The “It” Jacket

I don’t know about you guys, but every once in a while I stumble upon a piece that I want to own in every color possible.  And this jacket is one of those pieces. I have owned it in the army green color for the past 2 years and I have worn it so much (and received more compliments on it than I can count!), that it has become a tried and true favorite in my wardrobe.  So when I found it came it came in a washed black color, I knew it would be a good investment.  Plus, it’s under $55.  So if you are looking for the perfect jacket (with a little edge) that won’t break the bank, trust me.  This is the one.

Be Mine

J and I are going to be on vacation over Valentine’s day again this year, so my date outfit will most likely consist of some sort of bathing suit and cover up.  BUT that doesn’t mean that I won’t be sharing some V-day outfit inspiration with all of you on the blog this week!  And today’s outfit is all about pink!  I always feel my best in a pretty silk top styled with skinny jeans, pumps, and a chic black jacket-so some sort of version of this outfit is always a no-brainer for me when it comes to date night.  And adding a bright pop of pink makes this go-to combo perfect for a Valentine’s night out on the town, or a more low key date night in…

 Jacket: Express (old), similar (my other favorite jacket), similar, LOVE this | Silky Top: Express (my favorite-comes in TONS of cute colors!) | Necklace: Dillards (old), almost identical | Skinnies: American Eagle | Ring: Kendra Scott | Sunnies: Karen Walker | Bag: Clare Vivier (sold out), clutch version | Pumps: Franco Sarto (SUPER comfy!)

And even though I’ve said it a million times, I just have to say it again.  These silky v-neck tops from Express are the bomb!  And I am especially smitten with all of the fun new spring colors hitting the stores right now-like this neon pink version.  It is definitely going to be on major repeat in my closet this season, and should be in your’s as well!

Happy Monday!

 

 

 

 

Downtown Abby

Last week marked our big 2014 planning meetings. And while it was fun to discuss our fashion and growth strategies for the upcoming year, I always especially love the excuse to office out of our beautiful, brand new Macy’s in downtown SLC. And so of course, when Friday rolled around, my hubby and I took full advantage and met for drinks at one of our favorite local downtown spots. It was the perfect way to enjoy some gorgeous spring weather and kick off a nice, relaxing weekend after a week full of craziness.

We all know I am obsessed with pink shoes.  And this bubblegum pink pair is my current favorite because they are amazingly comfortable.  But can we talk about my little bow top for minute?  It’s pretty safe to say that I am beyond obsessed with it.  The teeny, tiny bows are so darn cute and on top of that, they are velveteen-totally reminds me of when I was a kid.  Plus, it was under $15.  Can’t beat that!!!

Hope you all had an amazing weekend.
