Hard as Nails

Now that the weather is starting to cool (today’s highs are in the 50s), I’m on the hunt for new nail colors (and coats & sweaters, of course). Though I don’t frequent nail salons as often as I would like, when I get the chance, I usually have my husband help me pick colors.  It’s evident that I’m pretty loyal to OPI (perhaps I’ll look into other brands this year). Anyway, below are the colors Im currently loving.

Fall Nail Colors

 I wore Barefoot in Barcelona on my hands for my September wedding. It’s more of a staple color than a fall shade, but I hope to add it to my collection shortly.


Favorites from Fashion Month

September began with New York Fashion Week and the editors, buyers and bloggers ended the Spring 2014 preview in Paris. I, however, finally skimmed the runway stills from the comfort of my home, to determine my favorite looks and trends for Spring. As usual, I’ll be searching for interesting textures and prints in modern and architectural shapes. Black & White, Monochrome, Mixed Prints and Cutouts are my top picks for Spring 2014’s trends.
