work it out

WORK IT OUTTGIF! I'm here to beg for forgiveness re :: my blogging hiatus... Things have been crazy busy for the Clymers because we just BOUGHT A HOUSE! {yay for no more renting, a house of our own and a fur baby (dog, of course) joining our family very soon!} I'll keep you updated with photos and progress as we go through the closing process, renovations and move-in, but now you know the reason behind my lameness. It's a pretty good excuse, right?

Today we're talking workout wear. I don't know about you, but when I am exercising regularly I feel SO much better; more energy, sleep better, and an all-around better attitude. But the cherry ontop of staying in shape is looking stylish while doing it. Don't lie... you know that new pair of shoes or Lulu top is a major motivator to get your butt in the gym!

I'm sharing some of my favorite pieces to keep you stylishly in shape ::

New Balance Mesh 711 in Neon Yellow

I recently purchased these babies and LOVE the bright citron color. They are also super lightweight, comfortable and airy.

I absolutely love Nordstrom's Zella brand. Everything is comfortable and flattering, and it's a fraction of the price of Lulu Lemon. Not to mention the cute colors and patterns!

Zella Girl 'Freedom' Space Dye Leggings {on super sale now!}

The charcoal color of this leggings is perfect for those of you who want a swap from basic black. It is still dark enough that it hides imperfections {bulges, cellulite, dimples and all that other fun stuff that we women love to deal with}

Zella Girl 'Tumble' Tank

I love the built-in bra in this top because, let's be honest, who wants to worry about a separate sports bra? SO last year.

Zella 'Essential' Jacket

This is called the 'Essential' Jacket because that's exactly what it is. The ruching down the front provides the ultimate figure-flattery and it creates a perfect hourglass figure. This is especially essential as fall approaches!

ALO is another great workout brand with unique styles. I love anything with an open or drapey back and these fit the bill ::

ALO Cinder L/S Top

ALO Vapor Top

So work it out in style; you'll be more motivated and feeling refreshed in no time!

nordstrom anni sale :: my favorite picks

It's that time of year again... the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale {Early Access} is here! For those of you who know about this sale, you know why there is a line forming outside of the doors at 10am on the first day. And for those of you who don't know about it, that should pretty much sum it up. During the Anniversary Sale, Nordstrom marks down TONS of fall {and more} clothing, shoes, and accessories before the fall season starts; great deals and huge savings! I shopped this sale with three clients yesterday and came up with a list of my favorite items. So today you're in luck; I'm sharing it with you!

It does not open to the public until July 18 {yes, they actually have all of the merchandise into a secret tent that you may not enter without a card}, so you still have a week! You also earn double points when you shop this sale early access. But hurry - things go fast. If you find something you like in stores or online, buy it...YESTERDAY!

working girl wednesday :: the perfectly professional white pant

Happy Hump Day! Today we're bringing back a little Working Girl Wednesday inspiration with the perfect white pant. The white jean is a summer staple, but what about when it comes to the office? No one wants to don their black and dark gray pants year-round, especially when the temps outside don't exactly align with your frigid office {Am I right, ladies?!} A summer necessity in your working girl wardrobe is the white pant. From day to night, business casual to dressy or formal, the white pant won't let you down this summer.

I LOVE this floral jacquard pant from the LOFT. The subtle floral pattern gives a more dressy effect, and the fit is perfect.  These pants lend themselves perfectly to virtually any office environment ::







And here's where you can buy them yourself ::

Floral Jacquard Skinny Ankle Pant

 How about a skirt for those REEEEALLY hot days?

So make sure you pick up a summer white pant for your working girl wardrobe; not only will you feel cool, you'll look it as well!

These are a few of our favorite spring things...


Happy Hump Day, y'all! Today I'm sharing my Spring Wish List. From bags, to clothing, to beauty buys and more, these items are sure to make their way into my hands before spring is through...

First up, this to-die-for foldover leather clutch from K.slademade. I love the soft leather, the size, the color options and the fact that you can add a simple gold monogram to any bag!

Second, the Stella & Dot Norah Pendant. Citrine is a must-have in your closet for spring, and trust me when I say that you can wear this beauty with EVERYTHING! From navy, to coral, to neutrals and patterns, the Norah is the perfect necklace to take you into spring & summer.

Next on the list is one of my splurges :: Anyone who knows me knows that I am a sucker for Tory Burch! The heel height of the Savannah Wedge is perfect for a sweet daytime dress, andtaking it into the night with a white skinny jean or fun skirt.

SPLURGE :: Tory Burch Savannah Wedge

The fourth thing on my wish list is a beauty buy. Too Faced "Return of Sexy" eye palette is full of bright colors that I'm dying to experiment with this spring. I love a pop of bright eye color blended in with other neutrals; especially those fuchsia tones. Radiant Orchid, anyone?

I always say that if I were forced to only shop at one store for the rest of my life, it would be Anthropologie. {I could go into the reasoning behind this, but I will keep it short and sweet by saying that they carry all of the basic necessities, plus the prettiest patterns and the most unique, compliment-receiving pieces} So naturally, there are a few {okay, twenty} things on my spring wish list from Anthro.

Everyone needs florals in their closet this spring. This skirt will help do that. It's girly, pretty and flattering. I would pair it with a navy and white striped tee, or a silky white blouse for a simple, put-together chic look.

Anthropologie Pomme Blossom Skirt

Last, but certainly not least on my Wish List is some pretty gear to {hopefully} inspire me to work out! Great justification, right? And let's be honest - I will be hanging around my house in this even if I don't make it to the gym! The color is perfect for spring and I love the built-in bra. Lulu Lemon works her magic once again!
