my outfit: mixed metals?!? (+ giveaway!)

Told you I was over summer.  This is a straight up fall outfit.  I may have been a little "cozy" (ahem, sweaty) in this outfit... but I won't complain!  I will however say that I am in love with gingham lately... so get ready. Get ready.  This top was sold out in my size, so I actually got desperate, err CREATIVE, and bought it a few sizes up to wear tied at my waist or tucked in.  Desperate times call for creative measures.  You can quote me on that.


I've gotten a few questions from readers and friends in the past about "mixing metals"... You know: "Can I wear gold with silver? Rose gold with regular gold?" etc, and I never knew how to answer it because honestly... I never tried it!  But the fine folks over at Monet sent me a slew of jewelry to try out and like a 5 year old... I just tried it all on at the same time.  And you know what!?!? I loved it!  So go forth and mix metals!  You can quote me on that too.


I love how the bracelets and the necklace have a super classic, almost preppy feel to them... especially since that is what I am totally striving for with my style this fall.


Oh, and did I mention that there is totally something in it for you!?!?  I've got THREE (yes, 3!!!) of these silver bracelets to give away to my readers (that's you!).
