Dark Lipstick – It always seems like colors are much more vibrant in the fall. I love wearing a deep red or medium purple lipstick to mimic that.

Rich Nail Polishes – Again, this is inspired by the change in colors that come with the season. I love wearing reds, purples, golds, and oranges this time of year.

Scarves – The evenings and the mornings are chilly this time of year, making scarves super cozy. Not to mention a fabulous fashion statement!

Headbands – I actually wear these all year round, but I just love the way they look with a Dutch or fishtail braid. When I think of fall hair, I think of this pairing.

Faded Glory Wedges

Dark Wedges – Again, I love wedges all year round, but it’s fun to break out the darker colors around the colder season. Paring this with a pair of jeans or a long skirt is my fav!

Fedoras! – This one is pretty specific. You either like them or you don’t. I like wearing them in the summer, but find it easier to wear them in the fall. Not to mention the dark colors of the ones I have go better with the darker, richer colors of fall.

Slippers are Beach Feet.

Slippers – With the air getting colder in the morning and night, slippers are the perfect accompaniment to my bedside necessities.

Hoodie is Champion Elite.

A Hoodie – I love my hoodies oversized so that I can throw it over whatever I am wearing and snuggle into it. Since the weather isn’t quite cold enough for a proper coat, one of these is perfect.

Summer Nails Look

July is in full swing, and the summer parties are still going strong. Having fun nails is the perfect way to complete a look. Here is an easy look that will make a splash at the next backyard barbeque:

The first step is to file your nails, of course!

Who says that soaking your nails can only be done at the salon or with expensive gadgets and scrubs. I am soaking mine in a DIY nail whitener. It is inexpensive and only has three common ingredients. Take a small bowl and fill it about half-way up with warm water. Add 2 Tablespoon of Hydrogen Peroxide and 2 Teaspoons of baking soda. Mix them well and soak each hand for several minutes.

Once the nails are done soaking, rinse them off and apply any lotion or hand cream.

For this look, I am using Sinful Colors: Professionals Soul Mate and L.A. Colors: Color Craze Meadow.

Paint all of the nails except the ring fingers with Soul Mate.

Once dried, paint the remaining two nails with Meadow. (Note: L.A. Colors: Color Craze Sea Foam and Beach Babe are very similar to this one.)

The contrasting colors will make them stand out more while their pastel nature prevents them from clashing. (Hint: If the nail polish is hard to remove, pour the remover into a small sauce dish and soak the nails for a few minutes before wiping them.)
