Red and White

Well hello there, sweet friends!  Apologies for being a little MIA on the blog this last week.  If you follow me on Insta (and if you don’t you can find me here: alldolledupblog), then you know I am on vacation with my hubby in gorgeous San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua.  It is our 3rd time visiting this beautiful country and we are having a blast!  I had some blogs scheduled to share with you this week, but our internet has been a little spotty, so today is the first day I am able to share one of my planned posts with you!

I picked up this fantastic tulle skirt from Windsor Store for the holidays, but have found countless ways to wear it sine then.  And I know I will be able to get a ton of use out of it in the coming months as well.  In my opinion, a girl can never have too many tulle skits-especially when you can snag this one for under $35!!!!!  So if you have been looking to add a tulle skirt to your closet, this is really a great option AND it comes in lots of super cute colors!

The Holiday Season

I love this time of year.  And one of my favorite parts?  The holiday parties!  And fortunately, this season, J and I have plenty to attend-the first of which is this weekend!  So when I saw this skirt in the Nordstrom Savvy department a couple of weeks ago, I knew it was the perfect holiday party piece to add to my closet!  And I’m especially loving it back to a plaid shirt with a pop of red-helps to make it slightly less dressy and perfect for any type of holiday occaision!

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!

 

Blanketed

I am a big fan of the blanket scarf trend.  When the temps drops and there is snow on the ground, there is just something so cozy and comforting about wrapping up in one.  So when I was in SF a couple of weeks ago for business meetings, I popped into Zara to check out their assortment for the season (since they are the authority in chic blanket scarves).  And I have to say that while I was smitten with the entire collection (and a lot of other things in the store, for that matter), the scarf below was the one that stole my heart.  And now that it has finally cooled off in the SLC, I can already tell that it is going to be a go-to item in my closet this season!

Fri-yay!

Well hello there, Friday!  And hello there, sweet readers!  I am so glad to be back with another outfit post for you guys today!  My apologies for the radio silence, but I was traveling all week for work, and it poured rain all last weekend, so I fell a little behind with my outfit photos.  But the good news is I’m back, AND it’s the end of another work week!  So what better way to kick off the first weekend of the glorious month of October than by showcasing my favorite buffalo plaid shirt and destroyed black skinnies!

L’eggs Sweepstakes!

Do you guys remember L’eggs when they were sold in the iconic egg packaging?  I know I sure do. And because I always thought of them as an ’80’s staple, I was surprised (and excited!) when they contacted me and asked me to be a part of their 40th birthday celebration and re-launch of their limited edition egg packaging.  Now to be totally honest, I have always been on the fence when it comes to pantyhose and tights, and always have been.  But with the popularity of tights and pantyhose over the last year, I figured why not give them a try.  And I have to say-I am SO happy that I did.  Not only are L’eggs totally affordable (and easy to find-check your local drug store!), but they are super comfy with just the right amount of control around the tummy and thighs.  And with all of these in-between temperatures as we transition into warmer weather, they are the perfect accessory if you are anxious to start wearing all of your spring/summer dresses and skirts (like I am!).

In today’s post, I am wearing the sun-tan shade which gave my winter white legs just the right hint of color and smoothed out all of the unevenness caused by those long winter months of nothing but pants.  In fact, when we shot these photos, my hubby didn’t even realize that I was wearing pantyhose.  BUT he did tell me that my legs looked great!  So be sure to check out L’eggs at your local drug store and go here for your chance to win $1,000 cash and a fabulous trip to Las Vegas! GOOD LUCK!!!!!

Tulle Cool For School

Ahhh tulle, how I love you so.  So fun, so whimsical, and the perfect fabrication to make any girl feel like a princess.  And let me tell you ladies, tulle isn’t just for ballerinas anymore.  So if you are looking for something different (and super fun!) to add to your wardrobe this spring, then a tulle skirt is the ticket.  You can wear them back to anything from a t-shirt, to a blouse, to a button down, to a jean-jacket.  Rest assured, you will be pleasantly surprised at the plethora of things you will able to style your tulle skirt with.  But perhaps more importantly, how fabulous it will make you feel…

Thanks for stopping by!

 

 

Pump It Up

I am definitely a high heel kind of girl.  Not a huge fan of flats, and while I do love boots, if I had my choice, let’s be honest, I’d wear a fab pair of pumps everyday.  And so it should come as no surprise that this season I am especially loving making a statement with my footwear.  Don’t you just love that shoes aren’t just shoes anymore, but rather outfit completing accessories?

I had such a fun weekend in Chicago with friends (of course it went by way too fast).  But I couldn’t be happier to be home with my sweet family.  Well that, and the fact that we are only 2 days away from heading back to Nicaragua for a little vacay.  And let me tell you, I am so excited I can hardly stand it.  You can see my pics from last year’s vacation to the darling town of San Juan Del Sur here.

Happy Monday!!!

American Eagle Part Two

First of all, I just want to thank you all for the outpouring of love and support yesterday!  I have been so excited to share this project with all of you and the response has far exceeded what I had hoped for.  So THANK YOU ALL from the bottom of my heart.

Today, I wanted to share the details of my 2nd outfit with you.  Truth be told, I had done a shoot with another outfit but when it was time to submit the photos, I just didn’t feel right about it.  And I can’t tell you how glad I am that I trusted my gut and opted for one more photo-op with my favorite vest.  Because it was by far and away, everyone’s favorite look of the three…

No Place Like Home

There is just something special about a pair of red shoes.  Maybe it’s the Dorothy Gale in me, but I’ve been drawn to them since I was a little girl and have always longed for my very own pair of ruby red slippers.  And while I doubt these will take me anywhere with the click of my heels, at least they are pretty (and amazingly comfortable too)…
