Yellow Pop

My mom has always had great taste.  And even as an adult, I always anxiously anticipate the fun gifts she will spoil me with on special occasions.  And this yellow clutch, along with my necklace, are not only two of my very favorite Christmas gifts (courtesy of my sweet mom), but they are both staples that will remain relevant in my wardrobe for a long time to come.  Plus, who says you can’t wear sequins and feathers after the holidays?

Strappy

Do you guys watch Project Runway?  It is one of my FAVORITE shows.  And in this past episode, Edmond (one of my faves!) made a gorgeous pant suit complete with a cloud inspired vest.  It was one of my favorite looks of the week.  And the gorgeous, strappy top that he made, reminded me of one I have in my closet that I’ve never posted to the blog.  And so today, I thought it would be fitting to share a classic black and white look complete with a bright a lip.  A perfect Fall date night look inspired by one of my favorite shows!

Blanket Scarf

I love the blanket scarf trend.  It’s such a chic way to stay cozy during the cold winter months, and a great way to add a pop of color to any outfit.  In fact, I picked up this scarf at the Gap last season (you can see how I styled it last year on the blog here) for this very reason.  I love having the (practical) option of adding a pretty pop of blue and pink to an outfit during the winter months.  But I want to know, what do you all think about the blanket scarf trend???

Montana Roots

I love a great camo print.  And I can’t help but wonder if it stems from my Montana roots.  But regardless of where my fondness for the print comes from, I am definitely happy that camo is still an important print this Fall season!

Nickel Creek

If you know me personally, then you know I LOVE music.  And if you don’t, well now you know.  I also have a pretty broad taste in music, thanks to my dad’s influence growing up and studying and pursuing music in college.  And while my love for music is broad, there are a handful of bands/musicians that are especially near and dear to my heart.  And one of those such bands is Nickel Creek.  I have been a huge fan of theirs since the late ’90’s when I first fell in love with country and bluegrass.  And when they broke up in 2007 before I had a chance to see them live, I was pretty devastated.  So when they announced they were getting back together this year and starting to tour in May-I knew I absolutely had to see them.  And as luck would have it, the 3rd stop on their Dotted Line tour just happened to be in Salt Lake City.  So J and I scored amazing 3rd row tickets and have been counting down the days to the show.  And I have got to tell you, the musical talent that this band possesses is truly mind-blowing.  It was an absolutely incredible show and I can’t stop smiling today thinking of the magic we saw last night up on that stage.  So if you love bluegrass or appreciate musical talent, then check and see if Nickel Creek is coming to your town.  And if they are, GO SEE THEM!  I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Now on to today’s outfit, which is actually what I wore to the show last night.  Casual, but cool with a fun pop of color.  When I go to a concert or show I always like to wear a cute tank/cami with a jacket so that I can take the jacket off if I get warm, or leave it on if the venue is cool.  In my book, it’s always good to be prepared for either possibility.  I am also a high heel kind of girl, but always make sure to wear my comfy heels so that my feet can be sure to last through a night of dancing…

Camo

Happy Thursday, everyone!  I am on the road again this week for work, and enjoying the opportunity to spend some time in my home state of Montana.  But truth be told, I am ready to be home and sleep in my own bed.

But in the meantime, today I wanted to share with you one of my favorite combinations-camo and hot pink.  And while I wouldn’t initially have thought to put this outfit together, I happened to try on this sweater while I was wearing these pants running errands a couple of weekends ago and loved the way they looked together.  And once I added pink accessories, I was sold!  A perfect and fun go-to outfit for the transitional season between winter and spring!

Shades Of Gray

It’s been so gray the past couple of days, the weather must have seeped into my subconscious and impacted my wardrobe-a gray ensemble for an equally gray day.  But of course, I couldn’t let the dreariness completely overtake my outfit, and decided to brighten things up a little by adding a pair of yellow pumps.  Yellow and gray, after all, is one of my favorite color combinations.  Ever.

Also, while I don’t normally get too personal on the blog, I felt it pressing on my heart to share this story with all of you.  Sarah grew up down the street from me and at 32 years old is battling a rare and aggressive form of cancer.  And not only does she have a difficult fight ahead of her, but she has two young children and a husband to think about.  Please keep she and her family in your prayers, and if you feel so inclined to donate, there are links in the article (it’s super easy).  And feel free to share her story and spread the word if you feel so inclined.

Reading Sarah’s story reminds of how important it is to be thankful for my health.  It is something so easy to take for granted, but yet it is so incredibly precious.  A good  and humbling reminder…

Hope you are all having a great week!  Thank you so much for stopping by!

 

 

 

 

Blush

I am all about the sudden resurgence of pink this season.  It is such an unexpected shade for Fall, which is perhaps why I am especially loving it.  Well that, and the fact that pink is one of my very favorite colors (if you didn’t already know)…

Rain, Rain, Go Away

I didn’t intend to use the below outfit for a post, but due to rainy weather, a late night at work, a bike race (the hubs), and other complications, well, here it is. But, with that said, I’ve got to say, I LOVE it. Funny how sometimes the best outfits are the ones that happen on accident, or when a wrench is thrown in your plans. I guess it keeps things interesting. And besides, it’s pretty hard to go wrong when wellies are involved, don’t you think?

I hope you are all having a great week and that you weather is a little warmer and drier than ours.  Fall has certainly descended upon the Wasatch front with a vengeance this week.  And while I love Fall, I’ve got to admit, I’m not quite ready for it to be so dreary just yet!  But on the bright side, I guess it’s time to break out the boots!

Thanks for stopping by!

Back To Basics

Not only is Fall officially here, but it is also officially in the air. And the first thing I seem to find myself reaching for these days is my favorite chambray shirt. Paired with fun accessories, it’s a comfy, chic way to kick off the season and ease yourself out of those easy, breezy summer clothes…
