Monday Musings: Early Spring?

Happy Monday, y’all! Hope you had a great weekend with the Super Bowl and all. I didn’t particularly care either way who won the game this year…but I was definitely lovin’ the commercials – how about you? Oh, and I was so stoked to see Destiny’s Child make a surprise appearance during Beyonce’s halftime show – took me back down memory lane – singin’ in the car to “Say My Name” with my best girlfriends in high school…I loved that group. Though Beyonce has still done very well for herself since going solo.

In other news, I’m sure you all know that Punxsutawney Phil has predicted an early spring this year.


I don’t even remember the last time he didn’t see his shadow…I always automatically expect the extra six weeks of winter, or whatever the old wives’ tales says. But to be honest, with the beautifully warm winter weather we’ve been having here in Charleston, SC, I can’t say I’m too surprised. And all of this warm weather is getting me even more eager for spring and summer weather…and to pull out the warm-weather wardrobe. I also can’t help but look around online for new things to lounge around the pool and beach in. I actually stumbled upon the cutest cover up {totally my style}:

 Gah! It’s just too perfectly pretty and totally something I would wear. Something I’m GOING to wear…as I just finalized the purchase online a couple clicks of the mouse ago! Plus, doesn’t it look very similar to this one that I swooned over last summer?
I’m also due for a new bikini or two…I didn’t buy a new one last year. Hubby will balk at this because I have a whole dresser drawer full of them, but many are several years old, or just fit weird now {baby #2 definitely shifted some things around} so I think I’m going to finally clean out that drawer and hopefully add in something like this Roxy Free Rampage bikini:
It would go just “swimmingly” with the maxi dress, don’t you think?
Enjoy your week! xoxo

Winter Jackets

We got a little cold front here in Charleston this past weekend and it got me thinking how I need a new winter jacket. I already have a nice long white wool coat from Victoria’s Secret, but I’m definitely in the market for one not as long…and not as white. Here are some of the options I’m looking into…

I love the subtle leopard pattern on this one…

 I also just love a classic gray to go with anything and everything…

And I do always love plaid for outerwear…

I’ll decide on one soon and let you know! Hope it’s not too cold where you’re at! xoxo

Train Like An Angel

The Victoria Secret Fashion Show is fast-approaching, so you bet those little Angels are working their hardest to be in top model condition.

I got an email from Victoria’s Secret highlighting their VSX Collection. This collection is full of great workout wear that is cute, flattering and sure to make you want to get up and workout. I have a few VSX items from past collections and they are definitely quality.

Here are a few of my faves from the current collection that have made their way to my online shopping cart:


I have a larger bust-size, so maximum support during workouts is a must. This bra has all kinds of support, plus moisture-wicking fabric.


I’m lovin’ a crop workout pant lately…and these look to be a very flattering fit.

Check out the rest of the VSX Collection online at Victoria’s Secret!

Also, in spirit of getting runway-ready – VSX is offering workouts via their Facebook page. You should check it out and take on the daily workout challenge.
