How awesome is the Mossimo Kalea boot? I just picked up a pair from Target and I must say, they’re not just good-looking—they’re comfy, too. I love the southwestern cowgirl style. The upper feels like denim and the bottom is, of course, faux leather.
My last trip to the mall yielded the most amazing accessory I’ve seen in months: this luxe peacock ring from Icing. (Thanks, Mom!!)
Gorgeous, huh? It’s such a statement piece and it’s only about $13—not bad at all for such an ornate piece of jewelry!
This peacock ring is now out of stock online, but you can shop more awesome accessories through the Icing website.
I finally spotted the new Wet n Wild Fergie nail polishes at Walgreens—but let me warn you, if you’re hunting for the display, snap up any colors while you can: the displays are emptying out FAST and there’s no word on whether these polishes will move to a permanent fixture anytime soon!
I managed to scoop up three bottles of the limited edition polish, shown here. There are a couple dozen shades on the rack, from brights to glitters to metallics, but these are the three that really caught my eye: Grammy Gold, Glamorous, and Tonight’s Gonna Be A Good Night.
If you can find them, the WNW Fergie nail polishes retail for about $3.49. (Check out the Walgreens website to find a store near you.)
Since today is Independence Day, I thought I’d experiment with some American flag nail art.
First, I started with a layer of base coat and three thin coats of white nail polish. This gave me a nice, solid background for the flag. Make sure you let each coat dry thoroughly before applying the next one; if your nails still feel tacky when you touch them together, give them more time.
Next, I added a small square of navy blue in the lower left-hand corner of each nail. You might need to apply two coats to get a nice, deep blue.
Once that was done, it was time to add the stars and stripes. I used a $3 angled eyeliner brush from E.L.F. to add the small white dots for “stars” on each nail. For the stripes, any true red will do. Again, if you need to do so, use two coats to make sure the red is deep and the white “stars” really pop.
Finish it all off with a couple of coats of clear top coat to protect and add shine, and you’re done! Investing in a good top coat is worth the extra $$$ when you’ve spent so much time creating artwork on your fingertips.
Happy Fourth of July, everybody! Check out more American flag nail art on Pinterest.
Summer was made for the maxi dress, and maxi dresses were made for summer. They make great casual pieces to throw on for brunch or a day of errands, cover you up going to and from the beach, and with wedges and some bracelets, they can even go out to dinner and a movie later in the day. Here are seven cute maxi dresses (all under $30) to brighten your summer:

Need a little pick-me-up this Monday morning? Check out these wild wedges from Payless—they’re guaranteed to put a spring in your step!
Nice, huh? I could see these wild wedges with everything from skinny jeans to sundresses. And with so much color, you can slack off a little on the rest of your outfit—shoot, you can wear head-to-toe black if you like—and still look ready for the party. FYI: they also come in black, ivory, cobalt, and fuchsia, just in case you’re not feeling the wild pattern!
