Labor Day

This time of the year makes me feel so conflicted inside.  Part of me is so ready for pumpkin everything, blanket scarves, booties, and cozy layers.  But the other half hates to see the days get shorter, the temps get cooler, and to have to put away all of my favorite summer dresses and sandals.  So this week, I am embracing the last few days of summer and wearing all summer everything.  Like this dress.  Not only is it super cute, but seriously, how perfect is it for Labor Day weekend?

Dress: Chicwish c/o, also love this | Necklace: Baublebar | Cuff: Kendra Scott | Clutch: Clare V. | Sunnies: Prada | Heels: INC (old), love these

Did you guys know that this dress can be worn multiple ways?  It can be worn strapless, off-the-shoulder (see my #sundaynightstyle post over on Insta!), and of course, one shoulder, like I’ve styled it in this post.  How cool is that?

Hope you guys had a great weekend!

xoxo,

Abby

Cha Cha Cha

I initially saw this dress on one of my very favorite fashion bloggers and fell in LOVE.  But when I saw the price, I was definitely hesitant about taking the plunge.  So when I stumbled on an amazing lookalike for less than $25, I didn’t even hesitate.  Not only is this dress totally on trend and SO fun with the tassels, but the quality is fantastic.  So if you’ve been eyeing the designer version of this dress, but have been apprehensive about the steep price tag (like me!), then this version of the dress is definitely for you!

Casual Friday

I love a good striped tee.  Particularly when they are super soft and a little longer in the back than in the front.  And my white jeans?  Still going strong this fall season.  In fact, I love this look for Fall so much, that this type of uniform will definitely be on repeat.  I will just have to change out my heels for booties when the temps start to drop!

On a serious note, I also wanted to just take a minute and acknowledge today, September 11th.  I still remember so vividly where I was and exactly what I was doing on this day 14 years ago.  I remember watching towers fall while my roommates and I cried and clung to each other in our tiny little dorm room.  I remember frantically trying to call friends who lived in in NYC to make sure they were ok.  I remember how drastically things changed in those moments and how in the blink of an eye, things would never be the same.  But most importantly, I remember those who lost their lives, the heroes, the first responders, the children who have grown up without with fathers and mothers.  Every soul lost that day was so precious and taken from us much too soon.  So even though life marches on, today will be a day full of reflection for me, as I know it will be for many others across this great country and around the world.

Hold tight to your loved ones, and never, ever forget.

Love you guys.

White After Labor Day

I’m baaaaaack!  Been a bit of a rough week for me over here.  I got some bad spider bites while we were on a float trip this past weekend and have been having an allergic reaction to them in the form of hives all over my arms and legs!  Gross!  Didn’t figure you all would want to see that on the blog, so I’ve just been taking it easy this week.

Fortunately, I started to feel a little better last night which is why I’m finally back today.  And good thing too, because I want to talk about how much I love white pants!!  I was so hesitant to buy them at first because I knew I would get them dirty (which I pretty much do every time I wear them), but it has been so worth it.  Not only do they look great with almost every cute summer top in my closet (especially bright colors!), but I can’t wait to transition these bad boys into Fall with booties and oversized sweaters!  Who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day???

Gingham

Gingham has always been one of my very favorite prints.  So when I saw that my favorite Portofino shirt from Express came in a light blue gingham this spring, it was an obvious choice to add to my wardrobe.  And let me tell you, I have already worn this shirt a ton AND have so many more ideas of how I will continue to style it different ways all summer long. But I want to know, what you are guys thinking of the gingham trend this season?

Sheinside

I’ve been eyeing the Sheinside website for quite a while now.  So when they reached out and asked if I would be interested in trying out some of their clothes, I couldn’t help but oblige.  And while there were SO many cute things to choose from on their site, I ultimately settled on a dress that is almost identical to my favorite Free People dress (which you can see here).  At a mere price tag of $30 vs. the $148 original version, I wanted to compare the two and really get a feel for the quality of clothing on Sheinside.  And you guys, I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. While it is a little shorter than the my Free People dress, I overall like the fit better.  The arms were also a little slimmer too, which I also prefer.  And I have to say, I was also quite impressed with the quality-not only the was the fabric very nice, but the dress was also fully lined.  After this experience, I will definitely be shopping with Sheinside again.  In fact, you can see my current wish list at the bottom of the post!

Neon

We have been having the rainiest weather here in Utah, which has made it really difficult to take outfit photos.  So my apologies for being a little quiet over here on the blog.  Hopefully once we get through this week, our normal sunny weather will decide to return to us!  But today, I wanted to share one of my favorite tops with you.  And not just because I love it, but because you can score it on MAJOR sale today!  Not only is it the perfect length (a little longer than most button downs), but it has super cute grosgrain ribbon trim, and is the perfect punch of color for both spring and summer (think of how cute it would look with white!!).  Link is below!





  Neon Top:  JCrew (use code: SALENEWS for an additional 30% off-also comes in white) | Skinnies: Paige Denim | Tassel Necklace: Jeweliq, LOVE this | Rings: Suz Somersall (here and here) | Cuff: Macy’s | Sunnies: Karen Walker | Bag: Tory Burch | Heels: INC (LOVE these, really comfy)

Hope you are all having a fantastic!  Thank you SO much for stopping by!

 

 

 

 

Cardi

I’ve been really into cardigan sweaters lately.  They are so easy to slip on over a silky blouse for work, or over a t-shirt on the weekend.  I am also finding myself drawn to the slightly longer-length boyfriend fit this season.  Because let’s be honest, anything cozy or gray seems to be on heavy rotation in my closet right now!

Lemon Lime

YOU GUYS!  I am back!  My apologies for the radio silence on the blog last week!  I was traveling for work and on vacation and between our crazy adventures and some unexpected technical issues with my memory card (I lost all of the outfit posts I had planned!), I just couldn’t get any content up.  But boy did I miss you all and couldn’t be happier to be back and sharing today’s post!

If you follow me on Instagram (and if you don’t, you can follow me here), then you know I had the opportunity to do a photo shoot with the incredibly talented LC Photography a couple of weeks ago.  I had such an amazing time working with them and was so happy to finally have the perfect opportunity to shoot my beloved neon tulle skirt from The Girl That Loves.  Tulle is all the rage right now and The Girl That Loves has an assortment of incredible colors and styles that are also extremely comfortable.  So if you are looking to indulge your girly, flirty side, then be sure to check them out!  And if you are in Utah, the be sure to check out LC Photography-they are the best!IMG_4231 IMG_3782 IMG_3791 IMG_3867 IMG_4164

Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by, and happy Monday!
