Minted

If you didn’t add anything in the shade of mint to your Spring/Summer wardrobe last year, then it should be at the top of your list this season. I know I for one, am happy to see that it’s still going strong this Spring.  It is such a beautiful, fresh hue, and looks fantastic back to so many different accent colors, skin tones, and pretty much every single hair color out there.  Mint really is the perfect complement to the warmer weather we all are either anxiously anticipating, or are already lucky enough to be enjoying…

Mixology

It’s no secret that I love camo.  And leopard.  And stripes.  And distressed denim.  Oh, and of course yellow.  So why not mix them all together?  Obviously!!  Mixing all of your favorite things into one outfit isn’t just for little kids anymore-it’s called fashion!!!

Pump It Up

I am definitely a high heel kind of girl.  Not a huge fan of flats, and while I do love boots, if I had my choice, let’s be honest, I’d wear a fab pair of pumps everyday.  And so it should come as no surprise that this season I am especially loving making a statement with my footwear.  Don’t you just love that shoes aren’t just shoes anymore, but rather outfit completing accessories?

I had such a fun weekend in Chicago with friends (of course it went by way too fast).  But I couldn’t be happier to be home with my sweet family.  Well that, and the fact that we are only 2 days away from heading back to Nicaragua for a little vacay.  And let me tell you, I am so excited I can hardly stand it.  You can see my pics from last year’s vacation to the darling town of San Juan Del Sur here.

Happy Monday!!!

Buffalo

I love plaid.  Like really love it.  But of all of the cute plaids I’ve seen this season, a classic buffalo check plaid just might be my favorite.  And so when I saw this scarf at Gap (for 40%!), I knew it was coming home with  me. And hats!  Oh my gosh.  I LOVE hats!  I mean really, how easy (and fun) is it to just throw on a super simple outfit and a few cute accessories to really an outfit take it up a notch!

RED Top, RED Cup

I am all about the color red this season.  From shoes, to bold red lips, to fancy, festive tops-even my holiday decor is full of pops of red.  To me, red is the most wonderful color this time of year.  And so today, I bring to you a post complete with not only a red outfit, but also my favorite drink ware for entertaining this holiday season (make sure you scroll past the outfit pics for Red Cup Living details and an ah-mazing holiday deal you don’t want to miss!)…

Looking for a unique Christmas gift this year?  Then be sure to stop by Red Cup Living to check out their great assortment of Solo Cup inspired glasses.  Thanks to my college years and nostalgia for those good old red Solo Cups, I was thrilled when Red Cup Living contacted me to review their prodcut.  Red Cup Living is is a line inspired by a husband and wife team comprised of re-usable (totally durable), BPA free, dishwasher safe, Solo Cup inspired drink ware.  Can you say amazing?  And not only are they practical, but their red color makes them perfect for the holiday season.  My personal favorites from the line (which I will most definitely be using for entertaining this holiday season) are the wine glass, and the beer mug, but there are many, many more choices on the website.  Talk about a perfect Christmas gift starting at just $6!

Be sure to visit Red Cup Living this season, and use code REDCUP15 for 15% off your entire order!!!!  I mean really, how perfect are these festive red cups for your holiday table???

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.

Neutrals

I love fall fashion.  And by love, I mean really love.  There is just something so appealing to me about layering on sweaters, cute jackets, and lots of jewelry.  And neutral colors?  Forget about it.  As much as I am a tried-and-true color girl, this time of year, army green and anything in a neutral color palette is what you’ll find me reaching for. Ok, well maybe with a little pop of color…

Vegas Recap

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that J and I were in Las Vegas last week for a long weekend and a bike race.  We had a fantastic time and spent our days riding our road bikes through the Red Rock Canyon, attending Interbike, doing a little shopping, and (mostly) lounging by the pool.  It was a fun and relaxing few days.  But I have to say, my favorite part was the excuse to get extra dressed up for dinner in the evenings.  And any excuse to throw on a little extra sparkle is a good enough excuse for me…

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!
 
 

Stud Muffin

I love studs. Especially the sort you find in fashion. 🙂 And I have a feeling that this fall is not going to disappoint. Studs are popping up everywhere from shoes, to sweaters, to bags, to jewelry-anything is acceptable. Including mixing different types of studs together…
