Girl About Town

My hubby races bikes every Saturday in the Fall.  And after his race, we usually like to find a new place somewhere in the city to either grab a beer or a coffee and a treat to celebrate.  It’s nothing too big or significant, but one of my favorite weekend traditions none-the-less.  And because our Saturday’s are so laid back, my outfits tend follow suit and are generally some variation of the below.  Jeans, puffy vest, booties, repeat…

Mad Hatter

I can’t stop wearing hats this Fall.  They might just be my favorite trend.  And swingy, comfy sweaters? Another closet staple.  So if you are looking to update your wardrobe this season, I highly recommend considering a  new floppy hat and a comfy, cozy sweater (or two) in a rich jewel tone.

Blanketed

I am a big fan of the blanket scarf trend.  When the temps drops and there is snow on the ground, there is just something so cozy and comforting about wrapping up in one.  So when I was in SF a couple of weeks ago for business meetings, I popped into Zara to check out their assortment for the season (since they are the authority in chic blanket scarves).  And I have to say that while I was smitten with the entire collection (and a lot of other things in the store, for that matter), the scarf below was the one that stole my heart.  And now that it has finally cooled off in the SLC, I can already tell that it is going to be a go-to item in my closet this season!

In-Vested

I.  Can’t.  Stop.  Wearing.  Vests.  And I sure hope you don’t mind!  Because if I’m not careful, between vests and plaid, I just might become some sort of broken record of a fashion blogger this season!  And while I am pretty much loving any vest that comes my way,  I want to know, what are you guys drawn to this season, solids or prints?

Think Pink

I love that pretty much anything goes this Fall season.  And when I say anything, I mean hot pink and florals aren’t just for the spring and summer months anymore.  And while l love my neutrals this time of year, I am finding a pop of color to be a welcome addition to my Fall wardrobe.  But I want to know, what do you all think of wearing bright colors and pastels during the cooler months?

Booties

Today, I want to talk about booties.  They are everywhere this season and I am absolutely in love with the trend.  BUT I’ll be honest, I find booties very difficult to wear.  I workout and bike and ski a lot, so I don’t have super skinny legs.  I’m also short (not quite 5’4″), so I find that most booties can tend to make me look thick in the legs and even shorter than I already am!  And that is definitely not look I’m going for!  Ha! I’ve tried on countless pairs and always love them on the rack and on other people, but seldom like them on myself.  However, I have finally found the trick to the perfect bootie for all you gals out there who are struggling with this trend like me.  And the secret, my friends? Booties that dip down in the front, or that are a little closer to a pump than a bootie (like the pair in today’s post-a shootie, if you will).  Seriously, I can’t tell you what a difference a little dip in the front will make for you and the length it will give you back in your legs.  So if you have been feeling anything like me when it comes to booties-don’t give up!  I’ve linked up some of my favorite, and (more importantly) flattering booties below!

Plaid To The Bone

Every fall (it never fails), I become plaid obsessed.  Something about cool weather, football, chili, tailgating, scarves, and boots makes want to break out all of my favorite plaid shirts.  So my apologies in advance if you are seeing an abundance of plaid on the blog this season, but I just can’t help myself.  And if you don’t have any plaid in your closet, then be sure to pick up a few pieces this season.  Some of my favorite place to shop for plaid? JCrew, JCrew Factory, American Eagle, Madewell, and Ralph Lauren Denim and Supply.

Casual Friday

Stripes, camo, and leopard…together?  You bet!  Nothing better than mixing a few favorite prints.  And to sweeten the pot?  Why not add a vest, your favorite denim, and some basic gold jewelry.  And voila!  You are ready to take on the weekend in comfortable, casual style!

And ladies, if you are in the SLC, a new Uptown Cheapskate location just opened up in Sugarhouse!  I had the privilege of attending their grand opening last week, and let me tell you, the store is darling and they have so many fantastic things in stock right now!  So if you are out doing a little shopping this weekend, be sure to stop by and check them out! OR if you need a little extra cash, they will buy your gently used, name brand clothing from you.  Now how sweet is that?

Happy weekend friends!

 

 

 

 

 

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!

The Road Less Traveled

Fall in Utah is my favorite.  Not only is it absolutely gorgeous, but it seems to last forever and the weather is unbelievably amazing.  I seriously can’t imagine a better place to be for the months of September and October.  And with the fall foliage at a frenzy right now, I am trying desperately to enjoy every second of it before the snow starts to fly-which means weekends spent at the farmer’s market, watching bike races, and checking out all of the beautiful fall colors.  And I have to say that cozy sweaters and comfy booties have been my go-to weekend uniform as of late-particularly if they are cognac and gray…
