First of all, whether I am working out, trying to be comfortable while running errands, or lounging on a Saturday, Albion Fit has the most comfortable clothing! Their leggings are seriously the softest, but most supportive things you’ve ever put on.

The shirts and jackets are amazing too. Soooo soft. I love them. Not to mention they are adorable and very high quality.

 Albion Fit also strives to be environmentally concious. They are committed to the environment and making their facilities greener each day by recycling and using earth friendly products.

Bright Blue + Spread the Love Giveaway + Brows that Wow!

Today I’ve got a fun skirt for you and a giveaway! So don’t forget to scroll all the way down or you will miss out! There is a big cash giveaway and some other prizes! AND…I have a special surprise for those of you that know how much I love European Wax Center! Keep scrolling!!!!

I loved this skirt when I first saw it, but I always have the hardest time buying skirts that I don’t want to wear tights with in the winter because it’s so cold here. But it went on sale with an extra 30% off right after Christmas so I had to get it, plus I got to wear it down in California for my brother’s farewell and it was crazy warm down there so it worked out perfectly I think!

My brother’s farewell was amazing. He’s such a great kid. He’s so grown up and I’m so proud of him. I’m going to miss him so much, but he’s where he is supposed to be and he’s going to be amazing. We had a big open house for him and so many people came out to see him off. It was really fun.


Skirt – Anthropologie; Blouse – Joie (similar here); Shoes – Steve Madden (similar here); Bag – J.Crew (similar); Watch – Marc by Marc Jacobs; Rings – Francesca’s Collections, old ring of my mom’s; Necklace – Handmade by my dad for my mom.
