Today I'm An Adult

I've been dressing a little casual lately, so I thought I'd remind my coworkers that I still know how to dress like a grown up.  (Though I think I got more appreciation for Monday's outfit than any other I've worn.  Apparently a maxi dress screams sophistication, or didn't you know?)

Do you have silver and gold issues like I do?  I really love these Target wedges, but I hate that they have a gold buckle on them.  I tell myself to just accept that I will always be wearing silver since my wedding rings are platinum, but a little bit of my Southern heritage still tugs at my brain and tells me its tacky.  The only choice I really have if I ever want to wear gold is to just dive in, so I mixed some silver and gold accessories with this outfit, and hoped you'd all realize it was intentional.  Or not even notice at all.  Until I pointed it out, you know.  But actually, I'm counting this belt as gold, but I'm pretty sure it's brass.

I'm sure nobody thinks that mistaking brass for gold means anything about my salary grade, right?


  1. oh that flower is such a nice touch :)

  2. You make me laugh. I'm not used to mixed metals either, although the watch I wear every day (and have had for almost 15 years) is gold and silver.

    I ADORE that skirt! And those shoes are super cute. You look great!

  3. I'm glad I'm not the only one who worries about wearing mixed metals!!! I've gotten a little bit better about accepting it, but it's probably because I'm always running out the door at the last minute and don't have time to think about it!

  4. Very pretty today. I love that skirt. :) I have trouble mixing metals too. Although to be honest, I've been married for so long that my wedding ring is kinda like part of my finger and I don't really think about it being gold when I'm wearing silver jewelry. :) So I guess I frequently mix my metals without realizing it. :)
    Also, thank you for your sweet comment on my blog. I'm still a baby blogger so comments make my day. :)


I love to hear from you!
