My current 5 favorite items!!!!

Ok, first off, I cannot believe it has been a month since I posted. Time is flying and life is busy as I am sure you all can relate……I wanted to share the latest 5 items I have purchased and can’t get enough of!

  1. This one piece suit was a lifesaver for our recent vacation – so easy to slip on and it stays up! Size up per the reviews…..(see below)
  2. This bodysuit – such a classic staple right now – oh and 30% off $39.50 – grab it asap! A total steal (see below).
  3. These olive joggers – COMFY and CUTE! (to be fair – I don’t like them on this model – sorry…..she’s just REALLY tall). I would say they run pretty generous!
  4. This sweatshirt is so adorable! so comfy too and that lace up is everything! grab one ASAP ($78)!!!! I tried on both XS and S – I went with the small. For a bigger/ boxy fit size up even more! (see below)
  5. These cropped leggings– a bit elevated from your everyday black basics! snap them up! Love them so much and wear them all the time!

  

Have a great weekend, xxx, Nikki

New Work out Gear

A quick Monday Motivation post – I’m super excited to share some great Athleta items that are currently discounted! For a short time, grab this tank for $10 off and these awesome crops for only $54 (they are currently $20 OFF)!

THIS PARKA…..

……..is amazing! Ok, so I wanted (rather than needed) another winter coat and when I came across the Peak Parka from Athleta I was sold! I love the bright forest green color (comes in black too) and the faux fur hood, as well as the 2 way-zipper, fleece lined pockets and built in cuff with thumbholes! It is SO SO SO WARM and not bulky, which I love. The fit is slimmer than normal – about a 1/2 size or so (and most of the reviewers agree – I bought a Medium and fits great). It is super affordable …….and wind proof and made from recycled products?!? Wow! As you can tell, I highly recommend this winter coat. It has been keeping me warm all week!

While you are at it, pick up this super soft and warm crisscross sweatshirt (I’ve been living in this!) and pair with these super warm and toasty jogger sweat pants. I LOVE THEM!!!! I just bought a 2nd pair!!
