Cozy

Scarves have always been a favorite accessory of mine in the winter.  But this gorgeous pink number just might be my favorite scarf.  Ever.  Not only do I love the color, but the material is so incredibly soft and cozy.  It really is the perfect statement accessory for colder weather, AND it makes me feel like I’m wrapped up in a cloud.

Cupcake

I think it might be safe to say that I’ve never met a stripe I haven’t liked.  And this cute little striped cupcake skirt from H&M has been an obvious favorite in my closet.  Like leopard, stripes can be used as a neutral-particularly when they are black and white.  So looking for pieces like this to add to your closet will give you a lot of different options for creating outfits with items you already own!

Olive

I love olive green-particularly with leopard and gold jewelry.  It is a combo that I often find myself reaching for-whether in the summer or the winter.  And what do you know?  My favorite denim jacket is making yet another appearance on the blog!  Hopefully you guys aren’t too sick of it yet.  Ha! Like I always say, a denim jacket is an important investment piece to add to your wardrobe.   Not only are they versatile, but they go with just about anything, and those are the smartest pieces you can add to your closet!

Layers

We have had such a mild fall here in the SLC, that I almost forgot how brutal it can be to have to take blog photos during the winter months.  But boy, was I sure reminded in a hurry when we shot these photos on Saturday.  I guess it’s time to break out the winter coats, and pile on the layers.  And speaking of layers?  Surplus vests over plaid and flannels is still a combo at the top of my list this season…

ModCloth and All Dolled Up

Mod Cloth Evening of Extravagance Dress
 
I am so excited to be teaming up with ModCloth today as a part of their Polyvore outfit challenge!  If you are familiar with ModCloth, then you will know why I was so thrilled when they contacted me.  And if you aren’t familiar with this fantastic online retailer, then run (don’t walk!) to their website.  NOW!  Trust me, you won’t be disappointed.
And with that, today I am bringing you my first challenge.  And that was to style the beautiful Evening of Extravagance Dress.  And I have to say, with Valentine’s day just around the corner, I couldn’t help but be inspired to pair it back to red and leopard.  Awfully fitting, don’t you think?
You can shop my look through the links above, or create your own at ModCloth!
Happy Thursday Dolls!
 

A Few of My Favorite Things

I love finding fashion inspiration on Pinterest and Instagram.  And that is precisely where I stumbled upon the jacket and peplum top that I’m wearing in this post.  Both were at the top of my shopping list this fall, and while I didn’t anticipate wearing them together, I am loving the structure and lines of the jacket back to the flirty and almost futuristic ruffle of the peplum. And while my hubs is a big fan of the jacket, peplum remains one of those styles that he just can’t wrap his head around. I guess we can add it to that list of fashions (along with fur vests and maxi dresses) that men just don’t understand…

I LOVE the day before Thanksgiving.  In fact, I love the day before just about any holiday.  What can I say?  I am an anticipation kind of girl.

   And while there is so much I am thankful for, this year I am especially grateful for each and every one of you-my readers.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for stopping by, your engagement, your words of encouragement, for the friendships we are creating, and for all of the support!   All Dolled Up would not be possible without you!

Wishing you and your families a wonderful, safe, and joyous Thanksgiving.

Leopard

Leopard makes everything better. Well not really, but it does make just about every outfit better. So if you are looking for a quick and easy way to take an otherwise simple outfit up a notch, then try adding a leopard belt, purse, scarf, or even a pair of leopard shoes. And I promise you, it will do just the trick…

J and I are heading to Vegas today for a bike race and a mini-vacation.  And I have to say, I am so looking forward to getting out of town for a few days and enjoying some pool time, a little shopping, excellent food, and a couple of shows.  Be sure to follow along on Instagram to keep up with all of our adventures!

Transition

Transition
 
1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 
 
I hate to admit it, but fall is in the air.  And as I feel the crispness start to infiltrate early mornings and late evenings, I can’t help but find myself drawn to more transitional pieces.  Particularly anything leather, leopard, or with studs.
 
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!
 
 

Stand Out

Every gal needs a statement pair (or two) of shoes in her closet. And if bags are your thing (like they happen to be mine), then a statement bag is a great investment piece as well. Because on those days when you don’t feel like putting much in effort, accessories are the best (not to mention easiest) way to dress up an otherwise simple outfit…

If you are shopping for your first pair of statement shoes, or looking to add another pair to your collection, I highly recommend a good leopard print shoe.  While they are still the perfect stand out piece in an outfit, leopard also works as a neutral and goes back to just about anything!

Thanks for stopping by!

Leather and Lace

There is just something about the combination of leather and lace. It’s tough, yet sweet, rock and roll, yet sophisticated. Really, I could go on. And while it’s a pairing that works for a multitude of occasions, I have to say it feels pretty darn perfect for a cool, rainy day…
