Shoulder Detail

I am loving any top I can get my hands on with details on the shoulders this season.  From embroidery (see this post), to cut outs, to sequins-I am all in.  And I am especially a fan of this sweater since it is such a lovely shade of my favorite color-yellow!  Plus, I am loving it back to a more casual boyfriend jean and a super playful mule pump.  Can you tell I’m ready for spring?

Also, be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post to see the winner of the Moose and Nigel giveaway!

A Look Back

Happy New Year, sweet friends!  I love the anticipation and possibility that a new year brings, but I also love reflecting on another year’s end.  The good times, the bad, the lessons learned, the hurts, the joy, the laughter, the adventure, and even the fashion.  And so today, to give 2014 a proper send off on the blog, I wanted to share my favorite look from each month over the course of the last year!  Enjoy!!!

Layers

We have had such a mild fall here in the SLC, that I almost forgot how brutal it can be to have to take blog photos during the winter months.  But boy, was I sure reminded in a hurry when we shot these photos on Saturday.  I guess it’s time to break out the winter coats, and pile on the layers.  And speaking of layers?  Surplus vests over plaid and flannels is still a combo at the top of my list this season…

Army Green

I’ve got a thing for army green-no matter the season.  But every year when Fall arrives, it seems to be on with a vengeance in my wardrobe.  Especially if I can wear it with a little leopard. And while I would normally gravitate towards styling this outfit with denim, I wanted to give one of my favorite summer skirts one final hurrah for the season.  And even though the airy gauze and tulle material of this skirt with it’s delicate floral embroidery lends itself incredibly well to warmer weather, I am pleasantly surprised how a little army green and a pop of leopard make it feel perfectly acceptable for the fall season.  And you should see it with a leather jacket!!  Maybe I won’t be putting this one away just yet…
