Lavender Bomber + Metallic Loafers

Thank you for all the kind words and support on my last post. I really appreciate all the love and support. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

So it's really no secret that I LOVE easy throw-on outfits (hence my recent post). This outfit is no exception. I tend to live in leggings and t-shirts lately (THIS t-shirt is my new obsession, I have in three colors - it's a MUST have), but that can get so boring after a while. I love that cute bomber jackets and fun shoes/accessories can make a simple outfit a little more interesting. As we transition into warmer weather, light jackets like this are a perfect item to have in your wardrobe. Lightweight bomber jackets like this come in tons of cute colors and styles lately. Bonus, they're such an easy piece to throw on over a basic tee.

Now for these shoes - if you don't have a pair of metallic loafers (or any loafers for that matter), you're missing out. I am LOVING wearing comfy slide on shoes (like THESE super cute ones) with jeans or leggings - they're just easy and cute! Shout out to Gucci for starting this fun trend. I especially love the metallic ones, though, because they just take things up a notch. I have both a silver and gold pair of metallic loafers and its so fun to pair simple jeans and a tee and let the shoes stand out. What do you guys think of the trend? Are you on board?

Lastly, I've been wanting to try some Charlotte Tilbury makeup because I've heard such great things. I caved and bought the magic foundation, setting powder, and magic cream. The gal at the counter tested all of this on my face and when I saw some friends after they raved about how great my makeup looked. So I'm fairly convinced the purchases were worth it. I am nervous about the magic cream though. I just hope it delivers and makes a difference in my skin with the price tag. Has anyone tried it? I'd love to know what you think!

Athleisure Moto Jacket

It is getting COLD. Holy cow. We have had some pretty chilly days lately. When it gets that cold, I really just prefer to hibernate and sometimes lack outfit creativity. Thank goodness for the athleisure trend, right? When I can get away with minimal effort looks during the winter, I'm all about it. 

I've mentioned these leggings before - they are a must have. They have that faux leather vibe, are high waisted and are so flattering and versatile. And to my ostomy friends - these are heaven and keep everything where it needs to be. Adding a super soft basic white tee (size up for a more relaxed look), a warm jacket that doubles with style and a fun sneaker makes a super simple outfit a little less boring! I love this jacket from Crane & Lion - it's warm, but not overwhelming, making it perfect for chilly days that don't require a bulky coat. Plus, they styling has a moto-vibe and the sleek fabric has that faux leather look as well. Oh, and the hat is necessary when you're on about day 6 of dry shampoo, if ya know what I mean. 

These sneakers were a gift and I absolutely love them. I had been wanting red sneakers, but to receive them customized with my blog name on the back was pretty cool. Very thoughtful, in my opinion, and it doesn't take a ton of extra time. Definitely a good gift idea for a sneaker lover you might have on your list!

WHY I LOVE IT: Nothing better than throwing on a comfy sweatshirt after a workout class. This one is versatile and can be worn with anything. Plus, a fun statement makes it just that much cooler.


WHY I LOVE IT: Comfy sweatpants for after class or lounging are a must. These are super cute and say "Nama'Sleep" on the side. I know expensive sweatpants seems silly, but I recently caved and bought a pair on the pricer pair and I'm so glad I did. Even though they're baggy, fit and style is still important. Plus they can easily be styled and look cool for a day of errands or running around. 


WHY I LOVE IT: Throw your necessities or secret things in this pouch and either throw in your gym bag or carry on its own. How cute is the graphic and design? As a fun gift, you could stuff this cute little pouch with fun goodies that the recipient loves (candy, gift cards, lipgloss, etc.)


WHY I LOVE IT: Graphic tanks are so cool right now. There are so many fun graphics and phrases - so fun for a workout outfit. I love the message of this one and the tiny hits of shiny gold - instant cool factor. Tip: Spiritual Gangster (brand of this tank) tends to fit on the tighter side. For a looser/more baggy fit, size up (sometimes I even go for a large when I want an extra baggy fit).
