Pumped Up Kicks & Two Dresses

Hello my reader friends! What a joy it is for me to share life and style with you here on the blog, and of course see yours as well. Today I'm featuring a mix of athleisure and edgy, which are a couple of my favorites.

Dress 1: Camo Fun

This t-shirt dress is soft and it has pockets. I mean, really. Camo? Soft Fabric? Pockets? Roomy? What else do I need and can I complain about anything while wearing it? Ok, I will say that without my cutoff leggings underneath (I cut off a pair of black leggings for the perfect bicycle short fit!), I would feel vulnerable to breezes, sitting and entering or exiting a vehicle. That being said, I put those leggings on and went about my day, knowing that my underwear was safely hidden from the public; as it should be. ;)

As far as these Adidas kicks go, they are now my favorite casual sneaker.  I can't stop envisioning all the outfits I can wear them with! This morning I woke up and thought about a black and white stripe dress that it would be fun to sport them with. What is wrong with me??? I picked up these shoes, along with the wedges I recently featured at Rack Room Shoes. Their BOGO half off sale is going on, which I couldn't resist knowing that a gift card was waiting to be used in my wallet.

It goes without saying that these sneakers are comfortable and I love the leather look of them.

My mood was adventurous and I kept grabbing for more accessories to layer with this outfit.

Choker. Ouu, I like that. Let's see, how about some hematite thrown in? Oh yeah. Wait, I think I can add in a longer pop of silver. Finito!

The bracelet and the necklaces are apart of my new collection, so I couldn't wait to sport them. I love the mixed, hammered medals with a touch of femininity in the the sparkly stones. Yes I called them sparkly stones. It's also nice to have a thicker wrap that draws the attention to the smallest part of my body, like an arm party, without the work of an arm party!

Dress 2: Chambray Classic

Here's the other dress I styled these shoes with...

I love this classic chambray dress, which has been featured on the blog with a dressier look (check that out here).  This style came together quickly and easily, for an errands kind of day. There had been no time to wash and style my hair, so the cap was a no brainer!

Ok, if you made it this far, I will close with a little bit of silly cuteness. The cuteness is from my boys of course. ;)

We survived our first week of homeschool so I thought we should celebrate with iced coffee for mom and cupcakes for the boys!

Yes! We still go to splat! My year of free cupcakes isn't over yet!

Have a wonderful day!!



  1. Such a cute camo dress, and I love how you styled it with the sneakers! That chambray dress is such a great classic!

    1. Thank you Rachael! :) My fear now is I won't want to wear anything else. If I was to get a pair in white, my other shoes would be in trouble!

  2. First of all if I ever won a year of free cupcakes I'd think I died and went to Heaven! It's better than winning the lottery, no?
    Second of all, those boys of yours are seriously darling. Just like their momma!
    Third, those Adidas with the dresses = major love! You are rockin that look girl. Those bracelets from Premier are awesome, I have a thing for a good accessory!!!

    1. Thank you, thank you Kellyann. The cupcakes have been such a sweet adventure! No pun intended. Or maybe pun totally intended. ;)

  3. Are We on the same wavelength or what with the Adidas tennis shoes! You are such a doll, your style looks so effortless and you just shine in anything you wear! I see those boys get their megawatt smile's from mama! xo

    1. Haha! I laughed about us styling Adidas this week. :) Thank you for your kind words.
