Little Notes.

 
 Top: Old Navy Jeans: Silver Boots: Steve Madden Necklace: Shop Kempt  

Sometimes it is just a jeans and t-shirt kind of day! I like to be comfortable :) You can add a pop of fun to a casual look through a statement necklace, or through fun details in a simple design. For example, the two tone colors to my striped top is a fun detail that makes the shirt a little more exciting, can shirts be exciting? I think so :) These elements take a casual look, and make them a bit more polished.

*Documenting my style to make sure I keep the promise to myself, to always be fully dressed with a smile.

Life's Little Notes...

Dear Jillian Michaels,
Your killer buns and thighs DVD has me wincing in pain every time I get up, sit down....or walk if I am being honest.

Dear Utah,
This San Diego girl appreciates one of your warmest winters ever (even if you did snow last night), if you keep this up, I would maybe, slightly, a little bit, but probably still not consider settling down here :) haha

Dear Mum and Dad,
Stop being so busy and gone all the time. I need you two to start answering your phones, I miss my daily chats!

Dear Avocados,
Why can I never seem to pick one of you guys that is good? I never get a ripe one, I follow all the rules, and still when I open you, you are usually bad. What gives?!

Dear Readers,
Thanks for much for wishing the hubberz happy birthday! I think he secretly enjoyed having a bunch of strangers wish him happy birthday :)

    Next time try the Darker Hass Avos, they much less tempremental then normal green avos and way tastier!

  8. Love the casual outfit! Especially the bag and necklace - adorable little touches that really make the outfit complete :) Also, I feel like I might be the only one who hasn't tried these Jillian Michaels videos yet. Hmmm... maybe it's time.

  9. Your hair is looking soooo long! Pretty girl :)
    I picked my first ever perfect avocado last week! It was still kind of firm at the store but I let it sit out on the counter for a couple days and voila! I was so proud of myself.. ha ha!

  10. Loving your hair! I just want mine to grow faster. Cutting it was a mistake. I am also a total jeans and tshirt kind of girl. I like to be comfy, but still with a side of femininity.

  16. Me and my girlfriends over here are currently doing Jillian Michaels. Its hardcore. I couldn't walk up the stairs the first day and it hurt even more the 2nd day! Good luck!!

  17. Oh Jillian! I did her 30 day shred, didn't lose weight, but was always sore. Goodness- she really knows how to kick someone's behind!

  18. I'm a big fan of comfy clothes and adding a pop of color to brighten it up! Love your outfit!

  19. I think this is a very nice outfit. I love the boots and the area around the zipper being red. Such a fun touch. And I also can never pick a good avocado. Oh well. I just cut the brown spots out and move on. :)

  20. Good avocados are hard to find in Utah! The best ones are in California. We have better luck here in Arizona since they are grown in Mexico, too. The trick is to pick one that's super-green and hard and then place it next to a banana on your counter or wherever. It will be perfectly ripe in 1-2 days! Also, just push on the top (where the stem was)a little and if it gives slightly, it's ready! Unripe avocados are gross, too.

    I'm in NC, and we've definitely had the warmest winter I can remember. It's been wonderful!!

  24. Jillian Michaels DVDs have been killing my abs and thighs! I guess that means its working?

  25. Weird, I have an identical top (although the front is red and cream stripes and the back is tan and cream). But I got it at Old Navy. Anyway, I pretty much wore the same outfit as you this weekend.
