Philosophy blouse: c/o Marshalls Pencil skirt: c/o Marshalls BCBGeneration heels: DSW Cork clutch: Just Fab Location: NoDa (Charlotte) Photography: Lindsay Wynne Photography   I have had the best shopping luck lately!  Take this look for instance.  I found this blouse and skirt at Marshalls a couple of weeks ago.  I tried this blouse on with jeans and with this skirt, and while it looks great with both, with this skirt you get the perfect outfit.  Why is it perfect, you ask?  When I was thinking of what to write about this look, I thought this could be a great date night look.  Then I thought office to happy hour look.

Dress: c/o Marshalls Blazer: The Limited Heels: Payless Handbag: c/o Marshalls Belt: The Limited Location: Plaza Midwood (Charlotte) Photography: Maya Elious   When I was little my Mom would always buy me and my sister new dresses for Easter.  As an adult, I cannot tell you the last time I bought myself a new Easter dress, if ever.  This year I will spend Easter weekend in Atlanta visiting friends, so I want to wear a dress that's easy for packing, that I can dress up for church, and that I can dress down for the rest of the day (and that will be comfortable for my drive back to Charlotte).

  Back at the end of 2014 I learned about a company called ClassPass.  What's ClassPass you ask?  Only one of the best concepts to ever hit the workout scene.  ClassPass is a monthly membership to the best boutique fitness classes in your city!  For $79-99 per month depending on your city ($79 per month for Charlotte), you get unlimited classes to studios in the ClassPass network, but you can only visit a particular studio up to 3 times in a monthly cycle.  That means you can mix it up and not get in a rut of doing the same workout day after day and week after week.  There are tons Read More ...
