Marvelous Monday in Metallic

Welcome back for another installment of Marvelous Monday. I kind of cheated since I wasn't sure if I would be going anywhere today, so these pictures are actually from Saturday when I took my daughter to her dance class. It's a good thing I did it that day too, because our heat streak in Western Washington has now ended and it's pouring down rain. This week's theme is metallic. Clearly the shoes and purse are both metallic, but the shirt actually is as well. This shirt has silver thread running vertically through it, despite the fact that it really doesn't show in these pictures. Don't forget the check out the other four blogs, links will be provided at the bottom. 

Shirt: Fashion Bug. Skirt: Old Navy. Shoes: Target. Bag: Betsey Johnson. Necklace: Icing.

Not only is this skirt straight sized, I got it on the clearance rack for $6! The shoes were clearance as well, I believe they were under $15. I bought the purse for relatively cheap quite awhile back, but I got to say, it has probably one of the most stupid construction in a bag I've ever seen. The chain is connected to the top flap instead of the sides of the bag which causes it to pull open if you put anything more than a phone, small camera, and a set of car keys in it. Had I considered this aspect before purchasing it, I wouldn't of. Stupid I tell ya! Then again I also would never pay for one of these purses full price because the quality has NEVER been worth it in my opinion.

  1. This is my fave outfit of yours!!! I love stripes and metallics and I've never seen them paired together. Creative!

  2. You look beautiful! Im a size uk 22 and I can never dress up! Ive no fashion sense at all. But I was brave a few days ago and order two dresses from ASOS curve hopefully they fit because im often between sizes!! x

  3. I love how you did accents of metallic's because I know I am scared to wear full on metallic's. But I think you did a great job with the theme. I love how your shoes and your daughters shoe's are like matching, very cute! :)


  4. Those shoooooes! Love your whole outfit, blue really suits you. I like how you used the metallic as accents and subtley in the top too.

    And your daughter fits the theme too, with her matching silver shoes & shiny skirt. :)

  5. Really, this one left me wishing I owned shinier clothes. I love how you styled it this week, though! Those shoes are amazing.

  6. Pretty shade of blue, and I love the metallic accents!! Very nice!


  7. You look great! I like your necklace, and blue is a great color on you. The construction of that bag is a bit silly, though, don't know who thought that one up!
