March Fabletics + Pilates update

Pilates ballet stretches cadillac

Another month means another Pilates update. Admittedly, I feel like I don't have much to say this month because I inadvertently took two weeks off of working out! I had every intention of doing some Pilates while I was in Nashville, but I had zero free time, so I just had to let it go. The week afterwards was spent trying to catch my breath and I mentally just had to take a break from extracurricular activities. Sometimes your body has its own way of telling you to slow your roll. I love talking about Pilates though, so I couldn't not share the minor updates since last month!

Neon pumps

Olive top, grey bottoms, neon pumps outfit
Sunnies: TOMS (option) | Necklace: Paperdolls Boutique (c/o) | Bag: Charming Charlie (option) (not similar, but found this adorable bucket bag in olive!) | Top: Banana Republic | Beaded Bracelet stack: Charmed Stacks (similar, similar) | Bottoms: American Eagle AEO Sateen X4 Jegging in Grey | Shoes: Kate Spade "Licorice" (Under $30 options here and here)

I feel like a broken record, but March has been such a doozy of a month! It's already the third week of March, and I can't seem to catch up! Have you ever been so busy that you have absolutely no idea where to start with your to-do list that you just end up sitting in a vegetable state doing none of it? My brain is mush! That week in Nashville has been all consuming both before and after, and I just can't seem to get back to normal for whatever reason! On top of that, the husband has been traveling a lot these last couple of weeks,  which equally throws my own schedule off. I need to just put my big girl pants on and get back into my normal routine!

Olive and coral + light washed denim

Coral and olive outfit, spring transitional outfit
Sunnies: Ray Ban (option) | Necklace: Kendra Scott (c/o) | Jacket: Gap (similar, option, option) | Top: CS Gems (c/o) (use code CARYLEE15 for 15% off!) | Bottoms: American Eagle jegging in "Faint Luster"Booties: Joie (option, budget option)

I wore this outfit for a 6-year old birthday party last weekend, but decided to schedule the post to go live for St. Patrick's Day since I don't own much green. Ok, I'm lying. I own a crap ton of olive, but not much of the kelly green shade. This definitely falls in the olive category vs. the latter, but just go with me on this being appropriate for the holiday, ok?

Nashville: What I wore and what I did

Cocktail Dress: ABS | Bag: Tory Burch | Heels: Valentino "Rockstud"

Okidoke! Here is part 2 of my Nashville posts - you can read all about what I packed and why in Monday's post here. It was such a long but rewarding and fun but exhausting week! My head is still spinning, but I wanted to recap everything we did while it is fresh in my head. This post outlines the exact outfits I wore and with what we filled our days! I was so absent on social media and blogging while I was gone that it is nice to be able to summarize everything for you now! Before I get started, if you want to catch yourself up with what i do for a living - you can read all about it in this post here.

Packing for Nashville

Well, I made it back from Nashville! It was crazy busy to say the least. And I'm talking busy from 8am to midnight. I had two posts scheduled to go live last week and I was hopeful that I would have just a little bit of downtime to be able to put together a post throughout the week that I could then schedule for Friday. As you can see, that didn't happen. I was a bit foolish to think that I would have time, but oh well. Sorry for not preparing you for my absence! I hate not having a normal schedule for you guys, but things happen that aren't in my control, so i can't stress out about that! As promised, I do still want to give you a thorough recap of last week's festivities including what I wore and what I did. That would make for quite a lengthy post, so I am going to split them up into two posts. This post is all about my logic for packing - why I packed what I did based on the agenda I was given.  This also serves as a nice spring time capsule type post. I've done others like these in the past, but this one was geared towards fall and this one was geared towards winter. I've been wanting to do a similar post for spring, so let's get started!

packing for 6 days, packing capsule, packing remix, what's in my suitcase

White pumps and blush skinnies for spring

With spring upon us, I wanted to share a couple of my spring must haves. And I'm not just talking about needing these things for 2017; I'm talking about needing these things spring after spring. First up, the blush/pink pair of skinnies!

Peplum + denim vest

Banana republic crepe tie sleeve peplum, denim vest, leopard pumps, rebecca minkoff regan
Sunnies: TOMS (option) | Vest: Two by Vince Camuto (option) | Necklace: Express | Top: Banana Republic | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff "Regan" (similar) | Bracelet: Kendra Scott "Candice" | Ponte Knit Bottoms: American Eagle | Shoes: BCBG "Jaze" (option, option, option)

About a year ago, Abby posted this outfit of her here, and I loved it! It was screenshot material and I had been wanting to recreate it. Layering the vest over the peplum was a genius idea. Simple, but something I hadn't thought of! The problem was that I didn't have a peplum that worked. Fast forward to one of Banana's recent sales, and I decided to pick up this top because it looked amazing - tie sleeves, peplum, yes and yes! I have a tendency to buy a LOT of button ups and a LOT of tee shirts, but not much in between. I've been making a conscious decision to buy more tops that are in neither category. That's where this top is extra perfect.
