Peach Jeans Outfit Ideas

Hello everyone...

Apologies for being away for such a long time, but I am back now...and I have a fashion  post for you today....

I picked up this lovely pair of jeans from a couple of months ago but was waiting for right weather to wear this. Since we finally had some good weather last week, they got a chance to go out. 

This is a fun and feminine pair of jeans with lovely polka dot print and spring/summer perfect colour. This is a part of Gap skimmer jeans range.

Outfit 1 : I think when paired with a chiffon top, it just looks ultra-feminine and the top does not take any attention away from the jeans...
Top : Primark (Old)
Jeans: Gap (here)
Shoes : M&S (similar here)

Outfit 2 : This is a classic way to wear any coloured jeans. Paired with neutrals...I think blazer gives structure and makes the whole look quite chic and edgy w/o taking much away from our focal point...
Jacket/Blazer: H&M (here)
Jeans: Gap (here)
Shoes : Matalan (here)

Outfit 3 : I have tried to pair it with something other than neutrals here.I am not quite happy with the photographs for this outfit. I think mint green colour of the jumper looked much better in person.
Jumper: Gap (here)
Jeans: Gap (here)
Shoes : M&S (similar here)

What do you think? Which outfit did you like the most?

NOTD: Jelly Sandwich Nails

Hello everyone,

A quick NOTD post today....This is something that I did a few weeks ago, but for some reason never posted it. Jelly sandwich nails have been very popular for quite some time now, but I never got around to trying it.. until now...and I am so happy with the results.

I am sure I don't need to explain this, but still for those of you who don't know, jelly sandwich nails are nothing but glitter polish sandwiched between sheer polish. The sheer polish at the top mutes the glitter and creates a kind of  speckled effect. This is perfect for me as I can wear it to work without worrying about it appearing over-the-top.

Polishes I used here are Sally Hansen Nearly Nude from its French manicure kit and Model's Own Ibiza Mix from their hedkandi collection. After using my Sally Hansen Base Coat, I applied two sheer coats of Sally Hansen Nearly Nude Polish and then one coat of Ibiza Mix followed by one coat of  Nearly Nude again. Ibiza Mix is quite dense multi-coloured glitter and one coat is enough for this effect... This is one of my favourite glitter nail polishes and applied like a dream...

Let me know what you think....
