We’re way into patterns and prints this fall! And the pattern on our Orlla blouse is the perfect combo of classic yet fresh with those stripes and unexpected boxes . This is the kind of piece I’m planning my whole look around…right down to my nails! Check out below to see how we created super easy nail art inspired by this fab pattern!

There are officially 30 days left before fall starts! Sad, I know. We’re all in a frenzy making plans to squeeze in those last moments of summer. Check out what we have going on for the next 30 days!
Tori, Operations – “I want to get all my DIY projects done that I bought supplies for, so I have a couple weeks left to wear those tie-dyed shorts! Also, I really want to go to the zoo and have a picnic before summer is over!”
Gabby, Operations - ”I won’t let summer slip away before spending another weekend boating out around the wild of Bainbridge Island. It’s the perfect way to see the city, the sound, the mountains and the majesty that is the NW! Toot-toot beep-beep.”
Chelsea, E-commerce - “I have an action packed end to summer planned out since its totally likely that we only have a few more sunny weeks left. This weekend is camping and a river float, next weekend is a trip to the San Juans for more camping and SAILING!”
I don’t know about you guys, but it takes A LOT for me to step outside of the box when it comes to my makeup. I wear the same combination of bronzer, winged eyeliner and mascara anywhere I go. I mean, it has to be a pretty fancy night for me to even break out the eyeshadow! However, there’s one fall makeup trend that caught my interest for it’s simplicity and versatility. Loving the fresh look of a bare, “makeup-less” face (yeah right…), lashes for days, and a deep red lip. Basic enough to pull off in the day with confidence and I can’t even handle how chic this would be with a top-knot for a night out.
For makeup success, I recommend evening out your skin tone with something light like a tinted moisturizer, unless you are one of those people with naturally gorgeous skin, which I would totally envy you for. Go minimal on the bronzer/blush, if any, no liner, and plenty of mascara to add length. Then get on that dark lip color. I’m using Revlon Lip Butter (obsession!) in Sugar Plum! Check out my attempt. A little more real-life-friendly then the runway version, but still packs a punch!
I love the way blogger Rachel from Jag Lever pairs our gold lace romper with chunky boots and an oversized hat. She definitely wins the gold for the perfect summer to fall look!
Yes… I know I’m way late with the whole Olympics thing, seeing as it’s already over. But I’m not over it! I STILL haven’t seen the closing ceremonies. Did anyone DVR it? Can I come over, raid your fridge, and watch it?
Maybe some other time then.
