Month: January 2017

Weekend, where did you go!?

Can you come back? Pretty please. I promise I will pay more attention to you and take it easy! For all you Mamas out there, BLESS YOUR HEARTS. I picked Palmer up on Friday afternoon and we spent the weekend shopping, snuggling, watching Mickey, eating at Charleston’s and picking¬†my SIL Lindsey’s wedding dress. He was SUCH a trooper all day but goodness gracious I got nearly no sleep. So even more than I already did, I admire you moms {and dads!} who do this every day! P gave us a run for our money but I know 100% that Kyle and I would totally trade sleepless nights for a little nugget of our own. Someday, right?! ūüôā Since a majority of my attire over the weekend included these new joggers, a loose tee and cardigan, I welcomed the excuse to get dressed in ‘real’ clothes on Sunday afternoon for a late brunch.

Perfect peplum.

It’s pretty obvious that I have a thing for stripes. Take a peak into my closet {yes, it’s color-coordinated} and you’ll see quite the stack of striped tops. It’s just a pattern I cannot say no to. They can be dressy, casual, beachy or business and I love myself a good versatile style. Pair a thin black and white stripe with a flirty peplum and you bet I bought it. Plus with a price tag of only $35 it was even more justifiable. The sad thing is this adorable little top sells out in seconds. I swear it’s sold-out more than it is available but if you catch it in your size, hit purchase immediately! I went with an XS and I feel like it fits TTS. The weather was somewhat acceptable yesterday, minus the fact that we’ve had maybe 3 hours of combined sun in like 3 weeks, so I was able to wear a lighter jacket¬†{exact jacket linked but my color is no longer available}¬†and these super cute tassel mules. Y’all if you’re in the market for a similar pair of shoes, buy these right now. I’m ordering in a 2nd color but I just haven’t decided which one just yet! Everything paired together created what was an easy look that made me crave Spring even more than I already do! Crossing my fingers that the bitter cold, blustery winds and excessive snow are a thing of the past!.

I’m currently dealing with a major case of the Mondays. Anyone else experiencing them as well!?

Music is good for the soul. We’ve probably all heard that phrase but I also think there should be some kind of phrase stating how impactful music can be in relation to exercise. There are absolutely times that I need to be quiet in my thoughts when I’m on a run or instances where silence […]

A week off–dang I’ve missed this! Last week was so crazy¬†but in such a great way. I spent 4 days in Kansas City executing a Sales Kick-off for nearly 150 internal employees and external vendors; something that myself and my 2 ‘instant besties’ pulled off over about a 10-day time period. Talk about chaotic, stressful […]

Winter storm Jupiter isn’t messing around! Usually when the Weather Channel hypes up big storms a week in advance they end up being so much less crazy than predicted. The Meteorologists talk up tons of snow, rain, severe threats, etc. and then you barely end up with a dusting of the white stuff. Well this […]

I love random outfit combinations. Especially when that combo is completely unexpected for¬†one reason or another. Like my bare legs when it was below zero. Sure it’s a little much but I’m also not spending extended amounts of time outdoors so YOLO. ūüėČ Last weekend I was doing a much-needed closet purge when I found […]

#1 Egg Sandwiches Yes, I know bread is basically the devil but sometimes I like to eat it. So sue me. And sometimes when I’m short on breakfast/lunch/dinner ideas I make egg sandwiches. It’s healthier than takeout and they’re freaking delicious if I do say so myself. Kyle is obsessed as well so that makes […]

Happy #WorkoutWednesday, babes! My plan in 2017 is to do 2 ‘weekly recaps’ of what my workouts for the week looked like each month and then the other 2 Wednesdays of the month do something more targeted like what supplements I swear by, etc. Hopefully this lay out will provide at least someone with some […]

Give me all the cozy, fleece, convertible tunics. A top that I can wear in more than one way, dress up and down and is equally as cozy as it is cute? Sold. Especially when it comes in 5 color choices and is under $55. And it’s even better when the material is super soft […]

The softest sweater to touch. No lie. To be¬†honest, I¬†fell in love with this sweater before I even put it on. I was just getting ready to walk into the dressing room at Zara’s North Park Center Store in Dallas when this subtle, fluttery-sleeve beauty caught my eye. It was clearly not in the right […]
