What I’m Loving These Last Days of Summer

I know that summer is nearing the end and that it’s almost time to put our espadrilles, cut off shorts, sun dresses, and floppy hats back in the closet. Soon we’ll pack them away in a box, store them on a shelf and rotate them out for Fall’s new “finds” but before we do, here are some things I’m still coveting just before the last couple of weeks and Labor Day sneak up and force us to say adiós to the hot sunny season.
I really got hooked on bright colors like corals, deep and bright oranges and hot pinks; they really helped offset my mainstays of tan, white, black and gray that I often gravitate to. I chose them for my nail colors lip colors and even shoes. Here are some more interesting treasures that I’m thinking of snatching up; some are even at end of season sale prices. Tell me what you think.
CHANEL Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colour
This   Chanel Le Vernis Nail Lacquer   in Espadrilles is SO HOT! I haven’t made the rounds to purchase it as of yet but it’s on the list! $28
Diane von Furstenberg Red Cigarette Pants
These tomato red trousers can actually go from summer into fall quite honestly.  $278           DVF Cigarette Pants

These fun and functional bags by Marc Jacobs are so right and “right now”! The burnt orange one could play into your casual fall wardrobe; if you wanted.   $117 (40% off) for the Lilac tote and $195 for the Orange, respectively.

And Marc Jacobs Beauty Hi-Shine Lacquers in French Tickler (on the right) was my summer go-to; it was just the right amount of sheer peachy shine without the gloppy-ness and now I want to try Forbidden Fruit.  $28

 

The Free People Dress  on the right is called the “Perfectly Victorian” Minidress $168 and it’s actually a new one launched for the end of summer. Nordstrom offered it at a 30% off discount during their Anniversary sale last week. I grabbed it in the Ivory one pictured above but it also comes in two more variations of black and red. The dress on the left is a beautiful slip dress being offered at Revolve; $128 $63 by Free People.

 

 

And these are such lovely shoes; I’m so enamored with the velvety smoothness of the suede and the peachy tone just took my breath away! If I don’t become the owner of a pair of these I’m really going to miss them. Also on sale at Revolve the Dahlia Espadrille Wedge by RAYE $190 $90…that’s over half off! So, so, so cute!!!!

 

 

I was wearing these all summer long; the forest green on my toes and the poppy red on my fingers. I know it bears some resemblance to the Chanel one above but I can assure you they’re different. The Chanel is a tad bit brighter and has way more of an orangey melon hue.  NARS Iconic Nail Polish Night Porter (L) Hunger (R).  Coincidentally, Night Porter is also an  eyeshadow  single and I have that too! These colors looked so good with my summer tan; even though I spent very little time at all trying to get color, I still wound up with some. And remember transitioning into fall they will work equally as well with deeper palettes; you just have to know how to pair them. I see myself partnering them with a lot of black, gray, cream and white.

Well, I hope everyone is having a great summer so far; mine has been busy! So many projects going on. It’s part of the reason I’ve neglected the blog for nearly 5 months! So realizing this I decided to check in and write a post. I hope you enjoy it and keep up with my current projects by following me on Twitter and Instagram!

Wishing You Love and Luxury,

Linda
