Boom Goes The Dynamite

I love this sweatshirt.  In fact, it was the only piece I ended up buying (well, keeping) from the 3.1 Phillip Lim and Target collaboration this past Fall.  I love how playful and fun it is and I especially love that current fashion has made it perfectly acceptable to wear a good old sweatshirt back to boyfriend jeans, red lipstick, and high heels.

I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend!  If you follow me on Instagram (alldolledupblog if you don’t), then you know ours was spent enjoying the incredible Utah back country.   We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful place and so blessed to be able to enjoy it to the fullest.  Now if only the weekends would last a little longer…

Happy Monday!

Radiant Orchid

I have to admit, I usually get pretty excited every year when Pantone announces their “official” color of the year.  But last year I was so thrilled when they announced that the “it” color of 2013 was Emerald Green, that I didn’t hold out much hope for 2014-that is until they announced that their official color of the year was Radiant Orchid (insert swoon here).  Now if there is one color that could top Emerald Green in my book, this is most definitely it.  So what better way to kick off my 2014 blog posts than with an ode to Radiant Orchid, Pantone’s official color of 2014…

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season.  I have to admit, I’m a little sad to be back to the grind today.  My time away from work just seemed to go by so quickly.  But the good news is, I have a lot to look forward to in the next couple of months!

Happy Monday!  And thanks for stopping by!

P.S.  How amazingly gorgeous is Utah?  So blessed to live in this beautiful state!

I’ve Got The Blues

I love the color blue, but for some reason, it’s a color that I don’t wear very often.  In fact, I hardly have any blue in my closet.  So every once in a while, I find it necessary to remind myself that blue and gray just might be one of the prettiest (and one of my favorite) color combos ever.  And in addition to pretty blues and grays, I think a grandpa cardigan is a must have in every gal’s closet this fall.  Between you and me? I can’t stop wearing mine.  Between this cardigan and my tassel necklace, I think I have a serious problem…

Camo Pants

As I’ve mentioned before in a few posts, I am all over the camo trend right now.  And when I spotted these pants at the Gap, I knew I had to have them for the Fall season.  But apparently so did plenty of other people, because they sold out in my size almost immediately (they also sold out when they had a similar version in Spring).  So like the patient fashionista that I am, I waited.  And guess what?  I ended up finding them in my size on the clearance rack just a couple of weeks ago for a steal of a price.  Talk about a stroke of good luck.  Don’t you just love happy endings like that?

Archive Brights

Ok, ok so even though it’s been really cold and rainy here, don’t mind the background of these photos, because we don’t actually have any snow on the ground here in the SLC (well at least in the valley!). But rather, I was going through my outfit archives and realized that I never shared this little gem of an outfit with you all! And something about the combo of neon purple and rich, cobalt blue made me want to blog about it. I absolutely love mixing two bold colors together-especially these two colors.  They are the perfect pairing to brighten those sometimes dreary spring days…20130520-231232.jpg

I woke up with a heavy heart this morning thinking about the lives lost and all of those affected by the tornadoes in Oklahoma.  Life is so fleeting and so incredibly precious.  And tragedies like these are a good reminder to treasure your loved ones and appreciate each and every day to the fullest, because really, we never know what tomorrow might bring.  Sending my love, thoughts, and prayers to the Midwest.

Flower Power

Last weekend I got to spend an evening in Park City with some of my favorite girlfriends. And what better outfit to wear for a night with the girls than my favorite boyfriend jeans paired back to my current fashion crush-a pretty water colored floral blazer. I am absolutely loving the floral trend this season-especially back to torn-up, light wash denim. That mix of sassy and sweet-I swear it gets me every time…

Bandwagon

I’m officially on the bandwagon-the chevron bandwagon, that is. And while I have always loved the print for party decorations, home decor, rugs, throw pillows, napkins, and pretty much anything else I see on Pinterest, I have never been totally wild about the bold print on clothing. Until I saw this cute mini-chevron print blouse at American Eagle, that is. I love the small take on a bold favorite and that it’s the perfect complement to the black and white trend this spring…

And of course, my favorite accent color back to black and white is pink.  There is just something about that combo that I love.  And what better way to add color to an outfit than with a pair of shoes?

Happy Thursday!

April Showers

And with the 1st of April, came the rain. Thank goodness we have the beautiful blooms of May waiting for us on the other side. But in the interim, a fun umbrella just might be a good thing to add to your wardrobe. Better to be soggy and stylish than just plain soggy.

When it’s rainy out, the very last thing I want to do is throw on a fancy outfit.  So in addition to a fun umbrella, cute accessories are another simple way to brighten things up a bit.  An easy way to chase those rainy day blues?  Don’t mind if I do.

Butterfly In the Sky

I post a lot of dressy looks on this blog, but today I wanted to share a more casual look with you all. And truth be told, it’s probably a pretty accurate depiction of what I would most likely be wearing if you were to bump into me out running errands on a random weekend…

I am so enamored with the cute butterfly print on this shirt.  It is fun, kitschy, and absolutely perfect for spring.  Even if it hasn’t been so spring-like the last few days here in Utah.

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!

Come Fly With Me

I am on the road a lot for work. And because I am in stores when traveling and have to wear all black, dressing for travel tends to be a fairly easy task. But when I travel for leisure, I find dressing for flights is not quite as easy. Comfort is key, but for me, sweat pants are definitely not an option. Instead, I like to select outfits that are not only comfortable and casual, but that are also just fashionable enough to have the ability to take me straight from the airport to lunch, dinner, drinks, or wherever I might need to go when I land!

J and I spent this past weekend in North Dakota visiting his family before his parents make the move to Montana in April.  It was a bittersweet trip, but we had a fabulous time and shared lots of laughs and memories with two very special grandma’s, Justin’s mom and dad, and an amazing group of aunties, uncles, cousins, and extended family.  It was a very special weekend and I am feeling extra blessed to have married into such a wonderful family! 

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!
