Style: Obsessed: July

Well, this post is a little late. How on earth is it July already? Mid-July, at that? I don't know about you, ladies and gents, but the thought of our summer being half over makes me want to shed a tear and try as hard as I possibly can to find a way to pause time.

...now that my dramatic little sob story is over, it's time for July obsessions.

While I'm a little heartbroken at the thought of summer going by so quickly, I'm swooning over glitter nail polish all day, every day. Seriously, there is no better time than summer to rock glitter on your nails (and toes). My favorite right now is Essie's Beyond Cozy. The name itself makes me want to cozy up underneath a flannel blanket and make s'mores around the camp fire (one of my all-time favorite summer activities). And the color is subtle enough for me to wear at work, yet fun enough for a summer night spent on one of my favorite Minneapolis rooftops. Loving it.

Next on the list? Those adorable natural crochet Toms. Jack bought me a pair for our anniversary, and I swear, my feet have barely left them ever since. They are beyond comfortable, and give any outfit (I repeat, any outfit) that "summer" vibe. I'm not sure how I'll be able to put these bad boys away come fall.

My current read? Pride & Prejudice. Ladies, if you haven't read this gem yet, by golly, I think you're in for a treat. Pride & Prejudice has always been one of my favorite novels, and I'm swooning over it even more this month, because Jack and I are seeing it live at the Guthrie Theater! "Excited" doesn't even begin to describe my emotions. A night at the theater with the man of my dreams (and Mr. Darcy)? Yes PLEASE.

Since the beginning of July, I've gone back to the center part. I gave it up for a little while (mostly due to a lack of confidence) but have decided that, at least for now, this look is here to stay. My inspiration? The always-chic Lily Aldridge. Let's get real, the girl has gorgeous hair and a style to die for. Am I obsessed? Absolutely.

Last but certainly not least, Neutrogena Clear Face Liquid Lotion Sunscreen. In the summer, I frequently forget how important skincare and sun care is. But this easy-to-wear sunscreen makes my routine a little bit easier. It's super lightweight and does not cause breakouts. I'm hooked (thanks Mom for the great recommendation)!

Have a great Tuesday, loves!
