Zara

Hello Hello!!  Now I know some of you guys are like how did you not know about Zara.  Well to answer that question, I have lived in places that did not have a Zara.  And yes that is a very sad day that I never was able to shop there prior to my trip to the Twin Cities.

So any ways recently I went to the Twin Cities and there is a very large Zara in the Mall of America.  This store is amazing there is something in this store for everyone.  I do not shop at malls very often so I wasn’t buying anything but the one place I wanted to stop before we left was Zara.  I just want to say the minute I walked in I saw so many things I wanted to try on.  I was talking through the store just picking up things left and right to try on.

I bought a few things – I talked about the first one already, this green dress.

Second – I bought this coat

This coat is just a really soft casual coat.  It is just a big slouch coat that goes down to mid-thigh.  The length I thought would be weird but actually when worn with tight clothes it looks really good.  Like here were I paired it with skinny jeans and a tight top.  I have also worn this to work when I wear a work dress.

Lastly I bought this amazing all over lace bell sleeved top.

I absolutely love all over lace tops, I think they are so feminine and romantic and lately these types of shirts have been my speed.  I have been looking to try bell sleeves for a while and this shirt kind of was just amazing when I tried it on.  I didn’t think I would like the color but I actually do.  The V-neck on this shirt is amazing, it is cut perfectly.  The V-neck is cut narrow and deep which is great because it shows off your cleavage without being too much.

Emerald Dress

Hello Hello!!  A few weeks ago I meet up with one of my best friends and I actually went to a mall for the first time in forever.  (I hate malls, I think they are overly crowded).  Anyways while we were walking around I didn’t really see anything I liked until we got to the last store and then I wanted to buy everything.  What was the last store?  Zara!  I am going to share my thoughts on Zara in a later post but I wanted to rave about one specific thing I bought.

Ahh I love shift dresses, they are so lose and free to be styled however you want.  This shift dress caught my eye right when I walked in the door.  The ruffled sleeves are super cute.  Combined with the v-neck of this dress.  I just want to say the cut of the v-neck is perfect, its low but does not show too much cleavage.  Actually the bright red color of this dress caught my attention but it was not in my size.  I hesitated with the green because its not usually my color but my friend convinced me to try it on anyways.

I am so happy I did, this dress fit me perfectly and at that point I could not leave the store without it.  And the green color is amazing, since I have blue eyes I usually avoid that color but I really liked how this dress looked.

Reebok Workout Pants

Hello Hello!!  I just wanted to take a minute and rave about my favorite workout pants.  It is not even a specific pair, it is just Reebok workout pants in general.  In my opinion they are the best.  I workout everyday, I do some cardio, some circuit, and I love Barre classes.  So I do a little bit of everything in a given week of working out.

I absolutely love my Reebok workout pants, I must own like 6 pairs of them.  If I get a coupon code I am very likely to use it because I love them and I will use them all the time.

Why do I love them?  First, they are not see through, if you are a girl you know what I am talking about.  Whenever I am working out and doing squats it is my top concern if you can see through the workout pants.  Second, the cut of the pants, most of the pants that I buy are high-waisted.  I love this, I never have to worry about keeping them up.   Next, they are all speedwick so they move the sweat away from your body.  Lastly, the style of these pants are great, they are unique and cool so I love to wear them.

So my favorite pair are the ones on the right, Mest Moves Tights, they are no longer available but I love them so much I bought two last year.  The Middle purple ones I really like the style and mesh inserts on these, also bought these last year and they are not available any more.  The ones on the left are new and so amazing I am thinking about buying a second pair.  These Lux Tights are so amazing, they are so soft and so comfortable I would love to wear them all the time.  I highly recommend these pants or literally almost any workout pants by Reebok.

To help you figure out what size, they do tend to run large.  I typically wear a size small, 4 in pants (US) or my Levi jean size is 26.  But in Reebok workout pants I buy x-smalls and have never had to send any back.

Stevie Nicks Concert

Hello Hello!!  So exciting, I went and saw the legendary Stevie Nicks in concert!!  Seeing her in concert was on my bucket list of concerts I want to go to, as well as Fleetwood Mac.  (If you do not know who that is please look her up she is amazing)

So what do you wear to a Stevie Nicks concert?  She is the queen of boho chic.  Obviously you wear something lace!

Actually to be honest I forgot to take a picture, was probably too excited to leave and get to the concert, but I actually wore a pair of booties.  I know booties in August, but I saw her in Minnesota and no one told the Twin Cities it was summer out.  So the booties actually went with the boho chic vibe I was going for.

By the way the concert was amazing, I highly suggest going to see her.

Online Shopping: Amazon

Hello hello!!!  I wanted to give some advice for shopping on Amazon today.  Now if you have read some of my other blogs, you probably already know I love Amazon and I shop on there all the time. So I wanted to share some tricks that I use especially when shopping for designer/ higher end clothing/shoes.

So when I am looking on Amazon especially for clothing from a well known designer I typically will not buy right away.  I will add it to my wish list.  I suggest everyone use the wish list, so when you use the app it is easy to go to your wish list and watch the price.  If the price never moves then you know it’s probably not going to change too much but if you have an item that does fluctuate in price then I would wait for a good price.

This summer I am in love with heeled sandals.  I don’t know if it’s because I didn’t own any or because of something else.  Moral of this story is that I bought 3 pairs of heeled sandals this summer.  I was very hesitant to buy these.

These are black Dolce Vita heeled  sandals, now I was hesitant because the last pair I bought were kind of expensive.  Those were also a pair of Dolce Vita sandals but they are so comfortable that they made me look at another pair.  So I found these and regularly they are over $100. I put them on my wish list and sat on them.

Like a week later I was in my Amazon app and these shoes are $37.  My jaw dropped, I was like what?  So this was too good of a deal to pass up, so I bought them.  I am not upset about this, these shoes are great.  I have been wearing them frequently.  They are also so comfortable, I can wear them all day.

Week Night Quick Outfit Flip

Hello Hello!!! Now weeknights for everyone are hectic, and this week especially was very  hectic and busy.  I felt like I was running around the entire time and I had no time for my work out.  Well one day this week I was meeting my friend for a late dinner so I figured I could fit in a quick workout before heading to dinner.  But I had to do a quick flip from my sweaty gym clothes to a cute outfit.

I even took this picture post workout, hence the fact that my face is super red.  I did cardio this day so I was real gross.  Anyways how do you go from this to presentable for a dinner.  I decided to keep the outfit real simple, just skinny jeans and a v-neck noting too fancy.

IMG_20170816_185952_edited

I think the change went really well, there wasn’t a way to fully take care of the red checks but I think the outfit looked really chill and put together even when I was like 30 minutes post workout.  I did have a debate about the shoes right up until I left, and I actually changed into a pair of Toms flats.

So the key to a quick change was really just keeping it simple no frills just jeans and a T-shirt.  I also had the outfit picked out in my head prior to going to the gm otherwise I would have been super lazy.

Take your Saturday outfit to a night outfit

Hello hello!! Last Saturday was pretty chill my friends had a grill out and then we decided to go out.  It was kind of colder out so I decided to wear jeans.  My plan was to wear something chill to the cookout and then change before we went out.

I just felt like wearing leopard print, I hadn’t worn this shirt in awhile so it felt fun and free.  I paired it with some dark skinned jeans and my black Tom’s.  I tucked in the front of the shirt to highlight my waist, which is something that I usually do for loose tanks.  I brought a cardigan along because it was kind of colder.

(Please ignore my dogs butt she refused to move). So I actually thought I was going to change more when I was thinking about my outfit in my head.  I originally wanted to change my shirt but I was feeling lazy.  So when I got back to my place to do a quick change I decided to just put on some heeled booties.  I out on these black booties with the slit on the side, these aren’t my favorite boots but I thought they looked more summery then closed toe boots.

Let me know your thoughts.
