+ OPI Austin-tatious + Essie Marshmallow + NCLA Red, White & You + M.A.C x Nasty Gal Flaming Rose (on sale!) +

I’ve been having lots of fun with my nails lately and wanted to share this fun patriotic look I did for Independence Day! I bought this really fun nail polish by NCLA and love the royal/baby blue, red/pink, and silver star situation. Such a great combo! I paired it with the most perfect red ever that I forgot I even owned, M.A.C x Nasty Gal’s Flaming Rose, and this fun glittery OPI from an old collection. I have so much nail polish that I didn’t even know I owned Essie’s Marshmallow, haha!

Have a happy 4th of July!

+ For Love & Lemons and UO Tropical Leaf Dress + Miista Siri (sold out, other color) + Forever 21 Longline Crescent Pendant Necklace +

Do you ever get that feeling that you absolutely need a piece and can’t live without it? I saw this FL&L dress on Rumi Neely before even knowing it was from my favorite brand, and knew I had to hunt it down and find it. I’m all about large florals, particularly of the tropical variety and, of course, always into cute / sexy cutouts. My Miista Siri pumps were a PERFECT match, with green, blue, and yellow shades on the perspex heel.

What I love the most about this For Love and Lemons dress is how casual and every day it is. I guess its my fault for usually picking up dressier pieces so maybe I have to reevaluate some of my purchases and get more fun but still relaxed. Would love to wear this on Lincoln road in Miami, drinking mimosas at a cute brunch with friends.

Anyway, I wore this for PVD Lady Project‘s Summer Guide Launch Party. Fun little outing on a beautiful terrace in the Biltmore Hotel. It was an amazing (but chilly) event filled with positive messages and great women that I love being in the same network with. So excited to attend more events for The Lady Project this summer!

What My Nails Are Doing

+ (clockwise) Urban Outfitters Classics Collection Nail Polish in Calabunga (sold out) + Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear (Sold out, Similar) + American Apparel Nail Polish in Angeline (Sold Out) + American Apparel Nail Polish in Coney Island + American Apparel Nail Polish in Neon Pink +

A long time ago I used to post my current nails on the blog and I’ve been missing it! While I’m not so into crazy nail art anymore, I still love something fun to look at every now and then. I bought this super awesome nail polish from Urban Outfitters, originally pictured as a white base with blue, pink, green, and yellow glitter, but came with a light pink base instead. I didn’t mind, and decided I wanted to pull some out some of the colors and incorporate into the rest of my nails. This time around I chose shades of pink.

Excited to share more of my what my nails are doing with you!
