As a young girl, I remember accompanying my mom to a beauty salon which was the equivalent of a modern day spa. It was affordable, with a full head-to-toe beauty service provided in one spot. As any other girl, I was fascinated by the place and would often end up having my nails painted to match my mom’s finger tips. Now, as an adult, I have accumulated a big collection of nail polishes. Whenever I buy open shoes or sandals, one of my first thoughts is about a colour of a nail polish I could wear them with. Here is my take on high heels and flats paired with complementary nail polishes.

One of the trends that seems to be appearing on everything is stripes. I bought a striped skirt a while back which spent a substantial amount of time lying in my closet. Just recently I’ve started wearing it at least once a week while pairing it with pretty much anything. This outfit is good for work, just throw on a black blazer for a more professional look. Clearly, this trend is here to stay for a while.

I find that the colour navy appears in my wardrobe way too often, but I still can’t get enough of its versatility. This asymmetric skirt has been the latest addition to my summer wardrobe. I pair it with a relaxed fit striped tee or a white silk top, offset by an orange or coral nail polish.
