Jeffrey Campbell Dupes

I love plaid all year round, but every year when September hits, it’s game on.  But you know what I’m the most excited to share with you guys today?  These booties!  They are absolute perfect dupes for my favorite Jeffrey Campbell version, but are only $40!  I seriously couldn’t believe it when I saw them.  And they’re great quality and super comfy too.  A definite must-have for your Fall wardrobe this season.  But they do run a little small, so I would recommend sizing up a 1/2 size.

Pops Of Red

No matter the time of year, I always love a good pop of red.  Whether it’s a pair of shoes, a top, a cute bag or scarf, or even a bold red lip, it’s a simple way to change-up a favorite outfit, or add some interest to your look.  And it’s especially fitting this time of year with Christmas just around the corner!

Rawr!

I love leopard.  And while I tend to gravitate towards wearing it more often during the cooler months-it is perfectly acceptable during the summer time too.  Especially when paired back to a bright lip and fun accessories.  So if your leopard prints are hanging out in the back of your closet this summer, maybe it’s time to pull them out, dust them off, and give them some summer love!

Same Same

Leopard on leopard.  What do y’all think?  Yay or nay?  I think yay.  I am obviously a huge fan of print mixing, but typically gravitate towards pairing different patterns together (florals and stripes, stripes and leopard, polka dots and stripes, etc.).  And while I believe it’s perfectly acceptable to mix two of the same print together, it definitely works best if you follow a couple of rules.  The first is that the patterns are in the same or a complimentary color palette.  And the second is that the size of the two different prints are contrasting.  Pretty easy, don’t you think?

Sleeved

I have had my eye on this leopard sleeved Townsen sweatshirt for SO LONG!  But I just couldn’t justify paying full price for it (because I don’t pay full price for anything-seriously!).  So when it went on sale for less than half price right after Christmas, I knew I had to pounce (no pun intended!).  And I am certainly glad that I did.  If you follow me on Instagram (AllDolledUpBlog), then you know I rocked a very similar outfit to this one a couple of weeks ago for a shopping date with one of my best friends at Nordstrom.  And there was so much interest in the details of my look, that I decided it should make an appearance on the blog.  So all of you ladies who wanted outfit details, please see below!

I hope that you all had a most wonderful Super Bowl weekend!  We had a great weekend skiing at the resorts and in the backcountry, celebrating the 4th birthday of one of our very favorite little guys, and of course cheering on the Seahawks and the Broncos in the Super Bowl!  It’s not very often that all your homies from the west make it into the big dance.  So even though we may have slightly sided with the Broncos (Peyton is one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met), it was still pretty rad to see the west  represent!

Happy Monday!

Floral Frenzy

It turns out that florals aren’t just for old couches and drapes anymore. But rather, they are a spring fashion must. And while the boldness of an all-over floral pant or top might seem a little overwhelming, it is definitely a trend worth trying. My favorite way to tackle this trend? Colorblocked.

Wicked

A couple of weekends ago, my sweet hubby surprised me with tickets to go and see the off-Broadway rendition of Wicked.  And being the musical theater geek that I am (let’s just say I went to both choir and musical theater camp in the summers growing up), I was beyond ecstatic. The singing, the dancing, the bright lights, and the incredible talent all coupled with a fantastic storyline is my definition of the perfect night.

Without hesitation, J and I both dressed up for the occasion. I went with a simple ensemble of black and white and he with a blazer, button down, and jeans. But during intermission when I was waiting in line to use the restroom and people watching (of course), much to my surprise, I noticed many people weren’t dressed up at all (seriously people, SWEATS???!!!). So this obviously got me thinking, when it is it appropriate to dress up? I know that as a society we don’t hold tight to many rules when it comes to fashion and dressing up anymore, but there is a little old-fashioned piece of me that still believes there are certain events that one should dress up for and I think these events (at least for me) are the following:

  • The theater
  • The symphony/orchestra/chorale/etc.
  • Church
  • Weddings
  • Showers (baby, wedding, luncheon etc.)
  • Work (depending on your job, put a little effort into it if you are able!)
  • Parties, or big events
  • Charity Events

I love a chic black and white ensemble-it is one of my all-time favorite looks.  And as we move into fall, black and white is going to be more popular than ever. In fact, when I went shopping over Labor Day weekend, there was hardly any color in my bag when I came home-if that’s any indication!  But one of the great things about black and white is the ease of adding a pop of color. For my theater look, I threw on a bright red lip and red nails which gave me just enough color to balance my simple black and white dress and accessories.

But I am dying to know, what do you all think about dressing up for specific events and special occasions?
