ROCKER GLAM


sweater: Forever21 - old (similar here) || leather jacket: Forever21 - old (similar here) || necklace: H&M (similar here, and here) || liquid leggings: Topshop || booties: Aquatalia

Happy Monday love birds!

Confession time: Ever since I helped out a friend with a rocker-chic photo shoot a few weeks back, I can't stop sporting leathery looks! It really can't be healthy. I just love all things leather, especially now that fall is here.

On an unrelated note, last night I started planning out how I want my Christmas cards to look this year. What is wrong with me?! And since we're talking about holidays now, check back later this week for some fashionable Halloween costumes that you can actually wear in public, not just to trick-or-treat in!

So there you have it. An insider look into my scatter-brain. Love you guys!!

24 WARDROBE MUST-HAVES FOR FALL

YOU GUYS.

Fall is upon us!!!! Can I get a hell yeah?

It's so beautiful in Utah and it's making me all kinds of joyful. Fall is my favorite to dress for so I've picked out some of the CUTEST cold-weather essentials for you. This fall, I'm all about long coats, statement hats, and of course fabulous shoes. Long coats are essential because they look magnificent over everything; dresses, track pants, skinny jeans, skirts, etc. You name it.

I think it's wise to invest in a few pieces you absolutely love each season that you know you'll get amazing usage out of. So take a little peeksy below. Prepare to drool and squeal and hide your wallet.

My favorites are THIS coat, THIS hat, THIS beanie, THESE flats, and THESE boots.

TRĂˆS COOL


beanie: H&M (love this) || necklace: H&M - they have so much cute stuff right now! (similar here) || tee: ZARA (similar here) || pants: Joe's (similar here) || shoes: Vince || sunglasses: Tom Ford

Happy first day of fall! This is my first, official beanie post and it definitely won't be my last. (You've been warned.) I picked up this little cutie from H&M along with this statement collar necklace. It's quickly become one of my very favorites. On Sundays, my husband and puppy like to go to drives up our favorite canyon in Utah, which we happen to live minutes away from. It's crazy to think that so much beauty is pretty much in our backyard! I feel so blessed.

Since today is the first day of fall, I thought I'd put together a list of things I want to do this season. 

1. Reorganize my closet
2. Learn how to make my mother-in-law's homemade bread
3. Play in a pile of leaves
4. Take a cooking class with the husband
5. Try to like football
6. Visit an apple orchard
7. Host a Friendsgiving
8. Spend a weekend up in a cozy cabin
9. Make a new wreath for our front door
10. Learn a song with my husband

What do you think? Anything I'm missing? I'd love to hear if you have any fun, fall plans!

FALL WEATHER SWEATER DRESSES + DENIM JACKETS





dress: Loft (similar here) || jean jacket: MANGO (similar here, loving here) || sunglasses: Betsey Johnson (obsessing over these) || purse: Marc by Marc Jacobs || shoes: Vince || earrings: J. Crew || socks: ASOS

Isn't it funny how just when you think life starts to slow down, you realize a million and a one things are approaching? Now that my annoying cold has subsided, it's time to hit the ground running again! Jetting around to various things today. Hope you all have a productive Wednesday! xoxo

P.S. I'm growing out my hair right now so excuse the awkward in-between length that is crying out to either be five inches longer or five inches shorter.

AUTUMN ROMANCE STYLED WEDDING




Jake and I were fortunate enough to be a part of a beautiful styled wedding shoot. The Wondershop Series is a workshop hosted every three months by Jessie Alexis Photography and Lizy Bowden of Lizy's Lillies. These two exquisite ladies come together to create a beautiful styled shoot for photographers who want to enhance their craft. This particular shoot was inspired by autumn romance, filled with rich maroons and burgundies. The incorporation of figs, plums, and pomegranates were some of my favorite touches. Plus getting to hang out with a group of ultra-talented artists, wearing a designer wedding dress while loving on my handsome husband isn't half bad. ;)
