Cozy Cool

I snagged up this cozy knit at the Urban Outfitter's summer sale.  It was probably the best deal I got all season.  Half off already sale prices- I mean come on!  Now that things are cooling down a little I finally get a chance to revel in it's glory.  It is by Ecoté and is made up of a combo of sweatshirt/ sweater like fibers which is supreme for me because I can not stand an itchy sweater!  I won't do it, I just won't.  I love the blue aztec prints, but this thing is soooo soft!  It will be my new jacket and blankie, my... jankie?  I am guessing I will be living in it come winter.  And I am okay with that, I just hope my husband and friends are.  ;)

Fall Floral

Ahhh!  September was such a busy month you guys!  It just flew by!  I had my hands full creating 7 elf costumes and 6 rainbow bright sprite costumes for Comicon Wizard World in Nashville.  It was such a fun event, and it really revved me up for Halloween!  The wheels they are a turning.  We also took a mini vaycay down to the Gulf Shores.  I had never been there before.  It was very lovely and very relaxing.  I could defiantly see us going back again next year.  Until last weekend it hadn't really been cold here, so putting together a fall outfit that I wasn't sweating through was a bit of a challenge.  Luckily this trapeze top that I got on sale from Express in July was just the trick.  It has a nice floral/ fall pattern yet the fabric is light and airy and very soft against the skin.  Win win!  Fall fashion here I come!

 Hat: Mossimo // Floral trapeze blouse: Express // Black Skinnies: Target // Lace up booties: Gifted

Peekaboo Tops and High Tops

Getting floral with it, Na na na na na na na nana, Na na na na nana.  Okay, sorry for that.  I just had to.  Anyhow, I was getting floral with it because I made that hat.  Well, I didn't construct the whole thing, but shall we say I made an improvement?  It was an average black logo cap, but with my floral patterned fabric sewn over the old logo I get a lot more use out of it now.  It was fairly easy too, just sized it up and sewed it right over.  Stick pins were key in this venture.  I am also toying with the idea of adding some font.  What do you think?  What should my new floral fashion cap say?

Tea Cup Saucer Nails

The new trend in nails are nude or naked nails.  Coated with a skin colored lacquer, they are supposed to look very natural and perfect.  Nail art is supposedly on it's way out.  I purchased some polish resembling my foundation bottle to try the new trend, Sally Hansen 315 in camelflage.  It was nice and neural for a fresh no fuss look.  However, in couple of days I got bored of it, and thus my tea time nails were born.  Nail art is still in for me!  I have listed below the products that I used to acquire this look.  Oh, and it was my first time using Jamberry.  As this is only day two of the nail wrap and I need to wait a bit longer before I can share my thoughts on those.  

Sally Hansen Nail Lacquer: Mint Sorbet // Essie Nail Lacquer: Poppy Art Pink // Sally Hansen Nail Lacquer: Camelflage // Seche Vite: Dry Fast Top Coat // Sally Hansen nail art pen: white // Jamberry Nail Wrap: Vintage Chic // Nail Art Decal: Artclub (Sally's Beauty, unfortunately found this once and haven't been able to find it again)

*Seche Vite is awesome!!!  If you love doing your nails and hate smudging or waiting for dry time you must get this!  It is a game changer!  ... my jamberry wraps are starting to peel in the corners...
