SPANX obsessed

H A P P Y   F R I D A Y !!!

woohoo!!! we made it through another week.. and let me just say i've had one heck of a week.. not really sure why - - i did have a looooong and not great day at work the other day and i've just been so exhausted. probably a mix of being pregnant, chasing and entertaining a toddler, the heat wave and sleeping so late. i really need to get in a better rhythm buuuuut there is just so much to do so little time. i find myself catching up with everything and doing my "me-time" at night. anywho trying to find some balance.. and i'm not gonna lie, i'm a little nervous because if i'm having a little difficulty finding balance now with just one baby..what's in going ti be like with TWO?! haha this will be interesting but i am super excited to meet this little man... just a few more months! so CRAZY!!!

anywho, i just want to share the ONE piece that i got from the nordstrom anniversary sale that i am COMPLETELY IN LOVE WITH! its so funny because when i went to the sale bright and early on the first day of early access and tried on a bunch of stuff i was obsessed with this free people sweater that sold out so fast and has beeing coming in and out of stock all sale long.. and yes i still love this sweater.. A LOT... these SPANX faux leather leggings are just MY JAM! they are so comfortable, they suck you in and so flattering on like everyone. i don't know about you but i live for leggings, especially in the fall and winter and especially being pregnant. they're just easy and comfy and thats what i'm all about -- so of course i had to have these and once i tried them on i knew these would be my go-to all fall and winter long. i had to stop myself from buying two more pairs -- i'm not really sure why i did that because i know i will be living in them and why not have two more as back up -- what if baby c threw up on them and i had no time for laundry?! ahhh !!! ok sorry i'm rambling.. anyway i have been raving about these leggings for like two weeks now on my instagram and instatories so i thought i would do a blog post and share some of the ways i plan on wearing them.. sadly they are sold out at nordstrom, but i found a couple more retailers that have them in stock and let me tell ya -- THEY ARE WORTH EVERY PENNY! 

|| LOOK ONE ||

athleisure -- if you know me, then you know how much i love athleisure looks. they're super easy and comfrotable and just plain cool without trying to hard. and they are the perfect outfits for running from A to B to C especailly with little kiddos! this outfit is probably on of my favorites and will be on repeat for sure!

|| LOOK TWO ||

easy transitional look for fall. it doesn't get super chilly right away here in san diego for fall.. it takes a while to cool down but evenings tend to get chillier so leggings with a lightweight sweater or cardigan are perfect. and i don't know about you but i LOVE love LOVE striped tees..actually anything stripes -- my all time favorite pattern and even my hubby gives me a hard time when i show him a tee or sweater that's striped.. he's always like "don't you have something like that?!" and i'm like, "no its different and i need this one" hahahaha! so striped tees are my go-to. love this one with the leggings and cardi -- also tan/camel and black color combo is my FAVORITE for fall.. so i am loving this look!

all i can say is you can never wrong with plaid especially in the fall -- i love plaid tops -- wear it open over a tee or tank, buttoned up, half tuck it, wrap it around your waist -- so versatile and easy. kinda did a little two in one here by throwing on a denim jacket -- another favorite closet staple -- denim jackets look good with everything and perfect all year long! also had to play up the cool factor with my platform old school sneakers that i love!

if you haven't noticed, comfy and casual and easy looks are what i love for.. as much as i love being super girly and glam, i love being comfortable especially now that i am a mom.. i need to be able to move around and get things done so i love effortless looks that are still cute and on-trend. so this look you'll most definitely see over and over again -- this wrap top is versatile and can be worn several ways and i think it will be great for nursing!

ok what more can i say.. lounging around look, running errands, easy outfit for cooler weather.. this poncho is the softest, coziest thing everrrrrr and this is in my top three for purchases from the NSALE.. it is now sold out sadly, but i will link from other retailers.. another piece i would defintiely splurge on!
