Hot pink nail polish: Chanel 519 Rose Exuberant // Gold nail polish: Sonia Kashuk 31 Golden Ticket

After trying a black manicure with reverse ombre last week, I wanted to give it a more colorful update to kick off the springtime weather we’re having this week. It feels fun enough for a fashion blogger and professional enough to werk for work. Color me obsessed!

How are you prepping for spring? I have found myself gravitating towards pretty pops of color, and I’m itching to add some pastel to my closet. Pretty faboosh that the black and white “trend” we all know I embrace so lovingly is extra conducive to colorful accessorizing! Loving my staple pieces even more this season.

Autumn is a season of change. In my home state, temperatures drop and daylight grows scarce enough to encourage deciduous trees to explode in a burgundy and sienna symphony. In San Francisco, we get rain, some vibrant sunsets and full poetic fashion license to express ourselves with the hottest trends and a heavy dose of individuality.

This fall, oxblood is huge, and so on point. Call it wine, burgundy, bordeaux — I’ve even heard rouge — whatever the name, this deep, dark rose color still is as sweet. The rich, enveloping undertone sets the stage for a warmly accessorized season. Try these fun pieces to add a little pop to your staples. I paired it with black and white, my go-to outfit, but some mixed prints of the same burgundy color family would make a great weekend ensemble for the bold fashionista.

No matter how you say it or style it, this color is sure to be a superb sartorial addition this season. Stock up on accessories and you can’t go wrong. They’ll pair and mix with ease!
