Gingham Fever

Dress: c/o DressBarn// Sunnies: Quay//Handbag: JustFab//Booties: Franco Sarto

I always look forward to spring so I can find an excuse to wear as much gingham as possible. Last year  you saw me in the same gingham top all spring and summer (here). I love it because it's so festive! And the pattern is forgiving to everyone. I'm convinced the consistency of the lines are what make every body type look so good! 

I was originally supposed to wear this dress for a Mother's Day brunch at my Aunts house but the weather wasn't cooperating. It was cold and semi rainy, so I saved this dress for sunnier days and warmer temps. Good News: I was able to wear the dress the following weekend! 

Lately the weather hasn't been spring dress friendly. I think summer will be late this year. If that's the case, then I guess I'll wear this dress into December. Oh well!

Perfume Favorites

Tuesday, May 8, 2018

What does your scent say about you? My scent says a lot. scents say a lot. I like to have different options of fragrance so I can change them based on my mood. If I am feeling fun and light, or sexy and warm, I have a scent that will fit my mood and every occasion. 

When I was younger I used to stick to one scent. You name it and I probably wore it at some point. In college I LIVED for Bright Crystal by Versace and after college I STAYED in Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel...which is a classic and is STILL in rotation. If I go back even further and give you two letters and number, you'll know exactly what era I am from!

What I love about fragrance is that every scent is different on every body. The different pH levels we have is what makes the same scent different on all of us.  So no matter what scent you buy and wear everyday it will always be your own. 

Here is a list of my favorite scents I currently have on rotation. 




New Workout with Lola Getts

Wednesday, April 18, 2018

At the end of March I decided to change my workout routine. I've been doing the same workout for a while and I think my body needed a break from my usual routine. So I decided to start walking...a little running and hiking, but walking for sure!  It sounds simple but walking is one of the best workouts you can do. It's easy on your joints and packs a huge punch!

In November I started a new job and because of the location I started taking public transportation.  Since November I have been walking more out of necessity to and from the train station. I started to see a change in my body one month into the new job, so I decided that this was something I needed to do more of. I'm not on a mission to loose weight, but being healthy is something that's very important to me. I make sure I eat well and stay active.

I recently discovered a premium workout clothing brand called Lola Getts. Lola Getts is a workout brand dedicated to sizes 14 and up. The pieces are perfect for the curvy woman who likes to workout or for the curvy woman who wants to start something new. Hear me when I tell you that I love love love these pieces! They are made so well and made with so much intelligence. The fabric is strong and I feel so secure. One thing I hate but have gotten used to is feeling jiggly in workout gear. The 'Perfect Pant' is the best compression legging I have ever had. I literally slid them on and said aloud to myself, "OH YES!"I am super excited that I have discovered this amazing brand.

I plan on finishing my month of walking with a bang and in my new workout clothes! I also plan on getting these in more colors!
