Bloomingdales Friends and Family

It’s that time of year again!  The Bloomingdales Friends and Family event is going on right now through April 6th-which means you can save 20% off of everything in the store (use code FF14 at checkout)!  And because there are so many amazing things to choose from, I wanted to share both my neutral and neon picks for the Spring season with all of you.  Pretty good stuff, don’t you think??

Luckily for me, this sale also just happens to coincide with the arrival of my 2013 annual bonus, so I am thinking of splurging on one of the handbags above.  But before I make my decision, I’d love to know, which one is your favorite?  The neon Kate Spade?  Or the neutral Rebecca Minkoff?
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!!!

Kiss Me, I’m Irish

Happy St. Patty’s Day everyone!  In honor of the holiday, and my Irish heritage, I thought I would share a look incorporating the color green today.  And of course, no look would be complete without a pop of pink and a little sparkle…

Happy Friday, dolls!  Thought I would leave you today with a few things that I am hoping to add to my Spring wardrobe.  And the best part?  Everything is under $100 (except the tote).  I don’t know about you all, but I think my spring fever has officially set in!

Mustard

In my book, navy and mustard is a pretty tried and true color combination-no matter the season, no matter the trend.  And I am loving the playful look of pairing a more formal top and jacket with ripped up, light wash jeans, and nude pumps.  It’s unexpected, yet somehow still classic…

Track Pants

It took me a little while to hop on the whole track pant band wagon, but am I sure glad that I finally did!  Not only are they as comfy as sweatpants, but they look fantastic back to heels.  And who doesn’t love to look to put together while being comfortable at the same time??

Happy, happy Friday to you!  I am flying to Chicago for a baby shower this weekend.  And while I’m a little nervous about how cold it’s going to be, I couldn’t be any more excited to see some of my dearest friends from college.  Be sure to follow along on Instagram to check out my adventure and the Windy City, and of course what I’ll be wearing!!

ModCloth and All Dolled Up

Mod Cloth Evening of Extravagance Dress
 
I am so excited to be teaming up with ModCloth today as a part of their Polyvore outfit challenge!  If you are familiar with ModCloth, then you will know why I was so thrilled when they contacted me.  And if you aren’t familiar with this fantastic online retailer, then run (don’t walk!) to their website.  NOW!  Trust me, you won’t be disappointed.
And with that, today I am bringing you my first challenge.  And that was to style the beautiful Evening of Extravagance Dress.  And I have to say, with Valentine’s day just around the corner, I couldn’t help but be inspired to pair it back to red and leopard.  Awfully fitting, don’t you think?
You can shop my look through the links above, or create your own at ModCloth!
Happy Thursday Dolls!
 

Neutral

Even though I am a color person, sometimes there is nothing I crave more than a basic neutral outfit without any color what-so-ever.  It is such a chic, blank slate and something about that just feels so refreshing. But I have to tell you, that when it came time to photograph this outfit, my husband laughed at me!  Like, an actual, audible, are you really wearing that kind of a laugh!  Turns out he thinks my vest looks like a shag rug!  And I have to say, I think he’s right.  But on the other hand, I also have to say that I love this vest.  I tried to hunt down the original  jacket version that was popular on so many blogs earlier this season, but didn’t have any luck.  So I was thrilled to stumble upon it as a vest.  And not only is it a vest (and I’m pretty obsessed with vests) but it’s super cozy and soft, and it even has pockets.  So at the end of the day, I love it and am resolved to rock it-even if my husband thinks I look like I’m wearing a giant piece of carpet for a top!

It’s not a good sign when it’s only January and I am already craving all things Spring.  And so today I thought I would share some pretty cool transitional pieces perfect for now and later.  Happy Thursday!

Radiant Orchid

I have to admit, I usually get pretty excited every year when Pantone announces their “official” color of the year.  But last year I was so thrilled when they announced that the “it” color of 2013 was Emerald Green, that I didn’t hold out much hope for 2014-that is until they announced that their official color of the year was Radiant Orchid (insert swoon here).  Now if there is one color that could top Emerald Green in my book, this is most definitely it.  So what better way to kick off my 2014 blog posts than with an ode to Radiant Orchid, Pantone’s official color of 2014…

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season.  I have to admit, I’m a little sad to be back to the grind today.  My time away from work just seemed to go by so quickly.  But the good news is, I have a lot to look forward to in the next couple of months!

Happy Monday!  And thanks for stopping by!

P.S.  How amazingly gorgeous is Utah?  So blessed to live in this beautiful state!
