Brand Review: Alphalete Athletics

I love to shop, but lately, I can never find anything I want unless it’s activewear. I’ve tried so many brands, most of which are crazy expensive, and most of the time I’m impressed. However, I thought I would try some other brands I’ve discovered through my research in the online fitness community. When you study digital media and monetization of the fitness industry, you’re bound to find some brands not promoted through traditional media. That is exactly how I found Alphalete Athletics.

Thanksgiving in Anthropologie {Year 2}

Anthropologie PonchoIf you were around last year, I posted this Thanksgiving in Anthropologie look. Well, guess what? It’s another Thanksgiving holiday and I’m once again in my favorite fall brand. Anthropologie just screams the fall season to me. I find myself shopping Anthro more often in the late summer and fall, and never seem to purchase any other times a year. While I’m a fan of their dresses, I just don’t have many places to wear their beautiful spring and summer dresses. Fall sweaters are timeless, however, and this poncho fits the bill perfectly.  (more…)

Stripes at the Pumpkin Patch: What to wear when it’s warm?

Of course I waited until the second to last weekend of October to go to the pumpkin patch. I haven’t been in a very long time, and there’s a popular spot close to where I live. I convinced my little sister to tag along and we headed to the pumpkin patch on a very warm, yet very windy Saturday afternoon.


Why I don’t like Fast Fashion

Find the best pieces at Forever21 | Chambery and Champagne

Forever21 is not my favorite place to shop. But sometimes, I have to go in and “just see.” Nine times out of ten I walk out with nothing. You really have to know where to look, and how to look, in order to get the best buys. There are piles upon piles of clothes (that’s the nature of fast fashion), 70% of which is under $20. Fast fashion is a term used to explain the speed clothing moves from the catwalk to the store. Usually, it’s cheap fabric, made in bulk, and sold for a relatively inexpensive price.  (more…)

The best sweater from SheIn

Brown Sweater from SheIn | Chambery and Champagne

Fall is here, kind of. It seems this year Iowa has decided to go from summer to more summer, to winter, and back to summer again! I received this beautiful brown sweater from SheIn, and I was craving a photoshoot. So outside we went, thinking that a 6:30 p..m call time would be late enough where we still had light but it would be cool. We were wrong.  (more…)

Striped Summer Romper

Father’s Day was yesterday and we finally had a day under 80 degrees! I took advantage by putting together this easy look. Rompers are my go-to summer ensemble because they’re easy to style and comfortable for moving around when it’s warm. This quarter-sleeved romper from was the perfect option for a day outside with my family! (more…)

Spring Style with SheIn

We’re back with a fashion post {finally!} and I am so excited to be collaborating with SheIn this week to show you all a cute and inexpensive way to look put together for a spring event. This look is perfect for a date night, wedding or baby shower, or even a nice lunch or dinner with family while on spring vacation.

*Thank you to SheIn for collaborating with me on this post! This dress was gifted to me for free, but all opinions are mine.  (more…)

Styling my J.Crew Red Winter Coat

J.Crew Windowpane Parka | Chambery and ChampagneMerry Christmas, loves!

Everyone needs a red winter coat. I feel like that could be a hit Christmas song. No? Just me? Ok. But really, I am obsessed with this red and cream windowpane parka from J.Crew. I actually was able to pick this up during their Black Friday 40% the entire store sale! J.Crew has never done anything like that before and I guarantee you people took advantage, I know I did. (more…)

J.Crew Pink Blazer Coat

This jacket is my all-time favorite coat. Although incredibly impractical with no zipper or hood, the wool and tweed make it very warm and perfect for dressing up a a casual outfit. I purchased this coat from the J.Crew Black Friday 40% sale, along with a beautiful red windowpane parka and I have never been happier. It is my goal in life to fill my closet with beautiful coats.

Thanksgiving in Anthropologie

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you all are celebrating with family and friends, and remembering all we have to be grateful for going into the holiday season. 

Anthropologie is one of my all-time favorite stores, and I’ll use any excuse to go in and shop around! This time, it was 25% off all tops and 15% off for my birthday month that persuaded me to take the plunge and find a few cute things for the upcoming holiday.  (more…)
