MashUp

Sometimes one of my favorite things about fashion is paring things together that don’t necessarily go together.  And the mashup of this skirt and top is a prime example. But I have to say, I am loving the unexpected contrast of neon back to classic black and white.  And can we talk about this necklace from Ily Couture for minute?  Talk about swoon-worthy!  It just might be my favorite accessory of the summer!

Birthday Balloons…

I have always wanted to do a blog post with balloons (thanks a lot, Pinterest), but the opportunity had just really never presented itself.  That is until yesterday, when J surprised me with flowers and balloons before we left town for a quick weekend birthday celebration. And so today, in honor of my birthday, I thought I would celebrate by accessorizing my outfit with a whole bunch of pink balloons.  Because if you can’t accessorize with balloons on your birthday, then really, when can you?

Candy Crush

Well no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t quite make it a week without these pumps making an appearance on the blog.  I just love the fun pop of color they bring to any outfit.  So if you don’t have a fun, candy colored pump in your wardrobe, then its high time to add a pair!  I promise,  you will get more wear out of them than you could even anticipate!

Lady In Red

First of all…CONGRATULATIONS to the winners of the Touchstone Crystal giveaway: Sarah Langlois , and Abby Peterson!!  Please email me at: abby_doll@hotmail.com so we can work out the details.  SO excited for you girls!

And second, I have to say I am grateful to even be getting a blog up today.  I had big regional meetings last week at work-which meant a lot of late nights and early mornings-definitely no time for blog photos.  And then over the weekend (when I had planned to catch up), I ended up with a terribly sick hubby AND the SLC had a whirlwind of crazy, stormy weather, including SNOW!  Let’s just say, the odds were not in my favor.  But fortunately, we were able to sneak in one quick outfit right as the sun went down last night.  And I have to say, I am loving my pretty red lace dress paired back to a deconstructed denim jacket (with a hoodie no less).  You know me, I always love an unexpected mix of casual and dressy…

About Face

I love, love, love the military trend. Most likely because I have an obsession with cute jackets. And what’s cuter than a bomber? Or a surplus jacket? They are the perfect topper to just about any outfit. And while I normally tend to gravitate towards shades of army green, I couldn’t help but fall in love with this navy number when I spotted it at Macy’s a couple of months back. And even though the temps are still pretty warm, I can already tell that this is going to be a fantastic staple in my fall wardrobe…

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!
