I am excited to be writing my first “studio to street” post for you all! I have been wanting to do some transitional outfit ideas that can take you from different workout classes to street activities. I hope they are fun and helpful! For this look, I have partnered with JORD Watches to show how a stylish watch can elevate your street look! I am a nature loving girl, so the organic look of this hand-finished wood watch is perfect for me and reminds me of the outdoors! Studio Look: Sports Bra or Tank with Leggings For your studio outfit, start with your basic activewear pieces. Here I opted for a simple, black sports bra and leggings combo for a yoga class. It’s nice to wear tighter, more form fitting pieces for yoga classes so everything stays in place while doing bends and down-dogs. You could also try patterned leggings…

Silver Icing “Eh Team” Leggings Some of you may know that my original hometown is Vancouver, Canada. I still have family and friends in different parts of Canada and I am a duel citizen. My family goes back to visit occasionally but we don’t frequent Vancouver as much as I would like. I have the fondest memories growing up in the Kitsilano or “Kits” neighborhood of Vancouver and taking daily walks along the seawall in Stanley Park or to Granville Island Marketplace to feed the pigeons (I can still remember the smell of that place so distinctly- whenever it comes to me, tons of good memories come flooding over me). As a kid, it was so much fun to watch the master kite fliers down by the marina and the amazing sand castle competitions in the summertime. Vancouver is a unique city in my opinion- offering amazing city life as…

Hi guys! I wanted to do a little round up of 4 of my favorite functional and cute workout tanks for women! So keep scrolling and I hope you see something you like 🙂 Similar Top: Here 1. Akrovita Top I recently purchased this top from the brand Akrovita, which I found on Instagram, and it has quickly become one of my favorite workout tops! It has a silky feel and is super lightweight which makes it nice and breathable for sweaty workouts. I have just started going to Soul Sweat dance classes and it’s the best, most fun way to sweat! I love the open back cutout to show off your strappy sports bra and to get some extra air ventilation. Definitely a new favorite! Prana Similar Tops: Here and Here and Here Love This One 2. Prana Top I don’t own a ton of patterned clothes, but I just loved these…

Leggings: Zella Nordstrom (old) similar, similar, love these too | Top: Lululemon (old) similar, similar | Flip Flops: Havaianas I recently picked up these Zella leggings from Nordstrom and am loving them! They are the first piece of clothing I’ve tried from the Zella brand and they do not disappoint. Zella is an in-house Nordstrom brand, so they can only be found there or at Nordstrom Rack, but with Nordstrom’s easy FREE shipping, I’m ok with it! I love that the leggings are high waisted (no muffin top please!) and their light color and pattern are perfect for spring and summer! I have so many black pairs of leggings, so I wanted to mix it up a bit and these are fun and different without being too crazy 🙂 They have a good fitted feel and stay in place for workouts, yoga, hiking, etc. Also, the mesh detailing makes them very breathable…

Hi friends! I have decided to do a little series on exercises and stretches for different parts of the body that are simple yet effective. Today I am focusing on the hips. Many people, including myself, are quite stiff in their hips and it’s an important area of the body to strengthen and increase flexibility. When we are stiff, anywhere in our bodies, it becomes easier to injure ourselves. When muscles and tendons are tight, then they can more easily cause an injury even just from lifting heavy furniture or jumping into an intense workout, exercise, or sport. So it is very important to open and stretch out all the different areas of the body. You don’t necessarily have to stretch out every single muscle group everyday – maybe focus on an area per day or try a yoga sequence that targets most areas of the body. These  stretches below…

Leggings: Shop DYI, Also love these and these white ones, and these with mesh cutouts, marble sport bra;  Denim jacket: Similar, on sale; Navy Tee: Similar; Bag: Similar; Shoes: Keds, love these Adidas Have you noticed how popular the marble trend has become? I’m seeing it everywhere! From laptop and phone cases, to marble manicures, to marble clothes, to home goods, to flat lays on Instagram. I think it’s such a fun pattern to incorporate into your home and style! It can be easy to go overboard though. I personally prefer to add it in small touches as an accent as opposed to covering your entire home and wardrobe in this wild print. This is my first piece of marble clothing and I was happy to find these leggings from Shop DYI and they are actually now on sale! They are high waisted which I love and stay in place for workouts and yoga (I…

Top : Similar Here and Here,  Love this one, on sale, Shorts: Similar Here and Here, Love this romper, on sale If you’ve read some of my other posts, such as My Travel Bucket List, then you know how much I love the ocean and beach! I grew up by the beach, in Vancouver Canada, until I was 10 years old and my family would walk to the beach almost everyday! We took walks along the Stanley Park seawall, had picnics in the sand, splashed in the (freezing) waves, and watched people play beach volleyball. I could never get tired of listening to the waves crash against the shore. Just sitting, listening, and watching the waves feels like a form of meditation to me (the easiest!). The sea gives me a sense of freedom, expansion, and power that I haven’t found anywhere else in Nature. While my husband, Tristan, and I…

Modified Plank / Push-Up – Works arms and abs  Hey Friends! We are now a few months into the new year and I am proud to say that I have been sticking to my fitness goal of working out 3-4 times per week! Honestly, in the past I had not kept a workout rhythm. I would dabble in different exercises and try different studios (which is still fun to mix things up!), but I wasn’t consistent. I finally wondered to myself, “I take the time to eat clean and healthy and incorporate superfoods and herbs into my diet, but why can’t I exercise regularly? Something has to change!” And it has! My body and mind feel so much better after a workout, even if it’s just a quick one. While I am exercising my mind is so focused on getting through a movement or posture, that I am not thinking…

 Leggings, Boots, Sweater: Similar Here and Here Bag: Similar Here, Love This One and This One Scarf: Here and Here As the weather here slowly begins to transition to spring, cardigans are my best friend! We still get chilly days (and some snow) so my Sorel boots are still getting some use. But when it isn’t so cold that I don’t need to wear my huge puffy coat, I love opting for a cardigan and this neutral long cardigan outfit has definitely been on repeat these days! I love pairing neutrals together for a relaxed (hint: easy!) and sophisticated look. This one from Abercrombie has been an excellent addition to my wardrobe! It’s so easy to pair with almost anything since it’s neutral colors, but the texture and print makes it more interesting and adds some dimension to a look. Cardigans are also a great thing to throw on over your active wear after a workout to look a…
