She's a Wanderer; Outfit Inspiration for the Wanderer in You. February 05 2014, 0 Comments

This past weekend I was able to take a trip down to Big Sur, California. If you haven't been there, it's on the coast of California. Highway 1 is one of the most amazing drives you could ever take. The views of the ocean are spectacular and the vast ocean views really put things into perspective for me.

Hiking has always been a huge hobby of mine. I always feel most at peace near the ocean and around nature. Above I wore the most simple yet cute outfit for hiking; Dear John boyfriend denim, ankle boots, and a flannel to top it all off. 

I love taking trips like this because it really inspires me in so many ways as well as inspires my outfit choices. 
If you decide to stop by Big Sur, be sure to go to Nepenthe. It's the most beautiful restaurant that looks over the pacific ocean. Their food is incredible and the view is unbeatable!
Here's some outfit ideas I came up with that are easy and comfortable if you're considering taking a long drive to a inspirational destination yourself. 

 

This first one was on the drive to down to Big Sur. Ripped boyfriend Denim new in shop, a basic white tank with a bralette, and a tribal cardigan. Boyfriend denim and geometric patterns are going to be HUGE trends this spring so be sure to grab yours at our store before they run out!

This next one was for our hike. I brought along with me my slouchy beanie and fingerless gloves to keep warm on our rainy hike. We only have a few left in store, so be sure to grab yours soon!

Morning Yoga for Beginners in Under 10 Minutes! January 17 2014, 1 Comment

Rise and shine! It happens to me every morning; the terrible struggle to get out of bed.  Between my cozy warm bed, fat purring cat, and soft sheets the LAST thing I want to do is get out of bed.

But my pesky alarm clock wont let up so i reluctantly remove my now disgruntled cat from my chest and roll out of bed into what I call RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN TO PUT ON WARMER CLOTHES BECAUSE NOW I'M FREEZING COLD. I thought to myself, there has to be a better way to wake up in the morning.

 So, I don't have a solution to the imminent freezing sensation of getting out of bed. But when I do, you will all be the first to know. 

BUT as i was perusing Pinterest (my absolute FAVORITE website) I came across some daily morning yoga posses. 

I'm the kind of person who sleeps until the LAST possible moment, so my first thought was, I do NOT have time for morning yoga. But I hated the grumpy mood I would be in more than taking 10 a few minuets to stretch out before my shower.  

 

So, here it is to you, my final list of my favorite yoga stretches to start off your day. These are BEGINNER poses, because lets be honest, the majority of us don;t feel like being a contortionist first thing in the morning, and IF you do, I tip my hat to you!

 

Hold each pose for 30 seconds and repeat on the opposite side when necessary. Make sure to focus on your breathing. Count on the inhale and breathe out all tension and stress on the exhale. 

 

 

Now waking up is slightly more tolerable, and I can start my day on a positive note! Enjoy and happy stretching!
