Black cap weekend wear

















A cap, t-shirt and chinos/cargo pants combination is probably my go-to weekend casual outfit, and I reckon I've been wearing variations of it for over 20 years... I think it started in the early Nineties because I wanted to look like Linda Hamilton in Terminator 2, minus all the weaponry (click here if you don't know the look I'm talking about).

And how excited was I to try magnetic nail polish for the first time?? It was so amazing I kept showing Mr. Summers each and every fingernail I painted ;) I love painting my nails and change my polish A LOT, but I never seem to have enough time to then go on and paint all these gorgeous patterns and effects I'm always Pinning. So to have it done for you in a special effects nail polish - that's a winner in my book!

(Anyone else tried magnetic nail polish?)

Happy Tuesday people!

  4. Great looking nails. I must admit, I love nail polish-- it SO finishes a "look" but have never tried special effects nails. Don't think I will. It's a step too far for me (timid mouse that I am!)

    Cheers,

  15. Are you wearing two scarves that you've twisted/plaited together? Gorgeous look - would love to know how to do it. :) I like how your accessories - shoes, jewelry, scarves - really add pep and polish to a simple outfit. :)
