This is one of those occasions when a perfect outfit is made even more so thanks to the help of a POP of color.   I bought these pants at CAbi’s Shopping Event during The Scoop (check that out here) a little over a week ago.  It was love at first try on…


The green beaded Sutton necklace is my second (of three) Sutton necklaces–see the original here and here.  I LOVE this style of statement piece and that it can be worn 5 ways on it’s own and layered with other necklaces in an infinite number of ways (that I’m sure you will see here in the future).

This outfit is exactly as insanely comfortable as it is stylish and in the fall, I plan to throw on a cardigan/denim jacket and sneakers/boots.

So there ya go….my favorite outfit of recently and I will probably wear it a few times until every person I know in real life has seen it at least once.  Am I the only one who does this?

BeautiFALL Me Fall 2014 CAbi Outfit Ideas #CAbiScoop

This post may contain affiliate links. See my disclosure policy here.

On July 18th, I had the pleasure of attending my second CAbi Scoop event at the Colorado Convention Center.  In case you are unfamiliar, CAbi is a beautiful collection of women’s apparel created by Carol Anderson (formerly a designer for Nordstrom). Designed for real women who live real lives, the line includes an affordable mix of professional separates and casual everyday pieces that are refreshed twice yearly, in the Spring and Fall to keep on-trend.  CAbi (aka “Carol Anderson by invitation”) is a consultant-based fashion brand sold at private trunk shows by CAbi Girls.

The show was exciting and filled with the energy of the 3,500 CAbi consultants in attendance.  It was a glorious event and I left it feeling incredibly inspired for Fall 2014 as all of the outfits have the potential to help me navigate my life in style.  Check it out for yourself…

I could’ve easily worn any of the outfits in the BeautiFALL Me Fall 2014 collection and here are a few of my favorites.

One of the things I love most about CAbi designs is that they’re edgy yet feminine and completely wearable for a woman of any age (trust me, I saw it with my own eyes and it was a beautiful thing).

The Infinite Vest was likely named that because it’s a “must have” piece that can be worn infinite ways–you can see 5 of them here.  In case you were hesitant to try the leather legging look last fall, you’ve got another chance this fall with the Stevie Legging.  And, CAbi totally puts the girl styling into boyfriend jeans (which are still very much a thing).

I also love how the styling genius’ at CAbi paired the slim silhouette of skinny jeans (these and these) with flatteringly cut [bum covering] sweaters (here and here).

My First StitchFix Review – July 2014

The Hair I’ve ALWAYS Wanted Is Mine–and it can be yours too.

This, my friends, is the curly girl look that I’ve always wanted but never really had the patience to achieve with my natural hair. Nice huh? Ever since I started wearing wigs, I have felt more empowered and more like myself because at my core I live to constantly switch it up.  Not to mention…
