Black and White

I love the black and white trend this season.  And because black is such a staple (and something I know all of you already own in your own personal wardrobes), this should be an easy trend for anyone to get in on this season without necessarily having to pick up anything new.  And while black and white is a relatively safe trend to try, bordering on the more serious and sophisticated side of style, remember that it’s okay to have a little fun with it and think outside of the box too-like mixing graphic prints and stripes together.

Back To Black

Sometimes there is nothing better than a LBD.  Especially this time of year when paired back to a black leather jacket and a pop of leopard.  There is just something so chic, yet so effortless about it. Talk about an easy way to look like you dressed up without even trying!  And in my book, fashion shortcuts and pieces you can style all year long are the best.

Happy hump day!

 

 

Shades Of Gray

I have been on the hunt for a cute pair of gray jeans for a while now.  So I was pretty excited when I found these cuffed Joe’s skinnies on sale for a major steal at Macy’s during the holiday weekend!  Gray is a great alternative to your typical blue jeans, it’s an easy neutral, and a perfect addition to your denim wardrobe this Fall season!

Golden Hour

This past weekend, J and I had a little staycation up in Park City.  And even though it was officially the last weekend of summer, the Fall season has already crept into the mountains.  The leaves are starting to change colors and it was definitely jacket weather.  But since I’m not ready to give up dresses quite yet, I am extending their seasonality by pairing them back to denim and leather jackets.  And I’ve got to say, summer to fall transitional fashions are some favorite looks to put together!

If you haven’t jumped on the graphic tee bandwagon yet, then you are seriously missing out!  I mean seriously, how awesome is it that it is perfectly fashionably acceptable to rock a super-comfy tee with your favorite skirt or heels?  This is one trend I’m hoping will stick around for a while!  Don’t you  just love it when fashion and comfort collide?

And congrats to CINDY AITON!  You are the lucky winner of the KiraKira Marrakech Ring!  Please send me an email at: abby_doll@hotmail.com so we can work out the details.  SO excited for you!

Put A Vest On It

I am never, ever ready for summer to end, but I am always ready for fall fashion!  And even though the temps are still relatively warm, fall is definitely starting to creep into the air here in Utah and I can feel myself starting to gravitate towards darker colors, neutrals, denim, leopard, light jackets, and vests (of course)!  All of which are super easy key items to start to transition those summer outfits into fall! So if you are ready to get your fall wardrobe going but aren’t quite sure how, try pairing a vest back to your favorite tank and denim…
