OOTD: Purple Glitter Nails & Cardigan

Purple is the reigning colour this fall.  My new purple glitter fade manicure inspired me to include a purple ruffled cardigan in my OOTD on Sunday.  I love mixing purple with grey. Throwing on a bit of bling dresses jeans up.  My favourite playful necklace these days has dragonflies on it.  I wear it with everything from jeans to my little black dress.

Here’s my first selfie.  Harder to do than I thought!  Thanks to my hubby for stopping what he was working on and taking some pictures for me.  I couldn’t look at the camera because it was super bright outside on Sunday after a very windy Saturday night!

Sizzlin’ Summer Colour!

Vancouverites – you just can’t satisfy them!  We complain a lot about the copious amounts of rain and cloudy skies we get here.  We yearn for summer most of the year, but then on days like today (102 degrees in the shade), we complain that it’s too hot!  But we do treasure these precious summer days and try to make the most of them.  If you can’t beat the heat, join it!

I don’t know about you, but I can’t get enough of the colour orange this summer!  It just makes everything pop, from lip gloss to nail polish to clothing to shoes.  Here are some orange Franco Sarto peep toe shoes that I recently got at Marshall’s.  They are flaming orange but look reddish orange in the picture because it was taken indoors at night time.

To see my coral glitter-fade manicure from last month, check out my previous post Colour Is In!  Today I was ready for something bolder on my nails.  Big thanks to my patient husband for taking a gazillion pictures of my orange French tips and orange wedges from different angles until I was happy.  It sure helps that we’re newlyweds.  And that I picked up some ice cold Alexander Keith’s for him on my way home from the nail salon.
