Sailing Lake Minnetonka

















A couple of weekends ago, I went sailing on Lake Minnetonka with the lovely Zhenya. It was the perfect fall day for it. We had a blast. With my sperrys kicked up in the air, the sun shining down on us, and the beautiful blue lake surrounding us, it couldn't have been better. I could get used to afternoons like that…

Moments of Chic with Piperlime









I took my brand new sweater for a walk in the woods and it was love at first step…  and every one after. I love the bright green color, it's super comfortable, and it has fun little embellishments all over it. A girl just cannot help herself. Thought I'd style it in standard Ruby Girl fashion, with a large dose of prep. The classic trench coat, equestrian riding boots, and monogrammed clutch do the trick a bit I think. To add a twist, I wore my Kendra Scott necklace. I love the uniqueness of the iridescence, the stone is gorgeous. 

It was so fun to partner with Piperlime on their #MomentsofChic challenge. It's one of my favorite stores, they carry such fab brands and designers. And they sent over the most perfect pieces. I adore the sweater, as you can tell, and will be styling the jeans in a post later this week. Can't wait to show you!

Workout Essentials











So I've been using Mio Skincare products before and after workouts. They're available at Life Time Fitness which is where I work out, so it couldn't be more convenient! Hands down my fav is the Liquid Yoga. O EM GOODNESS, it's incredible. You just pour a solid glug into a steaming hot bath after your work-out and watch your worries and any muscle tension at all get relaxed into submission. Until I met Mio, I had no idea the scope of skincare beyond facial routines. I feel like I've been swimming in the shallow end of the skincare pool all my life. Tightening serums and smoothing creams, these things like actually work. So I'll be kickin and splashin in the deep end with Mio for a while.
