Almost at the End

For those of you out there who are still with me I want to offer up my thanks. It's been a while since I've posted and I'm hoping to get back to blogging within a few weeks. This is just a little update to let you know I'm still here, but just really busy.
I'm graduating in less than three weeks (yay!) but that also means final projects will be due soon. I'm up to my ears in essays and papers. I'm also starting a new part-time position this week at our town newspaper (double yay!). Needless to say I've been a busy gal.
So bare with me just a little longer. I'm hoping to at least get a nail polish blog up to you here and there (and maybe and outfit-of-the-day for my first day at my new job).
You all are great :)

Polished Up Tuesday: Sally Hansen's Peachy Keen

Out of all the neutral colors in my collection, this polish from Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure line is my favorite. It gives a soft wash of color on my nails and it is not completely opaque (making the look more natural). This polish is in the shade Peachy Keen. It gives smooth and easy application with the brand's large brush. The staying power for this line is also phenomenal. Even without a base or top coat it lasts on my nails for almost a week without any chipping. The look above took three coats to achieve. I usually only apply two coats for everyday wear, but today I wanted the camera to pick up the true shade of the polish.

Fall Neutrals

I feel like it's been forever since I've done an outfit post. I just made it past the middle of the semester and was it ever crazy! Papers, presentations and midterms have taken up most of my time these past few weeks. But the good news? I graduate in 6 weeks! :-D
Today I gravitated toward the neutrals in my closet and put together this ensemble. I love this past-the-knee skit because it keeps my legs warm in the cooler weather. I also like the combination with the sheer cream blouse and thick, braided, brown belt. I finished the look with my favorite fall accessory: boots!

P.S. I broke out the Christmas music this weekend! I couldn't help it, Christmas is my favorite :)

What I'm Wearing: 
Blouse: Daily Look
Skirt: Old Navy
Boots: a.n.a (JCP)
Belt: NY&Co.
Ring: Forever 21
Earrings: JCP
Watch: Relic (JCP)
