Blushing

I don’t know what it is, but I have really been gravitating towards neutrals lately.  And while blush pink is the “it” color right now-it has always been one of my personal favorites.  So I have been more than happy to wear my blush pink items outside of the spring and summer months this winter.  But I want to know, how are you guys feeling about blush pink this season?

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…

Girl About Town

My hubby races bikes every Saturday in the Fall.  And after his race, we usually like to find a new place somewhere in the city to either grab a beer or a coffee and a treat to celebrate.  It’s nothing too big or significant, but one of my favorite weekend traditions none-the-less.  And because our Saturday’s are so laid back, my outfits tend follow suit and are generally some variation of the below.  Jeans, puffy vest, booties, repeat…

Essential Fall

Every year when fall rolls around, there are a couple of key elements that I always seem to gravitate towards (especially on the weekends).  And in no particular order, those items are: a basic long-sleeved gray tee, a novelty vest, destroyed dark denim, and cognac booties.  And because these items are on constant rotation in my closet this time of year and incredibly versatile for the Fall season, today I wanted to share them with all of you!

In-vest-ed

There was a period in time that I wore this denim vest so much that I had to make a conscious effort not to wear it so often. And I did such a good job of avoiding it that it ended up buried in the back of my closet and forgotten about for a period of time. And so today, I couldn’t be happier to welcome it back to the rotation!  To me, there is just something about a vest (whether it be denim, down, leather, fur, etc.), that just adds that extra pop to any outfit.   It’s just tough to beat those pieces in your wardrobe that make you look like you put in a little extra effort when you really actually didn’t…

I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend.  I was lucky enough that one of my very best friends came to the SLC to visit me.  And let me tell you, we had the most amazing time.  From shopping, to manicures, to eyelash extensions,  to fun dinners out on the town, and even a little Sundance Film Festival action, it will be a weekend that I will always fondly remember.  Sometimes there just isn’t anything better than girl time.

Happy Halloween!

In honor of Halloween, today’s outfit post is brought to you by the colors orange and black.  And while it might seem like a taboo combo, or at the very least a little tough to wrangle, I promise you can wear black and orange together without looking like you are dressing up for Halloween-or in support of your favorite team.  The best bet?  Stay away from a true orange.  Instead, opt for shades of mandarin (like my outfit below), corals, or neon.  All look fantastic with black and can be worn together anytime of the year…

On Repeat

If you were to run into me on a typical Saturday in the Fall, I would most likely be wearing something similar to today’s outfit.  In my book, it’s tough to beat a staple chambray shirt (plaid is also often on repeat), my favorite skinnies, a vest for layering, and a pair of boots comfy enough for running errands or cheering my hubby on at a Cyclocross race.  This is definitely my go-to fall look, and if I am being honest, it has been for the last couple of years.  Not super exciting, I know.  But sometimes practicality wins out over fashion…

P.S. Aren’t the Fall colors absolutely stunning here in Utah???  I can’t get over it.

Neutrals

I love fall fashion.  And by love, I mean really love.  There is just something so appealing to me about layering on sweaters, cute jackets, and lots of jewelry.  And neutral colors?  Forget about it.  As much as I am a tried-and-true color girl, this time of year, army green and anything in a neutral color palette is what you’ll find me reaching for. Ok, well maybe with a little pop of color…

Hooray For Chambray!

Oh how I love me some denim. Whether it’s a great pair of jeans, a denim jacket, a go-to pair of shorts, or a chambray shirt, I am a fan of it all. Maybe it’s my Montana roots, or maybe it’s just because denim is something everyone can wear. Either way, if you haven’t added a chambray shirt to your wardrobe yet this season, then it’s high time you took the plunge.

Now the key to wearing denim well is to select ONE piece of denim for your ensemble.  Unless of course they are contrasting shades of denim, and then it’s ok to do some layering. But I definitely prefer to pair mine back to black, white, or bright colors.

Half Tucked

I love the half tuck. It’s an easy way shake things up a bit and the perfect balance between looking casual and polished. And while I usually prefer to wear this look with a belt, this time I went without.  And in this instance, I think it lends itself particularly well back to distressed denim…20130527-223614.jpg

I have to admit that  my mom and I had a good laugh about the half tuck while my family was in town for the holiday weekend. You see, the half tuck is a casual look that my dad has been rocking for as long as I can remember.  And while we have always teased him about it (also for as long I can remember), it’s a great example of how cyclical fashion can be.  Hold onto something long enough and it’s bound to come back around…

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend!
