Short Story

I used to think the combo of shorts and heels together was kind of silly.  But I have to admit, I am a total convert and wearing heels and shorts together is a summer staple for me. When the weather heats up, I am all about fashion short cuts, and adding heels to any outfit (specifically shorts), is a perfect and easy way to glam up a super casual look…

Boom Goes The Dynamite

I love this sweatshirt.  In fact, it was the only piece I ended up buying (well, keeping) from the 3.1 Phillip Lim and Target collaboration this past Fall.  I love how playful and fun it is and I especially love that current fashion has made it perfectly acceptable to wear a good old sweatshirt back to boyfriend jeans, red lipstick, and high heels.

I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend!  If you follow me on Instagram (alldolledupblog if you don’t), then you know ours was spent enjoying the incredible Utah back country.   We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful place and so blessed to be able to enjoy it to the fullest.  Now if only the weekends would last a little longer…

Happy Monday!

Boots

I have a slight obsession with cognac boots-or more specifically these cognac boots.  I wear them more than any other piece of footwear that I own and I am feeling pretty bummed that they are all but about worn out.  And because I knew this would most likely be their last season, I have been on the hunt for a replacement pair all fall.  And surprisingly I have had absolutely zero luck.  Maybe I’ve set my standards too high, but how hard could it possibly be to find a pair in the right shade of cognac with a low heel (wedge or stacked), wide enough to fit my calves, that go with everything, and are neither too dressy, nor too casual?  Apparently it’s nearly impossible.  Looks like a trip to the cobbler is in my very near future-I need all the help I can get prolonging the life of these babies…

The It Factor

There is always an “it” piece for me every season. Okay, well maybe a few different, “it” pieces. But whether it’s a pair of shoes, a new handbag, or a some sort of fabulous accessory, there are always bound to be a couple of key things that will top my wish list and be on constant rotation in my closet. And I have to say that this season, it’s safe to say that my pretty rosette necklace is going to be one of those pieces…

I initially fell in love with this necklace when I spotted it in JCrew at the beginning of the season.  But as enamored as I was, I just couldn’t bring myself to pay the hefty retail price tag for it.  And boy am I glad that I waited.  Not only did I get an amazing deal on the T+J version (which is excellent quality, by the way), but I was also able to pick it up in another color. I am going to have so much fun styling this necklace over the next couple of months-I can’t wait!

Neon Dream

It sure was a busy weekend for the Doll family here in the SLC. Two birthday celebrations, two barbeques, and one girl’s night out in Park City made for lots of good memories and laughs with friends. And on top of all of the fun , the weather finally decided to cooperate. So to kick off a weekend full of sunshine and celebrations, I thought it was only fitting to break out one of my very favorite color combinations of the season-neon yellow and grey…

I have been on the hunt for a pair of metallic pumps for the last couple of months.  But since my guess is this will be a fleeting trend (and I’m trying to save up for sandals!), I wanted to find an affordable option.  So I was beyond thrilled when I stumbled upon this pair from Target on sale for only $14.95.  And not only were they a fantastic bargain, but they are really comfortable too.  Talk about an amzing deal!!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!
