Go Shortie

Denim shorts and gingham tops.  Probably one of the greatest summer combos of all time, if you ask me.  And this top is a new favorite in my closet.  I love the pretty tie detail on the sleeve, the cute off-the-shoulder detailing, and of course the classic navy gingham print.

Gingham

I love this little gingham top.  It’s such an easy, breezy piece to just throw on and go. And guess what?  It would be perfect to wear on the 4th of July!  It also comes in a few other colors and prints and is less than $15.  Definitely a great piece to add to your closet this summer!

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!!!

Staples

Yesterday I talked a little bit about the importance of having balance between classic and fashion pieces in your wardrobe.  But another important closet category that I didn’t mention, is staple pieces.  If you have been following this blog for any amount of time, then you know staples are something I talk about a fair amount, i.e. denim jackets, surplus vests, nude pumps, black handbags, dark wash skinny jeans, etc.  And so today, I wanted to highlight one of my personal favorite closet staples, and that is a casual long-sleeved black dress.

This closet staple is the perfect blank canvas, is easy (and comfy!) to throw on and go, and can be styled in a plethora of different ways.  So if you don’t own a casual long-sleeved black dress, then you are in luck, because I’ve listed my favorites below!

Gingham

This gingham romper was one of my very favorite purchases of the summer.  And because I’m not ready to put it away quite yet, I decided to change it up a bit and style it with a utility vest and booties to make it more appropriate for the Fall season.  And you know what?  It totally works and I am really loving the look.  What are some creative ways you guys transition your favorite summer pieces into cooler months?  I’d love to hear!

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?

Gingham

Gingham has always been one of my very favorite prints.  So when I saw that my favorite Portofino shirt from Express came in a light blue gingham this spring, it was an obvious choice to add to my wardrobe.  And let me tell you, I have already worn this shirt a ton AND have so many more ideas of how I will continue to style it different ways all summer long. But I want to know, what you are guys thinking of the gingham trend this season?

Minted

If you didn’t add anything in the shade of mint to your Spring/Summer wardrobe last year, then it should be at the top of your list this season. I know I for one, am happy to see that it’s still going strong this Spring.  It is such a beautiful, fresh hue, and looks fantastic back to so many different accent colors, skin tones, and pretty much every single hair color out there.  Mint really is the perfect complement to the warmer weather we all are either anxiously anticipating, or are already lucky enough to be enjoying…

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…

Casual Cool

Contrary to what you might think, I don’t get really dressed up very often. Obviously I love to write posts and share all of my fun outfit ideas with you guys, but truth be told, if you were to bump into me out running errands around the SLC, chances are you would find me wearing something similar to the below. In the summertime, my general uniform is a great pair of cutoffs (I’m especially partial to white) back to a tee, or a great button down (for a slightly more put together look). So when Justin and I had a mini-golf date with our littles followed by a trip to the new City Creek Center and beers on the patio at the Beer Hive, I knew for once exactly what I was going to wear (without really even putting any thought into it). And sometimes, simple as they are, those are often times my favorite outfits.

I am so in love withy the color of this JCrew shirt-and the fabric and gingham are a perfect summer combo. In fact I’m not at all surprised that this is actually called “The Perfect Shirt”.  So if you are looking for a great fitting, lightweight summer button down, I would highly recommend this one. Plus they have a huge variety of different colors and prints-something for everyone I’m sure!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!!
