A Little Indulgence: Exotic Sandal-Ready Polish Picks

Throughout the summer, I have been eyeing some beautiful sandals. The numerous outfits that I envisioned with these sandals always included polish, but not just any nude, bright or black polish ... I kept visualizing exotic, flattering colors. The type of colors that made me think of oasis escapes in the desert or hanging out at an artist's bohemian loft.

I see so many pictures of great shoes paired with unpolished toes. Seriously, if you invest in the shoes and the outfit, why not invest in the nail polish to finish off the look? Whether it's a DIY quickie or a full spa pedi, sandals with varnished toes just looks more polished (pun intended). It's a little indulgence, but...
  1. It can be a relatively inexpensive treat (especially if you opt for the DIY route),
  2. Polish usually lasts 2-3 weeks on the toes, and
  3. Aren't you worth the time it takes to indulge and look polished?
Here are some of the exotic colors that I'm loving (FYI - All of the brands shown are non-toxic)...

Four Trends That Are Now Staples of Style

Minimal style is a distant memory when it comes to clothing. The resurgence and appreciation of glamour has been alive and thriving for several years, and appears to be here to stay.

Here are four resulting former trends that have gone the distance...

High/Low Hemlines - A style that has touched maxi dresses and skirts, tops and even couture.

Tops Reworked

In my quest to fill my closet with pieces that I love, I accumulated a lot of clothes. However, I have not worn a number of items because...

  1. It could use a tweak or two, to make me want to wear it immediately, or
  2. It fits, but could use a tweak or two to ensure it is flattering to my figure. My shape is normal ... not perfect. I accept my body but won't wear clothing that doesn't flatter.

This is the motivation for my rework projects ... To turn items that I love into fabulous pieces that I love and can't wait to wear.

I got inspired this weekend (I kind of lost my mind for a sec) and reworked 14 tops and one former dress (the first picture). I combined tops and even decided to use some of my rarely-worn scarves.

Here are a few of the results...
