Plaid About You

One of my favorite things about Fall fashion?  PLAID!  And now that the temps are finally starting to cool off a little in the SLC, I am happy to start rocking all of my favorite button downs again.  This shirt was a staple in my closet last Fall, and it’s already well on its way to being a staple piece again this season.  Not only does it bode well with denim, but it also looks great dressed up with a pop of leopard!

Another Little Piece of My Heart

When I was singing in Nashville, one of my favorite songs to perform was Janis Joplin’s version of, you guessed it, Another Little Piece of my heart.  It is one of my all-time favorite songs and she, one of my all-time favorite artists.  And I’d  like to think that perhaps it’s my love for classic music that drew me to this sweater, and not just a weakness for happy sweaters… IMG_1905 IMG_1907 IMG_1917 IMG_1911 IMG_1915 IMG_1920

Just A Sliver

One look that was all over NYFW that I am feeling a little on the fence about? Midriff baring tops. Now when I was in my early 20’s, I most definitely would have embraced this trend. But now that I am a littler older, it’s daring a look that pushes me out of my fashion comfort zone. And of course, forces me to acknowledge that certain trends are perhaps sometimes better suited for younger demographics. And while you won’t see me baring my full midriff anytime soon, I must admit I love the idea of taking a classic outfit, adding some pretty jewels and toughed-up shoes, and showing just a hint of skin. Now that I think I can handle…

When my husband was snapping these photos, he didn’t realize at first that I was showing a sliver of my midriff.  But when he did, he couldn’t help but laugh at me (thanks a lot!!!).  So hopefully you are not having the same reaction!  But I have to ask, what do you think of the midriff trend?

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!
