Mani Monday – Giraffe Edition

I am frequently asked where I come up with my nail art ideas.  Some weeks I know exactly what I want and it’s tied to an event or holiday.  Sometimes I am inspired by nail art that I see on Instagram.  More often I am inspired by fashion and what am wearing that day.  It is always a collaboration with the talented staff at Olive & June.  This Drake’s for J. Crew shirt (that I recently scored on super sale) served as inspiration this week. Besides, it was another chance to wear my favorite navy polish by Chanel.

The manicure and nail art are by Olive & June.  The colors are “Mariniere” by Chanel, “Salmon Run” by CND Vinylux and “Alpine Snow” by OPI.

Items featured in the photos include:

Drake’s for J. Crew Giraffe Print Bell Sleeve Top

J. Crew Western Shirt

Equipment Animal Print Blouse (on sale!)

Tod’s Loafers

J. Crew Crinkle Gingham Boy Shirt

LOEWE “see u later” clutch

Happy Monday!



Peace, Love and Denim

My love of denim and chambray is no secret.  I have lost count of the number of times I have worn my J. Crew Western Chambray shirt that I bought two years ago (and it still looks great).  J. Crew just came out with a new Western Chambray Shirt with snaps in a vintage indigo wash and I knew immediately it was a must have.  I also picked up another pair of Lookout high rise jeans.  I doubled down on denim for lunch with my mom at Flower Child in Del Mar.  I love the bright decor and the menu options make it easy for me to stick to my new regime.

I styled my new denim pieces with fringe boots by Maison de Talons, J. Crew Jane sunglasses, a J. Crew monogrammed pouch and a J. Crew bandana in a Drake’s print.

Here are three more looks with my other Western Chambray Shirt (which is on sale!) : Denim on Denim, Falling into Neutral, and Beam Me Up.

Pinking into Fall

I love seeing fall clothes in the stores, but it is still summer.  We are enjoying the last week of summer with a getaway and lots of beach time.  J. Crew’s recent roll out with all the pink is amazing.  The Drake’s prints are so beautiful.  You can read more about their history and the process here.  I continue to enjoy the challenge to wear pink.  I love this Drake’s shirt with pops of pink in the cardigan and my new J. Crew Jane sunglasses. The white denim pencil skirt still makes it feel summery.
