How do you take a basic sweater to the next level? Cover it completely in FRINGE. Then, the perfect pairing of a leather mini skirt and OTK boots to finish off the winter look. Since this sweater is out of stock, I have added links to other fringe-tastic ones!

You guys… 2017 is less than 48 hours away!! I have been making a short list of measurable and realistic goals, so I will be sharing how I will rock next year in a few days! I want to welcome 2017 the way that I want the rest of my year to look, so I will be surrounding myself with good people tomorrow night and starting new year’s morning with a mega workout at my gym!

Be safe and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

Dress Well, Live Well

img_1763


As an enthusiast of anything fitness related, what really motivates me to hit the pavement and put 110% into my workouts is a cute, very sweat-resistant, and durable outfit… and maaaybe the rush of endorphins and energy that I feel afterwards! Looking good and dressing well should not just be reserved for special occasions. What I wear to exercise, work, or even run errands in sets the tone for the day that I will have. So, I put something on each day that I feel confident and beautiful in. With the right outfit and mindset, I look and feel To the Nines!

To making every day an amazing day to match our amazing selves.

The holidays are here! I love this time of year so much, because it means spending time with the people that I care about. Last night, my work holiday party was at Main Event. We felt like kids again bowling granny-style and left-handed, challenging ourselves on the ropes course above the arcade on tight ropes and beams, and playing laser tag! TONIGHT… the celebrations continue!

Counting my blessings aaand down the days, until I see my family!

Let’s Rent the Runway!

renttherunway7


Ever dreamed of owning a faaancy designer piece for a day? With Rent the Runway, you can! Their website offers a slew of gowns, dresses, tops, bottoms, purses, and accessories right off the runway. These items can be yours for four or eight days, and the option to select a second size for free ensures you will be dressed To the Nines for the occasion.

I’ll be honest. I loved this jumpsuit so much that I wore it twice. The thick fabric felt so soft against my skin. The cutout, cropped wide leg, and sash were the ultimate feminine touches. Ooh, I was swimming in compliments. :)

Aaaand…

For that burgundy beauty? My boyfriend got it for me, when we visited the Goorin Bros. store in Austin, TX. Let me tell you… we spent HOURS in there. He definitely did not expect for me to search that long. With so many beautiful and unique designs, I had to try them all!! Availability in various sizes allowed for the perfect fit and many contenders. Their hats are also made of the utmost quality. I mean, this one took five days to weave! Goorin Bros. has been around for over 100 years, and I have a feeling that this hat will last just as long. Thank you, baby!

Matching Set

Best. Deal. EVER.

When I discovered this woven two-piece (on clearance!), I quickly realized that I actually picked up three outfits. Mind blown. W h a t ? The top with black skinny jeans and the skirt with a crop top?! Score!!

My lovely lady, mom, was in town from Florida. Since we love a good shopping adventure, I had to introduce her to Nordstrom Rack. As we rummaged through all the clothing racks and tried on pairs upon pairs of shoes, she squealed, “I love this place!!” I smiled the widest of smiles. She also took in this medium gem to fit my XS frame in mere seconds.

Takeaway? My mom is the gem.

As we approach the holiday season, I am reminded of the many things I am fortunate to have: good health, loving family, beautiful home, supportive friends, a car, wonderful boyfriend, sweetest furbaby, the best fur nephew, and the opportunity to celebrate the holidays with my family. I remember these as I excitedly look forward to next week!!!

I also thank YOU for reading. :)

Make today a great day!

Denim Jacket

Have a dinner or a party to attend right after work? Take an essential, little white dress from day to night. For day, dress the LWD down with a denim jacket and fringe sandals. To transition the look into the night, lose the jacket and throw on some heels!

This GAP denim jacket is a wardrobe staple that will be worn for years to come.

Nike Unlimited Colorway

The summer competitions are here!

I had the opportunity to try a pair of Air Zoom Pegasus 33 from the new unlimited colorway collection from Nike, before they were released yesterday! They arrived just in time for tonight’s opening ceremony. Let me tell ya… they are as pretty as they are functional. This is my running shoe, because of its light weight, major support, and responsive cushioning, which all help me run my quickest! This unlimited colorway collection has Nike’s distinct highlighter yellow ‘volt’ fade into their ‘hyper-punch pink’. This gradient of vibrant shades was inspired by brightly colored birds and shiny beetles that inhabit the tropical rain forests of Brazil and represents unlimited athletic abilities and unlimited inspiration that can be found in our surroundings.

Just looking at them… I was immediately inspired.
