Remember when I bought this hat way back when and debated whether I would wear it anywhere other than the beach? As it turns out, I haven’t worn it at all since the day I bought it, but since I lugged it all the way to Mexico, I had to wear it at least once. As I stared at my rather messy (and slightly greasy) hair, I decided it was time. I built this look around the hat, striving for a classic beach look, easy but chic. A pink gingham button down, dark rinse denim shorts and chambray sandals perfectly fit the bill. I finished the look off with tortoise shell sunglasses in a classic shape.
If you follow me on Twitter, you’ve already heard about this very orange nail polish. I’m on the fence about the color. I think my tan makes it slightly more acceptable than it would be against a milky complexion, but it still looks a little Halloween to me…and I really wanted Easter. When I headed to the nearest city (an hour by bus) with a list of items that I can’t buy here, one of the things I wanted most was a new nail color, like mint green, lavender, or pale yellow. I found none of these, and the best of the (limited) options seemed to be this orange. So, tell me: what do you think of this color?
