Golden Hour

This past weekend, J and I had a little staycation up in Park City.  And even though it was officially the last weekend of summer, the Fall season has already crept into the mountains.  The leaves are starting to change colors and it was definitely jacket weather.  But since I’m not ready to give up dresses quite yet, I am extending their seasonality by pairing them back to denim and leather jackets.  And I’ve got to say, summer to fall transitional fashions are some favorite looks to put together!

Short Story

I used to think the combo of shorts and heels together was kind of silly.  But I have to admit, I am a total convert and wearing heels and shorts together is a summer staple for me. When the weather heats up, I am all about fashion short cuts, and adding heels to any outfit (specifically shorts), is a perfect and easy way to glam up a super casual look…

Versatility

One of my favorite things to do when looking in my closet is to pick a piece that I have already worn and challenge myself to completely re-style it giving it a totally different vibe and look-almost making it feel brand new again. So often times when I’m shopping, I try to select pieces that I know will be quite versatile and that I will be able to get a lot of use from. And when I saw this simple navy and white striped maxi at Macy’s back at the beginning of July, I knew it had potential to be worn a plethora of different ways, and no doubt has become one of the pieces in my closet that I have gotten the most use out of this summer. You can see how I styled it for a night of music at Sundance Resort in this post. And below, a totally different look for a morning at the farmer’s market-slightly dressed down with a fedora and my tried-and-true denim vest.

So I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend.  Minus a little rain, a broken air conditioner, and an adventurous bike ride in the rain and hail (which was actually pretty exciting!), J and I had a fantastic holiday weekend.  We grilled out, finished our deck, played lots of games (glad to know I can still beat him at tennis, if nothing else!), hit the farmer’s market, shopped, watched movies, and I even snuck in some reading and a little more shopping on my own.  And I have to say that with the schedule I have been keeping as of late, it was pretty incredible to just slow down and relax for a couple of days.  And the only thing better than a three day weekend?  A two day work week!  I am off to Detroit on Thursday morning to celebrate my Grandma’s 90th birhtday.  I can’t wait!!
