So guys, I am currently sitting in the living room, watching probably the most embarrassing movie ever created... That's right, I am choosing to sit through guiltily view "Bring It On: All or Nothing."  I can't help but root for underdog movies.  And no, I don't mean when the main character is an underdog.  I am talking about the entire movie being an underdog due to the fact that it is so horrible that it's downright amazing.  Want some more examples of such films?  I've got plenty of them [on DVD] -- Sydney White, Super Sweet 16: The Movie, New York Minute, and I saved the best for last: SPICE WORLD.

What's your favorite guilty pleasure?

Black & White Striped Blazer + A Pop of Color

Friday, July 26, 2013

Happy Friday!  What have you been up to?  As I mentioned previously, Matt & I have been doing "Insanity," and let me tell you guys: it is no joke.  Shaun T really knows how to push ya to your limits!  Even for those non-cardio loving folks, much like myself, he will whip your tush right into shape without you even realizing it.  I'm totally kidding.  Of course you'll notice -- because you will be sweating like you've never sweat before.  Every.  Single.  Day.  Phew!  It's crazy hard, but Matt and I both already feel improvement which makes it much easier to stick to it.

Anywaaay... Today's outfit is pretty straight forward: a bold blazer with a pretty pop of bright blue.  Hope you enjoy it!

^Shout out to Dakota in the background ;)

What is your favorite way to work out?  Wait, did I just ask for a "favorite workout?"  I mean, is there even such a thing?  For me, it's usually more "Ya gotta do it to live a long life so just do it, Allie" -- not so much "I LOOOVE TO EXERCISE!"  (Unless it's gymnastics or dance.  I love them both dearly but I'm not nearly as gifted in those departments as I was in my adolescent days so I stick to home workouts for now.)  I wish I was one of those peeps who loved fitness, but I'm just not.  Are you?  If so, tell me your secrets.  Please!

Graphic Tee | Two Places & Two Ways

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

Hi there! Today's post features a dolman graphic top that I just adore. It's super comfortable and the perfect "throw on and go" piece. Plus, I think it looks equally cute with shorts or jeans. Check out below to see how I styled the same tee for two separate occasions (and climates).

I just love pieces that are both practical and stylish at the same time. With this shirt, I can be comfortable but not look like a total slob. And that's always a plus, in my book!
