Romper Time

When I stumbled on a romper version of my favorite shirt ever, I knew that I had to have it.  But because I have long legs, and a short torso (I’m still only 5’3″), I tend to struggle with finding rompers that fit my body type.  So when I put it on and it fit perfectly (and felt like pajamas!) it was a definite no-brainer.  And it really is a perfect summer addition to my wardrobe that is different than anything else I own, all the while being as familiar as my favorite shirt.  And an added bonus?  It’s the perfect thing to wear for the 4th of July paired back to red heels and a bold red lip!

Sheinside

I’ve been eyeing the Sheinside website for quite a while now.  So when they reached out and asked if I would be interested in trying out some of their clothes, I couldn’t help but oblige.  And while there were SO many cute things to choose from on their site, I ultimately settled on a dress that is almost identical to my favorite Free People dress (which you can see here).  At a mere price tag of $30 vs. the $148 original version, I wanted to compare the two and really get a feel for the quality of clothing on Sheinside.  And you guys, I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. While it is a little shorter than the my Free People dress, I overall like the fit better.  The arms were also a little slimmer too, which I also prefer.  And I have to say, I was also quite impressed with the quality-not only the was the fabric very nice, but the dress was also fully lined.  After this experience, I will definitely be shopping with Sheinside again.  In fact, you can see my current wish list at the bottom of the post!

Rehearsal Dinner

If you follow me on Insta (and if you don’t, you should!), then you know I was in Austin, Texas last week celebrating the wedding of one of my best college friends.  It was an absolutely fabulous weekend and I could not be happier for my sweet friend and her new hubby.  And despite my best intentions to take blog photos of what I wore to all of the festivities, I was having too much fun to pause and break out the DSLR.

So even though I’m back home in the SLC, I wanted to recreate for y’all what I wore to the rehearsal dinner.  I haven’t been to many weddings in the winter, and it made me realize that they can be a little tricky to dress for.  Even though Austin is fairly mild, I wasn’t sure it would be warm enough for a sleeveless dress-and I was right.  So instead, I opted to pair one of my favorite skirts from this past summer, with one of my favorite tops from the holiday season.  And I have to say that I really love the way it turned out.  Not only is navy one of my favorite colors for a formal event, but mixing it back to gold and leopard is one of my very favorite combinations of all time-a total no-brainer for such a special event!

I hope you guys are having a great week.  I don’t know about you, but I couldn’t be happier that the end is in sight.  I’m definitely ready for the weekend already!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

 

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…

Up On The Roof

I love anything that sparkles.  Especially if it adds an element of fun to an otherwise classic piece.  So when I saw this jacket at Express while I was in SF last wee, I knew it was a perfect addition to my closet.  I wear denim jackets all the time (especially this time of year), and I love that I now have a bit of a dressier option in my closet.  I can tell this jacket is going to be on heavy repeat in my closet this year!

Plaid About You

One of my favorite things about Fall fashion?  PLAID!  And now that the temps are finally starting to cool off a little in the SLC, I am happy to start rocking all of my favorite button downs again.  This shirt was a staple in my closet last Fall, and it’s already well on its way to being a staple piece again this season.  Not only does it bode well with denim, but it also looks great dressed up with a pop of leopard!

Army Green

I’ve got a thing for army green-no matter the season.  But every year when Fall arrives, it seems to be on with a vengeance in my wardrobe.  Especially if I can wear it with a little leopard. And while I would normally gravitate towards styling this outfit with denim, I wanted to give one of my favorite summer skirts one final hurrah for the season.  And even though the airy gauze and tulle material of this skirt with it’s delicate floral embroidery lends itself incredibly well to warmer weather, I am pleasantly surprised how a little army green and a pop of leopard make it feel perfectly acceptable for the fall season.  And you should see it with a leather jacket!!  Maybe I won’t be putting this one away just yet…

Casual

J and I are officially on vacation this week.  Hooray!  And because we are road tripping from Utah to Montana, and will be spending our time on the water, in Glacier National Park, biking, and hanging with family and friends, my attire for the week is going to be pretty casual.  In fact, most days you will probably find me in something pretty similar to today’s outfit: a comfy worn-in tee, destroyed denim shorts, casual wedges, minimal makeup and jewelry, and less than styled hair.  And so today, I thought I’d show you a glimpse of the “everyday” me and hopefully provide some inspiration for what to wear in your real, everyday summer casual life!

Happy Monday!

Rawr!

I love leopard.  And while I tend to gravitate towards wearing it more often during the cooler months-it is perfectly acceptable during the summer time too.  Especially when paired back to a bright lip and fun accessories.  So if your leopard prints are hanging out in the back of your closet this summer, maybe it’s time to pull them out, dust them off, and give them some summer love!

Geometry

I was never a huge fan of geometry, but I do love a great geometric print!  And this dress is no exception.  Not only is it fun and unique, but it’s also a fantastic piece to wear for work or play.  And if you are looking to make the most of your wardrobe, then a versatile dress (or two!) is key!
