Sorry I’m Not Sorry

I find it to be kind of amusing when people use the term “Sorry I’m not sorry”.  And I have to say, that is exactly how I feel every time I slip on these neon heels.  I mean, let’s be honest, I am pretty much obsessed with them.  They are so super comfy, go with just about everything, and bring such a fun element to any outfit. And even though they are from last summer, I still can’t seem to get enough.  So I am just going to have to put it out there-I’m sorry I’m not sorry that you are (once again this season) going to be seeing a lot of these pumps on the blog…

Tried and Tulle

To say I can’t get enough this Lookbook Store jacket would be an understatement.  I adore it.  I also adore this American Eagle dress-even though it’s a couple of years old.  And with the tulle trend still in frenzy mode, I am certainly glad that I have held onto it.  It’s definitely on frequent repeat in my closet and even on the blog!  You can see another favorite way I’ve styled it here

So I have to say, I absolutely LOVE these shoes, and I am super bummed about the dye transfer on them around my ankles (yikes!!).  So I have to ask, does anyone out there have any good products or remedies to remove denim markings from suede?  Please share if you do!  Otherwise, these shoes are going to have to be worn with pants only from here on out!

Thank you so much for all of your sweet comments and support.  I appreciate you guys so much!

Radiant Orchid

I have to admit, I usually get pretty excited every year when Pantone announces their “official” color of the year.  But last year I was so thrilled when they announced that the “it” color of 2013 was Emerald Green, that I didn’t hold out much hope for 2014-that is until they announced that their official color of the year was Radiant Orchid (insert swoon here).  Now if there is one color that could top Emerald Green in my book, this is most definitely it.  So what better way to kick off my 2014 blog posts than with an ode to Radiant Orchid, Pantone’s official color of 2014…

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season.  I have to admit, I’m a little sad to be back to the grind today.  My time away from work just seemed to go by so quickly.  But the good news is, I have a lot to look forward to in the next couple of months!

Happy Monday!  And thanks for stopping by!

P.S.  How amazingly gorgeous is Utah?  So blessed to live in this beautiful state!

Mad for Plaid

I love plaid.  Which is lucky for me, because it’s a key trend this fall season.  And while I am so excited for all of the different ways I have up my sleeve to style this beloved print, right now, I am loving it paired back to leather and chiffon.  A slightly masculine spin on a pretty fall dress, if you will (click here to see how I styled this dress last year)…

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!
