THINKING OF MIU MIU

I couldn’t pass up this colorful vintage crocheted vest, thinking of Miu Miu’s resort collection. At just 19 dollars it was a tiny fraction of the price of  the Miu Miu. Pretty fun for a cheap thrill!
Also wearing: a Brooks Brothers Black Fleece handbag, a Stylenanda faux fur coat, Hysteric Glamour jeans, and Polo Ralph Lauren platform hiking boots.
I love the Miu Miu vests over the wild printed dresses and blouses, so inspiring!

This cute striped 70s sweater was a lucky thrift store find this weekend! I love the après-ski feel of it. Wearing vintage sweater with boyfriend jeans, Loeffler Randall “Rider” handbag, Madewell belt, and Miu Miu booties from spring 2006.

RED ON BLONDE

IMG_3816

Good morning, everyone! Hope you all are staying warm. It is 25 degrees here and I am chilled to the bone! I mentioned previously that I was going to update you on how my hair color was holding up with the new Paul Mitchell Ultimate Color Repair collection. I think that you can tell from these photos that the color is really holding on!  It has stayed especially vibrant through the ends, which is where I always experience the most color loss, resulting in an accidental “ombre” look that I am not a fan of. Red is such a high-maintenance color and I am really impressed with how mine has lasted. No more messy, late-night dye jobs in the kitchen sink for me.

Full disclosure: my hair is three days unwashed in these photos. It is not out of laziness, I just prefer when my hair looks “lived in” as opposed to the mousy look my fine hair has when it is freshly washed! The Paul Mitchell Ultimate Color Repair Shampoo is sulfate-free, and has a great lather that is gentle and protects my color. It is the perfect shampoo for those who like to skip a day or two on washing! After showering, I spray my wet hair with Paul Mitchell Ultimate Color Repair Triple Rescue to protect against excessive heat, a major cause of color fade. To achieve this “undone” look and maintain my hair color, I avoid washing my hair daily and use a hydrating mousse to keep the ends of my hair moisturized and enhance my natural texture. Lastly, I hit random sections of my hair with a 1-inch curling wand for added texture before I leave the house, making sure I used the thermal protectant spray for heat and color protection before the wand touches my hair!

FITNESS For 2015

Like a lot of you, I wanted to start off 2015 with a renewed commitment to my health and well-being. There is nothing more gratifying to me than feeling my body getting stronger and challenging my limits! I say that as a former couch potato and big time wimp. Two years ago I was totally gym-phobic. Since then I’ve come to love to working out and I’m addicted to the endorphin rush from my morning workout. My absolute favorite workout to do right now is Ballet Beautiful. I started about a year ago and it is a killer way to get in shape! It annihilates your legs, abs, arms, and butt with many reps of small controlled movements. I now start most mornings my putting on my leotard and ballet slippers for a Ballet Beautiful session. It makes you feel elegant even when you are sweating your tail off. I’m doing  some strength training, barre and HIIT too right now. I need some variety to keep myself motivated. Cute workout clothes are always motivate me too!

QUICK OOTD

IMG_4065 workday

A quickly thrown-together outfit I put on for the busy day ahead! My “dad jeans” have been my go-to this winter. Wearing a Three Dots coat with vintage Levi’s (similar here), Chloe heels from spring 2008, an oversized textured scarf from Barneys, and aviator sunglasses. I’m trying to enjoy the sunshine before it drops back down to 19 degrees tonight. I’m looking forward to making a big pot of soup tonight (maybe curried cauliflower??) and getting under the blankets with the dogs once the day is done!
