Like many, daily workouts keep me feeling my best both physically and mentally. But let's face it ladies, when you are on your period, it's often difficult to feel motivated and comfortable exercising. I learned over the years that making myself get out to move and break a sweat during my "time of the month" ultimately makes me feel so much better!

Thanks to the new U by Kotex® FITNESS* products, keeping your workout regime up during your period has never been easier. I personally love that the U by Kotex® FITNESS* tampons come with a plastic FITPAK that is durable, compact and discreet...perfect for stashing in your purse or gym bag. U by Kotex® has also just released FITNESS* Liners and Ultra Thin Pads that move with your body as you exercise. Learn more info about all of these products here.

Here are a few other of my tried-and-true tips for exercising and feeling your best through your period ::

1. Wear stretchy, high-waisted leggings like this pair. I find that high-waisted pants best "slim" the bloat and keep me feeling more confident working out! 

2. Drink as much water as possible and stay away from salty foods to help battle the bloat.

3. Even if you feel tired and crampy, try to take at least take a walk. Movement really helps everything!

4. Listen to your body. If you are tired and need a nap or an early bed time, get the extra zzzz's!

5. Yoga, pilates and barre workouts are my favorite during my period since they are low-impact and involve lots of stretching, which helps relieve body aches.

Shop my fitness gear below. These leggings really are amazingly comfy and flattering, and this tank is a new favorite...I have it in two colors!

Friday Five

Accessories, Casual Outfit Inspiration, Home Decor, Mom Style, Spring/Summer StyleLauren2 Comments

Happy Friday! Here are this week's favorites, plus a great Mother's Day gift idea!

1. This white top. In my opinion, a white top + denim shorts is the perfect weekend uniform, and this $39 one-shoulder top is such an easy piece to throw on to look stylish yet stay comfy! I paired it last weekend with my favorite cut-offs, and these turquoise statement earrings that I can't stop wearing with everything! 

shoes | dress | vest | bag, another less expensive option here | bracelet

2. These wedges. These gorgeous wedge sandals are hands-down one of the best Spring/Summer shoe purchases I have EVER made. They are comfortable and literally go with everything from jeans to dresses to shorts. I cannot say enough good things about them. They are a slight-spurge but worth every penny!

3. This book. Author Jody Bennett Reichel is a dear family friend that has known me since I was a little girl. Her new book, Still Before The Dawn, is an absolutely beautiful book, full of truth and encouragement. I keep this book on my nightstand, and love picking it up whenever I need a dose of truth, faith and hope! The illustrations are gorgeous, and this book makes a lovely Mother's Day present. Enjoy free shipping with code SBTDSHIPSFREE.

Also, these adorable pajamas are super soft and a perfect summer weight! They would make a great pairing with this book for a fun Mother's Day Gift idea!

4. This swimsuit. There is something so classy and chic about a black one-piece swimsuit. This one from Wala Swim is crazy flattering and the kind of suit you are sure to love for years. Enjoy 20% off this suit as well as any Wala Swim purchase {my favorite source for quality, flattering swimwear} with code EDITBYLAUREN20.

5. This ruffled tank. I received this pretty tiered tank in the mail this week from my friends at WAYF and it was love at first site! The colors and fit are so feminine and pretty! It's just $55, too. I am wearing a size XS for reference.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Stylishly yours,

Going Gingham

Casual Outfit Inspiration, Mom Style, Spring/Summer StyleLauren1 Comment

It's no secret that GINGHAM is my favorite print of the season. I recently blogged about one of my favorite gingham tops, and have since added four more fab gingham pieces to the mix that I wanted to share.

CeCe blouse | Hudson jeans | Steve Madden shoes | Nordstrom BP tote | c/o Julie Vos cuff | tassel earrings | Karen Walker Sunglasses

This blue and white gingham top is just so cheery! I love this happy print paired with other brights, in this case hot pink tassel earrings and yellow cork heels!

If you are looking for a carry-all tote for Summer, this one is so fab for the price. It comes in multiple colors and can be carried as a tote, purse, travel carry-on or even a beach bag!

Anthropologie dress | Tory Burch convertible bag | c/o Julie Vos cuff | c/o Moon & Lola earrings | Mac lipcolor in Personal Statement | Karen Walker sunglassses

This sweet gingham dress is perfect for a daytime wedding, shower or brunch event. The tie-neck straps can be tucked in to the dress to change up the look. It's super soft and airy, and great for a hot Summer day. It just went on sale for under $100! It runs large, so be sure to size down. I am wearing an XS Petite.

If you are on the hunt for a practical bag to dress up and/or travel with this summer, this Tory Burch bag converts from a crossbody to a clutch. It's a great bag to take on a trip since you can use it a crossbody during day and then a clutch at night, and also makes an amazing Mother's Day gift! {If you haven't yet seen my Mother's Day 2017 Gift Guide, be sure to check it out!}

Halogen top | Hudson jeans | c/o Henri Bendel bag | Sam Edelman pumps

I love this gingham peplum because it looks sophisticated layered under a jacket and can be dressed down with jeans or skinny pants.

Nordstrom top | Sun & Shadow cutoffs | c/o Rebecca Minkoff bag | Steve Madden sandals |  c/o Kendra Scott cuff | tassel earrings | Karen Walker sunglasses 

This cute little $39 cold-shouldered top is a great casual, everyday gingham piece. It's perfect with cutoffs as well as white denim, and can even be tucked into a high-waisted skirt. This top runs a bit short in length, so if you are long waisted, be sure to size up!

This Rebecca Minkoff white hobo bag is a new addition to my Spring/Summer handbag collection and makes the perfect everyday carry-all...especially for all you mamas! The braiding detail on it is gorgeous, and I love that the dual-straps allow for it to be carried as a shoulder-bag or a cross-body.

Last but not least, I wanted to let you all know that one of my favorite accessory companies, BaubleBar, is having a BIG three-day sale, offering up to 50% off new Spring styles. I have included some of my favorites from the sale below, and you can also shop all the sale items here! It's a great time to stock up on colorful statement jewelry for Summer, as well as gifts!

Stylishly yours,
