Happy Wednesday, friends! We're halfway through the work week and I couldn't be more excited. We've had some slightly cooler weather here lately and while I've never been one to wish away warm weather, I'm really loving the sweater weather vibes.

One of my absolute favorite sweater trends for the season has to be chenille. I love the velvety vibe and how the style really seems to easily make an outfit. I recently grabbed my first new style for the season and it's this BP. Chenille Funnel Neck Sweater from Nordstrom.

This sweater also comes in a charcoal gray and ash pink but I loved the warm tone of this "brown bronze" color. It screams fall and just has a really rich look when paired with your favorite denim, plus I think will be great for the holidays. It has a slightly oversized feel mainly under the arms but I happen to love the silhouette and it still feels shapely and flattering. The funnel neck is also really effortless.

I wore mine with a lighter wash for a more casual day-date look this past weekend but it pairs really nicely with a dark wash for something a bit more dressed up, as well. Did I mention this Free People denim is only $78? 🙌🏼

I'm still not bringing out my boots just yet but I've been loving swapping out my sandals for close-toed styles like slides and loafers. In my opinion, nude flats are a must (they go with everything and make legs look longer), so I had no qualms about adding a new pair to my collection.

These Halogen Sylvia loafers from Nordstrom are my new favorite. I'm not sure if you can tell from my photos but the heel is actually collapsible meaning you can wear them as full-on loafers or slip-on slides. They are buttery soft and I found they didn't have any break-in period. I think they'll also be perfect for both work and play. They come in a ton of color options, including suede styles for the season and I highly recommend them.

I'm in between sizes and I went with the half size up in these shoes and they fit perfectly. In the sweater, I'm wearing the xs. 

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the rest of your week!

TruFusion Workout in Vegas

TruFusion Aerial Yoga

Happy Monday, friends! I'm so excited to finally share details from my experience at TruFusion during my trip to Vegas a couple weeks ago. Coming home just a few days before the devastating shooting was such a surreal experience and I've been keeping the city in my thoughts after such a tragedy. 

Heading to Vegas for pretty much my first "blogger trip" was an exciting moment for me but, if I'm being completely honest, it was also really challenging on my self-esteem. Meeting and being around other bloggers is amazing yet I still found myself worrying, stressing and comparing. 

I was worried about what I would wear, how I would look in my workout clothes, how on EARTH I was going to get content while sweating, all on top of just hoping I'd make it through the workouts. I like to consider myself a pretty fit person but my usual workouts have taken a hit this year and I'm used to working out in the comfort of my own home, in front of a fitness instructor on my AppleTV and definitely NOT in front of Alex Rodriquez and Jennifer Lopez. 

As intimidating as the thought was, I feel like it's so important to push yourself and find motivation even in the unknown and I'm so thankful TruFusion got me out of my comfort zone. 

TruFusion Aerial Yoga

We started the day with aerial yoga which was something completely new to me. I was a bit worried about upper-body strength (or lack thereof) and coordination (again, major lack thereof) but it turned out to be my absolute favorite part of the day. I loved getting to learn a few poses and our instructor was amazing. She made me feel completely comfortable and secure with the movements we were doing.

This is a workout I can definitely see being great for stretching and improving flexibility but I also just felt like it was a good stress-reliever and the perfect way to start the day. Have you tried it?

Our aerial yoga class lasted about an hour and after that, we had a snack and water break before gearing up for our next class. The TruFusion studio is incredible and they actually have a juice and smoothie bar inside, which was really nice. I filled up with a protein-packed chocolate banana shake and we got to sit down with Alex Rodriguez and hear him talk about his partnership with TruFusion before heading to our boot camp.

TruFusion Bootcamp Class

This is the workout we got to do with J.Lo and A-Rod and it's TruFusion's signature bootcamp. When I learned this class was heated, I have to admit I was pretty nervous. A "bootcamp" on its own sounds intimidating but adding heat takes it to a whole new level.

We got to set up our mats with everything we needed for the class (free weights, kettlebell, etc) and waited for the room to pack with people. Did I mention the majority of these people were also backup dancers for J.Lo and Access Hollywood was filming the entire class?? 

As nervous as I know several of us girls were, this class ended up being really awesome and even a lot of fun. The workout itself felt great and was the perfect combination of yoga, pilates, kettlebells and other movements and also incorporated some dance moves to mix it up and keep it fresh and fun. I'm proud to say I finished the class and even kept up but it was also clear that you were perfectly welcome to go at your own pace.

TruFusion Bootcamp

The thing I loved about TruFusion was that it's not a "one trick pony" fitness center. You don't have to only join a yoga studio. Or only sign up for spin class. You're not limited to Barre or Pilates or boot camps. You have it all under one roof and you get to pick and choose what makes sense for you, encouraging you to Find Your Edge. They have over 65 different styles of classes and a membership gets you unlimited access to all of them, so you can mix it up as much as you want.

TruFusion is set to open up new locations next year—including San Francisco!—so I definitely recommend checking them out and taking a peek at some of the classes they offer. I really think it's great for everyone.

Thank you for reading and have a great week!

If you don't already have an olive handbag in your collection, I can assure you, you need one! Consider olive a neutral—it goes with everything! And in my opinion, adding a pop of olive in your accessories is really one of the easiest ways to make an outfit in an instant. The color can take you from season to season but I especially love it for fall.

When I'm looking to add a new bag to my collection, I instantly beeline to Rebecca Minkoff. I don't even want to tell you how many of her bags I own. Her styles are so classic yet on-trend and I love how they usually have an edgy detail like metallic hardware and zippers. The price point is incredibly reasonable for a designer brand and I've found myself buying the same bag in multiple colors because they're that good. I swear. 

I recently snagged a new (to me) style from Zappos and it's the Mini Mac. You guys, this bag is so good! A crossbody style will forever be my go-to (being hands-free is a must for me) and I also think it's incredibly effortless. I love how it can easily take you from day to night—her crossbody bags are always what I reach for date night or girls night without fail. It's the perfect size to fit your wallet, phone, keys, lip balm, etc. without feeling bulky. 

Zappos has such an amazing collection of Rebecca Minkoff bags (and shoes!) in all different tones and silhouettes but if you don't have a bag in olive, I highly recommend snagging one. Think about your favorite jeans and t-shirt + moto jacket combo. Now add an olive bag. 🙌🏼 Your cozy fall sweaters just got cooler with an olive bag, too. 🙌🏼 For me, I love giving my denim skirt a fall twist with a bomber jacket, booties and, of course, olive bag. What is your must-have bag for fall? 

Thanks for reading and enjoy your fall!
