Seeing as the Olympics are in full swing I thought it might be fun to do a blog inspired by the games–particularly those covetable golden medals. Since summer is winding down, it’s time to start thinking transitionally. One of my favorite accents to wear this time of year is gold. I like to sprinkle it into my looks by adding a gilded hairpiece or glossing my nails with a sparkly golden polish. It’s a finish that works well for both summer and fall, which is why it is such a lovely, transitional choice for this time of year.
All you need is a little pop of sparkle to make an otherwise simple outfit truly shine. Whether it’s the line of an eye, the glow of a sun kissed cheek, the sparkle of an unexpected barrette or the gleam of a golden nail, adding a Midas touch is never a bad idea…
Are you going for the gold?

P.S. Out of curiosity, what’s your favorite event to watch during the summer Olympics? I love gymnastics and diving 🙂
