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.
Wow. Is anyone else shocked by how quickly the weekend flew by? My weekend was packed: taxes (four hours and five-plus phone calls to my financial-planning dad), shopping, room/office rearranging, a Sephora event, cronuts, a walk to get frozen yogurt, a walk around a local lake/park, making a giant pot of vegetable stew, a flat tire (Liz’s second flat tire this year), and a low-key concert. Needless to say, it was a very busy weekend but a very fulfilling one.
P.S. When it comes to weekend wear, I’m all about denim and stripes. This cropped trench? I bought it a few years ago at F21 and it has worn beautifully — proof that if you’re picky about what you buy at the trendier stores, they can last you a long time. (I couldn’t find a F21 cropped trench online, but here’s a fun trench they’re selling in leopard.)
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.

Between parade-watching and brunch al fresco on Saturday, the only viable option for shoes was flats. I picked up these flats a few weeks ago (along with these) and was happy for the chance to be able to wear them on such a beautiful and perfect-weather morning. Sometimes only flats will do, you know?
So tell me: Are you a flats-only type of girl? A heels-only type of girl? Or a little of both?
The outfits I feel most “me” in always involve pieces that I turn to season after season. This leopard blouse is one that I’ve had for years, and despite many closet clean-out sessions, it has made the cut every time. When it’s a print you love in a fit that’s flattering … well, you just don’t give it up that easily.
What pieces in your closet make you feel like “you”?
