Today I had a performance of a scene of Macbeth and decided with my group that the witches would wear all black. I’m wearing a black cardigan, black camisole, black scarf, black leather pants and black riding boots.
In this collection, Donna Karan combines fur and leather with beautiful dress designs. The sheer fabric in many of the dress also gives a sexy and sultry feel which is perfect for Valentine’s Day(hint hint). Here is a link to the full collection. Here are some of my favorite looks:
Valentine’s Day is soon approaching and so is the anxiety of finding the perfect outfit, makeup and hair for this special day with your significant other. Many thoughts go through your head, deciding whether that dress is too fancy or those jeans are too casual. To help calm that anxiety, I put together 3 different outfits for a casual date, a fancy date and a lighter fancy date. Continue reading →
In this collection designers Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri came together to do a “Hansel and Gretel” inspired collection. This collection combines ordinary pieces and with more costume like pieces. I especially love the simple makeup, matching stockings and headbands. Check out the link here for all the looks in the collection. Here are my favorites:
Today I wore a red 3/4 sleeve shirt, blue jean vest, leather jeans, black scarf and black furry wedges. I felt kind of rocker chic with a soft edge.
I also ran 6.2 mi on the treadmill this weekend while watching Thor. It felt awesome and I can’t wait to hit 7. I’m running a 5k on Saturday(going to have a recap on Sunday) and got the bib and extra things but ended up getting the wrong bib. I’m gonna try and get my dad to switch it out tomorrow or change it at the race.
For the past few weeks I’ve been having pains in my foot when walking but not running. I really want to get rid of the pain so I’m icing it but I’ve decided that if it’s not mostly gone by the last week of February then I can’t run the half marathon in May. I’m really hoping it goes away because I’ve already started working on a training program for the 12 weeks before the race.
On a last and exciting note, I was featured on Be in Style’s Best of the Web! Check out the post here. So flattered to have been chosen and loved working with them.
New York Fashion Week starts on tomorrow. What shows do you want me to cover? Do you want me to stick with trends of each collection? What do you guys want to see? Leave it in the comments!
The newest trend this season is black and white! We’ve seen it on the runways and we’ve seen it on the celebs, and now it’s your turn. There are so many ways to wear black and white but my personal favorite is the black and white dresses. Not only can they be super stylish, but they can also be super flattering. Try out one of the many of the options I have in the collage(find the links to the actual dresses on my polyvore) or google black and white dresses and thousands will come up. Make this trend your own and add accessories to really personalize it.
Which is your favorite black and white dress from the collage? Do you have any of your own favorite dresses(post a link!)? Leave it in the comments!!
Loved my outfit for today! I was a skater girl. I wore a navy blue hollister sweatshirt, a gray cami, a purple/blue/pink shirt, blue jeans and my new DCs(got them in November but first time wearing them). I love how simple and comfortable this outfit is but still remains cute.
On another note, this past weekend I ran 5 miles straight!! Such a huge accomplishment for someone who could barely run 1 mile. I’m also planning on running a 5k on February 9 to kinda of do a time check and see where I’m at pace wise outdoors. This will also help determine a goal time for a half marathon I’m thinking about doing. I found one mid-May that I think I want to train for. I’d have to start training the last week of February and am thinking about chronicling it on this blog. What do you guys think?
Have any of you guys ran a half marathon before? Do any of you plan on it? What was your experience like?
When wearing sweaters in the winter, you may sometimes get what I call a draft when lifting your arms or moving around alot. I have found the perfect way to combat this. Try wearing a camisole under your sweaters! Tuck it into your pants and you kill two birds with one stone, no sees your panties(I see London I see France) and you keep warm all day, even when moving around alot.
