Floral Dress

If you guys have been following this blog for a while, then you definitely know I am a huge fan of long-sleeved dresses.  And this Spring is no different.  While I also always love wearing light jackets over dresses this time of year, sometimes it’s kind of nice to leave the extra layer at home.  Plus, I’m always game for any kind of dress with a little twirl factor.  And this one definitely fits the bill!

Leopard Tunic+A Little Update

It’s hard to believe it’s been exactly 3 months since my car accident.  In some ways, it feels like 3 months of my life have been completely lost to the fog of this concussion, as I’ve battled severe sleep deprivation, fatigue, a newfound fear of driving, mild dizziness, vision issues, and a roller coaster of emotions on top of some already difficult life circumstances.  I haven’t been able to partake in a lot of the things that I love, like skiing, biking, Orange Theory, hiking, going out with friends, or even shopping.  And despite really disliking hospitals, I have found myself having to go to countless appointments with my neurologist, my neuropsychologist, and my balance and mobility therapist. Fortunately, I’ve been starting to see some pretty significant improvements over the last couple of weeks, and am beginning to feel more like myself.  But looking at the last 3 months as whole, if I’m being honest, it’s been really, really hard.  And some days I kind of just want to wallow in my own self pity. Ha!

I think I realized a few weeks ago that one thing I was really struggling with was the fact that someone else’s bad decision has had such a negative and lasting impact on my life.  And I was feeling kind of angry about it.  But then one morning I was sitting in my neuropsychologist’s office, and he asked me if I am the type of person who believes that bad things just happen, or if I believe that bad things (or good) happen for a reason.  And for me there was no hesitation.  As a Believer, I am definitely a person who believes the latter.  While we can’t always see the bigger picture, his question put things into perspective and reminded me that Jesus is authoring the story of our lives.  And in some way, shape or form, this accident is a part of my story.  One of my favorite verses in the Bible is Romans 5:3-4: “suffering produces perseverance, perseverance character, and character, hope”.  I’ve seen friends recently walk this out so well and have admired them so much.  And as I sat in that office that morning, I was overcome, because I realized that I too can persevere.  So then and there, I made the decision to stop feeling sorry for myself and to commit to walking  through the aftermath of my head injury in this way, with perseverance, character, and hope. Because while I can’t control the decisions and actions of others, I can control my own.

So here’s to a positive mindset, a grateful heart, continued improvement, and (what you probably really came here for), more outfit posts!!  And a huge thank you to you all for all of your support.  You guys really are the best.

Tassels

You guys probably know by now that I love a good tassel embellishment.  So this tassel clutch was an absolute no-brainer for me.  And guess what?  It’s on major sale right now and comes in a bunch of other colors too.  I’d definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a fun new bag this fall.  And the bell sleeves on this cozy sweater? I can’t get enough.  I just love how they take a super simple silhouette and turn it up a notch.

Bell Sleeves

I am loving this little navy dress.  Not only is it perfectly on point with the bell sleeves, but it’s also a great way to transition the off-the-shoulder trend into the Fall season.  Plus, at only $15, it’s a total must-have.

Booties and Dresses

One of my favorite combos for the warmer months of the Fall season? Booties and dresses.  And while I’ve loved this shark-bite hem dress as a summer staple, I am particularly liking how it pairs back to booties, and can’t wait to wear it with my favorite leather jacket when the temps start to drop.  But for now, it’s a perfect transitional piece, that is comfy to boot! Plus, it’s only $21!!!

Surplus Jacket

A favorite item in my wardrobe every Fall, is a classic army surplus jacket.  Not only is it a practical piece, but it’s also perfect for layering with just about any outfit you put together.  So if you don’t own one yet, this is the season to take the plunge.  And I’ve linked a few of my favorites below to make your shopping that much easier.

Hope you guys are having a great week!  If you follow me on Snapchat (alldolledupblog), then you know I came up to Montana for the wedding of a close family friend, and to visit my family for the past couple of days.  And I have to say, it’s FREEZING here!  I definitely did not pack the right things.  But I’m always so thankful to be home with family (no matter the weather), especially my sweet niece!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Brunch

Yesterday I mentioned that I celebrated the wedding of two dear friends this past weekend.  And today’s outfit is what I wore to the brunch the day after the wedding. I have worn this plaid shirt a ton over the last few months because it’s a super easy piece to style in a multitude of different ways (it was last featured on the blog here). So it was a no-brainer to throw on, and left me feeling super comfy, yet put together.

Cowl

I love a good turtleneck.  But I also love a good cowl neck.  And this cute and cozy waffle knit cowl from Free People has been a go-to for me all season.  My favorite pieces are those that answer the inevitable frustration of looking in your closet and feeling like you have nothing to wear, and this top does that flawlessly.  Plus, it’s on major sale right now too!

Camo

I’ve always loved the camo trend-and this year is no different.  And if you don’t already own one of these vests from JCrew (JCrew Factory also has them for a killer deal), then you need one in your life!  They are a perfect layering piece and add a little something extra to any outfit.  I’ve linked a bunch of my favorites below!
