Touchstone Crystal+Giveaway

Today I want to introduce you guys to a fabulous jewelry company called Touchstone Crystal.  Now I know the name sounds a little out there (at least that’s what I thought when I first heard about it), but this product is seriously incredible!  In fact, I first discovered it when I thought a girlfriend of mine was wearing diamond solitaire earrings, and when I asked her about them, she let me in on her little secret.  Touchstone Crystal was created by the Swarovski group, and all of the jewelry in turn is made with genuine Swarovski crystals and zirconia (Swarovski Zirconia is the finest simulated diamond in the world).  And do you know what that means?  Not only is the jewelry absolutely gorgeous, and top notch quality, but it is also affordable!  I picked up the beautiful statement ring I am wearing in the below photos and I can’t even being to convey how much I love it.  And not only that, but with most pieces under $100, I can’t wait to add a few more things to my jewelry collection.

Be sure to scroll below for your chance to enter to win one of 2 gift cards to Touchstone Crystal!!

Also, I wanted to take a quick second to wish my hubby a very happy birthday.  There is never a dull moment in our lives thanks to his adventurous spirit, and I feel incredibly fortunate to get to share my days with my very best friend. So here is to you, J, and your best year yet! I love you!

Kiss Me, I’m Irish

Happy St. Patty’s Day everyone!  In honor of the holiday, and my Irish heritage, I thought I would share a look incorporating the color green today.  And of course, no look would be complete without a pop of pink and a little sparkle…

The Blues

I know that for most, blue is a favorite or go-to color.  But for me, it’s never been a super common hue in my wardrobe (outside of my denim).  That is until this season.  For some reason, as of late, I have been craving all things and all shades of blue.  From shoes, to bags, to clothes, I think it’s pretty safe to say that this spring, I’ve definitely got the blues…

Mustard + Leopard

I LOVE the combination of leopard and mustard yellow.  It is hands down one of my very favorites ever. And while I would normally pair this combo back to black, I am loving the added element that a dark wash denim brings to this look…

Pleather

I have been on the hunt for a pair of pleather pants for a while now.  And wow, was a good pair hard to find!  My only requirement was that just the front of the pant was pleather (I didn’t want to end up like Ross in his full leather pants on Friends!), and the back, a good ponte.  And while there are lots of options on the market (and believe me, I tried them all), a good fitting pair was really hard to find.  But as usual, thank goodness for JCrew for coming through for me as usual and offering an amazing option in their factory stores.  And an even bigger thank you to my sweet hubby for tracking them down for me for Christmas!

I also have to say that I am loving the neutral color palette of this outfit.  After all of the colors and plaids I have been wearing throughout the holiday season, something just feels really good about going back to the basics.

Hope you are all having a wonderful week.  Thank you for stopping by!

FPF: Polka Dots

Pretty sure I’ve blogged enough about polka dots to give them a deserving spot on my FPF list. Whether it’s a top, a pair of shoes, a bag, a skirt, a dress, or a pair of pants, polka dots are one of those trends that can truly work for everyone. I mean really, how many other patterns are out there with the ability to portray both a youthful and sophisticated feel?

Happy, happy Friday everyone!  I am back visiting my old stomping grounds of Bozeman, MT for the weekend and am so looking forward to getting some miles on my bike, checking out some of my old favorite places, and of course, getting to see friends we haven’t seen in far too long.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

My Vest Accessory

When I originally put this outfit together, it was sans vest. But one thing I have learned about blogging is that sometimes, the more layers and jewelry you pile one, the better the photos turn out. Apparently there are some instances where more is more! But I have to say that I think the vest really made this outfit complete, and not just for the sake of blog photos. And so, it should come as no surprise, that I am absolutely loving the vest trend again this summer. So if you haven’t already, denim or surplus, it’s time to add one to your closet!

Bandwagon

I’m officially on the bandwagon-the chevron bandwagon, that is. And while I have always loved the print for party decorations, home decor, rugs, throw pillows, napkins, and pretty much anything else I see on Pinterest, I have never been totally wild about the bold print on clothing. Until I saw this cute mini-chevron print blouse at American Eagle, that is. I love the small take on a bold favorite and that it’s the perfect complement to the black and white trend this spring…

And of course, my favorite accent color back to black and white is pink.  There is just something about that combo that I love.  And what better way to add color to an outfit than with a pair of shoes?

Happy Thursday!

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!

Two In One

Today I want to share one of my favorite tricks with you. And that my friends, is wearing a dress as a skirt. It’s such a simple and fun way to double your wardrobe by creating multiple looks with one item-plus it’s also a great money saver. I chose to wear a knotted t-shirt over my dress in this post, but button downs are also an easy option for layering (see here)…

I am LOVING the cap toe trend this season.  And this particular nude and silver pair is definitely one of my favorites.  Not only are they are a great staple that goes with just about everything, but the pop of metallic takes them up a notch making them not just a great neutral, but fun too! And fun is definitely important when it comes to shoes!!!

Happy hump day!
