Finally Fall Sweater

Similar sweater here and here // Jeans // Block Heel Booties // Tory Burch Tote

Fall is finally here! So you'll most likely be finding me in a sweater with a PSL in hand at all times. This sweater from Sun and Shadow is perfect for transitioning into cooler weather. It's so comfy and looks best paired with your favorite skinnies! If you're looking for a new pair of booties I HIGHLY recommend these!! They are my favorite pair of booties that I've ever owned and the block heel adds the perfect amount of height. 

I would also like to give my BFF Hannah a shoutout for helping me out with this post and being the best photographer a girl could have :)

VSX Outfit Review + Workout

Sooo this post is a little different from my previous blog posts! I am reviewing this workout outfit that is all from Victoria's Secret! As many of you know, VS is no longer doing a swimwear line (sad) and is now focusing on their athletic wear. Since I'm a sucker for good athletic wear, I wanted to put their stuff to the test! I have worn this outfit during cardio and weight training, so I think I have a pretty good feel on how they perform. So let's get started! 

First, I'm going to start with my Knockout by Victoria's Secret Capri! The first thing I like about this pant is the high waist band. It stays up during my entire workout while also holding everything in ;) I also really love how they look on and the bright pattern! Look good, feel good right? The only thing I was disappointed in was the material was not as breathable as the Nike Dri-Fit workout pants, even though they are around the same price. So I found myself getting hot a lot quicker in these than in Dri-Fit pants. This particular pattern is no longer online but I did recently see it in my VS store!

Now onto the top! I'm in love with this logo tank from VS. Plus, it's UNDER $20!! Totally worth it. It's made with their body-wick material that keeps you cool and dry during your workout. I've worn this top while running errands and working out, so I think it's a great top to add to your collection! They also have fun sayings on the front and who doesn't like that?! 

Last, but certainly not least, is the Strappy Mesh-trim Sport Bra. This sports bra has such a cute strappy back and won't break the bank like a lot of fun sports bras out there! It's a minimum support bra, so definitely not made for high intense cardio, but it's perfect for weight training, barre or just running errands! It comes in a lot of different colors and is perfect for days where you just don't feel like wearing a bra (which is like everyday haha)! 

Here's my favorite "Oh. My. Quad." workout moves! 

Smith Machine:
  • Regular squats
  • Wide leg squats
  • Curtsy lung
  • Single-leg squats 
  • Single-leg dead lifts 
  • Normal deadlifts 
  • Kettlebell swings
Favorite leg machines: 
  • Leg Press: Single and double leg 
  • Seated leg curls

Labor Day Weekend with Anthropologie

T-shirt dress (old) // Similar Heels here and here(under $20) //  Crossbody Bag

I'm definitely not looking forward to Labor Day weekend coming to an end... I've loved having time away from school since the first couple weeks back were a little overwhelming for me. So I'm making the most of these last two days of freedom! This T-shirt dress from Anthropolgie is perfect for those last minute Labor Day plans! I bought it last year when I was in L.A. and it is seriously so comfy and cute. The tie in the front adds a little extra to the dress I think. I decided to dress it up with lace up heels because I think it makes the look a little more edgy, but you could always pair it with cute of sandals or sneakers!

Since I bought this dress last summer, it's no longer in stores. BUT! Anthropologie has a few similar ones that are on sale linked herehere and here

I hope everyone has had a great Labor Day Weekend!
