The Messy Project!


Inspired by the fabulous Kelly over at MessyDirtyHair, I was gratefully invited to take part in this project to show that fitness fanatics can have a little style as well! Well, at least I think so. So what is the Messy Project you may ask?

The Deal:
1 Top
5 Girls
5 Different Looks
1 Major Blog Post Day

“I know from my personal styling experience that a lot of people have trouble styling certain items. They may look at a top & instantly think, ‘I can’t wear that…what would I do with that?’ So I wanted to find a fun way to interact with other bloggers incorporating fashion help. Something to convey who we are. To show our style. To put our creative minds to work. To challenge us to step outside of the box. To express our inner fashionista. To show people the different ways to style an item depending on your body type & you. So #TheMessyProject was born.”
-Kelly of MessyDirtyHair

I know,  I’m not your typical blogger, but use my site as an inspiration tool, and a way to document my fitness lifestyle. However, I thought this would be a fun way to step out of the box, and do something a little different!

So here it is, the big Reveal!

Kelly sent us this fabulous sequin vest and we were left to style it ourselves. I’m a big believer that sequin adds the perfect touch to any look. When all else fails…add sequin!


I decided to go for a festive look to suit the season and the many holiday parties. Not to mention I am obsessed with this burgundy color right now, and my wardrobe can prove it!

What I wore: Tobi top; Zara skirt; Audrey Brooke heels; Chanel bag; Poshlocket, Baublebar & Michael Kors Jewelry.

So what did I learn from this project? Don’t be afraid to be yourself! Step outside of the box once in awhile. Most importantly, be yourself. I enjoy spending majority of my time in the gym, wearing yoga pants or running shoes. Also, prefer to be behind the camera. 😉 But, I also have a HUGE passion for fashion. And that’s me!

Don’t forget to check out the other lovely ladies of the Messy Project and see what they did with the sequin top:
