|PAIR WITH A GRAPHIC TEE, JEAN JACKET, OR SPORTS SHIRT|
Maxi skirts are cute, comfy, and super easy to style! I love them because you can dress them up with a blazer or chiffon shirt, or you can dress them down with a jean jacket or T-shirt. I bought this black maxi skirt for $15.00 from Forever 21.
If you’re lazy and don’t always like to wear jeans (like me), ditch the yoga pants and get yourself a maxi skirt!
I’m one of those people who buy something and only wear it once, but I’m finally starting to get out of that habit. Here’s some of my favorite things I love (and overwear):
|Accessories, pointed flats and messy buns are my favorite things in life|
|So comfy and cute, how could I not overwear them?|
|Finally invested in a pair of cat eye sunglasses-
I always break mine, so I just got some Jennifer Lopez ones from Kohl’s
|Earrings- I feel naked without them. As you can probably tell, teal and blues are my favorite colors. I like to have unique earrings so I like to shop at local boutiques for them!|
|I love scarves, you can pair them with anything and they are great for any season!|
|Floppy hats and my Hello Kitty shirt from my best friend of course- Thanks Danielle!|
Some random favorites in life
|The Fault In Our Stars, if you haven’t read it, go read it- So amazing!|
|This Ralph Lauren gown from the Met Gala|
|and Yoga, of course|
Have a wonderful day!
As students, it’s so easy to become stressed and overwhelmed by our hectic schedules. About a year ago my old roommates and I found this tiny yoga studio in the West Loop that offered free community hot yoga classes. Walking to the yoga studio at 6:00 AM, we were all complaining about life, people, and school. By the time we finished the class and were walking back to our apartment we couldn’t find anything to complain about because we felt so good.
Because of my hectic schedule I wasn’t able to attend the classes anymore and I could feel all my stress building up. I now do my own yoga at home from YouTube videos or try to attend the classes my apartment offers. Sometimes we just don’t realize how busy we are, especially in the city, and we don’t make time for ourselves. We let the stress build up over time and eventually explode-or end up sick. I wanted to write this blog to inspire everyone to try yoga out and show some other things that help me unwind and de-stress.
To start off, here are some of the benefits of yoga
I’m always looking to try new yoga videos, and I just did this one and it’s really good for beginners. I also love that you get to cover yourself in a blanket at the end- I almost fell asleep.
|Tea is one of my favorite things in the world and has a ton of amazing health benefits. I always take the time to have a cup of tea at night. Tazo Tea has a “Zen” flavor mixed of green tea, lemongrass, and spearmint.|
