Lookbook: Lace & Scallops + LOFT Lace tee review

It's been a crazy few weeks and haven't had time to put together my weekly outfit posts (or even take photos of my outfits) so that will have to come later but wanted to share my latest favorite buy, this lace tee!

Leggings for Every Workout

Nothing beats a pair of leggings in terms of comfort, whether that goes for working out or running errands. I’m obsessed and have a pair for every occasion and activity. Take a look at some of my favorites.

The lux shiny finish of the Lululemon Shine Tight takes you from your studio pilates class to grabbing coffee with the girls. It’s even dressy enough to pair with a metallic cami for a night out. 

Once Winter hits, it’s harder to be active outside. Pull on the fleece-lined Zella Power Fleece Legging so you can keep logging in those miles on snow-covered trails.

The Adidas by Stella McCartney Tight Leggings are so fittingly reminiscent of ballerina tights that they’re a must for any barre class. The mesh panels offer breathability as you get flexible with each move.

For any kind of indoor activity, like a super-sweaty, tough spinning class, I reach for the Lululemon Illumina Crop. It has a shorter length than some of my other crops, keeps me cool with mesh panels and deep side pockets. The burgundy color is different in a good way.

Solow Leggings with Scallop Lace are super fun and cute, which is all you really need for lounging around on a weekend afternoon. No yoga class required, although these would be sure to earn you more than a few compliments.

What do you look for in leggings?

Altuzarra for target: my picks and review

I was in Chicago for most of last week and when I got back I saw an ad about the Altuzarra for Target collection so after my husband and I grabbed breakfast, I stopped in to check it out.  I had seen the trench coat and boots in the commercials which is what I went to look for but of course, after talking to a sales person, she told me that those were the first to go and people had been in line already in the morning.  I still was able to find some cute pieces so thought I'd share with you guys!

What to wear this fall: Boots + Outerwear

The two things that I can't wait to wear during the fall are boots and outerwear.  I've been doing some shopping for both and here's my essentials for my fall wardrobe.

I love over the knee boots but I prefer a heel with them as it completely elongates my short legs whereas a flat over the knee boot somehow makes my legs look even shorter!  But I can't do without my flat boots as well and I look for a pair that will slip over jeans easily and hits me right below the knee.  The bootie is always a favorite as I can wear it with my skinny jeans tucked in or over, or paired with a skirt and tights is always a great look.
