Fit Fab Well By Chanel: Fab Smoothie

My friend Chanel makes the most delicious and healthy smoothies. I’m obsessed with them. If you need a super healthy, quick breakfast or lunch, these smoothies are game changers. They also keep you full forever. Seriously, whenever I have one for breakfast, which is often, I’m not hungry for lunch until 3:00.

Slumber Party Series Part One: It's Pajama Time

Lulu (the little one), Milo (the big one) and I would like to welcome you to Slumber Party- a series all about sleeping in style. This first post is about one of my favorite things, pajamas!

I’m convinced pajamas actually help me sleep better because it’s hard not to relax after slipping on a pair. When I’m more relaxed, it’s easier to drift off. Also, much like the average five year old, if I like my PJs, I look forward putting them on early every night and getting to bed a little sooner. #PajamaGoals

Or perhaps I just want an excuse to hang with my dogs in bed.... Either way, here are some of my favorite PJs for the Fall season. 

Fleur’t Modern Romance Tulle Inset Racerback Tank & Pant Set

Who says pajamas can’t be just as sexy as lingerie? I love this set from Fleur’t. The neckline is really unique for sleepwear, but the stitching underneath provides support. I’m also all about the bold color.

Hanro Eleonora Short Pajama

I’m not sure if these Hanro Pajamas are sweet or sexy. But, I do know like everything else this Swiss intimates brand makes, they’re luxurious and high quality. If you wear Hanro and take a selfie, there is an unwritten rule you have to include #Adulting. 

Forever 21 Swan PJ Set

Forever21 is full of finds that look more expensive than they are. And yes, these are the PJs I'm wearing in my party pic. Made from a cotton and modal blend, they're even softer than Lulu after a bath.

Kate Spade New York Floral-Printed Pajama Set

This Kate Spade sateen fabric pajama set is classically styled with a long-sleeved button down top and pull on pants. The flower print is pretty and fun, but still sophisticated. It reminds me of the Hamptons.

BooHoo Rose Camo Floral Print Cami + Short PJ Set

Say “yay” to BooHoo. If you’re lusting after that Kate Spade flower print, but want something a little more affordable (seriously click on the link, it’s a steal), this short and camo set from Boohoo will satisfy your style and budget needs.

Betsy Johnson Heart Printed Top and Dolman Set

It’s hard to wear anything from Betsey Johnson and not instantly smile. The heart print is super cute without being childish. I also love that the top is long sleeved, but paired with shorts, so you don’t have to worry about being too warm or cold. The right temperature balance is key to getting a good night's sleep. So if you need an excuse to treat yourself, science. 

Never Enough Sleep Pajamas

 

These adorable statement PJs from ASOS combine two things I really love, the truth and crop tops. 

Skin Shadow Plaid Open-Shoulder Sleep Gown

So, this isn’t technically pajamas. But, I can't help but swoon over Skin's gorgeous sleeping gown. Beautiful, white and flowy, it’s the earth-mama alternative to lingerie. 

The Olympics of Activewear: Gold Metal Edition

While I've enjoyed watching the Olympics, I realize I can't make any profound statements about sports. I will never write for Deadspin or ESPN women. While I spent one semester on the basketball team in middle school, I am very much aware I'm not an athlete. That being said, I take group fitness classes four to five days per week. That's at least worthy of a participation  metal, right?

Speaking of competition, I’m finding lately my group fitness classes are becoming way more competitive, at least in terms of what people are wearing. Especially in Los Angeles, even a dark spin class can feel like a sexy fashion show. While no one should feel obligated to get dressed up to workout, I actually find it motivating. I love any excuse to wear something that isn’t just comfortable, but flatters my body and makes me feel good. Seriously, this trick works.

Here are some of my favorite pieces, some of which I currently own and several of which are currently on sale (yay!).  Click the photos or bolds for shopping links.
