Army of One

I am totally obsessing over army green, olive green, whatever you want to call it. I love the safari-esqe appeal it brings and how truly versatile it is. I treat it like a neutral paring it with anything from a punchy color to other neutrals like navy or beige. But my current preferred combo is an olive green piece with an overly feminine companion like this floral, peachy-pink top, creating a strong juxtaposition of the hard and soft.

Tried Hot Yoga

Please give me a moment to stray from my fashion explorations to share a fitness find. After hearing about hot yoga for years, I finally mustered up the nerve to try it (I was originally paralyzed by the idea of fainting in an awkward position because of the heat, inevitable causing a domino falling of my fellow yoga-ers). To my surprise, it was approachable, relatable, doable, and totally refreshing.

The "can-do" tone was very much set by the instructor, owner of Yoga Story, and well practiced and passionate yogi, Cindee Joslin. The cute studio off the Bentonville square proved to be a place of peace and inner exploration as I managed to somewhat successfully contort my body into all the positions.

Miss Cindee offers several different class times with several different types of yoga all in the comfort of 90 degrees (it literally felt comfortable). The best part: she charges by donation only ... now that is true passion. Check out Yoga Story's site for more info and look for me in future classes, the one sweating buckets and loving it.

Cargo Pants as Dress Pants

I am loving the trend of cargo pants as dress pants. From my observations, the secret to pulling it off is cuff 'em and pair 'em with sexy heels and a feminine top.
