Gingham

I love this little gingham top.  It’s such an easy, breezy piece to just throw on and go. And guess what?  It would be perfect to wear on the 4th of July!  It also comes in a few other colors and prints and is less than $15.  Definitely a great piece to add to your closet this summer!

Stripes

Stripes, peplum, and jackets.  Three of my very favorite things.  So when I saw this cute little number (for under $20, no less), I knew it was meant to be.  Not only is this a perfect piece for Spring, but it’s a great item to have in your closet to just grab and go.  Gotta love pieces that make getting dressed easy!

Print Mixing

I love that it’s perfectly acceptable to mix different prints together (thank you Jenna Lyons!).  I mean really, a couple of years ago, I never would have thought to wear leopard and tribal prints together. In the same outfit.  But for whatever reason, it works.  And perhaps more importantly? It’s FUN.  And in my book, fashion should always be fun, don’t you think?

Layers

One of my favorite things about dressing for Fall is layering.  I love putting multiple pieces together to achieve different looks and maximize the pieces in my wardrobe.  And because I am such a fan of the layered look, I am definitely finding myself gravitating towards this season’s mixed media pieces that give you the layered look without having to actually layer.  Not only do they help simplify getting dressed in the morning, but they are a great option to get the layered look without all the bulk!

Light and Airy

I love a good structured peplum top. I am also particularly being drawn towards all things white this season.  So this top has (obviously) been on frequent rotation in my closet as of late.  I am also finding myself gravitating towards anything nude as far as footwear is concerned.  And how could I forget light wash denim for both jackets and jeans?  I guess it’s safe to say this warmer weather has me wanting to lighten things up a bit…

Same Same

Leopard on leopard.  What do y’all think?  Yay or nay?  I think yay.  I am obviously a huge fan of print mixing, but typically gravitate towards pairing different patterns together (florals and stripes, stripes and leopard, polka dots and stripes, etc.).  And while I believe it’s perfectly acceptable to mix two of the same print together, it definitely works best if you follow a couple of rules.  The first is that the patterns are in the same or a complimentary color palette.  And the second is that the size of the two different prints are contrasting.  Pretty easy, don’t you think?

Minted

If you didn’t add anything in the shade of mint to your Spring/Summer wardrobe last year, then it should be at the top of your list this season. I know I for one, am happy to see that it’s still going strong this Spring.  It is such a beautiful, fresh hue, and looks fantastic back to so many different accent colors, skin tones, and pretty much every single hair color out there.  Mint really is the perfect complement to the warmer weather we all are either anxiously anticipating, or are already lucky enough to be enjoying…

I also just have to comment on how much I am LOVING my mirrored Ray-bans.  They are such a fun purchase and I love how you can dress them up or dress them down.  I would highly recommend them if you are looking to add a new pair of shades to your spring ensembles!

A Few of My Favorite Things

I love finding fashion inspiration on Pinterest and Instagram.  And that is precisely where I stumbled upon the jacket and peplum top that I’m wearing in this post.  Both were at the top of my shopping list this fall, and while I didn’t anticipate wearing them together, I am loving the structure and lines of the jacket back to the flirty and almost futuristic ruffle of the peplum. And while my hubs is a big fan of the jacket, peplum remains one of those styles that he just can’t wrap his head around. I guess we can add it to that list of fashions (along with fur vests and maxi dresses) that men just don’t understand…

I LOVE the day before Thanksgiving.  In fact, I love the day before just about any holiday.  What can I say?  I am an anticipation kind of girl.

   And while there is so much I am thankful for, this year I am especially grateful for each and every one of you-my readers.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for stopping by, your engagement, your words of encouragement, for the friendships we are creating, and for all of the support!   All Dolled Up would not be possible without you!

Wishing you and your families a wonderful, safe, and joyous Thanksgiving.

Pretty, Pretty Peplum

There is just something so pretty and feminine about peplum. And that is exactly why it is one of my favorite silhouettes of the season. Well that, and because it is also extremely flattering on just about any figure. Nicely tailored with just enough flare to hide any imperfections…

Let Freedom Ring!

Just wanted to take minute and wish you all a very happy and safe 4th of July! I know I am personally looking forward to parades, the rodeo, a little time spent on the water, and lots of yummy food-all in celebration of this incredible country that I am lucky to call my home. God bless America!
