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!

Downtown

I am all about army green surplus jackets and they always seem to reign supreme in my closet this time of year. But truth be told, this camel color jacket has been my absolute favorite this season! It’s such a refreshing alternative to the ever popular olive-green jacket, and the gold hardware makes it feel extra special.  It really is the perfect piece to throw on with jeans for all of those weekend errands and last-minute Christmas shopping!!

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!

Repeat

Ok guys, I have a confession to make.  A lot of times when it comes to fashion, I can be rather boring.  When I find an outfit combo that works, I often times just continue to repeat it, or slight variations of it (over and over).  Take today’s post for example.  I love the way this dress looks back to denim and a pop of neon, and if you remember this post, then today’s outfit might look awfully familiar to you.  In all honesty though, I think it’s smart to remix your wardrobe-particularly if you are on a clothing budget or don’t love to shop.  And dresses are a great starting piece that are easy to wear over and over in lots of different variations across multiple seasons…

Fire In the Sky

Happy Friday everyone!  Remember how I said earlier in the week that I lost all of the outfit photos I had taken while we were on vacation?  Well thanks to my hubby, I was able to salvage the photos from one outfit. And while I am still sad about the others, one, is certainly better than none!  So with that said, I have to tell you guys that I am obsessed with this JCrew top.  I had been eyeing it for quite some time and immediately snatched it up when it went on sale.  The cute embroidered print reminds me of a pink and white Easter dress that I had when I was a little girl, and you all know how much I LOVE neon yellow-a little nostalgia and my favorite pop of color all rolled into one!  Plus, it’s a great statement top that can be easily dressed up or down.  And when the heat index is high, in my closet, easy, breezy, fun tops like these rule!

I’m sure you can tell from the photos, but it was really, really windy when we snapped these pics.  And while normally I would have just waited a day for better weather, the sky was so incredible that I just couldn’t pass up such a gorgeous back drop.  So please don’t mind the wind blown hair!

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
