#MonthlyMani | Autumnal Hues

The Autumn season is associated with burnt orange and other festive yellow shades mainly, I think, because of the leaves and overall crispness in the air. However, when I think of Autumnal hues I’m drawn to darker versions of my summer favorites like dark greens, navy and dark reds.

The color I chose for this months #MonthlyMani link up is a deep purple which I used to create a v shaped half-moon mani. I finished the look off by applying a matte top coat both to help the polish last longer and to create a fun, non-shiny texture. It’s a bit messy and uneven because I didn’t use tape to make the v but I really like that it looks diy.

Floral Jumpsuit Obsessed

When I bought this floral print jumpsuit I had hoped I would have the courage to actually wear it more than once and now I find myself wanting to wear it every chance I can get. Jumpsuits are surprisingly easy to where (ya I know, DUH) after you get used to how they fit. Here I threw a slightly cropped jersey like tee over it and pulled my hair into a low pony which, for some reason, made me think of JLo hence the gold hoop earrings. Yes, I wear these sandals like in every post, I promise I tried so many other pairs of shoes but nothing else felt as effortless.

NYFW Spring 2015: J.Crew

The last post on NYFW will showcase my favorite looks from the Spring 2015 presentation by J.Crew. More than the actual clothes, the thing that always draws me to this brands presentations is the styling. The clothes are layered in an effortless, off the moment yet fashion forward ways. There is such a great take away and it inspires which is what fashion week is all about for me.

NYFW Spring 2015: Christian Siriano

Another designer I feature almost every Fashion Week is Christian Siriano. Other than being one of the few Project Runway competitors to real break into the fashion business, Christian Siriano is well-known for his flirty, feminine designs. For his Spring 2015 show he used different textured fabrics in noticeable but demure colors to create a full sensory experience. I also really like the accessories he used, especially the furry textured, peep toe heels which remind me of ones Sarah Jessica Parker wore as Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City.
