The “It” Jacket

I don’t know about you guys, but every once in a while I stumble upon a piece that I want to own in every color possible.  And this jacket is one of those pieces. I have owned it in the army green color for the past 2 years and I have worn it so much (and received more compliments on it than I can count!), that it has become a tried and true favorite in my wardrobe.  So when I found it came it came in a washed black color, I knew it would be a good investment.  Plus, it’s under $55.  So if you are looking for the perfect jacket (with a little edge) that won’t break the bank, trust me.  This is the one.

Camo

I’ve always loved the camo trend-and this year is no different.  And if you don’t already own one of these vests from JCrew (JCrew Factory also has them for a killer deal), then you need one in your life!  They are a perfect layering piece and add a little something extra to any outfit.  I’ve linked a bunch of my favorites below!

Shift Jacket

You guys know I love a good shift dress.  But did you know I’m also a fan of a great shift jacket?  Not only are they chic and stylish, but they are perfect for the office to take any simple dress you have in your closet up a notch.  And if you are looking for a great staple dress for your wardrobe, this one is perfect!  Not only is it affordable and super flattering, but it comes in a ton of great colors!  In fact, it’s one of the pieces that gets the most wear in my closet-no matter the season!

Buffalo Plaid (and your guide to Black Friday sales happening NOW!)

It’s no secret that I love a great plaid shirt.  In fact, I have to limit how many plaid shirts I wear in a week!!  They are such an easy go-to in my closet this time of year, it’s hard not to gravitate towards them!  So on the eve of Thanksgiving, I thought it was fitting that my 3rd and final outfit idea for you turkey day festivities was a plaid shirt.  After all, a bright red buffalo check shirt is the perfect festive look to wear during the holidays-especially when paired back to a pair of favorite leggings, a cozy fur vest, and some killer pumps or boots!

Back To Basics

Sometimes it’s hard to beat a basic tee back to boyfriend jeans. In fact, it’s one of my favorite go-to looks.  It’s also a super easy outfit to take from day to night- just add a fab pair of heels and some statement jewelry, and you’re off!  Easy as one, two, three!

Muah!

MashUp

Sometimes one of my favorite things about fashion is paring things together that don’t necessarily go together.  And the mashup of this skirt and top is a prime example. But I have to say, I am loving the unexpected contrast of neon back to classic black and white.  And can we talk about this necklace from Ily Couture for minute?  Talk about swoon-worthy!  It just might be my favorite accessory of the summer!

Happy Spring!

In honor of the first day of Spring yesterday, it seemed fitting to break out my favorite floral wedges and a little hot pink.  And while the weather here was so perfect and exactly as the first day of spring should be, I can’t help but find myself wishing for summer.  Is that crazy?  Or is there anyone else out there that feels the same way?

Panama

I love a good hat.  And while I have been really into fedora’s the last couple of years, I think that this year, the Panama hat might just be my new favorite.  But since I am a firm believer that a gal can never have too many hats in her wardrobe, there will be plenty of room for both in mine this season. Not only are hats an ideal statement piece, but they are the perfect secret weapon for combating those less than stellar hair days…

I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend.  The weather here has been so amazing (it was 67 on Sunday!!) that I officially have spring fever.  And even though I hope to sneak in a few more days on the slopes, I say bring on the warm weather!

Happy Monday!

Pleather

I have been on the hunt for a pair of pleather pants for a while now.  And wow, was a good pair hard to find!  My only requirement was that just the front of the pant was pleather (I didn’t want to end up like Ross in his full leather pants on Friends!), and the back, a good ponte.  And while there are lots of options on the market (and believe me, I tried them all), a good fitting pair was really hard to find.  But as usual, thank goodness for JCrew for coming through for me as usual and offering an amazing option in their factory stores.  And an even bigger thank you to my sweet hubby for tracking them down for me for Christmas!

I also have to say that I am loving the neutral color palette of this outfit.  After all of the colors and plaids I have been wearing throughout the holiday season, something just feels really good about going back to the basics.

Hope you are all having a wonderful week.  Thank you for stopping by!

Summer Nights

Last night J and I went with some of our best friends to see one of our favorite musicians at one of the most beautiful amphitheaters ever-Michael Franti and Spearhead at Red Butte Gardens. It was an absolutely perfect night and we had an amazing time. And even though it was a little hot, we still decided to ride our vintage cruisers to the show so we didn’t have to deal with parking-and it was well worth the sweat. A perfect summer night that only served to remind me why I never want to see summer go…

While this outfit is extremely casual, I have to say that I am loving all of the playful colors.  Red and pink are a favorite color combo of mine and I am loving the pops of neon back to the mirrored aviators.  Who says comfort can’t be fun?

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!
