Weekend Vibes

If you have followed this blog for any length of time, then you know that I love vests.  And this super soft, tribal printed one from Nordstrom Rack is no exception.  Vests are such a great item to throw on with a t-shirt and jeans, over a cute dress, with shorts and a tank-no matter the season, a vest is an easy piece to take a simple outfit up a notch.

And don’t forget to scroll to the bottom of the post to see who won the Sonix Case from Outfit Yours!!!

Party Pants

Confession time: when I was in high school, my girlfriends and I loved The Spice Girls (like really loved them!)!  So when they came out with their movie, we not only dressed up to go and see it, but we also each had our own Spice Girl name.  And mine was, wait for it, Sparkle Spice!  If you are reading this post and you know me, then this probably comes as no surprise to you.  But for those of you who don’t know me personally, then it should be noted that I LOVE sparkles-glitter, sequins, you name it, if it blings I am in!  So while I feel like people normally bust out their sequins during the holidays or for special occasions, when styled the correct way, I think sequins can be worn any time.  And what better way to dress down a pair of sequin pants than with a favorite tee and a surplus jacket (remember how versatile I said they were in my Wardrobe Staples post??)…

Army Green

I’ve got a thing for army green-no matter the season.  But every year when Fall arrives, it seems to be on with a vengeance in my wardrobe.  Especially if I can wear it with a little leopard. And while I would normally gravitate towards styling this outfit with denim, I wanted to give one of my favorite summer skirts one final hurrah for the season.  And even though the airy gauze and tulle material of this skirt with it’s delicate floral embroidery lends itself incredibly well to warmer weather, I am pleasantly surprised how a little army green and a pop of leopard make it feel perfectly acceptable for the fall season.  And you should see it with a leather jacket!!  Maybe I won’t be putting this one away just yet…

Coral Crush

Sometimes I find that daytime events can be a bit tricky to dress for.  So when I had the chance to celebrate with my sister-in-law at her baby shower while we were on vacation a couple of weeks ago, I was feeling a bit stumped as to what to wear.  I knew I wanted to wear my new chiffon skirt from the Merle Norman store in Draper (see this post), but it felt a little dressy for a daytime event.  So after tearing through everything in my suitcase, I settled on a bright coral t-shirt tank (tied in a knot to tone things down a notch), and of course went with my all-time favorite tried-and-true neon coral pumps, and gold accessories.  And to be honest?  I LOVE the way this outfit turned out and think it would be the perfect choice for a plethora of occasions-day or night.

Raven + Lily

I am pretty sure that yesterday was the first Monday that I haven’t shared a blog post since I launched All Dolled Up.  And if you follow me on Instagram (and if you don’t, you should: alldolledupblog), then you know I have been in Boulder cheering on my hubby at Cyclorcross Nationals.  And while we had a really fun weekend, horrible roads plus a sick husband on the drive home meant having to unexpectedly stay the night in a hotel in the middle-of-nowhere Wyoming.  So my apologies for missing yesterday!

But now that I am back, I wanted to share with you an amazing company called Raven + Lily.   I love to shop fair trade and have shared quite a few fair trade finds and companies on the blog in the past, and so I thought it was important to share the ah-mazingness of Raven + Lily with all of you.  Raven + Lily is a company founded by two women who wanted to use fashion and ethical design as a “a platform to utilize those passions to alleviate poverty among women”.  The necklace I am wearing in today’s post is a favorite of mine from their Ethiopian Collection and was created by HIV positive women from handmade beads made of melted bullet casings from previous war conflicts.  Talk about a powerful statement necklace.  You can read more about Raven + Lily here, and you can shop their incredibly gorgeous collection here, including designs from Ethiopia, Cambodia, and India.  When we are so blessed to live in this great country, and live the lives that we do, I think it’s incredibly important to give back when we can and support companies that empower women around the globe…
