Leopard Print from 3.1 Phillip Lim at Target

I may have gone a little overboard with the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target Collection, but when I got to the store it was all so cute! This sweater and skirt (and the tank I have underneath) is all from the collection. I feel like you can mix and match a bunch of it so I picked up a few different things. I just LOVE the pattern of this skirt. It’s fun and bright, but can definitely be worn into fall.

The other night I got to meet a few other bloggers from Utah and we had a little girls night. It was so fun to chat with them and hang out! They’re all darling and we had so much in common so it was nice to put the faces of all the girls I follow to an actual person. I can’t wait to hopefully see them all again soon!

Trend Alert – Long Nails

At first I wasn’t sure about this trend. I thought that they were scary and looked like witch nails. But then I kept seeing them over and over on cute celebs (not just the scary ones), and I got more interested. Then I was seeing them all over instagram and some of my friends got them and I was like ok I’m going to try them. Now I’m kind of obsessed. I really like them because I think they are lady like if you do them right. Plus, if you want to do any of the fun nail art that’s “all the rage” right now it gives you a lot more room on your nail to do it.

First, here are a couple of my favorite celebs with them!

Adele was one of the first to start doing these.

While, Rihanna and Lana del Rey are repeat offenders, in a good way in my opinion. I always love to see what they are gonna do. Bad Girl gets a little crazy for my most of the time, but I still love seeing hers.images (1)tumblr_ldcor3f4eF1qa3cq2o1_500_large

Lana’s are usually a little long for me, but she’s my beauty idol right now. Love her.lana-del-rey-deliciousnail-trends-stiletto-nails-lana-del-rey

Of course, I think the shape definitely changes how I feel about them. My favorite is the almond shape. The “stiletto” or mountain peak is a little too scary for me. But that’s just me personally and the shape of my hands!

Here are a couple of the ones I have gotten done. I was so obsessed with these first ones. I was so sad when they grew out! But it’s fun because I’ve been finding so many other styles I want to try, especially for fall! I do think that the plain nude nail is one my favorite go-to nails right now though.

Here are a couple more than I’ve found on pinterest and the internet that I love!

Free as a Bird

By now you all know how much I love boots. I don’t just love them in the winter…or the fall…I wear them ALL the time. When I saw these I knew I had to have them. I didn’t care how much or how I got them. BUT! Then I got really lucky and I found them basically half off online AND I got an extra discount with a birthday coupon! I always love when it works out like that.

These photos were taken up at our cabin again. Gorgeous right? Taylor and I went down by the horse pasture, but the horses were way back in the corner, so we just watched them. Ever since I was a baby we’ve been coming up to the cabin and riding the horses. My grandpa and mom taught me how to ride when I was little and I love them. Horses are just the sweetest animals.

I’m mostly a city girl at heart, but I’m in love with this place. I could stay here forever. No cell phone service. You can hike, and ride, and wander forever. You just have freedom and peace here.

Black Hats, but no Broomsticks

It’s very funny how men and women view fashion so differently. I thought this was a cute outfit…well obviously or I wouldn’t have worn it…but I wore it to work one day and I got quite a few comments from the guys I work with. Let’s see…the first one I got was,

“Hey, did you bring your broomstick too?”

I also got compared to Captain Barbossa (from Pirates of the Caribbean, but I assume most of you know that)…Carmen San Diego (which I’ll take) and something else that I am completely blanking on at the moment, but you get the drift. So what I thought was a cute fall hat turned into a Halloween costume apparently. haha. I liked it and I guess that’s all that matters right? As long as you are comfortable and feel good in what you wear I think that’s all that’s important. Plus, I’m a pretty good sport. Maybe I’ll see what character I can be next week 🙂 IMG_1035_2IMG_1046IMG_1039_2IMG_1044IMG_1036IMG_1037_2IMG_1038_2IMG_1034
