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!

Spring Fever Must Haves!

As of yesterday, it is officially SPRING! I have been waiting for this day since the first snow hear in Charlottesville. Spring is the time of year where there’s fresh flowers everywhere, sundresses, and outdoor activities that last more than 30 minutes!

Spring style is my favorite because it is so effortless, you don’t have to wear 5 different layers. You can throw on a dress, necklace, and pair of sandals & be good to go! So I’ve decided to list some of my favorites from UOIOnline.com to give y’all some spring inspiration! Also, if you use the code KERRYMAR online, you will receive 10% off your entire purchase!

Happy Shopping!

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!

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!

Green Glow! 

I’m only 13 days into my clean eating resolution and the green juices are my absolute favorite part of each day!

It’s only been a short time since I started drinking them again, but I can already see & feel the difference! I have more energy and my skin looks healthier even with this dry, cold air!

I figured since I love it so much, I should share my favorite recipe!

 

  • Handful of spinach
  • Handful of kale
  • 1 peach (can be frozen)
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • Wheatgrass Powder
  • Coconut oil (optional)

Add water and ice to make whichever consistency you would like and BLEND!

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!

Fall Photoshoot!

While fall is sadly coming to an end, I thought it would be a great idea for Joey and I to get some professional photos taken (not ones where we are at our fake wedding) since our lives have changed so much since our college days and continuing so!

So I called up my very talented sister, Katie, of Katie Powers Photography to capture a few shots of us while we were still in the prettiest season of them all!
