I sort of planned my outfit around my Accessory Concierge earrings. Oh, stop laughing at me; I bet you've done something like that before! :) I love these statement earrings and figured a simple blush dress would work with it perfectly. I may have gone overboard with accessories but I kind of like it!
I am in love with this gorgeous, floral pattern and was planning on wearing this dress over Passover but it SNOWED so I ended up wearing something warmer. I'm hoping the second half of Passover warms up because I want to wear this beauty already! I really love Eliza J dresses (remember my cobalt blue dress?) and I have my eye on this mint green maxi dress!
I haven't done a mani roundup in a while so I wanted to share my latest manicures with you! I've been on a pastel kick lately even though it feels like winter. I've been loving mint greens especially. And as most of you know, I do not do these myself. I am completely unskilled when it comes to nail art (and even a basic polish job) so I leave it up to the professionals. :)
Which is your favorite?
This is what I'm wearing right now and it's gel polish (it's been a little over a week and not a single chip!). A very close mint green polish is the new Essie polish, Fashion Playground. Personally, I feel like you need 3 coats for best results- but it's so pretty and worth the extra drying time! Mint Candy Apple is another mint that's slightly more blue and brighter.
I love the bows! This pink color needs 3-4 coats to make it opaque but it ends up being really pretty if you take the extra time to do it. I only used 1 or 2 coats here because I wanted the mint green bows to pop so it's a little too sheer for my taste. I think it's Essie No Baggage Please. And the mint green is again, Essie Fashion Playground.
I've been following the incredibly talented Mia of Super Fly Nails on instagram for a while. When she told me she was coming to NYC for a few days, I grabbed the opportunity to get a manicure by her and these were the results. I'm completely in love with the mix of watercolor and negative space and love her creativity!
If I were to be honest, I've never ever worn heels to work (when I wear this outfit to work, it's usually with these or even these but I wishhhhh they were these). If I wore heels to work, I'd be the only therapist wearing them. I wouldn't care too much about that but the truth is, it's more that I like to be comfortable. Actually, the only time I wear heels is for a wedding, party, or holiday. I love when my friends are like, "these heels are soooo comfortable, really!" Lies! :)
I think this is the first time you're seeing my Michael Kors bag that I got for Chanukah. I love it and the second photo is one of my most liked photos on my instagram so y'all seem to like it too! :) I don't blame you, it's such a great, sleek classic and of course it has crossbody straps which is my number one criteria when it comes to buying handbags. I also love my C.Wonder heels with the glittery cap-toe and I can't believe they're my first pair of navy heels; I have so many outfits that go with them! Ann Taylor is one of my favorite stores for work attire. They have such a great petite selection which really helps with having things fit me right without needing tailoring. If you're tall, they have a great tall selection as well.
I'll never be Très Over It when it comes to graphic sweaters ( see me in my Creme de la Creme, Ooh La La, Celfie, and Holy Chic sweaters)! Looking back at my graphic print tops, I seem to like pairing them with sequins. I guess it's because I find it an easy way to make sequins appropriate for day.... and also, if you haven't noticed, I kind of like sequins. Yeah, I'm kind of hard to read sometimes. :)
For my friends celebrating Passover, have a very happy Passover and go easy on the matzah!
Statement necklaces and earrings are such an easy way to make a plain/simple outfit a little more interesting. A colorful piece can make an outfit pop and really change the way the whole outfit looks. There's no reason to have to spend a lot of money when there are so many fun and affordable pieces out there. I personally love Jeweliq (most of their pieces are under $25!) and Accessory Concierge for fun but affordable jewelry and no, this isn't a sponsored post; I genuinely love their jewelry!
For some strange reason, the background of the collage is a yucky gray and I can't seem to figure out why it isn't white so I apologize!
Yay for the second round of The Beauty Buffs! The theme is royal blue and I may have stretched a bit with this post (this post would've been perfect) but hey, it's all a matter of interpretation! Scroll down to the bottom of the post to see how the rest of the Beauty Buff gals interpreted the royal blue theme as well as links to a few of my favorite royal blue items.
