Surplus Jacket

A favorite item in my wardrobe every Fall, is a classic army surplus jacket.  Not only is it a practical piece, but it’s also perfect for layering with just about any outfit you put together.  So if you don’t own one yet, this is the season to take the plunge.  And I’ve linked a few of my favorites below to make your shopping that much easier.

Hope you guys are having a great week!  If you follow me on Snapchat (alldolledupblog), then you know I came up to Montana for the wedding of a close family friend, and to visit my family for the past couple of days.  And I have to say, it’s FREEZING here!  I definitely did not pack the right things.  But I’m always so thankful to be home with family (no matter the weather), especially my sweet niece!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

xoxo,

Abby

Party Pants

Confession time: when I was in high school, my girlfriends and I loved The Spice Girls (like really loved them!)!  So when they came out with their movie, we not only dressed up to go and see it, but we also each had our own Spice Girl name.  And mine was, wait for it, Sparkle Spice!  If you are reading this post and you know me, then this probably comes as no surprise to you.  But for those of you who don’t know me personally, then it should be noted that I LOVE sparkles-glitter, sequins, you name it, if it blings I am in!  So while I feel like people normally bust out their sequins during the holidays or for special occasions, when styled the correct way, I think sequins can be worn any time.  And what better way to dress down a pair of sequin pants than with a favorite tee and a surplus jacket (remember how versatile I said they were in my Wardrobe Staples post??)…

My BF

I love boyfriend jeans.  They are so comfy, and casual, but also look fantastic dressed up back to heels and a cute top.  In fact, I think it’s one of the spring trends that everyone should invest in.  But be forewarned, it might take some trying on to find the perfect pair that work for your body type.  In fact, it took me quite a while to find a pair that were both flattering and comfy-but they were definitely well worth the effort!

Besides boyfriend jeans, I also can’t seem to get enough these nude pumps.  They are a fantastic staple piece for any closet and go with just about anything.  So get ready, because you will probably be seeing them on the blog a lot.

Hope you are all having a good week!

Up On The Roof

When the weather cools down, one of the first things I typically find myself reaching for is anything leopard.  And while a lot of times the leopard pieces I wear tend to be shoes and accessories, it’s awfully hard to beat a good leopard top.  Especially when paired back to a fun moto jacket and a favorite pair of skinnies…

Rain, Rain, Go Away

I didn’t intend to use the below outfit for a post, but due to rainy weather, a late night at work, a bike race (the hubs), and other complications, well, here it is. But, with that said, I’ve got to say, I LOVE it. Funny how sometimes the best outfits are the ones that happen on accident, or when a wrench is thrown in your plans. I guess it keeps things interesting. And besides, it’s pretty hard to go wrong when wellies are involved, don’t you think?

I hope you are all having a great week and that you weather is a little warmer and drier than ours.  Fall has certainly descended upon the Wasatch front with a vengeance this week.  And while I love Fall, I’ve got to admit, I’m not quite ready for it to be so dreary just yet!  But on the bright side, I guess it’s time to break out the boots!

Thanks for stopping by!

About Face

I love, love, love the military trend. Most likely because I have an obsession with cute jackets. And what’s cuter than a bomber? Or a surplus jacket? They are the perfect topper to just about any outfit. And while I normally tend to gravitate towards shades of army green, I couldn’t help but fall in love with this navy number when I spotted it at Macy’s a couple of months back. And even though the temps are still pretty warm, I can already tell that this is going to be a fantastic staple in my fall wardrobe…
