I haven’t participated in this link up in awhile because of my Bachelor in Paradise recaps, but today is What’s Up Wednesday with Shay and Mel!
Please join us and let everybody know
WHAT’S UP with you this fine Wednesday!
I’ve been trying to get off a couple of extra pounds that have crept up on me (just like they ALWAYS do), so I’ve been having my Spark in the mornings (pink lemonade is still my favorite), protein shakes every day for lunch, and fresh fruit or veggies for a snack.
The shakes are delicious, but I would much prefer a taco.
I received a Facebook message from Charlene F. (a sweet reader) with the following picture of a group of friends on a girl’s weekend before one of them has a baby!
And y’all, Barefoot Dreams has come out with some new items.
THIS is called a circle cardigan.
And let’s be honest. It’s on it’s way to me. I have SERIOUSLY high hopes.
And it better be magical, because it’s $116. #ouch
I’m hoping it’s flattering and will look great with leggings and jeans!!!
I hope to have a picture of it for y’all on Friday’s post!!!!!!!!
THIS one is a poncho.
And this is a cozied up and chic version of a velour jumpsuit.
Click HERE for the pants and HERE for the hoodie.
This would definitely only be for lounging around in your house.
I love it. And I felt cozier than I’ve ever felt in my whole life when I put it on.
But DANG it’s expensive.
So, I’m planning on keeping the pants (because y’all just don’t understand how comfy they are), but taking back the hoodie (I didn’t feel like it was super flattering). I figure I’ll just wear my blardigan with the pants!
Last Friday we took Carter to a high school football game and had a blast!
Every single time we stood up, Carter would stand in between us (standing on the bleachers) and put his arms around both of us. He has such a sweet and loving little heart.
Let me remind you, ALL 4 are comfy. They really are.
I simply don’t wear shoes that aren’t.
However, if I were to assign levels of comfort,
this is how the cards would fall.
1) Leather Felicia flats
2) Leopard Felicia flats
3) nude patent flats and 4) pointy toe flats
So like I said, there’s been a lot of chatter over my flats Comfort Level rating scale.
I had 2 readers say that they had all 4 pairs of flats highlighted in the graphic (the 3 of us are now besties by the way) ;), and they completely agreed with my ratings!
Again, all of them are reallllllllly comfy, but there is still a hierarchy. 🙂
Here are some of the comments I received…as well as a reader question that I answered.
Schaefer, a million thanks for the Sam Edelman Felicia flat tip. My job has me running through airports a lot and these keep me comfy and stylish. I think dear Sam “gets” me since I also have a pair of Sam Edelman calf hair camo heels that never fail to get compliments. They make a work outfit way more interesting yet are surprisingly neutral.
And here’s the reader question:
I’ve been ordering, trying on, and photographing lots of tunics for you ladies over the last 2 weeks!
I even have some great plus size tunics as well as some options for you tall girls!
GET READY TO TALK TUNICS!
(I hope to have a sneak peak of a tunic outfit on Friday!)
And OH MY at the ideas he had during the session.
First of all, he requested to bring a Nerf gun and wanted to make sure we grabbed a couple of shots of him with the gun.
I’m not kidding.
Can you imagine that Christmas card?!? 🙂
WHAT I’M WATCHING
A couple of weekends ago Carter’s team played 4 games in a pre-season tournament, and since then he’s had 2 games per week.
My friend Laura Tye‘s son (she’s a photographer as well!) is on the team,
and she took these at one of the last games.
Aren’t they good?!?
Thank you Laura!!!
Carter just yelled “You’re going down”.
Like more than should be social acceptable for sure.

And I kept THESE jeans.
I couldn’t help it.
They made my hiney look as good as I think I can ever expect it to look.
And they make my legs look looooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnnngggggggg.
That is worth $59.
I’m wearing a 27, so I think they are true to size.
So it’s our 20 year high school reunion.
Here are some some pics from my high school days.
(Fyi: The top I’m wearing totally covers my crotchal area, but I wanted y’all to see the wide waistband and where they sit on my waist.)
I have both the grey and the black, but I wear the grey WAY MORE.
I’ve had the pair in this pic for 2 years I think.
They are opaque, they don’t show through at all, they don’t pill, they don’t sag, and they don’t fade. (I have heard reports from people that the black ones do begin to fade after many washes.) But the best part of these leggings is the ultra wide waistband.
It sucks in your tummy without creating a muffin top, not that any of us would know anything about that! 🙂
I’m 5’4″, usually a 27 (or a 4), and I wear a small in these. They are quite long on me….like several inches too long (which is great news for you tall girls!!!!), but I only wear them with tall boots, so I just cuff them up and tuck them in. If you wear them with flats you could always get them hemmed.
Sound off in the comments with your thoughts on these leggings because I know a ton of you have them! In fact, when I put them on facebook yesterday, LOTS of people left their RAVING reviews! Click HERE to read through them!
One reader left a great tip:
My black ones haven’t faded or pulled in two years- machine wash delicate and hang dry with all my yoga pants!
– Karen C.
And like I said, next Friday I’m doing a post on tunics, so you better go ahead and get your leggings today if you don’t already have them because I will be wearing them in every single picture!
Not a thing.
Same ol’ same ol’ over here, which is just how I like it!
Last year we went to our old neighborhood (even though we were already in the new house). People in the old neighborhood really go all out, so we might go there again this year too!
In addition to the leggings, LOTS of other items are being price matched right now at Nordstrom.

LOTS of sunglasses (ray-bans, kate spade, marc jacobs, etc…)
