Fall Moodboard: Claret

New York Fashion Week just ended and we’re obsessing over some new colors for this season. Today, we’re shopping local fashions and accessories in Claret, a deep berry red.

Monday Makeover: Nail Envy

Monday Makeover: Nail Envy

We love the idea of nail art; but, it is always a challenge to find something trendy that doesn’t seem too childish. While scrolling through Instagram, we found this great picture from A Piece of Toast. The red and pink geometric design is subtle enough to wear to work without raising eyebrows.

Mastering the art of this type of manicure takes patience and practice. There are a million tutorials out there in cyberspace, but we like this one from Style Motivation. With thirty-eight different options to choose from, there is a design for everyone.


Monday Makeover: Mani/Pedi Combos


Sultry summer weather and wearing opened toed shoes increases the frequency of our visits to the nail salon. In an attempt to cut down on the amount of time we spend staring at a shelf lined with a thousand different polishes, we figured we would do some research. This great post from Total Beauty provides pretty options for your mani/pedi. They also suggest a few basic guidelines when making your selection:

  • Choose shades that flatter your skin tone.
  • Create contrast. Nothing looks more askew than two colors that are only slightly different — it makes your color choice look like an accident.
  • Don’t choose two super-loud colors. Painting neon shades on toes and fingers is too much.

What are your favorite colors to wear together?
