Fall fashion is coming at us fast, and furious! I live in Texas, and it still feels like summer! The mornings have been a little cooler, but it’s still hot! Tons of bloggers have posted amazing fall fashion, but I am not all the way there yet. I previewed this dress on Instagram. If you don’t have an Instagram account you are missing out! I post tons of content on Instagram.

Sooooo, I am LOVING this sweater dress. I have a feeling that I will be living in sweater dresses when the weather permits. I added my favorite pair of heels, and tote…..instant show stopper! What are a few of your favorite fall pieces?

I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! Happy Monday! So, I am back in Black Sheep Legging’s! If you haven’t visited their website, WHY? The prices, and variety are AMAZE! I decided to pair this particular pair with a long black hi-low tee, and a shorter gray tee. I see myself in the very near future paring these leggings with a dark maroon sweater. Be creative when styling pieces. No one has to like what you are wearing but you!

Weekly Workout

[optinlocker][/optinlocker]

Good Morning! 

I hope everyone had a fantastic Monday! Lets get things started with our weekly workout!

 I apologize for being MIA from posting weekly workouts for a little bit. I figured I have more than enough posted to keep you all busy. Time change is coming fast and furious. During this time people often do less due to the shift in daylight. PREPARE NOW! In the past I have gained the vast majority of my weight during this time period. Be very careful. Colder weather often brings about cravings for comfort foods. Don’t let this sabotage your progress! Have a game plan now! I plan to have no processed junk in my home and plan to make tons of hearty healthy soups. 

I have been keeping myself busy with Crossfit, and cardio. When my body is tired I take a full and complete break. A few years back I remember working out EVERY single day. This rotation became old quick. Be sure to listen to your body and rest when needed! 

OKAY! Lets set Tuesday off with this little workout! 

Repeat X 3 

10 Push-Ups 

20 Sit-Ups 

25 Squats 

20 Lunges (10 each leg) 

60 Jumping Jacks

I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! I am so excited to talk about 1 of many looks in collaboration with Black Sheep Legging!!! Black Sheep Legging is a 100% Canadian owned company with unparalleled customer service! The selection of leggings, clothing and accessories offered by Black Sheep Legging is AMAZE!

Ya’ll, the LEGGINGS are seriously amazing! So comfortable, light and forgiving. I look for a legging that will compliment my body, and lets be honest not all leggings are created the same. Leggings can be styled the same way as any other pant, or skirt. You’re imagination is the only limitation.The price point is to die for! I can’t wait to style my leggings with other staple pieces in my wardrobe! Leggings are perfect for fall, and look great with a layered look.

Check out their website, and TREAT YO SELF!

All selection’s were chosen by me, and represent my honest opinion.

A good friend asked me to describe my style today. I have never really thought about putting my style into a specific category. I just wear what I love!  I will say that I love grey’s, nudes and taupes! I hope everyone is having a fantastic week!

I still remember where and what I was doing in this day! We were working at the main gate at Randolph AFB (I was in the Air Force at the time) and security was heightened to a level I have never seen. My heart was broken when I heard what happened. May the brave live on in our hearts forever! 

It was an extreme honor to visit the memorial site with my family. Absolutely breath taking!

I will never forget this day in which so many lives were lost and sacrificed! 

GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Good Morning! I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend, and a happy Tuesday! This week is a short week, but I feel like I need an extra day to get ahead. Don’t get me wrong, I love the weekend, but sometimes I need all five days.

I love Maxi dresses! It’s super easy to dress them up or down. I opted to pair this look with my favorite mules, which are so comfy. I have the black pair as well, but they are difficult to wear. I like neutrals a little more than I like blacks. Maxi dress are awesome for the summer, but I am ready for cooler weather. Me and 100 degree weather don’t get along…lol! Anyway, enjoy the rest of your week!

Happy Labor Day! I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday weekend!

I am so excited about my collaboration with Gwen from Stella and Dot! Gwen is amazing! I love so many pieces from the Stella and Dot line that its hard to choose!

Accessories are a big part of every outfit I put together. An outfit without accessories is blah……Accessories add an extra pop to any outfit. I love adding gold jewelry to a crisp white tee! You will never believe how much I paid for my tee! A total steal! My lip-stain is to die for! It  literally lasted all day! 

Anyway, for the entire month of September Lesley and Eve will have a direct link to a Stella and Dot PARTY!!! The link will be in our side bar on the home page! I’m excited, and look forward to adding a few more pieces to my collection. As we move through September, I will post additional suggestions! Fun right!

Have a safe and wonderful Labor DAY! 

Weekly Workout

 

Happy Wednesday! 

I hope everyone is having a fantastic week! Are you ready for our second weekly workout! The workouts at Crossfit have been brutal over the last few weeks. I don’t like to have a hard time with anything. LOL! It’s important to me to feel like I am okay after a workout. Not like I want to lay down on the floor. Quick recovery is important to me. 

The heat doesn’t make things any easier. I actually just purchased a new lululemon (click lululemon for deets) water bottle that I love!!! This baby helps to keep me hydrated, which is so important! I have personally found that it is much easier to workout in crops rather than  shorts in the summer Zella has a few of my favorites (click here, and here). 

So, I will keep my chattering short today!

I actually did this little workout last night at an easy pace….

Repeat X 2 

40 Sit-ups 

20 Calf Raises 

40 Jumping Jacks 

20 squats
