Seriously where did July go?  I feel like I was just writing my birthday weekend recap in NYC and now it’s the end of the month.  This Summer is really flying by!  Before you know it, college football will be back.  This week was pretty hectic with work but it’s all worth it because I’m off today.  Hooray for a three day weekend!  Make sure to follow along on snapchat (@meetatthebarre).  Let’s get into the favorites from the week!

Black open back dress

Dress Susana Monaco find here ||| Shoes Topshop find here


I watched all four minutes of this video waiting for Rihanna’s got to be fly outfit reveal and nope….she wears the glittery trash bag jumpsuit the whole time.  Mark also asked me the other day who was singing the song and my response was “with how my they digitized her voice it could have been me for all that matters“.

Seriously how amazing does this recipe look?  Perfect Summertime food.

Some of my favorite at home workouts from Amber and the 21 day fix.  This booty workout is a burner.

I do a majority of these already but I learned a few new ones for must do’s whenever you travel.

Did you read my post about my feeling on niche blogging and how to incorporate Fashion posts into your blog in an authentic way?  If not check it here.

I finally picked up this polish, can’t wait to get you a full review.

I need this dress in my life.  My favorite workout top from the Nordstrom sale has been restocked.  Need shopping a shopping guide?  Find it here.

    So much YES on that last gif about the Justin Timberlake song. Ugh. It’s in a playlist at barre and it makes me irrationally cranky and makes the warm up feel that much longer !

  18. Emily says:

    What rock have I been living under that I haven’t heard JT’s new song?! And now I’m guessing I don’t want to hear it…haha.

    I’ve been eyeing several Zella tops recently and wondering if they’d be any good. Looks like you just convinced me!

  21. Tiffany says:

    That’s the problem with radio these days; they overplay every damn song until you’re just so sick of it. And yay for gifts at the front door. Those are the best days.

  22. kristen says:

    hahaha i thought i was the only one who disliked the new justin timberlake song… i change the station immediately. i didn’t hate it when it first came out, but it is seriously on every bloody day now.
    definitely checking out that travel link you shared!
