Just a little pop of color...

I can not remember the last time I painted my finger nails a color other than a barley there light pink. While browsing the make-up section at Target last night, I spotted this color from Essie (lady like). Taupe with a little bit of purple, subtle and fun all at the same time. What is you favorite new nail color?

Update: Fall Shopping

Since my last post on my fall wish list, I have been working on putting a few of those pieces in my closet. I have not been able to find them all online, but here are some similar styles.

So far I have snagged the following:

Dark wide-leg trouser jeans (Gap)

Grey and ivory animal print scarf

Olive green day dress (DVF)

New riding boots (Frye)

Ivory silk shirt (Banana Republic)

Still on my wish list:

-Navy school-boy blazer
-Wedge booties

-Classic long coat
-Bold, simple striped shirts
-Well-cut, classic sweaters in bold colors
-Statement necklaces
-Perfect grey pencil skirt

I am obsessed with this coat...I want it in every color! How soon is too soon to buy a coat for the winter?

Waiting for Fall

I have been pining for fall fashions. My summer staples are getting old and I am not finding much in the way of inspiration in my closet (and figuring out how to dress for triple digit temps outside and a freezing office is always a challenge).

I came across a few of these early fall looks from Banana Republic and I am starting to see my fall wardrobe take shape...simple riding boots, lady-like tops, monochromatic looks, pops of color and yes-the return of the flare!

Fall always brings a freshness with it and I am SO looking forward to that this year!
