Bundled Up

Sponsored by Zappos Luxury Currently typing this blog post will semi-frostbitten fingers as the weather these last few weeks has been downright frigid. I never thought I’d be one to say that if it’s this cold, I’d at least like to see snow. But here I am saying just that. My one saving grace in these near-subzero temps though? The latest gear from North Face. They launched Cryos this fall, and it’s their newest line of premium outerwear inspired by the mountains. Meaning that it’s absolutely perfect for these cold weather days! Better yet, the jacket that I picked up from Zappos Luxury is actually a 3-in-1 jacket. So they are helping me stay covered no matter what the weather may throw at us.

Let’s Get Technicole

Sponsored by Zappos Well, never thought I would say this. But I’m so glad to see some 30 degree days. It’s been down right frigid and in the single digits around here. Which means the temps this week make it seem warm, as odd as they may seem. Even got the chance to head out for a quick walk with a few friends and their super cute pups, Luna and Ruby. Which was the perfect time to break in my newest Kenneth Cole New York kicks from Zappos. Yeah, yeah, I know, I know, another pair of black and white sneakers. BUT these guys are special. Why? Cause they’re part of Kenneth Cole’s newest line: techni-cole. This means they’re equipped with their 37.5 technology, which essentially is a thermostat for your foot. Meaning that even after walking 3 miles yesterday my feet were as cool (and dry) as they were before I started. Don’t believe me? Then now’s the perfect time to try it them out for yourself. Head to Zappos to start shopping. I’ve keeping an eye on a few other pairs. So don’t be surprised if you see another pair on here before too long. Cause they are that…

Baltimore Bound

Sponsored by Zappos Well, after a whirlwind trip to Baltimore, Maryland and Alexandria, Virginia I’m settling back into life in Louisville. This year was full of travel, more than ever before, and I can’t wait to see what next year has in store! But I’m incredibly thankful to be making myself cozy at home for the rest of the year. Travel is definitely a highlight of this job. Coming home is always a highlight as well though. Especially now that I have a place all to myself that I absolutely love. My trip recap and city guides will be coming soon for both those cities (stay tuned), but in the meantime I’m sharing the outfit I wore on my last day in Baltimore. It was cold and had just started to snow when we made our way to brunch, but lucky for me I had packed my new black UGG boots that I snagged at Zappos before the trip. They were literally THE perfect boots for this trip. Leather upper meant my feet stayed dry and fur lined meant those also stayed warm. I tend to be very hot natured so I’ll admit to being a tad worried about getting…

Champion Life

Well, just when I thought winter weather was here to stay – Mother Nature went and proved me wrong. You know what they say about Kentucky weather. No? Well, it’s about as fickle as me when it comes to deciding where to grab dinner. Meaning it changes it mind at least twice a day. But I’ll enjoy it while I can. Today was 60 and sunny meaning it was perfect hoodie weather. Took the occasion to break in this new hoodie from Champion. It was the perfect layer to begin the day with under a light jacket, and then kept me looking my best for the rest of my day. Like running from a morning shoot (yes, I actually got up early) to the ground breaking ceremony for TWO new hotels coming to Louisville. People often ask why I’m still in Louisville, and days like today remind me why I am. It’s incredibly exciting to see the progress our city has made over the years and continues to make every day. Today we broke ground for easily one of the biggest hotel projects our city has seen. Marriott International is bringing both Hotel Distil (part of their Autograph Collection) and a…

Lil Kentucky

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Nautica, but as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. Well, here in Kentucky we skipped straight through to winter bypassing my favorite season – fall. To say I find it a bummer would be an understatement, BUT after all, a layer is a layer. So, I’m not complaining too much. Also, I’d much rather have to put on an extra layer or two than be swimming in my sweat as soon as I walk out the door. Who’s with me? To gear up for the cooler temps ahead I’ve started to pull out the coats from the back of the closet and add in additional layering pieces like this puffer vest from Nautica. Best part about this puffer vest? It’s from their latest collection that premiered at NYFWM, AND it’s part of their collaboration with Lil Yachty! This entire collection is inspired by his favorite vintage Nautica styles, and it’s giving me all the 90s vibes – something that I couldn’t be happier about. Paired with a good pair of black skinnies, white hi-tops, and a denim shirt, and you’ve got the perfect outfit IMO. What’s not to love? Not much. Have an affinity…
