Tuesday Shoesday #109

Happy Tuesday all.  I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend.  We spent our weekend installing beadboard in our living room, and I am so excited about how it looks.  I'll be sharing some home updates soon!

Today's Tuesday Shoesday is all about animal prints.  Animal prints are perfect any time of year, but especially for transitioning from summer to fall.   So whether it is leopard or zebra, pumps or flats, I highly recommend picking up some animal prints!

Have a great day!

Fashion + Fitness Friday

Happy Friday everyone!  And it is a long weekend, which makes it double wonderful.  Who has big weekend plans?  My family is coming to town, and I am putting them to work on home improvement projects. 

Today's Fashion + Fitness features my second outfit from Fabletics.  I was quite concerned I might not ever receive it.  I accidentally shipped it to our old house (which is across the street from our new house), but the mailbox has a key so I couldn't get it.  I was afraid that our evil old landlord was holding it hostage, but he finally brought it over.  Crisis averted. 

I am loving these Fabletic outfits.  The pants are so cute, and I love the tee.  It is a little on the thin side, but I don't really want a thick tshirt when I work out anyway. 

Fabletics Flourish Outfit: Forward Tee, Salar Capris & Headband

You can get your first Fabletics for $25.  Sign up here.  

Have a great day and weekend!

Bold and Bright

This post should really be called "Bold, Bright and Doggy Photo Bombs" but I thought that was a little long.  However the title is true - this is a bold, bright outfit and there are multiple doggy photo bombs.  I purposely didn't crop these so they would remain.  What can I say, I think they are cute! 

If you have been reading for any length of time, then you know I love to mix prints.  And this combination was natural.  I think the floral pattern in the top really plays nicely with the striped skirt.  

Shirt: J. Crew Factory; Skirt: Old Navy (similar); Shoes: J. Crew (similar)

One quick off topic note- you can now subscribe to get my posts by email.  I have been meaning to do that for a while, but kept forgetting.  But it is there now.

Have a great Thursday!

In The Kitchen

Obviously one of my greatest passions is fashion.  I think that goes without saying.  But today I am sharing another one of my passions with you- cooking.  I come from a family of good cooks.  My mom and grandmother are both amazing cooks.  My dad is also quite a whiz in the kitchen.

Now, I am by no means a food blogger.  I tend to think food bloggers do things like make up their own recipes or travel to cool places and write about the restaurants.  I make things I see on Pinterest.

One of my 101 Things Before 30 is to try 50 new recipes (#72).  I actually spend a crazy amount of time looking at recipes on Pinterest.  My Pinterest boards consist of fashion boards, recipe boards and then a few other random things.  My mom sends me tons of recipes (along with funny dog pins) and I send them to her when I have made something good.  I print recipes off by the handfuls.  I am always looking for new recipes.

So today, I am sharing with you some of my favorites that I have made recently.

Chicken & Broccoli
Honey Soy Chicken

Baked Onion Rings
Zucchini, Tomato & Squash Gratin

Cheesy Zucchini Rice
Smothered Pork Chops

So who has recipes they want to share with me?

Tuesday Shoesday Week #108

Happy Tuesday all!  Aren't you glad it isn't Monday?  I know I am.  

It is time for another Tuesday Shoesday!  Today we are talking about fabulous flats.  No matter if you go back and forth from flats to heels, or stick to flats as your shoe staple, there are so many cute flats now with amazing details!  Stripes, prints, cut outs, embellishments… 

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 

How amazing are these?  I love the polka dot ones… actually I love them all! 

Have a great day!

Back to Basics

Monday, Monday… What can I say?  I hope you all had a good weekend.  I spent a lot of time painting.  Weekends are for home improvement.  

I don't know about you, but I am always on the hunt for the perfect basics.  An amazing tee is a hard to thing to come by.  But today I am introducing you to a great brand with amazing basic tees.  

ModBod is an apparel brand with fantastic layering pieces, including this tee and tank.  They have a variety of basics in a range of colors.  

There are so many things that make these tops great.  The fit is superb (not too tight, not too loose), the quality is excellent, they are soft, PLUS they are long!  It makes me crazy when tees are too short.  But not these!  

Shirt: ℅ ModBod; Skirt: Banana Republic (similar); Shoes: Vince (similar)

Shirt: ℅ ModBod; Skirt: J. Crew Factory (similar); Shoes: Target (similar)
So I highly recommend you check ModBod out for your basics!

Have a great day!

Fashion + Fitness Friday

Happy Friday friends!  We have almost made it to another weekend!

Today is a combo post: Fashion + Fitness and Budget Fashionista.  Just because you are on a budget doesn't mean you can't have cute workout clothes!  Now, I will say that like all things I find that my cheaper work out clothes do wear out quicker.  I wear them a lot and they get washed A LOT.  

Here are some fashionable fitness picks

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 

Awesome news for my budget conscious friends (or anyone who loves cute workout clothes) - Yogasmoga is having a sale with 50% off select styles (#5 & #6 are both Yogasmoga on sale)!  I recently wore their Tickle Me Tank here, and some of the colors are on sale.  I am planning on getting another one, along with a pair of crop pants and maybe a sports bra… I really just want it all!  And did I mention you earn Smogi bucks when you shop (btw this isn't sponsored, I am just really excited).

Have a great day and a wonderful weekend!
