Casual Valentine

Whether you are in a relationship or a single gal, I think today’s outfit is a super fun way to dress up for a casual Valentine’s Day date without being too literal.  Plus, I warmly welcome any holiday that gives me an excuse to wear a pair of favorite statement pumps.  And because lace up pumps are going to be such a major trend for Spring and Summer this year, I’ve linked a few of my favorites below!DSC_3970 DSC_3922 DSC_3951 DSC_3929 DSC_3924 DSC_3973 DSC_3956 DSC_3996 DSC_3982 DSC_4001Jacket: Nordstrom (tried and true favorite!) | Top: cabi (if you are interested in ordering this top, I can put you in touch my cabi stylist-just leave a comment below!) | Skinnies: 7 for all mankind | Scarf: scarves.net c/o | Cuff: Stella & Dot | Rings: Kendra Scott | Sunnies: Karen Walker c/o Ditto (try them for one month free with code ALLDOLLEDUPBLOG at checkout!) | Pumps: Jeffrey Campbell (sold out), similar, also love these, these, these, and these

Hope you are all having a wonderful week!

Nude

Nude and neutral tones are totally my jam this season.  And this blazer?  It is so cute with the peplum back.  I seriously can’t say enough good things about it. Because if there is one thing I really love, it’s a great fitting, unique jacket with a price tag that doesn’t break the bank (it also comes in black and is only $51!).DSC_3672 DSC_3673 DSC_3709 DSC_3675 DSC_3682 DSC_3710 DSC_3698 DSC_3754 DSC_3747 DSC_3733 DSC_3762Blazer: Lookbook Store c/o (also comes in black!) | Sequin Top: JCrew (on sale!) | Skinnies: AG Farrah | Sunnies: Karen Walker c/o Ditto (try them for one month free with code: ALLDOLLEDUPBLOG at checkout!) | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff | Pumps: Jeffrey Campbell (sold out), almost identical, also love these

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Creature Comforts

I was just telling a girlfriend of mine last night that when I started blogging, it made me realize what a creature of habit I am.  I tend to gravitate towards the same types of items and the same kinds of outfits.  So being a blogger has been a great way to force myself out of my comfort zone and try new things.  And today’s look is a great example of that.  A couple of years ago, I never would have tried an outfit like this.  And while it still wouldn’t be my go-to (like yesterday’s outfit!), I love pushing myself to try new trends and new looks.  Afterall, that’s what makes fashion fun and exciting, right?

Hope y’all are having a great week!

Personal Favorites

Whether you know me through the blog, or know me in person, then you probably know that I love vests.  I am also a big fan of stripes.  So it should come as no surprise that today’s outfit is a typical go-to uniform for me.  You know those outfits that just feel comfortable?  This is one of those for me. An easy, breezy combo that still feels put together, all while being super comfortable. Perfect for a Monday.

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!  I don’t know about you guys, but I was so stoked to see Payton and the Broncos win the Super Bowl!!!  Great way to end the weekend.

Happy Monday!

The “It” Jacket

I don’t know about you guys, but every once in a while I stumble upon a piece that I want to own in every color possible.  And this jacket is one of those pieces. I have owned it in the army green color for the past 2 years and I have worn it so much (and received more compliments on it than I can count!), that it has become a tried and true favorite in my wardrobe.  So when I found it came it came in a washed black color, I knew it would be a good investment.  Plus, it’s under $55.  So if you are looking for the perfect jacket (with a little edge) that won’t break the bank, trust me.  This is the one.

Destroyed Denim

A lot of you ask me for denim recommendations under $100.  So today’s post is for you, ladies!  Whether they are in fashion or not, I always have a few pairs of destroyed denim in my closet.  It’s just a style that I have always loved, and will probably always love, until I’m too old to wear them anymore!  Ha! The pair I’m wearing in today’s post is not only perfectly distressed and super comfy, but they are an all-time favorite of mine.  And the best part?  They are currently fully stocked in all sizes and UNDER $90!!!!!!!!

Current Beauty Faves

Happy hump day, lovelies!  I wanted to change things up a bit today and do something that I haven’t done in a while-share my current beauty faves!  Typically I’m pretty loyal to my tried-and-true products, but over the last couple of months, I’ve stumbled on a few new things that I’ve added to my routine.  So I wanted to take a minute and share both the old and the new with all of you.  Details, and why  I love these products can be found below!

Favorite ProductsClockwise from top:

  1.  Moroccan Oil: I am obsessed with this stuff.  I color my hair and have extensions and it does wonders for both.  Since I started using this regularly about a year and a half ago, I have seen a huge change in my hair.  Plus, if you live in a dry climate like I do, it will help with static and dryness during the harsh winter months!
  2. Karen Walker Sunglasses c/o Ditto: I am obsessed with sunglasses, so I have absolutely fallen in love with a company called Ditto.  They let you rent any designer sunglasses of your choice for just $24/month.  There is no contract and you can change them out as often as you want (with free shipping!).  Plus, if you use code: ALLDOLLEDUPBLOG at checkout, you can try one month for free!
  3. Urban Decay Naked Smokey Eye Palette: I’ve been super loyal to the original Naked palette for years, but I finally bit the bullet and picked this smokey one up.  And I am SO glad that I did!  It has great colors in it that I don’t already have, and it’s helped me to be more bold when experimenting with date night looks.  But it’s not just for dressing up either!  There are amazing neutrals for daytime as well.  It really is just a great all around palette and definitely worth every penny!
  4. Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Foundation: this is a new product for me.  I have been wearing Estee Lauder Double Wear Light pretty religiously for over a year. I love the matte finish, that it stays in place all day, and I never get oily.  BUT, this winter has been so dry, it started to make my skin look dry and cakey.  On the recommendation of another blogger (Mckenna Bleu-check out her blog here), I tried this one.  And you know what?  I LOVE it! It stays in place all day, I never get oily, and it doesn’t leave my skin looking dry like the Estee Lauder.  And even better? It doesn’t feel like I’m wearing anything on my face.  This is probably my favorite out of all of the new products I’ve tried!  It’s also free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates! I use this powder to set it.
  5. Benefit High Beam Highlighter: I was having dinner with a good friend a few months ago and I couldn’t stop staring at her skin.  It looked so radiant!  And when I asked her what her secret was, Benefit High Beam was it.  So obviously, I immediately purchased some for myself.  And the verdict? I am obsessed with it!  It’s super easy to apply, gives the most beautifuly radiant finish, and looks great blended using this.
  6. Benefit Roller Lash Mascara:  I am a tried and true fan of Bare Minerals Lash Domination. But I’ve found that mixing Lash Domination with this mascara gives me both incredible length and volume.  Plus, if I finish it off with a little Younique 3D Mascara for special occasions, it looks like I’m wearing false eyelashes!  So good!
  7. Rodan + Fields Sunless Tanner: this stuff is the bomb.com.  Not only is it super easy to apply (you can even put it on your face!), but it gives you a gorgeous, gradual tan that you can build as much as you want to.  When I went to the Bahamas with friends a couple of weeks ago, the weather was too cold to get any sun.  But I used this stuff for a little color and everyone talked about what a nice, natural tan I had when I came back! ha!  Plus, it doesn’t get streaky or blotchy around the wrists, ankles, or knees when you apply it or when it wears off.  This is hands down the best sunless tanner I’ve ever tried.
  8. Butter London Lippy Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayon: I am a gloss girl and most lipsticks can drive me nuts.  But not these!  The color is super vibrant, they wear really well, and are comfortable on the lips.  Plus, the lid has a built in sharpener making it the perfect all in one! Ladybird (a fiery red/orange), Primrose Hill Picnic (the perfect bright pink), and Trout Pout (a great bright coral) are my go-to colors.

Let me know if you guys have any questions!  Would love to hear if you use any of these products, or what your favorites are!  I am always on the lookout to try new things!

xoxo,

Abby

 

Mellow Yellow

Contrary to popular belief, pink is my 2nd favorite color.  In fact, it’s yellow that has always had my heart.  So when I saw this coat, I knew it was perfect for me.  Plus, there is nothing better than a candy colored coat to brighten up a dreary winter day.  And for all of you out there who don’t like or can’t wear yellow, you’re in luck, because this also comes in pink, teal, black, and winter white.  PLUS it’s on sale!

Winter Florals

Even though it’s the dead of winter, I can’t help but find myself already wishing for spring.  So I’ve been slowly starting to incorporate some florals and brights back into my wardrobe. And this Free People top is a new favorite!  I have it tied here to make it a little shorter in the front, but it’s a great tunic length and would look perfect (untied) with tights or leggings.

But I’m curious to know, do you guys feel about wearing florals in the winter?
