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!

Flower Power

I don’t normally find myself gravitating towards floral prints.  But when I saw this top at JCrew (it’s on clearance right now, by the way), I think I fell in love a little. It’s such an easy, breezy piece for summer and a perfect match back to shorts.  But I’m also envisioning styling it back to denim and taking it into the early fall season layered with a leather or jean jacket.  And while I’m certainly not ready for the warmer months to end, it’s definitely time to start strategizing how to take your summer wardrobe into fall!

Can you believe we are already starting to talk about how to transition our summer wardrobes into Fall?  I sure wish I could slow down time a bit-or even better yet, extend summer for a couple of months!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Mustard

In my book, navy and mustard is a pretty tried and true color combination-no matter the season, no matter the trend.  And I am loving the playful look of pairing a more formal top and jacket with ripped up, light wash jeans, and nude pumps.  It’s unexpected, yet somehow still classic…

My family was reminded this weekend of just how precious life is.  Everything can change in an instant, so be sure to tell the ones you love that you love them, and cherish every moment you have with your family and friends.

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

Navy+Mustard=LOVE

Navy is what we call one of the new neutrals. Like black, it goes with everything from brights, to neons, to jewel tones, to other like neutrals. It is a great staple to have in your wardrobe and because of its ability to be mixed with many different colors lends itself to creating countless different looks. But one color in particular that navy works especially well with, and in fact, one of my favorite color combinations of all time, is the pairing of navy and mustard.

No matter the season, no matter the trend, navy and mustard always work seamlessly together. Summer or fall, winter or spring, this is a color combination that always works, is easy to create, AND looks great on everyone…

And in keeping with the theme of thinking summer while preparing for fall, mustard and navy is another prime example of something you can wear now, and wear later. In fact, my very favorite way to wear mustard and navy is with a dark pair of skinny jeans and tall pair of cognac boots-but I’m obviously not quite ready for that yet!

Hope you are all having a fabulous week!!
