Duster

I love a good duster cardigan.  But at only 5’3″, I tend to shy away from them because they typically overwhelm me.  Well thank goodness for Cabi.  Because like everything else they make, the moment I put this sweater on, I couldn’t believe how flattering it was.  Even on my short frame!  And I especially love the placement of the stripes, which make it feel like a really fresh take on an old classic.  A definite must-have for any wardrobe!

Happy, happy Friday sweet friends!  AND happy St. Patrick’s Day!  Does anyone have any fun plans tonight?

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.

Flower Power

I love a bold floral print.  Especially when mixed with a good stripe.  It has been one of my favorite ways to print mix for years, and I don’t see myself tiring of this combo anytime soon.  So if you are still feeling on the fence, or unsure about how to print mix, pairing a bright floral back to a stripe is a really easy place to start.

Hope you all had a great weekend!  I was sick in bed, so my weekend was pretty uneventful, to say the least.  I can’t remember the last time I was down for the count like that.  No fun at all.  Hoping I’ll feel back to normal this week.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Abby

P.S. And please excuse my crazy hair in these photos! It was super windy when we were shooting!

Easter Best

When I was a little girl, my mom always dressed me to the nines for Easter Sunday-pretty dress, white gloves, and of course an Easter bonnet.  And while I don’t bust out gloves or a new bonnet for Easter Sunday anymore, it is still ingrained in me to get dressed up for the occasion.  And what better outfit for Easter Sunday than a candy colored sweater and pretty floral skirt?

Sequin Peplum

I knew the second I saw this top in person that I had to have it.  I had seen it on the Banana Republic website, but didn’t realize just how gorgeous it was until I saw it in the store. This top is absolutely the prettiest mix of a sequined floral print, with just a touch of neon piping.  And I have to say, it is one of those extra special pieces that only seem to come around every once in a while. And even though sometimes they take  a little seeking out, every girl should have a couple of these extra special pieces in her wardrobe!

Happy Spring!

In honor of the first day of Spring yesterday, it seemed fitting to break out my favorite floral wedges and a little hot pink.  And while the weather here was so perfect and exactly as the first day of spring should be, I can’t help but find myself wishing for summer.  Is that crazy?  Or is there anyone else out there that feels the same way?

The Blues

I know that for most, blue is a favorite or go-to color.  But for me, it’s never been a super common hue in my wardrobe (outside of my denim).  That is until this season.  For some reason, as of late, I have been craving all things and all shades of blue.  From shoes, to bags, to clothes, I think it’s pretty safe to say that this spring, I’ve definitely got the blues…

Floral Frenzy

It turns out that florals aren’t just for old couches and drapes anymore. But rather, they are a spring fashion must. And while the boldness of an all-over floral pant or top might seem a little overwhelming, it is definitely a trend worth trying. My favorite way to tackle this trend? Colorblocked.

Spring Has Sprung

This weekend felt like spring here in the SLC. The sun was shining, the birds were singing, and all of the snow in my yard finally melted. And so of course, inspired by sunshine (and gloriously longer days), I decided it was high time to pull my florals out of their winter storage and put them back into rotation for the spring season…

I love this time of year.  It’s always ripe with anticipation and the promise of warmer weather just around the corner.  And while I’m sure we’ll still have another snow storm or two here along the Wasatch front, I fully plan to take advantage of this perfect spring weather while it lasts.

Happy Monday!
