Bladies!!

If you follow me on Instagram, you have probably seen I have been rollerblading. Yes rollerblading! I am not even sure exactly how it came up but earlier this month Kristen, my fellow blader and I, went to our other friend’s, Theresa, son’s first birthday party. On our drive home we talked about rollerblading and before we knew it, the next day we were at Big 5 Sporting Goods buying blades! We had to go to two different Big 5s to find them and were so excited we immediately took them for a spin. There is a bike trail that goes through our city and through a couple neighboring ones. We parked at one of the entrances and took off! We were a little wobbly and flail-y but we did it and now that is all we want to do every day. I couldn’t believe how fun it was and is, I don’t remember it being so relaxing. The first night we went 3 miles and didn’t even realize it! I love that it is a workout but it doesn’t feel like one. Well sometimes, the father we go the more hills we find and realize our buns are burning on the way back up. Our last go we went 8.3 miles! Each time we try to go at least a little further. It is usually around 6-6:30 by the time we go. At that time it is getting cooler and the sun is setting. I have already said it but is really is so relaxing. Just getting outside in the fresh air, you cannot help but smile after being cooped up all day.

The coolest thing about it though, besides the workout and therapeutic qualities, is what it is starting. Kristen and I took a bunch of short videos on our Insta stories and I ended up making a video for IGTV (watch it here), and we both got a couple messages from other girls who want to join us! The next time we went we already had a new bladie! Holly had dug up her blades and came out with us. Now my older sister bought some (we just broke her’s in last night, she is a little shaky but will get back in the groove!), and two other girls want to buy some and join too! I feel like we really might be starting something here! We keep calling ourselves the bladies or babes on blades. I am going to be so excited if more babes start joining us. You just wait, soon there we be neighborhood complaints about the lady blade gang, it is going to be awesome!

I linked our blades below, it is crazy that Kris and I have already put 35.7 miles on these guys! They are much more comfortable than I remember as a kid, maybe because these ones, tie and buckle, not just buckle all the way up. I also linked my palm print workout outfit, they are new and I love them! If you are local to Rancho Cucamonga come join us! If not, seriously get some blades and start up where you are, you will love it!

Sprinkle Tank!

Happy Monday! Hopefully everyone had a great weekend. Mine was good and bad. Bad because I had a massive headache both days, but good because I got to celebrate one of my best friend’s son’s first birthdays and yesterday one of my other best friends and I bought rollerblades!! Haha yes rollerblades. We are now “The Bladies” and are going to skate for fun and exercise #babesonblades. I forgot what a workout rollerblading is! My butt and thighs were tired right away. Anyone else still rollerblade? If this link works, this is my new video on IGTV for our first day blading: click here!

Anyways, for the party Saturday I wore this new tank I got and it is so cute! It looks like sprinkles or confetti. Throwing on a tank easy-tucked into high waisted shorts with some earrings, is such an easy outfit yet looks really put together. It is the perfect summer look. It’s casual but is not too dressed down. I didn’t actually wear these wedges to the party, I wore gold sandals, but that shows this look can really be styled either way. Brunch with the girlfriends calls for wedges, baby’s birthday party calls for sandals.

One of my girlfriends is super into camis right now and I think I am finally hopping on that train. I have this one but now I want more! Any suggestions on wear to get some good ones?
