shift to neutral.

HAPPY JULY!

If you’re like us, you really put on the color during spring and summer months. Let’s face it, we live in neutrals the rest of the year (ask L about her black v-neck sweater…)

With all of this color being worn we need a solid, natural manicure to avoid clashing (the horror.) Here are some nude hues we’re feeling:

OPI Do You Take Lei Away?

friday five: link love.

Happy Friday! This weekend, J’s doing a trial run for wedding hair and makeup (EEEK!) and L’s working in the retail game, but we’re both going to make time to watch a little of the Masters and sip an Azalea Cocktail. In the meantime, take a few minutes to check out these links to stuff we love.

it’s friday, we’re in love…

1. Masters Party Guide. Having some friends over to watch the tourney? We gave you some suggestions yesterday, but this is a more thorough post from the guys at Criquet.

2. Jack Rogers at Sole. We’re suckers for classic Jack Rogers sandals, and now they’re available here! Bonus: The girls at Sole are giving away a pair. You heard us! Enter the giveaway here.

3. Flat Iron Waves. Tis the season for beachy waves! This is a great, easy-to-understand (even for the hair-challenged) tutorial.

4. Banana Palm Pillow. Give your couch  or pool house chaise a spring update with these adorbs pillows. Bonus if you set yours up in front of a vintage VW van.

5. Essie Bachelorette Bash. You know we paint our nails every Friday. J gave her bridesmaids this bright, happy hue during our bachelorette weekend in NYC. Love love love!

We couldn’t decide which way we liked this top best: tucked in or out. Normally we’re tucking in, but we really like the flowy lines created when left untucked. Which look do you like best?
