One of my favorite trends right now is LEOPARD! Did you see how it just popped back up overnight? It’s like we woke up one day and all of a sudden, everything was leopard again. I for one am obsessed. Leopard or cheetah print to me is one of those tried and true fashion trends that never really left us, but it’s definitely back full force right now.
When I was younger, I think like 15 or 16, my absolutely favorite pair of shoes were these satin leopard wedges from Guess. They were peep toe, had a bow on top, and were the fucking CUTEST. I was literally obsessed with them for YEARS (still am…) but had to stop wearing them once the fabric started rubbing off on the back. Don’t you hate when that happens? I tried for years to find a replacement and had no luck. Nothing was as cute or as comfortable as those shoes. Ugh.
I loved them so much that I actually never got rid of them. I couldn’t wear them anymore but couldn’t bring myself to toss them. They are still at my parents house to this day, and my nieces wear them when they’re playing dress up. It’s pretty special to see them have gone full circle. Maybe one day I’ll have a daughter to wear them…
POINT IS, leopard is everywhere and it’s the shit. If you don’t have some leopard print in your closet, you better get to shoppin!
The September Ellie set has to be one of my favorites so far- I love the camo print and the versatility of this outfit. I’ve worn all of these pieces together and separately several times since I’ve gotten them. This white top is perfect with jeans and sneakers, and the camo pants are so comfy that I’ve worn them on my nightly neighborhood walks with a sweatshirt and flip flops. SO EASY!
You know all about my love for Ellie in general (via this post, and all of my IG posts) but despite all of my cute leggings and sports bras, it’s been a struggle for me to find a workout routine and STICK TO IT! Ugh, I’ve been terrible all summer. I kept saying I was going to join a gym- didn’t happen. I wanted to sign up for kickboxing classes- didn’t happen. I wanted to get back into Platefit- didn’t happen. I think you get my point… I’ve put ALL of it off and honestly, haven’t done much more than a few hikes here and there all summer long. Not proud of it, but I’m not going to dwell on it.
Instead, I’m committing to a 30 day yoga challenge. Yup, and I’m posting it here so that I can actually be held accountable. I’m going to follow up with y’all in 30 days to tell you how far I made it. And in hopes of really making this happen, I’ve pulled Rob into this little plan as well- he’s committed to joining me in the morning, or after work to get some yoga time in. We’ll just be doing it from our living room via YouTube, but I think it’s actually going to be something I’ll be able to commit to 100%.
I’ve been seeing off the shoulder styles popping up more and more lately, I don’t know about you. Off the shoulder isn’t a new or novel idea, but I feel like it’s more of a trend this year than previous ones. Not going to lie, they can be a little annoying when they pop up over your shoulder, or fall down, when you’re moving around…but a cute enough trend to actually get over that!
I found this top at Nordstrom and it’s since sold out on line, but I put together a few other favorites below that you can shop. My top is a neutral pale blush color and print, but there are so many cute and bold options out that I’m DYING to get my hands on! You can get ties on the shoulders too, long sleeve or short, smocked or not, etc. The option are endless and you can find such cute options at literally ALL price points.
I cannot believe it’s already MDW! It’s crazy how fast time is flying by. I feel like we were just in Mexico for New Year’s… but regardless, I’m happy Summer is around the corner! I’ve been dying for warm, sunny weather and to bust out all of my dresses and tank tops.
This weekend is obviously a huge shopping time so I wanted to be sure to share with you some of the BEST deals that are going on and you don’t want to miss! Literally, I think everyone has a sale happening but some are just better than others. So here we go!
Hi friend! How are you? If you’re following along on Instagram, you saw that I posted this dress the other day and I was raving about how much I love maxi dresses and jumpsuits because they’re EASY! They’re a one-and-done outfit. They make life so much easier when you’re getting ready in a hurry, or if you’re lazy like I am… (Also, if you missed the post, you can find it here).
So, because of my love of all things easy, I thought the perfect blog post for y’all would be to share a TON of maxi dresses I’m loving for Spring and Summer. Throw a denim jacket on with any of these, sneakers or heels, and you’re DONE. Boom, out of the house in 5 minutes. Nothing better!
My dress is from Nordstrom, and you can shop it directly right here, but note that it runs BIG. I am wearing a small, and honestly I really need like an XS or an XXS. I don’t know why, but it’s gigantic. Ideally I wouldn’t wear this with a bra because it does have a open back, but if I didn’t everyone in Ojai would’ve gotten a free show. So proceed with caution…
