It’s still summer around here, so I’m taking note from Mother Nature and wearing a party dress 🙂 Even though my fall booties and scarves are calling my name, I’m happily drinking pumpkin spice lattes while waiting around for some chilly mornings. Have a good week, readers!

And for this month’s #monthlymani: it’s a  Turn of the Season theme! I used new the Essie Treat Love Color as a base color; and I’m thrilled to say it’s a perfectly opaque neutral color! I added a glitter effect also by Essie at the tips to add a “turning of the season” flare. Neutral to GLITTER is how I feel about fall :).  Be sure to head over to Kristi to check out her fall themed #monthlymani!

Well, we all know the bell sleeve and knot trend is everywhere these days, and I’m completely swooning over these embellished styles- especially given that these tops are 100% cotton and comfortable versions of these trends. Hand me a pumpkin spice latte, and fall is off to a perfect start 🙂 ! I’m going to be cozying up with books, coffee, pumpkin everything, tea, and of course, embellished everything!
