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!

My girl Andrea of A Spoonful of Sugar Baking recently suggested a closet challenge to me, and I was all in! I recently posted this top, sandals, and bracelets (pics below) and decided to challenge myself to re-style all of the items! #outfitrepeater  The result was fun and challenging…so of course I’m signing up for an all month closet challenge (with myself-ha!)! Stay tuned, readers! And have a lovely weekend!

I’m waiting for my first Zaful order, but wondering if anyone has checked out Rosegal? If so, tell me your picks and your thoughts! I’m in the market for summer maxi dresses and summer suits! I never seem to tire of summer dresses, especially maxi dresses, which transition easily into fall with sweaters and cardigans. If you’ve checked out Rosegal let me know! I’ll post my first order ASAP! I’ve got my eye on some off the shoulder tops!

“Little darling, it’s been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it’s been here
Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun, and I say
It’s all right”
