The Tour of Utah was this weekend and J and I were lucky enough to score VIP tickets to the stage 4 circuit race in downtown Salt Lake City on Friday evening. And because we knew thousands of people would be heading downtown for the event, we decided to ride our cruisers to the Capital building-the location of the Start/Finish. And while I obviously wanted to look nice for the event, I also had to be practical when choosing an outfit that could not only stand up to the heat, but that would also be comfortable for a bike ride as well. And I have to say, one of my favorite dresses of the summer did just the trick…

When J and I spent a few days in Red Lodge, MT on our way home from his grandmother’s funeral last week, one of our very favorite things about it was that we could ride our bikes from our hotel to wherever we needed or wanted to go-from daytime adventures to dinner and drinks out on the town. And fortunately for me, I had thought to pack my go-to chambray sleeveless shirt, and Marc Jacobs hobo (that also doubles as a cross body bag)-both of which made for perfect riding attire!

I can’t believe I am hitting the road again for work today. Pretty sure I haven’t slept in my own bed for more than 4 nights in a row in the last month. Or completely unpacked from any of my trips, if I’m really being honest. :) Guess I know one thing I’ll be doing this weekend.
Hope you are having a wonderful week!
I love wearing white in the summer time. It looks so crisp and fresh and is the perfect complement to a sun-kissed glow. And while it seems obvious to gravitate towards white pants, shorts, and dresses, I think a white skirt is the perfect addition to any wardrobe. It’s a versatile piece that can easily be dressed up (with a silky blouse) or down(with a fun graphic tee) and transitions perfectly from day to night (think blazer for the daylight hours). Plus, it’s the perfect canvas for accessorizing with a little sparkle and a splash of color…

I love neon. Especially a nice, bright neon yellow. And while it isn’t the easiest shade to wear, yellow in general is my absolute favorite color, so I’m partial. Which is why, of course, I couldn’t resist this pretty top. And while I can’t recommend this hue for everyone, what I can recommend is a pretty, dressed-up tank back to ripped jeans and heels for a summer night out on the town…

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Ours was unbelievably busy, but filled with some of my favorite things including friends, biking, marbles, vino, time with the littles, root beer floats, and long evenings spent enjoying our deck. Oh how I love this time of year!

Every gal needs a statement pair (or two) of shoes in her closet. And if bags are your thing (like they happen to be mine), then a statement bag is a great investment piece as well. Because on those days when you don’t feel like putting much in effort, accessories are the best (not to mention easiest) way to dress up an otherwise simple outfit…

If you are shopping for your first pair of statement shoes, or looking to add another pair to your collection, I highly recommend a good leopard print shoe. While they are still the perfect stand out piece in an outfit, leopard also works as a neutral and goes back to just about anything!
Thanks for stopping by!
There is almost nothing I love more than attending the first official BBQ of spring. But truth be told, I don’t find them to be the easiest of occasions to dress for. Probably because as much as I love high heels and jewelry, they unfortunately aren’t the best accessory choices for a back yard get together. But through a little trial and error, I think I have come up with a foolproof outfit combo that not only lets me be comfy and appropriate for such occasions, but even a little stylish too…

You have probably noticed things are looking a little different on the blog today-and hopefully in a good way! I have been wanting to test a little larger photo size and a more simplified layout for a while now. And what can I say? I guess the new season finally inspired me to change things up a bit. Guess it’s my blogging version of spring cleaning. Anyway, would LOVE to hear your feedback!
Thank you so much for reading!
I would consider an outfit like the below to be my go-to look-a pretty button down, skinny jeans, a comfy pair of pumps, and some super fun accessories. In fact, this is the type of outfit that I constantly find myself gravitating towards-both in dressy (like this one) and casual versions. I guess I could call it my All Dolled Up uniform…

If you are looking for a perfect fitting button down that comes in a variety of colors, in a gorgeous floaty material, then the Express Portofino shirt is for you. I am beyond obsessed with not only the fit and fabric of this lovely shirt, but also with the vast array of drool worthy colors that it’s offered-definitely something for everyone.
Hope your week is off to a good start. Thanks for reading!
If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times. I love neon. And despite being raised in the 80′s, I am still working on getting my neon fix. But instead of layering multiple neons together, I am loving it as an accent, especially when paired back to unexpected neutrals!

Another trend that I am loving right now is the embellished sweatshirt. Really, how fun that we have the option to be totally and completely comfortable while still adding a touch of sparkle!
Hope everyone is having a fantastic week. Thanks for reading!
Sometimes throwing together a monochromatic look is a welcome change from the usual. Plus, pairing two like colors is an easy concoction to create and a great way to change-up your look without investing in anything new…
