Statement Shoes

I used to be a Footwear Buyer and Designer when I first began my career in the Fashion Industry.  So I have always had a fondness for shoes.  In fact, often times when I put an outfit together, I plan it around a specific pair of shoes that I feel like wearing.  So when I saw these stunners in NYC a couple of weeks ago, I absolutely could not resist them.  Not only are they super fun (and totally on trend with the tassels and lace-up styling), but are really comfy to boot.  Not into the silver? Well don’t worry.  They also come in a few other colors, which I have linked below as well.DSC_7431 DSC_7434 DSC_7457 DSC_7452 DSC_7502 DSC_7474 DSC_7438 DSC_7464 DSC_7490DSC_7478 DSC_7496

Jacket: cabi (my favorite!!)

Dress: Shein c/o (runs a little small through the shoulders and hips-so size up if in between sizes! for reference, I’m wearing a small, but wishing I had the medium!)

Sunnies: Prada c/o Ditto

Clutch: Clare V. 

Heels: Sam Edelman (also come in pink, blue, turquoise, and nude, and neon orange)

Lips: Stila Stay All Day in Venezia

Happy Wednesday, my sweet friends!  Just a reminder (or in case you didn’t know), I was selected as a finalist to be on the cover of the September issue of Redbook Magazine (ahhhhh!!!)! But I need your vote! So if you wouldn’t mind, I would be so appreciative if you would CLICK HERE and vote for me!

Thank you!

Color

I am always looking for fun and unique pieces to add to my wardrobe.  And when I spotted this shirt, I immediately loved it because not only is it super different than anything I own, but it is also a totally classic silhouette.  Ant that, my friends, makes it an easy top to style, while still upping the ante a bit.  PLUS, it’s great quality and under $25!

Girly

I’m not the most quintessentially “girly” dresser.  And while I love dresses and skirts, I typically tend to gravitate towards denim.  However, when I spotted this cute skirt, tied with a bow, I knew it would be a great piece to add to my wardrobe.  Especially since it’s under $30!

Plus how great are these Valentino dupes?  Not only are they super comfy (and cute!), but they are under $70!

Favorites

Not all outfits are created equal.  There are always some that I love more than others, and this is definitely one of those.  Perhaps it’s because this dress reminds me of something that I wore when I auditioned for collegiate music programs back in the day, or perhaps it’s because it incorporates so many of my favorite things (surplus vest, yellow pumps, Panama hat, dress with pockets, etc.) into one look.  Whatever the reason, this is just one of those outfits that really feels like “me”, and one I can’t wait to wear again!

Flower Power

I love a bold floral print.  Especially when mixed with a good stripe.  It has been one of my favorite ways to print mix for years, and I don’t see myself tiring of this combo anytime soon.  So if you are still feeling on the fence, or unsure about how to print mix, pairing a bright floral back to a stripe is a really easy place to start.

Hope you all had a great weekend!  I was sick in bed, so my weekend was pretty uneventful, to say the least.  I can’t remember the last time I was down for the count like that.  No fun at all.  Hoping I’ll feel back to normal this week.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Abby

P.S. And please excuse my crazy hair in these photos! It was super windy when we were shooting!

 

 

 

Stripes

Stripes, peplum, and jackets.  Three of my very favorite things.  So when I saw this cute little number (for under $20, no less), I knew it was meant to be.  Not only is this a perfect piece for Spring, but it’s a great item to have in your closet to just grab and go.  Gotta love pieces that make getting dressed easy!

Cold Shoulder

It felt like spring here in the SLC this weekend, so I used it as an opportunity to take my pretty new sweater out for a spin.  And I have to say, it really is the perfect transitional piece.  Not only are the colors and the off-the-shoulder styling perfect for spring, but the fabric is super warm and cozy, which makes it appropriate to wear now.  This is definitely a piece that will be getting a lot of use in my wardrobe as we transition from winter to spring.

Skirting the Issue

If you have been following my blog for a while, then you might remember that this past summer, I made a promise to push myself out of my comfort zone and wear more dresses.  While it was difficult at first, I was so glad I did it and really felt like it pushed me to think outside of the box.

So, I have been trying the same thing this winter.  But because of the colder weather, I have found it to be a little more challenging.  That is why I have loved this skirt so much.  Not only is it a beautiful, thick, flannel material, but it has a nice lining, and is the perfect length for the winter months.  So it’s been an ideal piece for me to style when I’m making an effort to wear something other than just jeans or leggings (although it looks great with leggings too! ha!)!

Hope you are all having a great week! Thank you SO much for stopping by!

Pretty In Pink

This coat was a lot different in person than I had anticipated it would be when I ordered it online.  I initially thought it was a trench, but was pleasantly surprised with the fact that it wasn’t.  It’s actually a cozy felt material and feels more like a layering/completer piece as opposed to a jacket.  In fact, it reminds me a lot of this vest that is one of my favorite things to layer with in my closet.

Also, how fab are these pumps?  They look so much like the designer version, but are less than $60! AND they’re super comfy and come in a bunch of colors!
