A Winning Combo : Classic, Feminine & Sophisticated

Over the weekend, my mom, sister and I stayed at The Grand America hotel for a little girls weekend away. We started off the evening by having cocktails in the room and then headed downstairs to grab a drink and listen to some of the jazz music playing in the lobby. After that, we headed to dinner at one of my favorite spots, White Horse. We had the most delicious Croque Madame (which is pretty much a high-end ham and grilled cheese) and I have to admit, I am craving it again while writing this post haha. To end the night, we grabbed an after-dinner cocktail at Under Current and then headed back to the room for some much needed beauty rest.

After a night of dining ourselves, we ended up at the outdoor pool all Sunday afternoon! It was the perfect way to relax over the weekend and spend some quality time with my family while the weather is still warm out.

Since we were doing so many activities throughout the weekend, it forced me to pack quite the overnight bag of going-out outfits, cover-ups and swimsuits. Although I pulled out some of my favorite pieces that I own right now (like this off the shoulder jumper featured above), looking around at the hotel guests both in the lobby and at the pool, it made me really want to step up my wardrobe game! The entire hotel was filled with women in beautiful fabrics, chic bathing suits and lace outfits for days. Ever since the weekend ended, I have been looking for new pieces to add to my closet that are feminine, classic and unique that can help spice up my typical ensemble. After looking at some of the current  Zimmerman collection, I know that their line is everything I want to accomplish my dream sophisticated look. They have some of the most beautiful detailed pieces, that are still subtle, but are truly showstopping.

While the summer months are coming to an end, so I don’t want to invest in anymore summer pieces, I think I am going to start looking for some long-sleeved tops and dress that I can start transitioning into my fall looks. Because hey, fall is my favorite season, and I need to look on point right! 😉

Trend Spin Linkup – FUN SLEEVES

THE CANVAS – 
Sweater : Zara (love THIS & THIS) ~ Pants : Old Navy ~
Shoes : Target (old, similar here) ~ Sunglasses : Ray Ban ~
Earrings : Bauble Bar ~ Umbrella : Target (want THIS one)

Good morning…I hope everyone is having a great Tuesday and thanks for stopping by today’s Trend Spin Linkup!

Today’s trend is FUN SLEEVES!

So while I do have some tops with some VERY dramatic sleeves, I decided to showcase the simple details of one of my favorite sweaters from Zara. While it is no longer available, I did link to some other great finds. I love the simple pearl details and the small ruffle that helps make this a great transition piece from day to night.

Next week’s trend is RED, WHITE & BLUE!

While I mainly wear this color combo in July, I think it is such a great color combo to wear all summer long! I am a die hard patriotic person, so anytime I can wear the colors of our country, I will!

Since I went to The Grand America this weekend, I decided to pull out some poolside attire for the theme. Make sure to check back next week for details!

Trend Spin Linkup – FAVORITE ACCESSORIES

THE CANVAS – 
Blazer : H&M (old, similar here) ~ Shirt : old, J.Crew version here ~
Jeans : Old Navy ~ Shoes : Zara (similar) ~ Purse : Chanel ~
Earrings : Bauble Bar ~ Necklace : Lulu’s

Good morning…I hope everyone is having a great Tuesday and thanks for stopping by today’s Trend Spin Linkup!

Today’s trend is FAVORITE ACCESSORIES!

So this week I actually created my entire look around my earrings! These are some of my favorite statement pieces that really command an entire outfit. Since they are so bold, I tried to keep my clothing quite simple, yet chic.

On a side note, my mom and I got to enjoy some bubbly last week before going to The Book of Mormon at the Eccles Broadway Theater! Although it can be a little controversial, I absolutely loved it, and growing up in the Utah culture, it made it that much better.

Next week’s trend is FUN SLEEVES!

Sleeves are all the rage right now. From long and flowing, to dramatic bell, to simple details, they are all over the runway and hitting the stores rapidly. What is your favorite sleeve trend? Make sure to show us next week!

Good morning…I hope everyone is having a great Tuesday and thanks for stopping by today’s Trend Spin Linkup!

Today’s trend is SUMMER PRINTS & PATTERNS!

Although I love tropical and floral prints for summer, my go-to print has to be stripes! It has such a nautical feel to it and always makes me feel like a have a preppy and fresh vibe.

I absolutely love accessories. I truly think they can make or break your entire outfit. While I have gone more simple lately with my accessories, I still think you can make a statement through simplicity!

Excited to see what you all linkup next week.
