Finally, an Outfit Post

Wow, remember when I would take photos of my outfits? I'd like to bring back that habit. I was a little nervous to take these photos since it's been a while and I'm out of practice, usually resulting in awkward posing. But these portraits came out remarkably well. Today was chillier than it has been for the past few weeks, and it was windy, which made me nervous for photos as well, but it turns out the wind kind of "complimented"my hair. (ha)

Earlier this week I realized that I haven't been listening to music as often as I used to. I listen to the radio in the car because I keep forgetting to charge my iPod and it's kind of a pain to keep switching CDs. (Another reason I listen to the radio: I don't want to be completely clueless when I watch new episodes of Glee...) I listened to my own music for a change, and I instantly felt better. I didn't even realize that I was feeling down/missing something in my life until I listened to "my" songs. Has anyone else experienced this? Isn't it nice to have your own personal playlists? 
So, honestly, the real reason I was motivated to take photos today is to show you all my nails. Ah, they're so cute! Have y'all heard of Jamberry Nail Wraps? GET ON THAT. I'm wearing Reminisce and the Metallic Gold Pinstripe for my ring fingers. The pinstripe ones are actually transparent, and I'm wearing black polish underneath. So versatile. My favorite thing about these are that you don't have to wait for them to dry and they don't chip. And there are so many designs! Like I've mentioned before, I don't really like too many accessories, so nail art is perfect for me.

  1. It's nice to see you again and yay for outfit posts! I know how you feel about feeling awkard posing after a while haha. I've been wanting to try the nail wraps! Do you know how long they last?

    1. The nails wraps last for about two weeks, but longer if they're on your toenails.

  2. you look so cute here!

    would you mind to follow each other? :)

    greetings from Hong Kong :)

  3. Love the nails! I had them on my toes but I totally sucked at putting them on. But I absolutely love your patterns! The stripes are so cute. U so cute.

    Ok but yes I know exactly what you mean with the music thing!!! That same thing happened to me too. It's weird how much music can change a situation, huh?!

  4. those red boots are adorable! i love red + turquoise together in photos like this!


  5. You have no need to feel awkward about these photos - they turned out great! You'd never know that you hadn't taken outfit photos in a while :)
    I totally know what you mean about listening to 'your' music - there's so many special memories tied to the songs I personally love and listening to them brings back lots of positive vibes!
    I hope you're keeping well, Beverley!
    All the best,

  6. Love these photos! So beautiful. And I love the hints of blue and red in this outfit. Plus, those nail wraps? So freaking cute! I want some! I know what you mean about feeling better when you listen to your music. I have several bands/albums that put me in that good comfortable happy mood :)


  7. Love the outfit, and you look substantially less awkward than I do when I take selfies for my blog!
