Laced Up In Love

I love a good graffiti wall and this one is definitely a fave! The “I love you so much” wall is an Austin, TX landmark.Β Located on South Congress along with all the cool shops and cafes, this mural is a popular stopping place outside Jo’s Coffee. People are usually lined up on the sidewalk to take photos with this iconic Austin mural. Even though there isn’t much to it, it’s the message that counts!

I had actually just arrived in Austin on the day of these photos. So I was still in my travel/airport attire. But who am I kidding??? I like to dress like this on most days haha! I have to say, I get more compliments on these pants than just about anything in my wardrobe. And they are incredibly comfortable! I love finding sportswear with a little edge and these stole my heart the minute I saw them. Congrats to the designers at Free People for coming up with this design!

My top is just a simple perforated long-sleeved tee. I usually wear perforated tops with a bralette underneath. However, if you are uncomfortable with just a bra or bralette, just throw on a regular tank top or cami underneath. However, if you are into bralettes like I am, Spanx just came out with a new one that I love! And I’m the bralette queen so trust my judgement here lol! This new Spanx design is feminine, seamless, and supportive. A lot of my friends and clients have trouble wearing bralettes because they lack support. This one has way more support than your typical bralette. Give it a try! They come in several different colors!

And, of course, this outfit wouldn’t be complete with my go-to, old school Adidas sneakers. Love these little babies and their tomboyish design.

Remember to tell someone how much you LOVE them today!!!

Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say you have done a very good job with this. Also, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Internet explorer. Excellent Blog!
