Zara Vest, Periwinkle Jeans, Glitter Loafers

The lighting has been really wonky lately when I go to take photos - maybe its the time I'm choosing to do it? Anyway, sorry about the extra grainy photos below. I'm really upset because I washed my Zara white linen moto jacket (worn below) to get some stains off, and it came out kind of warped from the washing machine. I tried ironing it but it still doesn't look the same. It's not terrible or unwearable but it's not the same as it was either...I might have to look for a replacement. I wore this to run some errands on Sunday- went to CVS, Panera, and Ulta to hit up the 20% off sale. I purchased 2 new colors of gel polish to add to my collection. Although my finger nails are still far from being grown out, I love doing my toes because the gel polish lasts at least 2 weeks and the shine stays amazing until the minute you remove the polish. I'm also able to wear more "fun" colors on my toes than on my hands. I'm curious - what colors do you wear on your nails to work? Do you have any restrictions in your dress code regarding polish?

  1. I like your layering in this look! :) Shame about your vest not going well through the washing machine though :(

    Hope you got some great polish colours! I'm lucky there are no rules about polish at work, but I'm not in a public facing role so there is more leeway with what we can wear. Today my fingernails are bright orange! :)

  2. I'm really excited about my nails again! I got a pretty steel grey color and a pink/purple color. Wearing it on my toes now!

  3. I used to do pink and whites but decided they were a waste of money and they hurt like hell if you broke one. In my new office, which is intimidatingly huge, the older women seem to have more creative license than the younger ones. The young ones are all too busy trying to get somewhere in the firm. It's not a hard and fast rule, though. I think it's entirely self policed.
