Kendra Scott earrings

My first pair of Kendra Scott earrings was on sale at Nordstrom. However, emerald is the only color left for $31.20.

I like them but they are heavy or maybe I have weak ear lopes. The quality is great and it’s the perfect accessory to dress up an outfit.
I am sad it didn’t come with the Kendra Scott jewelry bag.

J.Crew Scallop dress – four ways

My favorite dress is now restocked at J.crew factory. It’s available in red or navy. This season’s style is a little different than the one I have from last year. The neckline is higher and the back drops lower. Nonetheless, it’s a classic, timeless style that you can find any occasion to wear it. I’m going to style it four ways I would wear this dress inspire some ideas on where and how to wear this dress. (And to justify your purchase)

1) A night out: Blazer
I used a bold color to make the outfit stand out. The gold accents really compliments the pink and balances the black.

Blazer: Forever21 | Clutch: Lilly pulitzer | Shoes: Jack Rogers | Necklace: Forever21

2) Work: Belt
This look is sophisticated for work depending on your occupation. I would wear this to maybe a special event at work since I’m in a business casual environment. The length of this dress can be tricky especially if you have long legs. I’m only 5’3 so it’s easier for me to get away with it.

Belt: H&M | Clutch: Tory Burch | Shoes: Express

3) Date night: Simple accessories
This is for a dinner in the city. I don’t wear heels but this would be the perfect occasion to wear nude heels. A statement necklace and a bright clutch can make this simple outfit a nice date night.

Necklace: Forever21 | Clutch: ASOS | Flats: J.crew Factory

4) Casual day: Button down shirt

So I’ve seen this people wear a classic powder blue shirt on the inside on the dress but I’m not sure how I feel about it. I wanted pattern and gingham is perfect but even a chambray shirt will work too. This is perfect for a shopping day, a day date, or brunch with your friends.

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel nail polish review

Gel polish without going to the salon? It sounds too good to be true considering I can’t get my polish to last for three days. I bought the set with the polish and top coat for under $20. See below to find out if it lasted up* to 14 days.

I didn’t wait to see what it would look like on the 14th day. I had to get rid of it before it got worse. So maybe the polish didn’t last for 14 days but it did last longer than your typical polish. It stayed shiny and the color didn’t fade. I do recommend buying this along with the top coat. I definitely see the value in getting gel nails at the salon but this works if you’re too busy to go.

Thanks for reading!
