Scrolling through my Instagram posts from last spring, I realized something: I had gotten into a yoga pants rut. I started practicing yoga at BIG Power Yoga in January 2017. I signed up for their 40 Days Stretch Yourself Challenge, practiced yoga 6 out of 7 days a week, and never looked back.
It turns out yoga is my thing, y’all! The only problem was that I was wearing yoga clothes 6 out of 7 days a week and not really presenting myself as a personal stylist. It’s hard to sell yourself as a fashion expert when you never wear “real” clothes!
So in May, I committed to getting dressed, styling my hair, and wearing makeup at least 3 times a week and posting pictures on Instagram. Since I hadn’t worn most of my new or past season spring clothes, I also decided to do shop my closet for all my outfits, and I tagged my posts with #shopyourcloset and #noshoppingchallenge.
I set another goal of wearing sleeveless tops without a sweater or jacket. This might not seem like a big deal, but I’m self-conscious about my arm fat and rarely wore tops that showed my arms. It’s waaaaaay too hot in Houston to wear sleeves in the summer, so I decided this would be the year I’d get over it and go sleeveless. I used the hashtag #loveyourarms on those posts.
These are all the outfit pics I posted on Instagram in May. I could wear white jeans, a cute top, and sandals every day when it’s warm. It’s such an easy outfit formula that anyone can copy. I tried to mix it up with other bottoms. Can you tell I love orange, white, and blue??
The foundation of my wardrobe is cabi, a women’s clothing line sold at home shows and private appointments. Some of the things I’m wearing are from past seasons; others are available through my cabi stylist, Lisa Rosenfeld, here or through the links below.

Most of the other clothes in my May outfits are from Talbots or local boutiques. I’ve linked the current Talbots items and a few shoes, too. The purse and all of my jewelry is from Stella & Dot. You can find current pieces here.
I really had fun shopping my boutique – it’s full of everything I love! I can’t wait to get dressed in the morning, and I feel confident in what I’m wearing.
