Knots Landing

I am so happy that maxi dresses are back on the docket for spring this year. And perhaps what makes me even happier, is the new trend of tying the bottom of your maxi in a knot. It is the perfect (and oh-so-simple) way to change-up an old favorite, making it feel fresh and new for the season!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  Ours was filled with lots of projects and yard work, but it felt great to be extra productive and get things done around the house.  And of course (despite the copious amount of manual labor), it went by way too fast, as weekends tend to do.  Good thing there is a nice, long holiday weekend ahead of us!

Happy Monday!

Neon Dream

It sure was a busy weekend for the Doll family here in the SLC. Two birthday celebrations, two barbeques, and one girl’s night out in Park City made for lots of good memories and laughs with friends. And on top of all of the fun , the weather finally decided to cooperate. So to kick off a weekend full of sunshine and celebrations, I thought it was only fitting to break out one of my very favorite color combinations of the season-neon yellow and grey…

I have been on the hunt for a pair of metallic pumps for the last couple of months.  But since my guess is this will be a fleeting trend (and I’m trying to save up for sandals!), I wanted to find an affordable option.  So I was beyond thrilled when I stumbled upon this pair from Target on sale for only $14.95.  And not only were they a fantastic bargain, but they are really comfortable too.  Talk about an amzing deal!!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

80’s Accent

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times. I love neon. And despite being raised in the 80’s, I am still working on getting my neon fix. But instead of layering multiple neons together, I am loving it as an accent, especially when paired back to unexpected neutrals!

Hope everyone is having a fantastic week.  Thanks for reading!
