Fall trend: Metallic

kelly rae nelson

It only takes a night or two of sleeping with the windows open to start thinking about fall. With changing seasons of course, comes the magic of buying new clothes! What’s on trend? Metallic. We all love metallic because it’s so easy to match up with just about anything, especially shoes, they are the go to when you’re not sure what color shoe your outfit needs. 

I am in love with my glassy silver oxfords! On my first wearing in Washington DC I got stopped and received the thumbs up over these gems. Here is where I bought mine- Silver Oxfords and my Midi skirt. I love this casual but trendy look!

I shopped all sorts of metallics for you:

We had a short trip to DC this past Friday. The weather was perfect! We took these pictures at the rooftop bar in the W hotel. If you are in DC and need a drink with a view, this is the spot. You can see the White House and the Washington monument and of course, a bunch of other buildings that are very-important but I can’t name them all 😉
