Back to School Challenge: Ditch the Sweats Act

For every school-aged person out there, I challenge you to not wear sweatpants to school for a whole year! For some, this task will be a breeze, for others it could be the most excruciating time in their lives. Only the strong and brave will make it through this challenge.

I will be doing this challenge myself and posting photos of inspiration on the tough days. Stay fashion strong and make the hallways sweatpant-free! Even if you are not in school anymore, I still challenge you to live a whole school year stopping the sweats at your door!

To start this challenge, I thought I would share my first day of school outfit with you!



A quote of inspiration for those who are still not game on my idea. Maybe Karl can persuade you!

Let’s make Karl Lagerfeld (and Mikella) happy with the Ditch the Sweats Act!


The Story of My New Shoes

I was recently shopping at T.J. Maxx (practically my favorite store in the whole wide world, well that is, aside from Gap Outlet!) when I saw these fringe beauties on a shelf along with their cousins in gray and brown. I have always wanted a pair of Minnetonka’s but i have always gravitated toward the lower priced brands. This changed when I flipped the shoe over only to discover they were only around $30! #that’sadeal

I bet if you check out your local tj’s soon you might be able to find the same pair. I wish you luck finding them, but even more luck in choosing the color you want.
