Week O’Nautical: Ocean Blue Mani

Week O'Nautical:  Ocean Blue Mani

Week O’Nautical: Ocean Blue Mani

Week O’Nautical is ‘licia language for my way to countdown to patriotic holidays with all things red, white and blue with a nautical take.  Why nautical?  Because its beachy and long summer weekends should be as beachy as possible.  Usually its a way to get through the work week when really you’re already checked out for the long weekend.  However, 2020 threw us for a loop and instead of my wear to work posts its all about the home life this year.  What hasn’t changed… manis!  This May I’ve been really into blues.

Inspired by this Blue Ombre ring from Avon in oceanic blues I couldn’t decided on which blues to do.  I ended up going with Essie Lapis of Luxury with an accent nail in Borrowed & Blue.  These shades are few of my oldies but goodies!

I really love blue mani’s for spring and summer, plus they go really well with patriotic ootd’s.  I know I’ll be doing another one by the time actual MDW roles around but I can gurantee it will probably be a shade of blue.

Well, this shelter in place/work from home lifestyle doesn’t really mix with my business casual wardrobe. However, it does allow me to reintroduce myself to my jeans and tees. I picked up a few new casual pieces from Avon that will mix and match with my wardrobe, including this striped tee from Avon.

The Avon 3/4th Sleeve Lace Front Top is only $29.99 and comes in 4 colors.  I went with the black and white stripe.  I love that this has a relaxed fit, 3/4th sleeve and some lace front detailing to give it a little something.  This top looks good with jeans and cardi but also with leggings and top knot!  PERFECT for shelter in place/wfh.

I paired this with my white jeans and a red cardigan sweater (both killer finds from Ross Dress For Less).  This OOTD was perfect for my work from home day, then a visit to my family to celebrate my niece’s birthday.  Having a birthday during this coronavirus isn’t ideal, but we had a great pancake brunch at home to celebrate her day complete with some Avon sheet masks and fun drinks!

I hope everyone is staying happy and healthy!  If you need a little pick me up I highly reccomend this tee and some sheet masks.  Both you can use during the shelter in place time, and after!  There’s a ton of new arrivals over at the eBoutique so be sure to check them out!
