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?

 

 

Working for the Weekend

Dress: H&M. Bag: Coach. Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell. Belt: Wilfred at Aritzia. Watch: Michael Kors. Rings: Kate Spade, Arden. Bracelets: Henri Bendel, J. Crew, Forever 21. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

If you’re a regular Crazy Style Love reader (I sincerely thank you), I’m sure you’ve noticed that I usually post my 9 to 5 outifts.  I think I’ll try to show a few of my off-hours looks too.  This is a typical summer weekend look for me: a lightweight dress or tank & skirt, with wedge sandals or flats (if I’m doing a lot of walking).
