Hooded Parka

I have to say, even though I grew up in Montana, and now live in Utah (making me a seasoned winter veteran), I am having a hard time getting used to the cold this year.  So thank goodness for hooded parkas with faux-fur trim, and cozy sweaters (this one is super soft and on major sale) to keep me warm!

Dolled Up

I love getting dolled up.  And the holiday season presents exactly that opportunity.  But living in a state with a cold winter climate, sometimes I feel like I don’t have any coats or jackets that look or feel all that glamorous.  So for quite a while, I have been on the hunt for a great (and affordable) faux fur animal print coat-and I am happy to report that I have finally found one (AND that it costs less than $65)!!! Not only is it super cozy (it reminds me of my favorite faux fur throw), but  I love the vintage feel of it, and the idea of pairing it back to great heels and a dress for a NYE party, or wearing it with boots, skinny black pants, and a silk top (like I did for a friend’s casual wedding reception over the weekend)…

On another note, can you BELIEVE tomorrow is NYE and that yet another year has come and gone?  As cliche as it might sound, I just can’t believe 2014 is already just about over. BUT I always look forward to all of the possibilities that a new year brings. Kind of exciting, don’t you think?

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!  Thank you so much for stopping by!!!!

Holiday Casual (and an amazing skincare giveaway!)

This week I want to show you guys three different looks to wear for your Thanksgiving festivities.  Whether your dinner is a casual affair, or a dressier event, this weeks posts will hopefully provide some inspiration to help you dress for any Thanksgiving occasion!  And today, I wanted to start with a super comfy, casual look (similar to what I will be wearing for our Thanksgiving feast!).  I mean really, what could be better than pairing your favorite leggings with a comfy tunic and over-the-knee boots?  A look as comfy as pajamas, but totally appropriate for any holiday meal. And be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post to learn about my beloved skin care regiment and your chance to win some of my favorite products!

Leopard Love

You know me, I love leopard.  So when I spotted this jacket while I was in SF for business meetings a couple of weeks ago, I knew it was a perfect addition to my closet.  And when everyone asked about it when I posted it on my Instagram last week (follow me at @alldoledupblog if you haven’t already!), I knew it had to make an appearance on the blog….

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…

Giveaway!

I am so excited to be teaming up with one of my very favorite Etsy shops today, Basil The Cat!  I first discovered this great shop when I was on the hunt for a bubble necklace a couple of years ago.  And I discovered that Rachel not only made them by hand with a beautiful vintage feel (see this post-her’s is the turquoise version), but she also created all sorts of gorgeous one-of-a-kind vintage pieces.  Swoon worthy, really.  And let me tell you, I have a been a huge fan of hers ever since.  So when she contacted me recently to not only give away one of the gorgeous Elephant lockets that I am wearing below, but also offer a 20% discount to All Dolled Up readers for the ENTIRE month of November, how could I say no?  And so today my friends, is your lucky day!

Shootie

I love shoes-and I am talking love.  And while many might guess that my love affair with footwear started when I began my career as a Footwear Buyer and Developer for Sundance Catalog, I would actually be more inclined to say that it began when I was a little tiny girl and insisted that if I had to wear saddle shoes, then they had to be the pink and white ones and not the black and white version that my mom wanted to buy me for school.  And much like my saddle shoes of old, when I saw these Report Signature shoes in a magazine a few weeks ago, I knew I had to track them down.  And boy am I glad that I did.  Because not only are they chic and amazingly comfortable (not to mention versatile), but they are the perfect hybrid between a pump and bootie-which really couldn’t be any more perfect for the season…

I am in Montana this week for work braving the cold.  And while I always love coming back to my home state, sometimes I forget how soft I’ve become between living in Tennessee and Utah over the last few years.  Winter is definitely no joke up here in the big sky state!! Brrrrrrrr….

Hope you have a wonderful week and staying warm!  Happy hump day!

Dream Coat

We had our first snow here in the SLC this weekend.  It was a beautiful day on Saturday at almost 70 degrees, but the wind was whipping through the valley all day which usually signals an impending storm front.  So without even having to check the weather, I knew come Sunday morning, the chance of waking up to snow was pretty good.  And while I must say I have mixed feelings about it, one thing I was most definitely excited about was getting out my winter coats.  And speaking of coats, if there is one trend that every gal should jump on this season, it’s adding a colorful jacket or coat to your winter wardrobe.

Oh Deer

Even though summer has come and gone, my love for graphic tees has yet to falter.  They are so easy to style and go with such a multitude of different looks.  And while jeans are the obvious choice, I love the unexpected of mixing a tee back to a sparkly skirt, a casual jacket, and booties.  It’s the perfect fall ensemble if you are looking to change things up a bit from the norm (while still keeping it somewhat casual)…

Also, can I just mention how much I love this AE jacket?  I am kind of obsessed with the whole mixed media trend this season, and this denim hoodie is no exception.  To me, this is the epitome of the perfect fall jacket.  But I’d love to know, what do you think about the mixed media trend?

Happy Tuesday!

Beanie Baby

I love a good hat.  In fact, on most winter weekends, you can almost always find me wearing one (most likely covering up helmet hair from a day on the slopes).  Not only are they an easy (and practical) accessory to throw on with just about any outfit, but they are perfect for this time of year when the temps start dropping (or when you just don’t feel like doing your hair)…

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  My hubby had a double header bike race this weekend, so ours revolved around biking.  But lucky for me, Cyclocross is a really fun event to watch, and my husband is having a great year-so it’s always exciting.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
