Mad for Plaid

I love plaid.  Which is lucky for me, because it’s a key trend this fall season.  And while I am so excited for all of the different ways I have up my sleeve to style this beloved print, right now, I am loving it paired back to leather and chiffon.  A slightly masculine spin on a pretty fall dress, if you will (click here to see how I styled this dress last year)…

Camo Couture

Since I’m heading down south tomorrow, it seems I’ve got camo on my mind.  And believe it or not, camo just happens to be one of my very favorite prints.  Maybe it’s the Montana girl in me, or maybe it’s the years I spent below the Mason Dixon line-either way, I couldn’t be happier that it’s an important print for the season.  Kinda feels right up my alley-especially dolled up a little!

P.S. Can you believe it’s October already?  Holy cow!  Where on earth did the month of September go?

Date Night

I love a good date night outfit. And while I normally use date night as an excuse to wear a cute dress or skirt, sometimes you just can’t beat a good pair of jeans and a sparkly top. Especially when you add some fun accessories…

Citrus Punch

I would consider an outfit like the below to be my go-to look-a pretty button down, skinny jeans, a comfy pair of pumps, and some super fun accessories. In fact, this is the type of outfit that I constantly find myself gravitating towards-both in dressy (like this one) and casual versions. I guess I could call it my All Dolled Up uniform…

If you are looking for a perfect fitting button down that comes in a variety of colors, in a gorgeous floaty material, then the Express Portofino shirt is for you.  I am beyond obsessed with not only the fit and fabric of this lovely shirt, but also with the vast array of drool worthy colors that it’s offered-definitely something for everyone.

Hope your week is off to a good start.  Thanks for reading!

Inspiration Station

Often times when I put together an outfit, it’s because I am inspired by a pair of shoes, a handbag, an image I’ve seen, or in this case, a necklace. I am loving statement necklaces this spring, and this one is one of my favorites. I love the pretty flowers, chain length, and the unexpected and unique combination of mint and neon yellow. So much so in fact, that an entire outfit came to fruition because of it…

I just wanted to take a minute and send my love to Boston.  I feel so heartbroken by the events that transpired yesterday and can’t even begin to imagine the hurt and the devastation that the victims and their families are feeling right now.  And while I wish I had more to offer, I hope they know they have my support and prayers.

God bless you all today and in the days to come.

Arm Candy

I love me some arm candy, or an arm party, or a little wrist bling-whatever you want to call it. It’s such a fun (and affordable!) way to change up an outfit. And while of course anything goes, I am definitely finding myself gravitating towards the mix of girly and edgy. Specifically, bows and spikes paired together in perfect harmony. I mean really, where else can you get away with a combination like that?

Tassel Ho!

I love a good tassel necklace. Maybe it’s because I’m from Montana and they remind me of a (fashionable) bolo tie, or maybe it’s just because they feel so new and different this season. Either way, a tassel necklace is an easy piece for anyone to wear and something simple (and inexpensive) everyone should add to their wardrobe this spring!

Editing these photos only served to make me acutely aware of how anxious I am for the arrival of spring and summer.  Not only am I looking forward to warmer temps, sunshine, longer days, and fewer layers, but a little color on my pale skin definitely won’t hurt either!

Happy Wednesday!

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!

Denim and Lace

I LOVE denim shirts. The way I see it, wearing one is kind of like flipping your outfit upside down-just like a great pair of jeans, a great denim shirt goes with everything. And because I always love my favorite skinnies back to a lace shirt, this outfit combo was a no brainer…

I guess I figured since I still have a bit of a tan from our vacation I could get away with bare legs and boots.  But truth be told, tan or not, it was a little chilly to be without tights.  And I hate to say it, because we have a long ways to go, but boy am I ready for summer!!

Thanks for reading!
