Until it officially warms up, I’ll be styling my faux leather leggings on a weekly basis! Today’s take on leather leggings: add a sporty stripe sweater & pop of leopard!
Happy Thursday y’all & happy February! (How is it already February?!) We’re almost to the weekend, thank goodness. I am so ready for it. Why has this week seemed so long?! Tonight’s dinner at our favorite restaurant is getting me through the work day. I’m that girl that dreams of dinner plans right after lunch. Anyone with me?! 😜
These leggings have been in weekly rotation, as I am getting sick of most items in my closet right now. Luckily, they’re super versatile and so comfy! If you missed my review on them, read this first. Today’s take on them, a sporty vibe. Well this is my take on sporty. I am LOL’ing because I am sure some of y’all are rolling your eyes at the word sporty being associated with this look. I love the pop of colors with a touch of leopard. Okay, really the sneakers are the only thing that makes this look sporty. But I am loving it, so I’m rolling with it!

Happy Wednesday y’all! I hope everyone’s week is going well! I’ve been feeling slightly under the weather, but that didn’t keep me from missing my haircut this week.

Styling camo pants for winter with a cozy pink sweater & a pop of leopard!
Happy Monday y’all! I hope everyone had an amazing weekend. We took it pretty easy, spent some time with friends & watched the CATS get a BIG W Saturday! Which pretty much just made our weekend right there. Plus we tried the best new (to us) brunch spot yesterday. If you’re local, you need to try it ASAP.
Let’s chat about this look, shall we?! I had actually intended on having another post up for y’all today, but I can’t decide the approach I want to take with it– I’m indecisive to say the least– so until then, I am sharing this cozy sweater & camo combo. I loved this camo pant combo from the fall, but I almost forgot I had these britches in my closet until a few weeks ago. To switch it up a bit, I knew I wanted to pair the neutral print with a pop of color for winter. This sweater is SO cozy btw! I have worn it on so many occasions, and I’m finally getting around to sharing it here.
How would y’all style camo pants for winter?!

I’ve managed to stay pretty healthy over the past few months, but I can almost feel something coming on… Fingers crossed it stays away! And I’ll definitely use this as an excuse to sleep in & take it easy. It is supposed to be rather pretty in the bluegrass this weekend, so I might have to get out to walk the pups & grab some brunch. Do y’all have any fun weekend plans?!

While spring is on the brain, the January weather has brought me back to reality. Today’s fun faux fur coat is making the cold days a little more bearable!
Happy Thursday y’all! I hope everyone has had an amazing week so far. The Mr. has been out of town, and I am beyond ready for him to get home tonight, but other than that I can’t complain. In the meantime, I’ve made this amazing recipe, got a chemical peel at my favorite local medispa and did a little spring shopping.
But until the weather warms up enough for me to actually wear my early spring buys, I’ve been living in this fun faux fur coat! It was one of my favorite Christmas gifts, and I’ll be so sad when I have to put it up for the warmer months. I’ve paired it with my favorite faux leather leggings, and you know I couldn’t resist adding a little pop of leopard 😊

Nutrition can be a tricky thing, and today I am sharing what I eat during my low carb days. A low carb diet can be intimidating, but it doesn’t need to be!

Happy Wednesday y’all! I am so excited to share the post with y’all today! It’s all about the low carb life. I know it’s a little different than the usual outfit around here, but we’re mixing it up in 2018, remember?! With my participation in this bootcamp, one key nutritional component is carb cycling. What is carb cycling? For two days (in a row) out of the week, you cut your carbs significantly. My goal each week, is to stay under 50 net carbs per ‘low carb’ day. Net carbs= carbohydrates – fiber. Fiber is your friend y’all! Just to give you an idea of my carb intake on a normal calorie day, it is 191 g of carbohydrates.

Upon download, you’ll plug in your weight, goal weight, how many pounds you want to lose a week & your activity level. This will provide you an outline of your target macros for each day.*
When I first began this program in the summer of 2017, honestly I was a little lost when it came to nutrition. I just thought of carbs as breads, grains, pasta, cereal, etc. Wrong. Carbs are in nearly everything! It definitely took some adjusting for me to find ways to make my low carb days as enjoyable as possible. So today, I’m here to share what all I’ve learned over the past 6+ months!

Prep your closet for spring with an affordable off the shoulder sweater you can wear now & into spring! It’s only $30 & comes in 7 colors!
Happy Tuesday y’all! I hope everyone had a productive Monday to kick off their week. I did a little prep for the week ahead and I’ll admit, I am currently typing this post wearing the exact outfit I shared with y’all yesterday. No shame y’all, those pieces are that good.
But let’s chat about this outfit shall we?! I am always skeptical about off the shoulder sweaters during the winter months because let’s face it, they’re not the smartest outfit choice for those really cold days. They don’t fit under coats conveniently, and who wants to bare their shoulders in winter?! Normally, not me. Why the change of heart? Well first, this sweater is only $30. Second, a little self tan helped 😉 Third, this color is so good. I love it so much, but if a light blue isn’t your thing, there are 6 other colors to choose from. And fourth, this sweater is versatile. You can wear it with both sides off both of your shoulders and totally transition it into spring. I can’t wait to wear this sweater with some white jeans & slides!
