Athleisure wear

February 27, 2018
Ok, I did it!  I jumped on the athleisure wear train!  I slipped into these leggings and realized instantly why so many gals wear them.  Super comfy.... and talk about making you feel pulled together in all the right places.

I have to admit, I'm not one to run around in leggings; It's just not me.  Give me a pair of slim fit joggers and I'm happy, but these are pretty fab.  My best friend from high school has a pair  of leggings for every day of the week.  She literally lives in them and she talked me into my first pair.  I love the black on black leopard print of these and now I see now why so many girls wear them all the time.  I think they would great for traveling and with the right longer top or tunic, they could be airport appropriate.  I personally have always dressed for traveling.  You never know who you are going to cross paths with in an airport and while I have never had my luggage lost ( fingers crossed it doesn't happen), being dressed for an occasion rather than a yoga studio feels better to me!   Just saying!!

Wednesdays Wants

February 21, 2018
Happy Wednesday friends!

1  //  2  //  3  //  4  //  5  //  6

Who else besides me has missed Wednesday Wants?   I  am so excited to share the first installment for 2018.  I must be having a thing for bucket bags because all three of these are fabulous.  I want all of them!  That Staud bag is super fun!  I am glad that tie dye is still a "thing" because this cute maxi dress is perfect for a spring day.  On to these shoes..... Now you know I have a thing for leopard.... these Air and Grace sneakers are the best.  I mean really.... they are super casual but yet certainly can take your weekend wear up a notch!!  Can we stop for a minute and imagine this pink dial Michele watch on our arm?  This is feeling like a must have for me.  I love my Michele watch and wear it every day.  I recently have been thinking I would like to switch things up and get a round dial watch.. I think I found it!   

Polka Dots and Pink

February 20, 2018
Put a little pink on me and watch me shine!  Gab alway says, my best pics are when I am wearing pink!  I think she is right!   It doesn't hurt that my bag is pink either!  

I love a good polka dot and this shirt does not disappoint.  When I found this soft pink cardigan I knew I would want to pair them together.  To elevate my pattern mixing, these pants are a black on black leopard print.  If you read my post How to Pattern Mix, then you know I am not shy of mixing it up!! Because the pants have a leopard pattern in them I chose a solid black shoe.  Adding a few good items to my closet that I can multipurpose in different seasons is always a good investment.  Have you added any transitional items to your wardrobe lately?  What are some of your favorite items to multipurpose?

Forever Fierce

February 19, 2018

Happy Monday lovelies!!  It is a great day!  I am so excited to be sharing with you not only my idea of what I think it means to be fierce in midlife, but the ideas of a few thousand other ladies as well! Yes, you read that correctly.  Today is Forever Fierce Day and I have collaborated with 50 other bloggers; who just happen to be fierce sisters!  We all have asked a few friends, neighbors, and even family members to share what they think.  Read all of their stories here #Foreverfierce.  Is midlife the wrong side of 40?  I don't think so, actually I know it's not!  So I am asking you today too... what does being fierce in midlife mean to you? 

Below are the things I have discovered in midlife:

I let go of the drama that people surround themselves with.  I embrace the changes in my body and still rock a bikini.  Gravity is inevitable, but self esteem and pride in your life is priceless. 

Skincare has always been important to me and I continue to take good care of my skin.  Adapting to the changes has just meant adding a few new items! 

Wisdom is grand; with age comes the knowledge that it is sometimes better to observe rather than speak.  Changing my diet has been a huge benefit!  I eat more fruits and vegetables and have cut out processed food.  About 6 years ago I switched up totally and became mostly vegetarian. (With the exception of sushi of course).  So technically it's called pescaterian.  

Happiness is something that you are; a state of mind.  I have been called brave for my journey and I'll take that with my head high!  I was brave, still am actually.  If you read my post, Life Begins at the end of your Comfort Zone then you will see that I may have been down, but I am now back up and empowered!  My passion burns brighter than my fear and I am full of drive and motivation and I won't get in my own way.  Change is always on the horizon and I choose to grow with it.  I will reach again for what is in me.  I will fiercely forge a new path and set out on it - boldly, while making no excuses.  

So, tell me...what does fierce in midlife mean to you?  Click here to join the movement!
