I am all about army green surplus jackets and they always seem to reign supreme in my closet this time of year. But truth be told, this camel color jacket has been my absolute favorite this season! It’s such a refreshing alternative to the ever popular olive-green jacket, and the gold hardware makes it feel extra special.  It really is the perfect piece to throw on with jeans for all of those weekend errands and last-minute Christmas shopping!!

Bloomingdales Friends and Family
I love a good deal.  In fact, I rarely ever pay full price for anything.  So when my favorite stores (like Bloomingdales!!!) have their Friends and Family sales, I tend to get a little excited.  Especially with Christmas just around the corner.  It’s the perfect time to make a wish list, don’t you think?
**Bloomie’s Friends and Family runs today through Sunday.  Be sure to enter code BFAM at checkout for 20% off of almost everything (regular and sale prices)**
Happy shopping!!!

Back To Reality

I am having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that our big trip to Nicaragua has come and gone and it’s back to the grind. But I must say that we had an absolutely incredible vacation-really it was the adventure of a lifetime. Once I get settled back into the swing of things and organize my photos (and my life!), I will be sure to share a post with a little more insight into our unforgettable time in paradise.

But for now, what better way to kick off the week than with a pretty punch of color back to a wintry white back drop. A little fashion cheer to brighten up a dreary Monday…

Take A Walk On The Wild Side

I heart leopard pants. And while I know they seem like a scary and silly thing to add to your wardrobe, I urge you to step out of that comfort zone of yours and try a pair. I swear, every time put mine on, I feel sassy, and fun, and super stylish. Plus they are surprisingly flattering. Especially if you go with a smaller print, like I talked about in this post.

My parents were in town over the weekend and my dad wanted to watch J and I take blog photos-which was somewhat awkward for me, but sweet that he wanted to see how this whole blogging thing works. And while he couldn’t have been more supportive, I have to say that he was not nearly as appreciative of my leopard pants as I hope you all will be! I suppose they are just one more thing we can add to the list of things men don’t understand. 😉

Sending lots of prayers and positive thoughts out to my all of my friends on the east coast. Stay safe!


The One That Got Away

I have been on the hunt for a great leopard bag for quite some time now-ever since I fell in love with one and made the mistake of not buying it. And while I thought my wish list was pretty simple (nothing too expensive, versatile animal print, and big enough to schlep all of my stuff to and from the office and on errands around town), apparently I was wrong. And so, after looking high and low with absolutely no luck, I had all but given up. That is until I spotted it during a recent store visit-the one that got away.

Cognac Boots:  Aldo Farmar, similar

I think perhaps what originally drew me to this bag, and ultimately led me to purchase it is its coloring.  Because it has a lighter base and lots of different shades of tan, cognac, and brown, not to mention some very subtle black detailing, it is one of those pieces that will go with just about anything in my closet.  I couldn’t be more excited to have found it again (and for such a great bargain!), and know that I am going to get a lot of use out of it this season!!




I LOVE a great chambray shirt. And perhaps even one step better is a great chambray shirt with a western flare. Maybe it’s my Montana roots that draw to me to this particular trend, or maybe it’s my current obsession with button-downs, but I can’t stop wearing them. Plus it doesn’t hurt that it’s one of those on-trend items that is a hybrid of fashion and comfort-something that doesn’t happen nearly as often as it should!

Another great thing about chambray shirts is that you can style them a multitude of different ways.  Not only do they look great back to black and animal print, but they also look great with cognac boots and accessories, colored denim (I especially love them with red skinnies), and, of course, tucked into sweet skirts for a flirty and edgy feel.  They are a great fall staple and I highly recommend adding one to your closet if you haven’t already.

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
