your metallic piece around a neutral color palette.  A great pair of metallic statement pants or a gold pleated skirt won’t look so flashy when paired with a cozy knit, ivory coat or a simple white collared blouse.  Complete your look with some neutral mules or kitten heels.  I chose to wear my favorite nude Valentino’s for a glamorous touch—who doesn’t love a little glam?

MONOCHROMATIC

The beauty of metallic is to play with high-brilliance fabrics and light.  Pick a color that matches your skin tone and layer a light, rose gold piece under a white coat for a sophisticated winter look.  wearing separates of one color that have different textures and/or similar shades of that color for an overall tonal look.  Monochromatic looks can sometimes feel like too much.  Try pairing a shimmering slip dress with a simple pair of nude sandals for a romantic date night look.

ACCESSORIZE

When it comes to styling metallic pieces into our everyday outfits, we tend to gravitate towards bags or shoes.  Shiny accessories can jazz up your look without being overwhelming. Try wearing tailored crop trousers with a pair of silver heels for a super polished take on your work uniform.  Reach for a bag with pretty, gold hardware to make a classy statement.

WINTER WHITE

Hello my friends.  First of all, I cannot believe it’s February already!  Last year around this time I was packing my suitcases to move to Germany.  It’s crazy how fast time flies when you’re having fun.  I just want to thank you for all the love and support you’ve shown me over the course of this journey!  You guys totally rock my world 🙂

These pasts weeks I’ve been so busy running around the city (it’s finally getting warmer) and planning upcoming travels.  There are so many exciting collaborations in the making and I cannot wait to share!  Talking about warmer temperatures in Germany.  Whenever the weather is nice, I love taking the scenic route to where ever I’m headed.  I have this bad habit of wandering into every corner bookstore, flower market, and cozy little coffee/wine shop there is – but that’s all right; I’m too in love with Europe to admit it’s a problem.

With the coldest months of Germany finally coming to an end and the arrival of warmer temperatures, I can’t help but miss all the cheerful things about winter.  The twinkling atmosphere, watching the snow fall, Christmas markets, mulled wine, warming up by a cozy fireplace; the list goes on.  You could say that I hate the cold but I love winter (if that makes sense) and that’s because I come from Wisconsin, a winter wonderland.

I’m wearing this elegant Diane Von Furtstenberg wool coat – it’s easy to style over a pair of skinny jeans, chunky sweater and black booties for a chic winter look!  The design is classic and I receive so many compliments whenever I wear it.  The second spring blossoms, I’m planning on wearing this wrap coat over a feminine slip dress and a pair of nude heels.  The perfect night out look.  Speaking of, we’ve been going out E V E R Y weekend since the New Year started when I vowed to take better care of myself (drink less) but what idiot says no to a Moscow Mule?  Don’t get me wrong, nothing sounds more relaxing than winding down with a nice glass of wine..or three* cuddling on the couch with my other half.  Except going out with our friends always turns into a fun, memorable night (insert dancing woman emoji).  My point being, anyone who knows me, knows that I love dancing.  Sorry New Years Resolutions, not sorry.
