Autumn Beauty

10/21/2013


My girlfriends and I were talking about our favorite seasons over wine and cheese this weekend (Kristine - summer; Daniela - winter but mainly because she loves roasted chestnuts) and I realized that more than one particular season, I love the beginning of each. The promise of what's to come. A sort of starting over. New foods and fashion. And beauty.

During the summer, I wear neutral polish or a pop of bright coral or turquoise on my toes. More often than not, I'm too hot to blow out my hair so it's in a top knot. Now that it's fall, I'm ready for darker polish on my fingers and toes (maroon is a staple but I'm loving navy and also olive green) and for hair that takes more of an effort, maybe with a braided crown or Old Hollywood wave.

Yes yes yes to the braided crown! And I think I need to try olive nails. I think it's time to retire the pink sparkles :(

I've had a pretty neutral shade on my nails for a while now but I'm so ready for a little Russian Navy or Lincoln Park After Dark. :)

I also love the beginning of Fall---the first fire in the fireplace--the chill in the air on my morning walk--

Oh yeah I just switched to fall colors too. I just got a putty gray mani and the one before was burgundy. The next will be dark purple.

I am so with you on this. Though fall is my favorite season (by far), there's just something about the change into each that feels so special. I am one to change my nails and lipstick for each season too, and I've been loving the fall colors lately :)

Laura {happily ever} Parker said...

I agree with you. There is something very special about the beginning of each new season.

Love the soft waves. I'm interested in trying a darker polish too-preferably navy!

Lauren said...

I love your point about the start of each season! I can never pick a favorite. When we lived in San Diego, I never missed the season change, but here on the east coast, I'm so grateful to have it.

I'm on to darker nails too, and that braid! I need to figure out how to do that.
