the unique angles of the human face
Those are the things that are currently my inspiration. Comment and share with me what your inspiration is.
This is the outfit I wore to church on Sunday. I am completely obsessed with this sweater!! It is the softest thing I've ever felt in my life! Every time I talked to someone they asked if they could feel it! They wanted to feel it almost as bad as I wanted to be in New York for fashion week last week. Oh well, maybe it will happen someday. For now I catch up on all the new trends by watching the shows online. I am able to see all of the new hair trends on the TRESsemme YouTube Channel. You can go watch the tutorial for this Side-Swept Bun that was shown at the Marissa Webb show here.

To celebrate Labor Day weekend my family went to our little home away from home in Idaho. I posted a video diary about it, click here to watch!! We love spending time at our cabin! I love how casual and relaxing it is. There is no service or wifi (gasp) so we are totally unplugged and forced to carry on a conversation without picking up the social media (just kidding, I promise we aren't that socially awkward). I love it! Now we are back, recharged and ready to get some work in!!
As of late I have been brainstorming some new content ideas for my blog as well as my social media platforms so if you have any requests or questions relating to fashion, beauty, hair, fitness, lifestyle or interior design that you would like to get in please leave a comment here or on any of my social media platforms. I love blogging for me personally but I especially love when I am able to help others or answer questions. Thanks for visiting my little corner of the internet!!
In Utah we are in that awkward stage between seasons where you don't know what to wear. You are freezing when you leave your house in the mornings but it warms up by noon. By 5:00 pm you are dying of heat but when the sun goes down it is back to freezing your buns off. I am in love with this dress because of the pattern play elements it has. I had to wear it one last time before the real fall weather came to town. Until then, wish me luck in this bipolar seasonal transition!

I love pencil skirts and they have been a staple in my closet since I was in the sixth grade. They are not a very versatile piece but being able to wear them so many different ways makes up for the fact that you can't wear them on every occasion. I love this skirt particular skirt. First, it was ridiculously inexpensive (thank heavens for Forever 21)!! These skirts are young and fun but can also be worn by women of any age!! Now granted in stores there are some short bodycon type skirts that can't be, but these trendy and classic skirts are long and can be worn by anyone of any age, shape or size! Check out my selection of inexpensive skirts below I found!
Another reason I love it is because of the beautifully vibrant cobalt color. An easy hack to make any pencil skirt combo look more creative and planned out is to switch up the traditional colors. Instead of wearing your typical black pencil skirt on the bottom with a colorful top, wear the color on bottom. This is such a simple outfit but I received so many compliments that I am just wanting to get more of these skirts to recreate the outfit!!
Tell me in the comments below what your favorite way to wear a pencil skirt is! Also, I would love to get any requests on how to style a particular article of clothing. You can comment here on my blog or on any of my social media platforms to send in your requests!!
