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!

TGIF

I can’t even begin to tell you guys how happy I am that it is Friday!  Why does the first full week of the year always seem to go by so slowly?  Just another one of life’s many mysteries, I guess!  Anyway, today I wanted to share a super casual outfit with you all that is one of my go-to looks.  As much as I love color, I am obsessed with gray and love it paired with white-especially when you throw in a pop of cognac.  I don’t know if it’s the dreariness of January or the post holiday blues, but this is a combo I’ve been reaching for all week. And don’t forget to scroll to the bottom of the post to see if you won the $50 Bohme Boutique giveaway!

Happy weekend sweet friends!!!!

Black and White

Sometimes there is no better color combo than classic black and white.  Especially when paired back to a pop of leopard and a bold lip to add a little dimension.  Plus, do you guys love beanies as much as I do?  I’m pretty sure I would wear one every day if I could.  Not only are they super cute and cozy, but they are also completely practical for this time of year.  And when fashion and practicality collide, you can almost always rest assured that I’m a fan!!!

Winter Pastels

I am loving the pastel trend this winter.  To me, there is just something so soft and beautiful about wearing colors like lilac during the crisp, white, winter months.  And not only are pastels an unexpected (and fun!) choice right now, but they are a nice transition from the bold holiday colors of red and green (not that you can’t still wear those colors now too!!)…

Can you believe the holiday season has come and gone and it’s January again already?  To be honest, I’m kind of nursing the post holiday blues.  And the fact that it’s Monday certainly doesn’t help matters, does it?

But regardless, cheers to the new year and all of the new adventures it holds!  And don’t forget to CLICK HERE to enter for your chance to win a $50 gift card to Bohme Boutique!  Winner will be announced on Friday!

Sequins for NYE

There is no better time to wear your favorite sequin number than tonight.  NYE is the quintessential day of the year for anything that sparkles!  And while I normally gravitate towards black for my NYE festivities, when Bohme Boutique sent me this gorgeous blush sequin dress, I knew it would be the perfect thing to wear to say goodbye to 2014 and hello to 2015!

I also wanted to wish you and your families a very happy New Year.  THANK YOU so much for your support and for making 3014 SUCH a special year for me.  I appreciate each and every single one of your more than you know!

Dolled Up

I love getting dolled up.  And the holiday season presents exactly that opportunity.  But living in a state with a cold winter climate, sometimes I feel like I don’t have any coats or jackets that look or feel all that glamorous.  So for quite a while, I have been on the hunt for a great (and affordable) faux fur animal print coat-and I am happy to report that I have finally found one (AND that it costs less than $65)!!! Not only is it super cozy (it reminds me of my favorite faux fur throw), but  I love the vintage feel of it, and the idea of pairing it back to great heels and a dress for a NYE party, or wearing it with boots, skinny black pants, and a silk top (like I did for a friend’s casual wedding reception over the weekend)…

On another note, can you BELIEVE tomorrow is NYE and that yet another year has come and gone?  As cliche as it might sound, I just can’t believe 2014 is already just about over. BUT I always look forward to all of the possibilities that a new year brings. Kind of exciting, don’t you think?

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!  Thank you so much for stopping by!!!!

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

You guys!  I have been dying to share these photos with you since the day we got them back from LC Photography.  J and I send out a Christmas card every year, and this year I wanted to do a Christmas inspired shoot up in our beloved mountains of Utah. We had never done anything holiday themed before so it was a pretty fun project to work on.  Plus, it’s always a bonus to be photographed by the incredibly talented duo that makes up LC Photography AND get some photos with my handsome hubby (who is always such a good sport and incredibly supportive of all of my creative endeavors)!

And so, from our family to yours, Merry, Merry, Christmas….

December Rain

We have had an unusually warm and dry winter here in the SLC thus far.  So when the rain and sleet started coming down this past weekend, I was actually a little thrilled because I am hoping for a white Christmas (duh!), but also a little bummed because rain and blog photos usually don’t mix.  But we managed to take cover and get these shots done.  And guess what?  I’m rocking green again (in a little different shade than Monday’s post) for the holiday season!  This outfit is an easy one to put together and perfect for a holiday party-especially when paired back a red lip!
