Laced Up

I love wearing bodysuits… and that was not something I ever thought I would say about a year ago. As I’ve mentioned on here before, I was unsure I had the right body-type to wear one, in my opinion. I always thought you had to be rail thin with huge boobs, but here I am. I ordered one online from American Apparel last year without trying it on. I was like screw it, if I try it on in a store I’ll just talk myself out of it. So I bought it, tried it on at home with something high waisted, and fell in love. These days I try on every bodysuit I come across, and this one may be my new favorite.

At first glace this top looks like it may be some slinky lingerie, but I promise you, it’s not! hah. What I don’t actually love about this bodysuit is the bottom half… the lace bodice stops about half way and then it turns to a solid piece of fabric. It starts up way too high so it can only be worn with something high waisted… which I guess isn’t terrible, but it is definitely limiting. However, the strappy top and lacy detail make this a perfect bodysuit to layer under something a little more loose fitting for that sought after peek-a-boo look.

I’m still obsessed with this skirt. It will forever be a go-to when the weather starts to warm up. I’ve worn it with everything from chunky sweaters, to crop tops, to band t-shirts, to button-ups. One of the best items I have in my closet for sure. It’s about 2 years old now, so I can’t find the exact style online anymore but I’ve linked to something similar above!

All Business in the New Year

One thing I have had on my style bucket list this past year was a leather pencil skirt. I’ve honestly been trying to snag myself one for an absurdly long time now and thanks to Shein my dreams have finally come true! I love the edge that leather ads to this otherwise everyday look. img_4726-2

Thank god for this little faux fur coat because when I tell you it was COLD the day we shot this look, it was COLD. Like, take a break between shots to warm up your fingers and toes, cold. This coat keeps me warm and toasty every time I wear it!

I have always wanted a leather pencil skirt for the office. I’ve never been one to wear simple black dress pants and a button up to work… snore, so I’m always looking for a way to elevate my look. This little pencil skirt is a new favorite of mine!

Actually I wore this shirt on my birthday outing to Liberty Science Center! That night I paired it with faux leather pants and my Stuart Weitzman over the knee boots. And I must say… I legit did the climbing wall in my high heel boots! Crushed it. So yeah, I have a thing for pairing this top with leather bottoms. They were, how you say, made for each other! ;]

So guys! I hope you all had a happy and healthy holiday season! I took the week between Christmas and New Years off and, honestly, I’m glad to be back at work! I was starting to forget what day it was… who I was… I was like 2 more days off away from not showering anymore, you know? Getting back into the swing of things feels good! Did you set any goals for the new year? Or New Years Resolutions? I want to cut out sugar… but that’s not realistic. So I’m just going to try to eat as healthy as possible as often as possible! ALSO. I gave up alcohol. I’m going to cut that out, and soda, and start eating “clean-ish” while working out 4-6 days a week and see what my body can do! I’m 2 days in for all of the above and I feel good! Talk to me in like a week… we’ll see where I’m at. HAH.
