Punk Floral for the Gold

gold + punk floral

Like my last post, we'll also file this outfit under "stuff to wear now Now NOW." So while temps are still in the high 80s, I'm wearing these brightly-hued shorts - though yikes, I am pale! Maybe it is a good thing that I'll need to be covering up pretty soon so I'm not longer blinding people with my chicken skin-pale legs ...

I'll be sad to retire these sandals though, as they have pretty much been my go-to shoe this summer and have been able to add some nice oomph to my outfits. Who would have thought of gold shoes as such a nice wear-with-everything neutral?

Which makes me think that maybe I need to invest in some more gold-hued footwear. What would you ladies think of metallic gold pumps for the fall, like with a point-toe? Would that veer too much into circa 1986 territory or does it have possibilities?

  2. Those shorts make me smile. What a happy sweet pattern! Lisa, go for the gold pumps. Even if they veer into 1986 I have no doubt that because you are wearing them - they will be incredibly stylish.

  4. I was just thinking about gold pumps too, I saw them on someone in a magazine the other day and they looked so chic. I say go for it! on you they'll be more 1956 movie starlet, less 1986 party girl (although that could be a good too LOL).

  6. I, too, am a big fan of gold sandals--they're such a perfect summer neutral! I think some gold pumps would be perfectly appropriate and not too Cyndi Lauper.
    I also love your shirt--where was I when that was in J.Crew Factory stores? I'll be stalking eBay to see if I can find one...

    1. Unfortunately I don't really remember, probably a year or two ago. My big sis actually gave it to me.

  7. I prefer silver (mirror) pumps over gold, lord knows why, but I think that seems a bit less flashy and easier to match. I have a pair of mirror oxfords and I'm pretty keen to wear them this fall.

  9. Love this look girl! You always look amazing. I think that the gold pumps could be cute, but you just have to find the right one. I have a pair of gold sequins pumps and I can't wait to wear them this year.
