As of late, I have been living in workout clothes, and I’m not ashamed of it. Don’t get me wrong, I still dress up when going to dinner or a night out. But day to day, when I’m running errands, grocery shopping, picking up dry cleaning, returning something to the mall…running tights and a comfy top have been my go-to. It also helps motivate me to work out later because I’m already dressed for it!
This is one of the reasons why I’m obsessed with Albion Fit. I feel like wearing their fitness apparel makes me want to work out. You truly do look and feel your best in their adorable fitness tights or super comfy & lightweight tops.
I don’t know about you, but packing stresses me out. Even if it’s for a super fun beach trip or weekend get away. So, if you’re anything like me and have a similar packing anxiety, hopefully this packing guide will help you out on your next summer trip! These are a few items I think should be in every girls suitcase for a weekend getaway – whether it’s a girls trip, a romantic getaway with your hubs, or a family vacation.
This is such a necessity for walking down to the pool, a casual breakfast with your favorite maxi skirt, or going into town for shopping.
Really, do yourself a favor and invest in a good pair of cutoff shorts. By that I mean, ones that won’t fall apart after you wash them one time. One Teaspoon is both mine and Lo’s favorite brand for denim shorts.
A few pair I either have or have been majorly crushing on recently

What are some of your summer vacay packing essentials?!
It’s no secret that I have a slight (or major) obsession, both with white dresses & off-the-shoulder. Which explains why I instantly fell in love with this eyelet off-the-shoulder white dress. I think the struggle with white dresses is that too often, there’s nothing special about them and they look like every other little white dress. I love how unique this one is though – with the drop waistline and ruffles. It’s so girly & summery & perfect for summer vacations!
Confession: I’ve developed a slight addiction to the six:02 website. I’ve always loved buying working out clothes and truly feel like you can never have enough. However, until discovering six02.com, I’ve never been an online shopper for fitness apparel.
Six:02 in general, but specifically their website, truly is my one stop shop for all things fitness. Their website is super easy to navigate – whether you’re looking for running shoes, a sports bra, or a new tank. You can shop by “activity” (ie: running, yoga, dance…), you can shop by brand (I, obviously, am partial to Nike). They also have a “get fit guide” if you’re not sure what you need or how to shop for it!
If you’re needing some extra motivation right now to work out, start with getting one or two work out outfits from six02 that you look & feel great in – I promise it helps!
As many of you know, I recently went on a girls trip to Mexico with my mom and sisters, which was SO fun and I’m already ready to go back! The first thing you shop for when heading to the beach is typically a swimsuit and/or coverup. Like most girls, I kind of dread swimsuit shopping with every fiber in my being. This year I’ve opted out of the dreaded fitting room fiascos with bathing suits and have just shopped for mine online – thanks to sunbain.com and swimwear360.com. (Warning: you can easily spend hours upon hours on both of these websites!)
I really love both of these websites for swimsuit shopping for two reasons:
They both have so many options. Often times when I go to department stores or specialty swimwear shops, I feel like I have about 50 choices, at the most. These websites have hundreds and hundreds of options – so many different styles and cuts and prints.
Both Sunbain and Swimwear360 have brands and options that you don’t see everywhere. There’s nothing more embarrassing than showing up at the country club pool, twinning with the girl on the lounge chair next to you. I thought both these websites had really unique brands, with really reasonable pricing.
What are some of your favorite online places to shop for swimsuits?! I hope you love Sunbain & Swimwear360 as much as I do! xx
I like to think of memorial day as the most wonderful time of year (second only to Christmas, of course). SO many amazing sales & the perfect time to update your summer wardrobe! One of the best sales going on right now is the Nordstrom half yearly sale. I created a little roundup below of a few of my top picks from the sale!
