The Perfect Spring Dress

Dress (Medium) | Similar Boots

Quick, get online at the Loft and order this dress! It is perfect for spring with the long sleeves and light weight fabric. I love the button details in the front with the tie around the waist and ruffle details at the shoulder. This dress is perfect for our crisp spring weather here in Colorado. I can see myself wearing this well into the summer and fall with these great transitional colors.

The best part of this dress is that it is only around $45 (with all sizes still available) and fits true to size.

This past weekend G and I checked out the free Saturday at the Denver Art Museum. It was so cool to be able to experience this museum for free over the weekend. They have a free day every first Saturday of the month. It is free to view all of the exhibits except for the exhibitions which currently is Degas ($24 extra) We decided to get there about an hour before it closed and it was still pretty busy.

They have a couple of really cool collections right now including Drawn to Glamour with several fashion illustrations and clothing displays. They also have Stampede where they showcase animals in art which was really cool as well.

I highly recommend checking out the first free Saturday at the art museum if you have the chance.

Burberry Ashurst Jacket

7583905600_IMG_1213

With spring finally making its debut I thought it would be the perfect time to review my Burberry jacket. Since it is a light jacket I find myself reaching for it a lot more during these brisk spring mornings.

I had this jacket on my wish list for a while and it wasn’t until I found it on sale and had gift cards that I finally made the purchase. It was literally like the trifecta of shopping and I just couldn’t not get it, however this jacket is a huge investment.

I chose this lighter canvas color because I thought it was a good neutral that would go with everything and I already had a black leather jacket. I love this color and I am pretty careful with it so I haven’t had any issues with it showing dirt or having any stains.

I stayed true to size with the medium and it does fit me well and I am able to button it all the way up with some room to spare. The only issue I have is the boxy fit of it. The material is pretty stiff so it keeps its boxy shape, which for me is not that flattering. The sleeves are also a little short on me. While I could unroll the sleeves I really like the pop of plaid that it has when cuffed so I leave it as is and just ignore the shorter length.

Like I said this jacket is defiantly an investment piece, so if you were like me and just had to have it, then I would say wait for one of Nordstrom’s big sales as I have seen it marked down during that time. I would also recommend trying on a lot of different styles (which I failed to do) to see what style fits you best. This jacket is not made for all seasons and can really only be worn in those warmer spring or fall days so it is not the most versatile, however it is a classic piece that I know I will have for years to come.

Men’s Allbirds Review

IMG_4780

G is taking over today to share his review of the Allbirds. These shoes have really blown up lately. I see them all over my office from the CEO to the finance guy. I gifted these to G for Christmas and he was stoked! He needed a new pair of casual athletic shoes for the weekend and these have fit the bill. So here is G’s official review:

What do you like best about them?

They are really comfortable. It’s like a comfy sweater for my foot! They are also lightweight and do not take up as much space in a suitcase as other shoes which helps for packing if you travel. They are also pretty versatile and you can dress them up or down due to the clean simple style of them.

Are their any cons or areas for improvement? 

They collect dog fur which isn’t that big of a deal and you can easily wipe it off. Other than that there is nothing wrong with them or anything that I would want to change.

Would you recommend them? 

Ya I would but I would not recommend wearing the slip on version out of the house.

I really like these shoes and from a women’s perspective I think that they look great on men of all ages. They also came out with a new style called Tree Runners which would be perfect for summer.

Spring Jumpsuit

IMG_4770

Shoes | Similar Jacket 

I am a jumpsuit lover! I love how easy and put together they make you look. I don’t know why people are so worried about the bathroom situation in jumpsuits? I mean you are alone in the bathroom stall anyways or just hold it! You have to make sacrifices for fashion people!

Anyways I am pretty sure this is supposed to worn to bed but honestly I don’t care. The fabric is super soft (like literally so soft) and the color is so versatile. I wore it on Sunday when we walked to brunch (at Stowaway again!) and ran some errands. It is also ideal for travel days. I wore it on my way to San Diego and it was so cozy for the flight. They sadly don’t have it online anymore but they have a shorts version. I would get a medium in the shorts but I sized down to a small in the pants. Old Navy also has some really cute jumpsuits right now too.

San Diego | Belching Beaver Brewery

Top (size down) | Shoes (true to size)

Happy Monday! This past weekend G and I made a weekend trip to San Diego and I wanted to recap my favorite outfit and brewery that we visited. My sister and I made a quick stop over at Old Navy where I spotted these camo pants. I have been on the hunt for a good pair of camo pants and had a hard time finding anything. I went into the dressing room with little confidence that these would work, but to my surprise they surpassed my expectations! They fit like a glove in my usual size 6. They have a little bit of a stretch and hit right at my ankle. I highly recommend these pants and they are currently on sale!

In the afternoon we went over to Belching Beaver Brewery in Vista and had a pint of their Peanut Butter Milk Stout on Nitro. This beer was amazing! It literally tasted like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup in beer form. It is a must try if you visit. It is pretty heavy and rich so I would recommend getting a taster size or sharing a full pour with someone. They have lots of other beer as well so everyone is sure to find something. The inside was pretty crowded when we were there but the outside patio is really nice and even though it was raining they have lots of covered space and heaters.

Wine Wednesday | Infinite Monkey Theorem

IMG_4510.jpg

This week Wine Wednesday is about the Infinite Monkey Theorem Wine Bar in Rino. This place is literally walking distance from my house which means I am kicking myself for waiting 3 years to check it out! This is my face wondering why I have not checked this place out before!

This weekend we finally had some spring weather so G and I decided to go out on Friday night for a drink and dinner. We stopped into the IMT and were immediately asked by the bartender what we would like to drink. Their service was awesome! You can sample anything prior to ordering a full glass and they are super helpful in asking you questions to figure out what they think you might like best. G got the Cabernet Franc and I got the Sauvignon Blanc. Our bill was under $25 which is not too bad and on Monday’s they have all day happy hour!

IMG_4541.jpg

We both agreed that the atmosphere was super relaxed and the dark lighting made it feel really chill, not stuffy winery vibes here. Will the wine win any awards, probably not, but it is perfect for a low key night. I would highly recommend checking out this wine or the winery if you are in the mood for some wine. They also have a  food truck in case you get hungry.

Why have one when you can have two?! 🙂

For my outfit I kept it super casual, because A. That’s Denver and B. We were walking. Camo jacket that again I wore all weekend (similar one here), Jeans, t-shirt, shoes.
