sailboats & fiery sunsets.


F21 cropped cardigan | River Island cropped tee with tie front | Asos prom skirt | Jeffrey Campbell Juanita Fab wedges | Straw clutch courtesy of Koby's mom | China Glaze nail lacquer in Life Preserver

Today was the beginning of my four day weekend. One word to describe it? Glorious. It's been awhile since I've enjoyed a long weekend. Though it's going to be stock full of thunderstorms and high winds (thus this blustery photo shoot) I don't seem to mind being able to get the time to relax.

I've always been enamored with the whimsical and playful look of nautical motifs. With brights a big hit this season, I decided to blend the two themes. The bright orange hues of the skirt and nail lacquer, paired with the navy colors of the cardigan and wedges, I thought made a perfect duo. I don't normally like entire collections of nail polishes. Each of the colors in the China Glaze Anchors Away collection, however, are extraordinary and totally eye candy. Like the orange nail lacquer that is aptly titled Life Preserver which my nails are decked out in this post. Read more about the China Glaze Anchors Away collection here.

I just added another pair of shoes to my Jeffrey Campbell collection. Say "ahoy mate" to my Jeffrey Campbell Juanita Fab wedges. I totally ogled the Juanita wedges (checkered pattern) when they made their debut on e-commerce sites, but much to my dismay my size was sold out in a flash moment. However, it's sailor sister arrived, the Juanita Fab, and I was so excited to get my hands on them. They arrived and were way too small in comparison to normal Jeffrey Campbell sizing. So my sweetheart of a sister, Jennifer, who has an extensive Jeffrey Campbell shoe collection herself, swapped me out for her pair, which was one size up. I couldn't be more ecstatic. Hopefully my other Jeffrey Campbell shoes won't feel replaced and think that they have to walk the plank. 

P.S. Remember to enter the $80 giveaway I am hosting towards your very own pair of designer shoes! (Think D&G, Dior, See by Chloe, Sam Edelman, etc.)
