Fall Sweater

One of my favorite things about living in Utah is the Fall season.  Typically the weather is balmy and the colors in the mountains are off the hook.  But this year, we got our first snow a little earlier than usual, which made for some especially gorgeous scenery this weekend, and a drastic drop in temperature, leaving me scrambling to pull out some warmer Fall layers.  Thank goodness I had recently picked up this sweater from Nordstrom.  And I have to say, if you are going to buy one thing for your closet this season, it should be this sweater.  Not only is it less than $40, but it comes in a ton of colors and is the perfect staple to add to your wardrobe.

Easter Traditions

Every year since I can remember, I have looked forward to getting a new dress for Easter Sunday.  When I was growing up, my mom would always take me shopping for something new, which most likely involved gloves and a bonnet.  And to this day, it’s a tradition that I still adhere to and love (well maybe minus the gloves and the bonnet!).

And this year, when I started looking for a dress, Chic Wish was the first place I started.  Lately, they have become my go-to for pretty dresses, skirts, and oh-so feminine tops.  They offer gorgeous pieces that are fantastic quality without breaking the bank.  So if you are looking for something pretty and unique, be sure to check them out.

Dress: Chic Wish c/o AND it’s under $55!!! (it runs a little small in the arms/shoulders; I am normally a size small, or 4/6, and am wearing a large in this dress-but the quality is FANTASTIC!)

Bracelets: Tiffany and Co., Stella & Dot, JCrew

Sunnies: Prada (obsessed!)

Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs (old), LOVING this

Heels: Banana Republic (SUPER comfy!), also own and love these

And on a more serious note, if you live in the SLC and are looking for a place to attend an Easter service, or if you are just curious about Jesus and a God who is crazy about YOU (no matter what baggage you THINK you might have), then come, just as YOU are, for what is bound to be an amazing experience at Antioch SLC (and if you aren’t in the SLC, that’s ok-there are Antioch Churches all over the country!).  To be 100% real with you guys, the past few months have been proven to be a pretty challenging season in my personal life, and I have found so much grace and solace through Antioch.  It’s truly a special place, and I have a feeling Easter is going to be pretty incredible. The service is at 5pm on Sunday at the Falls Event Center at Trolley Square.  I will be there and would love to see some of your beautiful faces!  So be sure to come and say “hi” if you decide to check it out.

Antioch

Happy Friday, my sweet friends, and happy Easter weekend!  Love you guys!!!

Abby

 

The Bomb

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of a great surplus jacket.  And you know what else I love?  A good bomber jacket.  I really find that this time of year, jackets are just my jam.  Whether you wear one with a dress, or style it back to jeans, jackets are the quintessential layering piece for the always unpredictable Spring weather!DSC_5376 DSC_5375 DSC_5409 DSC_5437 DSC_5431 DSC_5403 DSC_5399 DSC_5424 DSC_5414 DSC_5469Jacket: Make Me Chic c/o (wearing a size small for reference)

Dress: Nordstrom (obsessed with these AND they are under $50! see how I styled it in pink here, and in red here)

Necklaces: Stella & Dot (old), LOVE this

Cuff: Stella & Dot

Bag: Marc Jacobs (old), OBSESSED with this

Sunnies: Prada

Booties: BCBG, LOVE these for Spring

Happy Hump Day friends!

xoxo,

Abby

 

 

 

Short Story

I am loving boyfriend shorts this season.  And because it has been a little cooler in the SLC the past few days, they have been a perfect choice to wear back to my favorite button-down shirts and wedges.  In fact, it’s felt like a bit of a summer uniform for me.  I mean really, what’s easier to put together than denim and gingham?

Girl About Town

My hubby races bikes every Saturday in the Fall.  And after his race, we usually like to find a new place somewhere in the city to either grab a beer or a coffee and a treat to celebrate.  It’s nothing too big or significant, but one of my favorite weekend traditions none-the-less.  And because our Saturday’s are so laid back, my outfits tend follow suit and are generally some variation of the below.  Jeans, puffy vest, booties, repeat…

The Road Less Traveled

Fall in Utah is my favorite.  Not only is it absolutely gorgeous, but it seems to last forever and the weather is unbelievably amazing.  I seriously can’t imagine a better place to be for the months of September and October.  And with the fall foliage at a frenzy right now, I am trying desperately to enjoy every second of it before the snow starts to fly-which means weekends spent at the farmer’s market, watching bike races, and checking out all of the beautiful fall colors.  And I have to say that cozy sweaters and comfy booties have been my go-to weekend uniform as of late-particularly if they are cognac and gray…

Essential Fall

Every year when fall rolls around, there are a couple of key elements that I always seem to gravitate towards (especially on the weekends).  And in no particular order, those items are: a basic long-sleeved gray tee, a novelty vest, destroyed dark denim, and cognac booties.  And because these items are on constant rotation in my closet this time of year and incredibly versatile for the Fall season, today I wanted to share them with all of you!
