Summer Dresses

I am and always have been a jeans and t-shirt kind of a girl.  But last summer, I made an effort to start wearing more dresses.  Especially during the summer months.  And you know what?  It is definitely something that has stuck.  I find myself wearing more and more dresses these days without even making a conscious effort to do so.  And this easy, breezy swing dress from Express is at the top of my list.  I first found the long sleeve version this spring (which you can see how I styled it here), and then found it in sleeveless stripes, and now in this gorgeous cobalt blue.  It is definitely a go-to in my wardrobe and as I head out on vacation today, you can guarantee it’s packed neatly in my suitcase!

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!

Think Pink

Quick (late!) post coming to you guys today.  This was actually a recent outfit that I wore to work and I just had to share because I am loving bubble gum pink so much this summer.  It is a fantastic, versatile color and of course pairs perfectly back to black skinnies and nude pumps with a pop of leopard!

Thank you guys so much for stopping by!  I am so excited to be heading to Bozeman, Montana (I used to live there!) this afternoon to celebrate the wedding of two very dear friends this weekend.  And then we are off to spend the 4th of July in Red Lodge.  It is going to be a crazy long road trip, but I seriously can’t wait!

Happy Thursday!

 

 

 

Easter Best

When I was a little girl, my mom always dressed me to the nines for Easter Sunday-pretty dress, white gloves, and of course an Easter bonnet.  And while I don’t bust out gloves or a new bonnet for Easter Sunday anymore, it is still ingrained in me to get dressed up for the occasion.  And what better outfit for Easter Sunday than a candy colored sweater and pretty floral skirt?

Same Same

Leopard on leopard.  What do y’all think?  Yay or nay?  I think yay.  I am obviously a huge fan of print mixing, but typically gravitate towards pairing different patterns together (florals and stripes, stripes and leopard, polka dots and stripes, etc.).  And while I believe it’s perfectly acceptable to mix two of the same print together, it definitely works best if you follow a couple of rules.  The first is that the patterns are in the same or a complimentary color palette.  And the second is that the size of the two different prints are contrasting.  Pretty easy, don’t you think?
