Long Sleeved Dresses

I don’t know what it is, but I am obsessed with long sleeve dresses this Fall.  Now don’t get me wrong, I love wearing all of my sleeveless dresses with cute jackets and cardis, but when the weather is still fairly mild, I love the idea of changing things up a bit and leaving the jacket at home.  And while I was obviously drawn to this dress because of the sleeves, I also love it’s unique leopard print.  It feels refreshing to me to add a piece to my closet that isn’t a basic leopard, but rather a fun play on my favorite type of print!

Shootie

I love shoes-and I am talking love.  And while many might guess that my love affair with footwear started when I began my career as a Footwear Buyer and Developer for Sundance Catalog, I would actually be more inclined to say that it began when I was a little tiny girl and insisted that if I had to wear saddle shoes, then they had to be the pink and white ones and not the black and white version that my mom wanted to buy me for school.  And much like my saddle shoes of old, when I saw these Report Signature shoes in a magazine a few weeks ago, I knew I had to track them down.  And boy am I glad that I did.  Because not only are they chic and amazingly comfortable (not to mention versatile), but they are the perfect hybrid between a pump and bootie-which really couldn’t be any more perfect for the season…

I am in Montana this week for work braving the cold.  And while I always love coming back to my home state, sometimes I forget how soft I’ve become between living in Tennessee and Utah over the last few years.  Winter is definitely no joke up here in the big sky state!! Brrrrrrrr….

Hope you have a wonderful week and staying warm!  Happy hump day!

Hooray For Chambray!

Oh how I love me some denim. Whether it’s a great pair of jeans, a denim jacket, a go-to pair of shorts, or a chambray shirt, I am a fan of it all. Maybe it’s my Montana roots, or maybe it’s just because denim is something everyone can wear. Either way, if you haven’t added a chambray shirt to your wardrobe yet this season, then it’s high time you took the plunge.

Now the key to wearing denim well is to select ONE piece of denim for your ensemble.  Unless of course they are contrasting shades of denim, and then it’s ok to do some layering. But I definitely prefer to pair mine back to black, white, or bright colors.

FPF: Pitchnic World Premiere

Some of you may remember this post that I shared back in May when Justin and I attended the annual spring fundraiser for Spy Hop (one of our favorite events of the year). But for those of you who don’t, Spy Hop is a tremendous organization in our community that gives high school kids the opportunity to participate in the arts outside of the regular classroom. And we have been blessed to have the opportunity to become involved and give our support to some of their programs. One of which is a film making program.

At the fundraiser last spring, the kids pitched 4 different films to us and we were able to bid on our favorite and help with the costs of creating the films. So last night, 6 months later, we attended the world premiere party and first time screening of these films. And this morning I am still blown away by their talent, their poise, the caliber of the films we saw, and the excitement for what lies ahead for these bright young people.

It was 72 degrees in the SLC yesterday, so I was thrilled to have the chance to wear a dress and pumps with no tights one last time this season.  But I didn’t want to look too summery, so I took one of my favorite summer dresses, and paired it back to a cardi, a cognac belt, and some leopard pumps to give it more of a fall feel.  I love pieces that you can transition from season to season.  They are the best investments you can make in your wardrobe!

Happy weekend everyone!
