Whether you’re an avid runner or starting off the new year with a new exercise routine, stretching is key.

Lisa from LMP Collections shows us how to do 5 easy stretches that can be added to any workout regimen.

5 Stretches To Do in the Morning

“Since I’m a runner, and training for a half marathon here in April, stretching is a BIG part of preventing injury and a great way to loosen up tight muscles. Stretching in the morning is a great way to start off the day and is also very relaxing. Benefits include less muscle aches, more energy, and better posture.” 5 Stretches To Do in the Morning 5 Stretches To Do in the Morning

Meet Stephanie: Stephanie is a twenty-something, former ballerina turned PR pro living in South Florida. Addicted to fashion, she started her blog, The Style Bungalow, in March 2014 as a way to share her personal, relatable style, inspirations and thoughts. She believes the choices you make in your day-to-day outfits can send a powerful message. From cool confidence to chic and sophisticated to free-spirited and creative, she feels it’s important to reflect who you are and what you feel through your personal style. When she’s not home blogging, working or dancing the night away, Stephanie can be found running around town searching for cool pieces, spending time with her friends or soaking up the Florida sun!

What Inspired Stephanie’s Look: “These jeans are perfect. I’m petite, about 5’2”, so finding a pair of flares that fit my frame without any alterations is rare! I love how they fit slim through the thigh and slightly flare out from the knee, making my legs look a mile long. They also have a cool, worn-in feel to them and the stretch-denim is very comfortable.

I styled these flares with a chunky knit sweater and a chic belt cinched at the waist with block-heeled sandals to add height. I layered on lots of rings, wore my favorite gold watch and a pair of aviators.”

What Inspired Nichole’s Look: “This year, I’m experimenting with lighter denim washes and comfortable fits. I can’t get enough of these distressed Tomgirl jeans because they strike the perfect balance between a skinny jean and true boyfriend jeans. The fit makes me feel feminine while still exuding a relaxed look that is perfect for a fun day with friends. This lighter wash inspired me to create a winter white look complete with a chunky off-white turtleneck and nude pumps. The pumps elevate the look from day to night giving us all a reason to take those Tomgirl jeans out to dinner for date night.”

“This look is so perfect for New Years. If you’re spending the night out on the town and spending hours waiting for the clock to strike midnight, you want to be comfortable, but also super stylish.

What to Wear Christmas Morning

Christmas morning is a magical time filled with opening presents and spending quality time with family. Caitlin from Dash of Darling invites us into her home and shares her Christmas traditions. What to Wear Christmas Morning

“Merry Christmas, darlings! Ever since I was little my family has always shared the same Christmas morning tradition and today I am excited to share it with you. First, I just wanted to say that I believe traditions are an important part of the holidays. They are a powerful way to bring the family together to connect and make lasting memories. Our holiday is all that more special thanks to our yearly yuletide traditions.”What to Wear Christmas Morning What to Wear Christmas Morning

“When I was younger I could never sleep a wink on Christmas eve. I would always wake up in the middle of the night crazed with impatient excitement waiting for my mom to come into my room to tell me it was ok to come upstairs by the tree. As I have gotten older, I prefer to sleep in just a little longer, but one thing has remained the same… I love to be comfortable (yet cute for those Christmas morning jammy photos). My family has always held the tradition of opening up one present on Christmas eve after we watch a holiday movie and read stories from the Bible. This present is usually, you guessed it, new jammies. This year, I wanted something cute and cozy that I could wear year-round, so I opted for these super comfortable Aerie classic joggers, lace bralette, satin tank, knit scarf and soft socks. I feel super relaxed and snug as a bug.”What to Wear Christmas Morning
