A Day in the Life with Karen

She's not like a regular Karen... She's a cool Karen

"I am a sharer of all things in my life: fashion, wellness, beauty, food and everything in between," said Karen Ortega, who was born and raised in Ecuador and now lives in Kirkwood with her soon-to-be husband, Drew, and adorable doggy, Annie Hall. Follow Karen on Instagram @livetrulybien.

1. My day starts at F45 Des Peres, training with one of my favorite coaches, Cam Coppelli.

2. Summer-to-fall transitional outfit (dress and boots are from Nordstrom in West County Mall)

3. After working out, I like to get an iced coffee and a breakfast sandwich from Teleo Coffee.

4. In the summer and fall, I love visiting the Kirkwood Farmers’ Market for flowers, fresh fruit and pumpkins.

5. At the end of the day, I like to take Annie to K9 Kremery for some Maple Bacon ice cream.

6. For dinner, my fiancé, Drew, and I love going to one of our favorite restaurants, Olive + Oak, in Webster Groves.
