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.

Poolside Essentials

I'm heading out to Vegas next weekend, which has me thinking about what to pack. #obvi A large majority of our vacay time will be spent around the pool, so I'm thinking more about poolside attire than anything else.

While some of you may not have Vegas on your summer vacay list, it's safe to safe that a water-bound trip is in the works for us. Even if it's just to the pool. Here are a few essentials for a day on the water.

This bikini is one of summer 2015's hottest most coveted pieces! Also, I recently discovered this amazing sunscreen from glo-therapeutics and am obsessed! It's non-greasy, and absorbs quickly, but has added antioxidants and conditioners that provide a healthy glow. I am definitely not going anywhere in the sun without this product. What are some of your must have poolside essentials?

Two Must Have Summer Accessories



The backpack has made a major comeback, and I couldn't be happier. I am obsessed with this cute vegan leather backpack! Today, the blogger nation babes and I are back with a selection of our favorite summer accessories.
A chic pair of flat sandals and a statement bag, can make or break your outfit. These Sole Society pieces, definitely set this dress off! Every summer I find myself with a pair of sandals that I wear over and over again, and these are that piece for 2015. 

Be sure to stop by the other gals blogs, and see how they styled their SS accessories. Let's own this Monday, ok?!

Unless you've been living under a very unfashionable rock, you are probably well aware that the Nordstrom Anniversary sale opened to the public yesterday. I'll save you the diatribe and cut to the point. Here are a few of my Nordy's favorites from the sale.
