OTK

I’m all about the booties this year (if you hadn’t noticed).  But also just as near and dear to my heart, are over-the-knee boots.  There are just so many cute styles available this season-many right around the $100 mark.  And for tall boots, that’s a pretty darn good deal.  So be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post to shop my favorites (all under $150)!dsc_2374 dsc_2368 dsc_2393 dsc_2355 dsc_2377 dsc_2424dsc_2344 dsc_2339 dsc_2414

Dress (under $50 and comes in a bunch of cute colors/prints!) | Necklace | Sunnies | Bag | OTK Boots (under $100!), also love these, these, these, these (velvet!) and these

I don’t know about you guys, but I stayed up late watching the election results last night.  I just couldn’t help myself.  Can you believe how intense it all was?  My head is still spinning!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

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!

My Perfect Dress

You know when you walk into a store and see something and you just know that it was meant EXACTLY for you?  That is how I felt when I spotted this dress at Macy’s a few weeks ago.  I mean really.  A long-sleeve dress that is leopard AND pink?  I couldn’t have made it more perfectly for myself!  lol.  And you know what’s even better about it today?  It’s on MAJOR sale.  Like under $30 on sale. So be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post for details. This is definitely a dress you don’t want to miss out on!

I am obsessed with long-sleeved shift dresses.  But you know what?  Cute ones are incredibly hard to find.  So when I decided I wanted one for our trip to Sonoma a couple of weeks ago, I knew I could count on my go-to LuLu’s to have some cute options.  And I have to say, as usual, they did not disappoint.  So if you have yet to check out LuLu’s, then I highly recommend that you do! They have a plethora of styles at really reasonable prices, quick shipping, and awesome customer service.  Plus, they are constantly adding new arrivals to their site, so there are always lots of fun things peruse!

I don’t know about you guys, but I am SO excited that it’s Thursday.  This holiday weekend (and all of the amazing sales!) seriously can’t get here soon enough.  Be sure to swing back by later this week(end), as I’ll be sharing a round up of all of the sales happening that you won’t want to miss!

Thanks for stopping by!

I love a good shift dress.  It’s a great way to look polished without really putting in much thought or effort.  Because let’s face it, sometimes getting dressed can be really HARD (no matter how many clothes you have in your closet!).  So I always try to have a couple of these on hand in basic colors-a wardrobe hack, if you will.  They are super flattering on just about any body type, and pair well with boots or pumps, blazers or denim jackets, and also happen to look great paired with faux fur vests!  So if you don’t have a basic shift dress in your wardrobe, you should.  Just another one of those items that will give you a ton of outfit options without breaking the bank!

Geometry

I was never a huge fan of geometry, but I do love a great geometric print!  And this dress is no exception.  Not only is it fun and unique, but it’s also a fantastic piece to wear for work or play.  And if you are looking to make the most of your wardrobe, then a versatile dress (or two!) is key!

I LOVE a good shift dress.  Not only are they the ultimate in comfort, but they are a perfect piece to wear to work during the summer months.  Easy, breezy, and professional.  They are also a great transitional piece to take from day to night, or casual to dressy.  If you follow me on Instagram (and if you don’t, you can follow me here) then you know I wore this dress paired with a denim vest to a friend’s baby shower over the weekend, which gave it a slightly more casual vibe than today’s post.  Once again, another versatile piece that is great to add to any gal’s wardrobe!

Shifting

I’m not ready to give up my dresses just yet-nor am I ready to break out the tights just yet either.  So I’ve found that the best way to extend the life of my favorite dresses into the Fall season is with a little layering.  And I am absolutely loving the look of a casual chambray shirt back to a more dressed up shift dress. For me, it’s the perfect alternative to a basic cardigan…

I hope you all are having a fantastic week.  I am hitting the road again for work today, which always makes things a little hectic in my life.  But be sure to stop by again tomorrow for another new outfit post!

No Place Like Home

There is just something special about a pair of red shoes.  Maybe it’s the Dorothy Gale in me, but I’ve been drawn to them since I was a little girl and have always longed for my very own pair of ruby red slippers.  And while I doubt these will take me anywhere with the click of my heels, at least they are pretty (and amazingly comfortable too)…

Seeing Spots

Two black and white outfit posts in a row-now that’s saying something for a girl who loves color like I do. And contrary to how I thought I might feel, I have found the black and white trend to be quite refreshing this season. So considering this and my penchant for snow leopard prints (which you can read about it here) it’s no surprise that this dress caught my eye on a recent H&M trip. A hybrid of leopard and polka dots all wrapped up in black in white? How could I resist.

As I noted in yesterday’s post, J and I headed on a road trip to Montana this past weekend so J could ride in the annual Rolling Thunder cross race in Missoula.  It is a weekend we look forward to every year, not only because of the terrific event, but because we get to see family and friends while we are there.  And this year, of course, did not disappoint.  J had a podium finish in one of his two races, I snuck in some time with girlfriends (including meeting one’s little boy for the first time!), and most importantly, we were blessed to spend the weekend with J’s dad, and his brother and his wife (who just moved to the neighborhood where these photos were taken!!).  It was a long drive home on Sunday, but the weekend was well worth the trip.
