A Little Bit of Plaid


I don't know about you, but plaid in the fall is one of my favorites! Whether it is a scarf, top or jacket, I just can't have enough plaid during this time of year. It just makes me feel so festive! This top just screams fall and would you believe it is all one shirt. I love items like this because they are easy to style and look cute for both work and play. I will be styling this top with a skirt for work very soon! The top is sweatshirt material, so it keeps you warm too!

I paired it with some jeans, booties and my favorite velvet clutch for a dressier look. I think this would be a great date night look for dinner and the movies. Which is my favorite date night! 

Thank you so much for stopping by! xo, Nataly

Staying Motivated to Workout


HOW TO STAY MOTIVATED 

1. New Workout Clothes - I have said this before, but a new outfit for the gym always makes me feel better about going to workout. You don't have to go all out and buy a whole new outfit, but a couple of new pieces will get you back in the mood to get in shape.

2. Try New Classes or Gym - Not everyone enjoys the same style of workout. So, just because something works for someone, it might not work for you and that is okay! I know that I am not the type to go to a gym by myself and lift weights for hours, so I choose class settings. I have done Pilates for years now, but I am trying out a couple of different workouts right now. I am currently trying Curves for a month to see how I like it. Right now, I am LOVING it! But, I will also being testing out Orange Theory, which I have heard great things about. I am looking for the right fit and something that I will actually stick with!

3. Healthier Lifestyle - This is one of my biggest motivations right now. I sit for the majority of the day at work, so I feel really lazy after a long day. I am trying to make it a point to eat better, take a walk during the day and drink more water.

4. Self Confidence - I don't know about you, but after a workout I feel like I can take on the world. I feel better about my body and the way I look (after workout glow 😂). I am not trying to loose weight or anything, just trying to feel better about me!

5. Workout Partner - A workout partner or someone who can help motivate you to get your butt in the gym is always a good idea. I wish my husband and I were on the same work schedule otherwise, I would make him workout with me.

Pleated Grey Skirt


Happy Friday friends! We are dog sitting for my parents this weekend and I also have a fun workout event tonight. I will be sharing snaps of the evening, so be sure to follow along

I might have a new obsession...pleated skirts! There is just something so elegant and chic about a pleated skirt. It takes your average skirt up a couple of notches with the added details. This one I picked up thinking it would be more midi length, but I actually like it a bit longer. Paired with these block heels it is the perfect length! I decided to make this look a little more edgy with my leather jacket. Ideally I would wear this to an event or date night.

About sizing: This is another one of those items that is "one-size". The waist band is elastic and fits like a small/medium. I felt comfortable in it and didn't have any issues with it being too tight. I also think the quality of the skirt is pretty good for the lower price.

P.S. It seems like most of you are on board for posting 3 times a week here on the blog. So, the new schedule with take effect starting in November. I will go to posting Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Thank you so much for your feedback! I truly appreciate it.

Velvet One Shoulder Top


Ever since I posted this velvet dress a couple of weeks ago I have been eager to add more velvet pieces to my closet. I spotted this ruffle one-sleeve top online shopping and quickly added it to my cart. I just can't help it, I am loving all the velvet right now! With the cooler weather arriving in Dallas I have also busted out my over the knee boots. Another one of my fall obsessions! I picked these boots up a couple of seasons ago and still love them! I linked a couple of similar options below.

I have been thinking about changing up my posting schedule here on the blog. I talked a little bit about it on my insta-stories last night, but I wanted to let you all know too. I am thinking maybe posting 3 times a week instead of 5 times. It's not that I can't handle the 5 posts, but, I am looking to create more quality content, longer posts and better photos. What do you all think? Do you like me posting 5 times a week here or would you rather see only 3 times a week? I would love to hear your feedback.

Thank you so much for reading! xo, Nataly

Red Lace Up Sweater


Happy Wednesday friends! The lace-up sweater trend was a favorite of mine from last year and it seems that the trend is coming back again this year. But, with a bit of a twist. All the lace-up details seem to be mixed in on the sleeves, down the front or all over. I picked out this sweater a couple of weeks ago and I am really happy with it. It is inexpensive, but doesn't feel cheap or itchy. It is one of those "one-size" items and I think it fits more like a small/medium. The arms are a little long, but I don't mind the over-sized look.

The fall weather seems to have hit Dallas. Yesterday morning, we finally got a little bit of a cool front. It was in the 50s this morning when I was walking into work. It was a little chilly, but I am ready to bust out all the sweaters, scarves and hats!

Thank you so much for reading! xo, Nataly
