Mani Monday – Blood Orange Edition

Fall has me easing into darker nail color.  This orangey-red is a new favorite.  I kept it light with a slice of blood orange.  I was surprised at just how neutral this color turned out to be.

The manicure and nail art are by Olive & June.  The color is “Flashed” by Essie Gel Couture.

Items featured in the photos include:

Tweed Shoes


Love Shirt

Gucci Mule


Gucci bag

Happy Monday!



Clutching my Heart

I have been building my collection of clutches for a while and recently added acrylic dividers (similar here) to my closet to make my collection easier to see and access.


My son was particularly helpful with this project and kept pulling the J. Crew silver one with the perforated hearts (pictured above) and telling me that I needed to do a Valentine’s post.  It got me thinking that Valentine’s themed clutches work year round.  Who doesn’t want to carry a heart around or liven up an outfit with a pop of pink or red?

I recently ordered three (!) from Parker Thatch as a Valentine gift to myself.  They have an amazing selection and you can even add a love letter to them. They arrived with a lovely note.

Mani Monday -Black Stripes Edition

2017 is off to a stripe-y start. It is no secret that I love stripes.  Last week was a week of stripes.  For this week’s mani, I am wearing black for the first time with negative space stripes.

The manicure and nail art are by Olive & June.  The color is “Black Pool” by CND Vinylux.

Happy Monday!

PS – How cute are the Gucci Bee Loafers?
