Downtown

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!!

Put A Vest On It

I am never, ever ready for summer to end, but I am always ready for fall fashion!  And even though the temps are still relatively warm, fall is definitely starting to creep into the air here in Utah and I can feel myself starting to gravitate towards darker colors, neutrals, denim, leopard, light jackets, and vests (of course)!  All of which are super easy key items to start to transition those summer outfits into fall! So if you are ready to get your fall wardrobe going but aren’t quite sure how, try pairing a vest back to your favorite tank and denim…

Vest Friend

This vest has been my best friend lately and on constant rotation in my closet.  Not only is it the ideal outfit completer, but vests are the perfect transitional piece for this time of year.  And how about these Michael Kors shoes?  I am OBSESSED!  Not only are they super cute, but they just might be the comfiest pair of shoes in my closet right now…

I’ve Got The Blues

I love the color blue, but for some reason, it’s a color that I don’t wear very often.  In fact, I hardly have any blue in my closet.  So every once in a while, I find it necessary to remind myself that blue and gray just might be one of the prettiest (and one of my favorite) color combos ever.  And in addition to pretty blues and grays, I think a grandpa cardigan is a must have in every gal’s closet this fall.  Between you and me? I can’t stop wearing mine.  Between this cardigan and my tassel necklace, I think I have a serious problem…

Gone Fishin’

The thought didn’t cross my mind when I purchased this vest a couple of months ago, but when I was editing these photos, it dawned on me that it looks an awfully lot like a fishing vest.  Which in all honesty, makes me like it even that much more-I am a Montana girl after all!  And while I am obviously loving the look of vests this season, one thing I am loving even more is the combination of a bold pink back to a neutral army green and leopard.  It’s the perfect combination of casual yet refined…

About Face

I love, love, love the military trend. Most likely because I have an obsession with cute jackets. And what’s cuter than a bomber? Or a surplus jacket? They are the perfect topper to just about any outfit. And while I normally tend to gravitate towards shades of army green, I couldn’t help but fall in love with this navy number when I spotted it at Macy’s a couple of months back. And even though the temps are still pretty warm, I can already tell that this is going to be a fantastic staple in my fall wardrobe…

White Out

I love wearing white in the summer time. It looks so crisp and fresh and is the perfect complement to a sun-kissed glow. And while it seems obvious to gravitate towards white pants, shorts, and dresses, I think a white skirt is the perfect addition to any wardrobe. It’s a versatile piece that can easily be dressed up (with a silky blouse) or down(with a fun graphic tee) and transitions perfectly from day to night (think blazer for the daylight hours). Plus, it’s the perfect canvas for accessorizing with a little sparkle and a splash of color…

A Birthday In The Bay

If you follow me on Instagram, then you probably know that last week I celebrated another birthday. And because I also had work meetings scheduled in San Francisco, by default I was able to ring in the start of another year in my very favorite city. J flew in to spend a long weekend with me and we had such a fantastic time filled with so many adventures (a surprise sailing trip for my birthday, lots of incredible food, a 70 mile tandem bike ride through the city to the top of Mt. Tam, tons of exploring, and even a little shopping) that I thought I would use today’s post to share my photos from our trip with all of you-through the lens of my iPhone and Instagram, of course!
