Macy's Try-On Session

Hope everyone had a great St. Patrick's Day weekend!! We celebrated on Saturday - went to the parade downtown followed by some corned beef and cabbage and green beverages! Yesterday was a chill day for us, so I thought I would use that time to go for a little shopping spree! As I mentioned in last week's post, I will be hosting a spring fashion event at Macy's on Saturday, March 23rd from 1pm to 3pm at West County Mall in St. Louis! As part of my partnership with them, Macy's was generous enough to gift me a $150 gift card to buy an outfit for the event! I figured I would take you shopping with me, show you everything I was interested in, and share try-on photos! I don't want to ruin any surprises, so you'll have to wait until next Saturday to see what I ended up buying! But in the meantime, this is everything I had my eye on! Let's get started!

Pilates lately

I've had a draft saved for awhile now about anything and everything Pilates related, so I can give you guys an update on where I am as it relates to Pilates! I'm still teaching in addition to my full time job, and I'm still loving it. I had to take a break from teaching the entire month of January when I was on voice rest for laryngitis, and I have to say, giving up teaching was the hardest thing I had to give up - over coffee and alcohol! So you know it's serious! Teaching is such great therapy for me, and a good stress relief from my day job. I never leave a class I have taught without feeling refreshed and uplifted, so not having that for a few weeks was... well.... sad for me, so I'm happy to have it back! Here are a few other things that have happened over the last few months.

Save the date! Macy's Spring Fashion Event

Outfit details--- Scarf: Macy's (current colors here) | Vest: American Rag | Top: Gap | Bottoms: American Eagle | Boots: Coach (other options here)

Hope everyone had a great weekend! I ended up having a sick day on Friday. I was fighting something a bit all last week, and it finally came to a head Thursday evening. Just a bad cold, nothing serious, but I slept all day Friday and have been slowly recovering ever since! That said, I won't take up too much of your time, but I did want to give you a heads up about a Spring Fashion Event I'm hosting with Macy's later this month!

Packing for 10 days in Europe

packing for 10 days of europe in the spring

Ever since we got back from Mexico, I've been hyper-focused on Europe and making sure I have everything I need to pack! We are going for 10 days and will be visiting Paris, Normandy, Amsterdam, and Rome. Yep! Seriously SO excited. I obviously want to feel cute in my outfits, but I really just wanted to bring basics with which I could easily throw endless outfits together. Since it will be spring, we expect the weather to be in the 60s, so light layers were also a must for me. I am a horrible last minute packer, but felt this trip was too epic to leave up to chance! So, here is everything I am planning to bring!

Styling a varsity stripe top + voice update

I styled this top for CS Gems because they were having a lightening deal sale on it while I was gone last week in Mexico. Unfortunately, it's not on their site anymore, so I'm sorry you all are missing out on it! However, I wanted to share it anyway because I feel it styles very similarly to a varsity stripe top, and varsity stripes seem to be a trend that is coming back along with other 90s inspired styles. I also wanted to use this opportunity to give you an update on my voice/ laryngitis situation!

Mexico 2019 - What I Wore

All inclusive resort dinner outfit
-- Outfit details below --

Alright! Post 3 of my Mexico 2019 series!  If you missed the other two posts, you can read all about my sister-in-law's wedding HERE and every last detail of the resort HERE. Ironically, I didn't feel that I took as many photos on this trip that I normally do, but I still had to separate all my content into three different posts! This post is dedicated to everything I packed/ wore. In general, my focus was bathing suits. I think I brought 3 extra suits than I actually needed. Otherwise, I threw a ton of tee shirts, off the shoulder tops, and shorts in a bag and called it a day! I did bring a couple of dresses knowing we usually have a couple of nicer dinners. Anyway, let's get started!

Mexico 2019 - The Resort

message beach hat pool photo

I can't stop thinking about Mexico. That trip was very well placed in terms of timing and very much needed. I realize we do a fair bit of travel, but one FULL week? That's pretty rare. I was really good and turned off my work email, too, so I was 100% fully committed to relaxing and detoxing my mind. My last post was post 1 of 3 in my Mexico installment posts and it was all about the wedding day! Today's post will give you a little bit more info about the resort itself, so let's get started!
