July Favorites

This has been one of the best summers I can remember in my city. It’s been so nice for so long that I’m almost starting to take for granted that it’ll be sunny and clear everyday. Let’s be serious though, I live in the Pacific Northwest. This weather isn’t going to last! Here’s what I’ve been loving in the sun for the month of July.


OPI My Chihuahua Bites has been my go to polish for the month of July. I’ve actually had this colour rolling around my nail polish bin for years (like years) and had forgotten all about it. I rediscovered it during a bout of spring cleaning and am now head over heels back in love with this shade. It falls somewhere between true red and coral and looks amazing with a tan. It’s quite well pigmented but to get a really rich colour I’d recommend two to three coats.


MAC Coral Bliss was an impulse buy. I went to MAC in search of a brow pencil and walked out with this summery pale coral. It was love at first sight and now I cannot get enough of this lipstick. It’s one of their cremesheen finishes which are always light, moisturizing and a little bit glossy. It’s perfect for those days when you want a hint of colour without looking too done up.


Club Monaco Minkie Lace Back Top is by far my most worn item of the summer. I’m always on the look out for pieces like this. It’s comfortable and easy to wear but looks more delicate and styled than a plain cotton t shirt. I love the lace detailing on the back and shoulder panels. I’ve been wearing this top so much, I may need to get another one to keep as a back up!
