An Unblurred Lady


February 1, 2016

Hello hello,
Can you believe its already February? The first month of 2016 flew by! Hope y'all had a wonderful weekend! The weather was BEAUTIFUL so I enjoyed some much needed time outdoors. As you can tell by my recent color choices, I am sooooo ready for spring! 
Now, who doesn't love the classic button down with sweater pairing? It's just so easy! I threw on duck hunting boots with this look because there was a chance of rain in the forecast, but as you can see in these pictures, we had 100% sun. So I looked silly in rain boots, but I didn't mind because they are oh so comfortable.

Hello hello,
Happy Thursday y'all! It's almost FriYAY so rejoice! 
My day to day color scheme is mostly white, grey and black; very boring. This scarf was a fun way to add color and interest to an otherwise blah look. Wearing it over my shoulders instead of around my neck also distributed the warmth! For even more texture, I threw on my rarely worn felt black hat, which made me feel extra fabulous.

Hello hello,
Recently, I accepted that I am obsessed with workout clothes. Due to time restrictions, I had to chose between shopping at either Lululemon or Anthropologie, and I just had to go with Lulu. AT that moment I realized my exercise clothing fixation. Since I've accumulated so many athletic pieces, I want to try incorporating them into my daytime wardrobe. Athleisure is so popular right now, and sounds super comfortable so why not give it a try. On workdays I probably can't get away with wearing my workout wardrobe, but my goal is to integrate my favorite exercise pieces (sports bras and tennis shoes) into my weekend wear. 

And here is a flatlay image of a typical workout #ootd! Below are some of my workout favorites along with an easy blueberry smoothie...

Can I have them all?! 
Now, after my workouts I've been trying to add protein shakes to my routine but seriously can't get used to the flavor. So I'm trying smoothie combinations to make it more appetizing. Last night I threw a bunch of fruit in the blender with some juice and protein powder and ended up with a surprisingly yummy drink. Doesn't it look yum...
Handful of Blueberries
Handful of Honeydew
One Cup of Frozen Tropical Fruit
One Cup of Sambazon (my favorite juice)
Juice from Half a Lime 
One Scoop of Vanilla Protein
Blend blend blend it up!

Hello hello,
Isn't the slight layer of white beautiful? Y'all don't understand how exciting snow is in Augusta. After growing up in the north with feet of snow every winter, the lack of it was pretty disappointing. Now even a centimeter makes me feel like a giddy child! We ventured to the canal, snapped these pictures and threw snowballs at each other. 
My snow day ootd consisted of cold, wet weather essentials: A Barbour jacket and Hunter wellies. I threw on a bright, thick sweater underneath for a pop of color amidst the gorgeous white backdrop. Pretty simple, the only thing I was missing were my gloves. I contemplated wearing my ski appropriate gear, but figured it was to bulky for the occasion.

Hello hello,

AH Augusta saw some snow this weekend! Waking up to a dusting of white was such a treat on Saturday morning. James and I even enjoyed a chilly stroll at the park while the last few flakes fell. Pictures of my snow outfit will be shared sometime this week! Fortunately for us, the snow melted by the afternoon and life was back to normal. 

This dress is one of the most interesting pieces in my closet. I don't typically wear sweater dresses, nor do I wear crazy geometric prints, so this purchase was outside the norm for me. BUT I could not get over the silhouette. The fit and flare was pretty extreme and it looked fabulous on. I think it was the combination of the texture and the shape that helped me fall in love. Unfortunately the dress and the shoes are sold out, but I linked up some very similar options below!

Sending positive thoughts to those north of Augusta that received too much snow! Stay warm y'all!
