Good morning, friends! If you’ve been following along here for a while, you’ve probably noticed that I never miss out on snagging a few favorites every season from cabi, and when I find something of theirs that I love, I tend to wear it to death. I’m super excited to share a couple of pieces from their brand new collection, Penny Lane Lovely, that’s finally available today.
No surprise here, the new pieces are SO good, and this playsuit just may be my new fall uniform. I’ve styled it here super casual for a day of running errands or grabbing brunch with friends, and guys, these loafers are seriously so comfortable. Add a pair of heels and some fab accessories, and you’ve got a completely different look a la Sam from Style of Sam and Jo from Le Fab Chic, below. (Head over to their blogs to see more on how they styled the playsuit.)
If you’re a cabi girl like me, don’t miss out on this brand new batch of goodies because we all know, once a piece is gone, it’s really gone, girl. Hope everyone is having a great week!
By now I’ve shared favorite cabi pieces with you guys countless times over the years, and it’s for good reason: I freaking love this brand. It’s seriously an amazing company for women, run by women, supporting women, and what’s better than that? Every person I’ve met that is involved with the brand genuinely loves it. Plus, the collections are just really cute. Every single piece is so well-made and thought-out with some why didn’t I think of that details. The fabrics are always really great quality, and as an added bonus, most of the pieces travel really well. (As in, easy to pack and pretty wrinkle-free. Winner, winner.)
One of the questions that I get the most from you guys when I post something cabi is, How can I order that? So here’s a little reminder of how this whole things works. cabi is sold through independent Stylists, and no, I’m not one of them. (I’m telling you, I just really love wearing cabi.) If you’re interested in finding a Stylist in your area, just head over here. They’ll get you in contact with the gal in your town that can help you get your hands on the latest and greatest, easy peasy.
The Spring 2017 collection has been so dang cute, and on May 4th, the New Arrivals Two collection is hitting the site. And it is SO good. The little lace shorts and striped dress above were standout favorites for me, but I really could’ve picked out five more pieces. And now for the best news. Whether you’re a longtime cabi fan or a newbie who’d like to get her hands on the line, today I’ve got a giveaway for you.
Follow the prompts below to enter to win a head-to-toe look of your choice, courtesy of cabi. Even better? I’ll be choosing five (5!) winners on Thursday, April 27th, so don’t miss out! Good luck, friends!
In case you missed the, like, 475 photos and videos that I shared on my Instastory and Instagram, a couple of weeks ago I got to attend my second #cabiScoop, and it was just as bananas (in the best way possible) as my first. I’m telling you, with each new model that walks out in something new for spring, the crowd of enthusiastic cabi gals seriously goes WILD. It is such a fun event to be a part of, and I hope they keep inviting me back for the next 100 years.
This year’s Scoop may have even been a smidge more fun than last time because I got to catch up with one of my first blogger friends from years ago, Jen. She and I got to check out the shopping event during Scoop (that I missed last year due to traffic) where they sell past seasons’ collections at super steals. With my current legging uniform (all day, everyday), I couldn’t resist this oversized tee and cozy cardigan combo. I’m sure it’s a little blast from the past for the cabi gals out there because I don’t even know how far back these pieces are from, but they’re new to me and oh-so-comfy.
Obviously during this particular cabi Scoop, Spring is the thing, and I’m so excited about the new collection. It’s REALLY hard for me to even pick favorites, but I’d probably have to go with this killer blazer, the shirtdress I’ll wear a thousand times, or this long cardigan that’s probably way more versatile than you’d think. You guys know I love a good stripe, so I may have to throw this tee into the mix as well. Love. OH! And one last favorite – did I mention that this season they’ve come out with their first-ever shoes? It’s true. Two different styles, and I can’t decide which I love more. If you missed out on the fun, check out the fun recap video below and then head over to cabi to start planning that Spring wishlist.
If there’s one trend from 2016 that I fully embraced, it was the bomber jacket. Quilted, sequined, Pink Lady style, or in dress form, I had a real love for anything bomber style, and lucky for me, the trend isn’t going anywhere just yet. This little striped bomber is lightweight and perfect for transitioning to spring, and it comes in two more adorable prints (here and here).
But perhaps we’re a little early to be wearing spring, so for now I’m layering this little jacket with the cabi vest that I’ve worn a few thousand times. cabi has been a favorite of mine season after season, and I can’t wait to see the brand new Spring 2017 collection revealed this week at cabiScoop. This will be my second time attending the Scoop in San Diego, and it really is such a fun event. It’s a giant fashion show event packed with cabi stylists from all around the country. It has an amazing community feel of women supporting women and just genuine happiness. If you can’t make it to the Scoop, make sure you tune in online to see the Spring collection as it comes down the runway, and follow along on my Instagram story where I’ll be sharing as well. Hope everyone is having an amazing week so far!
Hey, girlfriends, anybody up for a little hump day cabi giveaway? Two whole months ago I gave you guys a little peek at a couple of my favorite things from cabi’s Fall 2016 collection, and finally, finally – fall is almost here. (Well, technically it’s here, but the fall weather seems to be a little delayed with this week’s SoCal heat wave.) Since the initial launch, I’ve fallen for so many more pieces like this long cardigan that I’m basically obsessed with for fall. Pair it with a dress (like this printed cabi number), skinny jeans, or comfy leggings to take this killer cardi anywhere, day or night. (Last week I actually needed a little outfit boost for dinner, so I paired with denim cutoffs, a tank, and leather mules for an easy transitional look.) Also loving this sweater pea coat and this beyond comfy layering piece that are both coming to the blog soon. If the first collection didn’t have enough goodness, cabi just added fourteen new arrivals yesterday so you can update that wishlist of yours. (And mine.) And while we’re on the topic of that wishlist, here comes the fun part. I’m teaming up with cabi to give one lucky reader $250 towards whatever your heart desires. So get the cardigan! Or don’t. It’s your prerogative, babes, but whatever you do, don’t miss out on entering this week’s cabi giveaway. Happy Wednesday, and good luck!
Over the past couple of years I’ve become a huge fan of cabi clothing because their stuff is just so well made. I’ve got a particular green jacket of theirs from about four years back that I still wear ALL the time. I look forward to every new season reveal, and this week, cabi’s fall collection has arrived. It’s packed with everything I’ve come to expect – a few great blouses, the best basic tees and tanks, a couple of versatile jackets, luxe sweaters, and a few denim pieces that I love. The Waterfront Shirt was the first piece that caught my eye and is probably my favorite denim shirt, like, ever. It’s SO soft with a little bit of stretch, and I love the neck-tie detailing – so cute. I couldn’t wait for fall, so I paired it with my favorite denim shorts for a denim on denim transitional look. These skinnies are also so good. They fit like a dream, and I can’t wait to wear the vest with everything this fall. Head over here and check out cabi’s fall collection for yourself, and stop by the cabi blog today where I’m featured along with a couple other blogger babes. Happy almost Friday, y’all!
Recently I got to accompany the cabi team to their annual #cabiScoop event in San Diego. It was basically the most fun runway show you can imagine with the entire crowd clapping, cheering and going nuts over each new runway look. It was the unveiling of cabi’s spring collection, and the audience was filled with cabi stylists who would be selling the pieces. The show and whole night were so much fun, and the spring collection is really good. So many great colors and prints, flattering cuts, and classic staples. This poncho is probably my favorite piece and is so versatile for spring. The boyfriend jeans are easy and comfortable, and the tee will definitely be overused these next few months. Check out the full collection here, and stay tuned for more pieces coming to the blog soon. Hope everyone has a great start to the week!
Happy Monday, lovelies. How was everyone’s weekend? Today I’m spilling the beans on one of my favorite brands season after season, cabi. Over the years I’ve worn quite a few cabi pieces, and it’s with good reason. The entire collection is meant to be mixed, matched, and worn a ton of different ways, and the quality is just so good. I’ve got favorite jackets and one particular blouse that I’ve worn for years now, and they still look brand new. cabi is sold through a community of female stylists (over 3500 of them currently), and although I’m not a cabi stylist, this week I’ll get to join them at their bi-annual “The Scoop” in San Diego. I’m so excited to check out their Spring 2016 collection at this year’s Scoop fashion show on Thursday and can’t wait to share it all with you guys on my Twitter and Instagram! So tune in this Thursday at 4 pm (PST), and in the meantime, check out the video below for a sneak peek. I’ve already got my eye on so. many. pieces.
Nothing screams “I’m ready for you, FALL!” quite like a sweater poncho paired with over-the-knee boots (and maybe an oversized faux fur clutch). Whether fall is ready to come out and play or not is a whole other story, but I just couldn’t wait to wear this little number. The poncho is uber soft and pairs so well with anything from leather shorts to jeans to fall’s denim skirt trend. It’s part of cabi’s newly launched fall collection, and y’all, there are SO many great pieces. (Check out the striped tee in yesterday’s post.) And the good news? I’ve teamed up with cabi to give one lucky reader $250 to spend on new fall threads. Check out the video below and then follow the prompts to enter. One lucky winner will be announced next week. Good luck!

Happy Friday, friends! Today I’m so excited to recap our recent summer trip to Jackson, Wyoming. (You can check out the first half of the trip here.) Eric and I visited Jackson Hole back in December with a couple of friends and absolutely fell in love with the town. We had a blast in the winter but knew we wanted to see Jackson in the summer…and spring and fall.
And so we went. This time it was just the two of us, and we got to town with no real plans, no reservations, and no speed but slow. It was warm out, so the days were perfect for roaming around town, moseying into local shops, swinging through Grand Teton National Park, and grabbing a magazine to read outside in the town square. By nighttime, we were nursing our second or third food coma of the day and having zero regrets about it.
People have asked which season we preferred there, and it’s really hard to say. It’s just two entirely opposite ends of the spectrum, but we loved both. During the summer, there are definitely A LOT more people in Jackson, but it didn’t stop us from getting into anywhere we wanted to go. A pro of the summer though is definitely ease of moving around. When you don’t have to bundle up in ALL of the layers, walking a few blocks here, there, and everywhere seems like no big deal.
And so, here goes – a few favorite spots that we hit this time around. And we will definitely be back in any season – so let me know if we’ve missed any of your favorites in town!
Hotel Jackson– Y’all, I really cannot say enough good things about this hotel. I can’t decide what I loved most – the cozy room, the prime location, the beyond-friendly staff, or the restaurant. The room was pretty perfect for us – nothing crazy big, but nice and new with an in-room Nespresso machine and L’Occitane goodies in the shower. The location really can’t be beat either. It’s right in town so you can walk to pretty much everything, but it’s about a block or so off of the main street so it’s really quiet. The valet, doormen, and front desk staff were super friendly and helpful, and a bartender there introduced me to Bear Root Bitters, a new favorite of mine. (Highly recommend a few drops of the Habanero Ginger for spicy margaritas.) The restaurant and outside bar were both great, and I’m recapping those below.
Happy Hour at Bin 22 – This place is the cutest little combination of a small restaurant and bar with a market full of great beer and wines. We stopped in during our last trip just to grab a couple of bottles of wine, but this time we stumbled upon their happy hour at the bar. Glasses were around $5 (I think), and I got to try a couple of new-to-me wines that I loved.
Dinner at Snake River Grill– When we visited in December, we regretted not having dinner at Snake River Grill, so this time we made up for it by eating here twice. I’m pretty sure their Steak Tartare Pizza is one of Eric’s favorite meals of life, and we had a crispy fish taco appetizer special that really rocked my socks. This place is seriously delicious, and whether you go with steak, fish, or anything else on the menu, you really can’t go wrong.
Drinks at Smokin’ Iron at Hotel Jackson – The back patio bar at Hotel Jackson is serving up live music, super comfy adirondack seating, and SO MANY flights. Flights of beer, mimosas, bloody Mary’s, margaritas or sangria – pick your poison and then choose your flavors. Eric says I’m a sucker for miniature things, and he’s right because I totally love this concept.
Brunch at The Bird– We met a local (who BTW has this awesome company – seriously yummy bars) during happy hour at Bin 22 who suggested we check out brunch at The Bird. And he was so, so right. The burgers were delicious and served on English muffins, which may sound a little odd, but it totally works for brunch. Overall, the cabin-meets-bar atmosphere was super fun, the deck is dog-friendly, and the mimosas just keep flowing. The Bird is a few minutes out of town, but there’s a shuttle van that will pick you up and then bring you back to town afterwards.
Snake River Sporting Club– The last time we were in Jackson, we met a local couple at dinner one night and have kept in touch ever since. For this trip, they asked if we’d like to do pool time and dinner at Snake River Sporting Club, and after looking into it, we knew we’d be crazy to pass up the offer. Y’all, this place is something to see. The food was delicious, we had the entire patio deck to ourselves, and the views from both dinner and the drive in were incredible. It’s members-only, but if you happen to know someone in town who’s a member, ask them, beg them, force them to take you here. It’s bananas.
Sloshies at Creekside Market & Deli – Those same friends introduced us to Sloshies, and our lives may never be the same. They’re only sold during the summer months (hence why we never heard about them during our frigid December trip) and consist of fresh-squeezed juice and vodka that’s been swirling around in a slushie machine for hours. They’re like a frozen greyhound and are basically what summertime cocktail dreams are made of. I’m told there are a few places around that sell them, but we got ours (on multiple occasions, including on the way to the airport) from Creekside Market.
Lunch or Dinner at FIGS at Hotel Jackson – Lebanese food may not come to mind first when you think of restaurants in Jackson, but I’m telling you, this lunch was bomb. It’s located in the lobby of Hotel Jackson, so Eric and I grabbed one last feast here before heading home. The falafel sliders, kofta kabobs, and spicy hummus with homemade pita bread did not disappoint, and I legit thought about shoving the rest of the pitas in my bag for the plane ride home. I don’t eat Lebanese food often, but this is definitely the best that I’ve had.
