outfit: dash of mint with pink

mint earrings + pink dress

Summer has put a total spin on my typical wardrobe choices. While Fall/Winter/Spring had been full of pants to work, and weekend denim, lately the only thing I want to grab is a breezy dress or a pair of shorts. Think we all know that dresses are amazing — especially when you find the right one for your body — because it’s one item and it’s an entire outfit in one. Talk about a home run.

I’ve been playing a lot more with different color combinations, in large part thanks to these mint Kendra Scott earrings (I wear constantly). Since green and pink are such a great combo, taking a hue in the green range gave me the confidence that this worked… and, as I always say, it’s just one day (worse case scenario).

When it comes to polish, apologies in advance for lack of diversity: I’m obsessed with Essie’s Marshmallow for my hands — the perfect not-too-harsh white — and a purple on my toes. This OPI A Grape Fit is new to me, and I love it. Otherwise I love Essie’s Play Date.

PS: Abundantly clear based on these photos that this girl needs a tan. What’s your favorite product to give yourself that faux tan glow??

    Love this dress!!!! Faux tan – Sonia Kashuk’s Sunless an Face & Body Towelette’s in Golden from Target. Absolutely the best faux tanning product on the market. I look like I’ve been at the beach all summer when in fact, I’m actually quite the human highlighter in real life.
