As the weather cools, I find myself on the hunt for loafers that are more appropriate for fall with darker colours and prints. With that said, I tried on the Python Penny Loafers by Nicholas Kirkwood last week and instantly "fell in love". Honestly though, shoes like these are a testament to craftsmanship and outstanding quality.
A transitional piece that has been taking centre stage in my wardrobe lately is the sleeveless turtleneck sweater. I have the Wilfred Durandal sweater, which I enjoy wearing either by itself or with a blouse underneath. Surprisingly, I have never purchased green nail polish, but thanks to the NARS/3.1 Phillip Lim collaboration, I am the new owner of Shutter, a dark forest green.
Thanks to my two vacations, I am tanned to the point where 1) I'm often surprised at my own skin colour when I look in the mirror and 2) my NARS tinted moisturizer needs to be two shades darker. The latter point brought me to the NARS counter last week, where I came across the above new nail colour by NARS. Normally, I gravitate towards classic reds (Jungle Red by NARS is a personal favourite), but recently, I've been converted to more natural/beige colours. With that said, I picked up this nail polish, aptly named after the Greek island Zakynthos. If I can't go back to Greece anytime soon, the least I can do is paint my nails in a colour that is reminiscent of my travels.
I promise this will be the last set of vacation photos, but scroll through for some postcards from Mexico. I may have slightly turned into a travel bug - next on my list are any of the following: Morocco, Peru, Croatia, and Italy (Capri). Here's to traveling again in the next couple of months!
