#31DC2015: Inspired By a Song

Today we're posting looks that are inspired by a song. I don't think there was any choice for me. My song of the summer has been Sunday Candy by Donnie Trumpet & the Social Experiment. 



This song has been on repeat for me since it came out. It got better when Anna Kendrick sang the hook in an interview (LOVE ME SOME ANNA!). But the best part is that the incredibly talented Donnie Trumpet is my husband's cousin. The whole family is crazy proud of him and he's insanely talented. Not only do I recommend listening to this song if you don't know it, but check out the rest of the stuff he does with Chance. 

So not only do I love the song, I love the sets in the music video, which was all done in one shot. How cool is that? I pulled all of my inspiration from the music video. On my thumb I did the Sunday Candy Marquee, next is the Social Experiment logo from their letterman jackets, middle is the candies on the wall, ring is Jamila Woods shirt/necklace/cardigan combo, and my pinky is the purple and white walls in the candy shop. 








I used an insane amount of polish and acrylic paint for this look. I'll list them all out below. If you are curious about a color, just ask and I'm happy to help.

    1. You know I need to matte things more often, I think I forget about it as an option.
