Remix: Stripes and Mixed Metals

Remix! I started this week with a post featuring the same shorts and jewelry that I’m wearing today. I’m all about pieces that can be mixed and remixed.

Top—Forever 21

Shorts—MNG by Mango (on sale, $17.99)

Clutch—Milly (old) | similar

Shoes—Sophia Webster for J.Crew | love these

Earrings—℅ Kendra Scott

Necklace—℅ Kendra Scott 


Lip—Mac “Flat Out Fabulous” lipstickMac “Brick” lip pencil

Blush—NYX powder blush in mocha

The MNG by Mango shorts, at a clearance price of $17.99 (orig. $50), were such a great find. If you’re bottom-heavy like me, you’ll love ’em because they flow loosely over the hips like a full skirt. The longer length, pleats, and tie-front details make them a luxe-looking pair of shorts.

I’m wearing the shorts in a size 8. I sized up to fit the tiny waist. For reference, I usually wear a size 4 or small in MNG by Mango bottoms.

I’ve been so excited about the new directions of the Kendra Scott line since visiting the Kendra Scott showroom during NYFW last year. The edgier designs that embrace mixed metals particularly appeal to me. Just look at the Margot necklace I’m wearing. Gold. Gunmetal. Fringe. It has so much attitude! 

As a longtime fan of Kendra Scott, I’m looking forward to Kendra Scott opening its first store in St. Louis at Plaza Frontenac in October. I’ll keep you posted on that for sure.


If you saw my Nordstrom Anniversary sale post, then you wouldn’t be surprised by my Movado watch purchase. I’ve been wish listing a Movado bold watch for a few years, but I was waiting for a color combination that I couldn’t resist. A color combination that would make the watch the perfect complement to every look. This stainless steel band with gold plated accents, featured in this year’s nSale, was the one. 

Shop the post:
!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e     = doc.createElement(s);  = id; p = ‘//’; var cb = new Date().getTime(); p += ‘?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);
