A Work Out Update & Marika Capris

Marika Work Out LeggingsI have been going to bootcamp for a little over 3 months now, and I absolutely love it. My trainer pushes me to work hard, my classmates give me the motivation to show up, and I love that my work out is done by 6:30AM and I don’t have to think about it again after. Well, except for the next day when I’m sore in muscles I didn’t even know existed…lol! Yes, there are mornings that I have to literally drag myself out of bed at 5AM, and there are even mornings where I don’t make it (I blame Netflix), but overall morning exercise is what works for me. I would highly recommend signing up for a morning bootcamp if you are one of those people who doesn’t have that natural motivation to get up and go to the gym after work.

It’s hot here in Texas, even at 5:30 in the morning, so I normally wear shorts and a baggy tank top at bootcamp, but it’s September already so I know it’s going to start getting chillier soon. Once that chilly weather sets in, I like to wear capris or work out leggings when I run or work out outside. That’s why when Marika asked me to review a pair of their slimming capri’s, I got so excited. I have actually purchased Marika work out capris in the past at TJ Maxx and I love them. They are comfortable and last for a long time. There are a bunch of different varieties, but these specific capris have a higher waist, which I like because they don’t slip down when I run. Marika is offering 30% off to all of you readers from now until September 30 using code MM30, so hurry up and get shopping!

Someone Take Me To The Beach

Turquoise romper with cognac clutch

Hi Lovelies!

Oh my goodness was this weekend a beautiful one! Wes and I spent some much needed time relaxing in our new backyard. We laid in the sun, weeded, and had every single meal at our patio table. It was glorious! The rest of the time was spent going through boxes and working on little projects around the house. We are LOVING the new house! Every day I fall in love with it more and more, what a good sign:) I am so excited that we can do anything and everything we want to do and that we will never have to move if we don’t want to! This will be our little home to start a family in some day (not too soon though, lol).

Shop Rompers:

This outfit makes me want to go to the beach, or the pool….really I would take any body of water! I will for sure be taking this one up to the lake this summer, and probably to Nicolle’s pool while she lives down here! I bought this romper at the same time as this ruffle top and this cobalt dress I showed you a week or so back and it is so comfortable! I love that it’s stretchy and loose, but it has enough shape that it doesn’t make me look too frumpy. Rompers are slowly but surely becoming one of my favorite clothing items to buy! Right there behind the good old sundress!

What’s your favorite summer piece to wear to the beach/pool?

Almost Time For The Summertime Blues

Cobalt dress with turquoise beaded necklace

Hi Lovelies!

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Mine was pretty awesome. My cousin, Nicolle, is a traveling nurse who will be staying in Austin for the next 3 months. She arrived on Saturday! We took her for an inaugural Austin dinner at Hopdoddy, which she LOVED. Then we spent the rest of the night hanging out with a bottle of wine in the hot tub at her apartment complex. I am so excited that we get to live so close to each other even if it is only for a couple of months!

I wore this dress to Hopdoddy on Saturday night. It was perfect: casual, but still cute! I ordered it online a few weeks ago along with a few other summery items which I will be showing pretty soon! I probably should have ordered one size down, it is a little bit too large, but it definitely made it comfier. It also gives me a way to show off some of my cute bandeaus, like this white lace one! I am really considering buying the coral color of the same dress. It’s on sale for $30, and it’s a solid color which makes it perfect to accessorize with!

What’s your favorite recent purchase?

Sundress Weather

Coral dress with nude wedges

Hi Lovelies!

This outfit just makes me happy. It’s bright, it’s summery, and these earrings are awesome! I just love it. Now I can’t wait until I have  tan to go with my sundresses. It’s been super nice here so it’s on its way, but you know how it is…a slow process. This weekend doesn’t look too promising for my tan plan with all the cloudiness. Oh well, I guess I’ll have to wait for the next one.

Yeah, I’m pretty sure I am a walking advertisement for Charming Charlie sometimes. Guess that’s what happens when you work around the stuff all the time. You really can’t beat the prices though, this dress was like $25! You all know I can’t resist a good deal, but I am going to have to start resisting more often since we are saving to buy our own house. Yup, that’s right, a house! I am so excited that it’s finally going to happen, we just need to find the right one. Wish us luck!

How do you save your money when you get the urge to shop?

Part 2: A Sundress For Late Spring

Sundress with a fedora

Hi Lovelies!

Yesterday I showed you how to style that strappy sundress you have been wanting to wear on days when it’s a bit to chilly. Today, I am showing you a style for later on in the spring, or if you live in the south like me this weekJ I added a fedora because they are one of my absolute favorite summer accessories. I wore this baby every single day on my honeymoon in Jamaica last spring and it just looks fantastic with everything. A hat can really change the entire look of an outfit and bring a little fun to it.

You can always bring along that sweater from yesterday just in case it gets a little chilly at night, at the beach, or in the air conditioning. There you have it, one dress that you can wear almost all year:)

Do you try and wear your sundresses all year through?
