What I Wore: Stripes & Dots on a Rainy Day

It wouldn't be Spring without a few rainy days. And it certainly wouldn't be Spring without this sleeveless trench I picked up at Ann Taylor last year (last seen here and here). I've worn several variations of this outfit over the last couple of months. Different striped tees, over jeans, or with flats; just add lipstick and go!

H&M Striped Crop Top (similar)  //  Ann Taylor Sleeveless Trench Dress (similar)  //  Banana Republic Opaque Tights  //  J.Crew Chelsea Leopard Print Rain Boots  //  Club Monaco Statement Necklace (old)  //  Kate Spade Saturday Gold Dot Satchel  //  J.Crew Leopard Bangle (similar)  //  Alex & Ani Bangle  // NARS Lipstick in Schiap

Notice my hair is a little lighter these days? Cameron at Salon Capri on Newbury recently refreshed my Balayage and cleaned up my layers. I can't wait for the summer sun to lighten the look even more!

Health Beat: Spring Shape Up

Spring is finally here! The only thing on my mind right now is sunshine, beaches, boats, and beer. In anticipation of the busy summer and swimsuit season I've been working out at least three times a week. At least one of those sessions is with my trainer Zhubin at BSC Back Bay. He knows I love spin and barre so in our sessions we focus a lot on my chest, back, arms, and butt. He somehow tricked me into doing 150 squats and curls during our last session but as much as I complain to him I love the challenge! 

During our last workout I got to test out my new gear from City Sports. They have a house line of apparel that is affordable, cute, and great quality. CS products feature lightweight quick dry fabrics and a slim fit. These crops have a back zip pocket too, a must-have for tucking away my keys or phone during a run! This set pictured above is available at City Sports now.

Speaking of running, I'm back to running! I am so not a winter runner, (this winter especially) so now that the weather is nice and the snow is almost gone I'm lacing up my Fresh Foam's and hitting the pavement. This week I had my best run yet and it was only my second run of the season! Classes at The Handle Bar have really built my endurance and my body is so much stronger thanks to sessions with Zhubin. 

Who knows, maybe there's a marathon in my future? For now, I just love challenging myself to go a little bit further, and a little bit faster.
How have your workouts been going?

PMS Bites!

At my last Good Ones event I had the pleasure of meeting Tania Green, a budding Boston entrepreneur and the genius behind PMS Bites. A million times better than a Birchbox, PMS Bites delivers delicious chocolaty treats during the time of the month you need it most. They're vegan, gluten-free, and even though I'm not the biggest chocolate lover, I'm a huge fan of these delicious bites! 

PMS Bites are available in three flavors like All Kinds of Nuts, Plain Crazy, and Coco-Nutty. Each order contains a box of six bites and you can choose from a sampler pack or 6 pack of your favorite flavor (I'm an All Kinds of Nuts girl, myself!). You can place your order directly on the PMS Bites site and set your delivery preferences there as well. Tell me, what do you crave most when you have PMS?
