About a month ago I purchased these pants. I can’t tell you how much I have been loving them. When I first saw them on the Express site. I thought to myself, would I ever wear army leggings? I am not a big fan of printed leggings, but these may have changed the game for me.

I think I have worn them Sunday after church, when it is time to relax and watch Netflix.  As I’m writing this I and thinking to myself “how would these look with boots and dressed up?” I may be doing a lot to think that, but I wonder… If it comes out cute then you will see it in another post.

Hi friends,

I am writing this message from sunny California, Frank and I came out here to visit to attend some All Star Weekend activities. Prior to coming of course we had to pack, which is my favorite part of traveling. I know that is weird, I think most people are not a fan of packing, but I love it.

I decided to do a flat of one of the outfits I plan on wearing while I am out. Typically, when I pack, I like to take pictures of my outfits. It helps me to keep things organized. I have those pictures on my phone, but I look a mess in them and decided to avoid embarrassment and not post them 🙂

Be sure to keep a look out on how I style the outfits from my tip.

I consider myself to be a fitness enthusiast. Lately, I have been going to the gym and working out more consistently that I have in a couple of years. I’ve made some small changes that have made such a big difference in working out regularly.

  1. Go to a gym near you. Weather you go to a gym that is close to your job or right up the street from your house you will be more motivated to go when you see in the gym on a regular basis. In the past, I was a member of a gym that was about 20 minutes from my house and was not on my typical route home. I would find myself making up every excuse as to why I can’t make the gym that day.
  2. Always keep workout clothes in your car. There has been many times when I was out running errands and had a little time where I could run and have a quick workout.
  3. Create a schedule. Making a schedule is a great way I hold myself accountable. For example I never have plans on Wednesdays, and I know not to make plans because I go to the gym right after work.
  4. Walk. If you feel like you don’t have time take a walk.
  5. Love you workout clothes. Every so often I like to update my workout clothes if you have great workout clothes and don’t use them, they will be wasted.

Normally, I loathe wearing white pants. I never find a pair that is flattering on me. I really wanted a pair a few months back and found these in American Eagle, I did a blog post on them here. After wanting these pants so bad I realized I still can’t wear white pants in the winter. These pants are so comfortable, and because of that I am forcing myself out of my comfort zone and making myself wear these amazing wonderful pants.. All Year Long.

What is one way you are trying to force your self out of your comfort zone?

I talk a lot about being comfortable. I can’t express enough how important it is to me be comfortable on my casual days. I can’t imagine myself having a relaxing day wearing something like tight jeans. Torture!

I find myself constantly on the hunt for cute yet casual clothes. Enter the faux leather leggings. They have been a staple for me on the weekends since I have purchased them. Granted I am just wearing leggings, the different texture makes the look more put together which is my goal. I actually wore these pants a few post back, see them here.

A few years ago, if anyone asked me how I felt about Valentine’s Day I would have given them the side eye. Ask me how I feel about it today. Honestly, any day that allows me to get dressed up and celebrate something I am so for it. With that being said, here is my very first look for Valentine’s Day.

I found this shirt in the sale section at Express. Lately, I have been loving their items. I can find some really cute things at such a great price. The dresses fit me almost perfect — I love them. Speaking of dresses, does this dress look familiar? It is my favorite Calvin Klein Dress in black. I posted about this dress a few weeks ago, you can check out that post here.

What are your plans for Valentine’s Day? I would love to hear all about it.  Leave me a comment letting me know.

Blush Wrap Dress and a Blanket Scarf

Some days I just love to throw on a simple dress and accessorize it, in this case with a scarf and booties. The simpler the outfit the more flashy I like to get with my accessories. It’s really a lot of fun. I found it hard to pair a jacket with this dress, maybe a blazer but I didn’t want the look to give off the vibe of office attire. I tend to wear this scarf with everything, so when in doubt I used it as a shawl. Being honest, I was very comfortable (and warm) which made it an A+ in my book.
