Second Chance

There is a funny saying floating around Instagram that says: “Nothing haunts us like the things we didn’t buy”.  And every time I see it, I have a good chuckle, because sometimes it isn’t that far from the truth!  Such was the case for the sweater in today’s post.  I tried it on at JCrew last summer and decided not to buy it (even though I loved it). And I have always regretted not purchasing it.  So when I saw that JCrew Factory released an almost identical version  a few weeks ago-I pounced!  And I am SO glad that I did.  Not only did I get a great deal on it, but it is such a pretty and unique piece that I know I will wear for years to come.  Thank goodness for second chances!

Print Mixing

I love that it’s perfectly acceptable to mix different prints together (thank you Jenna Lyons!).  I mean really, a couple of years ago, I never would have thought to wear leopard and tribal prints together. In the same outfit.  But for whatever reason, it works.  And perhaps more importantly? It’s FUN.  And in my book, fashion should always be fun, don’t you think?

Remix

I love a good stripe.  And even though this blazer is a few years old, it is still one of my very favorite things.  Because to be totally honest, while it’s always fun to buy new items for your wardrobe (duh!), it can be equally as fun to challenge yourself to style tried-and-true pieces in new and creative ways…

Sunshine

I am a huge fan of pink, but it’s the color yellow that will always be number one in my book.  So when I saw that my favorite shirt comes in a brilliant shade of yellow for Spring, it was a total no-brainer for me.  And while I dressed it down today with my favorite military vest, I am already scheming up more ways to wear this fabulous shirt!  Don’t love yellow? Don’t worry.  This blouse comes in a multitude of colors and is the perfect top to add to your closet for work OR play!

Shades of Pink (and gray!)

I’m baaaaaack!!!! :) Hope you guys don’t mind that I took a few days off from sharing outfit inspiration to enjoy my vacay in Nicaragua with my hubby.  We had such a fun and relaxing time-but it’s nice to be back home and feels even better to be getting back into a routine-which of course, includes blogging!

So if you hadn’t already noticed, I’ve been really into a neutrals as of late.  And as a professed lover of color, this is definitely a change for me.  But one combo I have always, loved, whether I am in a neutral or color phase, has always been pale pink and gray.  It is such a timeless and simple combo and perfect back to a bright pink pump if you are looking to add a little extra punch of color!

Red and White

Well hello there, sweet friends!  Apologies for being a little MIA on the blog this last week.  If you follow me on Insta (and if you don’t you can find me here: alldolledupblog), then you know I am on vacation with my hubby in gorgeous San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua.  It is our 3rd time visiting this beautiful country and we are having a blast!  I had some blogs scheduled to share with you this week, but our internet has been a little spotty, so today is the first day I am able to share one of my planned posts with you!

I picked up this fantastic tulle skirt from Windsor Store for the holidays, but have found countless ways to wear it sine then.  And I know I will be able to get a ton of use out of it in the coming months as well.  In my opinion, a girl can never have too many tulle skits-especially when you can snag this one for under $35!!!!!  So if you have been looking to add a tulle skirt to your closet, this is really a great option AND it comes in lots of super cute colors!
