Gray Plaid Blazer | Style Guide

Gray Plaid Blazer | Style Guide

Happy hump day! I’m having such a hard time accepting that Christmas is less than two weeks away. I’m still picking up a few last minute gifts and planning exactly how I want to execute my agenda in the upcoming year. Not to mention wrapping up end of the year projects at work and preparing for my time off. Needless to say, I have a lot going on. But what’s new? LOL I wore this outfit for a day downtown for some meetings and shopping and it didn’t disappoint. These Kristin Cavallari boots are comfortable enough to wear all day and I’m not ashamed to say I’ve worn this blazer almost every week since it got delivered.

I’m no stranger to incorporating a blazer into my style. It’s easily my go-to in cooler temperatures when I’m wanting to pull my outfit together. I’d been seeing plaid patterned blazers on all of my favorite blogs and Instagram and knew when I found a gray one, I’d add it to my wardrobe. Luckily, I ran across this gray one on the Missguided website. I also ordered it in two other colors (it comes in 14 colors), but the gray plaid is hands down my favorite.

Chelsea boots were one trend I could never really get into, until I saw this heeled version with a pointier toe. I bought them a few weeks ago after they restocked for the second time and they’re almost sold out in every size again. I’d been on the search for a bootie that wasn’t necessarily a high heel, but definitely wasn’t flat and this is the perfect medium. This Kendall and Kylie bootie is identical and close to the same price. They have a taupe pair that I’m in love with!

When I originally set my eyes onto a plaid blazer, one of my favorite bloggers had hers on with a graphic tee and denim and I loved how casual she wore it. I opted for a long sleeve plunge bodysuit since it was cooler outside. Bodysuits are something I keep on hand for every season because they pair so well with just about everything. Denim, skirts, or cut off shorts. You better believe I’ll still be wearing this blazer in the summer! LOL

Tomorrow I’ll have a gift guide up for those of you having trouble figuring out what to ask for, so be ready to copy and paste it into your iMessages ūüėČ

As you all know, we spent last Saturday at Hotel Alessandra here in downtown Houston. I wore this outfit for drinks up at the hotel pool. When the sun is beaming, the jacket isn’t necessary. But as soon as it starts to set, the temperature drops significantly. I’d had my eyes on this suede moto jacket ever since last years Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I waited almost a year for it to go on sale and it never did, so I finally gave in and bought it full price. It was definitely worth it. The quality of this jacket is unreal.

Leather moto jackets make me feel like a bad ass, but suede moto jackets make me feel a bit more luxe. Having a rich pop of color takes any outfit up a notch. This particular jacket comes in 7 shades and I had such a hard time deciding between the shade I got and the burgundy one. I love the fact that I can put on all black and throw this jacket on top of it.

I was on the hunt for some suede over-the-knee boots that wouldn’t slip. My legs and thighs are pretty slim and I’ve encountered so many problems with boots not staying up while wearing them and nothing is more annoying than tugging at boots while you’re walking. I found this black pair from Sole Society that had back tie details, which made me feel much more comfortable in case my legs happened to be too skinny. Stuart Weitzman is the only designer I’ve seen implement back tie’s onto their boots and I couldn’t afford them with wedding planning LOL.

This particular pair is sold out except for in one size, but I found some similar options here, here and here. My jeans are Joe’s and are currently on sale. My knit sweater is a favorite of mine and is from H&M, who has 10% off of everything today. Use code 9054!

I’m going to work on #CoffeeTalk questions this evening and it may be a short one due to all I’ve got going on. Last chance to get your questions over to me via DM or email!

Fitness Gift Guide

No other time throughout the year has everyone wanting to be their best selves, including health wise, than a New Year. After all the eating we do for the holidays, everyone wants to jump into a fitness routine after Christmas, making it easy to gift something that will help them get a jump start when they’re ready. I personally plan to get back into the swing of healthy eating and consistent workouts once this month is over and I know in particular how much cute workout shoes and clothes make it easier to do. I’ve rounded up my fitness favorites for you to shop and hopefully give.

Adidas Running Shoe¬†–¬†I ordered these shoes to wear casually because I loved the style, but ended up loving how comfortable they were. I’ve been running in them instead.

Two Tone Nike Pants¬†–¬†Nike workout pants are my go-to. I love these in particular because they’re fun and can be worn with so many different things.

Nike Running Pouch¬†–¬†If you don’t have one of these, you need one. When I run out outdoors I use it to hold my keys and cell phone. Plus it’s much more fashionable than a regular fanny pack.

Marble Yoga Mat¬†–¬†I do a LOT of home workouts, so a yoga mat is a necessity for me. This one is chic and because it’s dark, won’t get worn as fast as the colorful ones I’ve had in the past.

Silver FitBit¬†–¬†This FitBit is so cute I’m contemplating actually getting one. It looks like an actual piece of jewelry.

Contemporary Backpack¬†–¬†I prefer to pack my gym things (resistance bands, waist belt, ankle weights, etc.) in a backpack, as opposed to a duffel. Weight on both on my shoulders is better for me and I love the colors and pattern of this backpack.

MCT Oil –¬†¬†I’ve talked about this a few times on my Instastories and even I was skeptical at first. Not only does it give me a crazy boost of all natural energy making me laser focused, it curbs my appetite so I lose the urge to snack. I don’t recommend it if coffee makes you jittery, because this is coffee times two. But if you can take a nap after drinking coffee like me, get some MCT oil asap!

Color Blocked Leggings¬†–¬†Nordstrom had a similar pair but triple the price. Forever21 did great with this pair.

Foam Roller¬†–¬†A necessity. A foam roller is really one of those things that “hurts so good”. I used to get so sore it would keep me from working out for the next 2-3 days. Using a foam roller keeps me from needing to sit out.

iPhone Arm Holder РBecause NOTHING compares to a hands free workout.

Strappy Workout Top¬†–¬†I recommend these for women with small chests like me. A bra isn’t necessary and the strappy style makes you feel a bit sexier when working up a sweat.

Bose Earbuds¬†– I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I prefer these over my wireless beats. The sound quality is incredible and they’re tiny.

BKR Water Bottle¬†–¬†You should REALLY consider moving over to glass water bottles. Aside from the health benefits, the taste is way better. I drink way more water out of a glass water bottle and love the rubber grip on this one.

Nike Duffle¬†–¬†A great duffel for under $25. Can’t beat that.

Confetti Colored Nike Pants РThe perfect way to make boring gym clothes fun.

Mesh Yoga Pants –¬†I don’t have a pair of these but see so many women wearing them in the gym that I’m convinced I need to have them.

Nike FlyKnit РThis pair is on sale and is still my hands down favorite travel/workout/run errands shoe.

Nike Two Tone Sports Bra –¬†What I prefer to wear when I start seeing my results in the mirror LOL.

Amino Energy¬†–¬†I heard terrible things about “pre workout” and was introduced to this Amino Energy through a coworker. It’s my

The Best Yoga Bodysuit¬†–¬†This bodysuit is amazing if you’re needing flexibility, particularly during yoga. The best part is I can throw a jacket over it and wear it to run errands as well.
