Stripes

I know I’ve blogged about these camis from Express before.  But they are truly the best and worth mentioning over and over.  Not only do they look great with jeans, slacks, jackets, and skirts, but they are reversible, so you are essentially getting 2 shirts for the price of one.  And in my opinion, there is no better time than a change in season to stock up on basics.  So if you are in the market for a great cami (that comes in tons of prints and solids), then this is the one!

Also, don’t put those white jeans away now that Labor Day has come and gone.  They are perfectly acceptable all year long!

Print Mixing

Fashion trends come and go, but one thing that always remains a favorite in my book, is mixing plaid and leopard.  And while this outfit is perfect for warm summer nights, it does give off the vibe of just a hint of Fall.  Perfect for this time of year.DSC_2950 DSC_2931 DSC_2987 DSC_2876 DSC_2935 DSC_2986 DSC_2950 DSC_2921 DSC_2984 DSC_2941Top: Gap (40% off with code: FUNDAY) | Denim: Joe’s Jeans | Cuff: Kendra Scott | Sunnies: Karen Walker via Ditto (rent them for FREE for one month with code: ALLDOLLEDUPBLOG at checkout) | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff | Heels: Steve Madden

Mad for Plaid

I’ve found that it doesn’t really matter the season, in my book, plaid always works.  And right now I am really loving this cute plaid tunic from Chicwish.  Since I’m short, I tied a little knot in it to give help give me some shape (a great trick for voluminous tops if you’re petite, like me!).  And when the temps drop (I can’t believe I’m even thinking about that already), I can’t wait to pair it back to leggings, boots, and a cute jacket.

Hope you guys are having a great week!  Is anyone else following the Olympics?  I am, and I am especially loving the diving and the gymnastics this year.  I just can’t seem to get enough!

Cold Shoulder

It felt like spring here in the SLC this weekend, so I used it as an opportunity to take my pretty new sweater out for a spin.  And I have to say, it really is the perfect transitional piece.  Not only are the colors and the off-the-shoulder styling perfect for spring, but the fabric is super warm and cozy, which makes it appropriate to wear now.  This is definitely a piece that will be getting a lot of use in my wardrobe as we transition from winter to spring.

Happy Monday!!

Strappy

Do you guys watch Project Runway?  It is one of my FAVORITE shows.  And in this past episode, Edmond (one of my faves!) made a gorgeous pant suit complete with a cloud inspired vest.  It was one of my favorite looks of the week.  And the gorgeous, strappy top that he made, reminded me of one I have in my closet that I’ve never posted to the blog.  And so today, I thought it would be fitting to share a classic black and white look complete with a bright a lip.  A perfect Fall date night look inspired by one of my favorite shows!

Gingham

This gingham romper was one of my very favorite purchases of the summer.  And because I’m not ready to put it away quite yet, I decided to change it up a bit and style it with a utility vest and booties to make it more appropriate for the Fall season.  And you know what?  It totally works and I am really loving the look.  What are some creative ways you guys transition your favorite summer pieces into cooler months?  I’d love to hear!

Black and White

It doesn’t matter the season, or what’s on trend for the year.  Black and white is always one of my very favorite combinations.  Especially when paired with a bright lip for a little pop of color.  Not only is it a timeless combo, but a look everyone can wear.

LIPS: Trout Pout by Butter London

So, when I was scheduling blog posts this week, I didn’t realize that I was posting the same jacket in two different colors in back to back posts!  Seriously people, that is HOW GOOD this jacket is.  I literally wear it with everything.  So do yourself a favor and treat yourself to one.  You can thank me later! 🙂

Happy Hump Day!

 

Leather and Lace

I love this time of year when I can transition my summer dresses into the Fall season.  And even more than that, I love that I don’t have to put my white items away after Labor Day!  Because as perfect as this white lace dress was to wear during the summer months, I actually prefer it dressed up with Fall ready accessories.  And if you didn’t buy this FANTASTIC faux leather jacket last year (it is my absolute FAVORITE), it’s not too late, because Nordstrom brought it back again this season.  It really is just that good (and it’s under $100)!

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend.  Can you believe we are back to another work week already??? I think ALL weekends should be at least three days long, don’t you?

 

 

 

Simple

Believe it or not, sometimes I have no idea what to wear. Honestly,  I think we all have those days where we just stand in our closets completely blank, not really knowing where to start.  So when I find myself having one of those moments, I’ve found that sometimes the best solution is to go back to basics and go with what I “know”.  For me, that is a simple top (usually a tank), a favorite pair of jeans, and a pair of pumps.  It’s an outfit I always feel good in and it’s typically appropriate for any occasion.  Plus, it’s a great blank canvas to change-up with a fun necklace, statement pumps, or other great accessories!

And be sure so scroll to the bottom of the post-I’ve got a round-up of the BEST Labor Day sales below (including where you can score my favorite go-to tops, like the one in this post, for 40% off!!!)! Happy holiday weekend, friends!

All About Those Shoes

I have been wanting these shoes for a long time, but was a little unsure about the price tag.  So after adding them to my Nordie’s shopping bag about 50 times over the last couple of months, I finally decided to go for it.  And you know what?  I am SO glad that I did.  Not only are they super comfortable but they go with WAY more than I thought they would.

In fact, I wore them while I was in Seattle this week for meetings and literally had co-workers and people on the street stopping me to ask where they were from!  Plus, since they are a perfect mix between a bootie and shoe, they are a great transitional piece for Fall!
