Favorites

Not all outfits are created equal.  There are always some that I love more than others, and this is definitely one of those.  Perhaps it’s because this dress reminds me of something that I wore when I auditioned for collegiate music programs back in the day, or perhaps it’s because it incorporates so many of my favorite things (surplus vest, yellow pumps, Panama hat, dress with pockets, etc.) into one look.  Whatever the reason, this is just one of those outfits that really feels like “me”, and one I can’t wait to wear again!

Transition

You guys!  Can you believe it’s September already?  Holy cow!  Where the heck did summer go?  And while there is part of me that always hates to leave the summer months behind, I certainly do love Fall.  Especially Fall fashion!  And if you know me in real life, or have followed my blog for very long, then you know my love for military vests during the Fall season.  And this year they are back again and bigger than ever!  So if you didn’t snag one last year, you can shop my picks below  (all under $100!)!  A vest is DEFINITELY something versatile that every gal should have in her closet this season!

If you follow me on Instagram (and if you don’t, you should follow me @alldolledupblog), then you might have seen my post about these gorgeous Prada sunnies.  I LOVE designer sunglasses, but hate the expensive price tag.  So when I discovered Ditto, I knew it was perfect for me.  You can rent a pair of DESIGNER sunglasses (think Prada, Karen Walker, Ray-Ban, Illesteva, etc.) for just $19/month (they even have prescription!)! You also get free shipping and can change out your sunnies as often as you want.  How amazing is that???  And even better???  Try it for one month FREE by using code: ALLDOLLEDUP at check out!  ENJOY!

 

White After Labor Day

I’m baaaaaack!  Been a bit of a rough week for me over here.  I got some bad spider bites while we were on a float trip this past weekend and have been having an allergic reaction to them in the form of hives all over my arms and legs!  Gross!  Didn’t figure you all would want to see that on the blog, so I’ve just been taking it easy this week.

Fortunately, I started to feel a little better last night which is why I’m finally back today.  And good thing too, because I want to talk about how much I love white pants!!  I was so hesitant to buy them at first because I knew I would get them dirty (which I pretty much do every time I wear them), but it has been so worth it.  Not only do they look great with almost every cute summer top in my closet (especially bright colors!), but I can’t wait to transition these bad boys into Fall with booties and oversized sweaters!  Who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day???

Sunshine

I am a huge fan of pink, but it’s the color yellow that will always be number one in my book.  So when I saw that my favorite shirt comes in a brilliant shade of yellow for Spring, it was a total no-brainer for me.  And while I dressed it down today with my favorite military vest, I am already scheming up more ways to wear this fabulous shirt!  Don’t love yellow? Don’t worry.  This blouse comes in a multitude of colors and is the perfect top to add to your closet for work OR play!

Put A Vest On It

I am never, ever ready for summer to end, but I am always ready for fall fashion!  And even though the temps are still relatively warm, fall is definitely starting to creep into the air here in Utah and I can feel myself starting to gravitate towards darker colors, neutrals, denim, leopard, light jackets, and vests (of course)!  All of which are super easy key items to start to transition those summer outfits into fall! So if you are ready to get your fall wardrobe going but aren’t quite sure how, try pairing a vest back to your favorite tank and denim…

Gone Fishin’

The thought didn’t cross my mind when I purchased this vest a couple of months ago, but when I was editing these photos, it dawned on me that it looks an awfully lot like a fishing vest.  Which in all honesty, makes me like it even that much more-I am a Montana girl after all!  And while I am obviously loving the look of vests this season, one thing I am loving even more is the combination of a bold pink back to a neutral army green and leopard.  It’s the perfect combination of casual yet refined…

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!
