Figure Skating with Outdoor Voices

Right boot on, then left boot on. Lace up the right skate, then lace up the left. On a crisp fall morning, come with me to Chilled Ponds, a local ice rink where I’m rediscovering my love for figure skating as a 27-year-old grandma (in figure skating terms, ha!)

I spent 11 years of my life figure skating. I pursued it competitively for most of those 11 years and as all good things, it came to an end. Injuries and just not being good enough to continue pursuing it pushed me to work hard toward my other dreams. I’m nowhere near as good as I used to be but figure skating in Outdoor Voices has inspired me to try some of my old tricks – even if it’s awkward, slow or ends in my butt on the ice.

Why You Need a Pair of Wide-Leg Pants

You may have seen plenty of wide-leg pants popping up lately, especially on me! Wide-leg pants are very nostalgic for me. They give me the same vibes as the pants I would wear with an Ao Dai, which is a traditional Vietnamese long dress. I’m partnering with River Island on today’s post to share why you need a pair of wide-leg pants, especially for summer! Wide-leg pants are all the rage right now and these white ones are my current obsession. Wide-leg pants are extremely flattering on everyone and they really elongate you! Plus, they’re so comfortable to wear, especially in the heat because they aren’t tight or restrictive. They really let your skin breathe and keep you cool. This particular pair of wide-leg pants comes in 11 colors, including classics such as black but also fun colors such as lavender, pink and more!

The Perfect Crop Top for Summer :: Mint Tie Strap Top

Happy Monday y’all! We got some gorgeous weather in Coastal Virginia this weekend. Looking forward to summer, I have a feeling this is going to be one of my summer uniforms. This mint tie strap top is the perfect crop top for summer. The length isn’t too short or too long, which is great for petite ladies. The tie straps with bows add a nice flirty and feminine touch, too. Also, I love how the ruffle top is layered, which is incredibly flattering for the bust area. This top also comes in black, too! Quality wise, the fabric is a dream to steam, ha! Plus, it is a nice weight and isn’t sheer or flimsy. One of the reasons it’s the perfect crop top for summer is it’s lined but doesn’t feel heavy. The tie straps allow you to really make this top fit perfectly for you, too.

Spring Whites :: Polka Dot Crop Top & Bamboo Bag

Happy Friday, y’all! While I adore color, I do like an occasional neutral look, especially white! This black and white polka dot crop top feels very fresh and perfect for spring. Polka dots always have such a classic feel, which grounds this trendy top a bit. In addition to the fun print, I love how the sleeves balloon a bit above the elbow but come into a cuff at the wrists. When I look for trendy pieces such as this polka dot crop top, I like to find details that’ll make them a little chicer. I love how this top has a crew neckline but it also ties in the back, which is very fun. There are a few different varieties of this top, including one here, here and here. Plus, I love how all of them, including the one I’m wearing, are quite affordable.
