Some Outfits from Last Week and a New Obsession!

I hope everyone in America and all my American readers abroad had a fabulous and safe 4th of July weekend! I had a great first week of work and the weekend has been fun and relaxing! We've caught up with friends, done tons of shopping and eaten really good food!

I've been going back and forth with my second blog, Pink Julep's Dressing Room and I think that this week proves I'm really only able to keep up with one blog, especially since I'm working now. So I'm going to put that project on hold again and I'll continue posting OOTD's, but I'll incorporate them into this blog. It's just easier. And I'm starting with a couple of outfits from last week, the first of which is pictured above: a vintage inspired floral dress and cardigan combo that I bought for summer and have only just now gotten to wear cause it's finally warm in London! Yay!

I even coordinated my nail polish with the ensemble. I'm really into using nail polish as an accessory these days! I probably change my nail colour about 3 times a week on average. Though it doesn't show in these photos, the blue was exactly the same colour as the blue on the dress.

Love this print! It incorporates on-trend coral and it's very water colour looking. I'm the worst for wearing all black all the time, so I've been trying to push myself into wearing more colours!

The dress and cardigan were very bright so I kept my make-up simple and used coral blush and lipstick, two of my favourite things!
I love these sunglasses and they haven't seen the light of day in quite some time!

I am currently so obsessed with bracelets and stacking them up in different colours. I'm probably a little late on this trend so I stocked up on tons of bracelets this weekend at H&M and Accessorize! One of my favourite bloggers, Pretty in Pink Megan has coined this trend "The Arm Party" and I'm on board! What do you think of this trend? Are you wearing tons of bracelets stacked up your arm? What are your favourite types of bracelets to mix and match?

  1. You look beautiful in that dress & cardi! Color suits everyone (in my opinion) ;o)

  2. Completely with you on the stacked bracelets look! I'm all about piling as many on as I can--until it's uncomfortable! x

  3. I love the print on that dress!

    I have a big pile of seed bead bracelets that I have had for YEARS and I used to always wear 4 or 5, especially in the summer (they are cooler than metal or heavier jewelry), to compliment whatever colors I was wearing.
