Leopard and Plaid

There is something about the Fall season that makes me want to print mix.  And one of my all-time favorite combos to put together is leopard and plaid.  So if you haven’t tried mixing these two prints yet, then I challenge you to test it out this Fall.  In fact, I can tell you that this is a combo you are probably going to see me wear a lot of on the blog this season.  So consider yourself warned!

Independence Day

In honor of the holiday weekend, I wanted to share one more patriotic inspired look with you all.  And this one is a classic take on traditional red, white, and blue.  I love this look for a backyard BBQ, or for a morning of parades and brunching.  Whatever you have going on this weekend, this is a simple yet festive look that is sure to work for just about any occasion!

Dressy

Two of my favorite things?  A comfy knit dress, and this gorgeous white barn up in Park City!!!  I have been consciously trying to incorporate long sleeve casual dresses into my wardrobe this year.  Not only are they incredibly comfortable, but they are great for so many different occasions-especially when you want to be a little dressed up without being overdone.  They are a great alternative to jeans, and of course pair perfectly back to your favorite denim jacket!  Be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post to shop my favorites below…

Long Sleeved Dresses

I don’t know what it is, but I am obsessed with long sleeve dresses this Fall.  Now don’t get me wrong, I love wearing all of my sleeveless dresses with cute jackets and cardis, but when the weather is still fairly mild, I love the idea of changing things up a bit and leaving the jacket at home.  And while I was obviously drawn to this dress because of the sleeves, I also love it’s unique leopard print.  It feels refreshing to me to add a piece to my closet that isn’t a basic leopard, but rather a fun play on my favorite type of print!

Golden Hour

This past weekend, J and I had a little staycation up in Park City.  And even though it was officially the last weekend of summer, the Fall season has already crept into the mountains.  The leaves are starting to change colors and it was definitely jacket weather.  But since I’m not ready to give up dresses quite yet, I am extending their seasonality by pairing them back to denim and leather jackets.  And I’ve got to say, summer to fall transitional fashions are some favorite looks to put together!

Touchstone Crystal+Giveaway

Today I want to introduce you guys to a fabulous jewelry company called Touchstone Crystal.  Now I know the name sounds a little out there (at least that’s what I thought when I first heard about it), but this product is seriously incredible!  In fact, I first discovered it when I thought a girlfriend of mine was wearing diamond solitaire earrings, and when I asked her about them, she let me in on her little secret.  Touchstone Crystal was created by the Swarovski group, and all of the jewelry in turn is made with genuine Swarovski crystals and zirconia (Swarovski Zirconia is the finest simulated diamond in the world).  And do you know what that means?  Not only is the jewelry absolutely gorgeous, and top notch quality, but it is also affordable!  I picked up the beautiful statement ring I am wearing in the below photos and I can’t even being to convey how much I love it.  And not only that, but with most pieces under $100, I can’t wait to add a few more things to my jewelry collection.

Be sure to scroll below for your chance to enter to win one of 2 gift cards to Touchstone Crystal!!

Also, I wanted to take a quick second to wish my hubby a very happy birthday.  There is never a dull moment in our lives thanks to his adventurous spirit, and I feel incredibly fortunate to get to share my days with my very best friend. So here is to you, J, and your best year yet! I love you!

Track Pants

It took me a little while to hop on the whole track pant band wagon, but am I sure glad that I finally did!  Not only are they as comfy as sweatpants, but they look fantastic back to heels.  And who doesn’t love to look to put together while being comfortable at the same time??

Happy, happy Friday to you!  I am flying to Chicago for a baby shower this weekend.  And while I’m a little nervous about how cold it’s going to be, I couldn’t be any more excited to see some of my dearest friends from college.  Be sure to follow along on Instagram to check out my adventure and the Windy City, and of course what I’ll be wearing!!

London Calling

I love a good graphic tee back to jeans and a leather jacket. There is something super cool about it while still being totally chic at the same time. In fact, it might be one of my favorite looks ever-especially when paired with a great pair of heels…20130203-155325.jpg

I hope everyone had a wonderful Super Bowl weekend.  I was fortunate to spend mine in Sun Valley with best friends from college.  We had a fantastic time, but of course it all went by way too fast.  Sometimes I wish life had a pause button.

Happy Monday, dolls!

Holiday Dressing

I love planning outfits for the holidays.  In fact, I already know what I’m wearing on Christmas Eve (which also happens to be my absolute favorite day of the year).  But truth be told, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday to dress for because it’s the only holiday where it’s perfectly acceptable to wear your stretchiest pants and be totally casual.  And so, this year, in true Thanksgiving fashion, I opted to wear my favorite grey t-shirt, stretchiest legging jeans, and go-to wedge boots for a lovely dinner with friends.  But because I was feeling festive and wanted to dress things up just a little, I also added fun accessories and a cute (but comfy)Rachel Roy twill jacket to complete my look.  And let me tell you, a cute and stylish jacket (much like a fantastic pair of shoes) is a super easy way to dress up any outfit-a little secret weapon in your closet, if you will!

I still can’t believe another Thanksgiving has come and gone. Why is it that the things we always look forward to the most always seem to pass us by the quickest? But on the bright side, I can now officially put up my Christmas decorations, play Christmas music to my little heart’s content, and even eat Christmas cookies for breakfast if I feel so inclined (don’t judge). It really is the most wonderful time of the year, isn’t it?

Hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving!!
