Off-The-Shoulder

If you follow along on Instagram (alldolledupblog), or Snapchat (alldolledupblog), then you know that J and I were on vacation in Montana last week.  Of course I had good intentions to take a lot of blog photos while were there, but it was insanely smokey from all of the fires, and truth be told, we were having too much fun to work!  Ha! But I did manage to get some photos of this outfit, which is what I wore to a family brunch on Sunday.

I am obsessed with this off the shoulder top because it is so comfy and flowy-a slight departure from a lot of the tops in my closet.  And while I have been having fun styling it with shorts, I can’t wait to wear it with long denim and booties in the Fall.  So fear not, my friends, styled the right way, you can definitely transition your off-the-shoulder tops and dresses into the Fall season!

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!  I headed straight to Seattle from vacation for a week long leadership summit.  And while I am looking forward to an inspirational week, I can’t wait to sleep in my own bed again!

Thanks for stopping by!

 

 

 

Summer Dresses

I am and always have been a jeans and t-shirt kind of a girl.  But last summer, I made an effort to start wearing more dresses.  Especially during the summer months.  And you know what?  It is definitely something that has stuck.  I find myself wearing more and more dresses these days without even making a conscious effort to do so.  And this easy, breezy swing dress from Express is at the top of my list.  I first found the long sleeve version this spring (which you can see how I styled it here), and then found it in sleeveless stripes, and now in this gorgeous cobalt blue.  It is definitely a go-to in my wardrobe and as I head out on vacation today, you can guarantee it’s packed neatly in my suitcase!

T-Shirt Dress

I am a huge fan of t-shirt dresses.  And I have been especially loving this one lately.  First of all, it’s striped (duh!), second, the high low hem-line makes it really unique, and last but not least, it’s under $10!  Say what??  Don’t you just love a good deal on a great closet staple?  I know I certainly do.  PLUS, this is another great example of a piece that is perfect for now and later!

Happy Monday, friends!

 

Burgundy

When it comes to shopping, I am not very good at purchasing items in advance for an upcoming season.  Instead, I am more of a buy now, wear now kind of girl.  So this time of year gets to be a little tricky for me.  While August is one of my favorite times to shop because of all of the amazing deals, summer is also running short on time, so I want to be careful and not purchase things that I am going to have to put away in a few weeks.  So instead, I look for transitional items to add to my wardrobe that I can wear now and wear later.  And this dress is a great example.  I had been eyeing it in a bright pink color for quite sometime, but when it recently went on sale, I ultimately decided to buy it in burgundy because not only can I wear it now, but it will look great layered with leopard, and booties, and jackets and sweaters!

Color

I can already feel myself doing it.  Gravitating towards neutral and fall colors.  And while I love it, I know I need to slow down and appreciate the colors of summer.  So today’s post serves as a good reminder that there is still plenty of time left to wear all of the brights that the warmer months tend to inspire…DSC_1190 DSC_1191 DSC_1206 DSC_1198 DSC_1200 DSC_1219 DSC_1201 DSC_1215 DSC_1220 DSC_1225

White After Labor Day

I’m baaaaaack!  Been a bit of a rough week for me over here.  I got some bad spider bites while we were on a float trip this past weekend and have been having an allergic reaction to them in the form of hives all over my arms and legs!  Gross!  Didn’t figure you all would want to see that on the blog, so I’ve just been taking it easy this week.

Fortunately, I started to feel a little better last night which is why I’m finally back today.  And good thing too, because I want to talk about how much I love white pants!!  I was so hesitant to buy them at first because I knew I would get them dirty (which I pretty much do every time I wear them), but it has been so worth it.  Not only do they look great with almost every cute summer top in my closet (especially bright colors!), but I can’t wait to transition these bad boys into Fall with booties and oversized sweaters!  Who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day???

Romper Style

So now that I’ve decided I can wear the off-the-shoulder trend (see this post where I talk about how I didn’t think it would work for my body type), I can’t seem to get enough of it.  Ha!  Isn’t that the way that it always goes.  But I have to say that for me lately, it doesn’t get much better than an off-the-shoulder romper.  My husband and I love to bike in the summer and often ride our tandem road bike to dinner or drinks and apps, so I am always looking for cute outfits that are appropriate for bike riding AND date night (which is much harder than you would think!).  But I have found that rompers, above all else, always seem to fit the bill.  Especially when they cost less than $20!!
