I'm a jumpsuit girl. Therefore, when I spotted this classic number on the rack at Lily & Sparrow, naturally, I had to try it on. And it didn't disappoint! With its flowy form and cinched waist, it's both comfortable and flattering. Pair it with this lace sleeve blazer, and you have the perfect date night outfit!

lately in photos

It has been a slow winter. With nine inches of snow in March, it seems as though Spring is ages away. I feel like a tree reaching high hoping for the sun to cure my winter woes. So until those warmer days arrive, I will choose to embrace the simple joys of lazy winter days.

 Our new favorite place in the city is Milktooth. Everything about it is a dream!

layers and lace

I'm starting to get tired of the same old jeans, sweater, and boots combo. Therefore, I decided to channel my inner prairie girl and change it up a bit. I couldn't resist this darling lace slip and dress by Free People paired with a FP sweater I've had since 8th grade! If you were wondering about the quality of Free People, here's your proof, my friends!

Let's talk about these boots! They are the most comfortable pair I own. Very lightweight and versatile. I also love them with fleece leggings or my skinny jeans. And I can't wait to pair them with fun shorts and spring dresses. I'll definitely be wearing these all year long!

Winter Days + Oversized Sweaters

Who doesn't love an oversized sweater? This chunky oversized pullover by Free People is perfection with it's high-low hem and soft stitching. Pair it with your favorite skinnies or fleece lined leggings. Trust me, you'll be tempted to wear it every day.

Oils in January

I love Januaries. Despite the bitter cold and gloomy days, I love the new beginning this month brings.  Specifically, I'm using this new year as a chance to get my health in order again. After a year of directing most of my focus on the new salon, I'm finally finding the time and energy to direct some focus back to my health and wellbeing!

I'm not as keen on the negative feeling "breaking habits" brings, but instead thinking of it as "creating new {better} habits". And since we could all use the accountability from time to time, I thought it best to just put mine out there over the next month.

At the top of my list is the habit of using oils daily.  Whether it be to support my health, emotional wellbeing, or sleep routine; I find that oils make me feel better. I've seen and experienced impressive changes in both the mister and I over the last few months due to the goodness of these little bottles.

Two of my favorite oils at the moment are Grapefruit and Purification.

I add the Grapefruit to my water and find that the refreshing taste helps me drink more. As we all know, a hydrated body is key to our health. I aim to drink at least 64 ounces a day. And the grapefruit taste makes it a lot easier to achieve.

Purification is our best friend during the winter months. With the house all closed up, I diffuse it throughout the house to purify our air.

What new and better habits are you wanting to develop in 2015? If using oils is among your list, I would love to help you begin your oil journey!
