Fall Nail Color Favorites!

21 Nov

I love beautiful rich dark shades for fall and winter and thought I’d share my favorites colors with you.  They are both by Essie, but most polish companies make these shades or similar shades. I do favor Essie when it comes to darker shades because their formulas are super thick and don’t streak.

Stylenomics is a deep green shade.

Carry On is a dark deep burgundy wine shade.

Fall’s Must Have Hat Under $20

4 Nov

Fedoras are a Fall must have, I wear them year round but am particularly fond of them during the cooler seasons. Fedoras work on everyone, even if you think you’re not a hat person. Fedoras can pretty much be worn with any hairstyle, I wear mine with my hair down, with a side braid and with a low bun.  If you love fedoras, you’ll love my selections below, all under $20 of course. And at these prices, even if you’re not a hat person, now’s the time to step out of your comfort zone and get your first fedora. It’ll look great on you, I promise:)

Look For Less: Lace Up Heels!

6 Oct

Hi everyone,  I’m pretty excited about this look for less post because I’m so into lace up shoes right now. Lace up flats are all the rage and these are pretty much the “heel” version of them. Many of my look for less posts feature something super expensive and a similar option for waaaaaaay less. This time my “expensive” option is actually mid priced, BUT I know $120 for heels is a lot to spend if you’re on a budget…..soooooo I found a similar pair priced at $35. If you can afford the $120 option- great! If not……I got you girl!

Note: Both of these heels come in a variety of colors. Click links below to shop.

The Perfect Party Dress!

22 Sep

Every Holiday season I put together a post with a selection of Holiday party dresses to shop. That post is published in early November to give everyone time to shop for the holiday parties they’ll be attending. This year I will do that holiday dress post as planned BUT I’ve stumbled across a dress that I simply can’t wait until November to share. This dress is so pretty. It’s a combination of the perfect length, material and design. The dress fits petite to curvy body types. The lace detail is gorgeous and the cutout back is sexy while remaining very classy. it comes in a variety of colors and is priced under $100. This is a great dress to grab now for the holiday season ahead or for upcoming weddings you will attend. This is a must have dress for all occasions.

Lace cutout back dress $98 available exclusively at Nordstrom.

My Favorite Summer to Fall Transition Look.

16 Sep

Here in California, seasons can be tricky because we don’t really have any. September cools down somewhat but overall we  experience an endless Summer while the rest of the country is quickly cooling down. This is when my favorite end of summer look comes into play- Good ol’ blue jeans and a white shirt! (T- shirt or button up) I wear this outfit with or without a white blazer and with shoes ranging from white chucks to strappy heels. It really is the perfect end of summer look when it’s just cool enough to bust out your jeans, but not cool enough for rich colors, textures or Fall layers.

Find inspiration below and check out Yourstylejourney on Instagram to see how I styled my personal blue jeans & white T look.
