Style Tips for Summer Kicks – Ft. Greats Brand

- Collaborators, Fashion

Finally, it’s summer!  We partnered with Greats Brand to share some of our fave style tips for wearing sneakers in the summer.  We love a good sandal or flip flop as much as the next beach-goer, but why be seasonally basic?  Beat the heat with these cool tips.  (Oh the puns…)   1. Let’s start with the most obvious: tee shirt and jeans.  Chelsea went with the black perforated “Royale” sneaker by Greats.  She kept it super casual for going…

My LED Light Therapy Experience

- Beauty

  If you guys have been following me on Instagram (here) for a while, you’ve seen my weekly InstaStory of myself at Skin Sutra Medspa, getting LED light therapy. I’m going to be talking in this post about the treatment, why I use it myself, my experience with the treatment and my results with some makeup free before and after shot??  For those of you guys that haven’t heard of LED light therapy before, it is exposure (by a creepy-baby-looking-mask)…

Keeping Cool in Cashmere

- Fashion

It’s no surprise that when someone says “cashmere” you automatically think of sweater weather.  We know, sitting by the fire, drinking hot cocoa in your cozy cashmere.  We get it.  But who says you can’t keep cool in cashmere too?  Take “no sweaters in summer” and throw that fashion stigma right out the window with “no white after Labor Day” and we’ll show you how.   Cashmere is a very fine fabric, not like your coarser wools or heavy cottons,…

American Style, Italian Leather – My Armadio

- Fashion

We love all things Italian – luxury, food, bread, coffee and definitely leather.  Our Armadio bags are no exception to that!  We typically wear our bags more than any other piece of clothing so before we considered Armadio, we wanted to make sure these bags were going to last and were versatile enough that they can be worn daily.  {Spoiler Alert} They are.   Armadio bags are direct to consumer, which means that we as the consumer can get these bags without the…

Found Myself a CHRLDR

- Collaborators, Fitness

  Countdown with me: 81 days. 81 days 6 hours. 81 days 6 hours 47 minutes (and counting) until SUMMER! Contrary to my typical procrastination ways, I’m getting a head start on my summer body prep this year and there’s no better way to feel motivated to get fit than to do it in style with CHRLDR.           As a college student, my second skin is activewear (it just comes with the territory), and I’m not complaining.…

Statement Skirts

- Fashion

Look ma, no pants!  Statement skirts are everything right now and while this is actually a skort, it still made a statement.   Rocking a mini skirt in the winter is bold because, well, because it’s winter.  I love pairing them with sheer black tights and flat ankle booties.  The tights do little to keep your legs warm but at least you have the flat booties so you can move quickly back into the heat, if I’m being honest.  This skirt…

Rent The Runway

- Collaborators, Fashion

Ladies, we’ve all been there. The stressful “I have nothing to wear” stage of fury when trying to plan an outfit for a big event. My room can be completely spotless until I flip through my wardrobe and can’t find the perfect piece for whatever event is coming up. In an instant, tops are tossed and shoes cover the floor like you just walked into “the land of misfit looks”. Rent The Runway saves you from the stress of searching your…
