Gray Turtleneck + Brown Skirt + OTK Boots

Guys, it snowed yesterday. And when I say it snowed, I mean is S N O W E D. Hard. We probably got at least 6 inches downtown (I heard more in the northern parts of the city). It's so crazy to get such a big snow storm so early in the season. I can only imagine how hard this winter is going to be and I am NOT here for it. 

Anywho...I asked a lot of you on Instagram yesterday if you had heard about the Enneagram. A lot of you know your number, and a lot of you asked for more info. I had hoped to put a full post up on it this morning, but I want to give it some more time, so I hope to have something up next week. Stay tuned!

You might have also heard me mention on Instagram that I had to go shoot a skirt in the snow. Well...here you go. Aside from looking completely crazy to passerbys, it really wasn't too bad.  We jumped out, got some picks, and then jumped back into our seat heated car. Piece of cake.
I'm so glad ended up shooting though, because I love the way this shoot turned out. Shorts in snow and all. It doesn't hurt that I am completely obsessed with this outfit! I'm just praying it's warm enough here on Thanksgiving day, because I think I'm going to have to wear this now (instead of this) if it is. Wish me luck.
This gray turtleneck, brown skirt and OTK boots is the perfect fall outfit if you ask me. I love the combination of warm neutrals here. (In case you didn't know, I live for neutrals.) I'm also super into skirts and sweaters together, and this one tops them all, if you ask me.
This gray turtleneck is the SOFTEST ever! I am wearing a small here, but wish I would have sized up to a medium for a more oversized fit. It's sold out in gray, but stay on the lookout for restocks. It also comes in several other colors here. The brown skirt is actually a skort. (Which came as a surprise to me, only because I didn't read the product description.) The brown sold out yesterday, but they have it in black here. I sized up to a medium and it fit perfectly! I paired it all with my favorite OTK Stuart Weitzman dupes - that are currently on sale for under $100!

I'm working on a ton of Holiday content. Gift Guides, Holiday Dresses, Christmas Jammies and more. If there is anything specific you want to see, be sure to let me know!

The 6 Best Ponchos + Wraps To Wear Now

I love a good poncho wrap. It's an essential piece for any wardrobe, as it goes with just about anything and can be thrown for a chic added touch, in a pinch. I'm also a huge fan of wraps when it comes to managing your office climate. Is it hot...is it cold? Make up your mind office climate control gods. 

I'm also a huge fan of wraps for planes, and basically anywhere else where the temperature can change rapidly. You really can't go wrong with this chic and versatile piece.
Ponchos/wraps also make great gifts for the holidays, because they are usually one size fits all and who doesn't love them?! Giving the gift of cozy is always a win-win, if you ask me. 

5 Best Ponchos and Wraps To Wear Now

I'm kind of living for this soft/plush wrap from Barefoot Dreams. If you are not familiar with the brand, they are known for being the softest in the biz! I can totally see this being a great gift for mom, or almost any woman in your life.


Pictured above, this wrap is a trusty and chic little number at an incredible price. If you are looking for an incredible versatile wrap for fall, this is it.


This plaid poncho is great for the fall loving babe. It's black and white, so it will go with just about everything too. 


This wrap from Banana Republic is a little bit of an investment, but Banana Republic tends to have pieces that stand the test of time, so it would be a worthy investment. 


I'm super into red - especially around the holidays. I feel like this wrap would be so great over a LBD or a chic pair of white trousers and a turtleneck.


I feel like this one needs no explanation. I mean look at it. Probably the best poncho for fall I've seen. *adds to cart*


Easy Thanksgiving Outfit: Brown Sweater + Black Jeans

Well now that Halloween is over we can all focus on the more important Holidays, like Thanksgiving and Christmas! Aside from summer, this is most definitely my favorite time of year. My parents always did such a great job of making this season super special for me as a kid, and it's something I cherish today, as an adult. I'm a sucker for sentiment and nostalgia, and this season is full of both.
Black Jeans Brown Sweater Brown Booties
I know so many bust out the Christmas decor and music as soon as the clock turns 12 on November 1, but my mom always had a rule that we had to wait through Thanksgiving to celebrate anything Christmas, and I keep that tradition today. (Ok, ok...perhaps there's the occasional Christmas song that creeps into my car before Thanksgiving, but that's it!)

Speaking of Thanksgiving, I see this outfit working so perfectly for it! Thanksgivings are usually really long days for us, since we start with family lunch and then roll into the evening with a friendly battle of boys vs girls Pictionary. I crave to be comfy due to the length of the day, but also...hello turkey and pie. Comfy jeans are a must, and an oversized sweater never hurt either. ;)
What To Wear On Thanksgiving
 I love the combo of black and brown for fall, and this brown sweater is going to be in heavy rotation! It's oversize enough to go great over my favorite leather leggings - which are always a great way to take a regular jeans/sweater look to the next level. The jeans I'm wearing here have been my tried and true for over 4 years! They are currently only available in the crop version - which I have heard is perfect for petite gals. 100% worth the investment, as you'll wear them all the time and they fit like a glove, without being too tight/restricting. The non-holey version is currently available too.

I recently added these brown booties to my closet from good ol Tarjay. They are under $30 so definiltey snag them while you can!

Happy Friday! 

The Brown Palace: The Best Luxury Hotel in Denver

If you're a Colorado local, you've heard of The Brown Palace, Denver's most iconic and historical luxury hotel. You may have had brunch at Ellyngton's or afternoon tea in the hotel lobby to with your girlfriends. I know I have. But what you may not know is the rich history that The Brown Palace represents, and the extraordinary service it's provided for over 120 years.
The Brown Palace does timeless luxury like no other. Upon arrival, the bellman warmly welcomes you, then shows you to your room - opening your drapes, turning on the lights, and prepping you for the rest of your luxurious stay. 

We had a full itinerary at the hotel, as we tried the best of what "The Grand Dame" had to offer.

I started our stay with a trip to the spa - which offered an indulgent experience, as you could assume.
After my massage, I met the hubs for champs and high tea, where we snack on mini sandwiches, scones and decadent dessert - all while we sipped on Veuve and our teas of choice.  If you've never had high tea at The Brown Palace, it's an absolute must! I went last year with my girlfriends for around Christmas and it was so magical! (Reservations book up fast around this time, so if you're thinking that sounds like something you want to do, definitely call and reserve a spot now!)
After tea, we got to do a private tour with the hotel historian, and since it's Halloween season, the history tour had a spooky spin, as we learned about the ghost sightings and unexplained experiences that have happened at the hotel. Let me just say, that I am NOT into the supernatural. It totally freaks me out! I was super nervous about the tour, for that reason, but it ended up being so interesting and I just adored the hotel historian, Debra. If you are in the area, I highly suggest checking this out!

We rounded off the day with dinner at The Palace Arms, where we enjoyed a 6-course tasting menu. We didn't want to drink too much that night, so the restaurant manager/sommelier was so kind and custom paired each of our courses with small glasses of wine so that we could enjoy the combination of flavors without overdoing it.

The next morning, we had brunch at Ellyngtons, which is a brunch to beat all brunches if you've never been! Brandon and I actually went a few years ago, on our first anniversary, so it was fun to go back and reminisce on how much we have grown and changed since those 4 years ago.
The entire experience at The Brown Palace can't be beat! It's by far the best luxury hotel in Denver, if you ask me. If you're in the area, be sure to book brunch or tea there, for your next special occasion - you won't regret it! And, if you're a history buff looking for a fancy schmancy place to stay on your next trip to Denver, you'll love staying here for sure.

Instagram Outfit Roundup

The blog's been a little quieter than usual, but I've been working on some exciting stuff behind the scenes that I can't wait to share with you! In the meantime, you know you can always find me on Instagram sharing my outfits and daily musings.

Here's a round up of some of my recent outfit posts, that haven't quite made it to the blog.

This rust colored poncho is so incredibly perfect for fall. Wear it with jeans or dress it up a little with leather leggings. These leather leggings hold it ALL in, and make you look a full size smaller. They are a total must if you don't already have them! I also recently snagged these white leather booties - they are a steal at under $40 and so comfy! (They come in cognac and black, too.)


Whether you want to do a nod to the seventies, or to Lady Gaga in A Star is Born, this dress and otk boot look, is a dream. These booties come in tan, black and gray and are a steal at under $150. (I picked them up in black, too.)


I wore this black sweater dress to a recent company dinner in the mountains, and fell in love with the cozy fit. I love a good sweater dress for fall/winter and this is a must to add to your closet if you do, too. It's under $50, comes in black and gray, and can be paired with you favorite over-the-knee boots, booties, or even worn over jeans with sneakers for a more casual vibe.


If you are looking for a cozy pullover for fall, look no further than this teddy bear pullover. It comes in 4 colors and is the cutest! (Definitely size one to two sizes up.) Psst...if you are wondering about the troll, you can find him on Wellington Trail in Breckenridge. Hurry though, I hear the neighbors want him to be taken down!

This cozy cardigan is probably one of my favorite pieces for fall! It's the softest and so versatile! It's great to wear over your favorite camis or layered over dresses to transition them to fall. Linking the real and knock off versions of this Gucci belt below.


Another fall favorite is this colorblock cardigan from Madewell. The colors are so dreamy for fall and go with everything! Also, if you don't have a pair of black pointed mules, I wear these at least 3 times a week, and can't recommend enough.




The fall leaves may be gone, but this cute thermal sweater is still around. Love the cute and cozy waffle print of this thermal. Such a great fall basic!


Hope you guys enjoyed this roundup, and don't forget, you can always see what I'm up to over on Instagram, when things get a little quiet on these parts. Do you have any fun weekend plans? Brandon and I are working around the house and may take a trip up to Ikea. (That may be the most adult sentence I have ever written!) Have a great weekend, everyone!

Best Boots and Booties For Fall - Under $50

Went on a bootie binge on Monday (doesn't everyone do that on Monday?) and decided to do a round up here for you guys. I got some SERIOUS steals at good ol Tarjay, where they are having BOGO 50% off. On top of that, I found a pair of white heeled booties on clearance for $10. I walked out of there with 3 pairs for $57 and have never felt so alive!!

I have been planning on doing a bootie round up for a while now, featuring all the best booties I've seen for Fall, but honestly... Target is killing the game right now and has a lot of the designer styles for super cheap, so...I decided to share all of them. FYI...I bought four of the pairs on this list. OOPS!

These Are The Best Boots and Booties for Fall Under $50!
Best Booties and Boots for Fall Under $50


White Booties - These are just as dreamy in person, as they look online and SO comfortable. The white is more of a cream, and can be worn with jeans, leather, and skirts for fall. Best of all, they are only $34.99, which is such a steal for the quality! Fit is TTS and also come in other colors.

Scrunch Boot - It's like...are we really moving away from OTK boots or what? These scrunch boots are definitely all the rage this season. I have to admit, I was reluctant to jump on board, but I am officially here for it. I've seen styles ranging with the $150-$200 range, but these are under $40. I typically wear a 9.5-10 and I purchased the 10 in these, at the 9.5's were too tight. If you're in between sizes, size up. They come in 3 colors.

Taupe Western Bootie - The western trend is all the rage for fall 2018, and these booties fit the bill to keep you on trend without breaking the budget. I didn't buy these (the jury is still out for me on if I'll partake in the trend), but these are a super cute option if you're into it.

Cut Out Cognac Bootie - You would never believe by looking at them, but these babies are only $25! (Say what?) They fit TTS despite online reviews, but I have a pretty slender foot. I wore them the only night, and they did kind of run the top of my foot. I'll have to figure out how to prevent that in the future (have any tips?), but for $25...totally worth it.

Hiker Boot - Love the hiker boot trend that has taken the fashion world by storm, but can live without the Marc Fisher price tag? Me too. Don't get me wrong, I love me some Marc Fisher, but when I can find a knock off for a fraction of the price...I'm in! When I found these faux lined hiker boot knock offs, I squealed a little. I mean...under $40? Sign me up! Target has a super black and gray style here, too.

Remember, Target has buy one get one 50% off right now, so you could stock up on all your fall/winter boots for super cheap right now. I mean...they are practically giving stuff away!

Did you guys like this post? Would you like me to do another bootie round up with some of my favorite styles at Nordstrom? Let me know in the comments below!

Easy To Recreate Fall Work Outfit - With Items You Probably Already Own

It’s true. I have a shopping problem. (Surprise, surprise.) But honestly, I’ve really seen the value in investing in classic and interchangeable basics, lately. Making sure I have pieces that I can easily mix and match, and wear time and time again. More-so, I have loved re-evaluating my closet and shedding the items I really don’t want or need, as well as recreating outfits from pieces I love.

This is one of those outfits. 
Easy To Recreate Work Outfit
I’m still working on creating my capsule wardrobe post for you guys. (It’s a ton of work!) But I can tell you that every closet needs these three items: black work pants that you love, a good chambray shirt, and an oversized blazer.

These three items can be mixed and matched in more ways than I could even think up. But this chic office look, might be my favorite. It says, “Hi. I’m a professional. But wanna grab a glass of wine after 5?” Haha OK, I don’t know if it says that. But whatev. Either way, it’s an easy to recreate work outfit with items you probably already have in your closet.
