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!

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!

Secret Garden

Well, despite my best intentions last week, I just could not get it together to get any content up on the blog.  I thought I would have plenty of time to snap and share outfit photos, but we were so busy boating, rafting, fishing, hitting Glacier National Park, and enjoying family and friends, that there just wasn’t a lot of downtime.  So my apologies for the lack of posts!

Fortunately, J and I did manage to snap off a few outfit shots on the last night of our trip at my mom and dad’s house-including these photos taken in my mom’s GORGEOUS garden.  My parent’s yard is stunning and I wish I could take blog photos there all the time!  In fact, it was in this very garden that I took some of my senior pictures!  Crazy to think of how long ago that was!

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

I hope you all had a WONDERFUL 4th of July weekend!  We spent our holiday in the cute little town of Red Lodge, Montana and had such a fantastic time.  My only wish is that it could have lasted just a little bit longer. But isn’t that how it usually goes???

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

Crop It Like It’s Hot

I loved the crop shirt trend the last go around and fondly remember wearing cute crops with overalls and Birks. Heck, I was even wearing crop tops with low-rise jeans performing at the bars in Nashville back in the day! I was also in my late teens/early twenties at the time-so bearing a little midriff seemed perfectly acceptable.  But now that the crop top trend is back, and finding me in my early 30’s, I’ve been a little unsure as to how to tackle this trend.  Because at my age, I’m certainly not going to be running around with my navel hanging out!  And while I’ve done some cute layering looks with crops, that doesn’t exactly work during the warmer summer months.  So for those of you finding yourselves in the same predicament as me, I have found that a super cute and age appropriate way to wear a crop top, is with a high-wasited skirt.  It still gives you the look and feel of the crop, but without baring all of the skin!  And trust me, your belly button will thank you!

Shifty

I LOVE a good shift dress.  Not only are they the ultimate in comfort, but they are a perfect piece to wear to work during the summer months.  Easy, breezy, and professional.  They are also a great transitional piece to take from day to night, or casual to dressy.  If you follow me on Instagram (and if you don’t, you can follow me here) then you know I wore this dress paired with a denim vest to a friend’s baby shower over the weekend, which gave it a slightly more casual vibe than today’s post.  Once again, another versatile piece that is great to add to any gal’s wardrobe!

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…

Tulle Cool For School

Ahhh tulle, how I love you so.  So fun, so whimsical, and the perfect fabrication to make any girl feel like a princess.  And let me tell you ladies, tulle isn’t just for ballerinas anymore.  So if you are looking for something different (and super fun!) to add to your wardrobe this spring, then a tulle skirt is the ticket.  You can wear them back to anything from a t-shirt, to a blouse, to a button down, to a jean-jacket.  Rest assured, you will be pleasantly surprised at the plethora of things you will able to style your tulle skirt with.  But perhaps more importantly, how fabulous it will make you feel…
