Girly

I’m not the most quintessentially “girly” dresser.  And while I love dresses and skirts, I typically tend to gravitate towards denim.  However, when I spotted this cute skirt, tied with a bow, I knew it would be a great piece to add to my wardrobe.  Especially since it’s under $30!

Plus how great are these Valentino dupes?  Not only are they super comfy (and cute!), but they are under $70!

Red and White

Well hello there, sweet friends!  Apologies for being a little MIA on the blog this last week.  If you follow me on Insta (and if you don’t you can find me here: alldolledupblog), then you know I am on vacation with my hubby in gorgeous San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua.  It is our 3rd time visiting this beautiful country and we are having a blast!  I had some blogs scheduled to share with you this week, but our internet has been a little spotty, so today is the first day I am able to share one of my planned posts with you!

I picked up this fantastic tulle skirt from Windsor Store for the holidays, but have found countless ways to wear it sine then.  And I know I will be able to get a ton of use out of it in the coming months as well.  In my opinion, a girl can never have too many tulle skits-especially when you can snag this one for under $35!!!!!  So if you have been looking to add a tulle skirt to your closet, this is really a great option AND it comes in lots of super cute colors!

Panama

I love a good hat.  And while I have been really into fedora’s the last couple of years, I think that this year, the Panama hat might just be my new favorite.  But since I am a firm believer that a gal can never have too many hats in her wardrobe, there will be plenty of room for both in mine this season. Not only are hats an ideal statement piece, but they are the perfect secret weapon for combating those less than stellar hair days…

Happy Monday!

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!

Buffalo

I love plaid.  Like really love it.  But of all of the cute plaids I’ve seen this season, a classic buffalo check plaid just might be my favorite.  And so when I saw this scarf at Gap (for 40%!), I knew it was coming home with  me. And hats!  Oh my gosh.  I LOVE hats!  I mean really, how easy (and fun) is it to just throw on a super simple outfit and a few cute accessories to really an outfit take it up a notch!

Grounded

You might have guessed pink, but yellow is actually my very favorite color.  And one of my favorite ways to wear it as of late is in a neon hue back to black with a pop of leopard.  And while I believe it’s perfectly acceptable to wear neon and bright colors all year round (and do!) during the colder months, it is good to ground them with darker colors making your brights feel more appropriate for the season…

Camo Couture

Since I’m heading down south tomorrow, it seems I’ve got camo on my mind.  And believe it or not, camo just happens to be one of my very favorite prints.  Maybe it’s the Montana girl in me, or maybe it’s the years I spent below the Mason Dixon line-either way, I couldn’t be happier that it’s an important print for the season.  Kinda feels right up my alley-especially dolled up a little!

P.S. Can you believe it’s October already?  Holy cow!  Where on earth did the month of September go?

Graphic

I am really into graphic tees right now. Like, really into them. I love the idea of throwing on a tee-shirt back to a ripped up pair of jeans and then adding fancy heels and accessories to dress up the look. I guess maybe it makes me a feel a little rock and roll. Plus, it’s a great way to be super comfy while looking put together at the same time.

So I have to say, as much as I love graphic tee’s, I do find it a little difficult to find a good one.  It seems to me that more often than not, the sayings on them tend to be a little young, or too cliché for me to want to broadcast on my body.   So if you are on the hunt for one (and you should be!) the best luck I’ve had in finding cute, age appropriate graphic tee’s is at JCrew, JCrew Factory, American Eagle, and TJMaxx.

Hope you all had an amazing weekend.  Can you believe that it’s almost Labor Day?  I know that I sure can’t.

Summer Brights

I love neon. Especially a nice, bright neon yellow. And while it isn’t the easiest shade to wear, yellow in general is my absolute favorite color, so I’m partial. Which is why, of course, I couldn’t resist this pretty top. And while I can’t recommend this hue for everyone, what I can recommend is a pretty, dressed-up tank back to ripped jeans and heels for a summer night out on the town…
