T G I F everybody! I’m so happy it’s Friday, and so happy to be able to wear the most comfortable outfit EVER this weekend: joggers, sneakers, and a tee!
I’m sure you’ve noticed that the athleisure trend is on the rise, andthe jogger pant is a new closet must-have that’s dominating street style right now. I can certainly see why: they’re comfortable, lightweight, and make you appear put together without the effort! Win win if you ask me 😉
P.S. I wanted to share a little random side note with you… I received this iPhone charger case for my birthday and have been LOVING it because I can now go a whole 2 days without even plugging my phone in! It’s perfect for traveling and also super sturdy!
Have the best weekend (especially if you’re a mother) and enjoy your casual weekend wear like I know I will be!
If you have yet to notice, now you know: athleisure, which combines athletic clothing and leisure clothing, is the hottest trend to take over the fashion scene right now, and I am all for it! As someone who is obsessed with fitness, any opportunity that’s socially acceptable to go from the gym to brunch, and then out to run errands while still in my same gear is a trend I can fully support! Basically, athletic wear is no longer just limited to the gym…people (like me) are wearing yoga pants and sneakers to grab drinks and even to the office. Since I’m all too familiar with this trend, I’ve formulate my top 3 rules to follow when sporting the athleisure trend:
Choose appropriate footwear: Crisp and clean sneakers are the way to go! I’m not saying you need to continuously buy new shoes, but take good care of the ones you have. (I frequently wash mine on cold and let them air dry).
Invest in quality clothing that mix fashion and function: Keep it practical by investing in clothes that are made of good quality (moisture-wicking, quick drying, and form fitting), and that are neutrals (similar color palette).This will ensure that you can easily mix and match your sporty basics, like these joggers and sweatshirt, with your everyday casual go-to items, like this denim jacket. All it takes is one item to pull the whole sporty look together to be street appropriate.
So, what are you waiting for!? In my opinion, there’s nothing better than wearing a comfortable, low-maintenance outfit that is seamlessly fashionable!
The hustle and bustle (and splurging) of the holidays is officially over and you can read about how I stayed fit during this crazy time of the year here. Now that the New Year is in full swing, there’s a million people hitting the gym daily and trying to reach their fitness goals for 2017. If you are like everyone else out there, you probably start off January really strong- eating healthy and balanced meals, working out multiple times a week, and ultimately feeling pretty good about yourself. Unfortunately for some, this lifestyle will only stick for a few short weeks, and I’m here today to set you up for success to maintain your 2017 fitness goals for the entire year. Keep in mind, I’m not a personal trainer, but I have a passion and love for staying fit and leading a healthy lifestyle. So let’s get this party started:
Do yourself a favor, and buy this planner: I received it as a gift from my brother for Christmas (thanks Ty!), and have been loving using it to keep myself on track. It’s seamless to use, helps me set goals to increase productivity, helps me open up about gratitude, tracks my months/weeks/days, and even holds myself accountable for my exercise of the day. This might sound silly, but wearing new workout gear (like these cute leggings,top, and comfy/affordablesneakers) always motivates me to stay healthy and fit no matter what!
Set long-term goals but also break them down into attainable short-term goals: Because your goal is to make this a lifestyle change and habit, it’s important that you set the right kind of goals in order to be successful. For example, if your goal is to lose 20 lbs this year, break it down into 5 lb increments. Or if your goal is to workout 5-7 times per week, plan out your workouts one week at a time. Start with 2-3 workouts per week and increase your gym days as the weeks go on. This way you can celebrate your small victories and work towards your larger goal!
Write down your goals somewhere visible: It’s important to be able to visualize your goals daily. Whether that be on the refrigerator, on the background of your phone, or on the bathroom mirror. Write them down and post them as a daily reminder to yourself. For example, my “no added sugar” goal is all over the place in my planner, specifically under the Daily Habit section.
Create a healthy lifestyle for yourself, nobody else: It’s important to feel your best from the inside out. When you feel your best, you look your best! 🙂

Hope you all have the best weekend!
