Salt Lake Magazine Feature

I was beyond thrilled when the sweet Fashion Editor from Salt Lake Magazine contacted me and asked if I would sit down with her for an interview about my blog and career in the fashion industry for their September/October issue.  And as you can imagine, of course I said yes!  What an honor to be able to talk about All Dolled Up and work with some of the amazing (and talented!) people behind the glossy publication!

And so today, I wanted to share with you the looks I styled for the photo shoot.  I had so much fun coming up with Fall inspired outfits for this project (even though it was a sweltering 100 degrees the day we shot!), and it was the perfect excuse to finally buy the tulle skirt from Space 46 Boutique that I had been eyeing for months.  And let me tell you, every girl should own a tulle skirt!

Down On the Farm

Our weather has been a little crazy the past few days (nice one minute, then raining, or snowing the next!), so between that, and our busy schedules, it’s been a little hard to coordinate for blog photos this week. So yesterday after work, J and I decided to meet at a beautiful historic farm pretty close to our house.  And even though it was freezing cold while we were shooting, I loved the location and can’t wait to shoot more photos there-even if we did get chased down by some whopping big snow geese!

And do you know what else I am loving? The simplicity of today’s outfit.  Black and white is all the rage this season, and I love it paired back to simple chambray, nude pumps, and a bold lip.  Another one of those looks that is so easy to put together, but makes you looked you really put some effort in!

Glam

I’ve learned a lot about my own personal style since I started on the journey of writing this blog.  I’ve learned that I like pants and jeans.  A lot.  I only like to wear dresses and skirts in the warm summer months.  I hate tights. But I really like button down shirts.  I love jewelry and accessories, but even though I own a lot of fun costume jewelry (and good jewelry too), I find that I tend to gravitate towards the same pieces on a daily basis.  And while I probably dress up a little more than most of my friends, I would still define my style as casual.  I’ve learned that glam isn’t necessarily a go-to look for  me, but it is definitely one that I enjoy every now and again-especially when I feel like changing things up during the winter months.  And I have found that perhaps the easiest, no-fuss way to achieve a glam look (while still maintaining a casual vibe), is pairing a  faux (of course!) fur vest, a pair of over-the-knee boots, some chic gold jewelry, and a bold red lip back to a simple sweater and favorite pair of jeans.  A glam look that even the most casual of us gals can easily achieve…

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  I have been miserably sick, but still managed to salvage somewhat of a decent weekend-with the highlight being soaking my aches and cough away in the hot tub with Christmas music playing in the background, and snow falling all around.  Sick or not, this really is the most wonderful time of the year!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Neon+Surplus

I love pairing the unexpected together. And while neon plus army surplus might not be something you would automatically think to pair up, together they just might be one of my new favorite combos of the summer. Plus, if you follow this blog, then you know I can’t get enough of this vest and LOVE coming up with new ways to style it (see it here, and here)…
