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!

This year we once again found ourselves in the penthouse at the White Buffalo Club. (I highlighted that in this post, and while it sounds and is way bougie, it’s so ideal and actually affordable for a group.) When people ask why we love Jackson so much, it’s really hard to pin it down. This trip, we roamed, we listened to live music, some skied or snowboarded, I once again met up with Erin to snap a few photos, we ate ALL the food, and mostly, had all the laughs. Below are a few tried and true favorites and a couple of new spots that we loved.
Breakfast at Persephone Bakery – The last couple of times that we visited Jackson, we picked up a few delicious pastries from Persephone, but this time, Erin suggested trying the full-on breakfast menu there after we shot a few photos around town. And OH MAN. It’s pretty much a full menu of everything I want to eat for breakfast. I was seriously tempted by the bread pudding French toast, thought hard about the shakshuka, and eventually landed on the Scone Skillet (a gussied-up version of biscuits and gravy) and had no regrets.
Dinner at The Silver Dollar Bar at The Wort Hotel – During our first full day, most members of our group were snowboarding, so when it came time for dinner, we were all pretty beat. (We even had tickets for a concert in Teton Village that night that we opted to skip.) So we picked an old favorite that we stop in once (or several times) every time we visit Jackson. The Silver Dollar Bar is a comfy spot with live music, friendly staff, and hearty food to keep you warm, and we always eat in the bar where it’s casual and cozy. I usually go for the chili, but a friend ordered the beef pot pie which was the table favorite.
Breakfast at Cafe Genevieve – Be still my Southern heart, Cafe Genevieve was just as good as I remembered. It’s seriously the coziest little cafe that feels like you’re in someone’s home, and the menu is packed full of things I want to order. This time we slept in a bit so I was feeling more of a lunch mood. The grilled cheese and tomato soup did not disappoint, and neither did the bloody Mary complete with candied bacon. YUM!
Beer flights at Snake River Brewing – With full bellies and a few free days ahead of us, we set out to explore, and what do you know, after a swing through Town Square, I led our group right over to Snake River Brewing. I remembered that when we visited the year before, there was a wood-burning fire so that we could warm up while having a local brew. This year, the fireplace was empty, but the $15 beer flights (and a giant soft pretzel for me) kept our group happy for a while.
Lunch or afternoon snacks at Bin 22 – This favorite little wine market is only about a block or two from The White Buffalo Club, so obviously we found ourselves back at the Bin…several times. Grab a bottle of wine for the road, or sit down and stay a while with meats, cheeses, and small plates. Eric fell in love with the oxtail soup here this trip, made everyone go back the next day to try it, and has been raving about it ever since. I can’t really speak on the oxtail soup (I didn’t try it, sorry!), but I was super jazzed on the housemade meatball.
Dinner at The Blue Lion – This one was a new one for us. It came highly recommended and is located literally about 10 steps from our door at the White Buffalo Club, so it was a no-brainer for dinner one night. It’s a dinner-only spot situated in an old house and has live acoustic guitar music most nights – basically, it’s cute AF. Most of our group had the lamb or the elk and enjoyed it, and I loved the trout amandine. We would definitely go back here on future trips.
Brunch at The Bird – Bird, bird, bird…Bird is the word. Eric and I LOVED stopping into The Bird over the summer, and on this trip, it was a collective group favorite again. We Ubered over to The Bird (it’s a bit out of town) and ended up spending more than a couple of hours watching the snow, catching a couple of games, mimosa-ing, and (duh) eating the dank ass food. For me, the burgers are where it’s at, and with a ton of options to choose from, I’m going with the American cheese, grilled onion, and fried egg covered Slue. Don’t judge me. And once you’re fat, full, and happy, hop in their shuttle for a free ride home.
Sleigh ride through the National Elk Reserve – Jackson is home to a huge National Elk Reserve, and the last time that I ventured into it, we were a little too early for the elk. For this trip, though, we were right on time, so we took a horse-drawn sleigh through the reserve. The whole tour took about an hour, and while it was admittedly a little uneventful at times, we did get to see some pretty big elk up close and personal which made it totally worth the $25 (per person) we spent. Also a side note: bundle up because it’s COLD in the winter.
Drinks and chili at the Rustic Inn – After the sleigh ride we headed across the street to the Rustic for a drink before dinner and mostly to thaw out. The bar slash restaurant area is tiny but so cozy, and the staff that we met was super friendly. The whole inn (resort really) is situated creekside and boasts some pretty sweet creekside rooms and cabins. Eric and I hadn’t even heard about this place before, but we’ve decided we definitely want to try and stay here on a future trip.
Apps at Snake River Grill – I’ve chatted about this place in my previous two Jackson recaps, but good God, Eric and I love Snake River Grill. The main courses are seriously dee-lish, but this time around we stacked up the apps and went IN on the small plates. The steak tartare pizza is Eric’s go-to, and the lobster spring rolls and truffle tagliatelle pasta are new faves of mine.
Drinks and snacks at Roadhouse Brewing Co. – This is a newer spot right on the Town Square that we stopped into before heading to the airport, and the beers that I tried were GOOD. I loved that we could create our own flight of locally-brewed beers, but I will admit that the service here was…bananas…in a bad way. (To be fair, they were brand new, so we’ll give them the benefit of the doubt on that one.)
