Pretty Leather Pieces


Just another example of how I am drawn to simple simple pieces. Simple yet beautiful pieces. And I especially love throwing in pretty leather. I've said it time and time again. My closet is full of basic tees and jeans (in this case, turtleneck tee hehe)... Which I feel like I will never change that. I love a unique pair of shoes or pretty bag so much just for the simple fact that they can change up that same tee and jeans every day and make the look unique.

Life Lately with a Style Flash

It's been a while since I shared what was going on in my life lately. It's weird cuz not much has gone on but at the same time a lot has haha. I went home to Idaho for a week. My parents dogs had little adorable puppies that I'm pretty much obsessed with. I spent my days watching lots of good movies and cuddling with little puppies and momma dogs. Seeing my family was wonderful too. Ready for puppy overload?? 
 This is beautiful Rivkah and her little bundles of preciousness.
 Seriously though. HEART EYES!!
 These are Grace's three beauties. They came out big and are just the sweetest things.
One of Rivi's little boys catching flies!! haha. They all LOVVEEE having their tummies scratched.
And One of Gracies little boys sticking his tongue out at me. I seriously fell in love with them. I can't wait to see them again and I'm excited that when I do their little eyes will be looking back at me!

If you may be interested in an English Cream Golden Retriever find my parents facebook page "Buckley's Hollow Golden Retrievers."

And heres a little style flash of thrift finds and a few outfits that didn't make the blog yet:
 Thrift find!! Vintage genuine leather jacket.
My rad dipped top is from Recycle, Consign, and Design. Love it's uniqueness and fun oversized fit!
 Favorite Bungalow 123 scarf, JCrew denim, Maeberry Vintage boots, vintage Coach bag.
 I found these Salt Water sandals almost brand new!! I own a red pair and was literally going to invest in this color but found them recently second hand. I was soo excited.
 Sam Edelman leopard tennies, Anthropologie trench, Fount Leather Goods bag.
 Thrifted and vintage Poncho!! Such a cool western feel to it!
 A vintage inspired sweater I recently found at JCrew, matched with my leopard sneakers that I wear everyday.
 I just found this Anthropologie sweater recently second hand. I think it goes quite well with my leopard flats. I like mixing prints. :)
 Andddddd a splurge from Madewell. The perfect pair of overalls. And a perfect basic tee from Joah Brown.
Last but not least another second hand find. This sweater I wanted at Urban Outfitters when it was there. Finding it thrifting is my favorite cuz I buy it for a fraction of the cost. SCORE!!

Thats all for now. Life is good and stylish and just full of good things.

Beijos!!

I look slightly ready to saddle up my horse and gallop around town. I'm just one with the old western cowboys.

Exceptional

This is my second blanket scarf from Bungalow 123 (First one seen on THIS POST) and I could not be any more pleased with it. I just love this little shop. I love love their selection, quality is wonderful, and prices are very affordable. You can still receive 15% off your purchase using code "runstylerun." (Will expire February 22.)

Oh...And this bag from Fount Leather Goods is still my favorite ever. The more I use it, the more the leather has settled and just become more beautiful. It is exceptional quality and never fails, I always have someone compliment it when I go out. I feel like I could never have a tote compare to it. Ever. You can't get any better than this bag here. I hope you'll show this amazing company some love. They're well worth it.

Thanks to Samantha Broderick Photography for these photos. If you're in the market for just the best photo quality around and want to meet the sweetest and most talented photographer...She is your gal. I swear it took me at least an hour to narrow down my photo selection. "Brandi...You just don't need 10 photo's for this post... But. but. but.... But I like them all!" (Welcome to my inner voice. hehe) Thanks Sam!

Sharing a Couple Secrets


So....I guess I'll share a little secret of mine. I'm kinda obsessed with shopping at Uptown Cheapskate. Here's the thing...I can take items to sell there, then I have credit to use so it's pretty much like I'm just making an easy trade. I am really good at owning a lot of stuff. But I'm also really really good at filtering and getting rid of stuff as well. So Uptown is just all around really great for me.
These Converse, this genuine leather jacket (brand is Mango!!) , and the striped button down are all items I have found at Uptown Cheapskate. At a fraction of what they are retail. (I mean...This leather jacket??!!!) Thrifting and buying second hand in general is just wonderful for me because I love name brands but you know what? I can't always afford to spend what they cost brand new. I love the thrill of finding cool amazing items as well. Cool unique stylish items that half the time I search for online after I find them and they're usually sold out. Which isn't so great for someone who wants it when they see I have it but its great for me because then I have something that no one else can get anymore. hehe.

I'll share one more secret and that is that my favorite of the Utah Uptown Cheapskates is the one downtown. I always find the best things at this location. Just watch out for bums (sorry to be blunt or sound rude, but I'm being totally serious...)  Honestly...They're all really great. But downtown is my #1. Secrets out now. How about just go sell all your stuff there so I can go buy it. wink wink.

Also I noticed on Instagram that the company I got this awesome leather watch from---Dapper Finish--- is offering 15% off using code "dapper1" just through the month of February. I like a good deal. And I like sharing a good deal on things I like too!! hehe. Enjoy!!
