Some Springtime Obsessions…Like, Seriously-It’s-Prob Kinda Obsessions

The Skinny Confidential talks springtime.

I love black and white…everything.

I really, honestly can’t help it.

So the other day I had a one of those moments ( I know you alllllll can relate on this one ) where I walked over to my closet & threw every single item on the floor that wasn’t black or white. And then I asked myself: “are you actually really going to wear this?” I’m always trying to justify clothes that need to get out of my closet ASAP. For instance: ‘I may need those khaki pants because I possibly could go camping.’ Like, no- it was time to get real. I’m not going camping anytime soon so buh-bye khakis.

& hello clean, mostly black & white closet.

Anyway, here’s what I’m dying over for spring & summer:

1.} White pumps get me. If I were a shoe, I’d for sure be a white pump. They’re so hot with jeans, a summer romper, &/or a super long maxi.

2.} Jumpers!!! Ahh. They’re so fun for a date night or a girl’s night out. I feel like they’re super chic but doesn’t give off that ‘I’m trying too hard vibe.’ This Flynn Skye one stole my heart ( plus it’s on sale on Shopbop ( << my absolute favorite store ) for the next two days for 25% off, woot-woot ).

3.} I can’t deal when I go on a spontaneous road trip & have a crappy bag. This weekender bag is under $25 bucks & literally is to die.

4.} A crop top x a maxi skirt are my go-to. Jessica Alba just rocked the hottest crop to the MTV Awards, so I’m all about the crop + a sexy skirt.

5.} WWOD? AKA ‘What would Olsen’s do?” They’re all for nude nails & a fierce lip lately. I’m loving this polish shade called ‘Spin the Bottle’ & this lipstick called ‘Candy Yum-Yum.’

Anything I’m missing? Tell, tell.

P.S. a lot of this swag is from Shopbop…& they’re having a maj sale. Check it:

Ahhh– it’s official: spring is finally here!

Cha-ching!

As you guys know I’m a huge fan of black, grey, white but a lil color during springtime never hurt a flea.

So today I’m excited to share the new periwinkle Reebok #Skyscape kicks I’ve been rocking! They’re super comfortable/lightweight & add that pop of color to my normal black/grey/white get-up. Also, for extra flair I added a gold ankle bracelet.

Side note: tennis shoes are making a major comeback— I’m so over ten inch heels that kill my feet, ESP in hot weather. Tennis shoes are sexy in an understated way.

Don’t believe me? Welp, believe Miranda Kerr then:

Just A Little Monday Motivation

The Skinny Confidential gives advice for getting off your ass!

I saw this quote on Instagram the other day & it popped out at me like gnarly-ass ‘Jack in the Box.’

Why?

Well, duh, since I’m a girl, I bitch.

I bitch at my boyfriend for leaving the toilet seat up ( like, honestly…how hard is it to close the lid when you’re done? I mean at 2 am the other night, I literally fell in. Sick. ), at the annoying driver who cut me off, & I obviously bitch about “Real Housewives” to anyone who’s willing to listen.

But what about bitching about more serious stuff? You know, you know, like:

♡ Your body
♡ Calories/food/what’s in the fridge/etc.
♡ A shitty job
♡ Not enough sleep
♡ A toxic “friend”
♡ A negative living situation

Here’s the deal: all of the above are dictated by you.

That’s right: you & only you. You’re kinda all you got when it comes to changing the above negative situations in your life.

So, let’s discuss. Ahem:

|| Your body || get off the couch & move! Run, swim, dance, walk, hike, etc. No one’s going to change your exercise routine ( or body ) for you.

|| Food || no one is forcing you to eat crap. Find creative ways to eat clean. If there’s a will, there’s a way. Stock your fridge with healthy options, pack your lunch, & use portion controlled bowls.

|| A shitty job || having a shitty job makes you miserable in other areas of your life. Rectify the situation ASAP. Start finding other avenues to make cash, put the word out that you’re in the market for a new job, &/or send out your resume…anywhere & everywhere.

|| Not enough sleep || when people tell me they don’t sleep, I don’t think it’s cool. I don’t think it’s commendable. I don’t think think it makes them a hard worker who’s a total go-getter. Sleep is essential for healing. It heals your cells. Sleep makes you a better person. Figure out ways to sleep, sleep, sleep. Seriously. Sleep= happier life.

|| A toxic friend || say no, say no, say no. Read more on the power of no here. Start cutting any negative energy out to make more room for good people. Because honestly? There are a lot good, good people. And who has time for poisonous people? Buh-bye!

|| A negative living situation || don’t stay in a crappy living situation. Once I had a roommate who stole from me…it happened one time & I immediately moved out ( she literally stole all my handbags…). I was young, broke, & just starting out…but it didn’t matter: I booked my ass out of that two bedroom & figured out a Plan B. In my opinion, living in a negative situation is bad for your health. But really, being comfortable in your living space provides peace of mind.

Seriously though, lately my motto is: absolutely no bitching if I choose to keep myself in an unhealthy situation…anyone with me?

( Does being around someone who leaves the toilet seat up count? Technically it’s not very healthy if I fall in…hint, hint babe ).

So. On that note, thank God it’s Sunday because Monday’s fresh start. A clean slate. A time to look forward, not backwards.

Go kill it tomorrow. xx. L
