I just couldn’t wait to try on my new dress that I ordered for one of my best friend’s wedding at the end of March! Her colors are navy and yellow (or is it technically marine and canary?!) and I think it’s an absolutely beautiful and classic combination. Just this past Saturday we surprised her with her bridal shower (we’re so sneaky ๐Ÿ˜‰ and had a blast. I’m so happy to see her finding the love of her life and enjoying this whole process.

It may have been raining, but that isn’t going to stop me from putting on these shining shimmering heels from Corso Como. The cushions inside are to die for and I could probably run a marathon in these babies. Okay, I’m not going to try but I’m just saying! ๐Ÿ™‚

Just to bring out the sparkle, I wore my very favorite statement necklace and sequin jacket that I purchased from Amazon in December (for $19!). I love how casual the fit is, yet how dressy the sequins make the jacket. Definitely becoming one of my favorite toppers!

Now Trending: The Metallic Belt

The metallic belt trend is everywhere lately and one of my favorite places that the trend has popped up has ย been on the red carpet! This chic and edgy trend has been made popular by the beautiful ladies of cinematic film such as Jennifer Lawrence in this red stunner with gold metallic belt!

I’m loving the way the metallic belt stands out against all black ensembles, giving it an unexpected edge. Also, the pairing with shorts and a blousy top is so flattering! Hide wide hips and a tummy with high-waisted shorts, a wide metallic belt, and a sheer blouse half-tucked for a look that is not only comfortable but looks amazing too!

I’m trying to get my hands on one ASAP. Are you feeling the trend? Would you wear a metallic belt? What would you wear it with? Personally, I’m thinking I’d sport one with a mint dress or over a tunic with leather pants or jeans.

Comment below and let me know if you’ve found an affordable version and what you’d wear it with!
