Weekend Basics

Hi everyone!! I want to thank you all for your amazing feedback on the Coke announcement. While I've had my fair share of criticism, I've received an overwhelming amount of positive e-mails, messages, and comments from all of you and it's been incredibly motivating and wonderful to read them all. I always do my best to respond to every single one, but things have been a little crazy (more on that below) so if I've missed you, please know I read and appreciate your words immensely!

I was supposed to be in LA this weekend, but cancelled my plans and cozied up at home with boyfriend because he had a crash on his bike last week! He's done Iron Mans and tons of 100+ mile races, so he's always out riding or training for something, and I'm always sliiiiiiightly nervous every time he walks...

Rumor Has It…

 Hi guys!!! I hope your week has been off to a great start! Today is a different kind of post that is very personal and close to my heart and I want to thank you in advance for being with me here and giving me your attention. For the last week or so, there have been many rumors floating around and I’m excited to finally set the record straight about everything and address all of your wonderful, valid, and important questions. As a company, Suja has always been 100% authentic and transparent, and a person, so have I. In the same spirit, the intention of this post is to give you all the information, no holds barred, and tell you what it means for you as a consumer and the products you’ve grown to know and love.

For those of you who...

My Top 5 Summer Reads!

MY TOP 5 SUMMER READS!

 

There’s nothing I love more than curling up with a great book, especially during the summer when the weather is warm and I can do it outside on the beach, by the pool, or laying in the grass! A great book is also a wonderful travel companion, which we know I need quite a bit. I typically gravitate towards books that can teach me something about optimizing or improving my lifestyle in one way or another because they help shift my perspective about the way I do things, take a look at areas I may be neglecting, or reinforce good habits I already practice. I’ve already knocked out some wonderful reads in the last couple months so here are my recommendations!

1) The Coconut Oil Miracle by Bruce Fife

The Amalfi Coast

Hey peeps!! How I've missed you! I had a busy week in LA hanging with my boo thing Jordan and then went straight to Aspen where I've been doing some beautiful outdoor things! I'll share all the deets in a later post, but for now I need to catch you up on perhaps my most favorite place I've ever traveled in the world, the Amalfi Coast...

Summer Shirtdress

Hi friends!! I'm working on going through my Italy photos and uploading the zillion I took to blog about it all so don't worry, recaps to come! Since I've been back, it's been all about work catch up, laundry catch up, and friend/life catch up!

The weather's been pretty warm here this week and there's nothing I love more when it's hot than easy breezy light pieces! This white shirtdress is everything I love about summer dressing because it's crisp, fresh, and effortless. It can be worn belted with boho booties for a more casual vibe or paired with sleek strappy sandals like these babes for a sexier nighttime look. I paired it with these spiked sandals and neutral bag for errands followed a lunch date with my girlfriends and it was the perfect daytime one piece outfit.

How Italians Stay Skinny + What I Ate in Italy

It’s no secret I’m fascinated by health and wellness, specifically diet and nutrition. Due to my food intolerances from a young age, I have experienced the direct correlation between the foods we consume and the way we look and feel firsthand. On my recent trip to Italy, I had some major revelations about the difference between the Italian food mentality and the American food mentality.

London

Helllooo!!!! Sorry for the lapse in posting, I've been traveling Europe and wi-fi has been iffy! Currently soaking up the Italian sun in Positano after an incredible time in Florence and London! Heading to Capri later this week and possibly Ravello so I can't wait to share all my pics with you (I have A LOT)! We've done so much walking all over each city and it's been really fun to explore by foot and interact with the locals!

Starting in London was amazing because it's one of my favorite cities and last time I was there in December it was freezing which made it much harder to walk around the city! This time around the weather was wonderful, even though we had a day of rain and gloom. We still walked all over the city with an umbrella and the rain was actually...

Miami Swim Week

Cheerio from London!! I am so happy to be back in one of my favorite cities in the world for a couple days before heading to Florence and the Amalfi Coast! Things have been a bit crazy lately because I moved into a new place right before leaving for Miami last week for my first ever swim week! If you’re not familiar, swim week is basically like fashion week, but for swimwear. I went to lots of shows, afterparties, brunches, lunches, and events and also the trade shows where brands showcase their 2016 collections to buyers. It was so interesting to see the shows and everything that goes into putting them on and it was beyond fun to see the new stuff hitting the market for 2016 that had me seriously lusting! Miami is the perfect backdrop for swim week because it’s just a...

Star Boots

Hello from Miami Swim Week!!! I have a fun and busy day ahead of events and shows so I'm currently at hotel about to go get a walk/run in with my girlfriends before the day gets crazy so we can do a little exploring in South Beach. This is my first swim week so I'm super excited to be here and experience what it's all about! I will be recapping all next week so stay tuned for that next week!

In the meantime, here's an outfit that combines my favorite classics - cut offs, a white button down, black boots, and an oversized bag. This is such an everyday outfit for me and I generally stick to some sort of variation of this when I'm in a rush and want to pull a cute outfit together. I love to keep basics interesting...

What I Ate

Hi!! How is your weekend? I've been in LA all week, but I moved into my new place the day before leaving so I've spent the weekend unpacking, shopping, and nesting to get settled into my new home! I thought I'd be a wreck being gone in LA after having moved all my boxes without having time to organize or unpack them, but it was actually kind of nice to drop it all, leave, and take a breather before diving into the unpack. I let SO much stuff go that I no longer need/want/love and that has been a really freeing feeling. I didn't even bring my TV into this new space because I don't want to spend the little free time I have staring at a screen talking at me when I could be doing something creative like reading, writing, drawing, or cooking....
