Staples

Yesterday I talked a little bit about the importance of having balance between classic and fashion pieces in your wardrobe.  But another important closet category that I didn’t mention, is staple pieces.  If you have been following this blog for any amount of time, then you know staples are something I talk about a fair amount, i.e. denim jackets, surplus vests, nude pumps, black handbags, dark wash skinny jeans, etc.  And so today, I wanted to highlight one of my personal favorite closet staples, and that is a casual long-sleeved black dress.

This closet staple is the perfect blank canvas, is easy (and comfy!) to throw on and go, and can be styled in a plethora of different ways.  So if you don’t own a casual long-sleeved black dress, then you are in luck, because I’ve listed my favorites below!

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!

I am so excited to finally be sharing these photos that I shot with the talented ladies of LC Photography late in the Fall.  If you are local to Utah, you should definitely check them out.  Not only are they amazing at what they do, but they are really fun to work with.  And if you are ever in need of a floral crown (and rest assured, EVERY girl should own one-trust me), also be sure to check out my friend Stevi’s Etsy store.  She truly makes the most incredible things and is equally as wonderful to work with!

Merry Merry

Merry Christmas Eve, sweet friends.  I just wanted to take a minute away from the hustle and bustle of all of the craziness and wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas.

I have also been thinking a lot this Christmas season, that while it truly is the most wonderful time of the year for many, for equally as many, it can truly be one of the toughest times of the year.  So I would challenge you all that as you are out and about running last-minute errands today, to follow through on those little acts of kindness that tug at our heart-strings but are so easy ignore the busier we are.

If you think something nice about a stranger you see, tell them.  Open or hold a door for someone.  Don’t be impatient with the sales clerk checking you out.  Smile and say “hello” or “Merry Christmas”  to people you pass.  Buy a drink for someone at Starbucks.  Help a little old lady with her groceries.  Tell your family and friends how much you love and appreciate them. No matter how big or how small, YOU have the ability to really make a difference for someone who is hurting this holiday season and be a light for all to see the true meaning of Christmas.  I love you all so much and am so grateful for all of your support this year.  Thank YOU so much for following along with me on this journey.

Merry, merry Christmas.

Montana Roots

I love a great camo print.  And I can’t help but wonder if it stems from my Montana roots.  But regardless of where my fondness for the print comes from, I am definitely happy that camo is still an important print this Fall season!

Fire In the Sky

Happy Friday everyone!  Remember how I said earlier in the week that I lost all of the outfit photos I had taken while we were on vacation?  Well thanks to my hubby, I was able to salvage the photos from one outfit. And while I am still sad about the others, one, is certainly better than none!  So with that said, I have to tell you guys that I am obsessed with this JCrew top.  I had been eyeing it for quite some time and immediately snatched it up when it went on sale.  The cute embroidered print reminds me of a pink and white Easter dress that I had when I was a little girl, and you all know how much I LOVE neon yellow-a little nostalgia and my favorite pop of color all rolled into one!  Plus, it’s a great statement top that can be easily dressed up or down.  And when the heat index is high, in my closet, easy, breezy, fun tops like these rule!

I’m sure you can tell from the photos, but it was really, really windy when we snapped these pics.  And while normally I would have just waited a day for better weather, the sky was so incredible that I just couldn’t pass up such a gorgeous back drop.  So please don’t mind the wind blown hair!

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Spring Must-Haves (for your feet!)

Before I became an Executive with Macy’s, I was a Senior Footwear Buyer at both Sundance Catalog and Overstock.com.  So it should come as no surprise that I really (I mean really) LOVE shoes!  And so today, because footwear is off the chain this spring, I wanted to share my favorite (and affordable!) picks of the season with all of you…Spring Shoes
