PURA VIDA

In honor of the husbands Costa Rica vlog (coming soon!!!)  heres my Costa Rica outfit roundup!

For those of you unaware, me and Bernard went to Costa Rica with his fam to see his sister get married!  It was a beautiful country, a beautiful wedding, and a beautiful way to spent time with our family. ❤︎
We literally partied all week. The in laws legit now how to get down. 
Congrats Brookie!! Welcome to the married life πŸ–€πŸ–€ 



Below are a few of my outfits from the week, otherwise we were in swimsuits!




Details:
'Shinestar' off the shoulder blush blouse; a random brand from TJMAXX, I'll link a few other really cute ones below!
Vanity Room cold shoulder cami- love the silk!
Ruffled cold shoulder top *and its on  S A L E !

'State of Being' asymmetrical skirt- got this for $6!! #BargainShopper
I also love this asymmetrical skirt by ASOS and this J Brand skirt!

Steve Madden clear heels- my heels for the week and for the wedding.  They were taller than I was used to, so I was determined to break them in for the wedding. 

Wicker clutch.  I stole this from my little sister last time I was home.  Can you believe this cute lil clutch came from the Bahamas like 10 years ago!?










Target bikini top and bottoms.  I love the mesh details!









Details:


Loft fringe sweater- I always travel with a sweater!

J Crew white shorts (These are on repeat!)

Lucky Brand sunnies (get used to seeing these because they're my only pair.  I always have to get cheap sunglasses because Im notorious for breaking mine!)










Details:

Blue Island bathing suit cover up.  Couldn't find my exact one, but this one is similar!! Im very into detail, and I love the peplum bottom and the material.  You could even wear it with a slip and a pair of heels to dress it up!







Details:

Black halter neck- I have no idea what brand this is or where I got it!  Oops!
This one is cute!

Tommy Hilfiger textured skirt-  Consignment shop find! 

Vintage crochet chain purse

Steve Madden clear heels










What are your travel plans this summer!?  Give us ideas for next year!!
Happy Friyay and have a great weekend!

07-16-17


  

Ahh Sunday... my favorite day of the week.
Church, a pizza date with my man, and a sunset motorcycle ride- can life be better?  Silly or not, being on the motorcycle is one of my favorite times to talk\listen to the Lord.  

Sunday is a sweet reminder to slow down, be at peace in His presence; life is nothing without it.  No matter what happens in life, God is with us and for our good and loves us.  God just truly takes care of me and Bernard, and He has always prepared the way- way ahead of us or our own plan.  I just love Him, the husband and family He's given me, and Sundays.  


Now we are off to watch our Netflix show, and eat our leftover pizza for the 3rd meal in a row!  

Below, I've linked outfit details πŸ’—



Outfit Details:
Vince Camuto dress-  this was a great addition to my closet.  Wear it with heels and grab a glittery clutch, or fancy-ish flats and belt it and you have two different looks!  The pink belt is a nice hint of color and semi matched my purple purse.  Y'all I'm still on my monochromatic kick.  

Tahari oxfords.  These have been on repeat lately!

*the bracelet under it is actually a choker I doubled up.  

Can't think for the life of me where I got the belt.  But this cute Emily Pucci belt is totally on my wishlist. I love the feathers!

Chain purse.  Dirt cheap find- amen.  *If I do any color, its usually with a bag. 

Pink Lucky Brand Sunglasses.  

The dolphin bangle was a souvenir from the Bahamas a few years ago.  Still just as obsessed with it.  Have to keep him with my mermaid. 

Vintage Lisner chain bracelet.  
















Keep an eye out for the hubbys Costa Rica vlog!  Thanks for reading!

Work It.










Happy Monday folks! 
Today I wanted to share a little at-home workout me and the husband cooked up!  Since summer time is B's busiest season and he works late almost everyday, working out isn't really a priority anymore.  But, before our Costa Rica trip we PROMISED we would work out every day even if it meant doing a quick 20 minute workout at the house.  Spoiler alert we failed big time and only managed to get a few workouts in before the vacay. 😁 

 This workout was a LOT harder than I expected and by the end of it we were dripping sweat and ready for a nap!
Super simple, super hard and all you need is a jump rope!
Although I will say, this should be a high intensity work out and you should give it 110%.  
After all its only 10 minutes. 😈



10 minutes:
πŸ“Œ10 Jumping Lunges
πŸ“ŒJumping Air Squats
πŸ“ŒJumping Jacks
πŸ“Œ30 second Handstand hold 
*if you are unable to do a free standing handstand hold, lean against a wall or a fence.  If you can kinda do it I say play around with the hand stand holds and practice for about 30 seconds.
πŸ“Œ100 meter sprint 
*eyeball it!



10 minutes of jump rope (double unders if you can) 30 seconds on 30 seconds off
Yup, you'll be dead and done after this.  Lungs on fire!!  Side note notice those huge mosquito bitesπŸ˜‘  The biggest con to outdoor workouts!





Outfit Details:
Nike Pro compression shorts
Old Navy sports bra (mine has been customized 😜)
Nike tennies
Lucky Brand sunnies



Thanks for reading!  Comment below how it goes if you do this workout!! 😘
