Girl About Town

My hubby races bikes every Saturday in the Fall.  And after his race, we usually like to find a new place somewhere in the city to either grab a beer or a coffee and a treat to celebrate.  It’s nothing too big or significant, but one of my favorite weekend traditions none-the-less.  And because our Saturday’s are so laid back, my outfits tend follow suit and are generally some variation of the below.  Jeans, puffy vest, booties, repeat…

Long Sleeved Dresses

I don’t know what it is, but I am obsessed with long sleeve dresses this Fall.  Now don’t get me wrong, I love wearing all of my sleeveless dresses with cute jackets and cardis, but when the weather is still fairly mild, I love the idea of changing things up a bit and leaving the jacket at home.  And while I was obviously drawn to this dress because of the sleeves, I also love it’s unique leopard print.  It feels refreshing to me to add a piece to my closet that isn’t a basic leopard, but rather a fun play on my favorite type of print!

Je T’aime

So, I almost didn’t have any blog photos to share with you guys this week.  For once, I was actually ahead of the game and shot some pics over the weekend, but when I went to import them into Lightroom, I received a dreaded error that my SD card was corrupted.  I tried everything to retrieve the photos, but no luck.  So thank goodness for my tech savvy hubby who was able to save the day for me!  And so, in today’s outfit, it should be noted that the message on my new favorite graphic tee is not just dedicated to my love for the combination of neon yellow, and blue, but also, specifically to him.  Je t’aime (I love you)…

Panama

I love a good hat.  And while I have been really into fedora’s the last couple of years, I think that this year, the Panama hat might just be my new favorite.  But since I am a firm believer that a gal can never have too many hats in her wardrobe, there will be plenty of room for both in mine this season. Not only are hats an ideal statement piece, but they are the perfect secret weapon for combating those less than stellar hair days…

Happy Monday!

Chic

Happy Friday, dolls!  I wanted to take today to share one last look from our vacation to Nicaragua with all of you.  And while this was an outfit that I randomly threw together during our trip, it definitely consists of several of my favorite things: mirrored Ray-bans, a big floppy sun hat, and a fun graphic tee.  Perfect for a sunny day in my favorite beach town…

Vacation Style

Hola!! This morning I am writing this post to you guys from San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua.  If you checked out any of last week’s posts, or follow me on Instagram (alldolledupblog), then you know Justin and I are on vacation.  And what a glorious vacation it has been!  This is our 2nd time in SJDS and we are absolutely in love.  Beautiful town, wonderful people, and an incredibly laid back lifestyle which has made it pretty easy for us to just kick back and relax.  The biggest question of the day tends to be whether to go to the beach (surfing for J), or hang by the pool at our house.

We didn’t bring our DSLR with us, so J snapped these photos with his phone out on our patio while we were enjoying our favorite time of the day here…the sunset.  Even Jack (our guard dog), loves to sit and watch the sunset with us and insisted in being in some of the photos with me. 🙂  Maxi skirts, minimal jewelry, and bright tanks have pretty much been my go-to uniform since we’ve been here (outside of bathing suits).  And I am loving the super high slit of this maxi.  Pretty sure it’s my favorite thing that I packed-not to mention that it cost less than $20!!!  Tough to beat that!

Boom Goes The Dynamite

I love this sweatshirt.  In fact, it was the only piece I ended up buying (well, keeping) from the 3.1 Phillip Lim and Target collaboration this past Fall.  I love how playful and fun it is and I especially love that current fashion has made it perfectly acceptable to wear a good old sweatshirt back to boyfriend jeans, red lipstick, and high heels.

I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend!  If you follow me on Instagram (alldolledupblog if you don’t), then you know ours was spent enjoying the incredible Utah back country.   We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful place and so blessed to be able to enjoy it to the fullest.  Now if only the weekends would last a little longer…

Happy Monday!

Bonjour!

I love a good graphic tee.  And since I missed out on the Kiss tee that JCrew launched this fall, I pounced on the Hello tee as soon as I saw it in store.  And boy am I glad that I did.  It’s already made a plethora of appearances in my daily wardrobe, including on NYE when I wore it with a sequin jacket, ripped jeans, and sparkly pumps.  I mean what better way to say hello to the new year than on your t-shirt? And because a t-shirt and ripped jeans back to dressed up accessories is still going to be a go-to look for me in 2014, I can’t wait to come up with more ways to style this tee. But today’s look is probably my favorite to date-ultra laid back and causal with a splash of statement jewelry and a flash of silver accessories…

I don’t know about you all, but yesterday was painful.  I was so not ready for vacation to be over and to be back at work.  But the good news is, we are heading to Denver this weekend.  So I am definitely looking forward to a road trip with my sweet family and a little time spent in the Mile High City!

Hope your week is off to a far less painful start than mine! 😉

I am obsessed with plaid.  It’s all I want to wear, all day everyday.  From button downs, to skirts, to pants, to jackets, plaid is at the forefront of my very favorite fall fashion trends.  And one way to wear it that I am especially loving?  Back to leather and lace.  Duh!
