Albion Maternity Looks

Oh the joys of being pregnant… It’s rough trying to find things that fit me right and if you are currently pregnant or have been before, you know my pain. It’s already a challenge to find things that fit your normal body just right, and then you add in a bump and it just goes downhill… Some mamas carry high, some carry low. Some have their babies situated more side to side and others seem to carry much farther outward. Wherever your baby sits, it can be a difficult balance to juggle how the heck to cover the thing once it’s time to get dressed in the morning. I’ve moved 90% of my clothes into another room because it’s depressing to look at a closet full of items that I can’t wear. Although it’s also depressing to look at an empty closet… Anyway, for this post I’ve partnered with Albion to show you a few items that you can wear before, during, and after your pregnancy (YES)! THESE JOGGERS. I’ll admit, I do own them …

3 NYFW Looks

I haven’t gotten around to posting all of the details on the three remaining NYFW looks that I was able to shoot, so here they are! Studded Sneaks Studded boots, studded bags, studded sneakers… I dig the studded trend. I scored these babies from J/Slides and I’m pretty stoked about it. These are my third pair of shoes from them and they don’t disappoint! The quality has always been fantastic, and as you know, I’m kind of a shoe snob… To start, they are super comfy! And I love the higher sole. Not quite a platform, but the shoe does have some height which I like. I’ve paired them here with this dusty pink top and this floral jacquard coat that I am absolutely obsessed with.    Duster Vest I’m a sucker for a duster vest… I just am! I wanna buy like 100 this season! I feel like they add a level of sophistication that somehow only they can accomplish. I don’t know if that really makes sense or not, but I just dig …

NYFW Shows + Velvet Maternity Look

Okay sooo I just wanted to highlight some of my fave shows from NYFW. You’ll definitely want to check out these brands! Let’s jump right in 😉 Galtiscopio I think that Galtiscopio will always have a special place in my heart because it was my very first NYFW show. And it was AWESOME. So much glitz and glam. The pieces were stunning. It was a super high energy show right off the bat and they even had entrainment! The pieces were stunning and I was super impressed. I’ll definitely want to attend the next Galtiscopio show! Katie Gallagher This wasn’t your traditional runway show. The models stood and sometimes rotated showing off the collection. It was a cool show, beautiful pieces. The only downside was that you were standing in a mob of people so it was kind of hard to see. Cindy Monteiro This designer was only 26 and freaking adorable. Her line was more of a resort line with a lot of light, natural colors and burlap. It reminded me of some sort …

How to go to NYFW

Okay, so how the heck do you get into NYFW? Well, that’s the million dollar question isn’t it! It’s actually a lot more simple than you’d expect. It’s a ton of prep work, don’t get me wrong, but it’s totally doable! So, the magical equation? Research. Who are you interested in seeing? Why? Take a look at the schedule and prioritize where you want to go. Find the designers that pique your interest. Bada bing, bada boom. Reach out. This is what is the most time consuming. You’ll need to do a lot of research to find the right contacts that will be able to get you into the shows that you want to see. For me, this took hours and hours of Googling. But it’s a necessary evil to get in! Once you have the appropriate contacts, email away! Be clear on what you’re offering them and make sure that you deliver! Plan, plan, plan. I admittedly started planning a little late this year, but everything worked out and I had an amazing time. …

Daily Look Review

Okay peeps. I’ve partnered with DailyLook for this post and I just want to give some mild disclaimers before I get into the nitty gritty 😉 This was the very first subscription based box that I’ve tried where a stylist compiles a few looks and sends them your way. I’ve always been a little intrigued, so I was actually really excited to try out Daily Look. My experience wasn’t quite what I had imaged… BUT I recognize that I am probably pickier than their average customer. I love fashion, I research fashion, and I realized even more that I actually really enjoy picking out my own clothes. So, keep that in mind. Here’s how it works: First, they have you fill out a profile of what you’d consider your style. You can link your Pinterest, you rate looks, you can provide links to your favorite fashion bloggers… It’s honestly kinda of long, but I thought it was cool. Seemed to me that they are really trying to be thorough which I appreciate. Then the stylist …

Fall Faves w/ Banana Republic

Fall is upon us! I used my seat heaters in my car for the first time over the weekend and I have to admit, it was kind of depressing… I’m okay with summer being over, but Utah doesn’t get much of a fall. It’s basically straight to winter for us which is SO SAD. Fall is my very favorite season. Maybe I need to move somewhere where it actually exists… Anyway, for this post I’ve teamed up with Banana Republic (yaaaay!) to bring you some amazing fall-must haves. It’s been a real struggle for me to find things that work with my growing belly. Most things make me feel like a giant blob, so yeah– #nothankyou. So, I decided to go for some of their fab accessories. The freaking most adorable fall accessories you’ve ever seen. K I’m really trying not to get too excited here… First, this gorgeous ascot scarf. Okay, like seriously gimme all of the ascot scarves. I love them. They are such a great throwback piece. So classy! This particular one …

Fall Specs

I was really excited to be a part of Zenni Optical’s Fall Fashion campaign because I’ve had a few pairs of glasses from them and the quality is great. This time I’ve partnered with them to show you three different fall looks that were made for sunnies & glasses! The first look is a comfy, cozy stay-at-home kind of look with these classic readers. I absolutely love the clear frames. They go with anything! And can I get an amen for this knit cardigan? It’s just too good! This look is a fab to casual kind of look that features one of Zenni’s more retro shade shapes. Perfect for your everyday. And this embroidered ruffle top is a fun one! I’ve also seen it worn as a dress 😉 My last look, and probably my favorite, features these aviator shades from Zenni. I LOVE THEM. The shape and size are perfect. They are exactly what I’ve been looking for! And they pair perfectly with this military jacket. There are so many killer military jackets out …

Summer to Fall Transition with Filly Flair

Fall is my favorite season— No doubt. The changing of the leaves and the cool air… There’s really nothing else like it! It can be a bit of a struggle however, to turn your summer faves into inspiring outfits for the Fall. That’s why I’ve teamed up with Filly Flair to bring you three simple ways to style your favorite summer pieces for the coming Fall weather. I’ve styled this pinstriped wrap top with an oversized duster jacket to keep those arms warm! Tops with this kind of detail are so fun in the summer, but then it starts to get a tinge colder and you start to feel like you can’t quite make it outside without another layer… No need to fret! Don’t feel like you need to go immediately to thick knitted sweaters once Summer is coming to an end. A lightweight layer will do just the trick! I’ve linked a few similar jackets, all fairly lightweight.   Who doesn’t love a plain white basic? The possibilities are near endless when it comes …
