Favorite Winter Nail Colors

I have been meaning to put this post together for quite awhile now, and here it is! I typically always have my nails painted, and I only wear darker colors on my nails in the colder months. So, I thought I would share some of my favorites.  These are my 4 go-to colors I have been wearing for the last few years.

We all know I love navy. So, I of course love this solid shade of navy for my nails!

I have always liked this shade of shimmery plum, it looks like more of a solid shade until you really look it. Which I think makes it a little more of a muted shade.

I don't wear red on my nails very much before or after Christmas time. Until I found this color, it looks like more of a  burgundy in the bottle. But I think it's a nice red, that is a little darker than a Christmas-y shade of red. 

I have been wearing this color since college, it has always been one of my favorites! It is a little muted for a metallic, and will match everything you wear with it.

Silk tops have always been a year-round favorite of mine, and I love the contrast of the tie-front detail on this one! I really like wearing this top to work with black pants, but I think it's just as fun with jeans to wear to dinner or drinks. I also love these velvet block heels, they're such a pretty shade of blush. I don't typically think that block heels are comfortable, but this pair is an exception! They are quickly becoming my favorite work heels, and I hope this style is made in other fabrics for spring.

I am all about wearing a sweatshirt with leggings and sneakers, but I also like to dress them up a little when I can! Which I am doing with this outfit, by pairing it with my OTK boots that I have worn on-repeat all fall and winter this year. And I'm not so subtly counting down to spring with white jeans. I took these photos when it wasn't quite winter yet in Charlotte, and I am missing that weather!

January Finds Under $50

Fringe top | Gray necklace | Red sunglasses | Striped sweater | Leopard print clutch | Black crossbody bag | Red statement earrings | Gold Mary Jane pumps

Finds Under $50 is back for 2018! I love to wear red during the winter, so I thought I would include a few fun red pieces like these sunglasses and fringe earrings. I am also a big fan of these gold heels, I think they would add a lot to a simple black dress. And as always, everything is under $50! It seems like a lot of retailers are starting to push out all of the winter clothes and accessories. Which is great, because a lot of it is on sale now. And, it means I can start to get excited about spring clothes!

Today is my 24th birthday! My birthday is the day after my dad's birthday, so we always celebrate together. And this year I had a great weekend at home with my family! I am always sad when the holiday season is over, but I feel like the season gets extended an extra 2 weeks with the placement on mine and my dad's birthdays. As I already mentioned in my annual favorite outfits post last week, 2017 and my 23rd year were both great, and I hope 2018 and age 24 is even better! Thank you to everyone who has followed along this past year!
