cobalt pants for the holidays

It's pretty much the holiday season- cocktail recipes are being served up, gift guides are a plenty, and more and more you are seeing gals in their glitter. While sparkles and sequins are for sure a norm around here, this year, I'm gravitating towards bold festive hues like this cobalt pair of pants. Funny story about these, my husband then fiancĂ©, gave them to me last year for Christmas. I remember heading into GAP with him, pointing at them and letting him I wanted these, as well as my size…so he could get the fit right of course! I didn't think anything of it, I really figured he would forget, but of course come Christmas morning these gorgeous cobalt pants were wrapped up just for me. And because I have a lot of pants, somehow over the months these got shoved to the back. The other day as I was digging though my denim drawer I spotted these blue beauties, I had forgotten all about them, and it was like Christmas morning all over again for me. Don't you love it when that happens?!

Happy Friday, loves. Hope you all have a fab weekend! Follow me on my instagram for all my weekend shenanigan updates.

sporty spice

{Zara blazer, ASICS top, True Religion denim c/o, custom Reebok sneakers c/o}

I am all about multi-use clothing. In fact, I generally try and think of three different ways to wear something before I purchase anything...generally. This ASICS top was not one of those items. I walked into Sports Authority as a supportive bystander while my husband was on the hunt for soccer cleats, and of course I meandered over to the ladies section and found something I just couldn't live without- this top. It's a running shirt ultimately but as soon as I saw it I knew I would wear it with blazers and denim, and all sort of un-workout attire.  While I do wear it when I go running to "chic" up my look, I love the idea of taking this top and wearing it for everyday life too. 

How would you style this workout top?
