Fall Florals

When I think florals, I definitely think Spring.  But for whatever reason, I have been finding myself drawn to bright colors and flowery patterns this Fall season.  Maybe it’s denial about the cooler months ahead, or maybe it’s my love for color.  But either way, I am kind of digging breaking out some of my favorite Spring pieces in the month of November…

Grounded

You might have guessed pink, but yellow is actually my very favorite color.  And one of my favorite ways to wear it as of late is in a neon hue back to black with a pop of leopard.  And while I believe it’s perfectly acceptable to wear neon and bright colors all year round (and do!) during the colder months, it is good to ground them with darker colors making your brights feel more appropriate for the season…

Vegas Recap

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that J and I were in Las Vegas last week for a long weekend and a bike race.  We had a fantastic time and spent our days riding our road bikes through the Red Rock Canyon, attending Interbike, doing a little shopping, and (mostly) lounging by the pool.  It was a fun and relaxing few days.  But I have to say, my favorite part was the excuse to get extra dressed up for dinner in the evenings.  And any excuse to throw on a little extra sparkle is a good enough excuse for me…

Date Night

I love a good date night outfit. And while I normally use date night as an excuse to wear a cute dress or skirt, sometimes you just can’t beat a good pair of jeans and a sparkly top. Especially when you add some fun accessories…

And of course in addition to a great outfit, who doesn’t love a cute pair of shoes?  And even better?  A cute, comfy, and, affordable pair of shoes!  And these wedges fit the bill.  In fact, I have them in another color (which you can see here) and I’m pretty sure both pairs will be important staples in my wardrobe this summer.  Plus, right now they are on sale for under $30.  Get them before they’re gone!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Sunrise, Sunset

I can hardly believe that another year has passed and I celebrated my 32nd birthday last week. And not only is it hard to fathom that I am 32 years old, but my birthday also marked the 10 year anniversary of my graduation from Vanderbilt. Wowza. Truth be told, I’m not sure which of the two is harder to wrap my head around! But fortunately for me, I had a wonderful celebration to help soften the blow. Due to the perfect timing of our Macy’s Vendor Summit, I was able to spend my big day in my favorite city and be whisked away on a surprise celebration by my sweet hubby. For the first part of the evening, I was instructed to dress warm (more on that later this week), and for the second, I was told to pack a fancy dress. Of course I jumped at the opportunity-it’s not nearly often enough in life that one has the chance to get really dressed up…

Dress: BCBGMaxazria (amazing Nordstrom Rack find!), similar, similar | Bow Belt: Macy’s, similar | Earrings: Sappari (local boutique in Whitefish, MT), similar | Clutch: Coach Legacy | Pumps: Aldo Dixil

I am absolutely head over heels for this dress and have to say that I felt like an absolute princess all night.  And there are so many things I love about it that it’s hard to even know where to start.  But one thing I can say for sure is how important  it is that every girl have a dress her in closet that she absolutely adores and that makes her feel like a million bucks every single time she puts it on.  The way I see it, fashion shouldn’t just be about looking good-but more importantly feeling good!

Thank you so very much to all of you for the birthday wishes last week!  Truly, they made my day.
