Polka Dots

There was a period in time when I went a little overkill on the whole polka dot thing, so I made a conscious effort to cut back.  And in doing so, it’s been quite a while since I posted a polka dot look on the blog.  So after a nice little hiatus, I finally feel like now is the appropriate time to bring polka dots back to All Dolled Up!  Not to mention that it has been unseasonably warm here in Utah this week, and this sweater is the perfect transitional piece that feels fitting for a winter that is beginning to feel an awful lot like spring…

Another Little Piece of My Heart

When I was singing in Nashville, one of my favorite songs to perform was Janis Joplin’s version of, you guessed it, Another Little Piece of my heart.  It is one of my all-time favorite songs and she, one of my all-time favorite artists.  And I’d  like to think that perhaps it’s my love for classic music that drew me to this sweater, and not just a weakness for happy sweaters… IMG_1905 IMG_1907 IMG_1917 IMG_1911 IMG_1915 IMG_1920

Mad for Plaid

I love plaid.  Which is lucky for me, because it’s a key trend this fall season.  And while I am so excited for all of the different ways I have up my sleeve to style this beloved print, right now, I am loving it paired back to leather and chiffon.  A slightly masculine spin on a pretty fall dress, if you will (click here to see how I styled this dress last year)…

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…

Leopard Kicks

It’s no secret that I love leopard.  So I couldn’t be more excited that leopard is really in this season.  And I feel pretty strongly that one must-have-item every gal should add to her closet this Fall is a pair of leopard shoes.  So whether you pick pumps, wedges, flats, or boots, just be sure to find your perfect leopard pair to help take your style up a notch this Fall!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  It certainly felt like fall here, but it was lovely.  I am heading to my Alma mater this Thursday to celebrate Homecoming and my 10 year reunion-and I am so excited that I can hardly stand it.  I am sure it will make this week go by extra slow (of course!).

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…

Baubles and Dots

There are so many fun trends in fashion right now, that it’s hard to say just which one is my favorite. But one particular trend I am loving experimenting with is layering multiple necklaces. From chains, to sparkles, to pops of neon-pretty much anything goes. And like many of my favorite things in life, the more the merrier!
