Go Brown or Go Home

 This Fall, there are a number of chic nail polish colors to choose from when picking your hue.  The trouble is that not all of them are work appropriate.  I don’t know what my Boss would say if I wore teal or bright orange on my tips, but I imagine it wouldn’t be positive.  

Luckily, my favorite Fall trend, brown nail polish, is neutral enough for most workplaces.  It all depends on which shade you choose.

Myself, I like a little shimmer, so I’ll be rocking Espresso and All Hail McQueen.  I also love the sable shade, Prince Charming.  And for the chocoholics in the room, Suzi Says Da! is the perfect just-dark-enough shade.

So if you’re bored of baby pink and not ready for bright red, trade in your traditional polishes for a shade of brown.  It’s accessible, on trend and the perfect compliment to any skin tone.

    My current favorite is called Tea and Crumpets by Essie…it's a very light brown, almost nude, and so perfect for the office!

Shopbop’s Best Slight-Splurges

Recently, I decided to stop buying so much fast fashion. True, some of my favorite pants and dresses came from Old Navy and H&M, and there’s nothing wrong with snagging a deal on something you’ll really wear. But I’m moving into spring with a new shopping mentality.

My Best Amazon Fashion Finds
