For those not in the know, Marvelous Monday is a weekly blog challenge between myself and four other fabulous fatshion bloggers. Make sure to go check out their outfits today, too! Links are at the bottom of the post.
Our philosophy: Monday is nobody’s favorite day of the week, but maybe its terrible reputation is a little undeserved. We’re on a mission to make ours (and hopefully yours) a little less awful by dressing marvelously!
This week’s theme: Metallics.
I decided to wear these metallic gold jeans (they’re shinier in real life than in the photo), paired with this black blouse. It’s a really strange wrap type blouse, with a shawl collar; a quite unusual item. I haven’t really been sure how to wear it.
Should I have tucked it into something? Did I pull it off here? Should I just give up on this particular piece all together?
Also wasn’t really sure about the jeans…they’re a bit big for me, particularly in the calf, both length and width wise, so I rolled up the cuffs. I think the contrast is nice as the black matches my blouse, but I’m not entirely sure.
What do you all think?
