J.Crew Dress, Club Monaco Jacket, Celine Sunglasses, Vintage Chanel Purse, Steve Madden Booties
I’m not usually a big fan of shift dresses. They’re practical, but they usually end up resembling shapeless bags on me. This one felt different. I’m a sucker for anything with scalloped edges and I love that they run along both the hemline and the sleeves. Its simplicity makes it an ideal canvas for accessorizing, but it can just as easily stand on its own with only a black moto jacket and booties.

One of the first things I notice about a girl’s appearance is her nail polish. I think it says a lot about her, or perhaps just her lifestyle, and whether she opts for something bold and bright or minimalist and subtle. I’m really specific when it comes to the polishes I wear – nothing with shimmer or sheen (though I’m okay with glitter) and in colors that are truly opaque. Based on my rather obsessive criteria, I’ve compiled a list of favorites (you can click on each photograph to see the full post), ranging from the palest pink to a dramatic dark. Of course I switch it up with other shades from time to time, but these are my classic go-to’s that I’ll always love.
What are your signature nail colors?

Traditional varsity jackets are a bit too pink-lady-meets-quarterback for my taste and any kind of bulky outerwear is usually not a welcomed addition to my closet. But when I saw this silky thin, palm-print jacket (I mean, the color is called “Beverly Hills”), I knew it was an ideal compromise. I don’t own many statement pieces, primarily because they’re not as versatile, but every once in a while, whether in the form of a cobalt heel or a kitschy jacket, it’s a fun splurge to take.
