I think I naturally have this sort of attraction towards shiny things, but I tend to shy away from them because the glam look isn't in my comfort zone. A few weeks ago I was perusing Steve Madden online and these two pairs, of course, caught my eye. A little apprehensive at first, but I thought, Why not? It's summer and I wanted to try something new from my habitual black boots and black sandals. First up: the Darrt pump in a gorgeous melted-metal-like finish, 'Pewter'.

Thought I'd downplay the shiny metallic by pairing the pumps with a basic knit pullover and boyfriend skinnies. Something about a jeans and pumps just speaks laid back chic like no other, just this time with a little more slouch than usual and a bit of lustrous pizazz. Cuff the ends on the jeans and the sweater, good to go!

And funnily enough, in this case I thought a combination of long overalls and denim would need some sprucing up, so the glossy Marlenee sandal in 'Green metallic' did just the job.

Still trying to edge myself comfortably into styling and wearing metallics, but determining how to balance the looks with a touch of it definitely helps. I think as we attack the outfit piece by piece, it makes the balancing process a lot easier. Do you guys usually pivot one or two pieces as your main focus when you get dressed?

Those shoes are perfect for a slight addition to adding more color! I really love those green metallic sandals! I have some in black but they are the most uncomfortable shoe I've ever worn. Share some tips please on how to make them feel comfortable if you have any!

Both looks are equally stylish. When you buy shoes online, how do you ascertain whether the fit and arch are right for you?

Seriously love your style, such effortless edge girl.

Maybe it's because my house is so stuffy right now, but all I can think of is how hot it must be to wear leather overalls in summer lol They are super hot though and I love how you styled both of these outfits!

Fc said...

Great outfit!
I also have the Marlenee's from Steve Madden but they we're just too high for me. I'm writing a blog post about how to lower the heel-height. I'd like to use one of your pictures as my inspiration for buying the shoes (because I wanted them ever scince I saw them on your blog), with a referal to your site off course. Would that be ok?
