Shoes-day: J Crew Cleo Perforated Mirror Metallic Loafers

I was not looking for another pair of Metallic shoes but these were interesting and on sale. They are different from my other Metallic shoes I have (Martina, Lillian, Sadie). Though I am a bigger fan of the Darby, which the Cleo is replacing, these are comfortable.

There was a lone size 7 up high on a shelf. I didn't climb it, thought about it, but used another shoe to grab them instead. Us shorties have to get a little creative for those hard-to-reach items.

I went from 1 pair of Metallic/Silver shoes to 5! I have the Tybee Sandals as well that I purchased last year. Those are too small so I'll need to repurchase a size 7 1/2. 

I should be done with my Metallic shoe collection so if you see me posting a pair on Insta, stop me! There can't be another style that I would love, right? 

Happy Shoes-day!

More Metallic Loafer options...The Sole Society pair is a great dupe! (Invite)

TravelBella - Vegas in April

Husband and I are heading to Vegas for a few days. We are practicing for our "Empty Nest", which we have taken to quite well. I'm still sad though. I've seen The Boy become such a wonderful person and I don't want him to go anywhere. We plan to lounge around the pool during the days and catch a show or two so I'm excited to pack different things from my October trip. The bulk of my wardrobe is from J Crew with some of my Tory Burch pieces thrown in.

Que Bella - Yellow Porcelain

I realized I hadn't worn this skirt in over a year, almost two! But I love it and won't ever part with it (unless I grow out of it). I was also chomping at the bit to wear my new Sadie Metallic Slingbacks. Throw in a beautiful Spring sunny day and I have a pretty and comfortable outfit.

I added the Keating Boy Blazer in Linen since it was cool most of the morning and early afternoon. 

I wasn't too much of a wrinkled mess by the evening for an event of The Boy's.

~ Porcelain Paisley Pencil Skirt, J Crew (Ann Taylor, Joe Fresh, Kate Spade) ~
~ Sadie Metallic Slingback, Tory Burch ~
~ Ring, old Banana Republic (F21, Kate Spade) ~
~ Metallic Patent Belt, J Crew (J Crew, Express) ~

Have a Great Day!

Banana Republic - Silver Seas Statement Necklace, White Floral Delicate Necklace, Peaches and Cream Statement Necklace, Sea Glass Statement Necklace, Kissing Animal Bracelet, Aqua Ombre' Stretch Bracelet, Jaguar Ring

Lastly, some jewelry I found at Banana Republic.

Silver Seas Statement Necklace - I have enough Statement Necklaces and don't wear them very often. This one was pretty and just from past necklaces from BR, I usually find them to be a little lightweight, not necessarily cheap-feeling just not too heavy. It makes them easier to wear all day. This is very similar to J Crew's Grande Crystal Drops Necklace. I can only wear that for a few hours before it starts to get heavy.

White Floral Delicate Necklace - I was drawn to this one as well, maybe more so than the one above. I walked right by the Statement Necklace to see this one.

Matching bracelet to the White Floral Delicate Necklace

Peaches and Cream Statement Necklace

Sea Glass Statement Necklace - Brown and mint is always a pretty color combo.

Kissing Animal Bracelet - Kissing Zebra's...nuff said.

Aqua Ombre' Stretch Bracelet -These would be nice wear with a white dress. I love a Turquoise/White combo.

Jaguar Ring - This little ring was super cute. It has a Pave' jaguar head on the top.

Have a Great Day!
