A Few Things On the Radar – Latest Online Haul

I do not do well with days off.  What I mean by this is when I have extra time on my hands I definitely know how to fill it.  Yesterday with my glorious day off I woke up around the regular time went to a leisure 8:30 barre class and then headed over to TJMaxx where I got a few gems I wanted to share with you.

I have been trying to combine my two work bags.  Currently I have my Neverfull and another tote that I keep my macbook, stethoscope etc.  I used to put them all in my Neverfull but the straps are so dang thin it cut into my shoulder and would make my hand go numb.  I pursued quickly though the purse aisle and ran across this beauty.

It looks super high end.  Also the bag itself is light so when I added my entire my life contents it doesn’t break my shoulder.  Keep your eye out at your TJMaxx or I found it here at Macy’s.
While also there I found this.  I have color treated hair but most of those products are so heavy and weight it down.  This is sulfate free, adds volume but nourishing for color treated.  It is finally the perfect combo!
Alright finally a few F21 winners.  I have been back and forth on jogger pants.  I put them on and was waiting for a Mark comment about trendy clothing.  He ran his hand over the material “those look so comfortable“.  You know what?  They are so comfortable.  I came to the conclusion the only way they look good is with some heels so that tapered part angles into the heel height.  I have a feeling these will be worn a lot especially since they were less than $15.  Love the silky material!  I got a size small for reference.  They come in black as well and totally eyeing this faux leather pair.
I am always on the hunt for lace tops.  Usually they add so much bulk, don’t lay right or are scratchy. This top is amazing.  It has scalloped accents on the bottom and top, lycra stretch and has a smooth/soft feel to it.  I am in love.  Seriously grab it before it sells out.  I got a medium.  Looks great over black skinnies 
Or tucked into a pencil skirt.
My last scoop up is this blush top.  It has a silky feel to it that is perfect for work, over jeans or tucked into a skirt.  Probably need to hit it with a steamer before wearing but wanted to show you the great fit and color.  Also loving this one and this one affordable spring tops.
I wanted to leave you with this.  
Last night I taught two classes at my studio before I’m off for the week.  My team surprised me with a veil, garter and corsage to wear while teaching class as well as the sweetest card signed by the girls who taught at the studio.  It blew me away.  All the families and support that I have created around me!  Including the blogging community!  I can’t thank you all enough for all your kind words, encouragement and talking me off ledges over this time!  Friday is going to be amazing and I can’t wait to share every last detail with you!  xoxoxo

    Love all your new purchases, esp the lace top and bag! The blush top is pretty on you. I sadly do not wear that color well. Your barre class sounds like a blast. If only we lived in the same area I would love to be a part of it! Super excited to see wedding pics! xoxo

    Those are some awesome finds, lady! I’ve heard great things about the BIG HAIR products, but haven’t tried any of them yet. Maybe this will be my first purchase!

    Love the lace top, so pretty! And you totally can pull of the jogger pants. I’m on the fence because sometimes girls look MC Hammerish in them and that’s sooooo 1990s ;)!

    WEEEEE! I love that picture. SO happy you have such an amazing support system. Wedding week is the best!

    Awe, what a neat surprise!! That lace top is awesome! I have a few I like, and my fav is layered over a sweatshirt, so comfy.

    Love that your PB fam made you feel so special yesterday! YAY for joggers!! I love wearing them paired with heels too. So comfortable!

  6. February 17, 2015 / 1:18 PM

    Look at you- teaching in a veil! That was sweet of your team to doll you up for your last pre-wedding class! :)

    Girl, joggers are the jam. They definitely look good best with heels, but I’m sorta excited to wear ’em with flat gladiator sandals or Birk’s come spring, too.
