What I Wore … and some winter nail care tips

What I Wore and some winter nail care tipsHey y’all! I’m finally jumping back in with a What I Wore Wednesday post … it’s been crazy around here and I have meant to share more of my outfits but since most nights I’m sitting in a gym wearing a “cheer mom” shirt of some sort, I suppose you haven’t missed much. LOL

But I have managed to wear colors besides black and gold in the past week so I thought I’d share what I’ve worn for a few exciting things happening around here. And I’m thrilled to be partnering with JULEP to share some winter nail care tips. {While JULEP did not pay me for sharing this information, I have included affiliate links for JULEP and several other shops in this post.}

Last Friday night I was honored to share one of my favorite Christmas-themed talks at a women’s event in a nearby community. In 2011 I wrote a series for the blog titled “Have Yourself a Mary Little Christmas” and since then I’ve loved encouraging women with a talk based on those posts. This is what I wore to speak …

Another fun thing that has happened lately is being interviewed for an article in a local magazine. I’ll share more details about all of that when I can but suffice it to say, figuring out what to wear for the photos was more stressful than the actual interview!! Ha! They wanted pictures of me the way I normally look when I’m writing … and somehow I felt like they didn’t REALLY want me in my yoga pants and one of Scott’s sweatshirts so, this is what I wore.

And then there are the days when I manage to get out of my sweats but still want to be comfy and I end up in outfits like this …

I love this look … what isn’t to love about a sweater and layered scarves with some flare jeans? You can’t see them but I’m wearing my cute leopard flats.

I mentioned Monday I’d had been called a fashion blogger recently and how fun that is. I’m thrilled to be partnering with JULEP for this post and sharing some tips for winterizing your nails. Check out this great infographic the genius people at JULEP created.

Winterize Your Nails {tips from JULEP}These are great ideas and I’ve definitely been using them since my skin seems to drying out just like my hair! I also love knowing what the popular nail polish colors are for this season and thankfully JULEP gathered them up for me.  You can check out all of their fabulous nail colors here.

I love the color “Joanne” … and I found something close in our huge basket of nail polish so I painted my nails {with some silver to accent my ring finger!} and I love the way it looks with my navy sweater.

So, thanks to JULEP for giving me {and all of you!} some great information. Just out of curiosity, do you keep your nails painted during the winter?

Happy Wednesday!
