    Outfit Details: Chambray Baseball Cap via J.Crew (also love this Biltmore Baseball Hat via Madewell) | Oui Mon Cheri Linen Tee via J.Crew | Striped Linen Tank via Madewell | Purse: H&M | Leggings via GAP | Leather two-strap sandals via Zara
     

    I’ve been eyeing this J.Crew chambray baseball cap for a while. But after months of flipping through Madewell catalogues and seeing countless pins of girls looking chic-as-ever in their it’s whatever hats, it was too much to take – so I took the plunge and joined the team.

    Being a member of team cool-girl is pretty sweet. I get to show up wearing leggings, t-shirts and baseball caps and still get to call myself stylish. I’ve even gone up a level in my quest for it’s whatever style – I’m now on the hunt for the perfect pair of wear-out-pajama pants. Cause pajama pants are legit cool-girl shit now. If that’s not incentive enough to hop on this relaxed-trend bandwagon, I don’t know what is.

    So go buy up all the linen tees, all the sweat pants, all the birks, all the slouchy, relaxed-fit, soft-texture stuff you can get. Before it’s too late and pants suits make their grand comeback. Hurry – but don’t appear too frantic. That’s so not normcore.

  • 11 Small Changes That Had BIG Impacts on my Health

    health and fitness tips

    They say it’s small things that count – and apparently they are correct. These little changes have had a huge impact on my life: I no longer feel tired during the day, I no longer have chronic stomach aches, I’ve kept off the weight I’ve lost and I continue to lose both weight and inches. Obviously living a healthy lifestyle goes beyond a list of tips and habits – but these are all things I’ve learned and built slowly that have really changed who I am and how I live.

    So why keep it a secret any longer?! Here is a short & sweet list of the small but significant habits and things I’ve learned while on my journey to better health and fitness.

    1. Superfood smoothie every morning.

    My morning smoothie is the same – every single day. As a previously sporadic breakfast eater – building this habit has been instrumental for my healthy lifestyle. My smoothie recipe, you ask? I blend up frozen berries + fresh kale + coconut water + chia seeds + green superfood powder + whey protein. But I love this infographic on how to build your perfect green smoothie (in case you need measurements or don’t like my recipe).

  • Cool Girls – The Summer 8

    cool girl style summer 2014

    It’s cool to be cool again…just in time for summer. Pictures of these ‘cool girls’ have been littering my Pinterest and Tumblr feeds – with their messy hair, ratty shorts and perfectly slouchy tees. But, I kinda like it. The idea of an easy, light and simple summer wardrobe means you can invest in a few basics and then accessorize the rest with cheap jewels and flea-market finds.

    I’ve been slowly but surely building my “cool girl” summer closet, it’s the best thing I’ve done for my wardrobe since investing in a pair of leather booties last fall. But I wouldn’t want to leave you high-and-dry, no, I want to share with you the secret to achieving that it’s-whatever-I-just-woke-up-and-threw-this-on-but-I-look-like-Parisian-chic-but-mixed-with-NYC-hipness look.

    So here it is: the 8 summer items you need to find, buy and wear until they have “cool girl” rips and tears. And then wear them some more. Dang, you’re looking cooler already, girl.

  • THAT Skirt

    seattle fashion blogger striped skirt graphic tee

    Outfit Details - Jean Jacket: J.Crew; Graphic Tee: H&M (old, similar); Dockstripe Skirt: Madewell (I also love this darker one); Leather Flats: Madewell; Sunglasses: Nordstrom; Lipstick: Clinique Chubby Stick in Pudgy Peony

     

    It’s all about the silhouette – and this skirt is one of those rare, flattering-for-all pieces. It’ll create curves in places for those with more straight figures, and it will tastefully drape over problem areas, cinching at the tiniest part of the waist, for the curvier gals. A full mini is a MUST for summer, so hurry out and get one. No really. Do it. DO IT NOW.

    …need more help finding the perfect full mini for your summer wardrobe? Here are my 3 must-haves for the perfect skirt:
