Fall Uniform

This look is a pretty consistent go-to for me during the fall season.  In fact, I’d even go as far as to call it my fall uniform.  And not only is it an easy combo to throw on (while still making you look put together), but it also gives you layering options, keeping you prepared for varying temperatures this time of year!

Friendsgiving

Looking for something to wear to a casual Thanksgiving dinner with friends this week?  Then look no further than today’s outfit!  Plaid is always a perfect choice for the holidays.  And pairing your favorite plaid shirt with a denim vest and destroyed skinnies creates an outfit that’s an easy choice for eating, hanging out, watching football, playing games, and giving thanks!

Layers

We have had such a mild fall here in the SLC, that I almost forgot how brutal it can be to have to take blog photos during the winter months.  But boy, was I sure reminded in a hurry when we shot these photos on Saturday.  I guess it’s time to break out the winter coats, and pile on the layers.  And speaking of layers?  Surplus vests over plaid and flannels is still a combo at the top of my list this season…

Peppermint Plaid

When I think of holiday fashion, I think about dressing up-sequins and sparkles, high heels and statement jewelry, and lots and lots of red.  But one thing I don’t often plan, or think about for that matter, is a comfy, cozy outfit to wear for lounging around on Christmas in between opening presents and dinner festivities. And so today, I wanted to share a look that is festive enough to wear for the holidays, while still being super comfy and at the same time!

Come Fly With Me

I am on the road a lot for work. And because I am in stores when traveling and have to wear all black, dressing for travel tends to be a fairly easy task. But when I travel for leisure, I find dressing for flights is not quite as easy. Comfort is key, but for me, sweat pants are definitely not an option. Instead, I like to select outfits that are not only comfortable and casual, but that are also just fashionable enough to have the ability to take me straight from the airport to lunch, dinner, drinks, or wherever I might need to go when I land!

J and I spent this past weekend in North Dakota visiting his family before his parents make the move to Montana in April.  It was a bittersweet trip, but we had a fabulous time and shared lots of laughs and memories with two very special grandma’s, Justin’s mom and dad, and an amazing group of aunties, uncles, cousins, and extended family.  It was a very special weekend and I am feeling extra blessed to have married into such a wonderful family! 

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!

Teen Spirit

Oh, the ’90’s. NOT my favorite era in fashion. Maybe it was because I was an angsty teen trying to navigate my way through junior high and high school, or maybe my sense of style was a little more girly than grunge (thank goodness for Clueless!!). But I must say that I am enjoying revisiting certain pieces made famous during that decade-specifically flannels. Not only are they comfy, but they are super cute and look fantastic back to fun jewelry, boyfriend jeans, and a great pair of pumps. A little grunge glam if you will. Which in my book, is hands down much better than just plain old grunge.

Flannel Animal

I love a good flannel. In fact, if I could perfectly describe my fall/winter everyday style, the below outfit would be it. As much as I love to dress up, when the temperature drops, I always reach for a great pair of boots, my favorite pair of jeans, a cute flannel, and a cozy scarf to keep me warm on snowy, winter days…

As you can see from these photos, the temperature definitely took a tumble in the SLC this weekend.  We went from 72 degrees on Thursday, to a huge snowstorm that started on Friday morning and lasted all weekend-dropping  over 30 inches of snow at our house!  So not only was I forced to get out all of my winter apparel and shoes, but the snow shovels came out too.  If this is any indication of the winter we are going to have, then the skiing is going to be fantastic.  I can’t wait!

Happy Veterans Day!
