The countdown to the London 2012 Olympics has officially begun and I couldn’t be more excited. Swimming, gymnastics, volleyball — all the reasons I’ll be glued to my TV starting July 27th. I can’t wait to see who wins the gold metals. Go Team U.S.A! To get me to the spirit, I’ve rounded up a new edition of my Color Craving series, an Olympics edition featuring some of my favorite bronze, silver and gold picks. Metallics are the perfect item to take you through the end of summer and into Fall. Specifically, I’m on the hunt for some waxed, gold metallic jeans. Let me know if you find any worth checking out!
