Color Color Color!

{all pictures taken by me except the 2nd pic. which is from the purse forum}

1. My collection of colored jeans. I’ve been a fan of colored jeans for a long time and actually get as much use out of them as I do with my blue jeans. The green are the only new ones, which I plan on wearing this weekend.
2. A Balenciaga color wheel picture which I have saved in my inspiration folder. Happens to be one of my favorite photos that I’ve also used as my desktop wallpaper for months. Isn’t it pretty?!
3. Ever since I started painting my own nails (rather than getting manicures), my collection of nail polishes has grown significantly. Pictured are some of my favorite bright colors and although I like Essie a lot, Revlon has become one of my favorite brands in terms of price and quality. Unfortunately their color selection is not quite there yet.
4. Pretzel M&M’s: my current favorite candy that I’m a bit obsessed with. Pretzels + chocolate in an M&M form, what’s not to love?
5. Bright jeans & bright nail polishes, just an image that makes me smile.

Happy Friday!

    Brightness is excellent for a Friday! I keep meaning to try Essie polish, so maybe I will pick some up to try this weekend!

    You have inspired me to try colored jeans – I've been so scared of them, but they look so fun!

    What great images!!!! I love your jeans – are the all Rich and Skinny? I have been looking for a fun pair but can't seen to track a color and a style in a single pair! It is always one or the other!

    PS…try putting the pretzel M&M's in the freezer for a couple hours!! They're a little frozen treat and soooooo good!! You'll be even more addicted 🙂

  • Estefania Lovelifefashion

    I love colored jeans on you, you've got amazing legs to make them look right 😉
    M&M's mmmmm I bought 3 bags of them when I was in NYC back in 2008 LOL Did you take a look at my blog NYC trip posts?? It was my honeymoon tryp in August 2008. http://lovelifefashionbj.blogspot.com/2010/11/my-honeymoon-part1.html

  • Maggie ☮

    I totally agree with the Revelon nail polish. Most of my nail polish is from there but I wish they had a more variant color palette.

    Love your bag collection

  • Beautygirl24

    What a cute post! All of the bright colors makes me long for Summertime! The Essie polishes are gorgeous, and I actually own quite a few that I have been busting out early. I typically wear bright nails in Spring and Summer, but it's been so dreary lately here that fun hues are what I need.

  • Style-Pursuit

    @ Style Pursuit, so happy you've become a follower!

    @ Taylor, they're all Rich & Skinny (I do like how the fit works on me) except the green ones, which are from Zara!

  • Alicia

    Love all the color! Makes me so excited for spring! Those bags are seriously drool worthy!!!

  • worldofaglaia

    i love revlon nail polish as well (and couldn't agree with you more on their limited colour selection). When I have trouble finding the perfect colour otherwise unavailable to me, my go-to are The Face Shop and Sephora nail polish 🙂

  • 2Anchor

    Pretzel M&M's are my current fav! They are the closet thing to chocolate covered pretzels in bite size. Happy Friday! Love the nail colors!
