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!
Despite the fact that I don’t work in a professional setting (i.e. your typical office/cubical), I still like to get dressed up in heels a few times a week. This particular outfit came about because the jeans and blouse were hanging next to each other. Perfecto! I love it when that happens.
Sweater: Loft (similar and on sale) | Denim: Elle (similar) | Flats: JC Penney (similar) | Bag: Brahmin (c/o Vogue) | Scarf: TJ Maxx (similar [the only one I could find online]) | Sunglasses: Kenneth Cole via TJ Maxx (similar) | Rings/Bracelets: Forever 21 | Nails: Essie’s Hide and Go Chic | Lips: Laura Mercier in Rose
I love cheeky things (pun intended), so when this scarf was sitting in my local TJ Maxx just waiting to be picked up — on clearance, no less — I couldn’t wait to wear it. I haven’t been wearing many scarves lately, but the lip print on this one was too fun to ignore!
As I’ve mentioned before, spring is the trickiest season in terms of getting dressed every day. For me, denim is still my go-to (as it has been all winter), but I begin incorporating light colors and lightweight fabrics into my daily outfits. This jacket from Nordstrom was a little intimidating at first due to the crazy volume at the hips, but the key is to keep everything else streamlined and draw attention away from the volume with a pattern and a pop of color in a statement necklace. Seriously, I’ve worn this outfit at least once a week since we started getting slightly warmer weather. When it works, you just go with it!
Bring on Monday! Is it just me, or did this weekend fly by? I wore this outfit yesterday while gallivanting about town; after church, friends and I headed out for brunch, some exploring and a little shopping. All in all a lovely weekend!
Let’s talk about this jacket: the mix of print and textures is right up my alley. It’s the perfect spring jacket, ideal to throw over any T-shirt with flats for a casual Saturday morning or even dressed up with heels and trousers for a day at the office.
