But anywho, I love these crops! I don't think they really do anything for my legs, but the colors are gorgeous. I'm wearing it with my black swan crb and my long sleeve grey swiftly half zip. I also threw on my gratitude wrap as a coat since it is now "warm" here in the Windy City ;)

What do you wear when you are called over to watch nanny girl while her baby brother is born?? Well, the new pants you bought the night before, of course! I was so surprised when I found these at lulu, especially since it was super crowded and a Saturday night so they had been there for a couple days at least. I wish they had had a size down, but it's not the end of the world. I just wish they were a little more compressive. I technically bought them so I could decide over the next two weeks, but I am not terrific when it comes to rushing around trying to find something to wear and succumbed to the desire to rip the tags off. The same thing happened last fall when we had to rush home to see my mom in the hospital. I ripped the tags off and claimed emotional distraught made me do it ;)

Ummm this app is seriously amazing. Thanks to a tip from Superficial Endeavors I downloaded the app TalkTo. It is seriously brilliant. All you do is search a business, virtually any business, and send a text asking a question. You can message Walgreens asking if they still have a certain brand of cough syrup on sale. Like I said, it's brilliant. And it totally remedies my social awkwardness for calling lulu countless times asking if they have a certain item in! No more awkward calls with the same old same old "we get boxes in all the time, try back in a few days" answers.
Anywho, that prett much made my day ;) this was my outfit from yesterday... Grey Under crops in the organic cotton, and the every yogi tank? I honestly can't remember the name, but it has a scalloped hem that I have mixed feelings on. Overall I like the tank as it's quite light. I think it will mostly look good tho with a pair of jean shorts to be comfortable and casual but not in a crb.

Oh my goodness. My sister went a wee bit nutty for CAMO! She had the crops and tank from the release two years ago, but sold them a while back. I think she regrets selling, cause she is going all out this time. Thanks for sharing, Bee! Just don't wear it all at once.
Items are WUC, WUP, Forme, CRB, Flow Y bra, BangBuster, and Speed short.

I am so so close to doing a pull up! I practiced after bootcamp this morning and I can feel it. It's gonna be soon.
I wore my WAFS inkwell run inspires, Mint Moment CRB, Yellow Splits59 Ashby tank, and I got quite a few comments about my bright and cheerful outfit! Oh, and Mellow Lemon BangBuster. I got the Splits59 tank at Nordstrom Rack! I was so excited and didnt even bother trying it on. It's a large, and true to size. I would love to get some more of these.
P. S. Sorry for the bathroom pic!

I am seriously sick of this winter. They said today is the 59th day of snowfall. Which means we have had 2 months worth of days it is actually snowing and way more days of where there is snow on the ground. It really seems like this winter will never end. Thank goodness I have a countdown to Cali to look forward to!!!
Dear Olaf, please bring back summer!
Not only am I tired and crabby, sick of winter and dealing with my womanly monthly gift, it's also Wednesday. The middle of the week. Which makes getting dressed at 5:15 in the morning even more challenging because I really don't care. Today I wanted to be comfy! So I pulled out my fatigue green studio pants, plum crb and long sleeve cubs shirt. I love these pants. Studio pants are great for when you want to be comfy and slightly put together but not feel as restricted in the waistband area. I am also wearing my camo bang buster.. Love!

I'm not sure how or why lulu has so much power over me. Like enough power for me to get up at midnight and then stay up until 1 trying to get my order to go thru. Simply crazy. The real kicker, after being up for hours, getting beyond pissed at the website for being such a pain in the ass and then finally getting my order thru.. The camo crops weren't even sold out this morning!
For the month of March I'm going to try and do abs/arms/legs during the day while at the nanny house so that way all I have to do at home is run. And by arms and legs I mostly mean body weight exercises like push-ups, planks, dips, etc. I've found some pretty good routines on Pinterest I'm excited to try. Even tho that means bringing even more clothes to work I think it should work out well. Ignore my pasty gams, they haven't seen the sun since this eternal winter began.
I wore my grey speeds, which even tho they are too short for casual wear, I don't mind wearing them when it's just me and an 18 month old ;) I like how they have the black trim, plus they are super soft just like the plain black speeds. I also wore my black CRB and plum stripe ftb (I forget the real color names).
Since it is the eternal winter my base layers today for to and fro include my cadet LS swiftly, WU crops and uggs.

I snapped a pic of my sis today at the park! She's wearing her Fatigue Mula jacket, Coco Pique WUP, Wee stripe Ghost CRB, and Camo BangBuster. Super cute, and perfect for chasing tiny people around.
