The Blogger Dress

My sister Tabitha and I have come to call this dress “the blogger dress”. It earned its name when the last Nordstrom anniversary sale happened. The dress wasn’t on sale but almost ALL of the bloggers we follow were wearing and talking about this dress by Leith. When I finally went to Nordstrom to try it on I understood why. This is probably the best dress I have ever owned. All the other bloggers kept talking about how great the fit was and how the ruching in the front covers any bloating or lack of abs. They were absolutely right. I feel so comfortable and good in this dress. It is long enough for work but still short enough to dress it up to go out. The crossed V front makes it a little sexy without being inappropriate. The best part is I feel like I can be relaxed in it and not worry about sucking it in all night or pulling it down so my butt doesn’t show like in a typical body-con. I am tall, like around 5’8″, and I can still wear a small in this dress and not worry about it being short. I already have it in black and this peach color, but I still want to get it in the navy… and possibly the green. It is just so versatile! It can seriously be worn for any occasion. Like below I just wore it with cheetah espadrille mules from Target to keep it casual to walk around Fremont Street. If you are looking for a good fitted dress I promise you, go try this on and you’ll probably want to buy it.

Baseball Season is Here!

It’s time for one of my favorite seasons, BASEBALL! There is almost nothing better than sitting in a stadium with a drink in your hand, a hot dog in the other, and rooting for your home team… the Angels of course!

Baseball season is also a great excuse to go on a date, whether it is your hubby, boyfriend/manfriend, or someone you are just getting to know. I mean I’ve gone with friends, family, a first date, and it’s actually where I met my boyfriend. I mean what guy doesn’t love baseball?!

I have seen many different styles showcased at The Big A, from girls in dresses and heels, to shorts, sandals, and crop tops. I personally like to usually go with my vans, converse, or rainbows; or in my case my pink Adidas. These three shoes are great for walking around the stadium, and aren’t too heavy if it is hot outside. Nothing is worse than having hot feet!

What I wear for bottoms are usually jeans or jean shorts, sometimes I roll the ankle if I need to try to get a breeze. I have occasionally worn white shorts but be careful if you do because they can get dirty easily. My tops vary, I used to have a kids’ jersey because it was a give away, but you can find kid or adult jerseys many places; they are just a little pricey if you aren’t a diehard. I usually go with an Angels shirt, which I found at Target and Old Navy. The one from Old Navy is a great material and works for day or night. I also have gone with plain color shirts or tanks and then added a bow or hat of the Angels. I personally love hats, but I almost ALWAYS wear them backwards, there is just something I love about it at a baseball game.

Lastly, do not forget your team jacket or a team blanket if you are going to a night game. Or any jacket and blanket will do but it is more fun to have a team on it!

My rule for baseball dates is the simpler the better; guys aren’t going to games to stare at you, so keep it to team themed clothes or do colored tops that are the same as the baseball team you are going for. You will fit in, be comfy, and hopefully actually enjoy yourself!

Walking Your Dog in Style

Taking your dog on a walk definitely counts as your daily exercise when your workout of choice is ATHLEISURE. Style burns twice as many calories as…Anyways, Kaipo and I love our walks in Rancho Cucamonga with our other pack mate Nick. We always have to stop by Klatch Coffee for some caffeine-I mean pre-workout.

Last week we had a beautiful sunny Monday, but it was actually so cold (60 degrees!). This outfit was perfect for battling the California winter chill, breathable leggings, warm long sleeve, and a cute headband!

I am a loyal Lululemon shopper when it comes to my everyday essentials, but I’m looking to branch out! What are your daily athleisure essentials or other brands that you love? Comment and let me know where I should be shopping for my next look!

All from Lululemon:

  • Leggings (similar, mine are High Rise Luxtreme Wunder Unders)

  • Headband (on sale!)

Happy Wednesday! – Kristen

Knotted Maxi

This is the third dress I got from ToSave and I am obsessed! It is my favorite which is why I saved it for last. I have been wanting to try this knotted maxi style for a while now, but now that I have I feel like I want to wear it every day. It is so comfy! The best outfits sometimes are the ones that look cute but feel like pajamas. I look like I am dressed up but really I am wearing an almost mumu/nightgown. Also, it has pockets! Enough said.

This dress comes in six different colors and is only $11.11! The last two dresses I got in a medium but since this one is like a tee shirt I didn’t want it to look too big, so I got it in a small and it looks perfect! The length was also good for me being tall. It is linked here, check it out!
