Giveaway Monday: Adorable Morris Terry Yoga Shorts

Really excited about this week’s giveaway! So, Morris Terry is one of my favorite companies because they have INSANE work out clothes. I die. Today’s giveaway are these incredibly cute and fashionable yoga shorts!! Ok I’ll be the first to admit it, sometimes I have absolutely zero motivation to hit the gym. Seriously, Z-E-R-O. But then again, who does? I think that’s why I love these yoga shorts so much…..they get me excited to go to the gym! Maybe that’s lame, maybe it’s not, but either way it’s the truth. When I have cute workout clothes I get excited to go to the gym because, HELLO, that means I get to wear my hot new shorts!

I’m all about incorporating style into every part of my life. So yes, this includes when I go to the gym! I used to play basketball in high school and my coach would say to us, “When you look good, you feel good. When you feel good, you play good!” Feeling good in all situations, whether it’s on the treadmill or in a Pilates class, will make you want to do better and work harder!!

Now time for the fun part….or as Courtney from the Bachelor would say, WINNING! Comment below and tell me your secrets to finding motivation to go the gym! Also, subscribe to my blog and share this giveaway with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, email, etc. and YOU could win these darling yoga shorts!! You must subscribe to my blog to win, so do it NOW!! The more you share the more chances you have to win!

I’ll be picking a winner on Friday. Good luck and have an amazing week!

Cheers!

Self Love Sundays: Sign Your Name

You sign your name at the end of a letter, when you finish creating a piece of art, or when you are solidifying an important document!  We sign our name to all of these things….It shows that something is ours and leaves a record about where we have been.

This week I went to a concert with mind-blowing music!! It was the kind of music that made me feel like I wanted to get up a dance around like nobody was watching…….so that’s exactly what I did! There is no doubt that the crowed enjoyed every second of the sound because everyone was swaying back and forth with smiles on their faces.  When the concert was over the artist was crowded with people in the lobby signing autographs. The best part about it was that you could tell he was totally enjoying every second of  what he was doing.  Every time he signed an autograph I thought about how a seemingly simple signature was in fact his way of claiming his music and creativity as his own! So inspiring!

He signed his name, he was proud of what he did, and we all should be too!  Be so proud of everything you do that you will WANT to sign your name to it. Let the world know that you are you and that what you create is YOURS! Go. Do. Create. Be.

I love this so much. I want an unlimited amount of these to hang in my closet and other people’s closets! Just imagine this…You go into your closet with no idea what to wear when all of the sudden you come to a hanger that your friend put in your closet to tell you, “You look good in that.” Amazing. Do it for yourself too! You know what you look good in, remind yourself!

Thrifty Thursday: Kray for Kimono

and by ‘kray’ I mean KRAZY of course! Seriously though, I am crazy about this kimono I saw on Free People. This time of year it’s really hard to shop  because you don’t want to waste your money on wintery clothes you can only wear for a few more months of cold but then you don’t want to buy summer clothes that you are going to have to wait forever till you can wear. So, during this time I like to find pieces that I can wear both now and later. Get more bang for my buck if you know what im saying!

Ok so back to my kimono craze! This is from Free People and it’s called the Parisian Print Kimono. It was originally $128.00 but it’s been marked down 70% off and is now only $39.95. The colors in this kimono are gorgeous. The dark background gives it a more fall & wintery feel, but the offset, bright colored florals give you the ok to rock this in spring & summer too. Honestly you are going to wear it all year round.

Right now while you are are waiting for the cold to go away, wear this kimono as pictured above: with leggings and boots. But when warm comes again, lose the leggings for legs and switch out the riding boots for some strappy sandals. And if you want a fancier look, don’t be afraid to layer it on top of a skirt or dress….the layers of flowy will look super pretty and compliment each other if you tie it all together with the right belt!

P.S. Not only is the Parisian Print Kimono accommodating to different seasons, it also comes in red floral! So darling.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Happy shopping, happy thrifting, happy kimono, happy thursday!

Summer Envy.

I’m really envious of summer right now. And I’m really envious of all you people who live where it’s summer. I just want to walk around barefoot, don’t you? So in my envious state, I found this top and I’m obsessed.  It’s such a great color for summer because this light teal/spearmint color makes you look tan even if you aren’t. I think I love it so much because of the back. It’s a Dion Lee top and it’s seen on this blog. I think it’s the perfect spring/summer top. Can’t wait to wear it!

On a different, less summery note…This skirt from Anthro is to DIE for. I just love it. And it can be worn with tights or without. I would pair it with a blue or purple top and neutral tights and shoes. OR you could wear a cream top and blue shoes. Either way this skirt is amazing.

Happy Weekend!

Confidence is your best accessory!

We all know I love accessories. That’s a known fact. But I love and live by this quote, “Confidence is your best accessory, never leave home without it.” Great right? I always say you must be confident in yourself. You must be confident in your outfit. Nothing is worse than leaving the house feeling insecure about what you’re wearing! You should love what you’re wearing and be confident in your clothes. Confidence is the first thing people notice about you. It’s the first thing they see. If you don’t have that, you don’t have style. Style’s main ingredient is confidence.  Never forget that 🙂 beautiful women. Confident women. We should all be like this! There is no reason not to be!
