Since we are on such a polish kick, here is another cute way to add a splash of color to your life... and your iPhone. While it may not be the most protective cover, this Chanel inspired iPhone case is the perfect pal for a perfectly polished fashionista. Available in your color of choice via Etsy, $9.99.
From coral to carnelian, orange makes a strong first impression. A dash of sweet citrus brightens up any outfit making orange a summer necessity and a reason to go with something other than red. Try with a great pair of open toed sandals and you'll instantly be orange you glad you did.
