Simple

Simple is always it! When you don't feel like getting all dolled up grab your favorite shorts. I've been reaching deep into my closet lately and found these F21 fab finds. Styling them with a simple off white too and oxfords were perfect for a Saturday strolling the city with friends.

Every time I wear my 'Love Cortnie' I get tons of compliments. This clutch has tons of room and I can carry all of my necessities. When wearing it I always keep my outfit simple.

Fit Britt: Jump Your Way to Sexy

It's Workout Wednesday and I'm excited for week two of Fit Britt's workout/healthy lifestyle post. Who's ready to "jump your way to sexy?" I'll be giving this a shot this weekend and capturing it all to share next week, stay tuned.

Call it old fashioned, but jumping rope is always my go-to exercise.

I’m not talking about the skips and hops we all did in middle school. Try 

jumping for more than three minutes and you’ll see how much of a workout 

it can be! 

10 minutes of jumping rope can be just as effective as jogging for 30 

minutes.

• Low impact

• Inexpensive

• Efficient Cardio

• Improves Coordination

• Muscle toning for your entire body, especially your lower body

• Strengthens bones

• Burns fat

• You can do it anywhere

So take a break from the treadmill, skip the same ol’ class at the gym, and 

grab a jump rope for some effective cardio.

You can incorporate the jump rope with the workout below. Do one round for a warm 

up or push yourself through two rounds for a complete workout!

10 MINUTE JUMP ROPE WORKOUT

• 2 minutes regular two feet jump

• 1 minute left foot only

• 1 minute right foot only

• 2 minutes alternate feet

• 1 minute jump side to side

• 1 minute jump front to back

• 1 minute jump as fast as you can

• 1 minute regular two feet jump

 

XOXO,

I love pairing my crop tops with boyfriend jeans, it gives me a chill and relaxed look. This top is one of my favorites because of the turtle neck! I can easily transition it to Fall by throwing a blazer over it and brown or black booties! I'll style it again once it gets cooler..be on the lookout.

How do you rock your crop tops?

This bandeau is perfect for an outdoor concert or amusement park. We've had some cool nights in NYC so throwing a button up or kimono over the top can complete the look and help you stay warm. And yes I wore these shorts in a previous outfit this week, am I the only one that repeats? I love these shorts and since finding them on a recent trip back home I've been wearing them out. LOL
