Hey guys! Happy Friday! Today's post is something I am so excited to share with you, because I have received questions regarding what today's post entails. As you may know, fitness and staying active is a big part of my lifestyle and something I try to include in my daily routine at all times. However, having said that, sometimes life gets crazy busy and my schedule can get hectic so I don't always have time to get to the gym, or if I do go the gym, I don't always have the time there to get done everything I would like to. So, at times, my house becomes my place to workout. Our living room, our hallway, my basement, and even sometimes our garage become the gym away from the gym haha! This particular day I wanted to get in an extra arm-focused workout, and the hallway became the perfect spot. For this at-home workout, I sported the Natori Yogi Sports Bra that can be found at Macy's and it provided the perfect support and coverage that I needed to get my sweat on at home. I also like that the Yogi Bra is made from breathable fabric to keep my cool and dry throughout my workout. Natori at Macy's has a variety of sleepwear, lounge wear, lingerie pieces and bras to choose from, and this sports bra was perfect for my lifestyle and what I do each and everyday. I thought it was great that even though the focus of Natori is definitely sleep and lounge wear, they created a fantastic sports bra that looks good and performs well. As I mentioned above, sometimes our schedule is ever-changing and we need to adjust our daily activities based on what we have that particular day, so it's nice to be able to be workout at home now and again. Brod and I have learned the importance of being flexible and willing to adjust based on our priorities and tasks that need to be taken care of any given day. Whether your schedule each day calls for working out at the gym or at home, this Yogi Bra from Natori is a win/win! Check it out and the other Natori brand pieces at Macy's!

Hey lovelies! It's Thursday and it's a new day and I hope this finds you happy and well! Today I am thrilled to be sharing a couple  of my favorite new pieces with you! Just take a moment and check out this denim jumpsuit from my girl Danielle at WeWoreWhat and this fab coat from Tommy Hilfiger! I absolutely love this combo and is one I will be wearing over and over again. The jumpsuit fits like a glove and hugs in all the right places, and I love that there is a retro vibe to it that gives it some edge. I also love that you can pair it with a variety of shoes and jackets and it will look great! Danielle killed it with her jumpsuits and if you haven't had a chance, go check them out asap!! The coat from Tommy X Gigi is spot on in design, color, and fit as well and was the perfect finish to this entire look. I hope you guys like this look as much as I do, and if a jumpsuit is a piece that takes you out of your comfort zone then I say try it! Get out of that comfort zone and take a risk, I know I always end up loving the looks that help me step outside my normal go-to's and explore new pieces. I have linked the entire look below to help you know where to find it! Thanks so much for all of your love and support! I love you all and I hope you have such a fantastic day!

Hey gang! Happy Wednesday or hump day or halfway there day, whatever you call it haha! I hope this post finds you well! I am excited to share today's post with you because it features a couple of items from my very own shop. Each Wednesday at Caralorenshop we do what we call a "wish list wednesday" and feature certain pieces, either at a discount, or in this case, new arrivals to the shop! I love winter pieces and this new turtleneck and cardigan that are both dropping today and are the just the right amount of cozy yet stylish at the same time, and can be worn all winter (and fall if you wanted) long. I love that they are both classic colors and can be worn with pretty much anything. I find more often than not, my go-to pieces are those that are simple and yet can be styled in a variety of ways. What are your favorite go-to pieces? And are you a cardigan girl or a turtleneck girl? Or are you like me and are both haha?! Any how, if you haven't had a chance to check out the Caralorenshop yet, go take a look and I think you will find something you like! Running our brand and shop is a lot of work and at times super stressful, but it is also such an amazing thing to see us bring pieces that I absolutely love to people around the world and I love seeing how you style them and make them your own! That is what the Cara Loren brand is all about, inspiring others to pursue both comfort and fashion! Have a fabulous day and thank you all for following! I love you all and am so grateful for your support!

From Outdoor to Indoor

Hey guys! I hope this finds you happy and well! I am so excited to be sharing today's post with you! I have partnered with Outdoor Voices to talk about staying active and keeping it fun while doing so! So, let's talk a little bit about this awesome brand Outdoor Voices. They make technical apparel for both men and women that is geared towards everyday recreation. It's less about competition and performance, and more about championing the morning jog, a dog walk, or a walk with friends. I love the different pieces that they have and the way they have designed them to be interchangeable so that they go well together. At Outdoor Voices they are all about Doing Things--- moving and being active because it's fun and feels good and finding recreation in everyday life.

Everything they make is designed to sweat in (though the textured fabrics hide that) so it works across whatever activity you choose for the day, whether it be yoga, running, or shooting hoops. As you can see below, my recreation and fitness journey on this particular day was focused on stretching, yoga, and playing with my dudes! I seriously love these guys so much and no matter what I am doing that day, they seem to make it even better! I love yoga and sweating and stretching and do my best to mix it into my routine each week. There is something about working my core and focusing on my flexibility that helps me feel energized and more healthy!

As I mentioned above, I think Outdoor Voices has really nailed it with their emphasis on doing something active each day, even if it is something little, doing it and participating is what it's all about. I love their apparel and encourage you all to check it out. They have everything from sports bras to leggings and jackets, and they all come in a variety of colors and textures. Check them out! Thank you all for following! I love you all!
