How to Spring Clean Your Wardrobe

Okay so I know many of you probably took one look at the title of this post and automatically did a side eye stare at your computer thinking to yourself that spring is almost on its way out, you're a little late with this how to Francy! And you of course are right. However for many of my fellow newly minted college alumni, college students, are just plan busy adults… we have yet to get around to this yearly ritual whether it be due to recently moving or warm weather having commitment issues in our local area. Whatever the case, its never too late to purge your wardrobe and make room for some new yummy pieces.

Tip 1: Start by creating categories (if your super OCD about your wardrobe like I am, feel free to type up these categories and create labels for each pile). The ones I’m using are: 

• “Goodwill”- These are clothes such as old shoes, plan shirts and jeans that either don’t fit, or have not been worn in the last few years and I have no personal attachment to or strong desire to wear in the future if this item comes back into style. (That was a mouth full I know, but skip ahead to Tip 3 to see why) 
• “Trash”- These are items that I don’t feel are fit to be donated however I do not plan on wearing in the future. Examples: Severely ripped up shirts or pants, old underwear (because I feel like that is just weird to donate!), sewing projects gone terribly wrong, etc, etc. 
• “Storage”- These are items that you still wear however are not weather appropriate for the warmer weather approaching. Rather than have them clouding up your “springy” palette, store them away somewhere out of sight.
Tip 2: Next, make sure you have storage containers appropriate for keeping your clothes safe and sound, while they are tucked away. Some examples of storage containers are here, here, and here.


Tip 3: “What goes around ALWAYS comes back around. In my twenty something years on Earth this is one of the things I have found to be true. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gotten ride of something only to wish a few years or even seasons later that I still had it! If its something you love and still fit, hold on to it, even if it is out of style right now (trust me on this :-) ) 

Comment below and let me know if you spring clean your wardrobe every year and any additional tips I might have missed!!!

In my Yoga Zone


Ever since I first heard of yoga back in 5th grade, I've been in love. A guest teacher came to our school to demonstrate a few simple positions and I was enthralled (please hold all questions pertaining to my "nerdiness" in elementary school or the super contempo-casual suburbia I must have grown up in) .


I loved the fluidity of the movements and the ease in which the teacher transitioned from one into the next. So naturally, being a true nerd ... I went to the library (thank God for Google) and checked out as many books on yoga as I could find. After having a few mishaps while trying to self-teach myself ( you do not want to make mistakes while doing yoga by yourself... imagine having your ankles stuck behind your head... scary stuff!)  Luckily, to my surprise,
one day I was watching TV and I came across a TV show called Yogazone (cue the falling in love montage). And naturally, since my sisters did not have the soul of a middle age lady, everyday we would have a fight to the death for the remote. I wasn't as zen then as I am now. :)


Recently I've had more time on my hands as college started to come to an end. I started attending yoga classes at my school the past few months and I can't tell you how relaxed and rejuvenated I feel afterward.This was my first time actually practicing with other people in a class setting, and it was a wonderful experience. I plan on treating myself to enrolling in yoga classes after I move to New York to continue getting my weekly detox. So in the spirit of Spring and being healthy, I wanted to write this post and share some of my favorite yoga positions. And of course, it wouldn't be me if I didn't also leave you with a yoga workout style pick ;)

Current Crush

 To know me means to know of my obsession fondness for all things leopard print. Surprisingly, I typically don't wear much of this pattern...except for when it comes to swimsuits and "knickers". Since the later of the two would be a little TMI, I'm just going to show the current swimsuit I'm crushing on. 

Comment below and let me know if you've gone swimsuit shopping for the summer season yet and what type of swimsuits you like to wear.

In the buff

As the weather starts to warm up, must of us start to have the undeniable urge to wear as little clothing as possible. Since pubic nudity is typically frowned upon (for good reason) not to mention the whole against the law's best to keep your pants on (literally) and just opt for light and flowy fabrics.
