Cool Blue

“You are not one of those people now?” said my husband at dinner.  “Yes, she is.  She wore them the whole time in the grocery store.” said my son.  I love my new blue glasses for many reasons.  My love of the color blue is no secret.  They also provide a cooling shade to the sun that is different from any other pair of sunglasses I have and they manage not to be too dark inside.  So rather than switching to my clear glasses or putting them on my head (thus stretching them out) and squinting in the grocery store, I can keep them on.  Now I am that person.  I get why people keep their glasses on inside. Besides I will take the world in a cool blue hue anytime, especially in harsh lighting.

My spring uniform is in full swing.  I am mixing and matching blazers and fun tees with a variety of clutches and denim (or colored denim).  I have gotten so much wear out of these blush velvet heels from a couple of years ago (I have linked several great options below).

Mani Monday – Blues Edition

Fun weekends sometimes lead to Monday Blues.  Not this week.  I was informed that this Mother’s Day week.  I came home after a Saturday night out with friends to balloons, flowers, gifts, chocolates and the sweetest notes and cards.  I tried to hold off opening anything until Mother’s Day,  but my son insisted yesterday.  It is going to be a great week! My favorite gift is this new coffee mug. I will be drinking my morning cup with a big smile.

The manicure and nail art are by Olive & June.  The colors are “Surrounded by Studs” and “First View” by Essie Gel Couture.

Items in the photos include:

Striped Embroidered Fable Top

Butterfly Dress

Happy Monday!

Mani Friday – Blue Camo Edition

My six year old loves camouflage, especially shorts and pants and not just the typical green, but blues as well.  He has worn various versions of the pants and shorts for about two years.  He likes to do his own pattern mixing with stripes and other colors.  Every week he makes suggestions for my nail art that usually revolve around cars.  It is rare that he is that happy with my choice.  He really liked this week’s blue camo nail art.  He also asked me if I was trying to have my nails blend in with my clothes.  I will say the camo is forgiving with the dreaded and inevitable chip.

The main color is my favorite “Creekside” by Vinylux combined with “Indigo Frock” and “Water Park” also by Vinylux.  The nail art and manicure are by Olive & June.

Happy Friday!
