Neutrals

Olive and nude is always a favorite color combo of mine.  And this olive tunic is so soft and cozy (and under $40!), it’s pretty much my favorite purchase of the Fall season.  I’m also loving this faux suede vest.  It is just one of those pieces that I will be able to get a ton of wear out of. And you know I always love (and recommend) pieces that are a good investment!

P.S.  I am going to take a little mini-break from my social media/blog for the next couple of days.  I am participating in a fast with my church, Antioch SLC, and have opted to give up social media and tv for the next couple of days to spend some time focusing on my walk with God.  But I will be back to my regular posting on Wednesday evening, so be sure to check back then!!!

Midi

I’m not very tall, at only 5’3″, so I typically shy away from midi-length dresses and skirts since I sometimes think they tend to swallow me up.  But that’s not to say I don’t keep trying to find styles in this length that work for me.  So I was pleasantly surprised when I found a couple of midi-length dresses at the Gap recently that are not only super soft and comfy, but are also really flattering (you can see the other midi-dress here).  Plus this dress will look great with a leather jacket during the Fall season.  DSC_2717 DSC_2719 DSC_2783 DSC_2737 DSC_2732 DSC_2761 DSC_2729 DSC_2782

Transitioning

I’m having a hard time believing that it’s already August.  And I can’t help but find myself starting to think about Fall, and purchasing transitional and Fall specific pieces.

So in today’s post, I wanted to share with you this super cute dress and how I’m wearing it now, and how I’m going to wear it when the temperatures start dropping.  Like I’ve said a lot on this blog, I love re-styling items and investing in pieces that will get a lot of use in my wardrobe.

P.S. How cute is my sweet Chloe girl?  She normally hates having her picture taken, but insisted on making a cameo in this post! 🙂

 

 

Casual

I wear my army green surplus jackets all the time.  So when I happened to stumble on my favorite silhouette in a pale pink color, I was 100% sold.  I love putting a new spin on an old classic, because not only is it comfortable, but it still feels fresh and new at the same time.

Leather and Lace

I love this time of year when I can transition my summer dresses into the Fall season.  And even more than that, I love that I don’t have to put my white items away after Labor Day!  Because as perfect as this white lace dress was to wear during the summer months, I actually prefer it dressed up with Fall ready accessories.  And if you didn’t buy this FANTASTIC faux leather jacket last year (it is my absolute FAVORITE), it’s not too late, because Nordstrom brought it back again this season.  It really is just that good (and it’s under $100)!

Flower Power

I am fairly short, at just 5’3″, but I have long legs and a short torso, so shopping in the petites department doesn’t typically work for me.  I normally just buy regular sizing, and if I ever run into a pant inseam that is a little too long, I just take them to my (amazing!) tailor here in the SLC.  So when I spotted this cute peplum jacket a couple of months ago at Macy’s, and the XS was too big for me, I was initially at a loss.  But when I noticed it also came in petite, I decided to give it shot.  And guess what?  It worked perfectly!  It was a great reminder for me that if I ever have trouble with regular sizing, that petites can be a great alternative.  So if you are on the short side like me, don’t forget about the petite department!
