This fall, J and I decided that we wanted some updated pictures of the two of us. And so, we enlisted the help of our super talented friend Sam Kanzler of Kanzler Foto. She and her hubby had taken some photos of J and me a few years ago, and not only were they amazing, but the four of us became fast friends. Besides being incredibly talented, Mike and Sam are two of the most generous, kindest, and funniest people that I know. They are just those kind of friends you feel especially blessed to have found in life. And with that, here is a little preview of a few of my favorites from our photo shoot “Justin and Abby After Dark”…

I hope you are all having a wonderful week and staying warm! We finally had our first big snow storm here in the SLC-we got about a foot at our house! I guess it’s safe to say it really is beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

I have a slight obsession with cognac boots-or more specifically these cognac boots. I wear them more than any other piece of footwear that I own and I am feeling pretty bummed that they are all but about worn out. And because I knew this would most likely be their last season, I have been on the hunt for a replacement pair all fall. And surprisingly I have had absolutely zero luck. Maybe I’ve set my standards too high, but how hard could it possibly be to find a pair in the right shade of cognac with a low heel (wedge or stacked), wide enough to fit my calves, that go with everything, and are neither too dressy, nor too casual? Apparently it’s nearly impossible. Looks like a trip to the cobbler is in my very near future-I need all the help I can get prolonging the life of these babies…

Fitness is incredibly important to me, and during this time of year, I am especially grateful to have a secret weapon to help beat that dreaded holiday weight gain. And that my friends is Kenny Akers’ 2Xtreme Bootcamp here in the SLC. Kenny whips me into tip-top shape, keeps me laughing through even the most challenging workouts, always brings the intensity and new challenges, pushes my limits and comfort level at every class, and is a constant source of inspiration to me and our entire bootcamp family. And today I wanted to share the opportunity to work out with Kenny with all of my Salt Lake readers. Kenny is offering All Dolled Up readers one week (3 classes) free to come and check out his camp. He is also extending a discount of 20% off of your first month if you mention this blog post. You can find Kenny here, or you can email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) for details. Believe me, you don’t want to miss out on this opportunity. Whether it’s to beat the holiday bulge, or your New Year’s resolution, I simply can’t say enough good things about Kenny’s 2Extreme Bootcamp . Trust me, you will not be disappointed…

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend and a wonderful Thanksgiving. Ours was absolutely wonderful and I have to say I’m a little said it’s over. BUT the countdown to Christmas is officially on and that makes this girl super happy! Happy Cyber Monday!!
I love finding fashion inspiration on Pinterest and Instagram. And that is precisely where I stumbled upon the jacket and peplum top that I’m wearing in this post. Both were at the top of my shopping list this fall, and while I didn’t anticipate wearing them together, I am loving the structure and lines of the jacket back to the flirty and almost futuristic ruffle of the peplum. And while my hubs is a big fan of the jacket, peplum remains one of those styles that he just can’t wrap his head around. I guess we can add it to that list of fashions (along with fur vests and maxi dresses) that men just don’t understand…

I LOVE the day before Thanksgiving. In fact, I love the day before just about any holiday. What can I say? I am an anticipation kind of girl.
And while there is so much I am thankful for, this year I am especially grateful for each and every one of you-my readers. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for stopping by, your engagement, your words of encouragement, for the friendships we are creating, and for all of the support! All Dolled Up would not be possible without you!
Wishing you and your families a wonderful, safe, and joyous Thanksgiving.
I LOVE polka dots. And I especially love polka dots paired with plaid. So lucky me that both happen to be very on trend this holiday season! And not only are they both on trend, but in my opinion, they are the perfect combo to put together for all of those upcoming holiday parties quickly filling up the calendar!
