Get Your Om On

Instead of my regularly scheduled Wednesday Wish List, I wanted to share with you my favorite items to get my om on. Like I said yesterday, one of my new year’s resolutions is to stay consistant with going to my yoga classes 3 days a week (if you are in DC I attend this studio). I was sort of consistant with this in 2011, but in 2012 this will be my sacred me time.

Now that it is getting chillier out there, looking cute while walking over to my class has been tough but I refuse to let excuses get in the way.

Below are some of my must haves to get my om on…

PROLite Yoga Mat {Manduka}

Anything Manduka makes, I will own. I highly recommend their PROLite mats if you live in a city and walk to your classes. These babies are light but still have enough cushion and traction to help you practice at your best. I personally got their Lighten Up Package (It was created for the city yogi in mind and buying their items in bulk saves you lots of moola!), but if you are just looking for a new mat – this beauty is it.

Canvas Classic {TOMS}

To keep your toes warm on the walk, and a great way to keep your inner yogi and philanthropist alive, TOMS are the best shoe. Trust me, you will walk into your studio and see every yogi in them. Perhaps buy blank ones (like above) and DIY them a bit to a add a personal touch.

Groove Pant {Lululemon}

Like every yogi, I have an unhealthy love for Lululemon. Now that the days of wearing shorts to class are far far away, I have been eyeing the ever-popular Groove Pant with a bold pink band.

Pink Lux Earbuds {iFrogz c/o AT&T}

To get me into the yogi zone on my walk to class – these extremely light weight and, dare I say, fashionable earbuds keep me going. You know I had to get them in pink and they match all of my pink yoga gear perfectly. Yes. I care if my earbuds match. Don’t judge.

Anorak w Faux Fur Trim {DKNY}

…and for the really cold DC nights, I use a heavier anorak to keep me warm since my yoga gear is very thin. This furry DKNY piece is one of my favs. Toasty.

What are your favorite yoga/workout must haves for the winter? I would love any suggestions!

Namaste,
Lacey

Goodbye 2011

2011 was a growing, life-changing year for A Lacey Perspective. It was the year of my first outfit post, the first CapFABB Meetup, my first Washingtonian feature, co-hosting an event with Lucky Magazine and overall really evolving my style. This blog has been a roller-coaster ride for me. I never would have thought at the beginning of this wonderful year I would have built ALP to being a style blog (it started as a fashion blog), made amazing blogger friends that I will have for life, had press recognition and fell so hard for all things fashion by the end of the year. What started as a place to let my creative juices flow in 2010 turned into something I can’t live without in 2011.

As I put together some of my favorite looks from 2011 I could not believe how much my style has evolved, how much more comfortable I am getting in front of a camera and how lucky I am to have an amazing photographer/boyfriend/best friend like J behind me all the way. Wow. I am a lucky girl. Hope you enjoy this glance back into 2011 (pics are in chronological order)…

Keeping it simple on these chillier weekends DC is beginning to have. I think winter has finally decide to show itself, sadly. To stay chic but comfortable shades of brown and black with a pop of color by your face is all that is needed.

Pink/Red

Blouse {c/o LOFT} | Skirt {Meeps Vintage} | Pumps {Zara} similar | Faux Chinchilla Clutch {c/o Ann Taylor}Sunnies {House of Harlow 1960} | Monogram Necklace {Max & Chloe} | Chain/Gem Necklace {Bauble Bar}Watch {Michael Kors} | Bracelet {Yurman} | Cuff {F21} similar | Ring {H&M} similar | Ring {LouLou Boutqiue} | Lipstick {L’Oreal – British Red}

This is by far my favorite color combo. As a blonde I learned quickly that any shade of red and pink is my friend.

Also, I am newly obsessed with my Faux Chinchilla Clutch gifted to me by Ann Taylor. It is the perfect size, full of pockets and I love its fuzzy feel. But enough about my furry clutch… I hope everyone had a fabulous holiday, whichever holiday you may celebrate.

For those of you who are wondering – yes, this skirt is from my bag of $20 Meeps vintage. ;)

Holiday Party + Giveaway

Dress { c/o Burlington Coat Factory} | Coat, Fur Stole & Clutch {H&M} |  Pumps {c/o Burlington Coat Factory} | Sunnies {House of Harlow 1960} | Monogram Necklace {Max & Chloe} | Watch {Michael Kors} | Bracelet {Yurman} | Bangles {c/o Burlington Coat Factory} | Ring {H&M} similar |Lipstick {L’Oreal – British Red}

Burlington Coat Factory reached out to me and challenged me to create a holiday party look for under $100. If you have been following me for awhile now – you know I LOVE a good styling challenge.

When I first walked into BCF I saw this Calvin Klein dress and knew I was going to go for an all black look (so rare for me). Then as I walked through the never ending shoe isle I saw these amazing Steve Madden black sparkly pumps. Now to get to what it cost me…

Dress $39.99 + Pumps $29.99 + Bangles $4.99 = $74.97

Not bad, right?! Then to take the challenge to the next level (always one for extra credit) I wore the look to a holiday party I was booked to attend.

Jealous of my amazing finds!? Don’t you worry… you can win a $100 gift certificate to Burlington Coat Factory too! All you need to do is:

Like Burlington on Facebook

Like ALP on Facebook

Follow Burlington on Twitter

Comment below with your email address and what you will wear to your holiday parties

*I will announce the winner on January 3rd.*

Good luck, loves, & Happy Holidays!
