Glik's Shopping Haul

Disclosure: Although Glik's is sponsoring this post and provided me with a gift card to shop their Edwardsville, IL store, all opinions expressed are my own!

If you're local to the St. Louis metro east area, then chances are you have heard of Glik's! What you may not know though is that they have over 60 locations in 10 states around the country and you can also Shop Glik’s website! There is a definitely a "small town" feel to the store with trendy, boutique-y pieces, but you can still find the big brands you're familiar with like Free People, William Rast, North Face, and Alex and Ani.

I've met some of the Glik's team at past St. Louis Fashion Week events, and I've been following them on Instagram ever since. What's funny is I was thinking that it would be great to collaborate with them - I love supporting small, local businesses when it fits my blog, and their style is definitely something I could relate to. Within the week of me thinking this, I found an email in my inbox asking if I wanted to partner with them. If only all my random thoughts came to fruition like this!!

Fall essentials: The statement pant

Disclosure: Banana Republic reached out to me to participate in their fall essentials campaign! Although they are sponsoring this post, all opinions expressed are my own.

Even though it was 90-degrees again this weekend, fall is definitely here. Or at least it is hard to deny that it's coming! Everyone is taking last minute summer trips and all the retailers have been pushing their fall stuff. Let's be real, retailers have been pushing their fall stuff since July!! But now that October is less than two weeks away, it's time to get super serious about fall and figuring out where those gaps are in your fall wardrobe.

Plaid wrap top: 4 ways

Happy Monday! I'm excited for a week of no travel!! Last week was super hectic with 3 different trips plus being sick, one ear that never popped from a plane ride, having my girl time, oh and having zero voice. I'm glad I went to Urgent Care before I left for Boulder because I know my symptoms would still be lingering had it not been for the antibiotics and cough meds! Anyway, I'm feeling much, much better today because my girl time is basically over, voice is 80% there, and I haven't had to take a cough drop in two full days. #winning Let's get on with today's outfit!

August Pilates Update

Well, I have not done a proper update on my Pilates certification in what feels like forever, so I figured it was time to do just that. It also works out quite well because 1) I tried Lululemon leggings for the first time ever (yes, I've finally made it to 2000 and late) and 2) Toesox sent me an overabundance of goodies and I had to try and at least share a couple of those products with you! Ok, let's get started.
