Vegas Recap

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that J and I were in Las Vegas last week for a long weekend and a bike race.  We had a fantastic time and spent our days riding our road bikes through the Red Rock Canyon, attending Interbike, doing a little shopping, and (mostly) lounging by the pool.  It was a fun and relaxing few days.  But I have to say, my favorite part was the excuse to get extra dressed up for dinner in the evenings.  And any excuse to throw on a little extra sparkle is a good enough excuse for me…

Back To Basics

Not only is Fall officially here, but it is also officially in the air. And the first thing I seem to find myself reaching for these days is my favorite chambray shirt. Paired with fun accessories, it’s a comfy, chic way to kick off the season and ease yourself out of those easy, breezy summer clothes…

Just A Sliver

One look that was all over NYFW that I am feeling a little on the fence about? Midriff baring tops. Now when I was in my early 20’s, I most definitely would have embraced this trend. But now that I am a littler older, it’s daring a look that pushes me out of my fashion comfort zone. And of course, forces me to acknowledge that certain trends are perhaps sometimes better suited for younger demographics. And while you won’t see me baring my full midriff anytime soon, I must admit I love the idea of taking a classic outfit, adding some pretty jewels and toughed-up shoes, and showing just a hint of skin. Now that I think I can handle…

When my husband was snapping these photos, he didn’t realize at first that I was showing a sliver of my midriff.  But when he did, he couldn’t help but laugh at me (thanks a lot!!!).  So hopefully you are not having the same reaction!  But I have to ask, what do you think of the midriff trend?

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!

Oh Deer

I love this tee. It’s just one of those pieces that brings a smile to my face. And while I normally gravitate towards pairing graphic tee’s with denim, I also love the contrast of a casual tee back to something dressier, like a pencil skirt and layered baubles. A whimsical, yet polished look perfect for date night, or a girl’s night out on the town…

I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend!  Ours was spent in Park City with family and filled with lots of biking, eating, and laughing.  And I’ve got to say, it was pretty darn wonderful.

And even thought it’s never easy to get back into the swing of things, I hope you are all having a great start to your week.  Thanks for stopping by!

Drop It Like It’s Hot

Drop. Waist. Dresses. I am absolutely LOVING this look. It is so fresh and such a welcome update to all of the trends we have been seeing as of late. They are fun, flirty, and a fall must-have if you love to wear dresses (like I do). And given my penchant for mixing sassy and sweet, I knew the combo of leather and chiffon made this dress a must have for my fall wardrobe…

Drop Waist Dress: The Limited (ON SALE!!!!), similar long-sleeve version

Long Sleeve Shirt: DownEast Outfitters

Sunglasses: Target (old)

Watch: Michael Kors via Nordstrom Rack

Spike Bracelets: Aldo

Clutch: Michael Kors via TJMaxx, same clutch in python

Studded Shoes: Vince Camuto

The only challenge with drop waist dresses this time of year is finding something to wear over them. I tried several blazers and different jackets with this dress, but none looked like quite right. So I ended up settling on wearing it with a plain long-sleeved black tee underneath, in true jumper fashion. But I am looking forward to playing around with it and coming up with more ways to style this piece. Perhaps a starched white blouse underneath will be my next concoction. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

My very cute, and very funny little dog, Charlie, kept photo-bombing my blog photos this weekend.  What can I say?  She loves shoes.  In fact, when she was a puppy my favorite heels somehow always became her favorite chew toys (NOT good).  But since we share a love for fashion, I figured I’d let her make her first cameo in today’s post!  😉
