Lace, Coral and Do You Boo!

Happy Thursday friends! I hope that your week is going awesome as we all prepare for the long holiday weekend. Our company has an early release tomorrow so it will end up being a 3 1/2 day weekend! Much needed and definitely deserved. I have not been up to much this week. On Tuesday, I had to do a presentation for one of the assets in my portfolio and it went very well. I kept it short, sweet and to the point. The individuals I was presenting to only ended up having one question...which made me feel very well prepared. This was the first time since I have worked for my company that I didn't wear a collared shirt or a suit to present. 4+ years with the same company...I feel I have earned the right to be unapologetically myself as long as I continue to work hard. I wore a coral dress from Target (here) and paired it with an embellished belt from Nordstrom that I purchased earlier this year. 

I have been working out a lot this week to try to meet my goal weight and body fat percentage prior to our honeymoon to St. Lucia. It has taken a lot of discipline to stick to my workouts and my eating plan. Although I worked out yesterday morning, babe asked if I wanted to go on a long walk when he got home from work. I agreed! Decided to throw on my 'Do You Boo!' shirt from Shameless Maya with my workout leggings from VS (here). I love that these workout leggings also come in tall for us taller women! :) Super comfy for a walk in 88+ degree weather! 

By today, my hair is sweated out...so its in a top knot today until I feel up to washing it! Since it has grown out a lot, I have many more options for styling my hair! Today, I am wearing my lace top from Express that I picked up a couple months ago with an old statement necklace from J. Crew that I bought last year. On my lips is Kate Spade SUPERCALIFRAGILIPSTICK! in Fanciful Merlot (here). It is a beautiful raspberry red! You all know red lipsticks are my favorite of all time! 

P.S. My favorite hot weather drink at Starbucks is the iced Chai Tea Latte with soy milk...topped with a sprinkle of cinnamon! More flat tummy friendly than my usual White Chocolate Mocha or Caramel Frap!

Let me know if I left any outfit deets out that you are interested in! 

Until next time....STAY BEAUTIFUL!
