    James Robert John Polish

    The other week I sat down with the creator and owner, Rachel, of James Robert John nail polish and got to try out a couple of different colors. I wish everyone could meet Rachel face to face and hear her inspiring story and motivation for the company. Her passion for the nail polish company is amazing. Every aspect of the polish down to the shape of the bottle and ingredients were carefully chosen and all have a meaning. All of JRJ polish is 5-free and approved by PETA, meaning it does not contain formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor. On top of that, the nail polish, bottles, boxes, everything is…

    Garden Dress

     And the final look for my wedding series with Vernacular is this adorable garden dress. I love this dress for the weddings in between beach and black tie, the daytime or garden weddings. The pattern is floral but a bit different as it shows the flowers roots, which I love. I’m also a huge fan of the drop waist style, I think it is adorable, flatters your legs, and fun to twirl around in, which for dancing at a wedding is a must!  This dress would be great for a summer wedding because it can be worn during the day and then into the evening, especially if the reception is…

    Aloha Wedding

    You think you have wedding attire all figured out until you get invited to a destination wedding on the beach. Beach weddings can actually be easier. You can wear a more versatile outfit that can be worn afterwards. This hawaiian dress, from Vernacular, would be a great choice for a beach wedding. You get the casual beachy feel but the length, back design and fabric make it nice enough for someone’s special day. Beaches can get a bit breezy which is why I paired this light weight scarf for a cover up if you get chilled during the ceremony. Stick with sandals or a nice pair of flip flops, stilettos…

    Black Jumpsuit for Black Tie

    Wedding season is in full swing, which means the dress hunt is on. What to wear to a wedding varies, but more times than not when it is a black tie wedding, they will note that on the invitation. Men have it a bit easier, they can just go rent a tux, but women get the joy of going out and buying a gown. An alternative option to buying a gown, that you might not get a chance to wear again, is trying a black jumpsuit. This jumpsuit, from Vernacular,would be a perfect choice for a black tie wedding. It can be dressed up with gold and silver jewelry along with…

    Meijer Style

    Happy Summer! Now that it is hot and humid out, your wardrobe will be changing as well. I usually go for clothing that is a bit looser so you can catch a breeze and don’t have to hide in air conditioning all day. I found this pair of uniquely shaped earrings at Meijer and was inspired to put this outfit together from there. The earrings are just the right size and shape to be worn both as a daytime and nighttime accessory. Here I worn them as a daytime accessory to spruce up the outfit a bit. It is a perfect outfit for a day out to brunch or walk…
