10 Things I Never Travel Without

Although I’m by no means a travel expert, I do love going new places and experiencing new things. I fully intend to do more traveling in these next couple of years, so hopefully I’ll quickly become more seasoned and confident with the whole travel thing, especially where packing is concerned. Most recently I packed for my honeymoon to Jamaica (still so surreal to think I’m married and went on a honeymoon!). It was a bit tricky because Ted and I wanted to carry on our luggage, so the size of our suitcases was restricted…

Easy Breezy

Summer in Cincinnati can be brutal. (Honesty hour: I had a horrible sweat ‘stache during this photoshoot haha) So, sometimes, loose, flowy, and easy breezy is the best way to be with your outfits. And let me tell you, there’s nothing more easy breezy than this short/top combo. Both pieces are from Nordstrom, and I feel like depending on your choice of shoe, they can be super casual, or a bit dressy. I’ve worn this look with some TopShop slides and I’m telling you, changing the shoes makes it a whole different…

Wedding Wednesdays: The Week Of

You guys, it’s here! This is it! THIS IS NOT A DRILL! It’s…WEDDING WEEK! I’m in a bit of disbelief. People kept telling me that our wedding would be here before I knew it, but it honestly feels like Ted was down on his knee asking me to be his wife just yesterday! (If you missed our engagement story, you can check it out HERE) Wedding Wednesdays started as a way for me to keep my readers updated on all our wedding plans and such, and I’ve honestly loved every…

Olive Off the Shoulder Top

I would be lying if I didn’t tell you that a working title for this post was “Indiana Jones Chic”. Maybe it’s the hat and ripped denim combo, but something about this was giving me total Harrison Ford archeologist vibes haha Anyways, lame working titles and childhood crushes aside, how cute is this top!? I’m not sure why it’s taken me so long to feature it a post (I have it in as black as well), but better late than never! This top can easily be dressed up or down…

50 Thoughts I’ve Had During My First 50 Pure Barre Classes

It’s no secret that Pure Barre is a serious passion of mine as of late. I started attending Pure Barre classes back in May (May 9th to be exact!…don’t ask me why I know that haha) and I’ve consistently attended class 3-5 times/week ever since! (If you want to know more about what Pure Barre is like, check out this post of mine!) There are some milestones within the Pure Barre community, one of them being taking 100 classes. Currently, I’m a little over halfway there, and doing…
