Midwest Look One incorporates athleisure with a hefty side of outdoor and cozy :)
Because very girl needs a good hoodie she loves!
You cannot beat $35.90 for a good quality pair of leggings.
UGG Classic Femme Toggle Wedge $119.90
B.P. Denim Jacket $40.90 — awesome price!
Perfect for a hotel when traveling or glamping in an airstream.
Cozy socks are mandatory in the MidWest and these feel like fluff pillows on your feet!
This color is a nice alternative to the typical black. Kinda gives me mermaid vibes. ;)

***MUSICAL INTERMISSION*** Midwest Playlist:“It’s Pop Not Soda” Artists include: Madonna, Lizzo, Common and Talking Heads

Midwest Look 2 “Chi Town” because it wouldn’t be the midwest unless Chicago was mentioned. A little edgier, not as heavy on the cozy more emphasis on the sexy.

Da Bears, The Bulls issa vibe.
Available in plus sizes!
Comfy and HOTT. Super versatile and on-trend.
Pay $26.90 to look like a million bucks!
LOVE the perf details and the Rose Gold pops of color on the zipper!
$119.90 is the lowest you will probably find! They are normally $!80!
$83.90 yes, please!
Studio Crop Lite Leggings $35.90. One of the best picks on my style guide.
You know you want this! Pair with high waisted jeans, pencil skirt or leggings as this is a crop top with slouchy sleeves.
If I liked what shorts looked like on me, I would have these in every color.
One of my FAVES! $29.90 is an outstanding price for Beyond Yoga!
With a regular bra, your skin will show = sexy or wear with a printed or strappy sports bra to give this piece some added pizzaz!
Sleek, minimalist, and proven style (Pegasus). They look great for working out or getting wine at the grocery store!
Midwest with a side of pineapples and palm trees:)
$29.90 the Price Is Right!
Pull up legs in the spring and leave down and wear your comfy UGGS for winter.
P448 is an Italian footwear brand that launched in 2014.
Living in a cold climate, it’s nice to bring sunsets and palm trees into your home.
You may know that pineapples are the symbol of hospitality but did you know it has evolved to be a symbol helping women cope with infertility and/or pregnancy loss. *Source: Yahoo News
I also love the “ombre” tint, super sexy. :)
Purchasing Patagonia is also a win for the environment!
$35.90 is an awesome price for these Zella tights!
These are super lightweight and comfortable!
A cashmere scarf is a mandatory item for women who live in colder climates and even those that don’t that may be subjected to AC Kings.
Holds 17 ounces or approximately 3 glasses of wine. You’re welcome :)
Thumbholes are my everything.
You can’t find any good tennis shoe for under $50! But here we are! :)


East coast has a vastly different vibe from the Midwest however there are some key staples that span all the regions. Let’s explore the land of Biggie, the Boogie Down, and Boston. (Had to have 3 B’s:)

Edgy with a minimalist touch.
Thinner material still a hoodie!
Champion is the epitome of east coast fashion.
Classic old school vibe with east coast flava. Under $50 treat yo self!
Love this even though I messed up and it’s not on the anniversary sale. $29
A nice alternative to black!
I don’t need these because I live in LA, bought em anyway cuz I love them!
I hang dry mine to ensure the quality doesn’t get compromised however Nordstrom says you can tumble dry.
Be the trendsetter in athleisure with these comfy, cute knit palazzo pants!
Something different and on-trend with this funky animal print.
A denim jacket is a must-have layering piece for any athleisure look!
Navy is always the new BLACK
Relaxed, cozy athleisure staple — hoodie
Also offered in that beautiful teal color!
Why not try a scoop neck if you are a v-neck girl?!
This would look hot with dark denim and hi-tops!
These kicks are hott with two t’s.
Looks good with leggings, denim or joggers
For a dressier athleisure look, use accessories as a way to jazz it up!

Sexy, sporty chic Olivia Pope style.
Stealth and sleek. Less than $100.
Core staple. These aren’t sweats they are athleisurepants ;)
Unlike a lot of kits ALL of these colors and products you will actually use!

Your new Zoom top for fall!
PAIGE jeans are my go-to higher quality jeans. Worth the money; they last years and years!
Stay warm and look fierce!
