Stripes and Sneaks







[blazer + ring: h&m / top: zara / necklace: c/o jupe boutique / jeans: c/o hudson /
sneaks: c/o converse / glasses: c/o warby parker]

The great thing about working in a creative industry is that the dress code is pretty flexible. So this particular day, I wanted to mix my blazer with a pair of sneaks to dress it down. I love how fun and playful this was with the pop of green and funky necklace layered on top.

I also get to share with you the meow-rific nails I tried out. You can find out about them here. Basically, I put these nail polish stickers on my nails in under 10 minutes with no dry time. For a person as impatient as I am waiting for polish to dry, this was a dream come true. I definitely recommend you go out right now to the drugstore to try these babies out!

    Harlequib - I LOVE the nail art, it’s so cute but it’s not overwhelming if you know what I mean. That’s also pretty awesome that you can wear chuck taylor’s to work, I wish I could.

    Robin - I love your nails! I have been on the fence about trying them myself because I, too, am impatient. I will have to give it a go now! BTW I always love how cheery and fun you always look in your photos. You should teach a class on how to look fun in photos. And sign me up. 😉ReplyCancel

    Miyan - love this look! the pop of color really makes this outfit :)) i tried those sally hansen stickers too! i tried them in glittery gold and they lasted about a week and a half without chipping or peeling; pretty good….because i am probably just as impatient as you are when it comes to drying my nails after painting!

    This is definitely one of my most favorite outfits of yours! Love the bright colors. And the nails! I have been searching ever CVS/Target in my area for the leopard print nail stickers but they are always sold out 🙁 Those things are amazing though…my last batch lasted two weeks with ZERO chips!ReplyCancel
