New York Fashion Week

Now that New York Fashion week is over, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite looks. Some of the trends I noticed while watching the live streaming of the shows include fur, leather, gold belts, turtle necks, deep colors, pattern, gloves, color blocking, and lots of glitz. *all pictures below are via WWD.com

Pink and Green

I really love pink and green together. So much in fact that it was our wedding colors. I wore this jacket before in this post and these shoes in this post. I’ve been in love with these shoes ever since I got them a few months ago, and I’m really loving the studs on them and the bag.

I’m also very excited to be featured on IFB’s ‘Links A La Mode’ this week. Check it out here!

How To: Polka Dot Nails

I posted this picture on Friday and got a lot of compliments which really made my day. I’ve done this ‘how to’ post so you can do polka dot nails at home! It’s very easy and more affordable than going to get your nails done at a salon.

What you need: Any 2 colors of your choice and a bobby pin.

Step 1: Apply 2 coats of your base color. I used Revlon’s ‘electric pink’ which is a really beautiful color.

Step 2: Take your bobby pin and dip it into the nail polish to add polka dots over all of your nails. I used a white nail polish by Sinful Colors. The size and shape of the polka dots are more consistent when using a bobby pin instead of a brush.

 Let me know if you try it!

Bright Blue Jeans

I’ve been obsessed with colored denim lately which you can see in this post. In addition to my red pair and blue pair I can’t wait to also purchase these from H&M. Colored denim is a great way to make an outfit more bold and exciting. I wore this outfit over the weekend to lunch and to do some shopping.

Shirt and jeans: Old Navy

Scarf: American Eagle

Shoes: Target

Bag and earrings: Clothes Hound

Watch: Michael Kors

Bracelet: Handpicked
