LET’S WALK

Hollywood, CA

Since my office is on the beach and the lifestyle over on the west side of town is more active, I find myself walking more than ever! And while I live in Los Angeles where daily step standards are pretttty low, I have also been doing quite a bit of traveling and exploring so let's just say I am a walking pro these days. That being said, I have traded in my office heels for sneakers and swapped my travel booties for cute flats. 

The best part about all of this? Sneaker trends are at an all-time high. Thus rocking comfy kicks with a dress or skirt is totally acceptable. In fact, it's the look that fashion girls all over the world are sporting these days. 

My latest obsession? These metallic Rockport Let's Walk Sneakers. They put a spin on traditional style by mixing shimmer and darker tones. I love that they are slip-ons because it makes them even easier to throw on and go.  Oh and now you can take 25% off a pair when you use the code: ROCKPORTBLOGGER25

OJAI ESCAPE

Ojai, CA

Last month, my Mum came out and visited from New Hampshire. I took her to Ojai for a belated Mother’s Day gift, and though we were only in town for a night, we had the best time. We explored the eclectic little shops (Fig is my favorite), went wine tasting at Ojai Valley Winery, and had the prettiest dinner on the lawn at Ojai Valley Inn. Only an hour and a half outside of LA, Ojai is quickly becoming my new favorite escape spot. More specifically, the Inn is truly an oasis unlike any hotel I’ve stayed at in years. From the views to the magical little lanterns in the trees, I haven’t felt that relaxed in a while.

On our way to dinner, my Mum snapped a few photos of me in this striped maxi dress. It’s so comfy yet the deep v neckline gives it a dressier feel. Because we wanted to do a bit of exploring and walking around the grounds, I wore my new Vionic wedge sandals. Made for comfort, I definitely need to invest in a few more pairs of these for my upcoming summer travel plans.

Sometimes it's nice to switch things up. I used to despise my AM routine but lately, I have been waking up early to workout before hitting the office. I've been going between running (jogging) outside for 30 min, doing Amanda Kloots' dance cardio videos (HOLY AMAZING) and a whole slew of other at-home workouts thanks to the POPSUGAR FITNESS website.  I've only been doing it for a few weeks but it's already changed my morning mood and (hopefully soon) my butt.  Do you guys have any other fitness recs? For the first time in forever I am really excited about wearing yoga pants. Let's hope it lasts!

That being said, today's look is casual and perfect for a weekend brunch with friends. The sweater is incredibly affordable and was actually meant to be worn with the knot facing the front. However, I really loved it in the back much better.  What do you think? Am I going overboard with my changes? Or does this one work?
