What I'm Wearing...

Here's what I was wearing one day while we were out of town. Cotton dresses are a staple when you're traveling because 1) they don't wrinkle (much) 2) they're very comfortable to be in all day, especially when doing a lot of walking. I discovered this a few years ago when we were in Chicago (and were outside, and were walking  A LOT) and now I always pack them when we go somewhere. It was kind of cold so I layered, but I still wanted my pop of color so I brought out the coral dress for the first time in months. This my first time wearing the Express leggings and I'm IN LOVE. Not that I condone it, but this is the first pair of leggings that made me understand how some people seem to mistake them for pants. They can look and feel like a pair of yoga pants but... they're not, so don't treat them as such :)
Dress - Old Navy

I'm crazy in love with that color on you !!!! <3 love it!!!! :)

p.s you make me want to try some Express leggings. I have always thought it was a no no because my sister looks cute in them but she's a size 2 & I'm not... Lol

You and I have the same body type and even tho I think I'm much shorter than you (I'm only 5'3) I think I could wear them and look just as pretty.

Are they tight around the tummy? I still have to stay away from that cause of my surgery and abdominal pain...

Are they as difficult to get on & take off like tights? I got a super cute warm pair from payless of all places - but they hurt after a while :(

P.p.s you are adorable.


P.p.s.s I keep wanting a blog but don't know what kind... I don't do fashion (hence my neverending questions lol! Thanks btw!!!), I'm not well enough to photo journal everyday.... And I don't work right now... I guess I could just do a blog about me? Or I have alot to talk about medical wise but I'm not sure anyone would want to read my rants haha! I'd love any suggestions... Also, name choosing... I'm not so good at... Lol & I don't want my name to be the title b/c I don't want my students (when I go back to work) looking me up.

I love the Express leggings! Mine are in a large if that helps and I find them really comfortable, easy to get on and off, and they don't bother my stomach at all. I have a lot of discomfort somedays because of the Crohn's and these work well for me. I was hesitant to wear them for a long time because I thought I didn't have a good body type for them, but anyone can really wear them if you do it right. Obviously I usually wear mine under dresses, never as a substitute for pants or anything like that. Just wouldn't work for me.
All that I can really say about blogging is do it about something you like. I spent a lot of my time on fashion as a hobby anyway, so to me this is fun. If it's something you're not interested in it would probably feel like work. The great thing is that there aren't any rules, you don't have to post everyday, or post certain things - just whatever you want :)
