  Lilly Pulitzer Agenda

Since school is starting back it is always a great time to get organized. There are many planners and agendas on the market, but my favorite one is the Lilly Pulitzer Hard Cover Agenda (exact one found here). I have been using Lilly agendas for the past four years. The reason why I love these is because they are 17 month agendas, so you can plan for the near or long future. It has both weekly and monthly pages to plan out your social, work or school schedules. This agenda has a travel journal, dates to remember and a page for notes. It is very well organized with labeled tabs for each month and all the extra pages. Lilly agendas come in three different sizes to fit your needs and price. Other favorite Lilly print Agenda’s are this one and this one. What is your favorite agenda?

Beets Blu Body Composition Smart Scale
                     

I am always trying to be on a health kick. To help me stay on track is this Beets Blu Body Composition Smart Scale. This scale instantly transmits data to your smartphone through bluetooth and the Beets BLU Smart Sale App. It measures and stores data for future downloads, such as weight history and body measurement changes over time. It is extremely easy to use with an iPhone, iPad, or an Android. The Beets BLU Smart Scale measures weight, BMI, body fat percentage, muscle percentage, lean body mass, and bone percentage. It measures in pounds and kilograms, with easy transition from one to the other.

Back to School for the Stylish Undergrad

The first day of college for many university students is starting soon. Whether you are a freshmen or a senior you should always be prepared, especially for the stylish undergrad. I was always told first impressions stick. Considering this you should look your best and be ready for the first day. I have rounded up many of the supplies, clothing options, shoes, and bags you will need to get through not only the first day but the first semester.

The stylish underground first needs a cute planner to keep your assignments and social calendar organized. I would suggest this one here, not only is it girly and colorful, you can choose to write your information on the two page calendar each month or use the weekly pages that allow for more space and detail. The fact that it has stickers does not hurt either. Other supplies need for school are this item here, these, and this. Once you have your supplies you will need a fashionable  backpack to keep it all in. This one is super cute. If your are not into backpacks this tote here will definitely do.

Now on to the clothing. Jeans and a nice tees are a must for college students because they are easy and you can dress them up or down depending on your accessories. One of my favorite pair of jeans are these here. They fit great and are under $100. As you know a good pair of denim can be pricey so finding good ones that last, and will not break you is pretty hard. A v-neck tee is essential to have in your wardrobe because they are easy to throw on and go good with most pants, skirts and shorts options. This tee is great and is a neutral.

The next question is….what are you going to wear on your feet? Tennis shoes or gym shoes are best if you are walking long distances across campus. I like these because you can wear them with any color, but if you are trying to be a little more fancy these decorated high-tops or these flats will definitely add more to an outfit.

For those Fall and colder months try a button down. I like theses two, here and here. Also a denim jacket is great for fall. What are your favorite back to school items? Shop my picks below. Enjoy! Have a great first day if you are a student or educator.

Weekend in the Desert

This past weekend I flew out to the Palm Desert to meet my boyfriend at the HITS Desert Circuit Horse Show. He is the National Sales Manager for Equine Motorcoach (website here). If you have horses you really should check out the motorcoach. The views in the Palm Desert are spectacular, as you can see from the pictures.

It gets pretty hot here in the desert so I made sure I packed a lot of dresses. This one I have on is a favorite. A Lilly Pulitzer from last year. I have linked new similar Lilly’s here and here. I accessorized it with my Kendra Scott earrings, found here, my Louis Vuitton tote (here), and Tory Burch sandals (similar here and here). I have linked my outfit details below.

If you have never been to a horse show you should check one out. It is very interesting. I did not know too much about horses, unless they were running at the Kentucky Derby (being that I am from Kentucky) until I started attending these shows. There are many different disciplines and I am learning about many of them slowly. 
Hope you enjoy!

Fashionable Fitness

Who says you can’t be fashionable while working out? Looking good while working out has always motivated me. I feel like when I look the part I want to push myself to go a little further in the gym or run another lap outside. I love cute workout clothes and if I going to spend the money to buy them than I am going to use them for that purpose. This jacket is one of my favorites pair with navy workout pants and a white tee, I am ready to run (or shall I say jog) a couple miles. Check out details below. Hope you enjoy!

KDF Winefest

Morning Loves! Hope this week is treating you well. Last week I attended the Kentucky Derby Festival (KDF) Winefest. It is one of the events that takes place leading up to the Derby. See all the events here. This is the third time I attended this event.  It is a annual outing that one of my friends and I like to to do each year together. Over 20 wineries in Kentucky and southern Indiana set up shop on the Belvedere near the Ohio River for a 2 day wine tasting event. If you didn’t already know….I am a wino! Lol! This is a great way to sample multiple wines, to see which ones you like and to socialize with a group of friends. Check out my day at the KDF Winefest and my outfit details. Hope you enjoy.
