Favorites

Not all outfits are created equal.  There are always some that I love more than others, and this is definitely one of those.  Perhaps it’s because this dress reminds me of something that I wore when I auditioned for collegiate music programs back in the day, or perhaps it’s because it incorporates so many of my favorite things (surplus vest, yellow pumps, Panama hat, dress with pockets, etc.) into one look.  Whatever the reason, this is just one of those outfits that really feels like “me”, and one I can’t wait to wear again!

Utility

One thing I learned when I started All Dolled Up is that my sense of style is pretty repetitive when it comes down to it.  So blogging has been a great exercise for me to push myself to wear things I normally wouldn’t.  But one item that has and always will be a favorite in my closet, is a great utility vest.  And for me personally (all blogging aside), it really doesn’t get any better than a utility vest styled with my favorite leopard pumps, my favorite jeans, and my favorite thermal tunic top.  So if you are looking for an easy, go-to outfit to add to your rotation, this is a great one that is super easy to recreate!

Personal Favorites

Whether you know me through the blog, or know me in person, then you probably know that I love vests.  I am also a big fan of stripes.  So it should come as no surprise that today’s outfit is a typical go-to uniform for me.  You know those outfits that just feel comfortable?  This is one of those for me. An easy, breezy combo that still feels put together, all while being super comfortable. Perfect for a Monday.

Sun Drenched in Stripes

This outfit (or some sort of similar variation) is on serious repeat in my daily wardrobe: stripes, a surplus vest, my favorite skinnies, and leopard pumps.  Fall uniform perfection, if you ask me.  So if you are looking for an easy Fall look to live in or recreate, then I’d highly recommend this one!

Transition

You guys!  Can you believe it’s September already?  Holy cow!  Where the heck did summer go?  And while there is part of me that always hates to leave the summer months behind, I certainly do love Fall.  Especially Fall fashion!  And if you know me in real life, or have followed my blog for very long, then you know my love for military vests during the Fall season.  And this year they are back again and bigger than ever!  So if you didn’t snag one last year, you can shop my picks below  (all under $100!)!  A vest is DEFINITELY something versatile that every gal should have in her closet this season!

If you follow me on Instagram (and if you don’t, you should follow me @alldolledupblog), then you might have seen my post about these gorgeous Prada sunnies.  I LOVE designer sunglasses, but hate the expensive price tag.  So when I discovered Ditto, I knew it was perfect for me.  You can rent a pair of DESIGNER sunglasses (think Prada, Karen Walker, Ray-Ban, Illesteva, etc.) for just $19/month (they even have prescription!)! You also get free shipping and can change out your sunnies as often as you want.  How amazing is that???  And even better???  Try it for one month FREE by using code: ALLDOLLEDUP at check out!  ENJOY!

 

White After Labor Day

I’m baaaaaack!  Been a bit of a rough week for me over here.  I got some bad spider bites while we were on a float trip this past weekend and have been having an allergic reaction to them in the form of hives all over my arms and legs!  Gross!  Didn’t figure you all would want to see that on the blog, so I’ve just been taking it easy this week.

Fortunately, I started to feel a little better last night which is why I’m finally back today.  And good thing too, because I want to talk about how much I love white pants!!  I was so hesitant to buy them at first because I knew I would get them dirty (which I pretty much do every time I wear them), but it has been so worth it.  Not only do they look great with almost every cute summer top in my closet (especially bright colors!), but I can’t wait to transition these bad boys into Fall with booties and oversized sweaters!  Who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day???

Weekend Vibes

If you have followed this blog for any length of time, then you know that I love vests.  And this super soft, tribal printed one from Nordstrom Rack is no exception.  Vests are such a great item to throw on with a t-shirt and jeans, over a cute dress, with shorts and a tank-no matter the season, a vest is an easy piece to take a simple outfit up a notch.

Sunshine

I am a huge fan of pink, but it’s the color yellow that will always be number one in my book.  So when I saw that my favorite shirt comes in a brilliant shade of yellow for Spring, it was a total no-brainer for me.  And while I dressed it down today with my favorite military vest, I am already scheming up more ways to wear this fabulous shirt!  Don’t love yellow? Don’t worry.  This blouse comes in a multitude of colors and is the perfect top to add to your closet for work OR play!

Layers

We have had such a mild fall here in the SLC, that I almost forgot how brutal it can be to have to take blog photos during the winter months.  But boy, was I sure reminded in a hurry when we shot these photos on Saturday.  I guess it’s time to break out the winter coats, and pile on the layers.  And speaking of layers?  Surplus vests over plaid and flannels is still a combo at the top of my list this season…

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!
