Nerdy Chic- New Readers

The time has come for this girl to wear reader glasses at night when reading all her magazines before bed. These cute leopard cat eye's make it okay with me.

A fashionable and attractive, yet nerdy type appearance and lifestyle which far exceeds the classiness of the typical nerd.

Going Wide

I have been so caught up with skinny jeans and cigarette pants I always forget about my trusty wide leg pants. This pair was hiding in the back of my closet and thanks to Harlo kitty who decided to crawl up my clothes and perch, I have recently been reaquainted.

Mani Color of the Month- Toast of the Town

Continuing the holiday sparkle into January as I chose to wear Face Stockholm's gold glitter polish in "Toast of the Town". The gold seemed a perfect way to honor my team the San Francisco 49ners this month as I had gone to the playoff game last week and the championship game yesterday. Even though we will not be moving on to the superbowl, my nails will remind me of all the fun I had this month.

To see last month's mani color, see here.

What I Want Wednesday- Glass Jars

Ever since I saw this picture in the Coveteur, I have been inspired to find fun ways to hold all my trinkets as opposed to being in a drawer hiding. I went shopping with my mom over the weekend and picked up a beautiful sculpted jar to hold my lipsticks and leaning towards picking the next size up for nail polish.

Animal Accent

Happy Monday Tuesday! Don't you love it when it is a short week. A little chilly this morning, so added a this fun leopard print scarf into the mix.  Scarves are such a great investment for anyone's closet as they are extremely versatile and can be worn in every season.  A few tips I go by when wearing a scarf:   

Wear your scarf as a key piece: I tend to wear my lepoard scarf with neutrals such as solid color (black most of the time). Make sure the color of your clothing contrasts with the color of the scarf.

Accentuate: If your neck and chest are the main focus of your outfit, spice it up a notch by wearing a multiple chain necklaces or pearls with the scarf (make it sassy girls). Today I chose to go with no jewelry as my dress had a high neck and I wanted to keep it simple (ok, truth, I was running late and could not find my favorite chain necklace).

Less is more: Wear the print on only one part of your body. Spreading the leopard patterns elsewhere on your body makes it a bit overdone.  

Thanks honey for making me giggle this morning.
