Keep It Simple!

When getting ready for the day, I like to follow the “rule of three.”  It’s a concept that makes looking put together a lot simpler and cut your dressing time in half in my own opinion. The “rule of three” basically consists of 1 top, 1 bottom, and 1 accessory piece (jacket, hat, scarf, etc.) The third piece of your outfit just completes the look, and it makes sense. It takes an outfit that falls flat, to an outfit that stands out!

Here are some of my favorite “3rd pieces” as of late!

Boho Top Knot & Fishtail Combo!

This is how I create one of my favorite looks for the summer time! It is really easy and super quick, which is why I love it so much! It is perfect for those days when your hair really should be washed but you would rather just not deal with it! I hope you enjoy and let me know if you have any questions in the comments below!

Home Goods!

I’ve put together a few of my newest home goods all from my favorite store that just happens to be my place of work, Anthropologie! Ever since moving out of my parents home and into my own little place, my love for all things home decor is at an all time high. I swear I buy more pillows and kitchen gadgets than I do clothes these days! But I must say I don’t hate it.  Each of these are my recent favorites that make me excited to come home after a long day as silly as it may be!

Hope this helps give you some inspiration for your own place, and let me know what you have been loving and think I should add to my ever growing collection!

Workout Gear!

Earlier this year, I shared my monthly workout plan to help keep on track with my goals. And I must say I have been following it pretty closely, with a few skips here & there. I thought it would be fun to share some products that I have been loving and have been making my workouts a little more bearable! From clothes to gear, these items are a go to for me each day!

Workout

Fitbit // Waterbottle // Hoodie // Sports Bra // Shoes // Earbuds // Yoga Mat // Bag // Leggings

As you can probably tell, I tend to workout and in darker clothing, preferably black. It hides everything so you don’t have to worry about looking too gross during your workout.  Longchamps are my favorite bags for anything, I use mine almost everyday for work, for the beach, a carry on, and a gym bag. They are lightweight and hold so much! I recently just purchased my new S’well Waterbottle and I am already obsessed with it. It keeps your water cold all day (literally all day)! I hope this was helpful for any of you looking to change up your workout attire. Let me know what your must haves are for the gym!

Winter Stripes!

Winter has finally arrived here in Charlottesville and with that came a giant blizzard that kept me way from work for almost 3 days! And I must admit that during those wonderful snow days, I went into hibernation, which pretty much means I wore nothing but leggings and sweatshirts all day long! But now that I am back to work it is time to step up my game a bit!

I am definitely a dress girl, no doubt about it. They are so easy and comfortable, but for some reason when you wear a dress everyone thinks that means you have your life together, which is perfectly fine with me! However dresses in the winter can be pretty tricky since it is so cold and they don’t provide all that much layering!

I found the perfect little dress that gives you great shape, it is fun & flirty, but has a sweater material to keep you nice and warm all day! To be honest, I bought this dress, returned it, and bought it back because I loved it that much! The best news is that it is now on sale for under $100!

New Trails

One of my favorite things to do in my free time is go for hikes. It’s a great way to stay in shape, get outside, and just explore! Joey took me to a small trail right behind my apartment at Chris Green Lake and it was really fun! Not a lot of work required, but perfect for a last minute stroll, and the view wasn’t bad either!

New Years Style!

I don’t think there is anything more stressful than picking out a New Years outfit! After all, what if the place your going is more casual, or everyone in your group decides to get super glammed up last minute, or the weather just isn’t cooperating?

Well, I found the perfect dress that works for each scenario! The all white is crisp and perfect for winter! Just add a pair of sparkly tights and a statement necklace to jazz up the look. Or if you all decide on a more casual location, pair it with some opaque, black tights & booties to dress it down!
