Floral Detail

This summer, one of my very favorite trends is white dresses.  And I especially love the dress in today’s post, because not only is it great quality for less than $35, but the pretty floral detail makes it extra-special. Plus, it’s easy to dress up with a swipe of red lipstick and some fun lace up heels, or simple to dress down with a nude lipgloss and gladiator flats.

Gingham

You guys! I love this dress SO much.  I was totally on the fence about it before I tried it on, but now that it’s arrived, I seriously can’t seem to stop thinking of different ways to style it.  I love that you can dress it up or dress it down, and that it lends itself well back to a pop of color.  The possibilities really are endless.  And if you’ve been following my blog for a while, then you know that I love adding items to my wardrobe that present multiple outfit options.  That is the best, and most cost efficient way to build your wardrobe!

Mad Hatter

I can’t stop wearing hats this Fall.  They might just be my favorite trend.  And swingy, comfy sweaters? Another closet staple.  So if you are looking to update your wardrobe this season, I highly recommend considering a  new floppy hat and a comfy, cozy sweater (or two) in a rich jewel tone.

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!

Spring Must-Haves (for your feet!)

Before I became an Executive with Macy’s, I was a Senior Footwear Buyer at both Sundance Catalog and Overstock.com.  So it should come as no surprise that I really (I mean really) LOVE shoes!  And so today, because footwear is off the chain this spring, I wanted to share my favorite (and affordable!) picks of the season with all of you…Spring Shoes

Polka Dots

There was a period in time when I went a little overkill on the whole polka dot thing, so I made a conscious effort to cut back.  And in doing so, it’s been quite a while since I posted a polka dot look on the blog.  So after a nice little hiatus, I finally feel like now is the appropriate time to bring polka dots back to All Dolled Up!  Not to mention that it has been unseasonably warm here in Utah this week, and this sweater is the perfect transitional piece that feels fitting for a winter that is beginning to feel an awful lot like spring…

Mustard + Leopard

I LOVE the combination of leopard and mustard yellow.  It is hands down one of my very favorites ever. And while I would normally pair this combo back to black, I am loving the added element that a dark wash denim brings to this look…

Fall Florals

When I think florals, I definitely think Spring.  But for whatever reason, I have been finding myself drawn to bright colors and flowery patterns this Fall season.  Maybe it’s denial about the cooler months ahead, or maybe it’s my love for color.  But either way, I am kind of digging breaking out some of my favorite Spring pieces in the month of November…

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!
