Aspen Outfits

Hi friends! Hope you had an amazing weekend! I posted some OOTD pics on Instagram while I was in Aspen and received lots of questions about outfit details, so I thought it would be easiest to put all details in one blog post for you! 

DAY 1: 

Jacket (sells out quick, but sign up for restock notifications because they restock frequently) similar HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE / Sweater / Jeans / Hat / Boots / Purse (dupe here) / Sunnies / Watch / Bracelet

The first day, I spent the morning resting at the house and then met my parents in town later for a little aprΓ©s ski. It was chilly so I wanted to be comfortable and wear cozy layers. 

DAY 2:

Jacket / Sweater / Leggings (must have!) / Hat / Boots / Purse

The second day was weird weather - it started off raining and then got really snowy. My mom and I walked around town and did a little shopping, but decided to call it a day once it got too snowy to walk around. 

DAY 3:

Jacket (super old), similar HERE, HERE, HERE, HEREHERE/ Sweater / Jeans / Hat / Booties / Bag

Our last day was probably the most fun. I spent the morning at the house resting while my parents skied, but then we had a super fun afternoon in town. We went to the Hotel Jerome for a drink and some appetizers, then went across the street to Matsuhisa for THE BEST sushi. They have multiple locations - if you ever have the opportunity to eat there, DO. We sat at the sushi bar and chatted with the chef - lots of fun to dine that way.

Hope you guys had a great weekend! If you have any questions on my outfits or things we did in Aspen, please don't hesitate to ask!

Gallery Wall with Desenio

I apologize in advance for the quality of these photos. Long story short, I had too many things working against me and this is the best I could do :)

I have slowly been sprucing up my apartment lately. Mostly in terms of cleaning out and organizing things, but also little decorating touches as well. I was so excited to have the opportunity to work with Desenio to put together a little gallery wall. Desenio is Swedish-based and offers a broad assortment of posters, prints and frames. All their posters and prints are trendy and high quality. 

When putting my gallery wall together, I wanted to find prints that reflected my style and design aesthetic - and I'll be honest, I had a REALLY hard time narrowing down my selections. They have something for everyone. I know some of my fashionistas will really love some of their prints (think Vogue covers, fashion prints, etc.). I ordered THIS one in 24"x26" and am having it framed for my bedroom. Any theme you want to follow, they have something for you. The possibilities are endless. 

Now the extra good news... a discount code just for Sweet & Sauer fans! Code 'mallory25' will get you 25% off from Jan. 31 - Feb. 2. Here's the fine print: the discount code is case sensitive, code does not work for clips, hangers or frames, and excludes their premiums. 

Here are some photos of the prints I selected, and the gallery wall as a whole. 

Definitely check out Desenio. I really do love all their prints and think you will too :)

Thank you to Desenio for gifting my prints. All frames from Hobby Lobby.

See more of my outfit pics and Bear's fashion show look below:

Bear was entered into the 'Most Adorable' category, but unfortunately did not win (thing was rigged if you ask me, I mean look at that face!). He sported a toddler size 3 down jacket and a neck gator to keep himself nice and warm. Way to go, Bear, for being a good sport. 

We still had fun playing around Aspen anyway :)
