In case you couldn’t tell from the complete change of landscape on my Instagram account, I’m currently spending a couple of weeks in Salt Lake City with my parents! Because of Good Friday and the long weekend, I’m considering this my spring break, so I’ve been spending time working during the day and exploring the city during my off time.
This is what I wore during my first full day here in SLC: my go-to anorak, a fun leopard short-sleeved sweatshirt (that I haven’t worn since fall) and studded flats. The perfect outfit for running around the city and eating at this place (breakfast for dinner!).
We’re heading down to southern Utah to explore Bryce Canyon and Zion during the long weekend, so I’ll be back with new posts next Tuesday! Stay tuned to my Instagram, Facebook and Twitter accounts to keep up with my adventures!
Kimono: Target | T-Shirt: Gap | Denim: Elle | Flats: Target | Bag: Thrifted | Necklace: Borrowed from Liz
I must admit that I’m not normally a kimono/fringe type of gal. For the most part, I’ve always left that up to people who are much more carefree than I am (whereas I will almost always prefer a structured jacket). But this kimono spoke to me, and it just so happened to go perfectly with what I was already wearing last week. It was a true match made in Target heaven.
(P.S. If you’re looking to buy your own $20 kimono from Target, I’d recommend sizing down.)
I love the feeling of having used a product up in its entirety, whether it’s wearing a pair of boots until the sole begins to tear away from the leather or finishing up that bottle of shower gel that you’ve had forever. There’s something satisfying about knowing you got your money’s worth out of a product.
Here are a few beauty products I’ve recently used up, and rather than throw them away immediately, I thought I’d share with you a few quick thoughts on how they stacked up and if I’d repurchase them again or not.
- Eyeko Black Magic Mascara: Volumizing and long-lasting, this mascara is definitely one I’d repurchase. It’s a bit of a pain to take off, even with a makeup remover, but to me, that’s the mark of a good mascara.
- Laura Mercier Foundation Primer: This primer was particularly watery — not very silicone-like, which is what I prefer. I didn’t notice much of a difference in the way my foundation applied. I’d save my money for a different primer.
- NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer: You’ve heard me rave about this concealer before. It’s the best for undereye and blemishes. I’ve already repurchased and am using my second tube.
- Batiste Dry Shampoo: Hands down, this stuff is the best dry shampoo I’ve ever tried. I bought the trial pack with three mini canisters of the product, so I’m still working my way through the other two. However, when those two are done, I’m going to buy another can.

Hello from beautiful Salt Lake City! Liz and I spent Saturday driving the 14 hours from Omaha to SLC. The landscape here is gorgeous right now — everything is in bloom, and spring is in full force.
Starting the Monday off with colored leather, which is a trend I never thought I’d be one to take part in. But when paired with colors in the same family and a pop of print, I think the trend is just right.
As I mentioned earlier this week, I had the opportunity to shop the Peter Som for Kohl’s collection — and shop I did! I splurged on this gorgeous maxi dress, which is surprisingly flattering on. The weather we’ve been having here in Omaha is almost perfect maxi dress season, but seeing as how I’m probably a few weeks out still from being able to wear this dress, I thought I’d play virtual dress up and show you how I’d style this maxi dress for day and night. Happy weekend!
