I wear a lot of skirts during the week, and I’m always on the lookout for something different to mix up my outfits. I spotted this skirt while shopping over the weekend and knew it would be a perfect addition to my skirt collection. I’m not an edgy person in terms of fashion, so I really love how the soft scalloping balances out a leather jacket and a printed top.

I am totally in love with the sweatshirt and skirt trend, and I have been lusting over this sweatshirt ever since its first appearance at J.Crew a couple months ago. Because of Columbus Day, there were so many great sales this weekend, and I scored this sweatshirt for 50% off! And now that the temperature is dropping again, I will probably wear it nonstop (I may have already worn it twice since I purchased it on Saturday…shhh!)

The days of wearing a tee and mini skirt (without tights) are coming to a close. It was a gorgeous weekend, so I took advantage of the last of the warm weather while I ran some errands. This skirt transitions so well into fall, and I’m already planning a couple outfits to wear during the upcoming months!

Green Smoothie

the 219
After my workout the other day, I purchased THE BEST smoothie I’ve ever had in my entire life. It was absolutely delicious, and I’ve been craving it ever since! It was the perfect blend of greens and protein, and it was SO healthy! Although I don’t think I could ever replicate that smoothie, I decided to make a green smoothie of my own.

99% of the time I’m a very healthy eater, so I was really excited to come home today and make this! I didn’t use a recipe and just tossed what I had in the kitchen into the blender. I used 2 apples (freshly picked from my apple trees!), 1 frozen banana, 4 strawberries, 5 kale leaves, a handful of spinach, 1/2 cup of pineapple, 1/4 cup of mandarin oranges, 1 tablespoon of local, organic honey and a splash of water. I don’t have rice protein (which was in my smoothie the other day), so that is the only thing missing. I wish I had it on hand, but even without it, my smoothie turned out to be so refreshing and healthy!
