A Military Vest

Alright – who’s snowed in today?!  I’m totally jealous!!  We got a little bit of rain today and to be honest, I’m surprised that didn’t make headline news.  Living in the dried climate imaginable has made me appreciate even the smallest bit of precipitation.  Rain, snow, we take what we can get!  Ava, on the other hand, has adjusted just fine to life in Las Vegas.  She practically melts(down) even when it so much as sprinkles here.  I need to get this girl in the middle of a southern-style thunderstorm, asap!

Today’s look brings out of my favorites, a utility vest.  You might remember the one I bought this past fall at Anthropologie that I wore quite a bit!  It was so flattering and I love how it cinched at the waist to keep my figure in place.  This most recent vest that I grabbed is a little bit different in that while you can still make the waist smaller around your hips, the strings to do so are hidden inside the jacket.  This vest is also a little bit longer and it doesn’t have the oversized collar around the top.  Either way, I think they both offer great layering options for your outfit and seeing how quilted vest aren’t going to transition too well into the spring and summer, this is a great alternative.

I’ve gotten a few questions about these booties/mules that I bought a few weeks ago and how the sizing runs.  I guess a few reviews online have mentioned that they run a little bit big and as you can kinda tell in today’s picture that there is a little bit of room by my heels.  For me, though, because the toe is narrow I know I couldn’t size down without having my foot cramped in the bottom or my heels hanging off the ends.  Shoes that look too small are a small pet peeve of mine so that’s my reason for always going up instead of down.  I hope that helps!

Have a great Tuesday, everyone!

Grey and White + Insta Love + Piperlime Promo

First off, I promise I’ll stop hiding behind bags – asap.  What is that?!  Of course, mostly I’m just getting used to my newest love but, ya know, we’re still in that middle stage where it just looks a little like too many treats over the holidays.  It’s mostly a habit now that I’m sure will fad away!

Today’s big winner is definitely going to be the fact that I finally, finally, FINALLY….found white jeans!  Yes, friends, finally.  I mean, whyis this so hard?!  Well, in the past, here are the few things that constantly came with new white jeans and why they never worked out with me.  I can’t stand when the material isn’t thick enough (see through!), when it isn’t snug and stretchy enough (sloppy!), and when they’re too dang long.  Being 5’3″, you can imagine that this happened pretty much every single time.

That being said, here are the few things that made today’s pair my new all time favorites.  First, I love that their cropped.  They’re the perfect length and require no alterations or cuffing.  I’m always worries that they’re going to be too sheer and as soon as I tried them on, I knew they were plenty thick and definitely NOT see through.  Finally, they have a comfortable and snug stretch to keep the jeans tight and in place.  All around fabulous pair of jeans that are just weeks away from meeting my newest bella band.

I wore this awesome sweater over the weekend in ivory (See here) and when I first picked it up in store, my initial reaction was to how soft it was and how much wear I could get throughout the year.  It’s not wool and definitely could be your go-to warm sweater in the spring and fall when you’re not in the mood for winter-wool.  It does run fitted so I opted for a small, not an x-small.

Las but not least, this is going to be the summer of the “wedge” and the “mule” sandals, heels, shoes…whatever.  I’m clearly obsessed!  Of course, I love a wedge platform because you get the advantage of height but not the discomfort of a stiletto.  This pair was an immediate win.

Have a great Monday, everyone!  Cheers to a fab week ahead!

 When I first spotted this maxi skirt, the look that popped into my mind looked a little something like this :

Pleated Maxi Skirt, Bright White Tank Top, Tan Flat Sandals, and Gold Jewelry.  Summery Perfection.

Until then, I gave it a little springtime twist before those warmer summer days arrive.

Mint and White + Current Favorites

Hello, Friday!

I told you I loved this vest, right?!  So cute, I’m sure I won’t be able to resist it next week, too.  I love the length so much and the lighter color which makes me think it pretty much goes with everything.  This minty blouse was hard to pass up because I honestly don’t have anything remotely like it in my closet and my current obsession with neutrals and pastels has become a little ridiculous lately.  I kind of wish this pretty piece also came in a pretty coral!

My sleep this week has been a little crazy.  I’m not sure if it’s pregnancy related but I can’t seem to keep my eyes open at night and generally fall asleep with Ava – only to wake up around midnight and write a quick post.  Phew – it’s not ideal.

Hopefully next week y schedule bounces back to normal!

Have a great weekend everyone!

A Grey Cardigan + Some Current Favorites

Marled Grey Sweater Cardigan, White Long Sleeve Tee, Dark Rinse Denim Skinny Jeans, Tan Mules, Cranberry Crossbody, Loft, Gap, Seven for All Mankind, Dolce Vita, Tory Burch 6 No pressure or anything – but this cute little casual sweater is 50% off until 10 am EST today.  Ha – right?!  I have a love/hate relationship with “flash sales”.  Meaning, if I can’t get through my emails fast enough, you’re out of luck.  Gah.

Me, well, I’m a sucker for a basic grey cardigan because they go with everything and are so easy to toss on when you’re feeling a little chilly.  I love the grey marled look here with all the white mixed into the sweater as well.  I couldn’t pass up just a basic long sleeve tee underneath to keep things nice and simple.  It’s funny how much Las Vegas has changed my idea of what’s “cold” anymore…  I still sit under a blanket in fleece pjs even when it’s 60* outside.  Man – I’m sure wherever we go next (assuming it’s not another desert, I’m in deep trouble when a real winter rolls around!)

Have a great Thursday, everyone!
