Embracing The Colors Of Summer In VANS

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

The Florida sun turned my hair peach... and I ain't even mad.
I really dig the contrast of it against my super beachy colored outfit!
 All I was missing was a skate-bored under my arm. What is it about warm weather
& vacations, that makes you want to throw on every neon item you own?!
Luckily I brought some of my favorite VANS gear with me to the beach.
This was an hour or two before sunset, & I was preparing to walk into town at night with Nicole. Naturally, I needed my favorite new walking Slims & a bright beanie to keep me warm for later.
I don't know what was more colorful, the sun setting over the ocean..
or me walking in front of it on the sand. Whatever!

What I'm Wearing:
Authentic Ombre Slims  - c/o Vans  |  Boast Beanie- c/o Vans
Sargent Eye Scuba Tank - c/o Vans  |  Skirt- Heartloom
Sports Bra- New Balance  |  Circle Lens Cat Sunglasses - Vans

Happy 4th of July!
Well, more happy belated 4th of July. As some of you may have saw on my Instagram
this holiday weekend, I was having major technical difficulties with posting.
Oh well. Celebrate America everyday, am I right?!

Last week I had a friend from San Francisco in town, & had the pleasure of doing
all of the "touristy" NYC things, that I have put of doing my entire life.
Things like going to Central Park, the Empire State Building,
Ground Zero, The Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, etc..

I could not be more grateful to have done these things right before the 4th of July.
My appreciation for America, the holiday and New York City alone grew
a thousand times more with just a few "touristy" experiences.
Experiences some people will never get to have, & that I have taken for granted my entire life.

No matter where in America you are lucky enough to call home,
do yourself a favor & explore. Explore every last bit of land with all of your heart 
before taking your journey further. I can not stress it enough...

Sand Safari

Thursday, June 26, 2014

It makes me terribly sad that these poor excuse for tan lines, are now coming to a slight fade.
Sigh.. The reminiscing of my vacation last month continues.
Why I don't just live on a beach? I will never know. It just doesn't get any better than
slipping on a little tube dress over your bathing suit, & going for a stroll on the sand.
Nicole and I fell in love with the color of this hotel in passing. We stopped to take photo's
& the manager came out and basically watched us take them (aka telling us to scram).
So don't mind my awkward face in like.. all of them ahahah.
It made for hysterical memories for Nicole & I at least. I will say that.

What I'm Wearing:
Kivari The Label Dress | 10th Tribe Lace Cape
Over the Moon Bracelet c/o Katie Dean Jewelry  
Empowered & Little Cherokee Necklaces c/o Katie Dean Jewelry

Desert Moon Child

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

Oh, Take me back to vacation!
Times are so much easier and carefree when all you have to
worry about, is what bikini to wear that day…sigh.
For now I will just re-live my trip last month through photo's with you all!

I just can't get enough of long, mingling days spent on the beach..
followed by moonlight, campfire nights on that very same beach.
The cooler temperature from the ocean breeze instantly soothes
any skin irritated by the sun earlier that day just so peacefully.
I basically lived in my Vans zip-up hoodie every night of vacation!
It was the perfect thing to throw on over any tank,
or bikini top to keep the chill out, without overheating. 
A casual layering piece like this one is a major beach essential for me.

What I'm Wearing:
 c/o Vans: Solo Bowl Scuba Tank |  c/o Vans: Link Zip-Up Hoodie
Glamour Kills: Intergalactic Bikini Top  |  Heartloom: Maxi Skirt 
Karen London: Desert Moon Necklace  |  Karen London: Gypsy Ring

French Connection: Ladies Who Brunch

Friday, May 30, 2014

Hello lovies! 
Sorry I went MIA for a bit this past month. I started a new job, had my 8 year anniversary,
and escaped to Florida for a much needed vacation with my family(many pics to come!). 
So much was going on! But all is so amazing & finally settled in Cahleigh-land...

The other week I had the pleasure of brunching with French Connection on the roof-top
of The Kimberly Hotel in Manhattan. French Connection generously sent me the most gorgeous
outfit, that I just couldn't wait to wear with a mimosa in hand! What says NYC brunch more
than a floral maxi?! It was a beautiful day in the city & the weather was perfect for
brunching in the sunshine with old and new friends, while overlooking Manhattan.
Thanks to French Connection for a beautiful end to a long week!

What I'm Wearing:
Desert Tropicana Maxi Dress c/o French Connection
Albany Biker Jacket c/o French Connection
Triple Zip Crossbody Bag c/o French Connection
Earrings: Givenchy
 Quartz Necklace: Sage & Brass
Sunglasses: Versace

Green With Gratitude Smoothie...

Thursday, April 17, 2014

What are you grateful for?
Seems like a simple question... But really, when was the last time that you focused your
hearts energy on the things that you have, and not the the things that you want?
When you take time to fully appreciate & have gratitude for the things in life that
normally go unnoticed, you suddenly find yourself fully living in the present.

Personally, the more I practice gratitude, the more I have to be grateful for. 
Take just five minutes a day to rattle off what you are grateful for.
Could be as you stretch before getting out of bed, during meditation, 
on your commute to work, during your evening walk, while you shower,
before you drift off to sleep, or any other pure waking moment.
Start with the things that seem the most fundamental & work up from there.
Once you start practicing gratitude appreciation, you will find it hard to stop listing!
If you are having trouble fighting negative thoughts & answering this question,
I challenge you to try harder. If you can read this right now it means you have
the gift of sight, & that alone is something to be extremely grateful for.

I'm grateful for the things I have in my kitchen that I can throw together to
instantly nourish myself. I'm grateful for the self clean button on my Vitamix (haha!).
I'm grateful for the sensation that I get when my mason jar hits my lips.
I'm grateful for the instant energy I receive from a simple smoothie.
I'm grateful for a green tongue. I'm grateful to be able to share this recipe.
I'm especially grateful for YOU reading this right now...

What You'll Need:

- 2-3 leaves of Kale.
- 1 Banana.
- 1 Orange (I used a Valencia).
- 16 oz. Coconut Water.
- 2 oz. Aloe Vera Juice.
- 1 teaspoon of Spirulina.
- 2-3 tablespoons of Hemp Seeds.
- 1 tablespoon of Coconut Flakes.
- About 7 ice cubes.

Makes 34 oz's of green goodness.

Kale is great for cutting down the sweetness of a fruity smoothie.
Not a kale fan? It's cool.
Try substituting with spinach, or adding in some agave or honey to sweeten!

 Add it to the Vitamix & blend up!

Yummy Benefits:
Energizing. Alkalizing. Calcium, iron, & fiber power filled. Antioxidant potent.
Hydrating & electrolyte restoring. Cardiovascular & lung support. Digestion balancing.
Detoxing. Protein & potassium power. Cancer fighting. Kidney & immune support.
Nutrient, vitamin & mineral filled!

"Gratitude is a fullness of heart that moves you from limitation and fear to expansion and love.
When you’re appreciating something, your ego moves out of the way.
You can’t have your attention on ego and gratitude at the same time."
- Deepak Chopra
Peace, Love, & Gratitude,
