I haven't done an outfit of the day post in a while, so I thought I would do one today. I actually have a few outfits to show you guys now. I am trying something new. As John's set up of photography toys grows, he now has a plain backdrop. You know something he can use for product shots for Cult Nails. But why use it so I can take quick pics of what I am wearing too? Although, I have to admit the natural backdrop in today's photos is WAY better. I pass this spot on my way to work everyday, the only problem is that it is pitch black when I leave my house in the morning and by the time I get out of work, it's time to run home for whatever we may have going on in the house. But using John's new backdrop, I think I might be able to take more outfit of the day pictures. Let's see if I can make that happen. This was Monday's outfit of the day for running around for what we thought was going to be a few errands and a lunch date. Instead we had to bring Kat to Urgent Care, because as soon as we finished taking these photos, our cell rang, she got bit by a spider and her leg was swelling. Turns out she is just fine, but her leg is definitely infected. She had to go on antibiotics and we'll have to keep an eye on it for a few days, but it should be fine. So much for a lunch date. LOL

I made this color a while ago when I was still trying to figure out what I wanted for my Fall colors. In the end I ended up finding some pretty similar colors to this one, and another line was putting out a very similar color for Fall, so I decided not to go with this one. I put on one coat right before leaving the house and topped it with Wicked Fast top coat, but I probably could have used a second coat. I still love this color and keep wearing it, so it may make it's way into the line one day anyway. Let's see.
It was a nice long weekend for us here, and it rained like crazy all weekend. Monday the sun came out and the water was super flat. It looked so pretty.
