Denim & Cream Frills

Jeans: GoJane // Heels: DSW // Top: Target // Bag: Michael Kors // Necklace: Cherrypick // Sunnies: Target

I can't believe that Easter is this weekend. I feel like the weather has been so crazy we forget the actual dates, I think it is supposed to get more springy around here this week (fingers crossed) and hopefully Easter will be nice, there is nothing better than being able to wear a spring dress on Easter and not freeze! I got this sweater on vacation at Target, because clearly even when I am on vacation I go to Target...Anywhooo, I love how spring it is, and I love even more how much it looks like other sweaters I have seen from other companies, but it was oh so much less! ($25) Always a win! Also, can we talk about how fast my tan faded, while yes I am still more tan than 50% of the people in Boston, Hubs and I lost our tans in record time! It is the saddest thing! Also how light and "long" my hair got!! My hair always gets so light in the sun, but especially this trip, I don't mind it but I keep catching my hair in different lights and angles and am in awe at how light and how fast it got back to "long" vs. a long bob like it was a few short months ago!

For Women by Women // Oiselle

Top, Tights & Sports Bra : Oiselle c/o // Sneakers: Puma ($70)

Oiselle is one of my favorite types of brands, for women by women. The idea of women building product for other women, is so amazing. The only people who really know what women want, are well, women. Instead of shooting each other down, I have tons of love for companies that are all about building women up. Oiselle is known for using real women athletes in their runway shows, and promoting strong, muscular and healthy women.  I have always been an huge advocate of women and all things women's rights. I consider myself a modern day Rosie the Riveter. Did you know one of the sports I played is ice hockey? I played on the "boy's" team in high school & I got a lot of flack for it, but at the end of the day it taught me most of my life lessons...all in 2 very long years. 

1. What does not kill you makes you stronger
2. Stand up for what you believe is right, even if you are standing alone
3. Don't ever let anyone tell you that you can't
4. Who run the world?..GIRLS! 

Kidding about that last one, I stole from my girl Beyonce, but seriously though. I would say sports and always being happy with who I am have got me to where I am today, and to be honest I am really happy with who I have become, not to toot my own horn (Toot, Toot!) When you look back, you realize that everything that happens, happens for a reason, and each experience and every trial and tribulation make you who you are, and while I still want to say some nasty things and throw rotten eggs at those people who made my life oh so frustrating, I will digress and say thank you. Thank you for helping me grow into the kick ass person I am today. (JERKS!)

On another note, have any of you thought of running a marathon or half marathon? My "real" job is in the athletic footwear industry and all we do is talk about running. I am thinking of running a half at the end of this summer, and well I have run a lot in my life time, never a half marathon. That is 13.2 long miles. I think I am going to go for it, I don't have much else going on this summer and I think it will be a great way to stay in shape and stay active when I don't want to be in a studio/gym when the weather is nice. I do think if you are thinking of running a half, or a full marathon or even a 5k you need to really be committed. Do any of you athletes who are so used to running being a punishment have any suggestions for me?! 

Happy Friday all! Hope you learned a little bit more about me today, if you have not noticed, I am very honest and always speak my mind..flaw or fabulous? You choose ;)

Spring Brights

Sweater: Ann Taylor(old) // Jeans: Forever 21 // Shoes: Lord & Taylor (similar) // Purse: Michael Kors // Sunglasses: Karen Walker via Ditto // Necklace: Rocksbox // Bracelets: Kate Spade & JCrew

I decided on Tuesday, if the weather was not going to cooperate, I was just going to make spring happen anyways. Next weeks weather is starting to look a bit better, maybe some 50 degree days which is huge! LOL! I just want warm weather and to start my garden! BOO! I actually got a lot of comments about my bright pink sweater for a few reasons. First off, bright colors always make people cheery and happier, secondly, I don't really wear pink, and I often say how much I don't like it, so people made sure to make a point I was wearing pink. I have like a thing with pink, I am very particular about shades of pink, it just has to be the right shade, or pink can be very weird, and oh so wrong? Maybe it's just an old tomboy feeling I have against pink, but I think sometimes like red rosey tones of pink are just not for me and so blah? Does anyone else feel that way? Or am I just holding a grudge against pink? Do you think I said pink enough times in one paragraph? =)

Serious Tomboy

Sweatshirt: Forever 21 // Jeans: JCrew // Backpack: Forever 21 // Sneakers: Puma // Sunglasses: Karen Walker via Ditto Endless Program

This outfit makes me want to snuggle. Really though, I wanted to post an outfit for you all that is me super causal and comfortable. This is what I look like if I don't know what to wear, or if I want to be overly comfortable and well the fact that I can wear stuff like this to work makes it so much better. Also I can stay very warm in this outfit and 90% of the time my office is an icebox, I think they think we will get more work done if we are cold because we want need to keep moving to keep warm! If it were up to me, I may wear this every day in the winter, these jeans were one of the best purchases I ever made. Have you ever noticed sometimes your bet purchases are not your dressiest pieces, they are your most comfortable!? I am obsessed with this look because it gives you a real look into my style and me, also I am overly obsessed with this backpack, so much so I can not stop wearing it!

Distressed Denim & Shades of Pink

Denim: Go Jane c/o // Shirt: Old Navy (on sale $15) // Jacket: Dorthy Perkins c/o // Clutch: Dorthy Perkins c/o // Shoes: JCPenny // Necklace: Forever 21

Tuesday, while I am here wishing it was Friday, again, it is only Tuesday. At least I have these shades of pink to keep my spirits up, even though its FREAKING cold out still. Like when I am saying cold, I mean like low 30's and windy as heck, not like ohhh its 60 degrees and can I borrow your jacket I'm kinda chilly. Like hold crap my hands may fall off it's so dang cold. I am going to be planting my seedlings soon, how are they supposed to survive in this nonsense! Mind you my garden beds are covered in 2+ feel of snow still, sooo I really don't have too much to worry about right now, because no seedlings will be going into those beds any time soon. Anywho...

As you all have gotten older have you questions when stuff is "Ok", and when you may just be a little to old for it? I have always said that I would never feel that way, but I think my time has come, and I am starting to feel old. Not that I couldn't pull stuff off, because lets be honest I still get questioned at the liquor store that my ID may be fake, but I am starting to not be able to wear my old low waist jeans like I used to, I know mid rise and high rise is in right now, but I honestly don't think I could wear the low waist jeans even if I wanted. I just have to much going on to worry if my butt crack is hanging out, these Go Jane jeans I got are proper high waist  and when I first saw them I was like oh man this zipper is long, but once I put them on, I kind of like felt secure and curvy. Not to mention they are super inexpensive, but you wouldn't know by the quality. Side note, why is waisted not a word..like come on all I wan to do is use it?? P.S. Have you noticed spelling and grammar are not my strongest subject...I'm ok with it....YOLO ;)
