Ruby Dress and Ruby Bloom Grand Opening

The winner for the $300 Target Gift Card Giveaway is Katie Hanson! Please email lilyac13@gmail.com to claim your prize! Congrats! I know I’m jealous!

I have officially decided that all I want to wear this winter is leggings, sweaters, and dresses. So much more comfortable than trying to put on jeans when it’s cold outside. (Ok, I’m exaggerating because I know my next post will probably be me in jeans and you will all call me a liar, but the idea is nice.) However, I love pairing a comfy dress with a big sweater. I got this dress at a new boutique in American Fork called Ruby Bloom (read below about their Grand Opening Party this weekend!). They have actually been around for a little while, but they just moved to a new location and the store is so cute! I love the pattern on the top of this dress. It gives it the perfect character. Add boots and it’s just right for fall. IMG_1459IMG_1471IMG_1465IMG_1480IMG_1472 - Version 2IMG_1486IMG_1474IMG_1458

Chambray, Camo, and Tortoise + Bloggers Give Back

I am a big fan of camo print lately. I didn’t see myself getting into this trend, but I can’t seem to get my hands on enough of it. Plus you all know how much I love leggings, so these are the best things ever. They are not too thin and extremely stretchy, so I highly recommend these ones from Express.

I also am kind of obsessed with the tortoise shell jewelry trend as well. J.Crew has some great pieces, but Baublebar (where this necklace is from) has some for a lot less!

A Baseball Cap for Fall with Animal Print

I always love a hat, but this year I LOVE baseball hats. They’re so casual and cute, but this year the trend is to dress them up and I think it’s fantastic. This outfit is still pretty casual, but the top can be worn either way and adding heels makes it a little more fun. If I wanted to make it even more dressy I probably would have added a jeweled statement necklace, but I thought the printed arms drew enough attention to the top. I don’t like to go too overboard on my outfits unless the occasion calls for it.

And the winner of the Spiegel Trench Coat Giveaway is Roxanne Tomkinson!! Congrats! Please email Lily at lilyac13@gmail.com to claim it!

Sequin Jacket and High Heels

I love to have a statement piece when I go out or dress up. This jacket is obviously that. I saw it at the store and my eyes were immediately drawn to it out of everything there. (And I got lucky because it was on sale! I love when that happens!!!) So I obviously had to get it because it jumped out to me so much. Maybe my shiny lizard jacket will jump out to someone else and I’ll get a date? Haha jk…but really. Ok I’m kidding. I find that most guys don’t notice that stuff anyway and I like to dress for myself or I’m not happy. Anyway, wether your statement piece is an out of control jacket, a jeweled necklace, or just a bright stand-out tee, you just have to find out what works best for you and what you are comfortable with.
