Perfect Pairings: Laura Pensack

Perfect Pairings is a series where we ask our favorite bloggers to pair their favorite Scotch Naturals polishes with their favorite outfits. Today Laura Pensack, of Styled By Laura Jane, shares with us her favorite looks that can be worn now or into next season. We love the creativity of Laura’s outfits and we think you will too!

I’m a girl who loves color, texture, and layers. The more color that I can add to an outfit, the happier I am. And nail polish is the perfect way to add the splash of color (or sparkle) to even the most basic of outfits.

Laura Pensack's Charmer

Since this outfit is heavy in texture and details, I thought it would be best to keep the nail polish light and neutral. This color is a fun neutral since it’s shiny. And yes, it’s totally okay to mix a silvery metallic with gold metallics.

Laura Pensack's Canal Street Daisy

Finding an accent color in a patterned shirt is a perfect way to choose your nail polish color, like I did here. The pink flower on the shirt and this nail polish match perfectly and compliment the otherwise cool-toned outfit.

Laura Pensack's widow woods nightcap

Again, I love picking out one color from a patterned shirt to use as the accent color. This time I chose to accent the purple hue. This outfit is a fun example of how you can mix any an all neutral colors. There’s no need to stick to just brown or just black, especially when a colored patterned shirt pulls it all together.

In The Spirit Of Love

eco-chic valentine's day

In the spirit of love, enjoy an eco-chic Valentine’s Day with these essentials:

1. The latest issue of Prevention magazine shares research proving that a bouquet of roses offers many health benefits. Their scent, whether fresh or an essential oil, can be used for easing stress, grief and sadness.

2. Vered Organic Botanicals’s Deep Citron perfume is a subtle, sensual scent with touches of citron, sage and jasmine. It’s described as being wrapped in a cashmere blanket while sipping cognac by a fire (yes, please).

3. Our Bitter N Twisted is a brooding black cherry creme color that is perfect for Valentine’s Day that exudes femininity without over doing it.

4. Pascal Doquet’s champagne features quality, complexity and texture. The winemaker’s dedication to wine and organic farming is apparent offering uncompromising standards.

5. Treat yourself with something from Between The Sheets. We are loving this Arabesque set that captures the essence of temptation.

6. 99 Red Balloons from Ilia Beauty is a straight forward classic red lip crayon packed with healing oils of sesame, rose hip and papaya.

7. Indulging in chocolate is part of the Valentine’s Day charm. For a sweet bite try Sex Bark, a quick and easy recipe from Goop. Plus, it features beneficial ingredients like cacao, ghee and coconut oil.
