Spring has sprung here in New York which means I’m slowly transitioning out of my darker colors. Can you tell I l may be drawn towards a more neutral palette? Banana Republic has some great classic pieces this season that will make your Spring a little more comfortable and fun. I love the style of this polo with the buttons completely down the middle, so decided to keep it open like a cardigan. With it just at the beginning of warmer weather, adding this silk/cotton blend cardigan was the best touch of layering.

Who knew staying fit could be chic and stylish? Especially with the athleisure trend sky rocketing! Whenever I’m working out, I like to track my distance in time so naturally, I’ve teamed up with Amazfit for just that reason. Their Pace smart-watch is perfect for my detailed workout routine. While at the gym, I typically start off with a 2-3 mile run which my Amazfit will track the: distance, time, pace, heart rate, speed and how many calories I’ve burn during that time. Sure the average treadmill tracks this information for you, but I like the fact this goes with me wherever I go.

Also, no more working out with your phone in hand (which is probably the most annoying part of my workout). You can load up your music to the internal storage of the watch and run phone free! The coolest thing about the smart-watch is the built in GPS. This smart-watch can track your routine which will track your daily distance. Summer is almost around the corner so stay fit and grab a Pace running smart-watch of your own! You can recieve 20% off with the code: ‘FINDYOURFIT’

I’m always switching up my skincare routine deepening on the season or what my skin is in need of. I’ve recently discovered the Sunday Riley line everyone has been raving about and I think I have been using these guys for a decent amount of time to give a solid review.
First, I start off the day cleansing my face with the Ceramic Slip Clay Cleanser. This is a super gentle yet effective cleanser that is perfect for all skin types. It minimizes the apperance of my pores and leaves my skin feeling fresh. There’s also vitamin C to which brightens the skin. For a super deep cleanse, you can keep this on your face for up to a minute, then rise. Every time I use this, my skin is left feeling soft and dewey.
The second step in your skincare routine is crucial. The Martian Mattifying Melting Water-Gel Toner that transforms from a cooling gel to a water toner. It clarifies, removes oil and tightens pores – leaving your skin matte. This toner also targets acne-prone skin using marshmallow and green tea to soothe. I love the way this leaves my skin feeling prepared for the next step in my skincare routine.
Last but not least, the holy grail. I’m obsessed with the Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream. This is a brightening and refining treatment infused into a water cream so it leaves your skin feeling plump and hydrated. It brightens the appearance of dark spots and hyper-pigmentation. I typically use this at night but if used during the day, I suggest wearing an SPF.
Shopping for the perfect boot for the winter season is a struggle. Luckily, I struck gold with these comfortable boots from Dr. Martens’ new Lite collection. This unisex boot is a part of an revolutionary new line of products that include an ultra-lightweight sole. The sole is super lightweight and slip resistance because of a wicking SoftWair Technology Insole, padded collar, and thick mesh and foam tongue.
While you can style these many different ways, I decided to take the casual approach while in Brooklyn. A simple waffle sweater, paired with fitted chino pants, rolled up just enough to show off the height of the boot.

If you’re anything like me, when you love something so much and it just so happens to comes in multiple colors….you take advantage! I’ll be transitioning the brown ones into my spring wardrobe and wearing them similar to how I’m currently wearing them now. Minus the jacket and minus the thick sweater contingent on if it’s not freezing!
