White Swirls on Black with Bling & Metallics

Over the weekend I stopped by a local Nordstrom Rack to check out their #ClearTheRack sale. Actually, I almost forgot about it, but thankfully my husband reminded me and we stopped by after Sunday brunch. I’m so glad that we did!  Why? Well, all clearance items were an additional 25% off! By now I’m sure that you know I am a thrifty enthusiast! I absolutely delight in good deal! I managed to pick up a pair of metallic oxfords that I’ve had my eye on for quite some time. It’s not that they were super expensive or anything; it’s just that I was a little unsure as to how they would tie in with my current wardrobe. I wanted to try them out, but didn’t necessarily want to invest in a pair. Well, as the saying goes, good things come to those who wait J

I was thrilled with the rock bottom price that I got them for!

Once I got them home, I set about searching through my closet to see what I’d wear them with first.

Here’s what I decided on:

I paired them with black socks, and an a-line skirt. It seems like I’ve been on a black & white kick for the past year or so. I added a statement necklace to pull out the silver in the oxfords, and my Little Minka handbag for a pop of color.
I added a pair of 60’s themed sunnies to complete the look.


I was pleased with the outcome!
Added bonus: I got a lot of stares at the office, which always means that I’m on the right track-LOL!
Over to you, do you like the oxfords trend with skirts and or dresses? How do you style your oxfords?
