Buffalo Plaid (and your guide to Black Friday sales happening NOW!)

It’s no secret that I love a great plaid shirt.  In fact, I have to limit how many plaid shirts I wear in a week!!  They are such an easy go-to in my closet this time of year, it’s hard not to gravitate towards them!  So on the eve of Thanksgiving, I thought it was fitting that my 3rd and final outfit idea for you turkey day festivities was a plaid shirt.  After all, a bright red buffalo check shirt is the perfect festive look to wear during the holidays-especially when paired back to a pair of favorite leggings, a cozy fur vest, and some killer pumps or boots!

Neutral

Even though I am a color person, sometimes there is nothing I crave more than a basic neutral outfit without any color what-so-ever.  It is such a chic, blank slate and something about that just feels so refreshing. But I have to tell you, that when it came time to photograph this outfit, my husband laughed at me!  Like, an actual, audible, are you really wearing that kind of a laugh!  Turns out he thinks my vest looks like a shag rug!  And I have to say, I think he’s right.  But on the other hand, I also have to say that I love this vest.  I tried to hunt down the original  jacket version that was popular on so many blogs earlier this season, but didn’t have any luck.  So I was thrilled to stumble upon it as a vest.  And not only is it a vest (and I’m pretty obsessed with vests) but it’s super cozy and soft, and it even has pockets.  So at the end of the day, I love it and am resolved to rock it-even if my husband thinks I look like I’m wearing a giant piece of carpet for a top!

Vegas Recap

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that J and I were in Las Vegas last week for a long weekend and a bike race.  We had a fantastic time and spent our days riding our road bikes through the Red Rock Canyon, attending Interbike, doing a little shopping, and (mostly) lounging by the pool.  It was a fun and relaxing few days.  But I have to say, my favorite part was the excuse to get extra dressed up for dinner in the evenings.  And any excuse to throw on a little extra sparkle is a good enough excuse for me…

FPF: Gold Cuff

So I guess it’s been a little while since I shared a favorite item with you all on a Friday.  And today I wanted to talk about my summer obsession with gold cuffs!!  I just can’t seem to get enough of them (if you hadn’t figured that out already!).  They are a great statement and the perfect way to add a little interest to any outfit-whether it be dressed up or dressed down.  Plus they are an easy alternate to an elaborate arm party-especially on a hot day when the last thing you feel like doing is piling on the jewelry…

Both of my cuffs featured in the above photos are older styles from H&M, but I am currently crushing on this style, this style, and this style.

J and I are heading on our annual summer vacation to Montana in just a few hours, and I absolutely cannot wait for a week of fun in the sun with family and friends in the beautiful Flathead Valley!  I will however, still be posting next week, so be sure to stop by the blog!

Happy weekend!

Neutral Obsession

As much as I am enamored with color, I am perhaps equally as enamored with neutrals. They are soft, feminine, and, most importantly, a refreshing break from the neons and brights that I normally find myself gravitating towards (more often than not)…

Don’t you love when you have been eyeing something online and it turns out to be even better in person?  Such was the case with this cute peplum top.  I had seen it online, but as much as I love it, have a hard time with the whole peplum trend (I am very short-waisted, so they don’t normally do much for me).  But when my family was here for Memorial Day weekend, my mom treated my sister-in-law and me to a traditional shopping trip, and I was able to spot it on the rack at Forever21.  And I have to say, it’s one of those Forever21 pieces that is quite impressive.  While most of the stuff in that store is fairly cheap both in quality and in price, and what I would consider “disposable” fashion (not that it can’t still have a very desirable place in your wardrobe), they do have items (if you have the patience) that are actually quite nice and very well made.  And this top is one of them.  The fit and fabric are both lovely and in person it looks very expensive.  Don’t you just love finding bargains like?   Me and my bank account sure do. 😉

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Flower Power

Last weekend I got to spend an evening in Park City with some of my favorite girlfriends. And what better outfit to wear for a night with the girls than my favorite boyfriend jeans paired back to my current fashion crush-a pretty water colored floral blazer. I am absolutely loving the floral trend this season-especially back to torn-up, light wash denim. That mix of sassy and sweet-I swear it gets me every time…

Citrus Punch

I would consider an outfit like the below to be my go-to look-a pretty button down, skinny jeans, a comfy pair of pumps, and some super fun accessories. In fact, this is the type of outfit that I constantly find myself gravitating towards-both in dressy (like this one) and casual versions. I guess I could call it my All Dolled Up uniform…

If you are looking for a perfect fitting button down that comes in a variety of colors, in a gorgeous floaty material, then the Express Portofino shirt is for you.  I am beyond obsessed with not only the fit and fabric of this lovely shirt, but also with the vast array of drool worthy colors that it’s offered-definitely something for everyone.

Hope your week is off to a good start.  Thanks for reading!

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.
