East vs. West: Metallics

This week's East vs. West style challenge is all about metallics. There are so many ways to incorporate a little shine into any summer look... of course, I went with shoes: 

{zara blazer - similar here // j. crew  tissue vneck // kova & t jeans // j. crew 'tabbie' sandals - on sale! // missguided triangle necklace // asos spike bracelet}

How do you feel about mixing gold and silver? Secret: I used to be SO anti-mixing but I've grown to embrace it. When we decided on this week's theme I knew it was a great excuse to pick up my fave J. Crew sandals in a different color. If you're pursuing a go-to sandal for the next couple months, Tabbie is the winner. Plus she comes in tons of fab colors!

Looking for a simple summer piece that works from desk to drinks? A white blazer is a no-brainer! And if you need more summer outfit inspo,  check out 6 ways to style denim cutoffs and nautical stripes. 


  1. I LOVE those sandals!!! I was the same way, completely opposed to mixing metals and now I feel like I do it everyday!! Love that you added a white blazer, I have one and never know what to wear it with! Love how all of our looks this week were totally different!

  9. yay for representing the west coast! I love your classic, laid back vibe :) The metallic pop with your sandals is perfect touch.


  10. ooo I love these sandals. How much are they in stores? I saw that they were on sale online but I know sometimes the store prices are different.

  11. Hi Lizzie! I believe they are the same price... and typically J. Crew will accommodate the online price if it's cheaper. - Ash
