Wearing Brown, Black and Bronze Together

WHITE CAPRIS - Express
RUST/GOLD TANK - Ella Moss
BELT - Vintage (my mom's)
BRONZE LOAFER WEDGES - Steve Madden (Thrifted)
CROC WOVEN LEATHER PURSE - Thrifted
BROWN/GOLD CUFF - Made by my mom
TAIWANESE TURQUOISE NECKLACE - Jaclyn1423

HOW I WORE THIS TOP IN APRIL:
RUST/GOLD TANK - Ella Moss
YELLOW LACE SKIRT - Thrifted
WEDGES - Cole Haan
Today I decided I needed to go for a run (and really I needed to get out of the house since our wonderful housekeeper was here - dunno what I'd do without her!).  Anyway, I packed up a bazillion snacks for the girls and attempted to drive down to the beach and push the 80+ lbs. of fun.

I know I mentioned this before but Princess Sparkles just kept asking me so many questions.  And there I was, huffing and puffing, trying to keep running.  I kept trying to feed her snacks to get her to stop talking, but it was no use.  So I tried my best to give her relatively quick but detailed answers but she just kept coming at me with more.  She was like a machine gun of curiosity!

I decided to try and do another "2 Way Tuesday" and remix something I wore before.  So here's a top I wore a few months back.  I also wanted to show you some really great jewelry pieces from my sponsor, Jaclyn1423, that I would totally wear with this if I had her entire collection (and I soooo wish I did).  So if you haven't already, definitely go check her out her shop!!!

Upcycled Vintage Brown and Gold Splattered Necklace - $16
Upcycled Vintage Gold and Topaz Floral Earrings - $12
Amber Beaded Gold Necklace - $24

Anyway, I'm excited to try and keep up with this "2 Way Tuesday" while I'm still doing my 30 Day Remix.  It's sort of like a remix within a remix.  I know it's going to be a challenge, but honestly, nothing is as tough as pushing two kids in a non-jogging stroller on the beach while trying to answer lots of questions!

"Machine gun of curiosity" - that is hilarious.

I love that rusty bronze color - it is more versatile than it may appear at first glance (as you have proven with your remix).

GretchTM said...

You look lovely! That color looks great on you. :)

Style Journey said...

You look fab as always. That purse is super cool!

I am giving you some props for running with the stroller on the beach too! That takes some skill :)

Melissa said...

I'm totally impressed with your ability to go jogging with two kids. Seriously. You are super mom. And you look incredible! I love both of these outfits, I love each piece individually so I can't decide which one is my favorite!

Come take a look inside A Working Mom's Closet

I love both these looks - I'm also slightly transfixed by those thrifted Steve Madden wedges...

I love the way you paired that rust top with the white capris! It looks so fresh!!

Ha!! And it's crazy the questions these kids can come up with! They totally know when we're BS-ing them, too!

Rebecca said...

That rust color is fantastic on you, and I like both ways that you styled the top.

Terri said...

I like the phrase, "a machine gun of curiosity." And I'm admiring the color of that tank as well.

Tinfoils Tiaras said...

This may be one of my favourite looks on you- very sophisticated but still shows our unique style! Great colour on the top and loving the jewellery! You are a super woman, running with the kids, I can't even do it alone!

Lei said...

That's a pretty pretty skirt! Love the accessories too! :)

Gracey said...

Love the "machine gun of curiosity" phrasing - I can absolutely picture it. And the color of the tank is beautiful on you - love this outfit.

Megan Mae said...

I looove black, brown and bronze together. You look so chic in that outfit.

Bug and Bird said...

i've always worn bold black and brown together, no matter what some mean girl said in high school. yes, i still remember it, and she was totally WRONG.

your outfit looks great and bronze is such a fun addition to the mix! i think those three colors are just "smooth" together

I am going to have to agree with you on pushing the stroller on a sand analogy.
Love that rust colored top. I think I like it more with the white capri's. The idea of pairing it with yellow was cool but a brighter yellow might have popped more. The skirt is very cute though.

Fierce! Once again you've shown that you can wear any color, any season...the only limitation is one's imagination. I'd love to try that top with an animal print skirt. GRRRR-rific!

Love that skirt!!! :> I guess kids are really curious! Idk if I was like that back then but when my sister was younger, she'd ask tons and tons of questions! I wanted to ignore her :P

ok I have a confession to make and I am going to tell you because I was in Target and I shopped...whew, I feel better. I thought of you while in there because I saw a lot of Calypso clearance. They have great stuff. oh well, it's not cheating until you wear it. right? I love your two featured outfits. The frilly skirt is gorgeous on you and the white pants look beautiful. White is so clean looking for summer. I am so far behind...I will catch up before I give up. Dawn Suitcase Vignettes

stylefyles said...

This color looks great on you! And the shoes are fantastic.
Love the jogging story, you are very tough to be able to answer questions and run ;)

That Chelsea Girl™ said...

What a great look! The shoes are absolutely gorgeous. The 2 Way Tuesday is a fun idea. Take care!

Josie said...

What a great way to mix these tricky colors -- I love the second outfit!

I had a hard enough time jogging w/B when she was the only one in the stroller (and weighed all of 15lbs), and I was on the sidewalk. I can't believe you pulled it off with 2 in the sand!

I really love the color of this top, and it looks gorgeous with the white capris!

Mrs. J said...

Cool idea! It's great to look at past outfits that have similar pieces. I love how you styled the blouse a easy casual look.

The necklace and earrings from her collection are calling me!
