Olive The Other Sequins

One of my favorite aspects about fashion (and home decor!) is repurposing things that I already own.  And this sequin JCrew dress is a great example. I picked it up on clearance this summer and loved wearing it during the warmer months.  But because December is the month of sequins (and lots of red and green!), I wanted to try styling it for colder weather.  So I layered it with my favorite Portofino shirt from Express, and a new vest (that I’m completely obsessed with, BTW).  And I have to say, I love the result.  This is an outfit that would be great for a company Christmas party, a girl’s night out, or pretty much any dressy event that the month of December serves up!

Dress: JCrew (old), DYING over this version (on sale!), similar | Blouse: Express (these shirts are the BEST! I might have A LOT of them AND they’re buy one get one 50% off!) | Vest: Shein c/o (it’s under $30 and one of my favorite things in my wardrobe right now and the quality is great!  I’m wearing a medium for reference and I’m 5’3″ and a size 4/6) | Sunnies: Karen Walker c/o Ditto (try them for FREE for one month with code: ALLDOLLEDUP) | Cuffs: Stella & Dot | Necklace: Gigglosophy (under $35 and a great gift for yourself or a friend!) | Bag: Clare Vivier (sold out), clutch version | Pumps: BCBG (LOVE these! And they aren’t really this tight-my feet were super swollen from flying!)

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

I am a huge fan of pink, but it’s the color yellow that will always be number one in my book.  So when I saw that my favorite shirt comes in a brilliant shade of yellow for Spring, it was a total no-brainer for me.  And while I dressed it down today with my favorite military vest, I am already scheming up more ways to wear this fabulous shirt!  Don’t love yellow? Don’t worry.  This blouse comes in a multitude of colors and is the perfect top to add to your closet for work OR play!

Birthday Balloons…

I have always wanted to do a blog post with balloons (thanks a lot, Pinterest), but the opportunity had just really never presented itself.  That is until yesterday, when J surprised me with flowers and balloons before we left town for a quick weekend birthday celebration. And so today, in honor of my birthday, I thought I would celebrate by accessorizing my outfit with a whole bunch of pink balloons.  Because if you can’t accessorize with balloons on your birthday, then really, when can you?

Citrus Punch

I would consider an outfit like the below to be my go-to look-a pretty button down, skinny jeans, a comfy pair of pumps, and some super fun accessories. In fact, this is the type of outfit that I constantly find myself gravitating towards-both in dressy (like this one) and casual versions. I guess I could call it my All Dolled Up uniform…

If you are looking for a perfect fitting button down that comes in a variety of colors, in a gorgeous floaty material, then the Express Portofino shirt is for you.  I am beyond obsessed with not only the fit and fabric of this lovely shirt, but also with the vast array of drool worthy colors that it’s offered-definitely something for everyone.

Tassel Ho!

I love a good tassel necklace. Maybe it’s because I’m from Montana and they remind me of a (fashionable) bolo tie, or maybe it’s just because they feel so new and different this season. Either way, a tassel necklace is an easy piece for anyone to wear and something simple (and inexpensive) everyone should add to their wardrobe this spring!

Editing these photos only served to make me acutely aware of how anxious I am for the arrival of spring and summer.  Not only am I looking forward to warmer temps, sunshine, longer days, and fewer layers, but a little color on my pale skin definitely won’t hurt either!

Happy Wednesday!
