It’s been a while since I’ve shared my Fabletics picks here on the blog so I thought I would take a quick moment and share! I loved this “nocturnal flower” print so much that I actually chose the shorts, jacket AND capri’s all in the same print! And my Nike Pegasus running shoes (do you call them tennis shoes or sneakers?) are still going strong! I know I am going to kick myself if I don’t snag another pair before they sell out…they are ridiculously comfortable. I’m pretty sure I shared here on the blog at some point but I joined Equinox gym and am LOVING it. They have a great selection/variety of classes so I never get bored.

Outfit Details: Carrie Shorts in Nocturnal Floral print c/o Fabletics, JoJo Jacket in Nocturnal Floral print c/o Fabletics, Sports Bra c/ Fabletics, Old Navy Tank, Nike Pegasus 32 Running Shoes, Tory Burch Aviators

Last week was a real doozy, let me tell ya. We started the week off with a broken water heater (boo to no warm water), then my site got hacked and was deactivated by my web host (nightmare) and we finished the week off with my son getting sick. Thankfully it’s just a cold, but still. It was a LONG week. I’m looking forward to starting anew. Speaking of new…I recently partnered with a “new-to-me” local boutique called Miss Match, located in my hometown (well, sorta) of San Diego! Thankfully, they also have an online boutique so if you love this crochet/lace dress as much as I do, you can snag it here! Also, you can get $15 off your order of $100+ with code MM2016. Stay tuned for another Miss Match look coming to the blog later this week!

Outfit Details: Crochet Lace-up Dress c/o Miss Match, Platform Sandals c/o Andre Assous, Target Fedora, Turquoise Bracelet belonged to my grandmother, “Pat on the Black” nail polish by Sally Hansen (one of my all-time faves!)

cabi Fall Collection

I’m not much of a fan of Fall weather, but I AM a fan of Fall fashion! It hasn’t quite cooled down enough to pull out our sweaters yet but I’ve been at least playing with Fall colors. And I did just cave and buy pumpkin spice coffee so ’tis definitely in the air! It even rained today but it was still 75+ degrees out so felt more like tropical weather to me!

X Factor The System

I signed up for Influenster several years ago and to be completely honest, I had forgotten all about it. So I was a little surprised when I received an email out of the blue saying that I had been selected to try Formula X’s New System XCEL kit. I’ve tried a few gel-like mani’s over the past few years and so far nothing I’ve tried lasted any longer than my regular at-home manicures…that is…until now. THIS STUFF IS AMAZING. As I am typing this, I am looking at my 6 day old manicure in SHOCK that I do not have a single chip yet. I barely even have wear and tear on the tips. The funny thing is that they sent me this coral/pink color (called TGIF) and I was totally not feeling the summer color (don’t get me wrong…it is gorge but I’m ready for darker hues for Fall!). So wouldn’t you know it has been the longest lasting manicure of all time?!? LOL. The only reason I had to remove my polish is because I had an event to attend and the color did not match my outfit. The other crazy thing is that I literally have over 50 bottles of nail polish and this is my first bottle of Formula X nail polish. Now I can’t wait to go pick up a few new colors for Fall. Oh, and before I forget…the top coat is extremely shiny and dries in record time. Also, the Delete All nail polish remover was super easy to use. I’ve never been a big fan of the sponge/dip removers but being able to do all five nails at once was so simple that I may never go back to a cotton ball and smearing polish around. The only con I could come up with was the decorative caps on the lids. I can’t stand when you have to pull the squares off to twist the lids off (I’m always afraid the bottle is going to drop and break when you pick it up). Also, the brushes could have been a little thicker…but now I’m just being nit-picky trying to come up with cons! Overall, I am super impressed and will definitely be buying a few of these sets to give as gifts to my nail polish loving friends!
