Fall Nails:

I can't say I'm the biggest fan of Fall (give me beaches and bikinis over Pumpkin Spice Lattes any day), but I do get excited about switching from light and bright nail colors to deep and dark. The new Essie Fall 2015 collection is out (see the full collection sampled on this blog) and I was drawn to "Frock and Roll", but I felt like "In the Lobby" looked really similar to two others I've already owned: "Recessionista" and "Bahama Mama."  So I Googled and sure enough I found this comparison photo on Instagram:
Image via: @nailsbyarelisp (great account to follow for Essie fans!)

I got the mini 4 pack of the collection (which I can't find online!) so I'm going to have some duplicates anyway, but I wanted to pass along the scoop for other polish lovers who are debating which colors they want for fall and whether they already own something similar!


Jacket Dupe:

Speaking of similar products, I was walking through Target last week when I spotted this jacket:

And I thought it looked an awful lot like my French Terry jacket from Express:
Target MB Leisure Jacket vs. Express French Terry

The Target jacket felt quite a bit thinner and more flimsy than the Express version, but it could be a good option if you want something similar for a lower price point. I've worn my jacket (the Express version) a few times, and it might look more familiar from the top view:

Jacket: Express / Cami: Express (Exact color out of stock) / Necklace: Forever 21 / Shorts: J Crew / Sandals: Macy's / Sunglasses: Forever 21


Snapchat Trends:

First of all, a big apology for any of you who tried to follow me on Snapchat and wondered why I kept talking about it here but not posting anything. Apparently I had my settings so that only certain people could see me! Oops!! Sorry about that and thanks to Lauren for letting me know! Hopefully it's fixed and if you added me (@ontheDailyX) you can see me now.

Anyway, the last couple of weeks I have noticed some random trends in my feed!

1. Insomnia

Last week I watched three snaps in a row (from different people) who all posted in the middle of the night when they couldn't sleep.

Then go figure, the following night I couldn't sleep!! I guess it's the power of suggestion. But I didn't Snap about it because I've learned that getting on my phone when I can't sleep means I am never going back to sleep.

2. Tater Tots

This week three people (including myself!) Snapped about eating Tater Tots. I haven't really eaten these since elementary school and now I'm wondering if they're the new macarons?
PB Alehouse tater tots

Mine were from PB Alehouse for locals or tourists who want to try them! I saw another table get theirs with the sauce on the side (think In-N-Out burger sauce) and I'm definitely going that route when I go back.


3. What's in My Bag?
Once again, there was a three-peat in a single day of people I follow sharing the contents of their handbags. The focus was specifically lip products this time around, but I always love getting that kind of sneak peek into what other people use!
Via: Polyvore


I think the biggest Snapchat trend I noticed this week was everyone experimenting with the freaky face update! I still haven't been able to figure that one out so I didn't get to play along, but I doubt anyone is too sad about that.

That's it for today! Go out and enjoy some tater tots this weekend and I'll see you back here on Tuesday!

  1. haha love the snapchat trend section, I still have not worn my olive cami but it's been raining every single day for the past 2 weeks :/ Love that grey jacket from express, how cute when paired with pink.

    1. Glad you like the Snapchat trends! I want to do it regularly...if I continue to notice trends like I did this week!

  2. Yay a blogger who isn't rushing the fall season with outfit posts of ankle boots and long cardigans. I too love the beach and hot weather and all the clothes that go with along with it. Great picks on the polish though. Can't wait to try one of them. Love your style; keep rocking the camis and shorts as long as the weather permits!

    1. Haha, yeah, I just can't torture myself like that! September is usually the month in San Diego with the most days over 90* so it is still very summery here! Anytime I'm wearing a jacket in an outfit picture it's usually on and off all day depending on time of day and whether I'm in A/C or not!

  3. I love all of your outfits, but that's nothing new :-) That's good to know about the Essie colors. I hate when I bring home a new color and it is almost exactly the same as one I already have. And tater tots! My son loves them and we have them at least once a week. I'm getting kind of sick of them LOL

    1. Well you guys are way ahead of the tater tot trend at your house! ha ha! Now you just need to snapchat about it!

  4. Great find on the Target jacket, although I think the Express version looks a bit more polished. I've been noticing so many dupes at Target this season. I love tater tots and hope I can resist this trend. When I was out with my friends there was "a" tater tot on the appetizer menu. The waiter warned me that it really was "a" tater tot. One big one. That just didn't seem like as much fun and so I was able to resist. (And thank you for your continued supportive words on that subject). Love all the berry colors you're working into your fall wardrobe.

    1. I agree - the Express one is definitely a bit nicer than the Target jacket in person too! I also agree about the giant tater tot! That's no fun! They are named "tots" because they're (supposed to be) small. I'm a nerd and I looked that up. :)

  5. I love your last outfit with the pink cami and grey jacket! My daughter loves that freaky face update! Really creepy! I haven't had tater tots in years but that dish looks so yummy! Have a great weekend!

  6. Gina - What do you think about Express's new website feature that shows "available in store only" ? And with their clearance only being an additional 20% off instead of the usual 40%??? Both have stopped me from shopping online with Express (which I guess is a good thing for my bank account!) Love your blog!

    1. Hi there! As far as items marked "available in store"...I'm indifferent about it so far! I haven't seen anything I wanted that motivated me to go in-store or frustrated me because I want to place an online and couldn't get that specific item. If that changes in time I might have a different opinion! As far as clearance items, I was just chatting with someone on Instagram that it seems like Express has been less generous with their sales and promotions in general! I don't get nearly as many mailer coupons as I used to, and they don't seem to run as many Sale code promotions as they used to either! So I guess the Clearance thing goes in line with that, and generally that makes me sad! Like you said, it's probably a good thing because I spend less, but it's a bummer when there is stuff that I want and I'm not about to pay full price for it!

  9. I love that jacket. I actually received a similar style in my stitchfix last year and I love it! You have to style some more outfits with it so I get inspiration :) Have a great weekend girl and I want to see those faces on you...you probably noticed mine..so fun :)

  11. Yay!! I'm glad I wasn't the only one posting about tots this week! Haha!! Love the blue/black/wine combo the most of these. I almost did that combo today but it required steaming and I had zero time for that!! I finally figured out that the new snapchat features don't work unless you have the new iOS downloaded. At least that's what finally made it work for me! :)

    1. I won't lie, I totally picked that set for YOU! And you need to try Tater Tots if you're going to live in 'Merica!!

  16. I know what you mean - Tater Tots are so good and yet not eaten frequently enough. I was one of the folks who posted a what's in my bag post. When people carry large purses I wonder if I am the only one who carries so little. It was fun to read people's responses.

    1. Aren't those so fun? And I agree- tater tots are under-rated. Glad they're making a comeback!

  17. Wow, I really liked the jacket at Target, but totally missed that it looked like the Express version! Wine nail colors are always my favorite, love your Express bag and was also thinking of getting that color (I already have the black and the straw one), they are beautiful bags. Have a great weekend Gina :)

    1. I'm shocked that I found a Target dupe before you! That's definitely your area of expertise! :)

  18. I really miss your express at fashion valley! Mine is so limited! I looked for your grey jacket but sadly I couldn't find it. Maybe target will do? I love the looks of it, even though it's lighter in weight. Also, I sm loving darker nails too! Two weeks in a row wearing "Fall" shades. Can't wait to try frock n roll next time around since I decided on a wine color last night. And lastly, I know who was one of those people that showed her ungodly amount of lip products ;)

    1. Hee hee, you might have been a trendsetter on that one! I saw a couple of more people post their lip stuff after I posted this! It can't hurt to try on the Target jacket before deciding. :)

  19. I'm almost afraid to admit I only just learned what snapchat is, lol! I'll look you up if I work up the courage to look further into it.

    I'll admit I love the season transitions, and am always ready to embrace the new and different weather (and everything that accompanies that). I'm up in Northern California and the heat is wearing in me by September for sure. The wine/berry polish is gorgeous. I agree though, they slightly change the colors and give them a new name.

    I've had so much fun re-exploring Express thanks to your blog. I almost exclusively shopped there back in the early-mid 90's (hello huge tunics and cropped leggings). Luckily there are 3 stores within a reasonable distance, and I've checked them all out.

    1. Snapchat is still pretty new and it seems like it's really only caught on in the last year! It's not very intuitive but so fun once you get the hang of it! And I'm SO glad to hear you've given Express a second chance thanks to hanging around here!

  20. OMG those tater tots!!! Now I want some. I am a terrible snapchat. I just never seen to have things to post/say. I can;t keep up with all the social media (clearly I am getting old)! Love that ruffle hem top and your blue oxford with the darker jeans.

    1. Well hopefully the Snapchat trends section will give you some ideas for what to post! It's really anything goes and low stress...that's part of the fun of it!

  21. Oh man, those taters look heavenly!! What is that on top - some kind of chipotle aioli with scallions? I have to try making this at home!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I wasn't even sure what the sauce was exactly so I had to check the menu just now! It just says Russian dressing (no Chipotle, although that would be amazing!). And it has scallions + pickles! It was really good!

  22. I like the Fall season for the opportunity to wear something other than shorts and open toed shoes but who am I kidding..it's our rainy season and it's hell hot and humid here in S. Fl so we are lucky to get a few cool days come late November! I'm obsessed with your cami collection, I still only own 1 Barcelona cami from Express..I've got to up my game LOL

    1. Snapchat takes the very least amount of time of all the social media for me! (Well, Twitter would probably be similar but I never actually use Twitter!) Snapchat is fun and very low stress and low time commitment. :)
