Stripes and Healthy Goals

Here are just a few things I've been loving lately...Photobucket Stripes. Now don't get me wrong, I don't love all things striped. I'm still quite particular about the colors involved and the widths and the overall fit of the striped garment. However, if used correctly, stripes can be incredibly flattering.Photobucket 
Stripes on feathered earrings? Yes please...this particular pair was a Christmas gift from my sister. They effortlessly add a playful pop to any date night outfit.PhotobucketLastly, I'm loving my new workout shoes. The bottoms are wonderfully flexible, awesome for running, walking, and all around exercising. This reminds me...I need to give an update on my weekly health goals I've been implementing since January first...

You may remember: 

Week 3 - I unfortunately didn't have a new healthy focus this week...
Week 4 - Exercise six days. I never blogged about this goal, but I did achieve it last week and I'm pressing on... 

Wednesday I'll write more about my healthy habit goal for week five. I can hardly believe February is nearly here.

I hope you've had a lovely January.

Lots of love,


  1. Ha! I was just thinking about posting how addicted I am to certain stripes lately! Especially navy and white nautical stripes! I know they have been around forever, but in the past I've never been a huge fan and now I am falling in love with them!

  2. I love that striped top! I agree, stripes can be iffy, but you've definitely pulled them off with that outfit! I'd love to hear more about your healthy goals. I really need to get back on track as far as exercise goes! If you need an accountability buddy let me know! I sure could use one myself! :)

  3. So pretty in stripes too!!! Love that lipstick girl...

    My daughter is obsessed with stripes!!!

  4. Cuuuute! And glad to hear you're keeping up with your healthy goals! I've been doing pretty good on food... not so much on exercise. baby steps!

  5. you are so tiny! (: i love the stripes. you pull them off perfectly.

    i also love your new running shoes! i just bought me some and i'm having to break them in. (: so far, so good.

    thanks for your comment on my outfit post! you just don't know how much it means to me that you thought Ann Voskamp and my writing styles were similar! that really, really means alot.


  6. i looooove stripes on feather earrings!!!

  7. you look great in stripes girl! I have one white and red striped top I LOVE, I need to get more! xoxo

  8. I love your new running shoes! I need some new ones as well! Sounds like you have some great goals for the new year, I will be sure to tune in more often and maybe I can pick up on a few!

  9. such an good idea having weekly goals rather than just one resolution for the whole year. im going to try it. especially when it comes to health. love those earrings. how awesome.

    im following :) x

  10. Stripes are so fun. I'm pretty picky about the colors and fit when it comes to wearing them though. Your workout shoes are so cute! Love the pink. :)

  11. I LOVE stripes... but I agree- they have to be somewhat skinny, but not too skinny to actually be flattering- thick stripes make YOU look thick, and so-thin {practically lines} give me a headache when I look at them. :)

    And I agree- I need SLEEP {going to bed at 1 or 2 and waking up at 5:30 or 6 am is just not healthy,} drink more water {SO bad at this... I think I am beyond dehydrated most of the time... really bad,} and work out {I hate it because it hurts my knee--- I have osteochondritis in my left knee- awesome... debilitated at 18.}

    Great post.


  12. The feather earrings?! I want them! They remind of what Aria on Pretty Little Liars wears.


I delight in what you have to say, so comment away...
