Easter Picks

Spring brings one of my favorite holidays- Easter! I have wonderful childhood memories of warmer weather, egg hunts, and yummy after church brunch. I want to always keep those traditions going with my family which of course always included a new "springy" dress to wear on Easter Sunday.

I found this fun + floral dress which has so many gorgeous colors!  The midi length is very church appropriate with a ruffle detail.  I paired it with some on-trend accessories to modernize it.
Floral Midi Dress + Tassel Earrings + Crochet Clutch + Ankle Strap Sandals

Here is another floral dress with a floaty sleeve detail that would be perfect as well.  I love the handkerchief detail and the colors.  I've been obsessed with florals lately!
Flutter Sleeve High/Low Dress
I love a good cold shoulder dress and this blush one has Easter written all over it.  I love the ruffle detail as well and it come in navy too!  This dress just got 50% marked off making it a steal at under $75
Cold Shoulder Shift Dress in Blush

I think a jumpsuit is a fun way to modernize your Easter look. By choosing a pattern or color in a pastel it still gives you a traditional look just with an on-trend vibe. This gingham print is too adorable and under $100!
Gingham High Neck Jumpsuit

How cute this lace crop jumpsuit in this beautiful light pink color?!! This is under $100 as well.

Every woman needs a neutral heel to pair with her Easter dress.  I love the silhouette of an ankle strap heel and they make your legs look longer.  The heels on this pair aren't too high + they simply go with everything!

If you are looking for a more modern shoe- I love this clear blush pointed toe pump!  It would go with everything as well and I might need to scoop it up in black as well.

Crystal's Birthday

Happy April friends!  I don't know about ya'll, but I am so ready for Spring and some warm weather.  Amanda and I also love April because it is our birthday month #teamaries.  Luckily, turning 37 is going to be off to a good start for me.  My birthday is on the 14th, which means Masters Sunday, and Game of Thrones Season Premiere!!  Now, let's get to my birthday wish list.

Every year, I feel it is essential to buy new swimsuit cover-ups, even though I have plenty.  I am so loving Express this season and all of their clothes, especially their swim line.  Loving this Chiffon Cover Up so much to pair with some jean shorts.

New tennis shoes are always on my list year round.  I have been wanting to pull the trigger on these Nike Air Zoom Pegasus for a while now.  I love these shoes for all my cross training classes and running on the treadmill.

I have loved my new Amazon Workout Top so much that I am wanting it in a few more colors.  It is super comfy + light weight + great for all workouts.  I got a Medium to give me a little more length.

Amanda has had me obsessing over these Steve Madden Slides for a long time now.  I will pretty much be living in these all summer.  They go with basically everything!!

You may know by now that I am very passionate about my coffee every morning.  Needing this Temperature Control Ceramic Mug to keep my cup of joe warm.

I am in some major need of some Wireless Ear buds for my at home workouts and treadmill work.  I tried some and they seem to stay in just fine.

I also hope to be drinking some Rose' and getting my fave birthday cake from Baskin Robbins.  The ice cream cake is the best!

Spring is a great time to jump into a new workout routine to get yourself motivated.  You may wonder how I  take all of these great fitness classes around town.  Do I have 20 different class packs everywhere?  Nope, I am a ClassPass member.  ClassPass has been the best thing for me since I love trying new things, and #mixingitup.

ClassPass has a few monthly plans to choose from:

First off your can try class pass for 2 weeks for free, so no use in not giving it a shot!
$39 per month 28 credits
$59 per month 33 credits
$199 per month 72 credits

Each class has a different number of credits required for class depending on the gym, and the class time.  Most classes are around 5-10 credits per class.

You can visit the same gym up to three times per month. ClassPass has an app that lists the 100's of studios who participate, class times, and you can register for your class on the app. There are so many class times during the day, its almost impossible not to find something that works for you!

I have discovered so many great studios, and new workouts that I never would have found if I didn't have ClassPass.

Here are a few of my go to's:

Barry's Boot Camp
Shed Group Fitness (Franklin, Gulch, and Belle Meade)
Sculpt House
Cycle Bar
Studio Novo (Franklin only)
Hot Yoga Plus (Frankin and Nashville)
Barre 3 (All locations)
Pure Barre (All locations)

Try ClassPass!

Use this link for $40 off any Class Pass plan

I do have a couple of additional class packs at some studios because I do go more than 3 times per  month. But with ClassPass, I am able to extend my packages and don't have to repurchase classes too often.  You always have the option to buy a few extra credits every month to get your through and you can roll up to 10 credits over per month.

Remember to always pack a gym bag just in case you can make a class!

Another perk is on the Class Pass app there are 100's of workout videos you can do at home if you don't have time to make it to the gym.

Disclaimer:  Sometimes the really popular classes on the schedule will not be available on ClassPass.  I understand the studio wants to save spots for people who are actually members of the studio.  This is really the only drawback there is for me with ClassPass.  Which is another reason why I  have a few packages at my favorite studios.

Check out ClassPass and try some new classes!
