Cold No More

One of my new favorite principal ballerinas is Lauren Lovette from New York City Ballet. I’d like to start off this post with one of her quotes from her instagram page:

“We never want to feel pain but we still desire strength…I sure am glad that I don’t always get what I want, because I would surely never take the hard road willingly, and without the hard road I certainly wouldn’t be the same woman.”

This quote has no relation to what I’m posting today but I feel that it’s always a good idea to start the day with a powerful statement! Us women should and can achieve greatness and after creating myself as a brand I have come to realize that this isn’t going to be easy. And you know what? I’m excited to face obstacles because who knows what might come of them!

Winter Blues

As the winter season is coming to an end in most places, I know that I still need to keep my winter boots in easy access for the next four months #Coloradolife 🙂 This winter I decided to spice up my wardrobe and team up my typical go-to black outfits with a pop of blue. If many of you follow me on instagram or live with me in the dorms you might have noticed that I have an obsession with a blue, flowered scarf. Coming up to the new year I thought that it was time that I put my baby in storage and rather treat myself to a few new pieces.

A navy blue knit sweater is pictured in the first two photos. I got it at Marshalls (one of my favorite off-price retailing stores) for $15.99!!! Couldn’t pass up this newborn 🙂 Complementing the sweater I paired it with my favorite lululemon legging, ALDO black booties, and a Columbia winter coat.

One of the best gifts I received this holiday season is this incredible UGG light blue fleece vest. Underneath the vest is a cream cashmere sweater from a local consignment shop in Fort Collins. This vest is also paired with lululemon leggings but I decided to ditch the black booties and throw on a pair of light tan Sorel’s. I know that they’re having their annual winter sale right now (items up to 25% off!) I would suggest shopping there right now if you live in a snowy area like me :).
