Bell Sleeves and Pirate Shirts

If you follow me over on Insta (@alldolledupblog), you might know how much I LOVE the bell sleeve trend.  But I do have a confession.  Every time I put one on,  I can’t help but think of the Jerry Seinfeld episode with the pirate shirt.  I’m probably totally aging myself here, but you guys know what I’m talking about, right? So I have to ask, does this trend make anyone else think of the same thing??? And more importantly, is this a trend that you guys are into this Spring?  Leave a comment below-I’d love to know!

Hope you guys are having a fab week!

Floral

Well hello again, sweet friends.  It certainly has been a while since I’ve posted on the blog.  In case you missed it, I was in a bad car accident right after Christmas, and have been recovering from a pretty severe concussion for the last couple of months.  To be honest, it’s been a rough road.  I had absolutely no idea I’d be down and out for so long.  And while I’m still not back to my normal self, I am finally starting to make some progress. Thank goodness!

And now that I’m feeling a little better, I couldn’t be more excited to be teaming up with one of my go-to brands, Cabi clothing, to show you some of my favorite pieces from their Spring 2017 line.  If you follow me on Instagram, you know I’ve been on a floral kick lately.  So when I saw this perfect pink floral tank in the Cabi line, it was the first things I ordered.  And not only does it look great layered now, but it has a super cute neckline and I can’t wait to wear it during the summer months!  Definitely a favorite piece in my wardrobe.

Velvet Jumpsuit for NYE

I had good intentions of bringing you festive and sequin-filled NYE inspired posts all week.  But unfortunately, things don’t always go as planned, and I was involved in a pretty major car accident on Tuesday morning. While my car was totaled, I was fortunate enough to walk away from the accident with only a concussion and minor injuries.  And while I am grateful to be alright, it was also a good reminder of how precious life is.

And of course it’s got me thinking.  As events like these often do.  It’s so easy in this day and age to put together and present a perfectly curated life through social media.  But I’m feeling led to share with you guys that my life is anything but perfect.  And if I’m being totally honest, I can also tell you that 2016 has been the hardest, most challenging year of my life.  And I’ve really been struggling this week to wrap my head around how it could possibly be ending with a serious accident on top of everything else. But rather than let myself get down and discouraged (which I’ve totally been doing), I’m reminding myself in times like these, that it’s important to take a step back, take inventory of the blessings you DO have in life, find the joy in the hurt, the laughter in the messiness, surround yourself with those who love you most, and thank God for His grace, protection, forgiveness, and unfailing love.  That is after all, what this holiday season is all about, isn’t it?

In other (more fashion blog-worthy) news, how amazing would this green velvet jumpsuit be to wear to a NYE party (or any other party for that matter)?  If I’m feeling well enough to make it out on NYE this year, this is definitely what I’ll be wearing.  Fingers crossed!

Cheers to a better and brighter 2017!!

Brights

Recently I went through a phase where I couldn’t stop wearing neutrals.  Yet suddenly, I can’t seem to get enough of bright colors.  But I definitely can’t blame it on the spring-like weather, because it’s dumping snow here in Utah again this week!!!!! Regardless, it definitely feels good to be incorporating some brights (and fun print mixing) back into my wardrobe again, even if it is freezing!!!

Sun Drenched in Stripes

This outfit (or some sort of similar variation) is on serious repeat in my daily wardrobe: stripes, a surplus vest, my favorite skinnies, and leopard pumps.  Fall uniform perfection, if you ask me.  So if you are looking for an easy Fall look to live in or recreate, then I’d highly recommend this one!

Short Story

I am loving boyfriend shorts this season.  And because it has been a little cooler in the SLC the past few days, they have been a perfect choice to wear back to my favorite button-down shirts and wedges.  In fact, it’s felt like a bit of a summer uniform for me.  I mean really, what’s easier to put together than denim and gingham?
