The Worst

Guys.. I've literally been the worst. I've been working 60 hours a week (next week is another one of those) and honestly I lost my drive to blog for awhile. Sometimes it's discouraging to look at other women that have INCREDIBLE blogs, the money to buy whatever clothes they want, and endless amount of time to post.. And I just tell myself that I'll never get there. People might never care about my blog. In case you can't tell... I've been struggling. This is my post to hopefully get back in the swing of things..

I got to go shopping yesterday for the first time in a very long time. My sandals & denim vest are from Target. My skirt was only $9 from Forever 21. My shirt is from Pac Sun. They had literally just gotten it in. You can't see it but it's SO long & it fits incredibly. And lastly, my necklace is from Charming Charlie's. This week is gonna be another tough one, but I'll do my best to post again!

Welcome Back!

Guys... I have been such a slacker! But I feel I deserve forgiveness because... I've been working sixty hour weeks & have been surviving on not a lot of sleep. I've gone to post quite a few times & just didn't have the motivation. But here I am now! A little update on my life... We've just been preparing for our trip to California (the only reason I've been surviving), both Mike & I have been working crazy hours, the restaurant I work at is opening a new store & so that's been making our lives crazy. We were enjoying the 60 degree weather and then it decided to take a nose dive & that's been making me grumpy! This weekend my brother-in-law is getting married & my hero, Ronda Rousey, fights on Saturday & I'm FREAKING stoked! But enough of that... Here's todays outfit:

I've worn most of these items before. The boots are from Nine West, leggings are from Forever 21, the sweater is from H&M, & the scarf is from Walmart. Today is my first day off in thirteen days so today I was going for a very lazy look. & now I'm going to take a much needed nap!!

Vacation Outfit

This past week was a toughy! Mike & I both got the flu (which I haven't had in YEARS) so that threw me for a loop. Then on Friday Mike's truck broke down. I worked a ton at both jobs. So needless to say... That's my excuse for not posting in days. Last weekend we went down & saw Mike's family (that's where we got the flu) & so this outfit is from that trip..

I got my sweet Chuck Taylor's on.. I wear them, probably, too much. My jeans are from JC Penny. I got them about 4 years ago and they STILL make my hands blue every time I wear them, but I absolutely LOVE the color of them so I deal with it. My black T-shirt & neon kimono are both from H&M. The kimono was a steal... I got it for only $10. And then my necklace is probably my favorite part.. It's pieces of turquoise & I got it from Forever 21. I LOVE it. 
I will do my best to post more but... No promises. Happy Super Bowl Sunday!

Camo & Chucks

I've had lots of time off this week to spend with my husband & it's been wonderful! It's put me in an even better mood for this gorgeous Friday! On top of that... Tomorrow we're going to spend some time with Mike's family & I'm really excited. PLUS... This weather is incredible! If it could just keep this up I would be soo grateful! My outfit today is actually from yesterday. I mixed the winter & spring apparel up together.

I may wear my camo pants too often but I just LOVE them. It took me forever to find the perfect pair. And of course I love my Chucks. They go with almost anything and add a bit of summer to my life. My pants are from Forever 21. My shoes are Converse. My plain gray long sleeve is from Cotton On. My black vest was a Christmas present from my friend Lauren. And lastly, all my necklaces are from Forever 21.
If you notice.. One of my necklaces is for breast cancer awareness. My Grandma died from breast cancer a little over ten years ago & it forever changed our whole family. Anyone & everyone should support cancer research in any way they can.
I hope everyone has an incredible weekend.. I know mine will be!

This has been an exciting week for me when it comes to my self confidence. I have lost 13.8 lbs and for the first time in my ENTIRE life... I feel really good about myself. I can put on almost any outfit and not worry about if I look fat or not. I still have a bit to go before my goal, but I am definitely making process.
Today's outfit is brought to you via selfie.. Enjoy!

My stripped shirt is from a store called Lemon Ice & I love it. It fits me perfect and just flows. My pants are from Forever 21. You can't really see them but they're olive green with black leather accents on top and gold zippers on the bottom. My shoes are Chuck Taylor's from Journey's. And... My incredible necklace is from Charming Charlie's. 
I hope everyone enjoys their three day weekend!

Another Wednesday

Apparently Wednesdays are popular days for me to post... Maybe because I always need a pick-me-up as much as everyone else. This past weekend was a hard one for me... Probably the hardest in the last couple years. 2015 hasn't started out too good for me. I can only hope for some improvement. This dreary weather is not helping either. In the summer, my husband & I are going to California with family and the idea of that vacation is what is getting me through. I really am grateful for the lack of snow, though. I should count my blessings.
And the outfit for today (drum roll please)...

First off... Excuse my hair. But besides that I am rather fond of this outfit. I honestly love these colors together.
The scarf was a present, so I don't know where it is from. The cardigan, white top, and the pants are all from H&M. The boots are from Nine West. And the purse is from Charming Charlie's.
I feel like the outfit, very much, matched the weather and my mood. The rest of this week is very busy for me, but I will do my best to post sooner than one week, again. I hope everyone enjoys this week and... Valentine's day is exactly one month away. Yay!

Happy Hump Day!

This week has been going by speedy quick! Which makes me very happy because I'm SUPER excited for this weekend. I just wanted to give everyone a pick-me-up, with this outfit, to help us all make it through the rest of the week.

I'm pretty much in love with this outfit. The boots are from Nine West--my aunt gave them to me and I love them! My leggings are from Forever 21. The plain, gray  long sleeve is from Cotton On. And my, frequently worn, red plaid shirt is from Old Navy.
I just love that it's a pretty plain outfit, but then it gets spiced up just by adding the red shirt around the waist. Plus... People have started noticing that I've lost weight and it's been really nice. Being on this diet hasn't been the easiest, since I'm used to eating whatever and whenever I want, but it has been SO worth it. I'm really proud of myself. Hopefully I can keep it up and get down to my goal weight.
I hope everyone has an incredible rest of the week!
