Time for another Manicure Monday! I haven't painted my nails for awhile, sadly. I always plan too then something else gets in the way! I know it's Spring and all but I just spent this past weekend in Nashville and it was cold and rainy pretty much the whole time we were there so I decided to try out my charcoal nail polish. I've had it for about 2 months now and haven't even used it yet! I have to say I wish I wouldn't have waited so long because I love it! It's edgy but sophisticated as well.

I wore this outfit to church just this past Sunday. It was cool but I didn't need a jacket. My church is pretty laid back when it comes to attire. You can wear whatever you want, casual to dressy. Which I like because depending on my mood and how much time or effort I want to put into getting ready determines how I dress! I was kind of in the middle this time, not too casual or too dressy. I was quite comfortable in this and still look put together. This outfit not counting the purse comes in at under $35. Wowza! I think I'm a pretty good bargain shopper. Ladies, you don't have to have lots of money to look good!

Hey Y'all! I know its been about a month since I last posted. I haven't taken many pictures of my outfits lately. I have plenty of my friends & I but none of just me so I haven't been able to post! However I did take some pictures this past weekend. Here's another outfit with my salmon jeans. I was worried I wouldn't wear them much but I only paid about $16 for them and have already worn them twice in the month that I've had them so I think I already got my moneys worth out of them! I hope to be able to come up with more ways to wear them because I think they're fun! I also decided to get some hair extensions. I have been trying to grow my hair out but my hair grows so slow, its ridiculous. The kind I bought is one large piece so it adds lots of body & volume which I need and I've never gotten so many compliments on my hair before! I just wish it was actually my real hair! But people I don't know can't tell it's fake so I'm keeping them!

I know mint has been having a moment for a little while now but can I just tell y'all I'm obsessed. From clothes to nail polish to accessories, I'm a sucker for it! I was in Kohl's a few weeks ago and as soon as I saw this top I knew it was going to be mine. It was also in white with black polka dots but I bought the mint. If you know me then that is actually a shocker because I live in black and white mostly! I wore this to dinner and then we ended up going bowling. I hadn't been in almost a year so it was lots of fun and quite entertaining! I only got one picture where I'm actually wearing this outfit but I loved it so I laid it out on my (unmade) bed, sorry bout that!
Cute pleated neckline
Adorable bow in the back!
New mint/gold ring, pearl ring & necklace went perfectly!
At the bowling alley, it was chilly so I just threw on a ivory cardigan.

I actually remembered to post about Manicure Monday! Woo, go me! I had gotten these really cute black/silver textured with rhinestones nail stickers that I tried to do. They were a cheaper brand than the Sally Hansen ones and you could definitely tell. I was bummed because they looked like they would have been so cute but they wouldn't hold to my nail shape at all! So I had to rummage through my bag of nail polish (I have over 100!!!). So many options to choose from but I decided on doing something neutral so I can go a little longer even if it chips because it won't be as obvious. So here's what I ended up with, express dry- perfect because I'm ready for bed!
Maybelline New York, Express Finish in "Primrose Perfect", this is the nude color
Pure Ice in "Spit Fire", this is what I used for the glitter tips
Nail-Aid, 3 Minute Artificials, this is the top coat I used

Happy Easter everyone! I have had such a good weekend and then Easter Sunday was perfect to top it off! I have two outfits to post today! First my church outfit then what I wore to lunch and shopping at IKEA. I knew I wanted a lace dress for Easter and had been looking for a couple weeks and finally found one just on Thursday! I'm obsessed and can't wait to wear it again. Emerald is a big color for 2013 and as soon as I saw it hanging on the rack I knew I was going to be trying it on! I was sold. The color is gorgeous and the style is very classic and girly, perfect!

So I know it's Tuesday and all but I did this yesterday! Therefore I'm calling it manicure Monday and plan on doing a new one every week! I'll try to actually post it on Mondays though! Something new to try and why not since I'm constantly painting my nails anyways! :) The pink color is NYC "MoMa" and I forget the name of the Pure Ice one. It has a black base with pink, red, purple and blue sparkles in it. Gorgeous!
