Summer Pop!

denim overalls

Colour. Colour. Colour…

Topshop nail polish

Shades: Beacons Closet (found these look-a-likes or try purple mirrored Supers).  Lipstick: MAC Lady Danger (thx to the reader who recommended this).  Dungarees & lime yellow bikini top: H&M. (similar dungys or try one of these).  Nails: Celestial by Topshop. Necklace: Jennifer Zeuner (love her pieces). 

Last week Michael, Oliver and I did the summer pilgrimage upstate (previous trips shown here & here). While I go through hundreds of pictures, here’s quick ones.

Right now I am digging colours with a BANG!!

My neon mirrored glasses are from Beacons but these get the look. Kinda liking their blue ones too.

It’s a fast way to make outfits anything but boring.

  4. Emily Ulrich says:

    Everything about this is bright, shining perfection! I’m spellbound by the glossy color of those shades – remind me of a Marc Jacobs’ pair I’d seen on Shopbop. (And you even matched the lipstick, how rad.)

    • Karen says:

      Yes that’s the ones I linked to above! They are really similar to mine.

  5. FJ says:

    great sunglasses! awesome!

  8. megrady says:

    Awesome! I like how the colors compliment one another and how the yellow in the sunglasses matches the bikini top.

    • Karen says:

      The yellow in the shades is the reflection of the bikini top. It DOES look like it’s how the sunglasses actually are though I noticed in these pics!
