Polka Dot

I have been on the hunt for the perfect black faux fur vest for months. and finally found this cute one at Nordstrom.  And let me tell you, this vest is my new favorite thing in my closet.  in fact, I have already worn it twice in the past week!  Not only is it super soft and flattering, and but it’s a great price point too!  So if you have been wanting to add a black faux fur vest to your closet this year, then look no further!

Working Girl

Happy Friday, sweet friends!  I hope you have all had a great week.  I was on the road for work, so despite my best intentions to get some blog posts up and running, my nights were spent getting caught up and prepped for meetings.  But today, I’m back!  And I am excited to share with you a typical outfit that I would wear to work.  Because I am on the road so much for my job (you can read about what I do here), on planes, in cars, and in and out of Executive meetings, I am always looking for work appropriate (and fashionable) outfits that are also super comfy and practical.  The Express Portofino shirt has become a staple in my closet (it comes in TONS of cute colors and prints), and I love pairing it back to simple black skinnies, basic jewelry, and a fun pump or heel for a little pop of color. I have found this to be a great basic formula for an easy wear-to-work outfit that works for just about any occaision.  Not to mention that this combo also looks fantastic with a blazer for a little more dressed up look!

Connect The Dots

The combination of gray and yellow is one of my all-time favorites.  And when you add polka dots, a pop of leopard, and distressed denim into the mix, in my book, it’s a pretty perfect ensemble(not to mention ideal for the weekend!)…

Camo

Happy Thursday, everyone!  I am on the road again this week for work, and enjoying the opportunity to spend some time in my home state of Montana.  But truth be told, I am ready to be home and sleep in my own bed.

But in the meantime, today I wanted to share with you one of my favorite combinations-camo and hot pink.  And while I wouldn’t initially have thought to put this outfit together, I happened to try on this sweater while I was wearing these pants running errands a couple of weekends ago and loved the way they looked together.  And once I added pink accessories, I was sold!  A perfect and fun go-to outfit for the transitional season between winter and spring!

Shades Of Gray

It’s been so gray the past couple of days, the weather must have seeped into my subconscious and impacted my wardrobe-a gray ensemble for an equally gray day.  But of course, I couldn’t let the dreariness completely overtake my outfit, and decided to brighten things up a little by adding a pair of yellow pumps.  Yellow and gray, after all, is one of my favorite color combinations.  Ever.

Also, while I don’t normally get too personal on the blog, I felt it pressing on my heart to share this story with all of you.  Sarah grew up down the street from me and at 32 years old is battling a rare and aggressive form of cancer.  And not only does she have a difficult fight ahead of her, but she has two young children and a husband to think about.  Please keep she and her family in your prayers, and if you feel so inclined to donate, there are links in the article (it’s super easy).  And feel free to share her story and spread the word if you feel so inclined.

Reading Sarah’s story reminds of how important it is to be thankful for my health.  It is something so easy to take for granted, but yet it is so incredibly precious.  A good  and humbling reminder…

Hope you are all having a great week!  Thank you so much for stopping by!

 

 

 

 

Polka Dots

There was a period in time when I went a little overkill on the whole polka dot thing, so I made a conscious effort to cut back.  And in doing so, it’s been quite a while since I posted a polka dot look on the blog.  So after a nice little hiatus, I finally feel like now is the appropriate time to bring polka dots back to All Dolled Up!  Not to mention that it has been unseasonably warm here in Utah this week, and this sweater is the perfect transitional piece that feels fitting for a winter that is beginning to feel an awful lot like spring…

I am on the road again for work this week.  And between vacation and work trips, will be on the road every week for the next 5 weeks!  I guess I better get really comfortable living out a suitcase until March! Sheesh!!!

Happy hump day!

So Long, 2013…

I always get a little reflective and perhaps even pensive when each year ends and a new one begins.  It is a time of excitement and the promise of a new beginning and fresh start, but the turning of that page always makes me a little sad too.  The older I get, the faster and faster time seems to go.  Cliche, I know, but true none-the-less.

Looking back at 2013, this blog has really been such a highlight of my year.  And so, I wanted to take today’s post to THANK ALL OF YOU for being with me every step of the way.  Your support, your engagement, your ideas, your encouragement, your love-it has all meant the world to me. And I sincerely hope you will continue along this journey with me into 2014  I could not do what I do every day without each and every single one of you. So truly, from the bottom of my hear, THANK YOU.

And what better way to close out 2013 than with a look back at some of my (and yours too!) favorite looks from this year…

Holiday Dressing

I LOVE polka dots.  And I especially love polka dots paired with plaid.  So lucky me that both happen to be very on trend this holiday season!  And not only are they both on trend, but in my opinion, they are the perfect combo to put together for all of those upcoming holiday parties quickly filling up the calendar!

Strappy

One of my very favorite looks of the moment is barely there, feminine pumps back to destroyed boyfriend jeans. I swear, something about those sweet and sassy combos get me every time (especially when you throw polka dots into the mix)…
