White Washed

Happy Monday, friends!  Hope you all had a great weekend!  Ours was filled with home renovation projects, friends, and lots and lots of sunshine and biking.  BUT despite the fantastic weather, there was definitely still a chill in the air.  And this time of year, when temps are still in that in-between phase, I find that a denim jacket is the perfect weight to layer on over your outfit to keep you warm and stylish.  And I am loving this pale blue, white washed version from Nordstrom.  It’s a nice change-up from tried and true blue and gives me different options for styling than my go-to JCrew denim jacket.  Plus, something about the pale color just feels extra fresh for Spring…

TGIF

I can’t even begin to tell you guys how happy I am that it is Friday!  Why does the first full week of the year always seem to go by so slowly?  Just another one of life’s many mysteries, I guess!  Anyway, today I wanted to share a super casual outfit with you all that is one of my go-to looks.  As much as I love color, I am obsessed with gray and love it paired with white-especially when you throw in a pop of cognac.  I don’t know if it’s the dreariness of January or the post holiday blues, but this is a combo I’ve been reaching for all week. And don’t forget to scroll to the bottom of the post to see if you won the $50 Bohme Boutique giveaway!

Salt Lake Magazine Feature

I was beyond thrilled when the sweet Fashion Editor from Salt Lake Magazine contacted me and asked if I would sit down with her for an interview about my blog and career in the fashion industry for their September/October issue.  And as you can imagine, of course I said yes!  What an honor to be able to talk about All Dolled Up and work with some of the amazing (and talented!) people behind the glossy publication!

And so today, I wanted to share with you the looks I styled for the photo shoot.  I had so much fun coming up with Fall inspired outfits for this project (even though it was a sweltering 100 degrees the day we shot!), and it was the perfect excuse to finally buy the tulle skirt from Space 46 Boutique that I had been eyeing for months.  And let me tell you, every girl should own a tulle skirt!

Raven + Lily

I am pretty sure that yesterday was the first Monday that I haven’t shared a blog post since I launched All Dolled Up.  And if you follow me on Instagram (and if you don’t, you should: alldolledupblog), then you know I have been in Boulder cheering on my hubby at Cyclorcross Nationals.  And while we had a really fun weekend, horrible roads plus a sick husband on the drive home meant having to unexpectedly stay the night in a hotel in the middle-of-nowhere Wyoming.  So my apologies for missing yesterday!

But now that I am back, I wanted to share with you an amazing company called Raven + Lily.   I love to shop fair trade and have shared quite a few fair trade finds and companies on the blog in the past, and so I thought it was important to share the ah-mazingness of Raven + Lily with all of you.  Raven + Lily is a company founded by two women who wanted to use fashion and ethical design as a “a platform to utilize those passions to alleviate poverty among women”.  The necklace I am wearing in today’s post is a favorite of mine from their Ethiopian Collection and was created by HIV positive women from handmade beads made of melted bullet casings from previous war conflicts.  Talk about a powerful statement necklace.  You can read more about Raven + Lily here, and you can shop their incredibly gorgeous collection here, including designs from Ethiopia, Cambodia, and India.  When we are so blessed to live in this great country, and live the lives that we do, I think it’s incredibly important to give back when we can and support companies that empower women around the globe…
