Cuz It's Sneaker Night

Anyone remember that music video by Vanessa Hudgens for her song "Sneaker Night"?! Yeah well I just got these shoes that make me feel like there needs to be a remake with them... LIGHT UP SNEAKERS PEOPLE. They're a thing and I'm alllll about them! I'm seriously jazzed about this version of the light-up sneaks from Filly Flair. I have big plans for them this summer.... long runs at 12am, wearing them to bed as a night light, wearing them to work to make everyone jealous... it's gonna be LIT. Literally.  

I like to run outside, and I found this lightweight zip-up breathable hoodie from Target for the colder weather. The leggings are from H&M, and my all-time FAV sports bra from Victoria's Secret. I really struggle with my body type to find sports bras that truly give me the support I need when working out, and the best ones I've ever gotten are from VS. If you're bigger in the chest, I know you feel my pain (literally)! It is so uncomfortable to run or do high-movement workouts that don't leave you sore. I am here to tell you that there is HOPE! Shop this link to get a maximum-support sports bra. 

I am always looking for cute workout gear, because there's so many things that I do that call for different types of workout pieces. But I HATE how expensive they tend to be! If you know what I'm talking about, than you'll appreciate the list I made below of all the places I have found to have reaaaallly cute workout gear with great prices! You're welcome.

Something I want to talk a lot more about here is my passion for living a healthy lifestyle. I have always really valued being a healthy person and staying consistent through healthy behavior. From eating habits, regular exercise, feeding my brain with learning, to counseling and an alive prayer life, I place value in the things that keep us healthy individuals. It is my goal to always be nourishing my body, mind, and soul with good things on a daily basis, for the rest of my life. Wether that be with organic produce, a new book, 25 minutes of cardio or 5 minutes of audible and inner silence with the Lord, I have realized how important it is to just stay consistent with these things and make the act of doing them a habit instead of a phase. It is really tough sometimes to stay consistent, and I go through seasons where my consistency in some of these areas is really lacking. Change in my life or seasons of travel always bring more of a challenge in keeping up with good habits. It is always hard to find time to workout or meal plan, and it can also be expensive. There will ALWAYS be excuses and reasons why I shouldn't. But I will always be dedicated to the process and fighting for consistency. All it takes is a lot of little, daily decisions!

Finest Hour Lace Up

If you didn't already know this, Jon and I just recently moved to Michigan. It's been a crazy adventure! One thing I have been realizing is that I now have no idea where to shop locally for cute clothes! It's definitely going to take some time getting used to the area and getting to know the good places to find stuff. Because of my unfamiliarity to the new town, I have been enjoying shopping online for clothes, specifically at online boutiques! Listen guys, if you like affordable prices for carefully selected styles of clothing pieces, boutiques are really the way to go. I have recently been collaborating with Filly Flair, a super cute online boutique run by Laura Benson. Laura is passionate about finding comfortable, high quality designs that make all women feel pretty throughout any season of life. I really enjoy the collection of clothes Filly Flair has to offer, because there is such a great mixture of styles that I love. From floral prints, cozy sweaters, an assortment of booties, colorful purses, to flowy spring tanks and tunics, there's a ton of cute options to add to your wardrobe without breaking the bank. They even have kids clothes and bridesmaid dresses, plus there's free shipping on orders over $50! 

Ok so I am very excited for spring to get here, and I have been looking for some lightweight sweaters that would keep me warm without having to wear a coat. This one is not only ADORBS but it's so soft and comfy! I love the lace-up front and the length. I also love the way the sleeves fit, they aren't bulky and and don't flare out at the wrist like some sweaters do. And right now it's on sale for less than $30! Shop it Here

I really like this sweater paired with a cute chunky heel. The ones I am wearing are from H&M (as well as my high-waisted black jeans), and you can find a similar style Here. The rancher hat is from Target, most likely bought when I was on a grocery run which instead turned into a shopping spree as per usual because... Target. ;) 

Little Black Tunic

Is is Spring yet?! I'm so ready for some nicer weather! In light of the warmer season being just around the corner, I give you the For All Who Envy tunic! I feel like you can never have too many tunics, they're the most comfortable kind of dress (in my opinion) that you can mix up with colors, patterns, tassels, embroidery, etc. to add diversity to your closet. I am in love with this one from The Mint Julep Boutique! This dress makes me feel like I could kick some serious butt when I wear it, I love it's grungy style! 

The Mint Julep Boutique has tons of cute new arrivals, this dress being one of them! The best news is, it's super affordable :) If you haven't heard of The Mint Julep Boutique yet, you have to check them out! They're an online boutique, so you never have to leave your couch to shop their adorable collections, plus you get $10 off your first purchase. Visit the site Here or follow them on Instagram Here! I am really passionate about finding awesome boutiques like this one, where you can find a large variety of styles within their pieces and not have to spend a ton of money. I have noticed that a lot middle-class women believe you have to spend a lot to really feel stylish and feel like you're getting high-quality clothes. Boutiques are one of the ways to prove this mentality wrong! The Mint Julep is such a great example of this, they have high quality clothes that are so affordable. Don't get stuck thinking you can't be cute because you don't have a lot of money! It's very possible to fill your wardrobe without having to empty your bank account.
