Dressy

I have made a pledge this year to wear more dresses.  I’m not quite sure why, but I naturally tend to gravitate towards jeans, heels, and cute tops.  But it gets so hot in the SLC during the summer months, that dresses are really a must.  PLUS they are so cute and comfy and fun and I am really loving all of the vibrant prints and colors that I am seeing available in stores this season.  Case and point?  The dress in today’s post.  Not only does the tribal print of this dress lend itself well back to denim, but because it showcases so many different colors, it will be an easy piece to style multiple ways this summer.  And in my book, versatile pieces like this are the key to expanding your wardrobe without spending a lot of money!

I hope you all had a great weekend.  Happy Monday!

P.S.  If you live in the SLC and love coffee, be sure to stop by the new Publik Coffee.  We stopped in to check it out over Memorial Day weekend and fell in love!  It’s one of the cooler places I’ve been in the SLC.  In fact, it’s actually where we shot these photos. And not only is their coffee and ambiance amazing, but they have an entire menu dedicated solely to different kinds of toast.  Brilliant!

Put A Bow On It

When I think about my own personal style, girly and sweet are definitely not the first words that come to mind.  And while I think hearts and bows and frills are all adorable, I don’t normally gravitate towards those types of ensembles.  BUT, every once in a while, I do think it’s fun to put on a girly dress and pay homage to a more feminine style.  And as an added bonus, while most of us are still experiencing in between temps, I absolutely love the option of wearing a button down shirt underneath a dress to change things up from my typical go-to cardi or jean jacket…

Candy Crush

Well no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t quite make it a week without these pumps making an appearance on the blog.  I just love the fun pop of color they bring to any outfit.  So if you don’t have a fun, candy colored pump in your wardrobe, then its high time to add a pair!  I promise,  you will get more wear out of them than you could even anticipate!

Sequin Peplum

I knew the second I saw this top in person that I had to have it.  I had seen it on the Banana Republic website, but didn’t realize just how gorgeous it was until I saw it in the store. This top is absolutely the prettiest mix of a sequined floral print, with just a touch of neon piping.  And I have to say, it is one of those extra special pieces that only seem to come around every once in a while. And even though sometimes they take  a little seeking out, every girl should have a couple of these extra special pieces in her wardrobe!

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?
