Favorite Wears: Mixing Patterns & Wearing Metallic Oxfords

I love to mix patterns, it's one of my favorite styling techniques and one I'm glad I can continue into the third trimester of pregnancy.  This skirt is one of those amazing Target online finds when I was perusing the clearance section and found this one size too-big skirt for $8.  It's larger cut is coming in handy now and when I've worn it pre and earlier in pregnancy, I just safety-pinned the back.  Once I'm not preggo anymore, I'll probably actually get it taken in (since even though it was only $8, it's proven to be a favorite of mine).
On another note, I'd been on the hunt for some metallic oxfords since seeing J.Crew's pair. Though, at the price of $258, that just wasn't in my budget.  So I looked all over, anything too cheap looked like little tap shoes and I was really in love with the idea of this shoe, so wanted a pair I'd really be able to wear and love.  Then a friend pointed me in the right direction of these Sam Edelman Jerome oxfords and I ordered them immediately.  I've already worn them twice!  I am getting wears in now, sans fall-like weather before my ankles start to swell even more (oh joy), but can already see these as a fun staple for post-pregnancy!
