Why I Love Linen for Summer

Growing up in Texas, and living in Nebraska and Virginia for a few years, I’ve learned a few things about how to dress for the summer heat. The first rule is to wear breathable clothing. I cannot stress enough how important it is to check the fabric of the garment you’re buying. Polyester, which is what most clothing is made of nowadays, is not breathable. This means it’ll trap your sweat and make you hotter – a vicious cycle. That’s where linen comes in.

The Three Best Joggers for Women

Maybe it’s the former athlete in me, but I cannot resist a pair of good joggers.  It can be hard to find the right pair of joggers to fit and flatter you. Some can be too baggy, too long, too tight or even too short. In this post, I want to share the best joggers for women I’ve found. I’ll never forget how I stumbled upon both of these joggers. They were not filed under the jogger section, actually. However, I remember seeing the fit on the model and thinking, “These are it!” There are two pairs I’m featuring in this post. One is high waisted and has a more subtle look. The other sits lower on the waist and features the iconic Nike swoosh. I recommend both but if you’re only going to get one, I hope this helps you decide between the two.

How to Style Sneakers for Fall

I have a confession to make: I’m a sneaker addict. I’m not quite sure when this all started, but for years now, I have been in love with sneakers. I own a ridiculous amount of pairs I’m not quite comfortable disclosing. Probably because it’s embarrassing. I cannot exactly wear sneakers to work. However, I can wear them almost everywhere else. Today I want to share how to style sneakers with style. Sneakers are getting increasingly popular and can be worn day to night. Styling them can be a tricky situation, especially since sneakers do look so good with workout clothes or athleisure. However, they can look extremely stylish if you pick the right pieces.

Apple Picking at Carter Mountain Orchard

Virginia is definitely a state for lovers. Charlottesville is a charming college town with so much to offer, especially during Fall. Carter Mountain Orchard is well known for apple picking. It’s the perfect activity to do with your beau. Johnny and I had so much fun picking out our favorite apples to bring home! I highly recommend going early in the season, so you’ll get more apples to choose from! This will mean better pictures, too. These photos are from last year but I didn’t get a chance to work on them and post until it was well after apple picking season. They were part of our trip to the Virginia Mountains. If apple picking is something you’re wanting to do this fall, I’m spilling some tips, as well as the two things we wish we knew before we embarked on this adventure!
