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…

Queen of Hearts

I love a great heart print sweater or sweatshirt-kind of takes me back to being a kid in the ’80’s! But a great print is always a super easy way to dress up an otherwise basic outfit.  And who doesn’t love a great pop of cobalt blue?  Blue is one of the colors this season and I am absolutely loving it!

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!  It was freezing here in the SLC, so we ate lots of comfort food and warmed up in the hot tub!  But the cooler weather definitely got me in the holiday spirit and has left me feeling excited!  I love all of the anticipation of this time of year!

Happy Monday!

 

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!

Neon Dream

It sure was a busy weekend for the Doll family here in the SLC. Two birthday celebrations, two barbeques, and one girl’s night out in Park City made for lots of good memories and laughs with friends. And on top of all of the fun , the weather finally decided to cooperate. So to kick off a weekend full of sunshine and celebrations, I thought it was only fitting to break out one of my very favorite color combinations of the season-neon yellow and grey…

I have been on the hunt for a pair of metallic pumps for the last couple of months.  But since my guess is this will be a fleeting trend (and I’m trying to save up for sandals!), I wanted to find an affordable option.  So I was beyond thrilled when I stumbled upon this pair from Target on sale for only $14.95.  And not only were they a fantastic bargain, but they are really comfortable too.  Talk about an amzing deal!!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!
