Cabi Fashion Experience

Ever since I discovered Cabi a few years ago, I have partnered with my stylist to host a Cabi Experience at my house two times a year to showcase the Spring and Fall lines. And it is always something that I so look forward to. I love getting a group of my best girls together, serving up some tasty treats and beverages, and of course the most exciting part, getting to the see the new line in the comfort of a home, with a stylist on hand to not only present the line to us, but also help us pick the right sizes and silhouettes for our bodies. It’s always a night full of fun, friendship and fashion. Three of my favorite things!

This year, I happened to have a last minute work trip come up the week of my Fashion Experience. And the way it worked out, I was only flying in about 2.5 hours before my show. I didn’t want to cancel, but was feeling overwhelmed about cutting it so close and getting from the airport to the grocery store and home before my show started. And when one of my best friends stepped in and offered to do the shopping for me, my first instinct was to say no. I didn’t want to put her out like that, and felt like I should do it myself. But when I realistically looked at my timeline, I realized I needed to let her help me. And I am SO thankful that I did. Not only did she save the day by so selflessly going out of her way and putting together a gorgeous spread of food for me and all of my guests, but her generosity perfectly embodied what Cabi is all about, and what these Fashion Experiences represent, women loving on and supporting other women. And perhaps as much I adore Cabi clothes, I adore their message even more. Because every time I’ve attended a Fashion Experience in the last few years, whether it’s been my own, or someone else’s, I’ve experienced this love and support in such a tangible way. So if you’ve never been to a Fashion Experience, or hosted one, then I would highly recommend it. Obviously for the beautiful garments and first class experience with an incredible in-home stylist, but perhaps more importantly, for the amazing sisterhood and culture that IS Cabi.

Long Sleeved Dresses

I don’t know what it is, but I am obsessed with long sleeve dresses this Fall.  Now don’t get me wrong, I love wearing all of my sleeveless dresses with cute jackets and cardis, but when the weather is still fairly mild, I love the idea of changing things up a bit and leaving the jacket at home.  And while I was obviously drawn to this dress because of the sleeves, I also love it’s unique leopard print.  It feels refreshing to me to add a piece to my closet that isn’t a basic leopard, but rather a fun play on my favorite type of print!

The Road Less Traveled

Fall in Utah is my favorite.  Not only is it absolutely gorgeous, but it seems to last forever and the weather is unbelievably amazing.  I seriously can’t imagine a better place to be for the months of September and October.  And with the fall foliage at a frenzy right now, I am trying desperately to enjoy every second of it before the snow starts to fly-which means weekends spent at the farmer’s market, watching bike races, and checking out all of the beautiful fall colors.  And I have to say that cozy sweaters and comfy booties have been my go-to weekend uniform as of late-particularly if they are cognac and gray…

Fancy

Today I wanted to share a couple of my fall favorites with you guys-fur vests and hats.  Seriously, I can’t stop wearing either.  Both are fantastic Fall staples and are a great and easy way to add a little interest to any outfit.  I normally keep things fairly simple and would tend to only pick one stand out piece per outfit, but I have to say, I am loving how this look turned out (even if my hubby did tell me Jenny from the Block called and wants her outfit back)…

Happy Thursday, sweet readers!!!  I hope you are all having a great week.  I have been in San Francisco for business meetings-which I can never complain about it.  It is one of my favorite cities in the world and I have so many favorite spots I love to frequent while I am there-one of the perks of my job!
