Jacket: H&M. Top: Jacob. Skirt: Zara. Handbag: Gucci. Shoes: Boutique 9. Necklace: Stella & Dot. Watch: Michael Kors. Bracelets: Forever 21 small chains, BCBG large chains, J.Crew triple bangs. Rings: Kate Spade, Ardene. Nail Polish: H&M.  Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

I’m currently loving all things yellow, so I thought I would mix it up and try a sunny nail polish.  I’m usually drawn to light pinks and neutrals, as they are easy to apply and match with everything, but I stepped a little out of my comfort zone with this bright polish.  I’m not convinced that it’s a good look for me, although I do like it with this outfit.  I felt a little like a teenager who painted her nails with actual paint during art class.  Bright nails might be one of those looks I love on others, but not on me.  Do you tend to stick to “match with everything” nail polish colours, or are you more adventurous when it comes to your nails?

    it depends on my mood but i’m usually pretty basic when it comes to my nails, especially when I’m busy haha. Love the draping on your skirt 🙂

    I’ve totally been into yellow nails (or yellow, in general) lately as well. I have a very similar nail color to the one you’re wearing and I love it so much and people always compliment the color.

    You’re looking chic, as always! 🙂

      Thanks Victoria! I went shopping on my lunch, and two sales clerks said “Woah, that’s bright!”. I did not get the feeling that was a compliment. 🙂 I’ll definitely try it again though.

    Your wrap skirt is gorgeous!! I swear, Zara has the best skirts and heels! Love the yellow jacket and your yellow nails. I’m partial to it because yellow is my favorite color. 🙂 Thanks so much for visiting my blog! <3

      Thanks Toni! I agree, Zara has great skirts and shoes! Unfortunately for me (but good for my wallet), their shoes usually don’t fit me well.

      Thanks so much Patricia! I’m so sorry, but I don’t have the exact information on these shoes. I bought them in NYC a few weeks ago, and did not keep the box. What I can tell you is that I bought them at Macy’s on 34th street in NYC (phone # 212-695-4400), and that they were brand new stock, so chances are they will still have them. I’ve looked online also, but can’t find them. If I do come across more information, I will definitely let you know.

    I actually love the yellow nails, but I do love bright nail polish colors. And I also love the yellow jacket on yellow top. I tend to stray away from matching too much but this look really makes me rethink that.

      Thanks Clare! I bought it in the Spring, so I’m not sure if they still have it. It’s from their TRF line. You might be able to find it on sale right now.

    That’s a nice skirt. I find Boutique 9’s shoes are great. Do you find it comfy?

    • Jenny
      July 26, 2012

      Thanks so much! YES, Boutique 9 is very comfortable! I LOVE Nine West pumps, and wear them all of the time because they are sooo comfortable. I saw these from Boutique 9 (made by Nine West) and loved the colour, so gave them a shot. They fit the exact same as my Nine West’s and are just as comfy!

    Great drape and print on the skirt Jenny! I like yellow on you and I’ve been trying to wear that color more too. It all depends on the shade right?! I actually like the nail polish on you but I understand where you’re coming from. I tend to lean towards more “wearable” colors too mainly due to work constrictions but I do like bright colors!

    Heart your skirt. When I remember to paint my nails I always choose a color that will go with most of what I intend to wear for the week.

    • Jenny
      July 27, 2012

      That’s a good idea. That’s also why I usually stick to neutral colours on my nails! Thanks Inez!
