Matching Top +Skirt
I own very few matching sets, but this one is one of the most COMFORTABLE outfits EVER! I usually don’t go for matchy, matchy pieces but I love the design of this outfit. This two piece outfit is extremely versatile! Throw on a blazer to quickly change the look! It’s always nice to have a classic heel that never goes out of style.

Blush Tunic + Destroyed Boyfriend Jeans
Hi Everyone! I hope everyone is having a wonderful week! I have been living and loving boyfriend jeans lately! To be perfectly honest, I have not always been a fan of jeans. I wasn’t a fan, because of my weight. Jeans were always hard to find for my body type. As I have lost weight, I don’t have nearly as many problems! I am still a big thigh girl, but not a 260 pound big thigh girl. I have dropped about 8 pounds over the last few weeks, I can’t wait to share how I dropped the weight!
So, about this Tunic! It’s a #nsale find. I love this tunic. It can be paired with so many things. This tunic is a classic, and won’t go out of style! My booties, I LOVE! They are actually comfortable, and were a great find! I paired my look with a handbag, and a clutch. Clutches are all the crave. I am happy that I have a few in my collection. A clutch can transform any outfit!!!

Lush Shift Dress + Peep Toe Booties
I hope everyone had a safe, and wonderful weekend!
Over the last year, I have changed my look dramatically. I look like a completely different person to many of my friends. I have always loved fashion and style. My style has evolved. When I was heavy, I still loved fashion. I feel that anyone can rock fashion at any body type. We have to be comfortable in the skin that we are in. I make it my mission to include outfits, shoes and accessories on my blog that can be enjoyed by EVERYONE. Some aspect of my outfit can be enjoyed by ANY body type!
I am in love with this entire outfit! Okay, so I may say that a lot, but I really love this outfit! These booties are EVERYTHING! I can’t wait to pair these with jeans and crops in the fall. My booties were an accidental find, and this is my first time wearing them. I know they will be my go to bootie. I wear booties all year! My dress was a #nsale find.

I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! Are you ready for our first weekly workout? Did everyone survive the weekend with healthy eating? If not start planning how to be successful in the future. We have to stop bad habits.
I spent a good amount of time watching the CrossFit Games over the weekend. I was amazed by the athletic abilities of all athletes involved. A tremendous amount training goes into preparing for the Games. I commend everyone who participated. The amount of commitment is unbelievable!
Alright! Lets start our Monday off right, and MOVE!

White Tank + Black Skirt
Hi Everyone! I hope everyone is having a fantastic week! The end of the week is near! I love this little outfit! I adore the fact that the top is long enough to be tucked in or left out. I figured I would throw a little black skirt into the mix! This skirt can be dressed up, or dressed down. I’m excited to dress this skirt down in a future POST! This little skirt was on sale a Macy’s. Pieces like this are staples to any wardrobe.
The key to any wardrobe is having pieces that you can wear over, and over. Having to buy new clothing all the time isn’t cost effective at all. We should add to our wardrobe instead of rebuilding it season after season. A few pieces that are a must in my wardrobe are a black handbag, black heels, white top or t-shirt, and a little black skirt or dress.

Apple Watch Fitness Review
I hope everyone is having a fantastic Tuesday!
I have to admit I am loving all of the additional features of my Apple Watch! If you are a gadget person you will love all of the additional features the Apple Watch offer. So my Apple Watch and I are finally on the same page. I have finally figured out that I need to consistently move during workouts to meet the guidelines categorized as actual “exercise”. Stoping and starting slows down meeting the exercise goal. In many different workout scenario’s we often speed up, and slow down to a level that is comfortable to our body. I catch myself slowing down all the time. My Apple Watch has helped to keep me focused! There have been many instances in which I didn’t receive minute for minute activity points. My output was slower at different times during my workout. My heart rate didn’t register at a rate sufficient enough to account for exercise. When this happened I became extremely aware of my efforts while exercising. I want every amount of exercise that I do to COUNT!
Lately, I have met my daily move goals well into 1200 calories per day burned. I am constantly on the move. I think it is fair to say that I am more than happy with my purchase. Our bodies are unique. It’s impossible for any device to give a 100% accurate account of the actual amount of calories we burn. The Apple Watch is effective in giving a very close estimate. If I burn 400 calories for the day, (not as active) I know that my caloric intake should be between 1400-1600 calories for that day.
The Apple Watch is a good tool to use if you are stuck, at a plateau, or just all over the place and need guidance. Fitness seems to be the first thing people drop when it comes to finances. But if our bodies aren’t healthy physically, how can we do much of anything else? Invest in yourself! That is the best gift that you can ever give to YOURSELF!

White Tunic + Boyfriend Destroyed Denim
I hope everyone is having a fantastic Tuesday! Having the expectation to walk around dressed to the nine’s isn’t always realistic. Sometimes I want to throw on a pair of boyfriend jeans, and comfy shoes and be on my way. My outfit was comfortable and fashionable. I bought my tote at Nordstrom, and it is hands down the best purchase ever! I can throw everything in this tote! LOVE IT! They also carry this exact tote at American Eagle!

Have an AMAZING day!
I hope everyone had a fab Monday! Hopefully everyone is ready for our second weekly workout of the week!
My Monday was pretty painful, and I am SORE from my workout yesterday. I spent 30 minutes stretching, and just thinking this morning. Thinking without interruptions is extremely important to me. Some of my best idea’s have derived from uninterrupted thinking. I am working on a few awesome projects for Lesley and Eve, and I cannot wait to share!
Always feel free to comment with any questions that you may have!
