Stripes

I know I’ve blogged about these camis from Express before.  But they are truly the best and worth mentioning over and over.  Not only do they look great with jeans, slacks, jackets, and skirts, but they are reversible, so you are essentially getting 2 shirts for the price of one.  And in my opinion, there is no better time than a change in season to stock up on basics.  So if you are in the market for a great cami (that comes in tons of prints and solids), then this is the one!

Also, don’t put those white jeans away now that Labor Day has come and gone.  They are perfectly acceptable all year long!

Fire In the Sky

Happy Friday everyone!  Remember how I said earlier in the week that I lost all of the outfit photos I had taken while we were on vacation?  Well thanks to my hubby, I was able to salvage the photos from one outfit. And while I am still sad about the others, one, is certainly better than none!  So with that said, I have to tell you guys that I am obsessed with this JCrew top.  I had been eyeing it for quite some time and immediately snatched it up when it went on sale.  The cute embroidered print reminds me of a pink and white Easter dress that I had when I was a little girl, and you all know how much I LOVE neon yellow-a little nostalgia and my favorite pop of color all rolled into one!  Plus, it’s a great statement top that can be easily dressed up or down.  And when the heat index is high, in my closet, easy, breezy, fun tops like these rule!

I’m sure you can tell from the photos, but it was really, really windy when we snapped these pics.  And while normally I would have just waited a day for better weather, the sky was so incredible that I just couldn’t pass up such a gorgeous back drop.  So please don’t mind the wind blown hair!

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Beanie Baby

I love a good hat.  In fact, on most winter weekends, you can almost always find me wearing one (most likely covering up helmet hair from a day on the slopes).  Not only are they an easy (and practical) accessory to throw on with just about any outfit, but they are perfect for this time of year when the temps start dropping (or when you just don’t feel like doing your hair)…

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  My hubby had a double header bike race this weekend, so ours revolved around biking.  But lucky for me, Cyclocross is a really fun event to watch, and my husband is having a great year-so it’s always exciting.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Graphic

I am really into graphic tees right now. Like, really into them. I love the idea of throwing on a tee-shirt back to a ripped up pair of jeans and then adding fancy heels and accessories to dress up the look. I guess maybe it makes me a feel a little rock and roll. Plus, it’s a great way to be super comfy while looking put together at the same time.

So I have to say, as much as I love graphic tee’s, I do find it a little difficult to find a good one.  It seems to me that more often than not, the sayings on them tend to be a little young, or too cliché for me to want to broadcast on my body.   So if you are on the hunt for one (and you should be!) the best luck I’ve had in finding cute, age appropriate graphic tee’s is at JCrew, JCrew Factory, American Eagle, and TJMaxx.

Hope you all had an amazing weekend.  Can you believe that it’s almost Labor Day?  I know that I sure can’t.

Tour of Utah

The Tour of Utah was this weekend and J and I were lucky enough to score VIP tickets to the stage 4 circuit race in downtown Salt Lake City on Friday evening. And because we knew thousands of people would be heading downtown for the event, we decided to ride our cruisers to the Capital building-the location of the Start/Finish. And while I obviously wanted to look nice for the event, I also had to be practical when choosing an outfit that could not only stand up to the heat, but that would also be comfortable for a bike ride as well. And I have to say, one of my favorite dresses of the summer did just the trick…

Pedal to the Metal

When J and I spent a few days in Red Lodge, MT on our way home from his grandmother’s funeral last week, one of our very favorite things about it was that we could ride our bikes from our hotel to wherever we needed or wanted to go-from daytime adventures to dinner and drinks out on the town. And fortunately for me, I had thought to pack my go-to chambray sleeveless shirt, and Marc Jacobs hobo (that also doubles as a cross body bag)-both of which made for perfect riding attire!

I can’t believe I am hitting the road again for work today.  Pretty sure I haven’t slept in my own bed for more than 4 nights in a row in the last month.  Or completely unpacked from any of my trips, if I’m really being honest.  🙂  Guess I know one thing I’ll be doing this weekend.

Hope you are having a wonderful week!
