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.

Moments with Maya :: My New Scent for Spring with Tocca

When the season changes, I love to add new scents to my perfume collection. My newest addition is Maya by TOCCA, which also happens to be their newest scent. They graciously sent me this perfume to try and it smells divine! Before I dive into the notes making this beautiful fragrance, let’s talk about this stunning bottle. I’m a sucker for beautiful packaging and the violet ombre bottle with the gold ornate topper is breathtaking. It definitely stands out on my dresser since my other perfumes are in more neutral bottles.

Blossoms :: The Best Shorts & Making a Difference

Beautiful blossoms make me so so happy! Coastal Virginia has a good amount of beautiful pink blossoms right now and it makes me so so happy. This usually also means shorts weather, which is ideal since I’ve been waiting for spring to finally show up! These are the best shorts are perfect for spring and summer and they are less than $50! I love how they are just a little distressed. Plus, they’re high-waisted, which is so flattering. I love these with a cute top or tank, such as this turquoise button down cami. It’s also a great coverup for one piece swimsuits when you are at the beach! A good pair of shorts is a must have for this season. Other great pairs I’m loving are these cuffed ones and these frayed ones.

Little White Talisman Dress in Ghent for Spring

As flowers start to bloom and plants start to grow during spring, I love wearing white dresses because they just pop. This white talisman dress takes details to a whole new level. There are ladder cut-outs through the dress made with metallic thread trim. They are across the décolleté area, at the bottom of the short sleeves and then three times on the flared skirt. This dress is fully lined, which is great. Plus, this fabric feels like a dream, so it’s perfect for spring. Also, the back of this white talisman dress has a really fun, and kind of large, cut-out in a nice triangle shape. The silhouette of this dress is very flattering and definitely helps elongate petite ladies. This would be such a cute dress if you’re a bride for a bridal shower or engagement party, too!
