Mad About Plaid

As if the Fall Cabi line couldn’t get any cuter, now they’ve gone and launched new arrivals.  And guys, they are SO good!  When I got to have a sneak peek at what was coming in the new launch a few weeks ago, this plaid jacket was the first thing I knew I needed to have in my wardrobe.  And it’s even cuter in person.  Plus it’s such an easy piece to style now AND take into cooler temps (and the holiday season!).  Today I paired it with my favorite band tee and OTK boots, but it would also look amazing with a dress, or over a cozy sweater with Sorels when the snow starts flying.

Old Faithful

This skirt is something that I’ve had in my closet for a few years now.  And every summer, I get excited to pull it out because even though it isn’t new, it’s still a favorite piece.  I love the high-low silhouette, and pretty gauzy material, the color, and how it moves.  Plus, it’s surprisingly easy to style multiple ways, which makes it not only a favorite, but a great summer staple too.  I linked some really similar options below for you guys below. But I’d love to know, do you have a favorite item in your closet you love to wear over and over again?

Castaway

I love a good palm print.  So when I saw this dress in the Cabi spring line, I knew it had to be mine.  It’s such an easy fit and a great piece to dress up or down.  In fact, I can’t wait to pair it with some gold sandals and a panama hat when the weather warms up a little!  Also, in case you missed it yesterday, here is a sneak peek at Cabi’s new Fall line.  Everything is SO good, but I am especially obsessing over that long plaid coat!

Throwback

You know what’s kind of a weird feeling?  When you’re old enough to see certain fashion trends cycle back through your life a second time around.  And right now, with so many great ’90’s trends prevalent for the summer months, that’s exactly what’s happening.  And it’s leaving me feeling both a little nostalgic, and a little old. lol But when I was in high school, denim short overalls and denim overall dresses were my favorite.  So I knew it was a trend I would definitely be revisiting this summer.  And I’d love to know, how are you guys feeling about the ’90’s trends in the market right now?

Life Update And A Mini Home Tour

Hi friends! Since I’m 4 months post car accident, I thought I’d give you guys a quick life update.

Last week at my appointment with my Neurologist, we decided that because of the progress I’m making, we could move our appointments from once a month, to once every 3 months.  And that I could start seeing my Neuropsychologist monthly instead of weekly.  To me that’s exciting because it not only means that I’m starting to recover faster than they had initially anticipated, but also because I don’t have to go to the hospital nearly as often.

The other exciting thing, is that I was cleared to go back to the gym.  While I still can’t ski or ride my bike, or play any type of impact sport, I did get the clear to try going back to Orange Theory.  If you guys have been following me for a while, then you probably know that fitness is something that’s really important to me.  I started doing Orange Theory about a year ago, and completely fell in love with it.  In fact, at the time of my accident, I was in the best shape of my life.  I was the leanest I’ve ever been, was running close to a 6 minute mile, and could do more push ups than anyone else I know. Ha! If you know me in real life, then this will probably make you laugh, because I am super laid back and have never been a serious athlete or particularly competitive.  Sure, in high school I played varsity tennis and was a cheerleader, but I lettered more times in music than anything else.  And that was my primary focus in college and into early adulthood too.  But as I’ve gotten older, I’ve really enjoyed pushing my limits, and learning what my body is capable of. Whether it’s a half marathon, back country ski-touring, a 130 mile road bike ride, or competing in the Orange Theory games, I’ve really tried to do as much as possible.  In fact, for whatever reason, when it comes to the gym (and my career), I kind of like to go beast mode. In my own quiet/introverted way, of course.

So even though I was really excited to be cleared to go back, I was also nervous, because I didn’t know how my body, or my brain, would react.  But I have to say, I’ve been pleasantly surprised.  Sure, my 6-pack is gone, I felt a little jiggly on the treadmill, and my running pace was much slower.  BUT I didn’t get dizzy or nauseous, and I was able to participate the whole time.  And while I realize I have a long way to go to get back to where I was, during that first class back, I was struck with an incredible gratitude that I still CAN get back to that place.  Because with a little hard work and dedication, and a whole lot of grace, anything is possible.  And as hard as this whole as mess has been, I am realizing more and more every day, just how lucky I am that I will be able to make a full recovery.  God is so good, and I am so very thankful!

So now on to the rest of the post!  I have been wanting to share these photos with you guys for forever, and with the accident, just didn’t get around to it.  So in honor of my old house officially selling (and because I get so many requests for this kind of post), I thought I’d give y’all a little peek at the space where I used to live!  Better late than never, right?

I am currently in the process of decorating my new house, and I can’t wait to share it with you guys.  It is much more modern than my old one, so I am taking a different approach, which is definitely venturing into new territory for me.  I also might have just ordered a GORGEOUS pink mid-century modern couch.  And I am SO excited for it to arrive.

Hope you guys are having a great week.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Floral Dress

If you guys have been following this blog for a while, then you definitely know I am a huge fan of long-sleeved dresses.  And this Spring is no different.  While I also always love wearing light jackets over dresses this time of year, sometimes it’s kind of nice to leave the extra layer at home.  Plus, I’m always game for any kind of dress with a little twirl factor.  And this one definitely fits the bill!

Hope you guys had a wonderful weekend.  And here’s to making Monday count!

French Kande

I am so excited to be teaming up with one of my favorite jewelry brands, French Kande, to talk about their Spring line today (be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post for a special offer for All Dolled Up readers!).  If you’ve been following me for a while, then you know what a HUGE fan I am of their jewelry.  Everything is handcrafted in LA and cast from original medallions found at local Parisian flea markets.  And not only that, but every piece is unique and each medallion has a special meaning.  The necklace I’m wearing today is my personal favorite piece from the current line.  In fact, it might just be my favorite French Kande piece to date. I love the mix of metal and pearls, and love layering this gorgeous piece or wearing it alone.

Happy Monday, and happy shopping, sweet friends!

Duster

I love a good duster cardigan.  But at only 5’3″, I tend to shy away from them because they typically overwhelm me.  Well thank goodness for Cabi.  Because like everything else they make, the moment I put this sweater on, I couldn’t believe how flattering it was.  Even on my short frame!  And I especially love the placement of the stripes, which make it feel like a really fresh take on an old classic.  A definite must-have for any wardrobe!

Happy, happy Friday sweet friends!  AND happy St. Patrick’s Day!  Does anyone have any fun plans tonight?

Shades of Burgundy

I typically tend to gravitate towards red during the holiday season.  But another great color option (that is often forgotten in place of its brighter counterpart this time of year), is burgundy.  And I am loving the soft combo of this taupe crushed velvet dress back to burgundy accessories and a dark lip.  And would you believe this dress is on sale for less than $30?  It would be perfect for a Christmas or NYE party!
