Fashion Friday: The Puffer Vest

Happy Friday friends!  Today marks my LAST day of classes for 4th quarter.  Things got crazy real this week when I got my LAST class schedule for didactic year of PA School.  For those of you that aren’t familiar, PA school typically consists of a didactic year (ours is 15 months) spent primarily in the classroom.  Once didactic year is over you head to clinical rotations full time.  I am almost there.  Holy moly.

 

It’s been awhile thought since I posted one of my Fashion Friday outfits.  I have never ever in my life owned a puffer vest so this year I decided to take the plunge after seeing cute outfit after cute outfit with them.  I scored this awesome orange one at Old Navy and have had a lot of fun with it since!  This is on of my favorite layered looks for the cooler days here in Georgia!

The rest of the outfit I had in my closet so pulling it together was pretty easy.  I am a HUGE fan of collared shirts used in layers this year which makes my preppy side sing with joy.  Here are the details from the outfit:

I hope you have some fun things planned for your weekend!  I unfortunately will be studying my booty off for finals next week.  However, one week from today I will be on a three week break and heading home on vacation!  See you back here on Monday :)

Sweat To Street #6

Before we get into some fashion, I want to take a second and recognize that today is in fact Easter.  Being a Catholic, today is the most important day in the Church’s liturgical year.  I am so grateful that I have a God that loves me so much that He would give us His only son.  Jesus died so that we may live.  What greater gift is there than that?  Wishing you a very Happy Easter … remember that it’s more than painted eggs and chocolate bunnies.

 

I also just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for your amazing comments on my 6-month post-baby body update.  Your words seriously mean so much to me.  :)

 

Since our movers come tomorrow (holy cow) we are spending today getting ready.  The Army actually pays the movers to pack everything for us but we still have to do some of the work.  There are a few items the movers won’t take (like candles) so I have to get those wrapped up and packed.  I also have to get 2 weeks worth of clothes together for the whole family.  PCSing … fun times I tell you!  But, since it IS Sunday, it is time for another Sweat to Street fashion post!

SWEAT

 

TOP: Lululemon Cool Racerback

SHORTS: Nike Two-In-One Tempo Rack Shorts

SPORTS BRA: Nike Compression

SHOES: Brooks Adrenalines

 

These are one of my favorite pair of shorts to wear while running.  The built in compression shorts help minimize any chaffing and provide good coverage when I am lifting weights or doing ab work!

 

STREET

 

CARDIGAN: LOFT (similar)

TANK: J. CREW Perfect Fit Tank

INFINITY SCARF: LOFT (similar)

JEANS: Joe’s Jeans – Rocker

SHOES: Jessica Simpson

 

Casual outfit to wear to breakfast with Chris and my sorority sister Ashley.  These are the pre-pregnancy jeans I mentioned yesterday!  Unfortunately it appears that Joe’s no longer makes this cut and I am slightly devastated.  I have a REALLY hard time finding jeans that are long enough for me but also fit in the waist.  These ones were perfect.  Pricey … for sure.  But I bought them 4 years ago so they definitely have had a great life :)

 

EMMIE’S EASTER FASHION

 

DRESS: Baby GAP

 

When Chris’ mom was in town the other weekend she spoiled Em with a ton of clothes for summer and this adorable Easter dress.  My little bunny is going to look so cute at church today :)

 

I hope you are having a fabulous weekend so far!  Chaos is about to ensue over here … wish us luck!

 

Do you celebrate Easter?  What’s your favorite “go to” brand for workout clothes?

I am seriously obsessed with Baby Gap.  I try to shop for Emmie when things are on sale.  Needless to say she has quite a few 12-18 month outfits waiting to be worn because I got them so cheap!

What’s your favorite fashion trend this spring?

Style Sunday

As a new mom I find myself wearing either A. workout clothes or B. the same type of outfit around the house.

 

When I was college and then when I was a newlywed I prided myself on maintaing a great wardrobe and dressing cute every day … Now I need some motivation to dress up and look cute!  SO I am going to start posting some of my (and Emmie’s) favorite fashionista outfits from the week.  Maybe it will be the motivation I need to make sure I pull myself together more often 😉  I am sure Chris will appreciate it too haha.  PLUS some of my favorite FitFluential Ambassadors started a weekly link up: From Sweat to Street!  PERFECT timing for this mama :)  Make sure you link up here!
