Denim

Today’s outfit is a little out of my wheelhouse.  But since I love a good chambray shirt (and have a few in my closet that are all fairly similar), I love that this one is totally different from anything else I own.  The longer length in the front makes it feel a bit dressier than your typical chambray, but since it’s denim, it’s totally cool and casual for any occasion.  A perfect of example of business in the front, party in the back! But I want to know, are you guys still into the chambray trend this season?

Hope you guys are having a great start to your week!  It went from 70 degrees here to snowing yesterday in the course of about 2 hours.  So it’s kind of feeling like winter is back-at least for a few days.  And I’m definitely NOT feeling it.  Bring on Spring!

Fringed

My motto this season?  Fringe, fringe, and MORE fringe!  I am loving everything from footwear, to bags, to apparel.  And while I think every gal should own a couple of fringe pieces in her closet this Fall (even just one is ok!), this is a great example of trend that may or may not still be around next season.  So while it’s fun for right now in 2015, my advice is to be smart about your fringe purchases and not invest too much $ wise.  Case and point are the shoes in today’s post.  I have been eyeing for them for what seems like forever, but I just didn’t want to commit to the price tag.  So when they finally went on major sale, I pounced.  And you know what? I know I’ll have fun wearing them, but that I definitely won’t feel badly about buying them if fringe isn’t all the rage next season.

So if you are looking to add some fun fringe footwear to your wardrobe this season, be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post to see more of my favorite fringe footwear under $100!

Summer Chambray

We have had a little break from the heat wave here in the SLC the past few days, which prompted me to break out my favorite lightweight summer chambray shirt.  I am a fan of chambray no matter the season, but one of my favorite ways to wear it is back to a full skirt.  And it was the perfect choice for the weather this week.  Especially because it gave me an excuse to wear my favorite wedges.  I seriously can’t get enough of these shoes!  If you are looking for a new pair of wedges this summer, I highly recommend them (linked below).  They also come in black and white!

Color

I am normally a color wearing gal, but lately, all I have been wanting to wear are the neutrals in my closet.  So in an effort to get myself out of a colorless rut, I decided to break out my favorite geometric print pink pants.  And boy am I glad that I did.  I can’t tell you how good it felt to infuse some color and a little life into my outfit!  So if you are feeling in a rut or unsure of what to wear this week, try giving a pop of color a try!  Hopefully it will revive you like it revived me!!!!

Down On the Farm

Our weather has been a little crazy the past few days (nice one minute, then raining, or snowing the next!), so between that, and our busy schedules, it’s been a little hard to coordinate for blog photos this week. So yesterday after work, J and I decided to meet at a beautiful historic farm pretty close to our house.  And even though it was freezing cold while we were shooting, I loved the location and can’t wait to shoot more photos there-even if we did get chased down by some whopping big snow geese!

And do you know what else I am loving? The simplicity of today’s outfit.  Black and white is all the rage this season, and I love it paired back to simple chambray, nude pumps, and a bold lip.  Another one of those looks that is so easy to put together, but makes you looked you really put some effort in!

On Repeat

If you were to run into me on a typical Saturday in the Fall, I would most likely be wearing something similar to today’s outfit.  In my book, it’s tough to beat a staple chambray shirt (plaid is also often on repeat), my favorite skinnies, a vest for layering, and a pair of boots comfy enough for running errands or cheering my hubby on at a Cyclocross race.  This is definitely my go-to fall look, and if I am being honest, it has been for the last couple of years.  Not super exciting, I know.  But sometimes practicality wins out over fashion…

P.S. Aren’t the Fall colors absolutely stunning here in Utah???  I can’t get over it.

Shifting

I’m not ready to give up my dresses just yet-nor am I ready to break out the tights just yet either.  So I’ve found that the best way to extend the life of my favorite dresses into the Fall season is with a little layering.  And I am absolutely loving the look of a casual chambray shirt back to a more dressed up shift dress. For me, it’s the perfect alternative to a basic cardigan…

I hope you all are having a fantastic week.  I am hitting the road again for work today, which always makes things a little hectic in my life.  But be sure to stop by again tomorrow for another new outfit post!

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…

Denim and Lace

I LOVE denim shirts. The way I see it, wearing one is kind of like flipping your outfit upside down-just like a great pair of jeans, a great denim shirt goes with everything. And because I always love my favorite skinnies back to a lace shirt, this outfit combo was a no brainer…

I guess I figured since I still have a bit of a tan from our vacation I could get away with bare legs and boots.  But truth be told, tan or not, it was a little chilly to be without tights.  And I hate to say it, because we have a long ways to go, but boy am I ready for summer!!

Thanks for reading!

Afro Circus

Whenever I put on polka dots, which seems to be pretty frequent these days, the Afro Circus song from Madagascar always seems to pop into my head. And if you’ve ever heard that song before, you’ll understand why I think it’s safe to say I’m as crazy about polka dots as Chris Rock.

I’ve always been a glove girl.  But when I was doing some Christmas shopping  at Target a couple of weeks ago and spotted these adorable polka dot mittens, I knew I needed to give them a try.  And boy am I glad that I did!  Not only are they incredibly comfy and cozy, but their sherpa lining kept my hands surprisingly warm at J’s final Cross race of the season on Saturday.  Which also proved to be a very snowy and blustery day.  I think it’s finally safe to say that winter has officially arrived in the SLC!!
