Oh my goodness, you guys! It is almost swimsuit season and that alone is reason to celebrate! The hardest thing for me to control is my intake of bread and carbs. The thing that has helped me most is stocking our fridge with a LOT of fruits and vegetables. Coming home from school my go to snack was like two bowls of cereal! I have really tried to replace my cereal with apples and peanut butter. The apples give an extra boost of energy and the peanut butter tides me over until dinner.
Along with a better afternoon snack, I have been running for 30 min (2.5 miles) almost everyday. When I have a particularly unhealthy day, I try to run a little harder. I also threw in about 30 min of strength training after my run. I currently am loving my Victoria’s Secret Full Body Workout. I usually focus on three sections of the workout and do 2-3 rounds.
And before the end of the day, I have to say how amazing these cropped legging from Old Navy are! They are high waisted and a dark green color called emerald isle. The reason I love these so much is because when I run they stay up and I am not constantly having to pull them up. I bet you can tell by now that I am a sucker for a good pair of high-waisted leggings! I paired it up with a long line seamless sports bra (which I was very hesitant about buying, but I am so glad I did because I love it!) It is something totally different from what I have and I was pleasantly surprised about the amount of support it has. Definitely a good buy! And you may have seen my long sleeve Lululemon top in my previous posts, but I had to include it again because it is super soft.

Hello lovelies! I don’t know about you, but I am so happy that spring is finally here. However, no matter how many times I wear my glossy red Hunter boots, the fluctuating weather is always a problem. In Oklahoma the weather may be 40 degrees on the way to school and 80 degrees by the time we are let out. But, one word solves all of my spring wardrobe obstacles. Layers. It is the key to staying covered in the morning hours and able to cool off in the afternoon.
I styled a royal blue peplum tank from the Old Navy Outlet with a light weight grey cardigan from American Eagle. I have two of these tank tops, one in blue and one in white, and I love them both so much! They are comfortable, easy to wear with leggings or jeans, and look AMAZING. I seriously love them so much! I wore it with a pair of black high-waisted jeans from American Eagle, but white jeans or shorts would look super adorable 🙂
Have a great rest of the week!
xoxo – Emma

Happy 2017! To start off the new year I did 30 min of cardio. I ran a 2 mile loop outside in this beautiful Oklahoma weather! After, I did a killer ab circuit! This top is one of my favorite purchases this year. It is super soft and just the right fabric for a winter run!

As winter continues, Oklahoma weather only gets colder. Sweater are a must for me once it gets below 50 degrees. For New Year’s Eve I decided to go with a gold peplum sweater paired with a pair black leggings and suede chukka boots from Target. I wore the leggings to keep my outfit casual. If you wanted to dress it up, this top would look great with a pair of black or denim jeans!
