i am wearing: michael kors bomber jacket (similar), diesel jeans, target t-shirt, dsw wedges, f21 rhinestone necklace & spike bracelet and my new neon orange cambridge satchel. manicure is “hayden” by julep with essie’s “shine of the times” on my thumb and ring finger.

i found this leather jacket at nordstrom rack a month before xmas and called my hubby to let him know that santa had put it in my cart to take home. as soon as i got it home, my hubby snatched it from me and hid it. i actually BEGGED for it when we had our big date night out last month and he refused to let me have it til xmas. so i am excited that i finally got to wear it. and my new neon satchel. but what i really want to talk about is this julep nail polish!!!  it is a neon peach color and i am obsessed with it. unfortunately the essie luxeffects polish doesn’t show up in the pics, but it adds iridescent flecks without really changing the color of your base color. so fun!

p.s. i decided not to wear the rhinestone necklace with this outfit after all. the pop of neon on my nails and my satchel were more than enough in the accessory department. this is one of the reasons i like taking pics before i leave the house. the camera never lies. =)

    SOOO jealous you got one of those bags – I’ve been wanting one forever! That’s why I’m stalking the Target dupe like crazy!! And I really want that nail polish – I’ve been looking for a bright peach for spring, so I’m going to have to buy it. 🙂

    That leather jacket looks so soft and it’s so pretty! And of course I’m digging the nails! That color looks great on you and I love how you paired it with the Essie luxeffects.

    These nails are straight up YUMMY! They remind me of an orange julius or of those sugary orange gummy candies that look like real orange slices but are not haha.

    I want!

    I have another essie glitter, an old one, called carnival that has a similar effect on all colors! Love!
