Currently Loving .170

Happy Friday and Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you have had a great week! I have been busy finishing up a project at work (a fun STEM challenge partnership that we have been working on with NASA) and prepping for dress rehearsal for competitive dance this weekend. We are getting ready to jump back into the fake eyelashes and extra strong hairspray season! 

Today, I'm sharing my weekly roundup of what I'm Currently Loving! Now that spring pieces are now being released, I am finding that I am currently loving so much! Fall and spring are definitely my personal favorite seasons to dress for because I really love transitional style. I love pairing a fun spring top with my favorite jeans from the winter or a sweater with shorts!

Which of this week's picks is your favorite?!

1. D R E S S | You just really can't go wrong with a black and white striped dress! I love the sleeves, the length, and the side slit on this one. It would be so cute with a pair of sneakers and a denim jacket! Super put together yet super comfortable. The best kind of outfit!

2. S N E A K E R S | Speaking of sneakers, I own a pair that are very similar pair (mine are the same style and brand, just older) and they are definitely my most worn pair of shoes right now. I wear them with jeans to work almost every single day but they also totally work with skirts and dresses, too. Also, they are beyond comfortable! I wore them all over Disney (20k steps per day) with no discomfort. I would definitely recommend them!


3. F L O W E R  T E E | My favorite flower tee is back! This tee is under $13 and is such a fun piece to add to your wardrobe. I love wearing mine under a cardigan or denim jacket but it also works great on it's own with a pair of shorts in the spring or summer. The sizing is juniors so I would suggest sizing up at least one size for the best fit.


4. N E C K L A C E | I'm all about dainty necklaces and I love hearts! I'm planning on wearing all of my heart shaped jewelry today but remember, hearts aren't just for Valenine's Day. I wear them all year long because well, they make me happy!


5. J A C K E T | A utility jacket is such a classic piece and that will be a wardrobe staple for many years to come. I replaced my old one with this one last year and it's one of my most worn pieces in my closet. It's perfect for layering now or throwing over a tee when spring comes. I sized up one size for the most comfortable fit.


6. W H I T E  T O P | I really love white tops and this one is no exception. Isn't it so pretty and feminine?! This budget friendly piece is another great wear now and later item. It works now with jeans and a warm layer on top but it would be adorable with cut off shorts later!


7. B A G | I currently have too many bags on my wish list! But, I think this one just got moved to the number one spot. I absolutely love the style and the print. It's just perfect!


8.  O V E R S I Z E D  T O P | Who else loves oversized tops that are leggings friendly?! I certainly do! I'm all about cozy and I can't wait to get this top in the mail to style it for y'all!

Instagram Roundup .199

Happy Wednesday! I hope you are having a great week so far! 

Today, I'm sharing my weekly Instagram Roundup, which includes my outfits from last week. We have been having the weirdest weather here in North Carolina. Winter temperatures, crazy storms, high winds, snow, spring temperatures, and so much rain. You literally have to check the weather the second before you leave the house or you will probably be dressed incorrectly for the day, lol!

My new favorite cardigan! It fits a little oversized but I would went with my regular size.

Five Favorites .08

Hey y'all! I hope you had a great weekend! Our weekend involved some good food, thrift store and plant shopping, and some relaxation. I am currently really loving having lots of indoor plants filling our space so I added an umbrella plant to my collection this weekend. Speaking of things that I am loving, today I'm sharing five of my current favorites. Everything from protein bars to cozy sweatshirts are included in today's post! What are you currently loving?!


I am not a big breakfast eater. I'm just not hungry in the mornings, which was why intermittent fasting was so easy for me. I've moved away from intentional intermittent fasting to intuitive eating. Intuitive eating is basically just listening to your body, which I learned much more about from my journey with intermittent fasting. When I feel hungry in the morning, one of my very favorite things to eat is one of these Perfect Bars. They are filled with protein and super foods that keep you full. There's also so many delicious flavors to try!

This bobble cardigan sweater is my current favorite clothing item! My current closet consists of mostly basic, classic pieces that I absolutely love but I needed something fun. This sweater is so great to mix and match with my closet staples, like a white tee or black turtleneck. It fits a little oversized but I would recommend staying true to size for a cozy fit!



One of my very favorite ways to unwind at the end of the day is with a bath, especially a bubble bath! I used to be a big fan of bath bombs but you can only use them once and then you are done. I just feel like they are too expensive for what you really get from it. Then, I discovered these awesome bubble bars. You just pinch off a little bit of it (a little goes a long way) and then crumble it into your warm bath water. So many bubbles and it smells amazing! One of these bars lasts me at least 5-6 baths.

I'm pretty sure there is evidence somewhere that getting new workout clothes makes you want to go workout! Well, at least it totally works for me. I am loving these leopard print leggings! I wear them to the gym but also as athleisure with white sneakers and a cozy sherpa. I found the fit to be true to size and I got the short length (I'm 5'5") for ankle breathing room, lol. I like my leggings to be just a little shorter for working out.



I literally had this sweatshirt in my Etsy card for months. I finally went back and purchased it about a month ago. It is seriously my most favorite sweatshirt! I have been wearing it multiple times a week to take the kids to school, run errands, or I've thrown it over my gym clothes for an extra layer. It's so good! I sized up one size for a relaxed, leggings friendly fit.

What to Wear for Valentine's Day

Hey y'all! I am sharing a bonus post today because I've teamed up with four awesome ladies (Erin, Courtney, and Brittany) to share some style inspiration for Valentine's Day! I personally own zero red in my closet. It's my least favorite color but I do love some pink and heart shaped jeweled, like I mentioned today in my Currently Loving post. I will be hanging out of my husband and kids on Valentine's Day so any of the looks I've put together will totally work for me. Everything is casual yet put together, which is my favorite way to dress!

O U T F I T  O N E
This sweater was featured today in my currently loving post and it's my new favorite! The color is beautiful and I absolutely love the style. It runs a little big, which I love so I stuck with my normal size, a small. I paired it with a gray bodysuit, the very best skinny jeans (true to size, flattering, hold you on, and comfortable), leopard boots, and a round crossbody bag to complete the look. I loved this outfit so much that I am totally just wearing this exact look today!

I styled this look completely around these heels. I bought them last year from Old Navy and they are such a fun pair to have on hand. I really love a block heel! I love pairing dressy pieces with casual so I really love how the heels look with the distressed denim. I completed the look with a closet staple, a black turtleneck and a pop of leopard, of course. I think this outfit would be so cute for a date!

If you a neutral kind of girl and own zero pink or red then this look is for you. A fun dress, denim jacket, and ankle boots made a little more festive with heart shaped gold jewelry! I have linked some great heart shaped jewels at the bottom of this post. If you are wanting to look a little festive on Valentine's Day without buying a whole new outfit, just add some heart shaped pieces to accessorize an outfit that you already own.

Staying home on Valentine's Day? No worries, I've got you covered too! This comfy, casual look will take you from everyday errands to a date on the couch. The color of the top makes it feel more festive for Valentine's Day and I love the relaxed fit. I'm wearing a small and it does run a little oversized but I stuck with my regular size so it would be leggings friendly. White sneakers and my medium transport tote complete the look (my bag strap is sold out again but Madewell has so many new ones that I love, too)! The macrame one I shared today is on my wish list!

Happy Friday! I hope you've had a great week! We don't have a lot on our agenda this weekend but I do think I am going to do a little indoor plant shopping. I am trying to be a better plant mom and so far it's going well. I love filling our house with live plants. It just makes me happy!

Today, I'm sharing my weekly roundup of what I'm Currently Loving. I am currently really loving all things heart shaped and rose pink! My husband and I don't exchange elaborate gifts on Valentine's Day or anything like that. We usually keep it super simple (like a four dollar Aldi bouquet of roses) but I've always really loved Valentine's Day! Hearts, candy, flowers, and pink. My favorites!

Which of this week's picks is your favorite?!

1. B L A Z E R | I tried this blazer on in stories last weekend and it's such a great, budget friendly find. The quality is amazing, especially for the price! I bought a super similar by the same brand last year and I am still loving mine. I found it to run a little small so I would definitely recommend sizing up at least one size or two sizes if you would prefer more of a boyfriend fit. 



2. B A G | How cute is this bag?! I really do not need anymore bags in life (my current Madewell bag collection can be found here) but I love this one. So fun!



3. W H I T E  T O P | I am always drawn to white tops; I just love them. I really love the relaxed style of this one and the button front detail. You could even wear this as a lightweight cardigan during the springtime! Such a versatile top.

4. B A G  S T R A P | The only thing I love as much as Madewell bags is there bag straps! I got a leopard print one for my birthday last November and it makes my favorite bag even better. Madewell recently released some new bag straps and this macrame one is my personal favorite. It will look so cute on my Medium Transport Tote!



5. C A R D I G A N | I'm pretty great at not making impulse purchases anymore but I had a total moment of weakness and purchased this cardigan the very moment that I first saw it on the website! I missed out on it the last time that they had this style available and I didn't want to miss it again because I still loved it. I'm so happy I purchased it because it's honestly even better in person! It fits a little oversized but I went with my regular size and I love the fit. 



6.  F L O R A L  T O P | This top is so perfect for Valentine's Day! This color is my personal favorite. I wear mostly neutrals except for pink! I would style this top with skinny jeans and my leopard print boots for a casual date night look.

7. E A R R I N G S | Like I mentioned earlier, I absolutely love heart shaped things and these earrings are no exception. I love the size and style of them because they are perfect for everyday. Also, hearts aren't just for February! I love wear all of the hearts all year long.



8. D R E S S | This dress was another one of my try ons from the weekend, except I tried it on in a pretty rose pink color. It also comes in this black version and gray as well. I'm planning to purchase one but I don't know which color to pick! They are three of my favorite colors. The dress does fit true to size (and has pockets) but if you are taller than 5'5", I would definitely size up for some extra length because it does fit on the shorter side.



Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you have a great weekend!

Instagram Roundup .198

Hey y'all! I hope you are having a great week! Yesterday, I shared My One Word for 2020 here on the blog! I'm sharing the story of how I chose my word for this year on that post so be sure to go back and check it out if you missed it. 

Today, I'm sharing my weekly Instagram Roundup, including my outfits from the past week. I am wearing my favorite J.Crew jeans in almost every outfit that I'm including in this week's roundup! I have shared them so many times and they are worth mentioning again. The most comfortable pair of skinny jeans that hold you in (hello, magic pockets)! They fit true to size and are worth every penny.
