Besitos from Cabo.....

Recently, I was lucky enough to go to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico to ring in the New Year with some of my favorite gals. I was heading down to Mexico for some fun in the sun and relaxation, which is exactly what I did. Laying out in the sun consumed so much of my time, my only shopping time was the night before we were leaving. As I walked around the stands and shops, I saw bracelets, earrings, necklaces and hand-painted pottery (and A LOT of NFL ponchos..strange), but nothing caught my eye. Disappointed, I left without finding what I was looking for--even more frustrating, I wasn't sure WHAT I was looking for. That is..until I got to the airport the next day where I spotted a gunmetal grey, crumpled cuff bracelet. Even though they were calling our flight I had to run over and buy it. I finally found my special piece of Cabo to bring home with me. As I was sitting on the plane admiring my new treasure, I looked down and saw I had a gunmetal grey chain necklace on..and my nail polish is gunmetal too! I realize gunmetal has become my new obsession! Maybe even my new black?! Now don't get me wrong, I love the black pieces I own. In fact, like most people, it seems to be the majority in my closet, but since my trip I've noticed my "go-to" color black, may have some competition now with gunmetal grey. Gunmetals deep grey color adds a rich touch of sophistication and to any outfit, giving my style some dimension. From nail polish to shoes to necklaces and bracelets, I am absolutely loving gunmetal.
