Neon

We have been having the rainiest weather here in Utah, which has made it really difficult to take outfit photos.  So my apologies for being a little quiet over here on the blog.  Hopefully once we get through this week, our normal sunny weather will decide to return to us!  But today, I wanted to share one of my favorite tops with you.  And not just because I love it, but because you can score it on MAJOR sale today!  Not only is it the perfect length (a little longer than most button downs), but it has super cute grosgrain ribbon trim, and is the perfect punch of color for both spring and summer (think of how cute it would look with white!!).  Link is below!





  Neon Top:  JCrew (use code: SALENEWS for an additional 30% off-also comes in white) | Skinnies: Paige Denim | Tassel Necklace: Jeweliq, LOVE this | Rings: Suz Somersall (here and here) | Cuff: Macy’s | Sunnies: Karen Walker | Bag: Tory Burch | Heels: INC (LOVE these, really comfy)

Hope you are all having a fantastic!  Thank you SO much for stopping by!

 

 

 

 

Montana Roots

I love a great camo print.  And I can’t help but wonder if it stems from my Montana roots.  But regardless of where my fondness for the print comes from, I am definitely happy that camo is still an important print this Fall season!

Salt Lake Magazine Feature

I was beyond thrilled when the sweet Fashion Editor from Salt Lake Magazine contacted me and asked if I would sit down with her for an interview about my blog and career in the fashion industry for their September/October issue.  And as you can imagine, of course I said yes!  What an honor to be able to talk about All Dolled Up and work with some of the amazing (and talented!) people behind the glossy publication!

And so today, I wanted to share with you the looks I styled for the photo shoot.  I had so much fun coming up with Fall inspired outfits for this project (even though it was a sweltering 100 degrees the day we shot!), and it was the perfect excuse to finally buy the tulle skirt from Space 46 Boutique that I had been eyeing for months.  And let me tell you, every girl should own a tulle skirt!

Black and White

I love the black and white trend this season.  And because black is such a staple (and something I know all of you already own in your own personal wardrobes), this should be an easy trend for anyone to get in on this season without necessarily having to pick up anything new.  And while black and white is a relatively safe trend to try, bordering on the more serious and sophisticated side of style, remember that it’s okay to have a little fun with it and think outside of the box too-like mixing graphic prints and stripes together.

Golden Hour

This past weekend, J and I had a little staycation up in Park City.  And even though it was officially the last weekend of summer, the Fall season has already crept into the mountains.  The leaves are starting to change colors and it was definitely jacket weather.  But since I’m not ready to give up dresses quite yet, I am extending their seasonality by pairing them back to denim and leather jackets.  And I’ve got to say, summer to fall transitional fashions are some favorite looks to put together!

Put A Vest On It

I am never, ever ready for summer to end, but I am always ready for fall fashion!  And even though the temps are still relatively warm, fall is definitely starting to creep into the air here in Utah and I can feel myself starting to gravitate towards darker colors, neutrals, denim, leopard, light jackets, and vests (of course)!  All of which are super easy key items to start to transition those summer outfits into fall! So if you are ready to get your fall wardrobe going but aren’t quite sure how, try pairing a vest back to your favorite tank and denim…

Derby Style

Even though I was born and raised out west, I did live in the south for a few years when I pursued a country music career and attended college at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee.  And let me just say, my years in the Music City were some of the best of my life. There is just something about the South that is so near and dear to me.  What can I say? I’m a country girl at heart. And because I especially love all of the incredible traditions that come from the South, J and I decided to throw a Derby party this year.  I have always wanted to host one, but haven’t had the chance since I moved to Utah.  But this year, it was the perfect excuse to get extra dressed up, enjoy the gorgeous weather, drink cocktails in the afternoon, and celebrate my birthday (a few days early) with all of our favorite people!  It was a great time had by all, and served as the perfect reminder to wear big, floppy hats more often!

Simple.

In an effort not to overload you all on color this week, I thought today I would post a more neutral outfit. Because after all, sometimes it’s true what they say, simple is best. And while I don’t always necessarily gravitate towards these types of vintagey tops, the fabric and drape of this one was just to pretty to pass by. You can also see how I styled it another way here

Switzerland

As much as I love to wear vibrant hues and accessorize with pops of color, sometimes I crave a more neutral palette. At the end of the day, sometimes it’s just hard to beat layers of monochromatic tones finished off with cognac accessories and gold jewelry…

Today I am headed off to San Francisco for a little business trip followed by a weekend of fun in my favorite city by the bay (complete with a quick trip to wine country)!  I lived in SF for 4 months on an extended work assignment last year.  so as you can imagine, I am pretty darn excited to get back!

Thanks for reading!
