Fitting Room Fun

I found some time last week to hit Target sans kids so I thought it would be best to take advantage of the opportunity to actually get to try on some clothes in the dressing rooms.

I found some cute things…

Thought I’d go ahead and get that one out of the way…I was actually going back and forth on sharing this one here…but hey, if this blog is going to be honest and raw…then I have to let go of some insecurities, right?

I tried on this bikini and I actually really liked it. The bottom seemed kind of baggy, but I felt if I went down a size, it wouldn’t give the coverage I like on the backside {thank you, Tanner & Breckin}. I’m still in the midst of getting in bikini shape for summer. I didn’t get this, but maybe if it’s still in stock a month from now, I’ll try it on again.

I loved the color of these shorts {could not find link online, but check your local store}. And the length was just right – flattering because it didn’t show too much upper thigh. I’ll feel like I can bend over safely when chasing my little one at the play parks and such.

I also went ahead and bought them in jean blue…

That top is also great…I mentioned it in this post last week. It goes great with leggings, I had been looking for a light, layering sweater to pair with leggings and skinnies.

Lastly, I loved this bright blue maxi skirt. It is longer in the back than the front.

I am so in the mood for spring weather so I can start rocking these things!

Friday: Week’s Recap

Happy Friday, y’all! This week has been interesting.

I started out Monday by quitting my “buffer” job because after analyzing the daycare vs. take home costs, it just didn’t make sense to bother with the job. I still have my business license and insurance for my cleaning business, A Modern Cinderella, so I figured I could keep the kids out of daycare starting next week if I didn’t find a job and just do cleanings instead of the 8 to 5 grind. {If any of y’all in the Charleston area are looking for a housecleaner – I’m your gal!}

On Tuesday, I had an interview with a company based in Dubai that went really well. I had the 2nd interview on Wednesday and landed the job! That was quick, right? I start sometime between February 15th and March 1st. It’s a nice downtown office by the aquarium and I basically get to run my own show there as the Office Manager/Logistics Coordinator.

Other than that, I’ve been spending my “time off” doing a lot of the following {if you follow me on Instagram, these might not be new to you!}:

Walking my girl, Tundra. {Isn’t this a nice place I can walk to from my house? So serene.}

 

And by the way, totally enjoying the Roxy Outdoor Fitness Collection items I was sent to try out via Skinny Mom. How awesome are these pants? Such breathable and comfy fabric for all workouts – outdoor and indoor alike. In LURVE with the color.

Getting a lot of time playing with these two handsome little men.
And I’ve also been cleaning up la casa a lot and trying to get some of those lingering household projects out of the way. And of course hitting the gym…and I also started Insanity again on Monday…gettin’ ready for bikini weather!
Speaking of bikini weather, I’ve been pinning a lot of cute summer-weather outfits on my Fashion & Style Pinboard on Pinterest…and this week, this get-up really piqued my interest:

This outfit has everything – sexy bare legs while keeping it classy up top, cute sandal heels, a colorful necklace and even a pop of the Pantone Color of the Year – Emerald. It’s comfy, yet not too casual. This could easily go from day to night. Here are some items I found that can help you recreate this look:
dENiZENĀ® from the Levi'sĀ® brand Dakota Short  - Assorted Colors
{Shorts – Target}
{Tank – Piperlime}
{Blazer – Forever 21}
Princess Vera Wang Tri-Tone Arrowhead and Fringe Bib Necklace
{Necklace – Kohls}
{Michael Kors Heels – Zappos}
