Spring’s ups and downs

Sometimes you think your locale is the only place that has spring-weather mood swings, but if Salt Lake has anything to say, it’s reminding me that Omaha is not the only city with crazy weather. From sunny and in the 80s one day to windy, rainy and nearly snowy the next, this weather has thrown me for a loop. On a recent sunny day here in SLC, I pulled out this Anthropologie top I bought on super clearance in late winter and even — gasp! — sandals for the first time this year! 

Exploring Bryce Canyon


This past weekend, I headed out the door with my parents and bestie and drove to Southern Utah for four days to explore a couple of the national parks. That meant very limited access to internet, so I took the opportunity to work ahead and take a few vacation days. I work in social media, and it’s the first time in almost two years that I’ve unplugged completely for that length of time without doing a little work each day. I kept up only with my personal accounts, and after four days of being (mostly) unplugged and not even turning on my computer, I felt refreshed and ready to tackle this week. When was the last time YOU unplugged?

Up first, we spent the first two days in Bryce Canyon. Despite the cool temps the first day, we managed to drive through the park and hit all of the popular points of the park. The second day was spent hiking a fairly strenuous but breathtaking path through the orange hoodoos (the spires) on the canyon ground. Keep scrolling for more pics (thanks to Liz for letting me use these), as well as to find out what I wore (hiking is fairly unglamorous).


I’m wearing an old college T-shirt, a Lands’ End polar fleece zip-up (borrowed from my mom), compression pants from Old Navy (love Old Navy’s athletic wear), and Nike tennis shoes from Nordstrom Rack (similar).

Happy Monday! Oh, wait … it’s Tuesday. My four-day weekend/vacation has really set me up for a confusing week, but it was well worth it. Stay tuned later this week for more pics from my trip to Southern Utah to visit a few of the national parks.

As far as my outfit goes, I know I can always count on some shopping during a trip to Utah to spruce up my wardrobe. This top from Macy’s was less than $10, and it makes me want to hop on a bike and take a ride around the city. (I wish I had room in my apartment for a bike — here’s hoping it happens one day! A fold-up bike is on my wish list at the moment.) 

Day one in SLC

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.)
