….and their right for great jeans!!

These high waisted rockstar jeans from @oldnavy are GREAT jeans! And what makes them even better is that they are currently 30+% off right now!! I will definitely be buying another pair or two while they are on sale and I can not recommend them enough. They hit at just the right spot on my tummy with enough stretch to be comfortable and the perfect wash.

H&M Work Wear Try On

Hey lovelies!

I have a TON of work travel this month because of conferences and I realized that I haven’t bought new work clothes in AGES. So I made a little trip to H&M and photographed a work wear try on to inspire y’all to do a spring refresh on your work wear!

First up is a blouse that I liked so much that I bought! I’ve been all about yellow recently and this too was so springy and comfy I couldn’t resist. (Truth: I have this exact same top in 2 other patterns 😬)

Similar long sleeve top – $15

This outfit is so stinking cute! Add a pair of nude or black flats and you are work day ready. These pants run a little small so I would size up one, I’m wearing a 6 here but I definitely would have bought an 8. The top is true to size and I am wear a small.

Tie front blouse – $35

Slacks – $15

These photos do not do the color of the dress justice. It was such a pretty olive/army green that is very on trend for spring this year. TTS, wearing a size 6. $25

Loved this dress so much I tried it in the yellow version too! $25

I cannot tell you how much I love this outfit! This whole outfit came home with me. Medium in the skirt and small in the top TTS

Blouse – $15

Skirt – $35

This one was a strong contender in the “come home with me” category but sadly limited funds means limited choices.

Not the exact but very close – $35

Another similar – $15

Last but not least, this super cute dress. This would be perfect if your office is a little more fancy than casual.

$35

Stay tuned in two weeks for how I styled the 3 pieces that I picked up today!

Happy shopping, lovelies!

Post-Christmas Home Decor Refresh

After my Christmas decor was packed away I felt like my apartment was sooo empty and bare. I put it off for a while because I am planning on moving to a house in July and it would just be one more thing that I would have to pack up and move. The bareness finally got the best of me this last weekend and I went to pretty much every chain home decor store in Brunswick. (That sounds more impressive than it is, there’s maybe 6 πŸ˜‚). The best part of it all was that JT wanted to come with me!

Tray: Target $30

Boxwood game plant: HomeGoods $30 (sorry cant link!)

Bronze too many sided object: (mine was on clearance but this one is similar) Pier1 $11

I’d been looking for one like this for a little while and I got this one on sale at HomeGoods! πŸ˜„. There are bunches of these at home decor shops and Amazon!

While I’m still looking something to go in the wire basket below my tv? I found these super cute vases that are currently on clearance!

Vases – Pier1 – $12

Basket – Target – $17

Bonus: I also got these super cute terry cloth Valentine’s Day hand towels for my kitchen! These are from HomeGoods and I cannot link them πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Happy shopping, lovelies!

Heart eyes over heart patches πŸ˜

Hey lovelies!

I’m thinking all things Valentine’s Day and I saw that Dede from @dreasupbuttercup got this sweater and fell in love!! Especially when I found out it was only $22!!

For this casual look, I paired it with this cranberry jumper dress and my fave black riding boots. This outfit would be cute for a casual workplace or lowkey evening outing. Not to mention I plan on wearing this until the GA heat returns since it’s not overly Valentines-y!

Let me know what you guys think and if you’d like a link to this cutie!

P.S. I also styled it for for a fancier evening look and I fell even more in love

Just-Torture-Yourself January

Just a girl, standing in front of an ice cream, asking it to love her πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜β€οΈβ€οΈπŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

This is JT’s “endearing” term for the little detox that I’ve been doing since January 7th and will continue through the end of the month.

Here are the basics:

  1. No alcohol
  2. Mostly healthy eating/count calories when possible (small treats when I get a severe craving -> mini drumstick ✌🏼)
  3. Workout 3-5 times per week
  4. At least 5k steps a day
  5. Train to be able to run a 5k
  6. Potentially find a 5k race to run

I was sick a lot in November/December so I slacked off on healthy eating and exercising (and who doesn’t indulge over the holidays?!). Because of all that I was/am carrying some extra weight that was not unhealthy but wasn’t necessarily making me happy. Hence this little jumpstart.

I know that not all of these things aren’t sustainable long term; life gets in the way and sometimes working out isn’t the most important thing in the world. Just like how these extra ten pounds and the way my body looks isn’t the most important thing in the world. Having the opportunity to worry about my waist line and not where I’ll get my next meal is a privilege and ultimately how much I weigh doesn’t change anything.

I will now get off my self love soap box but it is something that we should all internalize!

Happy January, lovelies!
