I did something today that I haven’t done in probably fifteen years. I went to the nail salon, and I had all of the SNS polish soaked off of my nails, and then I cut them down almost to the quick. I love long nails, but I am terrible at making time and going to the nail salon. I needed my nails done before I went to Myrtle Beach, but I couldn’t find the time. Joe told me to go to a salon while I was at the beach, but I hate going to someone new, so I decided to wait.
If you notice in this picture, you see me trying to hide my pointer fingers. That would be because I broke one of them before I came home from the beach, and then I ripped off the other one this morning. I had already decided to quit putting SNS, acrylic, or gel on my nails, but I hadn’t planned on getting them cut so short. My nails were long, but since I broke the two off so short, I cut the rest of them off to match. Here is the funny part…I can’t type now. Ashleigh thinks it is hilarious that I could type with long nails, and now that my nails are short, I am taking forever to get my typing done. So, how about you, ladies? Have any of you ever decided to go cold turkey on having long nails? I told you they were super short.
The Fairisle pattern is gorgeous, and I especially love the colors of this sweater. I am not as big a fan of the brightly colored Fairisle sweaters as I am the toned-down versions like this one. The medium gray backdrop is perfect for the deep teal and bright white pattern. Neutrals have been my jam this fall and winter, and I can’t get enough of gray especially. But, this pattern adds some spice to the sweater to keep it from looking too blah. The ribbing at the cuffs, neck, and hemline is a nice touch, and it helps the sweater to fit better. The ribbing at the hemline allows you to position the sweater to create to draped effect, or you can pull it down for a sleeker look. I am wearing a medium, which is what I usually wear if I order from The Loft or the Loft Outlet. This sweater is part of the huge sale that is ongoing, and here is the link.
You might remember this deep teal corduroy pair of pants from this post back in early November. It is funny that I wore them with a Fairisle sweater back then also. I sent back the pair from the older post because they were too small, and I reordered them a size bigger. I have learned that when I purchase from the Time and Tru brand that I need to size up one size unless it is a stretchy pant. Here is the link to the pants.
Today I wanted to elongate my legs, so I decided to wear a pair of nude pumps that I have had for years. This is a pair of Michael Kors nude pumps that I bought in Tennessee. I don’t wear them often because they are about a half size too big. I wanted to see if I could add something to the back of the heel to make them fit tighter because I love these shoes. Nude shoes can be worn with anything, so you get lots of wear from a pair.

There are only a few days left in this year. I am trying to reach my goal of 50,000 Instagram followers before the by January 1st. It is almost impossible, especially with the new changes that Instagram has made. But, it is only impossible until it’s done. SO, if you are following me, then tag a friend.
