Wedding Nails and Vintage Things

Vintage green and gold ring


Ulta Professional polish in Green with Envy


A hard topped, vintage clutch

Hope everyone had a great weekend! I had a wedding to go to on Saturday, and needed to paint my nails desperately. I already had this Ulta polish and was wearing a black strapless dress, so I thought the green would go nicely. I've been going a bit crazy with my nail looks lately - chucks of glitter, hearts, nail stickers, etc so this color looked...tame.

I love mixing new and old items with my wardrobe. I'm a sucker for jewelry, especially vintage jewelry. This ring and unique clutch were given to me by my great aunt before she passed away. I always admired her accessories - classic, timeless, beautiful items that would pull her look together. Even in her later years, she would come to our family parties with exquisite pearl necklaces, broaches and rings. I was fortunate enough to be given this ring and clutch, and always smile when I wear them. I like thinking about how each item traveled through the world before it got to me. In addition - they are great conversation starters!
