What To Wear To A Summer Day Wedding

Summer wedding season is upon us! If you are anything like me, you might run into the same crowd from wedding to wedding, so it's important to have plenty of options so you don't get caught wearing the same thing back-to-back. 

Wedding attire can vary from day to night, or even location. If it's not specified on the wedding invitation, here are some general guidelines you can follow for a day time ceremony.

- no jeans or flip flops
- mid length or maxi dresses always work (nothing too short or too tight!)
- stick to easy breezy fabrics like sheer or cotton
- don't wear white (call me old fashioned, but I still think this color should be reserved for the bride)
- open toe sandals and NICE flat sandals are ok

Blue Romper

With the Independence Day around the corner, it seems appropriate that I would post about a blue romper. If you don't already know, I've been featuring previous 4th of July outfit inspo, on my feed all week.
Blue Romper - Triple Thread OC, c/o / Sandals (old) / SS Sunnies, c/o

So far, we've covered red and white, so now we've gotta cover blue! 

Anyone have any exciting plans for the weekend? We're heading to a friends to partay and then off to celebrate our 2 year anniversary on Sunday. Since we just got the puppy, we're staying local this year. I've never been to the top of Pikes Peak, so we've taking the cog up. We'll end the night at The Broadmoor. I'm sure I'll be posting all the BTS deets on Snapchap, so be sure to follow along! (username: leah_behr) 

Happy almost Friday! Woot-woot!

Healthy Snacks For The Girl On The Go

A GOTG (girl on the go) is often running from point a, to point b. She usually holds a pretty jam-packed schedule, and if she doesn't bring her lunch with her, most likely goes without eating. If this sounds like you, keep reading.
 
Recently I discovered nakd cereal bars by Natural Balance Foods, and they have been my life saver on busy days! It's always been so important to me to keep a balanced diet of WHOLE foods, which is something that is typically pretty lacking in a anything that comes in bar form. Nakd cereal bars are different, in that they are made 100% with REAL foods. Think dates, raisins and real cocoa. Every bar packs between 100-150 calories (perfect for snack!) and is free from gluten, dairy and added sugars. I got to sample the mixed pack, and so far I am loving the berry delight and cocoa crunch! 

What are some of your favorite snacks on the go?

lululemon

Staying active is so important to me. I work a very high stress job, and with trying to juggle all things work, blog, and play, stress can take a toll on me if I don't make the time to release it. That obviously is not always the easiest thing when your calendar is jam-packed, but I always feel so much better when I just make the time for it. Like they say, no body ever said, "I really regretted that workout."

Recently, I recommitted to myself to get back into a workout routine. Whether it's an hour long power yoga session, or a short jog in the neighborhood, I'm dedicated to getting back into shape. Not just for the physical aspect, but also for my mental game. Isn't it crazy how you feel after you just release some endorphins?! I've got to admit, I owe a large part of this change of mind to lululemon.


It's been proven that wearing cute workout clothes will make you want to work out. You'll feel good wearing them, and putting them on is really half the battle, isn't it? I'm increasingly less likely to skip out on a workout, if I've already taken the time to put my on workout gear. 

Lately I've been living in this outfit from lululemon. It's great for running, but what I'm really crazy about it how great this top and bottom are for yoga. 




The material and color pattern are a dream, but I am particularly crazy about the high waist. During a yoga class, I often find myself in a constant battle of pants vs. muffin top. Nothing is worse than a crescent lunge twist, when your pants decide to slide under your belly and your state of higher consciousness turns quickly to self-conscience.


 This tank is equally amazing. It is breathable (for the most sweaty moments) and the tank acts as a magnet when paired with these pants - meaning, the fabrics attract one another so that they stay in place!


Thanks so much to lululemon for the sweet gear. Honestly, the Colorado Springs store is one of the best around. Everyone that works there is sooooo sweet, and helpful, and you can tell their entire heart is in their job. They are opening up a new location soon at The Shops at Briargate, and I can't wait!

Stay tuned for more posts with lululemon, in the coming weeks.

Bridal Beauty

Our two year anniversary is approaching, which has me reminiscing about our wedding. I remember the way I felt walking down the aisle, the way my groom looked at me, the dress that I knew was made for me the second I tried it on, and how confident I felt because my hair and makeup were so "me". 

That was the key for me leading up to my wedding day. I wanted to "do me". I wanted to be classic, timeless and needed my gown, hair and makeup to work together to achieve that look. 

I'm sure by now, you all know my love for glo minerals. (And yes, I'm still addicted to their lip crayons.) With wedding season in full swing, the lovely people of glo minerals sent me this lovely bridal kit to sample - and I only wish I would have had this on my wedding day! 

The kit comes loaded with blotting papers, for oily skin, and translucent powder for touch ups. (That "2 o'clock feeling" still happens on your wedding day ladies!) The retractable brush is the perfect size, and I just can't get enough of the illuminating powder. I've been wearing it on my cheekbones, and even applying it to my eyes as a sparkly shadow.

My favorite part about this bag though, is the lip combo. Start with lipstick to get a good base going, then apply the gloss to complete the look. I've been wearing the lip gloss nonstop, on days I don't wear colored lips. 

Have any of you gals tried glo? They offer 15% off all orders with the code "eatpraywearlove15", so go ahead and give them a try!

Lace Kimono

Over the weekend we attended Colorado Collective's first farm-to-table dinner of the summer. (You may have saw me outfit planning.) This is what I ended up going with. 

Lace Kimono, c/o / Shorts via Sears, c/o (old) - similar / Target Tee / DV Booties - love these
Merona Hat via Target - super similar / SS Sunnies, c/o / Nakamol Bracelet / Other Bracelets/Earrings old

If you live in the Southern Colorado area and want to experience a farm-to-table dinner of your own (besides following my experience on snapchat) you get your tickets here. It's truly an experience like no other. If you have specific questions, I'd love to answer them for you, so feel free to ask in the comments below or tweet me (@eatpraywearlove).

By the way, did you see we got our puppy last night? To say we're excited, would be an understatement. They sure are a lot of work though! Brandon is having to keep a constant eye on him, just so I can get some work done. If you want your feed to be filled with cuteness, be sure to follow along @kygobehr.
