Happy Monday beautiful friends! I’m stoked to start this week. I’ve started doing a few things everyday, literally in the last week that have totally kept me feeling re-fueled, energized, and ready to take on anything! The number one thing is my Bullet Proof Coffee (not an ad) lol! Secondly I have been listening to podcasts daily that are focused on health along with daily scripture reading and I managed a few good lifts at the gym as well.  I want to share more on the bullet proof coffee after I have done it for a full 30 days, but so far it has been 7 days and I am down 3 pounds, I have unbelievable mental clarity, concentration and energy.  Needless to say, I am excited to see if this continues into my second week .  Have any of you ever tried Bullet Proof?! Please share with me your thoughts in the comments below!

Today I am wearing a dress from Tolittlearrows! This striped dress is an absolute winner and would be the perfect transition to Fall piece.  I would totally wear this with a flannel and a pair of booties as the weather gets cooler, or even a black leather jacket and a black OTK boot.  As you can see I am totally getting into Fall mode and looking at pieces that I can take into the new season.  How would you style this dress for Fall?!
