DIY Mermaid Nails

I've been promising you guys a new makeup tutorial, and here it is - a beautiful DIY mermaid mani! It's so perfect for Summer, and I promise you, it's quite easy to do. I was so inspired by the samples I recently received from Nail Social Nail Brand. I have to say, when I first saw the colors, I knew they were a little bit out of my typical comfort zone. Honestly, I haven't worn sparkly blue nail polish since college, which was quite a while ago for me. For years I've stuck with pinks, reds, and purples; with the most adventurous of my manis being hot pink (and only when hot pink was very on-trend). None the less, I was ready to try this "24K Mermaid" polish. Objectively speaking, as blue sparkly nail polishes go, it was pretty after all.

It was beautiful on, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that under different lighting it went from a true blue to a sparkly greenish blue that looked even more...mermaid-ish if you ask me. When it came time to take i…

Essentials for Transitioning to Fall


There are two kinds of people - those who cling to the summer months and wish they would last longer, and then there are those who welcome pumpkin spice lattes, falling leaves, and boots regardless of the temperature. I am totally the latter, especially now that I'm with someone who loves fall just as much as I do...and he loves it when I wear my boots.:) Pictured: Cartonnier Eve Velvet Blazer

Once the big fall fashion issues hit the newsstands, I no longer care what the weather channel or the calendar says; I'm totally over summer. Here are some ways to dip your toes into the fall fashion season with some classic transitional pieces.


LONGER LENGTHS - You can still pull off a summer dress, weather permitting, but as we near the fall months, a midi or maxi seems more appropriate. And it's easy to throw on a jacket and swap out the sandals for ankle booties for a head-to-toe fall look. Though a shorter dress, like this Plus Size Knee Length Dress, can transition perfectly with some tights and some chic black pointed toe booties. Pictured: Maria Grazia Panizzi Carvina Maxi Dress

ANKLE BOOTS - As I just mentioned, ankle boots are a great way to transition your summer dresses into the beginning of fall, and they're perfect for when it's still too warm for tall riding boots.


FALL DENIM -  I live in jeans all year long, but if you tend to wear short jean shorts during summer, you can start to incorporate jeans or cropped denim, or swap out your breezy summer skirts for a jean skirt. It's also a great way to transition some of your summer blouses. Pair them with skinny jeans and pumps, and pair cropped boyfriend jeans with a pair of ankle booties.

EFFORTLESS LAYERS - The chilly mornings and evenings that come with fall can be hard to dress for when the afternoons can still be quite warm. Layers are always the answer. And there are so many cute ways to layer; whether it be a leather jacket, a blazer, or a cozy cardigan. Pictured: Plenty by Tracey Reese Geometric Poncho

What are some of your favorite pieces to wear as the summer comes to an end?
