Dressing for A New Year

Dressing up is so much fun, but it rarely happens for me. If i am being honest, i have a closet full of beautiful things and i am almost always in a tee and yoga pants. Yes i am that girl. The white girl with two girls in tow and a starbucks cup in hand. It happens. On the off chance i am wearing real clothes though, i am dressed well and i feel great for it. Sooo with this new year i want to blog more about what i wear, how to dress, and why. Here it goes. 2015's first fashion like post. Dressing for The New Year.

This look is perfect for a day you don't feel like getting too fancy. It would be so comfy paired with a nice pair of denim or sparkly leggings. The blouse has wide sleeves which are surprisingly very flattering. The necklace adds a little sparkle and these adorable pumps have just enough texture to them.  Perfect for a dressy beginner or date night out.

Summer Favorites- Runnin Runnin

Since the Utah Summer Games are officially underway i figured now was a good time to introduce our favorite work out gear. I try to be a runner. I love running, it gives me a feeling of accomplishment and a visible goal to aim towards. I ran during both of my pregnancies to stay sane and in shape and have been trying to get back into it after having Emersyn. Saturday was my first big race of the year. I run with Courtney and we help keep each other going. It was only fitting that we ran the summer games 5k together. She seriously encouraged me through the entire thing and was so great! At one point near the end i thought to myself, why in the world do i think running is fun!? Well i don't, it is hard and it totally kicks my butt. But it is sooo worth it and the gold medal at the end of the race reminded me of that. I can't wait for the rest of the races we have lined up this summer and for our regular runs up the canyon with the girls. So anyways here is our favorite gear right now. Enjoy! Oh and I would love to hear what you are doing to get some exercise this summer?

Summer Favorites- Little Swimmers

Want to know what we are doing all summer long?! Swimming. Leighton started swim lessons today and of course she loved it! There were a lot of old women, think grey hair can barely lift their water weights old, in the water. When it was time to leave i grabbed her, wrapped her in a towel and headed for the locker room. As dramatically as she could Leighton reached longingly towards the pool and yelled "Grandma help me!" Obviously my daughter has a thing for grandmas lately. Good thing she gets to see all her new grandma swimmers twice a week.

Alright, here are some of our swimming faves so far this summer. What swimming gear are you loving?

Old Navy- heart swim suit, turquoise swim suits, and hats. Target- navy and red swim suits, swim floaty, and swim diaper. Amazon- swim toys. 

Don't worry i didn't forget the giveaway. Actually i am so excited to announce who won. Thank you so much to everyone who entered! The winner is...
