Periwinkle Blue

I love the colors of spring. Whether soft and subtle, or bright and energetic, spring is a fun time of year to mix things up. For me, having more pieces in my wardrobe that flow easy and have a looser fit work the best for the sunny seasons. I just get too hoot and sweaty if I have tight fit clothing come spring and summer. That’s why I love this periwinkle blue dress from Ruthie Grace. The dress doesn’t have much structure, so it’s really breezy, nice and loose. The color is also perfect for spring and I feel like it really looks great on any skin tone. I’ve paired the dress here with a simple moto jacket and some white leather mules. It would also look great with some metallic sandals and a denim jacket. It’s so basic that it’s so easy to style! What are your favorite colors for spring? I’d love to see how you style them 🙂 I hope that you had a fabulous weekend! Definitely check out Ruthie Grace for some …

All Gray Everything

It’s been a stressful week at work, so I’m glad that it’s almost the weekend! I’m also pumped that it finally stopped raining so that I can bring out all of my suede + leather faves… I love a leather bucket bag because it’s perfect both functionally and for style. This one from Dagne & Dover has really great compartments inside which is seriously a luxury. All of their bags are really function, designed specifically for girls on the go. I love this one because of the fun geometric pattern on the lower half. It’s a nice special touch! As for this gray suede piece of heaven, it’s from ILY Couture– One of my favorite boutiques. They have really cute graphics all of the time. I own this pullover and these comfy joggers. I’d been eyeing this jacket for a while, so when I saw that ILY had it I knew I needed to get one for myself. I just love the silhouette. It’s such a better shape AND quality than any other suede jackets …

Mix N’ Match Style

Sometimes I just like to incorporate more than one trend into my look. Yes, I may get over zealous at times, (lots of wardrobe changes until I find the right combo) but mixing and matching is fun! I’ve listed three of my favorite trends to combine right now– Let me know what you think! The Ascot. Bandanas & silky ascot scarves are coming back for spring. It’s time to ditch your thick knit scarf and get something lighter for the sunnier days that lie ahead. Embroidery (duh). You’re probably sick of me talking about my embroidery obsession at this point… I just can’t help myself! It adds such beautiful detail! A new spin on an old classic. Remember enamel pins from your younger years? Well, they’re coming back and they’re as cool as ever. You also need to check out these killer knotted sandals from Maude. I’d size up though. Mine are a tad snug! I want to see your mix n’ match style! Don’t be afraid to branch out and sport different colors and patterns. …

Here’s to 2017

Sooo it’s 2017. Cheers to all of the fitness goals that die in February, ha. In all honesty, I might be guilty of that…  I’ve been noticing changes in my body now more than ever (so weird).I’ve noticed that I’m just a little squishier than I used to be… My hubby and I went up skiing yesterday (well, he skis, I snowboard) and we didn’t last long. I used to go all day with no problems, but that is not the case any more. We’re both feeling the soreness today and I’ll be honest I feel a little pathetic. I don’t know why, but it’s really difficult for me to feel driven when it comes to exercise. Maybe it’s because I have no idea what I’m doing. I feel very out of place at the gym! I hope that my workout goals last past February, I reeeally do. I just don’t like it. I used to enjoy working out, buuut it’s kind of torture for me now. I need to get back in the groove and …

Getting Comfortable with Yourself

I’m an intensely emotional creature… I cry when I’m sad, angry, happy– You name it. My emotion usually comes in the form of tears– Good or bad. I take things to heart and I genuinely care, sometimes too much. I just can’t help it! Although I have at times wished that I wasn’t so emotional, I’ve learned that it drives me and makes me passionate. It helps me to care for other people and to identify with them. It’s a part of me that at times in my life, I have loathed. But now, as I mature into an adult (whoa, that’s weird) I’ve found that I need to stop suppressing certain characteristics about myself and start embracing them. I’ve honestly never had a lot of confidence… I didn’t even really realize how self conscious I was until this last year. The past few years have been a little crazy, for a lot of reasons, but they’ve made me realize one thing– You have to love yourself. Love your quirks, your talents, your fears and your …
