Motivation

Happy Summer! It is beyond hot here in the bluegrass state, almost unbearable. How are you holding up where you are? I started this post as a fitness motivation post for myself and then quick realized I that I  honestly just needed to ask for motivation from you all. Truth is I find it hard to go to work, go to the gym and come home to work on my other businesses (blog, plant nite, wedding stuff), as well as do household things (cook, clean, laundry). How do you all do it all? How do  you keep it straight? With the wedding being less then 100 days away I guess I am asking for suggestions. What works for you?

Suggestions on:
1.Quick and easy workout routines (30 mins or so)
 2. Daily schedules on household chores (day you do each task and for how long)
3. Business ladies: How do you work a full-time job and run your other businesses?
4. Brides: When you are 100 days out from your wedding what task do you suggest to make sure everything is organized and ready?
I honestly think this post could help many who are in need motivation or ideas. If you have any suggestions bring them on! Also I am speaking my workout into existence with this cute athleisure outfit, shop similar ones below.

Athleisure

Shop: Tank | Leggings | Shoes | Watch 

Hi All! I have totally been a slacker! I need some motivation to get my life together and get in shape. I have around 125 days till the big day so I need to get it in gear. What workouts are you all doing? I am looking for something that will get me toned, meaning it incorporates weights. I am good at the cardio part of working out but I am not sure of a good weight routine. Definitely open for suggestions. What has worked for you? September will be here before I know it!
One thing that is always motivating to me is athletic wear or athleisure. Having the perfect outfit while getting your excise on is a must! So I have picked out some of my favorites and linked them below. What are you wearing while working out?

Every Girl Needs A Skirt

Every girl needs a good skirt for summer. One that they can dress up or wear with casual pieces. I found my summer skirt, this light and airy blue is super comfortable. I paired it with a simple v-neck tee and accessorized it with a lot of jewelry. I love a statement necklace and I think this purple agate one, which I designed and put together myself, goes great with this outfit and gives it a pop of color.   I added my favorite leopard clutch to give the pieces some texture. Finished the look with mirror sunnies and a pair of tan flats.

Summer style is in full effect! Tanks on Tanks on Tanks….is the way to go for summer. Tanks are easy and go great with shorts, skirts and denim jeans like I wore in this outfit. You can dress up a tank  with the right accessories. I chose to style mine with a designer cross body, a dual color pom pom necklace, and a pair of multicolor shades to finish the outfit. How do you dress up your tank? Shop my look below.

Salt Life w/ Charming Charlie

Take me back to the Bahamas! White sand beaches and very blue water….who wants to come with me?? No seriously, if you have the opportunity to take a getaway to the water do it, you won’t regret it! And while you are there your outfit and accessories should be tops on the list, I mean after you get a tropical cocktail with a little umbrella! 🙂

This outfit is hands down one of my spring/summer favorites. You cannot go wrong with ruffles and  a off the shoulder top. I paired it with white denim jeans, which are a summer staple; tan sandals, and this unbelievable basket (a beach must!). I accessorized with the cutest Austin earrings from Charming Charlie. If you have not checked out Charming Charlie you should they have the best accessories, apparel and home goods at reasonable prices that you will love. I finished the look with a pair of sunnies and a stylish hat.

What is you favorite beach look? Shop mine below
