Simple.

In an effort not to overload you all on color this week, I thought today I would post a more neutral outfit. Because after all, sometimes it’s true what they say, simple is best. And while I don’t always necessarily gravitate towards these types of vintagey tops, the fabric and drape of this one was just to pretty to pass by. You can also see how I styled it another way here

Pedal to the Metal

When J and I spent a few days in Red Lodge, MT on our way home from his grandmother’s funeral last week, one of our very favorite things about it was that we could ride our bikes from our hotel to wherever we needed or wanted to go-from daytime adventures to dinner and drinks out on the town. And fortunately for me, I had thought to pack my go-to chambray sleeveless shirt, and Marc Jacobs hobo (that also doubles as a cross body bag)-both of which made for perfect riding attire!

I can’t believe I am hitting the road again for work today.  Pretty sure I haven’t slept in my own bed for more than 4 nights in a row in the last month.  Or completely unpacked from any of my trips, if I’m really being honest.  🙂  Guess I know one thing I’ll be doing this weekend.

Hope you are having a wonderful week!

Let Freedom Ring!

Just wanted to take minute and wish you all a very happy and safe 4th of July! I know I am personally looking forward to parades, the rodeo, a little time spent on the water, and lots of yummy food-all in celebration of this incredible country that I am lucky to call my home. God bless America!

Archive Brights

Ok, ok so even though it’s been really cold and rainy here, don’t mind the background of these photos, because we don’t actually have any snow on the ground here in the SLC (well at least in the valley!). But rather, I was going through my outfit archives and realized that I never shared this little gem of an outfit with you all! And something about the combo of neon purple and rich, cobalt blue made me want to blog about it. I absolutely love mixing two bold colors together-especially these two colors.  They are the perfect pairing to brighten those sometimes dreary spring days…20130520-231232.jpg

I woke up with a heavy heart this morning thinking about the lives lost and all of those affected by the tornadoes in Oklahoma.  Life is so fleeting and so incredibly precious.  And tragedies like these are a good reminder to treasure your loved ones and appreciate each and every day to the fullest, because really, we never know what tomorrow might bring.  Sending my love, thoughts, and prayers to the Midwest.

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…

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!

Bandwagon

I’m officially on the bandwagon-the chevron bandwagon, that is. And while I have always loved the print for party decorations, home decor, rugs, throw pillows, napkins, and pretty much anything else I see on Pinterest, I have never been totally wild about the bold print on clothing. Until I saw this cute mini-chevron print blouse at American Eagle, that is. I love the small take on a bold favorite and that it’s the perfect complement to the black and white trend this spring…

And of course, my favorite accent color back to black and white is pink.  There is just something about that combo that I love.  And what better way to add color to an outfit than with a pair of shoes?

Happy Thursday!

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!

Leather and Lace

There is just something about the combination of leather and lace. It’s tough, yet sweet, rock and roll, yet sophisticated. Really, I could go on. And while it’s a pairing that works for a multitude of occasions, I have to say it feels pretty darn perfect for a cool, rainy day…

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.

Baubles and Dots

There are so many fun trends in fashion right now, that it’s hard to say just which one is my favorite. But one particular trend I am loving experimenting with is layering multiple necklaces. From chains, to sparkles, to pops of neon-pretty much anything goes. And like many of my favorite things in life, the more the merrier!
