Black Cap Weekend Wear

2012-07-04 Not Dressed As Lamb 001

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!

    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. 🙂

    great outfit. I especially love the sneakers and the polish. As always, you manage to take so many different items and combine them into one stunning outfit.
