Happy Tuesday everyone!

So in my 25 by 25 post, I made a promise to myself to toss out pieces in my closet that don't fit anymore. Confession time: I have a closet FULL of clothes that don't fit. I'm not only a clothing hoarder but like most women, I dream of fitting into THAT pair of shorts again so I keep them just in case. But those days are over, I'm taking my closet back!

And if when I lose that weight I dream of losing, then I will spoil myself with a new wardrobe anyways!

So today's Loving Lately is a fall outfit I've been dreaming of. With room in my closet now, maybe I can chase these tan beauties.

I'm putting out an SOS to all my curvier ladies: HELP! I'm always on the hunt for boots for ladies with large(r) calves. Especially looking for comfy boots that fit over skinny jeans or leggings. :)

I love how tan makes a comeback every fall. And I'm loving so many fall trends like the dolman sleeve and metallic nails too.

What trends are you loving lately?

Happy Monday everyone!

I absolutely LOVED my weekend but there definitely is something to be said about getitng home and getting back into a schedule. I figure that everyday routine is what makes vacation so special anyways! So today, I'll be catching up on e-mails, tweets and that unbearably high number in my bloglovin count. Wish me luck!

Today is the link up with the lovely Rachel and Carly for the wonderful polish swap reveal. I was paired with the fabulous Nilda of Laughter, Love and Necklaces. I told her I was a neutral fans and she sent me her favorites in this adorable pouch!

And because I was clearly having wayyyyy too much to paint my nails on vacation, I'll share some of my neutral nail inspirations. Can't wait to try out the neutrals Nilda sent me! :) Thanks girl!

Which one do you like more?? Thanks Rachel and Carly for hosting a great swap!

I am feeling so backed up on posts lately and it's stressing me out a bit. I still haven't posted pictures from wine tasting and the wedding and now I have this GIANT pile of Disney photos I'm dying to share. Sigh. All of this is coming, I promise! Maybe I'm just building anticipation?

How was your weekend?

P.S. Pre-ordered my iPhone 5! I just couldn't resist. Any one else pre-order too? I need a new case now too...sigh.

Happy Monday everyone!

So I survived the weekend, justttt barely. I can't wait to recap all of it but until I get my photos edited, you'll just have to sample my Mani Monday. It's been SO long since I've done one, and trust me, my nails were in need.

So I know I can't stop talking about OPI Mermaid Tears, so I'm sorry it appears yet again. But I loved this mani because the Essie Shine of the Times almost makes my nails seem like mermaid scales! Do you see it too or am I completely nuts? I'm seriously in LOVE with every Essie luxeffect, Dawn from Vapid Vixen gave me this one is a fabulous swap!

I'm sorry I don't have more for you today! Don't worry, pics of the weekend are coming (complete with me in a sombrero).

Also Fantasy football females, our draft happens tomorrow night so get ready! Make sure you have your team created by tonight at the latest. I'm sending out an email today :)

How was your weekend? Tell me about it!

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Despite my undying love for dresses and sandals, I can't HELP but feel so excited about fall fashion lately. My mind is constantly thinking about my fall sweaters and cardigans. I decided to link up with the lovely ladies CarlyKristenNiki & Rachel for Loving Lately and I need to purchase these stat!

I'm feeling a little anxious for fall because my birthday is coming up. Another year older, le sigh. And even more of a reason to get my bee-hind in shape (who knows when wedding bells will ring ;) ).

Yesterday, I went to a "Hot Hula" class at the gym for the first time. I actually used to do Hula and Tahitian in high school so I was like "no prob, just an easy workout to ease myself back in." WRONG. Within the first 5 minutes, my quads were on fire. I remember hula being a decent workout but my hip joints definitely don't have the flexibility they used to. It was a challenge and my back does hurt a little this morning from popping out my bootay (lol) but overall, I feel good.

Also, Rob and I watched The Vow yesterday and I liked it! Everyone knows Channing Tatum is a hot piece of man candy but I wasn't entirely sure about his acting skills in a chick flick (and no I haven't seen Dear John yet). Anyways, I was pleasantly surprised and it definitely got Rob and I conversing about what we would regret most if something tragic happened to us tomorrow. I was overjoyed to hear his answer was the same as mine (I'll leave you to wonder what that was). It's silly but sometimes even a romantic movie can make you suddenly feel very lucky to have everything you do.

Lol (I could find a good source but here's where I got it)

Do you love sweaters as much as I do? Have you seen The Vow? How do you feel about Channing Tatum's acting chops?

Have a great day everyone!
