Cold Shoulder

You probably saw this look on IG earlier in the week, and it's safe to say you will see it a million times more because I am in love with it! I snagged this on a recent shopping spree at Shopbop for $15 on final sale! As you probably know, shen items are on final sale, you can't return them, but at $15,  it was a gamble I was willing to take. And I'm so glad I did!

Unless you have been living under a very unfashionable rock, you know the cold shoulder trend is red hot this summer. Unfortunately most of those tops are super restricting on your shoulders because the chest and arm band are all in one. This top is was more functional, because the arms and chest part are two separate pieces, making it easy to move around in. My favorite part though, is the built in bra. It's built well enough to stay up, but comes without a pesky and uncomfortable underwire.

Well, I'm wheels up to Vegas this morning with a group of friends. There  is 17 of us going!! If you don't already know, you can follow along on all the madness on snapchat (leah_behr), though I'm sure I'll be posting a few things to Insta, as well. I snagged a ton of cute dresses from The Stylist La, and I'll be sharing them over on my feed so be sure to see how #TheStylistLaTakesVegas

DevaCurl

Continuing on my quest to find the perfect curly hair product, I recently tried DevaCurl. When my hair stylist told me about the product, she said that all of her curly-haired clients swear by it, so it was essential for me to give it a try. 


I have tried every product under the sun, so believe me when I say that this was a game changer. The number one problem I have with my hair, is that it tends to frizz so much. And, you know what they say...a frizz is a curl just waiting to happen. The number 1 cause is frizz is a lack of moisture. For this reason, I rarely use shampoo, but would condition my hair every single time I wash it. The problem with that, is that product can tend to build up in your hair (causing breakage) if it's not being properly removed via shampoo. 
DevaCurl No-Poo is a cleansing and conditioning "shampoo" sans all the harsh chemicals normally found in shampoos. Harsh chemicals create dryness, and dryness creates frizz, so finding a "shampoo" that actually hydrates my locks is game changing. Toping that off with DevaCurl One Condition conditioner delivers maximum hair hydration, and left my hair feeling the softest it has ever felt!

As for styling, my go-to product is also cream based, so naturally, reached for DevaCurl Styling Cream. Again, this product proved to hydrate my hair, while styling it, instead of drying it out like most styling products do. Not to mention, the smell is intoxicating! So good!

I like to finish off with a product that "sets" my curls, so they have a nice finished look, and DevaCurl Ultra Defining Gel and Spray Gel were the perfect pair. Best of all, no crunchy after effects that usually come with using a gel based product! 

I had such a great experience trying out DevaCurl that I cannot wait to give more products a try, to find out what set of styling products will work best for my hair. I have a TON of hair, and it tends to lay really flat, so I'm thinking it might be worth trying out one of their Volumizing Foams or Boosters.

My curls have truly never felt so soft, and touchable, while still looking defined.

Oversized Button Up + Distressed Denim

One of my favorite combos is an oversized button up and a pair of heavily distressed denim shorts. It's a combo that perfectly blends chic with just the right touch of grunge. This button up has quickly become a closet favorite, as evidenced here.  

Kygo is back on the blgo today, and if you aren't following him on insta (yes he has his own page!) you are missing out on oodles of cuteness.

70's Chic



Aside from fringe, I've strayed away from the 70's trend. While bell-bottoms look cute on so many other women, they are just not my jam. I recently picked up this dress from LuLu*s, and I feel like it lends itself ever so subtly to the trend. 

You already know I'm obsessed with hats, but the new kid on the block (or in the closet, in my case) is the chunky heel. I can't get enough of this trend lately.  Not only are they super cute, but they add major points in the comfort department.

By the way, the boy is crazy about this dress, so...there's that. It cuts pretty low, but fashion tape does wonders! LuLu*s is having a huge outlet sale starting Thursday, where items will be grouped into buckets of either less than $10, less than $15, less than $25 and so on. Be sure to check it out.

It's the last week in our Blogger Nation summer series. I hope you've enjoyed. We'll be back in the fall, and I'm curious...are there any trends or brands you'd like to see us feature? Be sure to stop by and check out the other ladies (linked above) and, as always, follow along on IG #FBloggerNation

Casual Friday Work Style

Buying work clothes has never been my thing. My hubby always looks so put together at the office, and I seem to always have to give myself a pep talk to put on my professional garb in the morning. This is exactly why I always look forward to casual Friday. It's like this day was created for corporate casual lovers like myself. 
 
For most, ripped jeans may be pushing the casual Friday boundaries. I try to only wear them on days I think I won't be seeing clients, but in the end, a good pair of heels and nice top can make up for the tattered denim.

By the way, my favorite mules are on sale for less than $60! I'm dubbing these "The Quintessential Shoe of 2015" because I wear them non-stop! They go with everything, are super comfy, and are easy to slide on and off when showing houses. #LifeOfARealtor

I hope you all have a beautiful weekend! My bestie (since 6th grade!) is flying in today, and I'm so excited to spend time with her! Make sure to follow along in all the madness on snapchat (username: leah_behr) and IG - @eatpraywearlove. We have some fun things in store this weekend. Happy Friday!

Happy, Calm + Focused

I've been suffering with chronic fatigue for a while now, and aside from just being tired all the time, it's really to pile one a few problems. I can't remember anything (unless I write it down, of course), and there are periods of time when I feel like I'm in such a mental fog that I can't even think straight. All that to that, that when HCF approached me with a product that promised to feed my brain and aid in some of the areas I was lacking...I was all for giving it a try.

A few weeks ago I shared with you that I would be starting this journey, and today I am back with the results.


The verdict? Honestly...I feel really good. I haven't had any abnormal fatigue (at least none that a good cup of coffee can't fix), but my mental clarity is on point!  One area I really noticed improvement on was during that "time of the month". I typically bite my husband's head off when I am PMS'ing (#justsayin...sorry babe!), but I had very little symptoms of PMS this time around. All I can contribute that to is that I have been taking this product.

Before I go any further, let me just say that I am not here to sell you on it. Everyone is different, and what every BODY needs is different. But, if you find yourself in the same boat I was in, I'm sure you would be desperate to give anything a try and why not start with something that is filled with vitamins and neuro-nutrients?! 

HCF (Happy, Calm, Focused) is filled with the essential neurotransmitters and amino acids that our brains need. These amino acids are usually found in foods like fish, cheese, milk and turkey...all things I eat very little of. I'm a firm believer in trying natural healing first, so it comes as very little surprise to me that this supplement worked so well for me. 

If you are feeling anything less than the way you think you should be feeling, I highly suggest giving this product a try.

Hatha To Happy Hour

I've been trying desperately to get back into my workout routine, as evidenced here and here. Being a girl-on-the-go, it's not always easy, but it's made easier with cute workout clothes that translate well from work(out) to play. 

This short and tank combo do just that, easily translating from hatha to happy hour.

By switching out tennies for wedges, you can completely transform your look from hatha to happy hour. Wearing a cute topknot to your workout keeps your hair off your face and keeps it from getting sweaty, while a bold lip color is easy (and fun) to throw on, post workout. 

It's easy to see why this sports bra and tank work well for any occasion, but what I'm most surprised about are these shorts. They are so light weight, and flattering, and truly transform your look from boxing to brunch.
