gray day (rotation time)


Really hazy weather led to some challenges in capturing quality photos this week, readers, so I apologize for the haziness in the photos! Anywho, this is the year I commit to rotation in my clothing, shoes, and coats. I often find myself reaching for my same clothes in winter…just the same boots and coat daily. It’s cold, gray, a bit dreary, often early- it’s easy to just reach for whatever is nearest. But this year I’m committed to truly rotating through my winter items instead of falling into the same routine! The perfect companion to this rotation project is also pairing down and donating what I don’t wear. Win win.

Top: Ann Taylor ($16 marked down from $70)

Skirt: Ann Taylor Loft ($15 marked down from $90)

Tights: H&M ($5)

Shoes: Not Rated via DSW ($50 marked down from $75)

Coat: thrift ($9)

I realized recently that I rely heavily on online reviews when trying new products, but rarely offer my own reviews of products! So, I’d like to occasionally offer feedback on products, as I’m able to do so.

As you can see from the photo on the left, my nails are peeling very badly this winter (my polish peels as a result, as you can also see in the photo!). I use lotion constantly, I use cuticle oil nightly, I use base coat- you name it, I have tried it. While I think these efforts do help, I decided to try the new(er) Essie Treat Love & Color nail treatment. The color is really just a slightly glimmer on your nails, but the collagen added to the nail treatment seems to really be helping with peeling! I’ll report back in a couple of weeks my full opinion of the product- but I can say in week one, my nails have stopped peeling. A small victory for sure!

I found my bottle at Target for $10, but it is sold basically anywhere Essie is sold. More info on Essie Treat Love and Color can be found here.

  1. Looking good, Melissa! I do the very same thing as in reaching for the same articles of clothing. Perhaps it is time for me to either rotate as you are doing or go through what I do have and decide to keep or donate to charity. Happy Weekend!!! ❤
