Even though I’m in the Dominican Republic right now, it doesn’t mean it isn’t sweater weather back home. It’s actually been raining since I left so this is an appropriate post (well, maybe minus the mini skirt). Basically I’m wearing head to toe Rebecca Minkoff except for my Henri Bendel bag. I love this look since it’s a total uniform I’d wear on a regular basis. I am all about easy pieces I can throw on and this is one of them. A skirt, sweater and booties is definitely one of my “go-to’s.” Right now, Rebecca Minkoff has a ton of sweater options too that I’m totally obsessed with, you can check them out here. Happy hump day guys!
Lately I’ve been really working on getting into shape. If you’ve been following me on Instagram and Snapchat then you probably already know this but since I have gotten a lot of questions about it I thought I’d share more about it here! I really just wanted to get into shape, tone up and start working out regularly and make it a priority in my life. Since I am really bad at motivating myself, I decided the best way to do this was to get a personal trainer and really give it my all. So I committed, forked up the $ (and yes, it was a lot) and invested in it. I have to say though, I haven’t regretted it since.
Now, Apologies on the iPhone photo but I wanted to show you guys a progress pic and this was about the only one I had since well — I don’t have my photographer taking these of me, LOL. This is only about 3 weeks into my training and I’ve already seen huge results. I’ve definitely leaned out a TON and started to develop muscle in all the right places.
For those of you wondering about my fitness routine and what I’ve been doing I’ve been working with a trainer 3 times a week for more intense training and then on my off days I head to the gym and do about 20-30 mins of cardio. I take about 1-2 days off during the week from the gym also (Usually Sunday and another day unless I can make it to the gym). In terms of diet I’ve completely restricted that as well. On the days that I do my heavy workouts with my trainer I can have have protein, vegetables and carbs (but good carbs like whole wheat, brown rice, sweet potatoes etc..). Then on my days that I don’t work out with my trainer I have no carbs (which is about 4 days). At first when I heard no carbs I thought I wouldn’t be able to survive but I promise it gets so much easier. Sticking to this method, I’ve seen a total change in my body in about 3-4 weeks time.
Now I am in the Dominican Republic and I am keeping up the same routine even though I don’t have my trainer. Prior to leaving he taught me all the exercises I could while away and without a gym (and trust me, there are a LOT) so I am all set and I’ve been working at it even while here. As far as eating goes, I’ve also stuck to my diet for the most part. Here there is tons of fresh fish so my meals have pretty much consisted of fish and vegetables! On my workout day (which was today) I treated myself to a little Mojito! I will say though, working out in 85 degree weather and high humidity is NO JOKE! But hey, it feels good when finished!
If you guys have any other questions let me know and I’ll definitely be sharing with you the progress as I continue to go along with this throughout the weeks/months! Let’s see if I can get a six pack down! #GOALS
As if you guys haven’t heard about the bomber jacket craze, right? Well, IF for some reason you haven’t today I’m here to pull you in! Bomber Jackets are IT right now and all the celebs like Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenny and Hailey Baldwin are sporting them right now whether it be with your workout attire or out and about during the day. They have somehow managed to bring back this trend and make it just really “cool” to put it simply. I’m obsessed with this trend and I have been wearing my bomber jackets non stop as well. In fact, if you guys followed me on Snap and Instagram yesterday then you know I just got to the Dominican Republic (yayyy!) BUTTT — moral of the story was that my airport attire consisted of black leggings, regular tee, sneakers and a bomber jacket. First of all, they are comfortable, two they are super stylish and three they keep you insanely warm and for me when flying can be unpredictable that is key!
Just wanted to shed light on one of my recent fav trends especially for the fall months! Hope you guys enjoy AND make sure to follow on Instagram to see all my adventures from the DR!
Big thanks to Zappos for sponsoring this post.
Hey guys! Today I’m wearing a new pair of high waisted skinny jeans from Joe’s Jeans that I got from Zappos the other day and I cannot tell you how obsessed I am with these. I think they very well could be my new favorite pair of denim jeans!! I KNOW I am going to be wearing these throughout the Fall months for sure!! I also got these Steve Madden boots at the same time and can we talk about this mirrored metallic blocked heel!? I die for this! Plus, you all know I’m a comfort girl and these babies are insanely comfy!! I could walk for days in them.
Even though I fell in love with both my pieces and there’s no chance I’ll be returning them, the main reason I shop at Zappos regularly is because they have the best customer service and their shipping/return policy is unmatched! They offer fast, free shipping and also a 365 day return policy so for those of you who are like me and quite often don’t meet that pesky “30 day rule” you don’t even have to sweat with them. If you guys haven’t already, try them out and you’ll be totally hooked!
