Put away the rhinestone glue, gone are the days of over dazzled nail art. The trend is shifting to more muted and deliberate nail art. It’s been seen sweeping the runway during Fashion Week. I’m in love with this trend. Above is a gallery of my favorite nails seen around.
I’m on a DIY kick. Hopefully I can share some DIY embellished sweatshirts. Until then (and while my laptop is out of commission), I’m in love with this nail polish that I blended from 5 other colors. I love Tom Ford’s Sugar Dune from the spring collection, but $30 a bottle is a pretty penny for most people (hello married life). I feel like this is a formidable dupe. It’s sleek and modern, while still showing femininity. What do you think?
For those that didn’t know by now (I don’t know how you haven’t, can I join you at that rock you’re living under?), Pantone’s Color of the year is Radiant Orchid. It’s a cool purple tinged with pink, and just what we need to break up this dreary winter. Read on to see the color and some examples in fashion!
For our first Valentine’s Day as a married pair, my husband took me on a surprise trip to Nashville! (I’ll write a separate post on my trip). It was so much fun! We finished off the trip with a visit to the Parthenon (Nashville edition). He’s getting better at taking these OOTD pictures if I do say so myself. Of course, the backdrop was amazing.
Backtracking: I didn’t know our plans so I didn’t really pack much…. at all. Except for the leggings and the handbag (which I had on me), I only packed a nightshirt. Hubs gave me an $80 budget and 45 minute time limit. I ran with it (literally) and stayed well under budget. I picked up this sweater along with the gunmetal chevron ring at Forever 21 in the Opry Mills. I also didn’t pack any comfortable shoes, so I got these boots from a store I don’t remember…. I think I did good for 45 minutes and $80.
It’s been snowing and I’ve had the last three days off of work. I finally worked up the courage to go utside our apartment, dress up, and meet my husband downtown for lunch (he still had work :P). I decided to pair a feminine skirt and sweater with a textured (but slightly-feminine) faux leather jacket. I wanted to keep it neutral and let my lip(color) do most of the talking.
