the weather outside is... chilly

i have a new favorite nail color. i'm seriously in love with it... maybe a tad bit obsessed. i got it for christmas but just got around to painting my nails with it yesterday. all i've been doing since is staring at my nails... seriously!
i even thought how nice it looked against the magenta yarn i was knitting with.
...yeah, i said it.

i've noticed this once before but since it happened again today i thought i'd mention it. after painting my nails with this awesome color (chinchilly: a sleek granite gray) it's definitely on the brain. when i got dressed this morning i realized that i had, subconsciously, matched my outfit to my nail color. i'm wearing my norm of all black but with a gray striped tank... even put gray socks on this morning. is that weird? cause i don't think so!

so here's a quick pic of my nails...

as you can see it's a bit darker than in the picture from their website. it's an amazing color. it will look fab in the summer when i have a bit more color to my skin  ;)

here's the color on deck:

pictures to follow if i'm equally in love with it!

both were purchased here


holy smokes!

if you haven't already, i suggest that you head over to sydneys blog and have a laugh... or five. she's a student/comedian/fashionista. i love all of her outfit posts but my favorite are her awkward & awesome thursdays. seriously people, go over and look... now!

i'm honored that sydney is wearing my very own friday harbor beanie in her latest outfit post, yay! she really did pick out the perfect color, it looks great on her. see for yourself...
