One of the greatest things about living in Utah is experiencing the changes in seasons! Fall is most definitely the prettiest time of year in our opinion.
One of the reasons the change in seasons is so fun is because we get to change out our wardrobes with each season! Wearing neutral colors and transitional shoes is a great way to start to transition your wardrobe into fall.
Anthropologie has some great pieces that can be paired with so many different things!
Paige's navy & cream skirt (unfortunately not available anymore, but we linked a similar one) is so comfortable and can easily be dressed up or down. Regan's olive green vest is the perfect layering piece for the warmer fall months, and she paired it with one if her more summery tops (which is currently on sale for under $20!) - gotta get as much use out of those summer clothes as possible before it's too cold!
P.S. Regan's faux leather tote is a new favorite for fall - it's reversible from brown to black, and is under $50! All of our outfit details are linked at the bottom of this post :)

You know we love our flannels! We've talked about them before and shared two of our favorite ways to wear them HERE, but we're back with another post on this wardrobe staple because…FALL! What better time to bust out a flannel than the season of crisp air, colorful leaves, and PUMPKIN everything?? Plus, we just found the perfect one that's a new MUST-have in our opinion, and wanted to share it with our readers :)
The flannel we're both wearing in this post is a new one from BP that we're so in love with. It easily rivals the expensive Rails and other to die for name brand flannels out right now, but is only a fraction of the price!
This flannel fits great (not too boxy), is super soft and comfy, and is such a great price you don't even have to limit yourself to one color… it comes in 6! (We may end up with them all)
Thanks for reading, and if you take the advice and purchase one or two (or five) of these babies we hope you love it as much as we do! Flannels and full outfits linked below :)
Hey guys! The best sale of the year starts TODAY! If you didn't get to shop early access (a perk of having a Nordstrom card) don't worry! There's still plenty of goods left, and we've gone through and picked our favorites to share with all of our awesome followers :) All of these items are under $150, but get em while they're hot! Prices go up August 7th.
In honor of Sidney's wedding coming up this weekend (what?!), we thought we'd post a couple summer wedding attire ideas! Wedding season is in full force, and what's worse than having nothing to wear or having to worry about going out and buying something new each time a friend or family member gets hitched?! We're so over worrying about what to wear, and wanted to show a couple easy outfits that work as wedding attire, but also can be worn over and over again as daytime dresses or church outfits.
Dress up a more casual skirt and basic top with a fancy statement necklace to make your outfit look more formal…
Choose a flowing knee length, fun summer dress that you can dress up with pumps or dress down with a cute sandal wedge…
We don't know about you, but our favorite type of weddings are ones that double as full blown dance parties, so we like to wear things we can move around in! Being able to "drop it low" if we feel so inclined is obviously important, so we don't want to wear anything too short or too tight to avoid flashing our fellow wedding goers! Just something to think about ;)
Anyways, thanks for reading! All outfit details are linked below :) Hope you all are having a great start to your summer!
Sharing a couple of our favorite summer pieces from Anthro this season! The vest Paige is wearing is the one we featured on Good Things Utah and promised to link on our blog :)
Regan is wearing a denim blush midi skirt from Anthro that we're so in love with! All outfit details linked at the bottom of this post. Hope you all are having a great start to summer! Wohoo!
Hello readers! Paige here to talk about my postpartum mom bod! Yep, I still have one. It's been three and a half months and I'm 12 lbs over my pre-baby weight ='( I gained 60 lbs during my pregnancy though so I guess I'm not too mad about it! What can you do?
My outfit (below right) has been my go to style ever since MJ was born. I carry my weight in my lower half, so dresses look much more flattering on me than pants do! My stomach is almost back to normal so I always try to accentuate it. I still have a little extra something something in my lower belly however, which I cover up by tying a chambray or flannel around my waist. It also helps cover up the extra stuff I've got going on in my hips and booty! ;)
If you carry your weight up top, I envy you. Loose fitting tunics and tops are so in right now and you can find them everywhere! Pair a cute, loose fitting top with your favorite stretchy leggings (until you fit back in your jeans) and you're set! Regan's outfit (below) is a perfect example.
I hope any new moms out there struggling to lose the baby weight like me can find this helpful! Remember, you're body went through these changes to bring you one of the most beautiful gifts life has to offer. Try not to worry too much about the weight, and just dress to flatter your body and make yourself feel good! Eat healthy and work out when you can, but most of all enjoy this precious time!!
Thanks so much for reading. Outfit details linked below :)
Paige here to talk about officially becoming a working mom! Last month I finally went back to work selling real estate, and although I LOVE my job I have to say it's been a little bitter sweet. Luckily, selling homes provides me with a fairly flexible schedule, but spending time and energy focused on something other than MJ has been an adjustment!
It was always the plan to take the standard 6-8 weeks off after having the baby, and then return to work full time with a few minor adjustments… I’d do more of my office work from home, and schedule home showings in the evenings when my husband is home or when my mother-in-law could watch him. Easy-peasy, right?! To be honest, I thought I’d actually enjoy returning to work and having a little time away from everything baby! When the time came however, I felt differently.
First of all, do people really only take SIX weeks of maternity leave?! That’s what I’d heard was pretty standard, but when 6 weeks rolled around I felt NO where near ready to return to work. By 8 weeks I felt a little better, but it still took me a couple more weeks to really feel ready to get back into the swing of things. I’m blessed to have a job that allowed me that flexibility because I don’t know what I would’ve done otherwise! 10-12 weeks should be standard time off for maternity leave in my opinion! AND by the way (side note for those without kids) “time off” doesn’t equate to “vacation time” when you’re on maternity leave. I actually had another realtor in my office ask me if I had a nice “vacation” when I returned to work, haha. I don’t remember having sore nipples, getting no sleep and constantly cleaning up poop and spit up on any vacation I’ve ever been on, but ok ;)
To help boost my motivation to return to the work force, I did, of course, what any sane woman would do…a little retail therapy ;) There’s nothing like a brand new, professional-looking outfit to get you into work mode! I may still be a few sizes larger than I used to be but hey, new clothes are new clothes! Plus, when you find a skirt that holds everything in like this black one does, who cares?
The outfits shown here are the results of my retail therapy (which Regan happily joined in on) and our favorite go-to look this season for work attire. You can't go wrong pairing a dressy solid with a fun spring/summer print!
Anyways, now that I’m officially back, things are going pretty well! It’s a lot harder to get my office work done at home than I thought it would be (since MJ isn’t a great napper) but my schedule for showing homes is working out great so far! Really I just need more clients…(the only downside to taking so much time off has been people forgetting that I’m in the business!) So, (shameless self-plug time) if you, or anyone you know in Utah is looking into buying or selling a house, call or email me! 760-801-7993 firstname.lastname@example.org :)

Adding a flannel tied around the waist can add so much to any outfit. Not only do they create an extra layer and added style to a basic tee and jeans or dress, but they are also super flattering and can be used as a cover up when tied around the waist. We'll actually be talking about this more in a future post!
Today we wanted to show how verstitile a flannel can be. Below are two looks showing how easily you can dress a flannel up, or wear it casual.
Express has some awesome oversized plaid shirts right now at great price points! Links to all outfit details and some of our favorite flannels are below!
Dress It Up
Wear It Casual
Is it weird that black & white is probably our favorite color combo? It just works. Especially in the wintertime. A couple of our favorite things about these two looks: Sidney's sweater and Regan's coat (heart eyes for days). Sidney was tempted to buy her sweater in both color options. If you haven't noticed, she is super in to wearing looser-fitting tops, and this is no exception. It's the perfect amount of "flowy" and so, so soft! Regan's windowpane coat is the perfect piece to dress up (and warm up) any outfit. Love the windowpane pattern that's become more and more popular lately. All outfit details are linked below!
You've probably noticed we are all about wearing neutrals. We love having neutral colors in our closet because they are so versatile and can go with so many different things. A neutral pair of pants is way more worth spending money on to us, because you can get so much more use out of them! We love this olive color pants Regan's wearing, and Sidney's neutral cords are so comfortable and currently on sale for under $70! Also, you may see Sidney's thermal Free People top on repeat in multiple colors for both of us. We LOVE this top! It's so soft and we love that it's longer in the back. We both own it in a couple different colors. Full outfit details and links to each item below :)
We took a much needed break from the fashion posts over the holidays, but are finally back at it! These are a couple of our favorite looks to wear on a chilly Sunday to church. Regan's super comfortable long-sleeve dress is on sale at Nordstrom Rack for only $40 in grey but also available in this red color here. Sidney's shoes are sold out in her color, but available in black (Paige has this color, we love these wedges!). Keep checking back though for the neutral color to come back in stock ;) All outfit details are linked below!
