Marathon Training + Why I Love Running

Today’s post is going to be a little different than my usual fashion post and focusing on another one of my loves: running. (At this time, if you feel the exact opposite that I do of running, feel free to click onto another page or site, I’ll understand!). This will be a bit of a personal post, but I’d like to think it’s a way to get to know me and encourage you to find your workout passion. If you follow me on Instagram (@madeinmissouri), you may have seen on my story on Tuesday that I was beginning to train for a marathon! Eeeep! So today I wanted to talk about my training plan and why exactly I think it will be fun to run 26.2 miles in a few months. Peace, Love, & Running It’s hard for me to describe all of the reasons I love to run. Ew, I know I sound like one of those really annoying exercise people, sorry. Quite frankly, running is the only type of working out that I don’t strongly dislike and can tolerate doing several times a week. Even when I was younger and in high school, that’s really the only type […]

Blush & Bell Sleeve

A top that’s blush with bell sleeves?! What more could a girl ask for in a spring blouse?! While I am crazy excited for today’s post, I’m not so excited that it’s being written while I’m packing to head back to CA. I have had such a GREAT time at home this past week and especially this weekend with Zach, I’m not quite ready for the fun to end! So while I suck it up and move on with packing (ugh, please tell me you feel my pain!), I’ll go ahead and introduce a top I’ve been hiding in my closet for far too long! This blush bell sleeve top has been at the top of everyone’s list since last summer. It is full of darling details like the lace crochet top, an incredibly flattering and flirty cut, and topped off with billowing bell sleeves. It comes in blush, white, and red, and is a top you’ll definitely be wanting in your closet and on repeat in the upcoming months! I’ve paired it here with a pair of white skinnies, but come summertime I’ll be shimmying into some cutoffs and sandals! I absolutely love this top because with all the […]

SUNNIES & STRIPES

Can I get a hip, hip, hooray for springtime?! Hip, hip, hooray! With springtime comes my two favorite seasons back to back: spring and summer! Whoop whoop! Break out the bright fun colors, lightweight twirl-proof dresses, and your favorite pair of shades. Today’s post I’m talking about some springtime staples that are always on rotation in my closet. Stock up for maximum fun and minimum effort! I couldn’t resist picking up this striped v-neck tee. It’s smooth like buttah and has a great fit! It’s not boxy and has a longer rounded hem to flatter any body type. I also love the fun little detail of the v-neck, it adds such a simple touch on your classic soft v-neck tee! And for a price point that’s under $30, you can scoop this baby up in all 5 (yes, five!) colors! For an extra casual look, I’ve paired the tee with my favorite white skinnies and white Adidas sneakers. With warmer temps coming, I’ll swap the skinnies for some shorts and opt for some casual sandals instead! And we all know that no spring or summer look is complete without a fun pair of sunnies! I picked up these metallic Ray-Ban shades […]

darling off the shoulder sweater

Happy happy Monday friends! I’m hopping on a plane, homeward bound! It’s the first time I’ve been home since Christmas so I’m one happy girl! Today’s post is one that I am SO excited to share because I just can’t get enough of this look. I received this darling off the shoulder sweater for my birthday, and have been smitten from the minute I opened it! Not only does it have everyone’s favorite trend of the season, #ots, but it’s that perfect oversized fit without being too baggy. The length of the sweater is actually on the shorter side, making it perfect to pair with your favorite skinnies like these white Hudsons. The woven design adds such a fun touch that makes it so easy to style! In addition to this beautiful blush (are you really surprised that I chose this color?!), it comes in two other colors! I have been LIVING in this sweater, you guys, it’s that comfortable. It’s crazy soft and sits just right off the shoulders for a slouchy effortless look. With this crisp spring mornings we’ve been having, it’s definitely going to be my go-to! || TOP: off the shoulder sweater || BOTOMS: white skinnies || SHOES: Marc Fisher espadrilles || EARRINGS: pearl […]
