Girly Gift Guide!

Hey lovelies!

I’ve rounded up some of my fave present picks for the ladies in our lives!

Fossil Smart Watch -$275

This is gorgeous but pricey so it would be great to go in on with siblings for Mom!

Boss Babe mug – $9

For the boss babe in your life!

Sherpa quarter zip -$30

I honestly think this is the softest thing I’ve ever felt and it’s so affordable! It’s definitely an over sized fit so size down if you want the fit a little more snug.

This is perfect for the gal on the go!

THE Spanx leather leggings – $98

These are definitely on my Christmas list!

J Crew pavĂ© circle earrings – $25

This would be great for beauty lovers! This service sends you 5 beauty samples each month and for such a low price you can easily send these several months to find some new awesome staples!

Selfie Phone light – $11

This is the best way to get the “perfect” selfie from your smartphone. What we are all looking for in life!

Happy shopping and gifting, girlies!

Real talk in teal Corduroy

The other night I went out to dinner for my Brunswick bestie’s birthday. It was a small little dinner with a few friends and significant others. I wanted to pull together a look that was “fall-y” since we were finally having some cooler weather.

So I pulled out a pair of jeans that I don’t think I’ve worn in probably 6 months. I truthfully don’t know how to feel when I tell you that they were uncomfortable to be in or to look at myself in. I could zip them but there was a significant amount on “muffin top” going on. These amazing teal corduroy bell bottoms were the only long pants in my closet that would fit me.

As some one who has struggled with an eating disorder this is almost something to be proud of. However, I’m not proud. I’m annoyed that it means that I’ve been slacking off going to the gym even though it’s something that makes me happy. I know that it means that I need to add more veggies to my weekend diet and drinking less the whole week.

So as I write this I am wearing gym clothes because I did a 30 minute treadmill interval workout, I had a salad for lunch and chicken noodle soup for dinner. I’m making my way back to balance as opposed to leaning heavily into restriction or indulgence.

The first outfit I put together was not exactly suited for 70 degree weather so get ready to see that later on this year but I did up putting together a fall-friendly outfit that still made me over dressed for my BFF’s birthday dinner (and I didn’t care one bit!).

Budget Babe

When the boyfriend says he wants to go to dinner and you know exactly what you want to wear, that’s a darn good night!

I’ve been so excited about this outfit since I bought this t-shirt. Also, this t-shirt and this overall dress are $20 combined!!

Leopard shirt: $8

Overall dress: $20

Happy Shopping lovelies!

This outfit would be perfect for running errands after yoga or coping with fall temps on the way to the gym.

I love all of these pieces together and mixed with other outfits and would definitely recommend any of the item below!

Leggings: Nordstrom – $55

Sports Bra: Nordstrom Rack – $33

Target – $20

(As you can see, I love Target sports bras because they’re always super cute, comfortable, and supportive speaking from a medium-ly…gifted woman)

Sweater: Nordstrom Rack – $20 (a different Zella long sleeve)

Nordstrom – $60

Target – $20 (super cute long sleeve wrap top)

Here is a blooper for your personal enjoyment: me getting in touch with nature haha.

Happy shopping, lovelies!

Jammies for lyfe

I’m not going to say that I don’t love a large t-shirt and boy shorts to sleep in, because I 100% do. However, there’s something that makes you feel like you have your life together when you wake up in a matching set of pajamas. However, I’ve found that such sets can be kind of expensive.

I’ve linked everything in this picture below including this super cute mug to encourage hustling from ROX Jewelry Shop! Use code “kims15” for 15% off anything from their website! They have tons of other cute jewelry, apparel, and trinkets!

On Wednesday We Wear Pink

Hey lovelies!

I love a good Mean Girls quote as much as the next 90s girl. And truthfully, I love this shirt just about as much.

This shirt comes in 16 colors and in standard and plus sizes.

Also, Dick’s Sporting Goods is having a sale right now so they are buy one get one 50% off (and some are even an additional 15% off). I’m literally going to grab a couple more colors while they’re on sale because I love them so much.

I bought this polo (and 3 other colors) when I became a manager at work and wanted to a little bit more of a professional look even in a casual environment. These shirts make getting ready in the morning a breeze. I don’t have to worry about an undergarment situation, so I just throw it on and go. (I will say that the white is a teensy but sheer though)

I’m wearing a small and I really like the fitted cut. This color is the rose violet. However, having a little bit of a longer torso, sometimes it does pop out of the tuck when I lean over.

As a girly-girl in male dominated field, I love that this (especially in this color) lets me still express my femininity.

Happy shopping!
