T-Shirt Dress

I am a huge fan of t-shirt dresses.  And I have been especially loving this one lately.  First of all, it’s striped (duh!), second, the high low hem-line makes it really unique, and last but not least, it’s under $10!  Say what??  Don’t you just love a good deal on a great closet staple?  I know I certainly do.  PLUS, this is another great example of a piece that is perfect for now and later!

Happy Monday, friends!

Neon Mono

I love a good monochromatic combination.  And while my instinct is usually to use neutrals for monochromatic looks, this necklace/sweater combo has convinced me that it works really well with with color (especially neon!) too!!

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.

Another Little Piece of My Heart

When I was singing in Nashville, one of my favorite songs to perform was Janis Joplin’s version of, you guessed it, Another Little Piece of my heart.  It is one of my all-time favorite songs and she, one of my all-time favorite artists.  And I’d  like to think that perhaps it’s my love for classic music that drew me to this sweater, and not just a weakness for happy sweaters… IMG_1905 IMG_1907 IMG_1917 IMG_1911 IMG_1915 IMG_1920

Inspiration Station

Often times when I put together an outfit, it’s because I am inspired by a pair of shoes, a handbag, an image I’ve seen, or in this case, a necklace. I am loving statement necklaces this spring, and this one is one of my favorites. I love the pretty flowers, chain length, and the unexpected and unique combination of mint and neon yellow. So much so in fact, that an entire outfit came to fruition because of it…

I just wanted to take a minute and send my love to Boston.  I feel so heartbroken by the events that transpired yesterday and can’t even begin to imagine the hurt and the devastation that the victims and their families are feeling right now.  And while I wish I had more to offer, I hope they know they have my support and prayers.

God bless you all today and in the days to come.

Twirly Girl

I LOVE that circle skirts are back on trend. There is something so fun and completely girly about them. In fact, when I slip one on, it’s all I can do not to twirl around like I’m five years old again…

I hope that you all had a wonderful Easter weekend.  The above is actually what I wore to church and for dinner on Easter Sunday.  I always love a good excuse to get dressed up, but I especially love Easter and the reason why we celebrate the Resurrection of Christ.   It is always one of my very favorite days of the year.  And of course I love Reese’s Peanut Butter eggs.  I mean really, why is it that they are so much better than regular Reese’s anyway?

Happy Monday!

Mint To Be

Like everyone else this season, I think it’s pretty safe to say that I am obsessed with the color mint. It is such a beautiful, refreshing hue and goes with such a multitude of things. But right now I am especially loving it back to neutrals…

I think a neutral leather (or faux if your prefer) jacket is a must have item in any closet.  Especially this time of year when we start to gravitate towards brighter colors and pastels.  It’s a great basic and the perfect alternative for your go-to black jacket!

I Heart SF

I spent the better half of last week attending meetings in San Francisco. It is my favorite city in the country, so it was a welcome get away. Plus, I have to admit that it was pretty fantastic to escape the snow and cold for a few days and enjoy a little milder weather…

Denim and Lace

I LOVE denim shirts. The way I see it, wearing one is kind of like flipping your outfit upside down-just like a great pair of jeans, a great denim shirt goes with everything. And because I always love my favorite skinnies back to a lace shirt, this outfit combo was a no brainer…

I guess I figured since I still have a bit of a tan from our vacation I could get away with bare legs and boots.  But truth be told, tan or not, it was a little chilly to be without tights.  And I hate to say it, because we have a long ways to go, but boy am I ready for summer!!
