Summer time is for bright nails, sun dresses, and cocktails on the patio. Who is with me?
I love to use the summer as a time to be creative with my nails. It is a way to add color to an otherwise boring outfit. It is also a way to express yourself creatively. Manicures and pedicures are great, but sometimes it is fun to do your own at home. In the summer I tend to go with bright colors, such as this one, and this one. If you follow me on social media you know my favorite color to wear at anytime of the year is this one here. What are your go to nail colors? Shop the rest of mine below.

Happy Saturday ! How was your week? Mine was good but I wish it actually felt like Spring not like Fall. Ugh! This is why I am day dreaming about still being in the Palm Desert, where I shot this look below. The Palm Desert is beautiful. If you have never been you should definitely put it on you bucket list, but just not in the dead of summer because it gets hot. Real Hot!
This look is one of my favorites. It was great to roam to the shops of El Paseo, the Rodeo Dr. of the Palm Desert. I wore white denim skinny jeans (found here) and paired it with a button up polk a dot shirt (similar here and here). I accessorized the outfit with Kendra Scott Jewelry (earrings here, necklace here), a leopard belt that I think goes with everything (here), this hunter green cross body (similar here and here), and these tan sandals that are sure to be on rotation all summer (here). I am such a fan of mixing patterns such a I did with the polk a dots and leopard because it adds a little personal style to an outfit. The watch I am wearing is from Wristology, website here. They have great watches for women. All different styles and colors. Use code: AA20 for 20% off and free shipping.

Who is ready for Spring? I definitely am. I cannot wait for the days of cool mornings and warm even hot afternoons and evenings. In the spring and summer I love to wear dresses.
They are the easiest thing to put on and can literally be worn anywhere. To work, church, a wedding and out with friends. Since spring and summer are big time wedding seasons I put together a look I plan on wearing to an upcoming wedding this summer.
I love this floral dress (similar here
, and here
). It is great for an indoor or outdoor wedding. I paired it with a white blazer (found here
). Blazers are awesome for coverups for sleeveless dresses especially for outdoor or evening wedding. I literally have 6-8 blazers because they are a great compliment to almost any outfit. I accessorized this outfit with Kendra Scott earrings (here
) and necklace (here)
Watch is from Wristology (found here
), use code: AA20 for 20% off of any watch. I paired my Chloé ‘Marcie’ satchel (here
) and wedges (favorites here
) to finish the look. What is your favorite wedding look? Shop my look below. Hope you enjoy!
It has been awhile since I have done a Insta Roundup so today I am rounding up a couple of my most popular Instagram outfits from the past couple weeks with outfit details below.
Hope you enjoy!
There is nothing like a good blazer. Can I get an Amen! Adding a blazer to any outfit can add a pop of color and even take your outfit to the next level. I have multiples in my closet of all different colors.
Blazers go great with everything from jeans, to dress pants, to skirts or dresses. I chose to pair this red blazer (a similar one can be found here), with black leggings (found here), and a black and white stripped ruffled shirt (similar here). I accessorized with snake skin heels (similar here), this popular leopard clutch (found here), and gold jewelry (earrings here, neckless here, and bracelet here). The watch is from Wristology (found here). Use code: AA20 to get 20% off of any watch. I completed the look with a red lip (my favorite one can be found here).
Did you know that March 8 is International Women’s Day? Today we are celebrating 40 years of liberation from a time when women did not have a choice to wear what they wanted in public, especially pants and a blazer. So today I am wearing my blazer and pants. You will also see all over your social media other women proudly wearing their blazers to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. You should definitely show your support by throwing on a blazer and hastaging your pictures with #IWD2016, #PledgeforParity, and #Right2SuitUp.
Below I have linked similar looks. Hope you enjoy! And Happy International Women’s Day!
