LOOK: I Prevail Concert

2019-07-17 15_38_16-↞kirsten krupps↠ (@kirstenkrupps) • Instagram photos and videos

Who doesn’t love a good rock show to break up the monotony of the workweek?! Well, probably not everyone, but I sure do! I had the pleasure to see Justin Stone, Issues, and I Prevail on the Peoria Riverfront last night with 105.7 the X and Inked Entertainment. My mom and I hit up Thyme for some dinner and drinks prior to the show. I’m obsessed with the Kentucky Bees Knees drink and their Brussel sprouts (trust me, just try them).

I went for a very rocker look for the show and probably the only appropriate place for this shirt – an outdoor rock concert. I’m glad I did, though, because it was a hot one, even after the sun went down. I could not wait to hop in the shower real quick after I got home.

Unfortunately, I cannot find any of the exact pieces online for this outfit. They’re all out of stock or unlisted, so I tried to find similar pieces for you!

LOOK: Sushi Lady Date

Sometimes you feel like dressing up and going out with a friend for a fun lady date! A friend and I decided to hit up a sushi place then a couple bars a couple weeks ago. It was a fantastic time and hopefully, we can do it again soon! I went with a simple outfit, just a bodysuit, jeans, and some cute heels!

LOOK: Sunday Fun Day at a Winery

Processed with VSCO with a10 preset

Yesterday, I had a fun afternoon at a local winery. Wine, cheese and crackers, and a great view?! Sign me up! The weather actually cooperated and it didn’t rain, so it ended up being a pretty great way to spend a Sunday. Added bonus: Midwest wines are typically pretty sweet, so I had lots to choose from! I went with one that was similar to chardonnay and then we split a Smoked Gouda and Dill Cheddar cheese.

I went with a simple, trendy, and comfy outfit for the day, with my favorite part being the Panama hat! I’m going to try to go a little more in depth to my outfits going forward on here and provide the items exactly or at similar ones if you’d like to recreate my look.

Look: Graduation Outfit

2019-05-23 10_58_35-↞kirsten krupps↠ (@kirstenkrupps) • Instagram photos and videos

This past weekend my brother graduated with his Doctorate in Physical Therapy down in St. Louis! It’s quite warm down there and I wanted to wear something comfortable, but cute. I found this white romper from Vici Collection and I knew that I had found what I was wearing. Cute, sophisticated, and easy-to-wear. I got a TON of compliments from random strangers, so I was definitely feeling myself while I was wearing it. I paired it with some simple block heals and gold jewellery.

Ellie Activewear Review

I’ve been working out 3-4 days a week consistently for over a year now (hells yeah!) and I noticed that I’m much more motivated to work out when I’ve got cute workout clothes. I know, but whatever works, right? I was searching around online for a subscription box for quality workout clothes and came across Ellie Activewear (use this link and get 25% off your first order). They had cute styles and I get to choose which outfit I want each month or even pause my box for that month. They had 30% off your first box, so I decided to give it a try! The first box was $37.47 and my normal boxes are $49.95, which includes tax and shipping.

You also have the option of just the outfit or upgrading to receive 2 workout/lifestyle related items in your box. I chose the 5-item option.

My very first outfit was First Impressions. I loved the pattern on the pants with the matching sports bra. I also got a free rose gold water bottle as a new customer. My two items that came along with my box were yoga socks (I actually needed these!) and a foot roller. I must admit, I use the foot roller ALL THE TIME at home when I’m on the computer. I didn’t realize how much I’d enjoy one of these! It feels great and as someone who tends to get sore arches, this works like a charm.

I got a size small in all items – bra, shirt, and pants. I’m 5’6 and 125 lbs and my current measurements are 35′ bust, 26′ waist, and 37′ hips. On the first of the month, I get an email letting me know it’s time to select my outfit or pause that month. It ships out the following week and tends to arrive mid-month, about the 15th or so. I do wish that this was a little faster because I get so excited after I’ve picked out what I’m getting. I’m probably just being impatient.

Everything fit great and the pants ARE squat proof – which is very important! My gym gets very hot in the weight room and I do workout in just a bra and pants sometimes, so I appreciate that these are high waisted and I don’t feel like I’m showing off too much skin in them. Along with your box, you can purchase bras, tops, and bottoms from Ellie directly, which I’ve done also. They tend to go on sale and are reasonably priced at around $16-$20 for most items,

Overall, I’m extremely pleased with my Ellie Activewear items and I’m currently waiting for my 3rd box to arrive. Again, if you’d like to give it a try, use my link for 25% off your first order!

LOOK: Dinner + Concert

2019-05-08 12_33_57-↞kirsten krupps↠ (@kirstenkrupps) • Instagram photos and videos

Last night I saw Tides of Man, I the Mighty, and Polyphia at the Castle Theatre in Bloomington, IL! I was so excited to see Tides of Man for the first time and I the Mighty again. I could not wait to wear these snakeskin flare pants, how cool are they?! I paired them with a simple black halter bodysuit, pointed booties, and a floppy hat.
