Velvet Dress

I am really into anything velvet right now.  It’s been one of my favorite trends since the beginning of the season, and lends itself perfectly to the holidays.  Plus, how cute would this dress be for an upcoming Christmas party?  And at less than $40, it definitely won’t break the bank.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  Can you believe that Christmas is less than two weeks away??

I guess I better hurry up and finish my Christmas shopping!

Holiday Style with Banana Republic

I am so excited to be teaming up with Banana Republic today, to style this cute dress for the holiday season.  And while this is such an easy piece to wear a multitude of ways, I am especially loving it mixed with festive plaids for the month of December.  Plus, it has pockets and is on sale for 40% off this weekend (along with everything else at Banana)!

Olde Stash Collaboration

 

A couple of months ago, I was approached to do a collaboration with a really cool brand called Olde Stash, out of my hometown in Kalispell, Montana.  And because I am such a huge fan of this brand, and wanted to have the opportunity to share Olde Stash with all of you, of course I said yes!  If you follow me on Instagram, you might remember me sharing a little teaser of my time in the studio partnering with the owner (and creative genius!) behind Olde Stash, to design my very own custom bag. And if you don’t remember, here’s a little refresher!

dsc_9964 dsc_9948 dsc_9921 dsc_9959And one of the coolest things about this brand is that not only is my bag one-of-a-kind because I had a hand in the design process, but every bag that Olde Stash creates is also one-of-a kind.  All materials are purchased in small batches, and each piece is not only made to order, but hand crafted in-house in Kalispell, Montana.  And in addition to being totally gorgeous and unique, these bags are created using top of the line materials, including 3mm wool from Germany (the colors are all so beautiful and vibrant), and world-famous Horween leather, that has been tanned in Chicago for over 100 years.

And I have to tell you guys, I used to be a handbag buyer and designer for Sundance Catalog, and have traveled both domestically and abroad sourcing product, and I have never seen anything else like these bags in the marketplace.  They are truly stunning and so unique.  Whenever I carry this bag, I literally have people stop me on the street, in the airport, at work, wherever I may be, to ask me where they can find one.  And so of course today, I couldn’t be more excited to share Olde Stash with you.

So be sure to stop by the Olde Stash website and take a look around.  And if you want to place an order in time for Christmas (any of their pieces would make amazing gifts!), all orders must be placed by the end of the week.  And please feel free to reach out if you need any more info or have any questions.  Enjoy!

Hooded Parka

I have to say, even though I grew up in Montana, and now live in Utah (making me a seasoned winter veteran), I am having a hard time getting used to the cold this year.  So thank goodness for hooded parkas with faux-fur trim, and cozy sweaters (this one is super soft and on major sale) to keep me warm!

Faux Fur Vest

I love a good faux fur vest.  So when we woke up to our first snow in the SLC yesterday morning, a cozy vest was the first thing the I reached for.  For me, they are a winter staple.  Plus, this outfit would be another great option for your Thanksgiving day dinner!dsc_2830 dsc_2861dsc_2883 dsc_2853 dsc_2832dsc_2897 dsc_2852 dsc_2876 dsc_2885

Red Pop

Besides sequins (and velvet this year!), one of my favorite things about dressing for the holiday season, is incorporating pops of red into my outfits.  Whether I’m dressed up, or casual, I love how a subtle pop of red, like a fun pair of shoes (and a Starbucks red cup, of course!), can give your look a festive feel!

OTK

I’m all about the booties this year (if you hadn’t noticed).  But also just as near and dear to my heart, are over-the-knee boots.  There are just so many cute styles available this season-many right around the $100 mark.  And for tall boots, that’s a pretty darn good deal.  So be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post to shop my favorites (all under $150)!dsc_2374 dsc_2368 dsc_2393 dsc_2355 dsc_2377 dsc_2424dsc_2344 dsc_2339 dsc_2414

I don’t know about you guys, but I stayed up late watching the election results last night.  I just couldn’t help myself.  Can you believe how intense it all was?  My head is still spinning!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Choker Collar

One trend I’ve been really excited to try this season is the choker collar. It’s a fun silhouette, that in all honesty, makes me a little nostalgic for the ’90’s.  Plus, how could I resist this dress once I realized it had pockets!  It also comes in a ton of fun colors and is less than $50!

Blanket Scarf

One of my favorite things about Fall is pulling out all of my cozy blanket scarves.  Not only are they practical, but they add such a fun pop of color and texture to your outfit.  Plus, they’re affordable, so it’s a trend that anyone can jump on. And because there are so many good ones out there this year, I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites for you below (all under $30).

Peek-a-boo

Since you guys loved this top so much when I posted it on my Instagram, I wanted to share it on the blog today.  The cold-shoulder trend is one of my favorites, and when I saw this cute little number for less than $30, I immediately snatched it up.  It also comes in a pretty nude color, but it’s selling out fast, so definitely grab one while you can.  It’s SO good!

Happy hump day, friends!  I don’t know about you guys, but I am so ready for the weekend already!
