Scheels - sneak peek!

A few weeks ago I got a sneak peek of the new Scheels store in Sandy, Utah (psst..I love my job!) Have you ever been to a Scheels? I have been to the one in Reno, Nevada a few times so I was excited that they were expanding closer to me. Their Grand Opening in Utah is this weekend - Saturday the 29th.

Although a lot of the store was still in boxes and being set up it's going to be amazing!!! They have really dialed into our love for fashion here in Utah and will offer the latest trends and styles from some of your favorite big department stores (but all in 1 place). And if you don't take my word for it check out the sneak peek post Fashion Utah did!

Now if you are thinking - isn't it like a Cabela's? (which I have had a lot of people ask me) I say no - It's better! You get the Hunting and sporting goods BUT it's an experience (plus remember the Utah is going to have great fashionable shopping for the women!)

There is a  ferris wheel in the middle of the store - with a glass ceiling so you can see the Mountains



Several interactive stops and games for the WHOLE family - bowling, golf, the shooting gallery and more! 



 and we CAN'T forget the aquarium!!! When you walk into the store you are greeted with and walk under an amazing aquatic experience! I was lucky enough to be there when they were releasing the fish into the water. Pretty cool! A whole team, scuba diver and hundreds of different types of fish.





Scheels is going to be a fun 1 hour stop or a whole day! I know my kids love going and spending lots of time there! And they have a cafe too with lots of yummies!
My friend Emily of Is this Really My Life has a Scheels recap + a GIVEAWAY going on right now! Pop over to her blog to enter!
 And when you visit Scheels let me know what you think!

What I wore - modestpop.com

Fall weather has been peeking in and out here so it's been fun to break out the jackets and boots and then be able to wear capris and short sleeves a few days later!

I got this "Lani" top from Modestpop.com. It's a great neutral color but has a fun white medallion designs on the front and even some bling too!
I paired it with with orange jacket. I bought this jacket in the summer months at a second hand store. Tip #1 - look for off season clothing items - you can usually get them for a great deal on clearance or thrifting them when others aren't looking for those items.



I paired it with some skinny jeans and my new favorite boots! Which I got at the end of Spring/beginning of Summer on clearance knowing I would have to wait a bit to wear them but it's sooo worth it for the clearance/off season price!
Tip #2 - If you find a jacket you love but the sleeves aren't quite long enough (anyone else have this problem or is it just me? LOL) see if you still like the jacket with the sleeves pushed up or slightly rolled. That's how I always wear this jacket.

A few simple, bold silver accessories and the outfit is complete!
