My Favorite Essie Colors For Summertime!

It’s no lie when I say I’m addicted to nail polish..especially Essie. I have over 200 bottles of nail polish, which may seem weird..but to me it’s like having my own salon in my bedroom! My favorite season for nail polish colors is summertime. It makes my fingers feel so bright and happy..very reassuring (crazy to think that nail polish could make someone feel that way–but it does).

I am going to admit that I was very shocked to see how dark Essie’s Summer 2014 collection was..granted they just did the Neon 2014 collection which I ADORE, but the one thing that drives me crazy about the neons is having to put the white under it. I love wearing white alone though!  Anyways, I loved two of the colors for summer out of the collection..the rest reminded me of fall!

So I figured I’d share with y’all my personal favorites to wear on my fingers and toes during summer

For me, it’s summertime, not springtime but summertime and I’m kicking it off with neons and prints. I’m in love with these bright prints BUT, I also having been drooling over black tulle skirts for sometime now and I have yet to bite the bullet and make my purchase on one. I have also finally found a pair of rockstud sandals that don’t cost $600+ and ones that still look like they are pretty legit. Also, if you haven’t heard of Anna Beck yet, you are now welcome! She makes ADORABLE bracelets, rings, necklaces, and more that are PERFECT for summertime and reasonably priced!
What are you loving this month?

These jeans are one of my favorite purchases from last years Lilly Pulitzer Summer Collection!  They are so much fun and make me so happy whenever I wear them (yes, a pair of pants can make me that happy). I am even thinking about wearing them for Easter, but I think I’ll probably change my mind and wear a dress. Neons are always in for summertime so start looking for your favorite neon look! Whether it’s a pair of jeans, a bikini, or nail polish you should be rocking neon this summer.



Who says you can’t wear chartreuse in the winter?

I have been in love with this Tibi dress since the day I saw it hanging in Sassy Boutique! I knew I had to have it, and I’ve been dying to wear it! It’s absolutely adorable and the bright chartreuse makes you feel so much happier in the winter.

Only 3 more days until I head to might be seeing a repeat of this dress because I love it so much!
