How To Pack Like a Pro

I’m getting ready to head out of town today and thought it would be fun to share my packing protocol with you guys. So, packing isn’t torture for me at all anymore, but it used to cause me big time brain chaos. For one thing, I’m not an outfit “planner”. What if I’m in a different mood when I’m getting dressed than I was when I planned? I don’t usually know what I’m wearing until 5-10 minutes before I walk out the door and I like it that way. So having to decide what I’m wearing for days and days in advance and can’t change my mind because I only have those options with me seems like…whoa…a lot.

Top 12: San Diego

Welcome to the big beautiful NEW Blawnde site!!! Ahhhh I’m so excited about it! I wanted to incorporate some things that make it easier for you guys to find posts you want to read, shop items you like, and roam around a little quicker. As before, the BLAWNDE homepage is a pure space and always will be. I’m not interested in cluttering it up with ads and marketing or product promotions for brands I don’t even use. It may have gotten an extreme makeover, but BLAWNDE is still the same old G. I hope you love it as much as I do! :)

What I Ate: LA

Hi peeps! I’ve been working from LA this week and have been eating some super yummy, healthy meals! I’ve been extra hungry lately which happens to me randomly sometimes (I think because I’ve been super busy and days have been long) so I’ve been eating a bit larger meals than usual. Here’s what I ate Tuesday…

Like to Know It + Overall

Before I jump into the oh so important deets of this outfit, I want to thank you all for such warm feedback on my last post. It is always a bit uncomfortable to post personal thoughts like that -will I be judged? I never know how something I put out will be received and keeping the focus off myself and on an outfit or a meal is always easier. So thank you for sharing your own thoughts, relating to each other, and making such a productive and positive discussion happen. It’s really the whole reason why I have this space and what I want it to be all about while you’re here with me. OK! Now, onto the highly intellectual topic of overalls…

Getting Real

There’s something I want you guys to know. I’m a real person who goes through up and down times. I’m not a robot. And I’m also not good at faking. I don’t know how to not pour out the things I’m sad, emotional, and anxious about when I’m feeling them because I like to connect with the people in my life and let them help me and be there for me. I haven’t always been an open book, and saw facing challenges or hard times as imperfection. It wasn’t until I actually had some that I realized I don’t have to be perfect and I don’t want to be if it means I can’t open up and share who I am and what I’m going through with other people. Life isn’t meant to be lived alone and going through things on your own.

A Day in the Life

Here’s what a day in the life of Annie Lawless looks like: Every morning the day gets started at 5:00am…5:00 AM – Wake up, check e-mail (clear out the junky ones and flag the important ones I need to get to first) + get dressed for yoga….

Life’s A Beach

My romper obsession continues with this little tie dye number that I can’t get enough of! This boho Life’s A Beach romper from Blue Life is the perfect summer ensemble that’s lightweight, comfy, and totally fuss free. I wore this for a day of work stuff + errands then downtown for dinner + drinks without having to run home to change. I’m all about versatility in my wardrobe because I have a lot of different things going each day and my outfits have to work for all…

Stuff I’m Loving

It’s been majorly warm summer weather in San Diego and I’m clinging to super lightweight basics like gauzy tanks and cutoffs like no other clothes exist. Im also loving pretty pastels for nails and lips, and chunky turquoise jewelry to add some interest to my minimal outfits. And coasters have been a total must on my new travertine table because all I’m sipping is freezing ice cold drinks to cool off.

The pH Balance

Hi! I hope everyone has had a killer weekend! Today on the blog, we’re talking pH because it’s an important principle that can really improve health for some people and is just a good thing to know as a general guideline for living, Sooo what is it? pH means power of hydrogen, which is the measure of hydrogen ion concentration in the bod pod. The pH scale goes from 1 to 14 and smack dab in the middle at 7 is neutral. The pH balance is the balance between acid and alkaline in the body….

Lust List

I’m always looking for a way to not have to wash my hair and hats are the perfect solution because they make your outfit cuter in addition to concealing horrifyingly greasy hair. I’m currently in love with Janessa Leone hats because they actually suit my face/head and aren’t overwhelmingly floppy/huge. And have you guys tried RAILS shirts yet? They are the softest, coziest, best button downs I’ve ever had! They aren’t crunchy and stiff so you can wear them in hot weather and they feel like a t-shirt. They also come in the best prints! Here’s what I’m lusting for a perfect summer day look…
