• The most comfortable jumpsuit EVER styled 3 ways…

    This jumpsuit was such a happy little surprise! I went into Lou and Gray for sweatpants (also awesome) and this jumpsuit was in the dressing room so I HAD to try it on. You guys… it is FLEECE on the inside. Talk about the most comfortable thing EVER. It is so adorable and flattering and can be styled so many ways! It all starts with this Lou & Gray Plush Crossover Jumpsuit!   Perfect daytime look for running all the errands, lunch out or heading to the office.   Gap Denim Jacket – A total classic. Since the jumpsuit is fleece on the inside you only need a light layer. J/Slides…

  • September Favorites…

    Ah, September, that’s a wrap. September is always a jam packed month coming off of summer. I feel like I have holed up a bit this month so there are a lot ( A LOT) of books on this list…   Click on corresponding number to shop item! Mostly Plants: 101 Delicious Flexitarian Recipes from the Pollan Family – Loved this book.. the Pollan family doesn’t disappoint with inventive recipes. I love the idea of a vegetable forward menu and this ” Felxitarian” cookbook fits the bill. Good Housekeeping Cookbook: 1,200 Triple-Tested Recipes – Triple tested… really enough said. Everything you ever wanted to know how to cook is in…

  • Fall Fashion: Leopard

    Leopard is everywhere! And for good reason… it is basically a neutral in my book. A friend and I were just talking about how leopard is THE print for Fall. And good news;  you have so many options out there to add a little or a lot to your look. Even better news is that options seem to come in all price points… I mean just in case you don’t want to really invest in a leopard coat (but there are a few REALLY chic ones!)… but mark my words, leopard print isn’t going anywhere! (And, yes, #17 may be technically a “cheetah print” but who cares!) Find my picks below!…

  • Fall Fashion: Foliage Color Palette

    Thank you so much to everyone who expressed such kind words after this week’s earlier post… it is so appreciated. Now, on a lighter note, because I have to keep the rest of this week light… I love scrolling through a new season’s fashion… Lately I have noticed that there are so many pieces that appeal to me that are the colors of Fall foliage. Not my typical color palette but all the beautiful warm tones make you think of pumpkin picking, apple cider and raking leaves. I love it all paired with denim, navy and ivory! Below find the pieces that I am loving in this foliage color palette!…

  • Fall Fashion: The Sweatshirt Dress

    One of my favorite new pieces for Fall is undoubtedly the Sweatshirt Dress (I own #1 pictured above!). Incredibly comfortable and cozy while still looking quite put together. I pair mine with sandals while it is still warm and will move on to flats and sneakers and then booties with tights/leggings. There are some great options out there… some high end and very excitingly some really cute options for under $100!

  • August Favorites…

    We were all over the place this month! A little bit of travel and sadly lots of fevers, infections and antibiotics! The month feels a bit like a blur and here we are back at school… where did Summer go? It was fun while it lasted! See below for what I have been loving this month and using on repeat! Olaplex No 6 Bond Smoother – I am an Olaplex convert… I talked about the bond builder, shampoo and conditioner in my July Favorites and then I tried this leave in. These products have totally repaired my hair- I no longer have beach fried hair! Everlast Pro Style Training Gloves…

  • July Favorites…

    My favorites this month pretty much revolve around the beach… and exercising. All things Summer. Some I have talked about before so they are old favorites but also some new finds… how had I never tried on Beyond Yoga before? Click on item name to shop!  1. Beyond Yoga Alloy Ombre Leggings – these literally yelled my name (as my sister in law proclaimed!) when I saw them and they are sooooo good and that metallic splatter detail is perfect. Uber flattering and ridiculously comfortable; also very breathable for these hot Summer work outs! 2. Beyond Yoga Alloy Ombre Double Back Bra – Okay, a little matchy matchy but I like…

  • Summer of the jumpsuit…

    I have been loving jumpsuits since last Fall and I can safely say that they are officially the the easiest outfit of the Summer. Like with a dress, you can put together an outfit in no time; they are so simple to dress up or down. Unlike a dress, you can pretty much do anything in a jumpsuit… run after a small child, easily sit in the grass or the sand and most importantly (at least to me!) you can ride a bike in a jumpsuit! (Okay, maybe I would not ride a bike in #10, but it is my mode of summer transportation most nights!) Cropped, wide leg, prints,…

  • Kearsley Lloyd on Sun Protection

    Sun protection in the hot summer months is crucial! Beach time, golf courses, tennis matches, amusement parks; we all spend so much time outside!
