The Style Theory

     If you haven’t already, you need to check out The Style Theory! They have adorable, unique pieces that are currently on-trend. This suede jacket is from ASTR. It is the perfect layering piece and I love the fact that the color can be paired with black or brown. I had my eyes on this jacket for a while. I love ASTR and their jackets. I have a few sweaters, that I purchased that have lasted a long time. For the price, the quality is amazing. I paired this jacket with a white button up blouse, a pair of ripped skinnies from BLANKNYC and my black booties from Steve Madden. I am OBSESSED with the buttery soft feel of this jacket. If you are looking for a neutral, lightweight jacket for the Spring, then this is the perfect piece. I definitely have an obsession with jackets (too many that I need a separate cabinet for them) but I couldn’t resist this one. Thanks to The Style Theory for adding another staple to my wardrobe.

Can you even believe that Valentine’s Day is a week away? Stay tuned for my V-day look. 
XOXO,

More Than Just a Pair of Yoga Pants

    When like hands you lemons, WHY we pray that they are Lulu. Anyone who knows me, knows how obsessed I am with Lululemon. Does it cost $100 for a pair of leggings? Well yes, they do but there is a way to shop Lululemon that is more affordable and will leave you with leggings that last over 5+ years. It’s not easy to admit that I have quickly collected over 20 pairs of leggings over the years but they have lasted me through rehearsals and every audition. Later in the week I plan on showing you #whatiwear to dance auditions. 

QUALITY:  I have owned numerous skirts, leggings, sports bras and zip ups from Nike, Under Armor and Victoria Secret but I quickly became a lulu lover when I realized that Lululemon stands so strongly behind their products. Let me tell you a little story…when I bought my first pair of lulu crops (Wunder Under) I noticed immediate pilling on the inside of the pants. I thought to myself, $88 pants should not be doing this. I called my local store and they told me to come directly in with the pants. Right then and there they damaged out the pants and gave me a brand new pair. I couldn’t believe it! I love the guest experience and the fact that they stood behind their product. You most definitely do not get that type of experience at other stores.
 CONFIDENCE:  Well it must be true what they say…When you feel confident you perform confidently. When I walk into the audition room with 500 girls, taller and probably skinnier than me, I want to look my best. There is no other activewear that I feel comfortable moving in and getting my sweat on in. I definitely will recommend some of the Lulu essentials to start off with in another post. Because shopping there for your first time can be quite overwhelming.
 LIFESTYLE:   When I walk into shop at Lululemon, at least one employee asks me what I do to sweat and is always so interested in my career/ what I am shopping for. It is cool to see what events they have going on in their community and the inspiring goals each employee has set for themselves posted up on the 

wall. I found it to be more of a community than just a store to buy expensive yoga pants in. 

WE MADE TOO MUCH: Wishing there was a sale section on Lululemon’s website? Well THERE IS! For those of you who don’t know, there is a section called, "We Made Too much". This is where all of their markdown items are. They basically markdown anything that they had too much of in the stores. Sometimes, I’ve found a basic black pair of pants and some cute crop tops too! It is absolutely worth checking out and even visiting your local store to see their markdown section. After stocking up on the black essentials, I found that this was the best and affordable way for me to add to my collection. 
RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT: Lastly, I wanted to mention about research and development. There are some pretty cool perks to being a yoga instructor, dance teacher, college coach or anything type of instructor. Be sure to visit your local store to discuss possibilities and how this can benefit you! 
Comment below with any questions and would love to hear some of your favorite activewear! 
xoxo,

Love Your Melon

            Everyone meet my sweet Havanese, Coco! She was a gift to me back in high school and is my best bud. Coco Chanel and I love giving back and especially to children. This beanie is so adorable and will keep you warm in the chilly winter days to come. Love Your Melon’s mission is to donate a hat to every child battling cancer in America. Also 50% of the profits go to research for pediatric cancer. There is nothing I want more than to donate or do anything possible to help provide more research to children battling this terrible disease. It breaks my heart but also warms it knowing there are organizations such as LYM that are bringing a smile to a little girl or boy’s face. The beanies come with or without pom poms and they also make an adorable baseball cap as well. I will continue to support LYM and I look forward to purchasing a few more for the winter! HELP FIGHT THE BATTLE

Tied up in bell sleeves

          I am loving this bell sleeve sweater from Vanilla Sky Stores. If you are from Eastern NY, I suggest checking out one of their stores on the Island. Each location has a variety of different things and I leave every visit with some beautiful finds. My favorite location is Greenvale, NY!
        The bow detail on the sleeves adds an adorable, chic and girly touch to the chunky knit. I paired this sweater with a frayed hem denim jean. They are super comfortable, with a high waist band which is perfect next to the the cropped sweater. I haven’t taken off  my Adidas Gazelle sneakers in ivory since Christmas morning. (Okay, maybe I am exaggerating just a little). But ladies, the sneakers are so comfy and totes on trend. Her sure to size an entire size down, they run huge! 
       My Tory Burch bag  in blush is the ultimate bag for the on the go girl. Being that I commute back and forth to the city this bag fits every essential. I can fit my 11 inch 

MacBook and so much more. I love that chunky knit sweaters are a thing this year because it gives me an excuse to dress in comfort and still look on trend. I am looking forward to adding more knits to my collection. I tagged a few of my favorite sweaters of the season!
