Leopard and Lace

I love a good shift dress.  And this placed print dress with lace trim from Express is an all-time favorite.  Plus, if you don’t own this jacket yet, you NEED to ASAP.  I’ve had it for a couple of seasons and it’s so good.  I’ve even purchased it in a couple of other colors too. The fit is flattering, the material looks expensive, it goes with everything, and it’s under $100. Say what??!! In my opinion, this jacket is definitely the best value item you can add to your wardrobe this season.

White dresses are all the rage this summer.  And I have to say, this is a trend that I am more than happy to jump on board with!  Because while I always love a good splash of color, sometimes you really just can’t beat a white and neutral ensemble.

Leather and Lace

I love this time of year when I can transition my summer dresses into the Fall season.  And even more than that, I love that I don’t have to put my white items away after Labor Day!  Because as perfect as this white lace dress was to wear during the summer months, I actually prefer it dressed up with Fall ready accessories.  And if you didn’t buy this FANTASTIC faux leather jacket last year (it is my absolute FAVORITE), it’s not too late, because Nordstrom brought it back again this season.  It really is just that good (and it’s under $100)!

Neon Crush

Clearly I am obsessed with neon yellow right now.  It is such a bright and happy color and just oozes summer time to me.  So when I saw this neon yellow lace dress at JCrew, I knew it was the perfect thing to add to my closet.  And because I wanted to be able to wear it not just on special occasions, but on casual ones too, pairing it back to an uber cool surplus vest seemed like just the ticket to tone it down a notch.  And if you’re a regular follower of this blog, then you know I love a good completer piece.  But be sure to check back later this week, as I’ll be showing you how I wore this dress without the vest too!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  I have to tell you guys, my travel schedule has been so crazy, between vacation, work, and a bike race this weekend for the hubs, I woke up in 5 (5!!!) different town last week.  So I couldn’t be happier that I am going to be home (and sleeping in my own bed!) for the next two weeks!  Hallelujah!

Happy Monday, dolls!

 

 

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…

Color of the Year

My birthday falls in the month of May, which of course means that emeralds are my birth stone. And emerald green also happens to be one of my favorite colors. So you can imagine how thrilled I was when emerald was announced as the color of 2013. It’s a tough color not to love and I can’t wait to add more pieces in this rich, gorgeous hue to my wardrobe…
