If you guys watched my instagram story today you’ll know I got the chance to do an instagram takeover at my local Nordstrom! It was so fun! My friend Jess and I got to go eat, get our makeup and brows done, and I have a huge dressing room try on session! So I decided to post the try on photos and link my favorite things! P.S. Don’t judge the photos! They’re just dressing room selfies and some are screenshots from the videos I posted!!
Give me a good band tee and jeans and my whole day just gets better.
This is my official summer uniform. Denim cutoffs, graphic tee, and sneakers. Who’s with me?!
I am actually really excited to share this brand with you! I got this cute jacket and sports bra from Zyia Active and I’m not going to lie, I wore the bra like three days in a row because it’s so freaking cute. I also love this cute white workout jacket. It’s perfect for spring due to the the ever changing weather! One day it’s 30 degrees and the next it’s 70! It’s very lightweight and you can bunch it up into a little ball or tie it around your waist if it gets too hot!
My leggings are from Lysse and they are perfect to wear to work out or at your leisure. The criss cross detail transforms basic leggings to a fashion piece! Look for them in their “weekend lounge” section!
When I saw these adorable lavender Adidas sneakers at Tillys I immediately fell in love. How cute is the color? It’s the perfect way to start off your spring wardobe! I tend to base my outfits around what shoes I want to wear, so I’m sure you’ll be seeing a lot of these cuties!
Today I have another update on my recent workout plan! If you haven’t read any of my previous posts, I’ve been working out with Trainer Kelli and her fitness app Level 212 Fitness. I’ve upped my workout schedule from three workouts a week to four to five. I’m going to be 100% honest in this post. I’m tired. Working out, especially when you haven’t been consistent for a long time, wears you out. I am sore. I keep asking everyone if that ever goes away or if you get used to it. I’m also frustrated. I think I’m in that transitional phase where my body is still getting used to everything. I feel like I’ve been working out so hard, but it’s hard to see my progress right now. But I can feel it.
I love the slouchy fit of this quilted bomber jacket from Free People. It’s such a different take on a regular bomber. Normally I hear bomber and I immediatly think of a military green kind of silky looking jacket, so I love this dusty pink color and the quilted details! The quilting also makes it much warmer than a regular bomber jacket as well, so that makes it perfect for winter!
I have also been a little bit obsessed with these mantrabands lately. I love them for the new year because I like having a little reminder on my wrist every day that helps me keep my goals and remember my “mantras” if you will. I love wearing them all together as a stack, but some days I just add one for a little detailed reminder. I think my favorite right now is “Live What You Love”. What one would you pick?
Jacket – Free People; Sweater – Free People; Jeans – Joe’s Jeans; Sneakers – Adidas; Earrings – c/o Truly Kustom; Bracelets – All Mantraband – Infinite Love, Fearless, To the Moon and Back, Live What You Love

I am obsessed with these shoes. For some reason animal print just seems to call out to me. But mostly I want to tell you about…
Unicity Matcha. It’s a powder that you mix into a drink for natural energy. It’s formula helps to boost your metabolism, increases your energy, and improves you mental clarity. I’ve mostly been using the energy formula for a couple weeks now, but they also have one for focus. I’m going to tell you a little secret as well…it looks disgusting, but it actually tastes really good. Anyway, I like to drink it in the morning on my way to work and it helps me all day! I don’t get that afternoon slump and I feel like I’m able to concentrate so much better! Some people like to drink it around that afternoon time…you know what I’m talking about, when you’re sitting at work and you can’t keep your head up anymore…but if I drink it in the morning I’m fine all day. I still feel like I’m more awake when I want to work out at night too. I really like it because I don’t drink soda. I’m not a Diet Coke fiend, but this helps so much! I don’t feel like you get the crash afterwards.
I totally recommend trying it if you’re feeling low on energy or if you want to boost your workout a little bit. Click the link above to read more about the ingredients and other benefits! Also, if you want to try it, you can get their new water bottle for free with your purchase of the 7-day pack until the end of January. Use code: kristinmatcha
