Brights

In case you haven’t noticed, I am into all things floral lately.  I don’t know what it is, but I just can’t seem to help myself.  And stripes and florals together?  Pretty sure that is one of my favorite combos of all time.  Especially when you add in a little pop of leopard!

Denim on Denim

I’m always a little hesitant to wear two denim pieces together. It probably stems from growing up in Montana and not wanting to be caught in the dreaded “Canadian Tuxedo” (or as I am sure they call it, the “Montana Tuxedo”).  But I have found that if your two denims differ enough, then wearing denim on denim is perfectly acceptable, and even quite stylish given the current trend!  So take it from me and don’t be afraid to rock your denim pieces together-just make sure you have some contrast!

In-vest-ed

There was a period in time that I wore this denim vest so much that I had to make a conscious effort not to wear it so often. And I did such a good job of avoiding it that it ended up buried in the back of my closet and forgotten about for a period of time. And so today, I couldn’t be happier to welcome it back to the rotation!  To me, there is just something about a vest (whether it be denim, down, leather, fur, etc.), that just adds that extra pop to any outfit.   It’s just tough to beat those pieces in your wardrobe that make you look like you put in a little extra effort when you really actually didn’t…

I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend.  I was lucky enough that one of my very best friends came to the SLC to visit me.  And let me tell you, we had the most amazing time.  From shopping, to manicures, to eyelash extensions,  to fun dinners out on the town, and even a little Sundance Film Festival action, it will be a weekend that I will always fondly remember.  Sometimes there just isn’t anything better than girl time.

Tour of Utah

The Tour of Utah was this weekend and J and I were lucky enough to score VIP tickets to the stage 4 circuit race in downtown Salt Lake City on Friday evening. And because we knew thousands of people would be heading downtown for the event, we decided to ride our cruisers to the Capital building-the location of the Start/Finish. And while I obviously wanted to look nice for the event, I also had to be practical when choosing an outfit that could not only stand up to the heat, but that would also be comfortable for a bike ride as well. And I have to say, one of my favorite dresses of the summer did just the trick…

Vacay

J and I are officially on vacation-and boy does it feel good! And even though we’re only two days in, we’ve already gotten to do some pretty cool things. Including seeing my brother play at one of our favorite watering holes on Flathead Lake. And I must say, while living out of a suitcase for extended periods of time can tend to pose various challenges, I was happy that I thought to pack my favorite mullet skirt, graphic tee, and jean vest, which made for the perfect combination of comfy, yet effortlessly cool summer fashion to wear for the occasion…

Let Freedom Ring!

Just wanted to take minute and wish you all a very happy and safe 4th of July! I know I am personally looking forward to parades, the rodeo, a little time spent on the water, and lots of yummy food-all in celebration of this incredible country that I am lucky to call my home. God bless America!

Hooray For Chambray!

Oh how I love me some denim. Whether it’s a great pair of jeans, a denim jacket, a go-to pair of shorts, or a chambray shirt, I am a fan of it all. Maybe it’s my Montana roots, or maybe it’s just because denim is something everyone can wear. Either way, if you haven’t added a chambray shirt to your wardrobe yet this season, then it’s high time you took the plunge.

Now the key to wearing denim well is to select ONE piece of denim for your ensemble.  Unless of course they are contrasting shades of denim, and then it’s ok to do some layering. But I definitely prefer to pair mine back to black, white, or bright colors.

Versatility

One of my favorite things to do when looking in my closet is to pick a piece that I have already worn and challenge myself to completely re-style it giving it a totally different vibe and look-almost making it feel brand new again. So often times when I’m shopping, I try to select pieces that I know will be quite versatile and that I will be able to get a lot of use from. And when I saw this simple navy and white striped maxi at Macy’s back at the beginning of July, I knew it had potential to be worn a plethora of different ways, and no doubt has become one of the pieces in my closet that I have gotten the most use out of this summer. You can see how I styled it for a night of music at Sundance Resort in this post. And below, a totally different look for a morning at the farmer’s market-slightly dressed down with a fedora and my tried-and-true denim vest.

So I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend.  Minus a little rain, a broken air conditioner, and an adventurous bike ride in the rain and hail (which was actually pretty exciting!), J and I had a fantastic holiday weekend.  We grilled out, finished our deck, played lots of games (glad to know I can still beat him at tennis, if nothing else!), hit the farmer’s market, shopped, watched movies, and I even snuck in some reading and a little more shopping on my own.  And I have to say that with the schedule I have been keeping as of late, it was pretty incredible to just slow down and relax for a couple of days.  And the only thing better than a three day weekend?  A two day work week!  I am off to Detroit on Thursday morning to celebrate my Grandma’s 90th birhtday.  I can’t wait!!
