Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night with my mind full with inspiration or a favorite song on repeat, to the point that all I can do is sit up and start writing. Last night was one of those nights.

Maybe since my birthday is around the corner, and turning another year older is on my mind; I couldn’t help but imagine all of the things I want to start checking off my list; one being exploring my own city. We are all guilty of falling into a routine, you know that wake up, work, workout, eat dinner, watch tv, bed, repeat type of routine but last night  I started craving more. Maybe it has something to do with all of our recent travels, but I am wanting something different. I want to read more, venture to new parts of the city I have yet to explore and listen to music that inspires me.

I always revert to the classics to find the most inspiration and this outfit is no different. A twist on the classic white and denim is the perfect blank slate. To itch that craving to explore, we ventured to a new part of the city last night.  A part full of leather wearing, tattoo filled folks, only to find myself in the most girly outfit I could find. But maybe it’s okay to feel different every so often.

A HIDDEN GEM

ADOD_TARTAN8ADOD_TARTAN10 ADOD_TARTAN1 ADOD_TARTAN12 ADOD_TARTAN9 ADOD_TARTAN11 ADOD_TARTAN6“I felt like we had a secret, just the two of us. Like that thing where you just wanna be with one person all the time. You feel like the two of you get something no one else gets.”- American Hustle

Yesterday was one of those days, just the two of us. To be honest, most of the time it is just the two of us (if you haven’t noticed already from Instagram).  Living in a town where we don’t know a sole except for co-workers and the next big city is a little less than an hour away, it is hard to meet friends. I guess it is just another sign of getting older, so for now it’s just the two of us and I am okay with it.

One thing is we both love is adventure; finding and trying new places, traveling, and stumbling upon those hidden gems in cities that only the locals know about.  So as the new year is well on its way, the jet setting continues… stay tuned because there are new and old cities on our list this year.  Next stop NYC.

The number one resolution for most people is kicking their workout routine into gear year after year.  For me, if I am feeling good while working out, I work out harder.  This may seem a little superficial but it works for me. I recently came across this new to me brand called Albion Fit, a company that strives on making quality, stylish workout wear.  It is the type of workout wear that you can be caught in all day long and not be embarrassed when you run into people at the grocery store.

To kick off the New Year, New You week, Albion Fit is giving away a $50 gift card to one lucky winner to start their year of working out on the right tract. Who says you can’t look good but still work hard!

Some of my favorites are the Retreat Tees (for the winter months and yoga), the Love Racer, these capris (love the girly touches), and this adorable tennis skirt. Albion fit is known for their attention to detail when it comes to workout wear. Let’s just say they know how to make a girl look good.

Follow the Rafflecopter to enter the giveaway, the winner will be announced on Friday, January 10th.

Since this week is all about starting off the new year in the right direction, Albion Fit is offering all ADOD readers 10% Off any Albionfit.com purchase with code dashdetails10 at checkout (exp.1/9/2014).
