If you hate florals, you’re going to hate me this spring. I love them! This print on this blouse from Tolani, takes it from a regular neutral to a statement piece! And I especially love the fringe ties as well! I also paired it with two of my other favorites trends: a mini bag and mules! I was hesitant to try mules at first because I’m short, but I love them! I think it elongates my legs a little bit more with the pointed toe. Of course, my mini bag is from Henri Bendel. I love the quality and the details that all their bags have!
Sometimes the hardest part of getting ready for me is my accessories. I think they can make or break an outfit! I’ve teamed up with Icing to give you a little preview of some of the accessories I’ll be helping to create my looks with this Spring!
Groundhog’s day was a while ago, but apparently the little guy told us we’ve got a few more weeks of winter. I am not very happy about his decision, but I’m glad I’ve got this waffle cardigan from Tobi to keep me warm! While I am praying that the weather decides to change it’s mind and get a little warmer, I’m going to enjoy the fact that I can also wear these gorgeous boots from Thursday Boots!

Adrianna Papell came through again for Valentine’s Day! It’s the first place I go when I need a fancy look. I love the diversity of their dresses. You’re probably used to seeing me in their fancy sequined gowns, but this one is a just as gorgeous! I love the ruffles and open back. Plus it’s extremely comfortable for a “fancy” dress.
Do any of you have fun Valentine’s plans?
How do you guys feel about the oversized denim jacket look? It took me a while to get back on the denim jacket train in general, but when Lulu’s sent me this oversized one I just kind of fell in love. I think it’s perfect for a little bit of a grungy look, especially paired with the President Boot from Thursday Boots. I love that they are kind of a mix between a motorcycle boot and a menswear boot. They are amazing quality, as each pair is handmade to last, rather than fall apart after a few wears. They are quickly becoming my most worn boots as of late.
I also wanted to tell you a little bit about my beanie! Love Your Melon is on a mission to put a hat on every child battling cancer in America. 50% of the proceeds go towards fighting pediatric cancer. So far they have donated $1.5 million to nonprofit organizations to help fight this and have donated over 80,000 hats! Plus it’s really warm and cute…so it’s a win win for everyone!

I’ve got another date night Valentine’s look today! I usually don’t wear dress pants, but these front slit pants from Tobi are so unique and fun that I had to try them out! I love the detail they add to my outfit. I had to balance out how great the bottoms were with this absolutely amazing crop top from Saylor NYC. I was going to wear this top for New Year’s Eve, but I ended up not really doing much for New Year’s Eve, so I figured why not pull it out for the next holiday! The good thing about wearing silver sequins is that you can pretty much wear them any time of year!
You can’t really see it that well in these photos, but my mantraband bracelet says “Love You to the Moon and Back”. I’ve always loved this saying, but I think it makes it a perfect Valentine’s gift as well. Not too expensive, but says just the perfect thing! And it’s great for everyone. You could give it to your wife, your girlfriends, your daughter, or anyone who is your special Valentine!
I’ve got another dress from Tobi for you today because their deals are too good to pass up! This dress is only $24 right now! Say what?!? Hurry over and grab it because you can style this so many ways! I think it would look so cute in the spring with a denim jacket or at a summer concert without the long sleeve underneath and boots!
P.S. I’ve kind of forgotten how good deals at the outlets actually are. This bag was 50% off at the Michael Kors outlet store at the Outlets at Traverse Mountain in Utah! I went shopping at a bunch of different stores to put together a Valentine’s look for you (and an upcoming giveaway!) and I couldn’t believe how good the deals were! They have J.Crew, Loft, Banana Republic, Nike, Coach, and so many more stores that have outrageous sales! I’m talking up to 80% off at some of the stores!

If any of you follow me on snapchat then you probably saw the little disaster that happened on this shoot. Actually it ended up not being too bad, but it could have been so much worse! We drove out towards the Spiral Jetty in Utah to shoot, but we didn’t realize exactly how bad the roads would be. Jordan and I had a little accident where we spun off the road and got stuck in a ditch because of the snow! Oopsie! Haha if you follow me at all, you probably also know that I have had the worst luck this month with cars…I got side swiped on the freeway in early January, got a flat tire in my rental on the way home from another shoot, and this little incident…sooo needless to say, I feel like I probably shouldn’t get into a car anymore! We were in Jordan’s car, but I feel like I brought on the bad luck. :/
There was no service where we were so we started trying to dig the car out of the snow. After that didn’t work we figured we had better start walking to find service. The Spiral Jetty is kind of in the middle of nowhere. So we started walking…and walking…and walking…no bars! I felt like the guy on that commercial waving his phone in the air to try to get service…o wait, I was that guy. But, you guys will not believe it! After not seeing another car the entire time we were there, a tow truck drove by! What? How in the world did we get that lucky? Plus he didn’t even charge us! #blessed
Like I said, it could have been much worse! I was worried we were going to have to sleep in the car if it got too cold and dark to keep walking. But we got the car out and were able to get some shots! Hallelujah!
This dress is from Bling It On Dress Rentals. I thought it was perfect for Valentine’s or a Sweethearts Dance, but it also kind of makes me think of Star Wars for some reason? Anyone else? I love the flowing panels and how unique the neckline is. Bling It On has tons of cocktail and formal dresses available to rent! We all know how much money buying a dress costs, and you only get to wear it once anyway! If you are in Utah, I suggest visiting them if you have any upcoming events or dances!
