Orange You Glad?

For this nail art post, I tried something a little different: a simple stripe design with a mood-boosting color palate. The peach, orange, and gold color combination really put me in a good mood for the days I wore this nail art. I am a big believer that the colors you wear can affect how you feel.

What do you think of this nail design?

It's on in Neon

Neon colors were a big trend this summer. Wearing them can be really fun and give you a definite energy boost, but the trend can also go horribly wrong. One rule about pulling off the neon look is to pair it with neutrals. There are two ways to do this. If you really want your neon color to pop, pair it with a black or white neutral, as I did in this outfit. The strong contrast highlights the color (literally). If you'd like to tone down your neon, pair it with a more natural neutral, like brown, tan, or gray. This combination allows the neutral to complement the neon color for the perfect balance.

Did you rock neon colors this summer?

Short Story

Denim shorts are a wardrobe essential that never go out of style. They can be worn in summer with a tank top and shorts, as well as in winter with tights and a blazer. They come in all shapes and sizes: ripped, cuffed, faded, short, long, dark, light--the list goes on and on. Here I wore a very simple outfit, a white tank top with cuffed denim shorts, perfect for the heat that comes at the end of summer. A unique belt and pretty sandals add some life to the look.

How do you like to wear your denim shorts?
