When is the last time you wore any outfit adorned with sequins, paired with strappy metallic heels and topped off with dangly rhinestone earrings? It may sound like a get-up for a high school dance, but a bit of glitz and glam is ideal for a warm girls’ night out or a dinner date. Mariah Carey isn’t the only one shining a spotlight on ‘glitter’ decade after decade because I love a bit of shimmer! Plus, metallic heels and pumps are so HOT right now.
We spent the past few days in Mallorca, Spain. Here’s some sparkly traveling side notes and what I wore on our first night out to dinner…
The Scene ~ Mallorca, Spain
Why a Fuchsia Dress is a Staple Piece ~ This year, partly because of traveling so often, I’m focussing on finding ‘staple pieces.’ A hot pink or fuchsia dress is an automatic tan booster, looks great on women with any hair color and skin tone, stands out in vacay photos, plus brights are always trendy for summer.
Packing Lite? ~ Summer travels often require a carry-on and creative packing skills. A box of statement necklaces weighs more than you think, so now I keep an eye out for already-embellished dresses. Simple, light, and easy-to-pack.
Metallic Footwear is a Spring ’13 Must-Have ~ In the past week, I’ve spotted metallic heels all over fashion blogs, from pink and silver metallic pumps on Atlantic-Pacific, and this mirrored pair on Paulina of Lil Bits of Chic.
What about the Guys? ~ I noticed men in Mallorca wearing lightweight shorts, pastel or white pants, white collared shirts and definitely loafers or boat shoes.
Will you be adding metallic heels to your wardrobe this summer?
