Tied With A Bow

If you guys haven’t heard of Chicwish yet, then I definitely suggest that you check them out.  Not only is their clothing beautiful and feminine, but their price points are fantastic.  In fact, ever since discovering them, they have quickly become a go-to for me when I’m looking for the perfect girly dress, skirt, or top (see how I styled other items from their site here, here, here, and here).

And while I have adored everything I have received from their site, the top in today’s post is definitely my favorite.  I mean really, who could resist a bubblegum pink top complete with a big ol’ bow? **swoon**

Pansies

I love a good floral dress-especially if it’s long-sleeved!  And Lulu’s is always a favorite place to find affordable dresses for any occasion.  So when I was on the hunt for the perfect Easter dress, their website was the first place I looked!  And while I am not sure if this is what I will wear to celebrate Easter this weekend, I do know that it is a piece that is going to get a lot of wear in my closet this Spring!

Winter Pastels

I am loving the pastel trend this winter.  To me, there is just something so soft and beautiful about wearing colors like lilac during the crisp, white, winter months.  And not only are pastels an unexpected (and fun!) choice right now, but they are a nice transition from the bold holiday colors of red and green (not that you can’t still wear those colors now too!!)…

Can you believe the holiday season has come and gone and it’s January again already?  To be honest, I’m kind of nursing the post holiday blues.  And the fact that it’s Monday certainly doesn’t help matters, does it?

But regardless, cheers to the new year and all of the new adventures it holds!  And don’t forget to CLICK HERE to enter for your chance to win a $50 gift card to Bohme Boutique!  Winner will be announced on Friday!

Working Girl

Happy Friday, sweet friends!  I hope you have all had a great week.  I was on the road for work, so despite my best intentions to get some blog posts up and running, my nights were spent getting caught up and prepped for meetings.  But today, I’m back!  And I am excited to share with you a typical outfit that I would wear to work.  Because I am on the road so much for my job (you can read about what I do here), on planes, in cars, and in and out of Executive meetings, I am always looking for work appropriate (and fashionable) outfits that are also super comfy and practical.  The Express Portofino shirt has become a staple in my closet (it comes in TONS of cute colors and prints), and I love pairing it back to simple black skinnies, basic jewelry, and a fun pump or heel for a little pop of color. I have found this to be a great basic formula for an easy wear-to-work outfit that works for just about any occaision.  Not to mention that this combo also looks fantastic with a blazer for a little more dressed up look!

Pink Suede Shoes

I think every outfit is made that much better with a great pair of shoes.  So when I found these amazing pink suede heels for under $50, I knew that they were the perfect addition to my summer wardrobe.  And not only are they cute and comfy (and PINK!), but they add that perfect pop of color to just about any outfit.  Talk about swoon-worthy!!

Black and Blue

As I’ve said quite a few times this Spring, I am loving the color blue-especially anything in cobalt.  It is such a rich, gorgeous color and looks great back to a multitude of other colors.  But despite it’s versatility, sometimes pairing it back to plain old black is the perfect combination…

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  I had a fantastic birthday celebration in Vegas, but I must admit, I’m a little sad it’s all over.  Sometimes the things we look forward to the most always seem to pass us by the most quickly, don’t they? And a very special thank you to all of you for the sweet birthday wishes over the weekend.  I appreciate you all SO much and you helped to make my day extra special!

Thanks for stopping by!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Light and Airy

I love a good structured peplum top. I am also particularly being drawn towards all things white this season.  So this top has (obviously) been on frequent rotation in my closet as of late.  I am also finding myself gravitating towards anything nude as far as footwear is concerned.  And how could I forget light wash denim for both jackets and jeans?  I guess it’s safe to say this warmer weather has me wanting to lighten things up a bit…

Back To Basics

Sometimes when I am shooting outfits for the blog, I feel like I need to layer on extravagant jewelry and accessories, and create outfits with lots of details and interest.  I mean obviously, those types of things photograph better, and I, of course love the challenge of coming up with unique combinations of patterns and accessories to share with you guys (not to mention that it keeps you all interested)!  But on a daily basis, my style is really pretty simple.  And so today, I thought I’d take you back to the basics and share with you an outfit you would most likely catch me in during the work week: a go-to pair of black skinnies, a comfy button down, minimal jewelry, and a great pair of pumps.  Ok, ok, so maybe the pumps aren’t so basic.  But what can I say?  Shoes are my weakness!

P.S. Can you believe the snow on the mountains behind me?  We had been having such gorgeous weather and then over the weekend, it turned on a dime.  Gotta love spring in the Rockies!

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…
