Manicure Monday – Wear Your Pink

Tags

, , , , ,

Rather than share a manicure with you today, I would like to take a second to make mention of a very important cause. Stylers – I dare you for the month of October to pull out your pink polishes and keep them going all month long. Do this to raise awareness during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

bcancerawarenessThere are so many ways to raise awareness, this is just one simple way to do so. You can also visit the National Breast Cancer website to find out other ways you can help here.

Stylers, together we can all make a difference. So pull out those polishes – I dare you to think pink!

Day to Night

My favorite thing about clothing is the versatility. While we usually run to the store when we think we have nothing to wear, what we really should be doing is getting creative. You can make a piece look completely different depending on how you pair and style it. This is one of my day to night transition looks from the other day – keeping the striped black and pink skirt in both looks!

day2nightThe left is an edgy yet work appropriate look. The skirt (Kohls) is worn over a pair of black tights (Nine West) with an acid wash button up (Pac Sun) and black vest (H&M) with black combat boots (TJ Maxx).

In order to dress the look up for a night out I added a pair of knee high socks (Urban Outfitters) and black buttoned heels (Burlington Coat Factory), complete with a graphic crop top (Pac Sun).

Two looks, for two different times of day! So next time you think you’ve run out of things to wear, try switching things up a bit! It’s a great way to test your creativity while keeping your money safely where it should be ;)

Feelin’ 22!

Happy 22nd Birthday to my amazing, handsome and brilliant boyfriend James! Today, he’s the feature on my blog :) Usually he’s behind the scenes, working on computers or solving math problems of some sort and he doesn’t get in front of the camera often. So, while he was looking so. cute. in his faded denim and natural tones, I decided to take him out for a quick fashion shoot!

Not only do I love sharing my fashion with you, but I also love sharing the looks of my fabulous and fashionable friends – including that of the ultimate, Sir Timothy Ludwig. Today Tim is teaching all the men out there how to look MANTASTIC.

IMG_2613Men, here’s an easy way to show of your fashion sense – the matching of the socks and pants. Now, I know how easy it is to reach into your sock drawer and grab one ankle high white sock and a low ankle black sock, but it’s ultimately screaming at the ladies, ‘My sock matching skills reflect my inability to commit.’ So take one from Tim’s book, as he pairs these excellent baby blue-lavender chinos with a dark blue patterned sock. He also effortlessly matches this blue-on-blue combo with a pair of camel brown loafers: a comfortable and classy look. Today – it’s Tim for the win!

Manicure Monday – Sephora ASAP 3D

Hi Stylers – I hope you all had a great weekend! Today on ‘Manicure Monday,’ I am showing off some more nail products from Sephora. For this manicure, I used their ASAP 3D nail lacquer appliques. They come in a variety of designs and are currently marked down on the Sephora website from $15 to $7! They go on just like stickers, are super easy to use and are said to stay on for up to 14 days. The package also includes a small cuticle stick and nail file for easy application.

I received a few of these sticker sets for my birthday, so I was excited to give them a try and see how they worked – and I was quite impressed. This particular sticker set is called ‘Suspended.’stickers1

Here is the final look:nails2Shop this ASAP 3D nail applique and others now on Sephora.com!

Combat boots and jeans sound like a pretty casual pairing right? Well, I can’t say that’s always true!

With the right pair of jeans, you can really dress those shoes with the casual-rep up. Today’s post gives you two outfits – and two pairs of jeans that are the perfect combination of comfortable and dressy for the combat boot. It also features a few new items from H&M that are great choices for the fast-approaching Fall season!

22nd Birthday Recap

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

A week ago today I turned 22! And finally I am getting a chance to share my outfits from the week with you! Last Saturday, a birthday party was thrown at my apartment with my closest friends. The theme was black and white so only I was dressed in color – a maroon romper to be exact! I found the romper in Charlotte Russe and there was only a size large left, but I loved it so much I got it anyway – because if there is anything you can get away with in a bigger size it’s a romper.

Here is my the look from my Birthday party:

bdayparty2bdaypartyThe two gold bands around the neck were part of the romper – an aspect I loved! Paired with gold jewelry and tan crochet wedges from Marshalls. See my birthday manicure and jewelry in last week’s Manicure Monday post!

On the day of my actual birthday, my best friends round up again for a fancy birthday dinner at an Italian restaurant called Mario’s. This time I was the one dressed in black and white, with straight hair and a polka dot three tiered dress – one of my favorite types of clothing.

I would say it was a birthday success! I ended up having a great week thanks to all of my wonderful friends! I love you all!

Manicure Monday – Textured Neon

My friends and family must really know me because for my birthday this year, my sister and one of my best friends got me basically the same thing: a bunch of nail polishes and nail stickers from Sephora! Which means I am veryyy excited for upcoming Manicure Monday’s! :)

Today’s post features two Formula X nail polishes from my friend Amanda and my sister Cassie. I used the neon yellow-green from Amanda titled Zap (right) as the base coat and the black textured polish from Cassie called Blast Off (left) on top.

The textured polish is similar to a glitter, as it consists of a variety of speck shapes that when applied to the nail create a paint splattered look. Here it is, today’s manicure titled Textured Neon:

Something fun and bright to add pazazz to any outfit!
