Despite the cold, rainy weather here in Chicago I have not taken these lovely sandals off since I purchased them at J. Crew last week. I went through a period of hating silver - I blame it on the abundance of Tiffany's jewelry I wore in middle/high school - but just recently I've fallen back in love with the sophisticated metallic. Don't get me wrong, I'm a golden girl through and through but sometimes it's nice to switch things up at bit. The silver is understated yet chic and seriously spices up any outfit. I contemplated buying a second pair but instead opted for a Moroccan wedding blanket (details to follow) which just so happens to coordinate. Bling, bling.
