Vintage sailor dress, Bebe boots, Target hat

 I was pleased to open the mail to find a vintage grunge sailor dress from the wonderful and glorious Ebay! Now, I know I have been wearing my bowler hat a lot lately. but I can't seem to muster up the energy to do my hair so it is a fabulous alternative. This dress was inspired from my perpetual love of nautical wear and Alexa Chung's pretty version at "The Woodie Awards". I love how vintage can look so modern! 

The new year has made me feel very optimistic and I am trying to hard to put 100% into work, 100% into the blog, 100% into my relationship and 100% into the gym (is this even possible LOL- 400%). You know what I mean. I think this hard work may be a blessing and a curse. I have to work overtime to get everything done and I have to be super organized.

My boyfriend is a Crossfit athlete and he competed in the games last year. This year I was told that I will be on the affiliate team with a few other of the gym's athletes. I am not excited about this, but excited for a challenge and to be a part of a team. I just hope I can do it. I have a few months to train really hard and eat perfect! I want to train hard before I commit to this new adventure! I am going to need all of your support!

That dress is adorable! Vintage dresses are the best, and I love how you update is with the bowler hat! A very cool and eclectic look! Yes, very much like Alexa! I think you pull the look off even better than her actually!

One of my resolutions this year was to start working out more, too! I worked out a lot while I was in school at the school gym. But now that I am back at home, it's been harder. But I've started running outside again and I love it so much!

That's AWESOME about the crossfit stuff. My husband does crossfit, doesn't compete, but he does the work outs and loves it. If I didn't have an ankle problem I'd be going full force as well.

Good luck!
