Neutrals on neutrals … any day

Yesterday was a beautiful day. Sunshine radiating, birds chirping, flowers blooming – I was even able to get a nice little bronzed base by sitting outside for a half hour.

Happy spring!

I spoke too soon. Rain, rain, rain today. I don’t know about you, but I like to coordinate my polish with the seasons. Dark hues for fall and winter, neons and pastels for spring and summer. So what’s a girl to do when D.C. weather is so hot and cold?

I turn to my lifesaver – what I call my transition shades: neutrals! Take a look at some of my favorites 🙂

Yes, please!

Neutrals are beyond versatile. They serve as a perfect transition from day to night, casual to formal and from winter to spring!

Turn to the peacoat

This morning was chilly – and I mean CHILLY. But, it’s not completely unbearable if you’ve transitioned to that fall wardrobe of yours. I think I’m finally ready to accept the fact my boots and scarves are creepily starting to dominate my light, not-so-summer-y (anymore) closet. This was my go-to attire for today’s crisp Tuesday autumn morning (and now afternoon!)

My Zara peacoat, Michael Kors knee-high leather boots and MMS studded satchel from Marshall’s were my essentials for today. I also threw in a splash of gold jewelry with my faux turquoise stackable gold rings from Forever 21, as well as my gold and black statement necklace from Nordstrom.
