My Vest Accessory

When I originally put this outfit together, it was sans vest. But one thing I have learned about blogging is that sometimes, the more layers and jewelry you pile one, the better the photos turn out. Apparently there are some instances where more is more! But I have to say that I think the vest really made this outfit complete, and not just for the sake of blog photos. And so, it should come as no surprise, that I am absolutely loving the vest trend again this summer. So if you haven’t already, denim or surplus, it’s time to add one to your closet!

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!

Resolutions

I don’t typically make New Year’s resolutions.  Instead, I try to continually find things I can work on and improve throughout the year-always striving to make myself better.  But this year, silly as it is, there is actually a resolution that I would like to make.  And that, my friends, is to wear more skirts. I always gravitate towards wearing skinnies, no matter the season, so this year I want to push myself out of my comfort zone and add more skirts and dresses to my life.

Truth be told, I had originally planned to wear my polka dot sweater and chambray shirt with black skinnies.  Which of course shouldn’t come as a surprise.  But instead, in an effort to stay true to my resolution (really, it’s only the second week of the year), I left my skinnies in the closet and pulled out an old favorite skirt instead.  And I must say I am very pleased with the result.  Maybe resolutions aren’t so bad after all…

Sunday Funday

One of my favorite things about Park City is summer Sunday afternoons. Main Street is always filled with people brunching and sipping cocktails, the market is vibrant and fun, and there is a different band or musician playing every few blocks. It is the perfect setting to make you feel like you are far, far away from the real world and the hustle and bustle of the city-life is just a little slower up there which always makes me feel like home.

And so, after an amazing weekend celebrating our anniversary, J and I obviously decided to spend our last day on Main Street taking in the scene, relaxing, and just enjoying the last few hours of our weekend getaway. And because it was such a special weekend for us, I got a little more dressed up than I normally would for a Sunday in PC. But none-the-less, my black lace skirt, neon tank, and feather earrings still felt perfect for the occasion. And while of course I love lace, I am feeling especially pleased with the purchase of this black lace skirt. Initially, I thought it would be a piece that I would only use for more dressy occasions, but I am loving that it is also possible to dress it down with the right accessories. It’s always important to have pieces in your wardrobe that can serve multiple purposes and this one is a great example.  And as an added bonus, it will be an awesome transitional piece into Fall (not that I’m ready to start thinking about that yet!)…
