Where your TO DO list didn’t get anything crossed off of it, even though you WERE IN FACT doing things all day long.
That was my day yesterday.
For example, my To Do list had “take pics for white, black, and cognac post” written on it.
But guess what.
That did NOT happen.
It actually didn’t even come close to happening.
Because you know what else didn’t happen?
I didn’t shower until like 10:00 p.m.
Even though I worked out at like 1:30 p.m.
And even though I smelled for like 8 hours.
Yes, it was one of those days.
Maybe if I would have had “shower” written on my To Do list I might have had a better shot at it, because OH MY WORD how I love to cross things off the list.
Live and learn.
In fac, sometimes I write things down on my list after I’ve already completed the task, just so I can cross it off.
The post I had planned for today has been moved to Monday.
Just roll with it. 🙂
I feel quite sure I will be able to shower and get fixed between now and then.
So today is going to be kind of like a Friday Favorites post.
I thought about calling it Wednesday Wants or Wednesday Wish List….
but neither of those things made since because I actually already own the items I’m going to be talking about today.
So I’m going to call it “It’s Wednesday, and maybe if you feel like it you should WANT or WISH for some of these things that I already have and love.”
I’m not calling it that.
But it does do a nice job of conveying what today’s post is about.
Andrea, if you want to make a graphic, go for it. 🙂
So without further ado…….
here are some things for you to check out……
I wore this first outfit twice this week.
Once on Saturday to a kid’s birthday party, and then again on Monday to speak at a MOPS group in Richardson (shout out First Methodist Richardson MOPS girls)! 🙂
What’s that? You don’t ever wear things twice in one week? Yeah, me neither.
The outfit consists of 4 main pieces: my newest pair of Vigoss jeans, an anthro top, my Old Navy military jacket, and my nude patent flats. It was so easy to throw on, but I felt really cute and put together in it!
For size reference, I’m wearing a small in the Anthro tunic and the Old Navy military jacket.
The tunic has great detail on it. The light blue on top is a chambray, and there is also ribbon detailing up top. The bottom obviously has a lace band. So many great details make the top worth the extra money in my eyes. I got soooo many compliments on it!
And the jacket is just straight up awesome.
You know I have 4 military jackets and adore them all, but this is the one I am grabbing all the time right now. It comes in this military green, but it also comes in a dark khaki and a mid-tone chambray!

Let’s take a closer look at the earrings HERE
These babies are $12.
That’s right, you heard me. TWELVE DOLLARS.
LIKE ONE LESS THAN THIRTEEN.
Circle hoops AND turquoise accents. Yes, please.
HEADS UP GIRLS!
When linking these items on facebook this morning, I realized that the nude patent flats are ON SALE! When you put them in your cart, they show $59.21…and they are regularly $78.95!
They are fully stocked now, so click HERE if you want to check them out!
If you are new to the blog, you can click HERE to read through the last 9 week of my Get Healthy Journey! I’ve been super dedicated (with a small amount of french fries and Taco Bueno thrown in for good measure – a girl has GOT TO LIVE), and I’m really pleased with my results!
I’m still a huge fan of my Zella live in leggings and capris (I adore THESE and am thinking I’ll ask for them for my birthday!), but as far as tops go, I’ve been open to trying new things. I loved this “hourglass” top I picked up from Macy’s!
idealogy tank from Macy’s HERE (on sale!)/ zella live in leggings HERE / nike free sneakers HERE (my exact ones are sold out, but the ones linked come in 3 awesome colors!)
For size reference, I’m wearing a small in both the tank and the leggings.
So, I took this next picture right after Heather and I did an upper body strength training AND Gamma. Let the record show, when I do Gamma my face turns a really dark shade of red (almost purple really), and it takes at least an hour to return to it’s normal color.
It’s awesome. Except the exact opposite.
And I promise I didn’t start with my hair in a side ponytail, but it almost always ends up that way.
And in case you are wondering, I just learned how to invert the pic like this on my phone to do side by sides like this one. I promise I won’t be doing it a lot :), but it was too good of an opportunity to pass up with the side ponytail!
tank HERE / shorts from Target HERE (the coral pair I’m wearing is sold out, but other colors are available) / nike free sneakers HERE (my exact ones are sold out, but these come in 3 awesome colors!)
Here’s a closer up look at the tank and shorts.
The “hourglass” effect the tank has with the colors in the middle and the black on the sides is pretty much GENIUS. All clothes need this feature.
And the shorts are fantastic.
Flattering AND Comfy. Two things work out shorts MUST be.
Since I started the GET HEALTHY journey, I’ve tried on lots and lots of shorts, and these from Target are BY FAR my favorite! They are also the cheapest!
Thanks for the recommendation Heather!!!!

And for some NEW SALE items (all items we’ve talked about before that are NOW ON SALE)…
If you follow me on facebook (you can do so HERE), then last night you got a sneak peek of these next two items that are NOW ON SALE!
First up, Nordstrom is price-matching, and there are LOTS of Kendra Scott goodies on sale!
You can find the Rayne necklaces HERE.
Elle earrings HERE (these are my favorite size).
And the Morgan Studs are HERE.
But again, to see all of the sale items Kendra has to offer, click HERE.
I had a couple of people ask me about the shirt on facebook last night.
WELL. If you are new here, it’s time to catch you up to speed.
This shirt is THE MUST HAVE shirt (found HERE).
JUST TRUST AND GET IT.
But make sure you order a size down (I’m wearing an x-small), and I only recommend black. The other colors are pretty (and believe me…I wish I had other colors), but they all seem to wrinkle too much.
The plus size version of the MUST HAVE shirt is available HERE.
And this version is 40% OFF!
And thanks to Jenn, I also found out that MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE GORJANA HOOPS are ON SALE! Looking back, I really should have made these earrings a MUST HAVE.
They are so simple (and not cheap), so I didn’t name them a MUST HAVE because I felt like people might roll their eyes.
Big Mistake on my part. BIG. HUGE.
I WEAR THEM CONSTANTLY. LIKE AT LEAST 3x per week EVERY WEEK.
So they are without a doubt a MUST HAVE for ME! 🙂
Click HERE for the earrings.
They are lightweight and delicate, but large enough that they still make a statement!
(Just fyi, a couple of girls mentioned on facebook that they have all 3 colors: the gold, rose gold, and silver.) No judgement here girls. I get it. 🙂
Click HERE for the other Gorjana items that are included in the sale.
(Fyi: In case you are interested, I’m wearing the Wit and Wisdom MUST HAVE jeans found HERE.
For size reference, some people got their typical size, and some people sized down.)
I went through the blog and grabbed the first 5 images I could find with me wearing the earrings.
Told you I was obsessed….
And the site says that the gold Kate Spade Glitter Studs are back AND ON SALE.
I’m afraid that by the time this post goes live they will already be gone, but I wanted to give it a try!
Click HERE for the gold glitter studs.
(And lots of other Kate Spade studs are also on sale HERE.)
The MUST HAVE Hue ultra wide waistband leggings are also on sale.
For size reference, I wear a small.
I prefer the grey to the back. I feel like they do a better job sustaining their color over time.
Sadly, all of these tunics are sold out, but I wanted you to see lots of different ways I’ve worn
the leggings! Click HERE for them.
In fact, Nordstrom seems to be on PRICE MATCHING SPREE!
It’s a PRICE MATCHING BONANZA if you will. 🙂
