red {clothes}, white {legs} & blue {nails}

Jacket & Shoes- Thrifted; Dress- Sears; Bracelets- Gifted; Finger Nail Polish- Dreamer by Revlon; Toe Nail Polish- Static Electricity by L.A. Colours
Today I am dressed like the American flag (with red stripes, white legs & blue nails) wearing a dress I bought recently at Sears. I usually just walk through this department store to get to the rest of the mall but the 50% off dreses sign enticed me so I stopped to browse.  I love the soft fabric, draped neckline, cinched waist and $25 price tag and may just have to return to buy the same style in navy!

Warm weather has finally arrived in Ottawa (after 6 months of snow!) so you will see me almost exclusively in dresses and skirts for the next few months (so if my glow in the dark limbs offend you, you may want to stay away!

I don't typically wear matching manis and pedis but instead choose a colour (in this case blue) and paint my toes and nails with differing shades for a streamlined look that's not too matchy matchy. 

What clothing do you gravitate towards come spring and summer heat?


  1. That's a pretty dress Emily! Ok, now I need to check out Sears! HaHa Who would've thought!?! Love your coat too. I always pack my closet with colors for the Summer. You look pretty! Good job!

  2. emily you look so freaking cute! it's like a peppermint candy cane, but better. fun how you paired it with that shade of blue. i dig it. :)

  3. I'm a carpi and skirt kind of girl in the summer time. I love the blue on your nails.

  4. This is a great skirt! I love your red white and blue outfit. When the weather warms up it's definitely skirts and dresses all the way!

  5. How dramatic! Love the bold color and print.

  6. This is a great dress! I wouldn't have been able to pass it up either!!

    I'm definitely a skirts and dresses gal when it comes to spring and summer weather!

  7. I prefer something lightweight when it happens to be hot (not very often in Estonia though). dresses, shorts, skirts.. stuff like that. anyway, I have to say red really suits you and that dress has such a great shape and suits you perfectly. and you're right, you are one of the whitest girls I know, hehe :P

  11. Your dress is absolutely fabulous and you look so gorgeous - as usual! Great dress, really, and I liked the blue nails too! If I only had the courage for that... the "furthest" I went was dark blue... one day I'll do in yellow, blue, green! I think... :)


One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
