OPI Danke-Shiny Red Perfection!




Behold, the newest polish in my arsenal: OPI Danke-Shiny Red! This is a perfect nail polish. It is opaque in ONE COAT. The finish GLOWS. The color is rich and metallic. It is flattering on my skin. A perfect Fall and Winter red. It stands alone, outshining the reddest Coca-Cola can and the most metallic Mini Cooper steering wheel.

I was hoping it was a dupe for OPI's Red-y To Strike! from Halloween 2008, but this is not as warm as that red, though it shares the same finish and opacity.

The Greatest Shoe Story Ever Told




t-shirt by Splendid, Current/Elliott boyfriend jeans, shoes by Loeffler Randall, Swatch watch, OPI Big Apple Red polish

Guys, guys, guys, you are not going to believe the shoe story I have for you today. Remember this post, where I hopelessly wished I could afford these Loeffler Randall sandals? I said they were worthy of saving up for, but I never did. And good thing: these amazing shoes, in my size, went up for flash sale at the week before last. The price? Would you believe 90% off, or $35? No saving required. (and they shipped free too). A story with a happy ending.

Navy and Pink Combo with Kitten



t-shirt by Vince, jeans from ASOS, necklace from Etsy, Swatch watch, shoes from The Walking Company, Rimmel London Steel Grey nail polish

Anyone want a calico/tortie 5 month old kitten? This kitten "Sweetie" is one of my latest rescues.

Pink jeans I find difficult to build outfits around, but white works, or in this case, navy blue. I love Vince t-shirts, they are so soft and flattering! Have a wonderful weekend, my friends!

My Post-Labor Day Whites


top from Madewell, I.N.C. linen pants from Macy's, t-shirt by Splendid, Nixon watch

It's summer until the temperatures drop! Here are two new items in my wardrobe: a bright and cool linen top paired with linen pants. My husband got me the pants for our anniversary (four years is linen).

My Chambray Shirt




Soft-wash denim shirt from Banana Republic, crochet skirt from Wet Seal (old), Naturalizer sandals, Nixon watch

I have been looking for a chambray shirt for a while now. Of course, I have my husband's chambray, but I wanted something a little more fitted. After comparing shirts from Isabella Oliver, J. Crew, and Madewell, I went with this one from Banana Republic. I wanted the denim to be darker and bluer, not a faded wash, because it made the shirt dressier and work-appropriate.

Here I wore it to church with the crochet skirt and these great sandals.

Outfit Post and New Watch



sundrenched sweatshirt from J. Crew, shorts by Polo Ralph Lauren, oxfords by Coconuts, Nixon Vega watch in Tortise

Happy September! I told you I'd be back, and I have a lot to share, so please keep coming by! Up first, a late-summer outfit and my new tortiseshell Nixon Vega watch. At first, I thought this watch was too big for me, and a little obnoxious. But I like to push myself and try things out, and this watch is growing on me. It's my all-fall accessory, here on out.
