Currently Craving: Workout Gear

nike



I'm the kind of girl who loves to work out but also wear workout gear when I'm not exactly going anywhere near gym. Nike clothes are so comfortable and always my go to for leisure or gym time. I like to keep a neutral base with pops of color (usually pink) so these new items available from Nike's line have definitely caught my eye. I am a huge fan of Nike's Roshe Run line, not just for style but for comfort. They are light enough to wear all day and offer great arch support. These Roshe's in particular also have a great graphic print that makes these stand out more than any other ones i've seen. Also their vintage line is great throw back if you're looking for something more old school and less modern. If only business casual meant clothes like these, I would wear these styles all week long.

Have a great hump day!

Rocksbox



Happy Tuesday!

I'm sharing a jewelry service that I've recently fallen in love with, Rocksbox. It is a full service jewelry company with over 30 retailers that you can borrow and swap or buy.  If you become a Shine Insider, like me, you can receive three hand picked pieces of designer jewelry on loan anytime you want for however long you want. Then once you return your pieces (if you decide not to buy any), you immediately get another three in the mail; it's like Christmas all year round ;) They carry one of my favorite designers, House of Harlow (pictured above) to Gorjana and each piece is different from the next. Your stylist will also even match pieces together for you to wear as a set at a $200 value for just $19 a month. As a Shine Insider, you will take an in-depth style questionnaire for your stylist to gain better insight to your taste. Then, with every shipment of your three pieces, there will be a personalized note and survey for feedback on how you like what you received (shown below). Every experience will be altered to your wish list. It's really completely catered to you and you can end your service at anytime.    

Even better, we have a special code for you to get your first month free as Shine Insider! Just use the code: pleasantlypetitexoxo 

Once you sign up, make sure to follow their Instagram account @rocksbox regularly to find the best styles other Shine Insider's are styling and snag them for your own by tagging #wishlist.

The Original Pedi-Sox


Happy monday all! Today's is dedicated to pedicures. I'm always cold, especially in the winter, so going to get a pedicure these days seems like such a daunting task. But that all changed thanks to Pedi-Sox!! These adorable and comfortable socks keep you looking good and feeling warm during your pedicure. They seriously have the cutest options like my tie dye and cheetah print, mary-janes, polka dots or just regular white with a colored stripe. You put these babes on your feet right before they start to polish your toes. When my mom and I went for these pedicures other women in the salon were utterly jealous of our sox and I got a million and two questions and compliments on them (thanks pedi-sox). And, the socks keep the moisture in from your pedicure to keep your skin nice and soft. They even have an amazing product called SofSpa that you can put on your heels and put your pedi-sox over even when you aren't getting a pedicure in order get rid of the dreaded dry cracked heels. Be sure to check them out and follow them on Facebook, twitter, and pinterest! Make it a great week!

Pleasantly Pinning: Spring Wardrobe Musts

On this fabulous and fashionable friday I've decided to share some of my must-haves that i'll be adding to my wardrobe this spring! I went on a pinning spree yesterday because of the frigid weather, we're finally supposed to hit positive double digits today (fingers crossed). If you don't already follow us on Pinterest, you're doing it wrong ;) so you can fix it by following us at www.pinterest.com/pleasantlyp (you'll be happy you did). Here's what I think you'll need this spring (and why):

The White Skinny Jean


I love a good pair of white jeans, but especially in warm weather when you can pair it with bright colors! The trend now is for slits at the knees and/or frayed bottoms




The Playsuit


I would live in playsuits if I could. You're entire outfit is basically picked out for you with just one piece of clothing, its amaze-balls. I plan on stocking up on plenty!




Reflective Sunnies


If you've been following us you know that I am addicted to reflective sunnies (I have 3 pairs). They're gorgeous and make a statement of their own.




Boho Babe Bling


A little sparkle never hurt anybody, and your inner boho babe needs these type of statement pieces in your life. I love all things silver so I've picked some of my cravings in silver.






Fringe Bags


I mean, hello gorgeous I need you in my life! Whether it's a clutch, tote or cross body you need one!




What are some things on your spring must have list?

Stepping into Spring


spring sandals




With today being the coldest day of the year so far in Chicago, (-20 with the windchill....) I figured it'd be best to indulge in my day dreams of new spring shoes. I love every style featured here and they can be found almost anywhere. From wedges, to flats to summer booties, my feet and myself are ready to see the sun again. Join me in the indulgence or let us know some of your favorite brands and styles in the comments! We can never get enough shoes.

That being said, we hope everyone has their warmest boots on and is staying warm today!

Wool + Army Green Sateen









Jeans are my favorite article of clothing; I could live in them. However, sometimes it's nice to switch it up and opt for a different material and color pant for a casual outfit. These J.crew Sateen tooth pick jeans (now on Sale!) are perfect when paired with a sweater and some heels. The color compliments almost any neutral and I love how it looks against gold accessories and nude shoes.
