August Nights

August means the start of Fall for many people across the country. For us it means 100 degrees instead of 114 degrees (hopefully). We have put together a few looks for that back to school shopping itch.

Look 1: Hanging poolside

Fish and Archer headband $60.00, we show the handmade piece as a necklace but it can be worn in the hair or draped over the wrist. Colcci Tunic $75.00, this tunic is a transitional piece. Wear it in the summer with shorts and transition to the Fall with skinny jeans and boots.

Look 2: Errand Running

The dreaded errand running. I am always in a pickle of what to wear to run errands, what if I see someone and I am dressed in Juicy pants and a tank? I never want to seem over dressed but always want to be in that cool in between, "Oh, this? Just something I found in the back of my closet." This Colcci denim dress $122.00, does just that. Accessories small tri-color circle necklace, $32.00. Long necklace $120.00

Look 3: Casual Friday

Most offices in AZ observe summer hours. This ensemble is the perfect look for those casual Fridays followed by drinks at The Vig. Splendid Lilac Halter dress, $77.50. MK2K Cardigan, $68.40. Nolan LA Gemstone necklace, $52.00

Look 4: Weekend Dinner

This Amanda Uprichard dress, $124.60 makes dressing for dinner easy. The fuchsia color is so striking and the ruffles add a simple texture to the dress. Pair this dress with gold sandals or a nude pump. The accessories: "Cartier" Long necklace, $80.00 and "Yurman" small necklace $21.60.

Erin Young, is one of the many friendly faces at Sundrops Nail Spot. Erin is our receptionist and Boutique assistant. We asked Erin a few questions about herself, so you can get to know her better.

What is your favorite treatment at Sundrops?

I love the Island Indulgence pedicure. The smell is amazing!

In this dry climate my feet tend to get dry. I rub Vaseline on my feet nightly and wrap them in socks. I wake up to soft feet.

What is your favorite clothing line?

I really like Theory and Splendid. Theory for the tailored look and Splendid for the soft t-shirts. I love anything comfortable and trendy. Another favorite of mine is American Apparel.

What is your go-to nail polish color?

I typically like to experiment with my nail color. So I don't particularly have a favorite color, my favorite collection is the Essie Neon .

What inspires you?

Trying new things and meeting new people.

What question do you get asked all the time?

Is that your real eye color?
