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?
