Holiday Ready

One of my favorite things about the Christmas season is dressing up for Holiday parties.  And sequins of course.  Lots and lots of sequins!  So when I saw this darling silver matte sequin swing dress at Fira (one of my favorite online boutiques), I knew it would be perfect for the holiday season!

For today’s post,  I’m styling it with a gorgeous blush jacket (that is UNDER $40, BTW), and my favorite floral crown, by the talented Miss Stevi Marie.  But I already have a laundry list of other ways I plan to wear this dress over the coming weeks.  In fact, I’m thinking of wearing it over a Christmas plaid button down to a party this coming weekend.  And how cute would it look with a black leather jacket?  The possibilities are endless with this one, laides!  PLUS it’s under $80!  As always, details are at the bottom of the post…

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?

Perfect Harmony

I am loving the sneak peeks I am getting through social media from all of the happenings in NYC for Fashion Week.  And I have to say that one trend I am happy to see will be continuing into the Spring 2014 season is black and white.  In my opinion, no other color combo creates such perfect harmony while being so chic and effortless at the same time.  Plus it creates the ideal canvas to add a pop of color, or a pretty metallic.

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend!  Ours was packed with fun events-so of course it went by way too fast.  But fortunately, we’ve got a lot of fun things on the horizon to look forward to, including a mini Vegas vacay and a trip back to Nashville for my 10 year Vanderbilt reunion.  And believe me, I’m already planning my outfits for both trips and can’t wait to share them with all of you!

White Out

I love wearing white in the summer time. It looks so crisp and fresh and is the perfect complement to a sun-kissed glow. And while it seems obvious to gravitate towards white pants, shorts, and dresses, I think a white skirt is the perfect addition to any wardrobe. It’s a versatile piece that can easily be dressed up (with a silky blouse) or down(with a fun graphic tee) and transitions perfectly from day to night (think blazer for the daylight hours). Plus, it’s the perfect canvas for accessorizing with a little sparkle and a splash of color…

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.

Back At It

Well hello there, my lovely readers! After a brief little blogging hiatus, I am back! And can I just say that last week was an absolutely crazy (and wonderful) one for me? Between a work trip to San Francisco for our Vendor Summit, a birthday celebration, and a nice long weekend spent in my favorite city by the bay (packed full of my favorite activities), I think my head is still spinning!! So since I’m slowly, but surely, getting back into the swing of things, I thought today was the perfect opportunity to keep it short and sweet and share with you one of my favorite color combinations ever-pink and navy.

Can you believe that I stumbled upon these darling wedges at JCP of all places?  I had actually seen them in a magazine and wanted to check them out in person since I was a little unsure about buying a pair of shoes from Penny’s.  And while I have to say that I wasn’t expecting much, I was pleasantly surprised by just how cute they are in person, the quality, and the amazing price (under $40!!).  They are definitely going to be a staple in my wardrobe this summer.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

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!
