If there’s one trend I’m loving this winter it’s velvet! Although one fun fact about me, I actually hate the texture of velvet. Growing up I was a competitive gymnast so I lived in velvet leotards for over 12 years. To this day I can’t really touch the soft fabric but I’m really starting to love the way it looks! I actually was looking into investing in navy velvet pillows (I love these!) for my couch because I love the way they look but again, I know I wont use them so that’s out. Anywho, today I’ve rounded up over 13 velvet items you can easily add to your winter wardrobe!
I cannot believe Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! Whether or not you have a significant other or not, I think Valentine’s Day is one of the most fun holidays to celebrate throughout the year. Incorporating beautiful arrangements of red and pink roses throughout your house, baking cookies or giving sweet valentines to your friends and family always make this holiday so fun in my book! So of course I think you should treat your self this Valentine’s Day.
Happy Martin Luther King Day, friends! Hope everyone has the day off today. I’m back home in Cleveland but headed back to the city today. I went shopping with my mom yesterday (does anyone else love Beachwood Mall?!) and came across so many goodies I have officially added to my winter wardrobe wish list..
We’re almost 10 days in to the New Year! Can you believe it? Although I’m not one for sticking with New Years resolutions, I always love the fresh start of a new year as it gets my butt back into the gym. I try to get to the gym at least 2-3 times a week. I entertain quite a bit for my day job so bringing clients to workout classes is one of my favorite ways to entertain and stay on point with my work out schedule. Obviously it depends on the week of how much I can actually get there but there’s nothing better than picking up some new active wear to motivate a gym sesh! Ami right?!
I’ve been an avid fan of Lulu Lemon yoga pants for years (these are my fav, especially for Pure Barre!). Zella is a new-to-me brand (and more affordable brand) that I have been rocking lately. Nike has been a long time favorite of mine as well: I love this sports bra, this tank and these running shoes for Barry’s. You can shop all of my new favorite workout wear below! Happy Monday, ladies and gents. Xo. Lauren
