Pastels with Target

I don’t think I’ve ever embraced pastels as much as I am this season. I typically stick with a neutral color palette all year round, but the soft and muted candy colored hues have really stolen my heart. There’s nothing that says spring more like the easy playful spirit of pastels, right? Also, I’ve been wearing white denim A LOT. If you’re in the market for an inexpensive, on trend, non-see-through pair, these ankle jeans from Mossimo are really nice. For $28 they’re an absolute steal and they’re incredibly soft and comfortable!

Who else is digging pastels for spring?

Fitness Goals with Adidas

I’ve never been the one who hates the whole workout thing. I’ve done something physical practically my entire life, so be honest, it comes very natural and it always makes me feel good. Whether it be at the gym, on the track, or playing a sport, I would 100% rather do it with Mike, but when I have to go at it solo I see it as great quality me-time. It’s the best time to clear my head, slow down, and focus on what my body needs. With so much going on, I’ve come to really appreciate this time alone. With that said, it’s also a lot harder to find that time to workout and sneak away from everything else going on in life (work / blog / boyfriend / dog / chores / cooking / cleaning… you get my drift).

Since I kind of took most of last year off from regularly working out and was/still in the worst shape I’ve ever been physically, I decided to set some fitness goals before summer approaches and our big trip to Hawaii in November. Seeing as though time is my major issue, my main goal is to find the time to actually get to the gym (starting with twice a week). This means setting the time and day into my planner, not just going when I have the time, and making it a priority. My other goal is to tone up and become stronger. I’ve lost a lot of muscle, I can see it and feel it. There’s nothing worse than feeling weak and not capable especially when I’m still in my 20’s. #bringontheweights

I’m thrilled to start working on my fitness goals with some stylish pieces from adidas. Nothing helps get you to the gym like cute workout clothes, right? I’ve tried my fair share of workout leggings and these TechFit long tights are at the top of my list. First and foremost the length fits well, which tends to be my biggest challenge. They’re also incredibly comfortable and lightweight, perfect for those brisk morning runs. The Energy Boost 2.0 running shoes completely surprised me in the best possible way. They’re not only ridiculously comfortable, but super cute too! And then there’s my favorite, the pullover. The adidas Ultimate pullover is a bit long, but so soft, lightweight, and the ideal piece for this in-between spring and summer weather.

I like my workout clothes to be simple, functional, but stylish at the same time and that’s exactly what you get when it comes to adidas. Be sure to check out the rest of their training pieces here!

San Francisco Favorite | Blue Bottle Coffee

I’m sure you’ve probably had a cup of Blue Bottle coffee, seen it on Instagram from your favorite blogger, or have had friends and family post it on Facebook. It’s definitely a must-stop while visiting the city and for me a symbol of San Francisco. Out of the many locations it’s served, my favorite has to be the kiosk on Linden St. in Hayes Valley. It’s quaint and cute and nestled into a small alley. I’ll typically order a simple black coffee, but on occasion will splurge on their vegan mocha. Yes, you heard it right, vegan mocha! Although I’ve never had a regular mocha, friends tell me you can’t tell the difference. I’m just happy I have the option, but the fact that it taste amazing makes it all that more special.

The coffee is strong and fresh and is a true representation of James Freeman’s vision of the company. “We roast coffee on vintage gear, put it in compostable bags, and still get it to our customers within 48 hours. I will only use the finest, most delicious and responsibly sourced beans.”

If you’re ever in the Bay Area, a taste of Blue Bottle coffee is a must! It’s an experience in itself and if you’re a coffee lover, you won’t be disappointed!

been loving all things free people as of late

sunday looked like this…

With Mike out of town all last week and a very busy schedule for myself, this weekend was all about catching up on shows, wine, and relaxation. As much as I love a packed schedule on my days off, sometimes those free-nowhere-to-be weekends are the best! Mike is on spring break this week, which means my office will finally get some TLC. I’m not sure how far we’ll get, but I definitely need to figure out some more storage options. Stuff is everywhere and it’s driving me nuts! Stay tuned for some sneak peaks on Instagram.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

As much as we all thought the boyfriend jean trend would come and go, it’s still going strong 3 or so years later, which to be honest, makes me happy. Not only is it one of the hottest trends right now, but the boyfriend style has evolved and become a staple in our wardrobes. You no longer have one shape and size to choose from (thank you!), we have options, which means there’s a boyfriend style out there for everyone! Today I’m highlighting some of my favorites and the most versatile styles.

  • Classic oversized + ripped-  this style tends to work for those girls with height. Although I love how these look, they tend to be way to oversized.
  • Light wash- perfect for spring and summer!
  • Relaxed fit without the rips- this style is nice for the office or for those of you who don’t love the major distressed look, but still want to get the relaxed boyfriend feel.
  • Skinny boyfriend- these have become my favorite. They look great on a more petite frame. You get the relaxed fit without losing your figure.

In whatever form, I think the boyfriend style is here to stay! Seeing as though I’m a sucker for anything oversized, comfortable, and a wee bit masculine, I’m all for it. What’s your favorite boyfriend jean style?

In other news, I’ve teamed up with the girls from Divine Caroline to bring you a $500 Pin & Win Pinterest contest. Repin the look that fits your personality and enter for a chance to win! Get more details on my casual cool look here.
