Hi friends! My capsule wardrobe is complete (WOO!) and my closet is clear of all the non-seasonal clutter. It feels SO GOOD. I realized during this process of acquiring actual fall pieces that I've never had a proper fall wardrobe. I normally just re-use my summer pieces and add a light jacket or a hoodie. I've also never planned this much or gone shopping specifically for things that I felt would last me thru the years and would also excite me when it comes to mix and matching with my existing pieces. I feel like I did alright for my first try. More than half of this stuff are things I already owned, excited to give them new life! There's also a about 10 other things (jeans, basic T's) that aren't pictured because they're very old or have since sold out.Read More
This asos jumpsuit has been making the instagram rounds and for good reason. It's a total cutie and super comfy! I'm mildly obsessed with jumpsuits at the moment. I never thought I'd feel more comfortable in a jumpsuit than in anything else. If I'm wearing a comfy jumpsuit I can walk around all day running errands, sight seeing or doing spontaneous dance breaks. I just bought my 6th jumpsuit since the summer and I see no end in sight.
Well, actually *pushes up thick glasses with index finger*, the end is near. This brings me to the discussion of capsule wardrobes. If you aren't familiar, check out these guides here and here. Basically, a capsule wardrobe is an effort to minimize your wardrobe to only 30-ish pieces of clothing that you love and that you wear for 3 months (or a season). During this time you mix and match your same 30 pieces and avoid any more shopping. TUN TUN TUNNNNN. Yep, NO SHOPPING.Read More
Hi friends! I'm back from our trip to New York and I'm excited to show you some of my favorite snapshots from the adventure. Once again, all of these photos were taken on an iPhone so the quality isn't amazeballs on some of them but that's okay with me because I didn't have to lug a fancy camera around!
New York was a whirlwind to say the least. Each day was jam-packed and walk-heavy. I injured my foot after the second day of walking but I made it thru with some athletic tape and a slower pace on the rest of the days. So worth it! Shout out to my husband for wrapping my foot so good so that I wasn't in as much pain.
My nutshell of our New York experience is that I loved all of the history, views, architecture, pizza, skyline and the Greenpoint neighborhood. So happy to get to experience it. My next goal is to see New York at Christmas time-- ahh how magical that has to be! I basically want to relive Home Alone 2, anyone else?

Growing up, I used to give my mom so much sass for always buying black and neutral clothing for herself. She'd tell me, "I know it's boring but I love these colors!" I used to think she was nuts because anytime I shopped for myself I went for the more color- the better! In the last few years though, I've realized the method to her madness and realized she wasn't so crazy after all. Neutrals and blacks are so classic and flattering! Now, I immediately gravitate towards any neutral when I shop, it's a no brainer. My mom would laugh at my current closet (which is mostly blacks with only a few pops of color) and say something like "COMO LA MADRE!" which means "like your mother!" in Spanish.Read More
I've been wanting to write more about health & wellness since I devote so much time and energy to it in real life. But there's been a recent shift I have to be honest about, I've been obsessing over the negatives. I know I've shared when I was working out daily, lifting weights and eating super clean and feeling overall like a rockstar but I want to share my struggles too.
I plateaued on my fitness goals a couple months back and I'll be honest it deflated me. I started looking at where my body was in terms of weight and strength and feeling hella disappointed that somehow no matter how hard I tried it seemed like the universe was saying "this is your best you, sorry about your luck!" and I took it real hard. I ate poorly and exercised less. I'd obsess over style bloggers and Instagram celebs with model bodies while sinking further and further into a pit - you know the one. Scrolling thru feeds while the jealously consumed me.Read More
