Happier Still

Clearly I have been shopping online lately. But seriously, after loosing 30 pounds and keeping it off for nearly 6 months, I am in need of clothes that fit me. I have very muscular calves, so this skinny jeans epidemic  makes me feel a little like the hulk- right before his clothes split apart. I LOVE these jeans from Anthropologie. They are washed out black, cropped (gotta show my anklets off!), and they have room for my calves to breathe! I got them for 30% off recently, but they are back up to full price. These are worth adding to your shopping cart and keeping your eagle eyes on that price. I also snagged these Swedish Hasbeen Husband clogs! They are also back up to full price, but again, patience.  Be a shopping predator. Stalk it. Silently watch. Then POUNCE!

Happy feet!

I am so excited about these sweet New Balance shoes I just scored! They were on sale and an extra 40% off. So they ended up being around $35! These colors make me so happy. I was poking around the J Crew site and the girls New Balance shoes are the coolest! Amazing. Makes me remember this Kermit Song...

I saw a girl at my local store wearing the Insculpt Vest and it looked so cute on her!!  She told me that she sized down and that helped the fit. I tried- and she was right! It's the perfect light layer to throw on between layers. Plus I can fill the pockets with Kleenex- cause I've had 3 colds in 6 weeks! Yuck. Anyway, I think this piece is gonna be very functional in my life. I bought it in a size 8- and I could have tried the 6, but no one likes a too tight vest. The 8 is great!

Throw me a Herringbone.

It was cloudy yesterday, so I busted out my "cold weather" Skinny Will pants in Giant Herringbone. So comfy!!! Love the pockets, and if they bring these back my only request is that they make them a slightly lower rise. It's too bulky to roll the waist and too high to leave it up. But hey, we all have our issues.

A celebration of muscular calves!

I just got these Outdoor Voices pants yesterday, and I LOVE them! So unique, fun and clean lines, and the fabric is so awesome. I have very large calves. Seriously. They are crazy. I lost 30 pounds this summer and my calf measurement didn't change one single bit!! Anyway, these pants are so fun with the miss matched greys and all, and I like having some new, non Lulu in the mix.  Have you guys tried Outdoor Voices? I wear a 10 in Lululemon, and I got a size large in OV. They run on the smaller side.

Ode to the Cool Racerback.

I laid out my CRB collection and it was pretty fun to see them all lined up! I clearly have a tendency for the warm colors, and yes, I have 2 Regal Plum. They were both on markdown and one is RULU. Anyway, hope you enjoy how tidily I arranged them.

CRBII Thoughts

I tried on the new Cool Racerback today, and, while the purple color is STUNNING, I walked away without it. Why? 
1. The back is too fussy. I don't want my straps to be all cockeyed and goofy. But that's only me, because I'm sure if you wore a cute little Flow Y bra you'd be golden. 
2. It's $48. Really. I can't. 
3. The edging around the neck doesn't lay as flat, and I'm wondering if it wouldn't be as comfortable. Don't know that for sure, just an observation.

Honestly, it's pretty cute, and not that much shorter in length. If you have an extra $6 you want to spend on a basic, go crazy. Meanwhile, I'll be scouring the sale rack for marked down original CRBs and hoping that one day I'll find a NWT Black Cherry one on eBay. One day.
