I’ll admit going to the gym in January is probably my least favorite time of the year. I’m a frequent early morning gym goer and in the winter the sun doesn’t come up until about 7:30. Not to mention it’s really chilly out so I just want to lay in my bed forever. Then there’s the influx of New Years resolution gym joiners. While I’m definitely team “you do you,” I choose one of the least populated times for a reason. I can’t stand when people insist on being right next to me when there’s 33 other empty treadmills in the vicinity. Believe me, you’d feel the same if someone insisted on using the elliptical next to you while talking on the phone every time they used it. Every. Time.
But enough of my complaining. Activewear has been a huge trend for a while now. It’s more commonplace to wear these outfits everywhere from the grocery store to brunch. Speaking of which, can we stop wearing this stuff to brunch? Either way having really stylish activewear to the gym makes it much more fun to go. I’m definitely not a ratty, old clothes at the gym type of person. But lately I’ve felt myself slipping because the holidays did a number on me, and I wasn’t feeling 100% great. I am trying to flip that down and reverse it so I went looking for some fit style inspo. It was not hard to find, and now I might have less of a problem looking good at the gym, but getting out of bed to begin with is a whole different story.
I love a good pair of joggers. Joggers are just really stylish sweatpants. They have a better fit and grab at the ankle. They are lazy and just lazy enough without screaming “I haven given up on life.” I wear mine a lot on Sundays because it is usually a day for lounging around and being comfortable. They pair really well with sneakers if you choose to wear them out and about. I think my favorite thing about them is I can feel dressed without really getting dressed all the way. Depending on the color choice, they can appear like regular pants. I saw a lot of different color and pattern choices when looking around at different sweatpants options. They are just your typical greys, blacks, and grey black combinations. No, some even appear to look like tailored trousers in special colors and even a pinstripe pattern. I’m not really sure I would go that far to remain comfortable while trying to appear appropriately dressed for any occasion.

October might be my favorite month. There’s this feeling where everything is changing (yes, dying leaves are great and we don’t even have them here), and the weather finally becomes tolerable. There are tons more things to do and explore. So beware for the next month this blog is going to be filled with so many things I love including classic horror movies, chilly weather clothes, and Halloween.
First up my fall wish list. AKA all the things I really want to buy but probably shouldn’t. How could I possibly say no to the H&M jersey dress? They did send it to me in a marketing email as a Halloween costume so I mean…it serves multiple purposes. I’ve mentioned wanting a burgundy/wine colored sweater before and I think I’ll definitely be scooping up this one. The other items are just pretty little things that have caught my eye over the past few weeks. I’m currently working on a fall shop for the blog filled with things I love and recommend for the next few months. Hopefully that will be done and up soon.
SHOP: Sweater, jeans, Rolling Stones tee, ankle boots, handbag, chambray shirt, rings, dress
While browsing the internet there’s been tons of posts about what to wear this fall. Everything from the color red to bags with fur accents. There’s a lot of time spent saying “why” or “I would never wear this.” But then there’s also a 99% chance there will be a burgundy/wine colored sweater in my closet in the next 4 weeks. It happens. Since there are so many trends I choose just some of my favorites making them the ones that truly matter.
Ah, Labor Day. The unofficial end of summer is finally here. Too bad the Arizona heat won’t be out of here for at least another month. But it’s time to fully embrace the end of summer and fill the final days with fun activities. There are BBQs, beaches, lakes, boats, picnics, and so many other things to do. I have some really fun plans this weekend, but I’m lacking a little in the style department. I’m just not sure what to wear.
I feel like I’ve been so lazy lately and living in denim shorts, yoga pants, and tank tops. I’ve just been really uninspired, hating my clothes, or down on myself whatever the reason my outfits have been severely lacking. Going into this weekend I decided I should probably give off some better vibes so I looked around for some end-of-summer outfit inspiration.
There’s a wide range of emotions one goes through when their friends begin to announce they are having children. First, you wonder how you got this old where married people are starting a family. Then you try to forget about it because there’s a tiny little biological fire deep inside you wondering what’s wrong with you. Why don’t you have a babies of you own? Time is running out. You don’t want to be the old mom in the elementary school class, you wanna be the cool mom. You better hurry. Next, you gotta buy all the little baby stuff and attend a baby shower. This inevitably reignites the baby fire of confusion, and the cycle begins all over again.
Cynical? Probably, but deep down we all want the same things: love, marriage, (sometimes) kids. Naturally it’s a bit hard to avoid the existential crisis that comes along with all of these life events. Everyone else seems to have it together, what am I doing wrong? Eventually I came to the conclusion, age is just a number and my life isn’t together enough (yet) for me to mess up a poor helpless child’s life. But that still leaves one frivolous yet burning question: What the hell do I wear to a baby shower?
I’ve been so incredibly bored with my closet lately. There hasn’t been a single day this week (except maybe one) where I haven’t reached for a light, baggy sweater and jeans. It might be a mood based thing (everything seems to suck) or maybe it’s just so hot & humid out I just don’t want to be bothered. Unfortunately, I have occasions coming up where surely people will not want to see my laziness/mood on full display. SO I went in search of inspiration. What is cool right now? What are people wearing? What do I wish I could pull off as some #GOALS?
Enter Martha Hunt. I don’t know much about her other than she’s a Victoria’s Secret model and a member of Taylor Swift’s “squad.” Whatever that is…After seeing an outfit I could really pull off, I fell into a complete rabbit hole looking at her style. Victoria’s Secret models are my favorite source of life inspo. I’m not even gonna lie I love doing Youtube work outs that claim I can get Victoria’s Secret abs, legs, or whatever other body part you can name. I WISH I could have abs this great. Anyway, Martha’s style is sexy and just plain cool. There were so many outfits I wanted to copy instantly. Most of them were simple but well put together and eye catching.
Below you’ll find some of my favorites and selected pieces to recreate them.
Midi skirt, sandals, blazer, sunglasses, leather leggings, denim shorts, camisole, flats, lace bodysuit (if you’re daring), crop trousers, metallic shorts, ankle boots, trendy bag
