H&M Off-the-Shoulder Dress

Everyday Outfits, My Style

It’s officially that hot and sticky time of year, when staying cool often takes precedence over looking cool. Luckily, this off-the-shoulder dress does double-duty! I’ve always been a sucker for a dress with pockets, and this one does not disappoint. I love it so much that I went back and got it in pink as well. And don’t be surprised if I show up to the ‘gram in the all-white version as well.

The Anthropologie sales rack continues to not disappoint, and I couldn’t be happier with this off-the-shoulder dress I picked up for a song. Every summer I treat myself to a new eyelet dress as a tradition (and a new straw purse and hat never hurts either). I usually opt for white, but this year I feel in love with this navy version with little floral details. It’s a sweet, romantic look that’s perfect for a trip to the fair or a picnic in the park.

On this day, we spent the afternoon at Coney Island, listening to music, strolling the boardwalk and gorging on way too many hot dogs and ice cream cones. But hey, you only live once…

Erin Condren LifePlanner™ Review

Lifestyle, Product Reviews

This post is brought to you in partnership with Erin Condren LifePlanner™. I received compensation and products for this post, but all views and opinions expressed are my own. Thanks so much for supporting the brands that make this site possible!

Erin Condren LifePlanner Review

True Story: I’m a little bit obsessive when it comes to keeping myself organized. I have to keep my desk clean and clutter-free in order to get any work done, and I’m relentless about checklists, calendars, and spreadsheets. With that being said, when I was invited to do an Erin Condren LifePlanner™ review and attend the the NYC launch party at Dylan’s Candy Bar, I immediately jumped at the chance.

Ever since starting my own business over three years ago, I’ve pretty much done most of my planning digitally – partly because my handwriting rivals that of a kindergarten, but I digress…

As my business has grown, and I’ve set my sights on some longer term goals and more complex projects, I find that there isn’t a substitute for going low-tech and putting pen to paper. I love the visceral and tangible act of writing down my personal and professional goals. It puts me much more in touch with what’s going on than typing on a computer.

Choose the LifePlanner™ That Works for YOU!

If you’ve taken a peek at my Instagram, then you know that I LOVE color! Planning and organizing can sometimes be a daunting task, but just one look at my brightly colored LifePlanner™ immediately puts a smile on my face and puts me in a good headspace for getting to work. The Erin Condren site offers tons of options for customization for your planner cover. I opted to have my name printed on the front, and you can have just your initials added as well. You also get the choice of either a horizontal or vertical layout. Vertical is great if you like to plan your days by time or into sections. I went with a horizontal layout since I mostly rely on my smartphone’s calendar for appointments. I use my planner to keep a general running list of activities I need to accomplish for the day/week/month/year.

Less is More

Yes, I know that half the fun in getting a gorgeous Erin Condren LifePlanner™ is playing with all of the fun stickers and accessories. But when you’re first starting out, I recommend just getting the minimal number of supplies and embellishments until you figure out your planning style. This rule applies especially if you’re prone to procrastination and distractions. I generally take the approach of plan first, add flair later.

Here are the tools I recommend for getting started:

  1. Mini Stylized Sticky Notes
  2. Customizable Event Stickers:
  3. Colorful Dual-Tip Markers (a good ol’ Sharpie also works):
  4. Wet Erase Marker (to write on the inside of LifePlanner™ covers and snap-in dashboards)

Make Time for It

This is probably the most important tip. I schedule at least two planning days in my calendar each month to help me stay on track for my personal life, my business, and my blog. It’s tempting to get distracted and put off planning for later, but I always regret it when I do. If you haven’t prioritized the important things, it’s so easy to fill your days with busy-work that doesn’t help move the needle towards reaching your goals. Luckily, my new Erin Condren LifePlanner™ is so fun that it makes me look forward to not just planning but also celebrating all of the fantastic things going on in my life!
