A Few of my Favorite Things

Sale season is here, and it's hard to avoid. Plus, now is the time when all the fall arrivals begin to come into play. I keep stumbling across so many new, amazing pieces that I just had to share some of my favorites with you guys! 

  1. I suddenly hopped on the backpack trend this past week or so, and have been excessively searching for a nice leather backpack that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Of course, the two I included above are a bit out of my price range, but I'm obsessed with them!!! I found this option that is beautiful too, and a little most budget friendly. Plus, I've been searching The Real Real which is having a huge sale right now and has so many great options too.
  2. Cozy cardigans are my #1 piece in the cooler weather, so you know I'll be stocking up on them for the fall. This splurge worthy version is just gorgeous, but I also love this one that's included in the NSale this time around. Better price, and 100% cashmere!
  3. Rag & Bone is having a BIG sale - 40% off all of their sale items. I've been eyeing these booties for the past couple days, trying to convince myself NOT to pull the trigger...
  4. I've been on the hunt for a midi skirt for months and haven't been able to find one yet that I love. Now it's almost too late to grab one - the summer is halfway gone! I have been eyeing a few different styles on Revolve though, including this one, this one, and this one
  5. I'm SUCH a M.Gemi fan all the time, but they just came out with these loafers, and I literally want every single color (specifically the gray, luggage and natural ones). Gorgeous!!!
  6. These mules. They've been all over my Instagram because I cannot get enough of them. Oh, and they're on sale by the way.
  7. I've been on such an Everlane spree recently. They've seriously been killing it with their new slip dress (obsessed with the look, fabric, and PRICE!), the backpacks, and their shoe collection. I've been trying to find a pair of sandals/slides similar to Hermes, and this pair is just perfection.

Athleisure Favorites

I'm so excited about this post, because I going to talk allllllll about my absolute favorite thing: workout clothes! Athleisure has been my thing lately - I don't know if its the cold weather, but I've been wearing leggings and cozies to work more and more (oops!). Don't even try to argue with me - leggings ARE pants. If you know me at all, you'd know that I'd spend my entire salary on stores like Lululemon, Outdoor Voices, Bandier, Carbon 38 and Kit & Ace if I could. I am all about wearing thick, soft, cashmere blend sweatpants that look so good you can throw them on with flats to travel in.. or a wrap that you can throw on after yoga or wear to work... or super soft, amazingly fitting black leggings that would work for an HIIT class or under boots in public.

This isn't any new trend. Girls have been living in workout clothes/athleisure type clothing for a while now. Why not be comfortable and stylish at the same time!? I'm also really lucky that I don't need to get dressed up for work, so I can get away with a Kit & Ace type look on a daily basis. Below are all my favorites and things on my wish list right now as well as my recos from my current closet - there is a range of pretty much everything from my favorite gym tops, to what I love to lounge in.


  • Lululemon Align Pant: I LIVE in these like an embarrassing amount. They are by far the best leggings on the market right now, easily. They're so so soft, hug you perfectly, and are the best weight. I'd recommend sizing down.
  • ADAY Throw and Roll Legging: I feel like this brand is a bit of a newcomer, so not many people know about them. They make a gorgeous super unique legging that fits like a dream and looks SO good on. 
  • Alo Yoga Moto Leggings: THE #1 gym to street staple on the market right now. I love the high rise version - I own both rises, and the high rise tend to stay up much better. 
  • Kit & Ace Cashmere Sweat Pant: My biggest splurge of the winter, and worth every penny. These are insane. So flattering, so cozy, and so chic.


  • Gap: For workout clothes, I really like to invest in my bottoms, and get cheap tops from the Gap. These simple tanks that are super flattering and last. I have two favorite styles: this one, and this one.
  • Outdoor Voices Featherweight Tank: I recently discovered this tank and I'm hooked. It's the softest material ever, and it's such a perfect fit.
  • Athleta Criss Cross Sweatshirt: I wear sweatshirts on a daily basis - its the first thing I throw on when I get home from work. This one has gotten so much use that I literally need to order a new one soon...
  • Kit & Ace Brushed Top: Honestly, I could list the entire Kit & Ace website on here because I love it all, but their Brushed Miskace material is just ridiculously good. It's like a fleece lined tee - but not as heavy as a sweatshirt. I'd take any piece of clothing in this material.


  • Nike Air Zoom Strong: I guess I'm a Nike girls through and through, because all my active shoes are Nike. These are what I use for training, and I LOVE them.
  • Adidas Ultra Boost: I actually don't own this specific pair (I own an older version), but I am lusting after these so hard. I love my older pair - they are so comfortable and the colors are great.
  • Frye Ivy Slip: These are my go-to every day shoes. I saw them a couple weeks ago and had to have them. They are perfect with pretty much everything - you can wear them with dresses, leggings, jeans, you name it. I LOVE these.
