Watching Stars on Ice :: A Former Figure Skater’s Take

Wearing a simple navy blue-button down over a white t-shirt and black slacks, Nathan Chen flies across the ice to a self-choreographed program. The crowd inside the NYCB LIVE’S Nassau Coliseum is entranced by him as he completes his program, set to a song titled “Next to Me” by Otto Knows. This was the third time I’ve gotten to see Nathan skate live and it’s obvious he has gotten better each time.Nathan, along with some of America’s top figure skaters, are on tour with Stars on Ice. The tour will be stopping in 13 cities and bringing world-class figure skating to crowds across the country. As a former figure skater, it’s always a treat to watch skating of this caliber in person. As I mentioned in this previous post, Johnny and I happened to be in New York City the few days before the show’s Long Island stop for work. Figure skating will always be a big part of my life, so I’m excited to share my Stars on Ice experience.

Stars on Ice :: The Skating Show You Have to See

It may come as no surprise Johnny and I are huge figure skating fans. After all, my first real international trip was the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea! I’m excited to share in addition to a lot of work meetings, Johnny and I are heading to New York City to watch Stars on Ice! The United States tour kicks off tonight in Ft. Meyers, Florida and we are very excited to watch the second stop in Long Island. It’s crazy how life works, sometimes. I’ve had a NY trip planned to meet with brands about projects I’m working on. Fortunately, the Stars on Ice tour happens to be in New York the same weekend! To say we are ecstatic would be an understatement.

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!

Cable Knit Sweater & Paper Bag Mini Skirt

Hey Y’all! This is so crazy there are only a few days left in 2017! I’m so ready for 2018 to arrive and for all the exciting things I have planned. It’s much colder in Dallas than I had anticipated. I’m living in cozy sweaters so I love being able to tuck them into a cute skirt such as this gingham paper bag mini skirt. I love a good gingham piece for fall and winter because you can restyle them so many ways. This gingham paper bag mini skirt would be chic with any color blouse or sweater. Sadly, this skirt sold out. However, this is a super similar version and looks so cute on. The paper bag trend is actually quite chic if you pair it with the right item. I’m wearing size US 2, which fits beautifully. This skirt also comes in leather and suede.

Shades of Gray for Work :: Check Midi Dress & Coat

I love a good check pattern in the fall and winter. I’m teaming up with River Island to bring you this chic work outfit perfect for chilly days. This gray check midi dress has a conservative cut with its high neckline. However, the asymmetrical frill detailing in the front gives this dress a twist and modern look. In the winter, I love to layer, so high neck pieces such as this check midi dress are perfect. I have cashmere shells that keep me warm and try to wear them with everything. This dress is a lovely jersey fabric with more of a bodycon fit. I recommend sizing up if you are between sizes. I’m wearing a US 2, which skims over my body. ..
