Weekend Favorites:)

Hey guys! Hope your having a fabulous start to your weekend. If you haven't already go check out my video haul, "Haulin It" there is some great goodies in there! So this week my weekend favorite is Free People's blog. If you haven't heard of it, it's a clothing company and I would categorize it as boho chic. All of favorites of this week are from their blog site and some cool DIY's that I would love to try! Keep scrolling to get to all the goodies and neat ideas!

Staple- The Army Jacket

Staple items have been around for forever! I kind of label all the pieces I wear a lot staple items. If there is a certain list I am definitely not following it. My b-a-d. #sorrynotsorry :). Any who this week's staple item is the army jacket! I had been wanting an army jacket for the longest and finally found one at JcPenny's for $15 dollars, SCORE. I label this a staple item because it can be worn in warm weather, cold weather, and with multiple items. Try mixing it up when you wear your army jacket, take the roll of a soldier, and be in charge!

The Army Jacket

Mint Velvet , $76 / Forever 21 sleeveless tank / Jane Norman t shirt, $12 / Bardot army field jacket, $23 / Ksubi skinny jeans, $195 / Reiss / Oasis black legging, $43 / Zara shoes / Riding boots / Madison Harding leather boots / Converse tennis shoes, $80 / Boy London Mens White Boy London Sweatshirt, $83

1. To be comfy and chic at the same time I say pair it with a dress. Horizontal stripes make you appear slimmer. Although I am sure you already look gorg! Keep the comfortable look rolling with a small bootie and a fabulous handbag to match!

2. Jeans are my thing! If jeans are your thing too, pair it with a comfortable jean, riding boots, and a rad graphic tee. This is a great grab & go outfit for when your in a rush or just cruising around town. To add that cool-vibe touch try topping it off with a sun hat & some sunnies.

3. Who can NOT be beyond comfortable in leggings! If you feel good, you look good! Pairing a graphic sweater, leggings, and converse is a great way to contrast an army jacket. It totally vibes cool, tough, and chic. Soften the look up a bit with a bright handbag or cross-body (because cross-bodies are awesome and are my favs)!

4. Dress up your army jacket as well. Tough girls can be beauts too! Pair a neutral color pencil skirt with a matching top and throw your army jacket on top to finish it off. The mix of dressy and casual compliment each other, the skirt and midi heel dress it up, while the crop top and army jacket level it out! 

Now go off and work your army jacket like no tomorrow!

"I Work Out"

Many say it is hard to stay fit and eat healthy- and there right! I have been trying both of these for a good while now and it is no easy task. I actually would really love a chocolate cake right about now, and cookies, oh and ice cream! Anyways don't want to get to carried away! Personally I think all individuals should find what works best for them. For example if your not much of a runner try cycling or zumba. Zumba is AMAZING and really fun. Also, if your already into working out or planning on it, what is your go to active wear? Mine is definitely shorts, sports bra, and running shoes of course. I also love the wide legged workout pants, their to comfortable. Jackets can also be good for working out if you work out outside, if you get cold easily like me, and or if you wanna sweat more. Whatever your new natural may be, let it be about you, and most importantly right for you! 

"I work out!"

Best places to get Active Wear:

* Shorts & Pants- Old Navy & Target
*Sports Bras- Jcpenny's & Walmart
*Sneakers- Shoe Carnival & Nike
*Jackets- Walmart &  Old Navy
Everything Apparel: VS

Hope you got inspired or stayed inspired! Happy new natural!
