LBD For the Win

image2 (1)

Hey! Did anyone else feel like this week went by extra slow? But hooray we have finally made it to Friday! Which means I get to attend my 2 favorite types of happy hours: pilates and then margs. I always try to end the weekdays on a positive note and so squeezing in a pilates class on Fridays makes me feel accomplished! And it doesn’t hurt to burn some calories before I sip on something delicious…right?

I am in love with this little black dress because of how flattering it is! It’s simple enough to be casual but then you can also dress it up if you want! Plus it costs less than $60! This cardigan gave me the little pop of color that I wanted but I ended up taking it off after walking around a bit. I actually scooped this cardigan during the last Tory Burch sale but I linked a similar one at a good price point below. The weather is warming up so fast and I am so excited for summer! My sunglasses are one of my favorite pairs of Jimmy Choos from about 2 years ago. I couldn’t find the exact same ones but linked their cat eye styles below.

I’ll follow my sisters last post and leave some fun facts about myself here. Check out the previous post to learn more about Aylin!

  • My name is Ayla (Pronounced I-La).
  • I am 26 years old.
  • I’m a newlywed! My adorable husband Matt and I will be celebrating our 1 year anniversary this May! Crazy how quickly time passes by.
  • I have two boxers and I am totally a crazy dog mom. We actually created an IG for our dogs because they are just so dang cute! If you want to see what I’m talking about, check out sloppywetkisses!
  • I love eating lemons…like I will just straight up cut one up and eat it as if its an orange! It’s kind of weird but I just love sour stuff.
  • I just graduated with my MBA from UT Dallas this past December! I also have  B.S. in Human Biology from UT Austin.
  • I think I’ve seen almost every episode of Law & Order SVU. I’m totally obsessed and it’s so hard to get me away from the TV once an episode has started..I have to know if the culprit gets caught!
  • I’m a huge soccer fan and my two favorite teams are Galatasaray SK and Chelsea FC. I’ve played soccer my entire life and am hoping to join another outdoor league this fall.
  • I’m a total Harry Potter nerd and am still sad I never received my Hogwarts letter. I recently bought a Harry Potter themed cookbook which I love and am still trying to convince my hubby or sister to fly to New York with me to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on Broadway.
  • I LOVE Taylor Swift and Beyonce and was a little obsessive with the presales on ticketmaster…but it worked! I got tickets for both concerts this fall and will unapologetically snapchat during both shows!

Have a Fabulous Weekend!

Heart Top

image1 (2)-2

Hello Spring!! I am totally loving this weather and just had to wear one of my new favorite tops for spring. I love how delicate and feminine this top is and the fact that it is incredibly soft is just the cherry on top! I’m wearing an XS and it is perfectly flowy without being boxy. All the outfit details will be linked below!

My favorite blogs are those in which you feel a personal connection with the writer and so I’ve decided to share a few fun facts about me:

  • My name is Aylin which is pronounced exactly like Eileen!
  • I just turned 24.
  • I have an MIS degree from UT Austin..  HOOK ‘EM HORNS!
  • I’m a total bookworm and was devastated when the Barnes and Noble near my house closed down a few years ago. True story, that was probably my biggest heartbreak so far. Some of my favorite authors are Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and my all time love, Hemingway. My favorite book is For Whom the Bell Tolls.
  • I am a consultant and am constantly traveling for work. Most weeks, I am in a different city Monday- Friday which means I’ve become an expert packer!
  •  Darcy, floofer pictured above, is my almost 2 year old English Springer Spaniel. He’s super affectionate and is the best running partner around! He is incredibly energetic, so much so that he is still hyper after running 8 miles with me. Have they made a doggy version of the hamster wheel yet?
  • Speaking of running, I have run 2 half marathons and one 15K so far. I’m signed up for another half later this year and hope to be able to run a full marathon one day.
  • I could probably live off of coffee and cookies. The sweet tooth is real y’all.
  • I’m very outdoorsy and would love to go hiking everyday if possible! The bad thing is that I am also very clumsy so sometimes the two don’t really go hand in hand and so I usually have a few bruises.
  • I used to work at Anthropologie in college and the running joke of my family is still that I spent 10 times more than what I made. That discount was just too dang good!

Have a wonderful Thursday!!

Tuesday Workout

Hey dolls, it’s mid-March and that means the Texas sun is starting to heat up! Anyone that knows us would agree that we are die-hard fans of workout clothes, and for good reason! Firstly, is there anything more comfortable than leggings? For real though, they’re the best! We love how comfortable workout tights can be and how they can accentuate certain assets. Secondly, we workout hard but sometimes it can be hard to get motivated. For us,  having cute workout clothes inspires us to get up and moving! Summer is just around the corner and we are working hard to ensure that we will be bikini ready!

Today’s workout started off with a 30 minute walk in the park with Darcy, our cute English Springer Spaniel. This evening we will be getting bendy on the reformer in our Allegro 2 based pilates class. Over the past year we have fallen in love with pilates and highly recommend it! We will be adding a fitness page to our blog soon in which we will share our best tips, advice, and studio recommendations!
