Transition

You guys!  Can you believe it’s September already?  Holy cow!  Where the heck did summer go?  And while there is part of me that always hates to leave the summer months behind, I certainly do love Fall.  Especially Fall fashion!  And if you know me in real life, or have followed my blog for very long, then you know my love for military vests during the Fall season.  And this year they are back again and bigger than ever!  So if you didn’t snag one last year, you can shop my picks below  (all under $100!)!  A vest is DEFINITELY something versatile that every gal should have in her closet this season!

If you follow me on Instagram (and if you don’t, you should follow me @alldolledupblog), then you might have seen my post about these gorgeous Prada sunnies.  I LOVE designer sunglasses, but hate the expensive price tag.  So when I discovered Ditto, I knew it was perfect for me.  You can rent a pair of DESIGNER sunglasses (think Prada, Karen Walker, Ray-Ban, Illesteva, etc.) for just $19/month (they even have prescription!)! You also get free shipping and can change out your sunnies as often as you want.  How amazing is that???  And even better???  Try it for one month FREE by using code: ALLDOLLEDUP at check out!  ENJOY!

 

Holiday Dressing

I LOVE polka dots.  And I especially love polka dots paired with plaid.  So lucky me that both happen to be very on trend this holiday season!  And not only are they both on trend, but in my opinion, they are the perfect combo to put together for all of those upcoming holiday parties quickly filling up the calendar!

Dream Coat

We had our first snow here in the SLC this weekend.  It was a beautiful day on Saturday at almost 70 degrees, but the wind was whipping through the valley all day which usually signals an impending storm front.  So without even having to check the weather, I knew come Sunday morning, the chance of waking up to snow was pretty good.  And while I must say I have mixed feelings about it, one thing I was most definitely excited about was getting out my winter coats.  And speaking of coats, if there is one trend that every gal should jump on this season, it’s adding a colorful jacket or coat to your winter wardrobe.

Where The Green Grass Grows

Not only did J and I purchase a house two years ago that needed a complete gut job and remodel on the inside, but it also needed a total overhaul of the outside as well. And after countless projects and a lot of hard work (we have done the majority of it ourselves), we are literally one project away from completion-both inside and out. And since one of my favorite things about warmer weather is fresh-cut grass (both the smell and the color), I can’t tell you how excited I am to spend countless evenings on the back deck enjoying ours this summer. And I am guessing this also might just be the explanation as to why I am so enamored with my grass-green tote right now…

I am on the road again this week for work-which marks two weeks in a row.  And while I love my job, I can’t even begin to describe how much I am looking forward to getting home tomorrow night, and spending a nice relaxing weekend lounging in our finished backyard.

Hope you are all having a wonderful week.  Thank you for stopping by!

The It Factor

There is always an “it” piece for me every season. Okay, well maybe a few different, “it” pieces. But whether it’s a pair of shoes, a new handbag, or a some sort of fabulous accessory, there are always bound to be a couple of key things that will top my wish list and be on constant rotation in my closet. And I have to say that this season, it’s safe to say that my pretty rosette necklace is going to be one of those pieces…

Plaid Button Down: JCrew (old) similar, similar | Skinnies: American Eagle | Rosette Necklace: T+J Designs (via Haute Look), similar | Sunnies: Hilfiger | Watch: Michael Kors | Bag: Kate Spade (on sale!!!!) | Pumps: Aldo

I initially fell in love with this necklace when I spotted it in JCrew at the beginning of the season.  But as enamored as I was, I just couldn’t bring myself to pay the hefty retail price tag for it.  And boy am I glad that I waited.  Not only did I get an amazing deal on the T+J version (which is excellent quality, by the way), but I was also able to pick it up in another color. I am going to have so much fun styling this necklace over the next couple of months-I can’t wait!
