Utility Vest, Jacket and Get Yo’ Fitness On Week 4

I think I have an olive green utility vest/jacket obsession.  I recently decided I HAD TO HAVE both a utility vest and utility jacket.  Both in olive green.  So, off I went.  I hunted both down and now am the proud owner of both items, with not too big of a dip in my bank account!

The first item I found was the utility jacket.  I first saw it on my friend Sarah of ShopsSRJ.  She wore it so casually and described it as the perfect ‘throw on and go’ jacket that, well, I had to have it!  So, I searched and searched and found the one below on eBay for $8.

Utility jacket,

Details: Jacket, eBay, similar here and here; Dress, Gap, here; Shoes, Plato’s Closet, similar here; Necklace, Banana Republic, similar here; Bracelets, Forever 21, here; Bag, Louis Vuitton, buy used here.

I love the length, the slouchy sleeves, and the fact that it’s light enough to wear during the summer.  Layers are important during the summer, particularly when frequenting air-conditioned places.  This outfit I wore to a coffee date with girlfriends, followed by a little bit of shopping.  Notice I’m wearing slip-on shoes and clothing that is easily removed in case I need to try on clothes and shoes in a jiffy!  A girl’s gotta think ahead! 😉

Next, I hunted down the utility vest I could not get my mind off.  I found it during a grocery shopping trip to Target, because you know I can’t grocery shop at Target without perusing the clothing/shoes/accessories sections of the stores, haha.  So there is was, in its $30 glory.  They happened to have a $10 off coupon available that day, and I also used my Target Red Card, so in all, I saved $11.50.  Not too shabby!

I wore this outfit to the office and my office mates seemed to like it as much as I did!  I’ve pinned some other combinations on Pinterest in case you’re interested in buying and styling it other ways.  Find me on Pinterest here.

Get Yo’ Fitness On – Week 3

Hi, Friends!  How are the workouts going??  I, for one, have found them to be super useful and they came in super handy while on vacay this past week.  Often, when traveling, one does not have access to a gym, so these workouts are the perfect solution for someone looking to workout in their hotel room or other form of lodging without a gym.  That was the case for me this past week and boy was I glad to have these on hand!

As an added bonus, Home Fit Consulting is also providing you with some nutrition tips! These were curated by a registered dietician, Abby Nevins of Taste and See, LLC.  Check out what she has to say below:

10 General Tips for Staying Healthy this Summer

*Try applying one tip per week. Making too many changes at once can be overwhelming!

  • Don’t Skip Meals. Your schedule may be a little looser and your typical routine may be thrown off kilter. This is not an excuse to skip meals. Plan ahead to prevent this if possible! When we get hungry, we make bad decisions.
  • Stay Hydrated. People frequently mistake their thirst for hunger. Keep a water bottle in your car so you can ensure to stay hydrated when on the go.
  • Double Fist. On the topic of hydration, make sure you always drink water in between your alcoholic beverage of choice. This will help you drink less calories during the evening and make you feel better in the morning.
  • Enjoy Fresh Seafood. If you get the chance to escape to the gulf, enjoy the fresh fish that is available. Coconut shrimp is not what I’m suggesting…grilled is your healthiest option.
  • Be Active. Enjoy the beautiful sunshine and get outside!! It will burn calories and increase your Vitamin D levels!
  • Experiment with New Fruits and Vegetables. Visit a local farmer’s market and pick up an unfamiliar item to taste. You may discover a new way to add more vitamins and minerals to your diet.
  • Save Splurges for the Weekend. Try and keep sweets and alcohol for the weekends only.
  • Be Prepared on Vacation. Take healthy snacks for the car such as low-calorie popcorn, 100-calorie packs of almonds, or an apple.
  • Keep Grilling Healthy. Choose lean meats to throw on the grill this summer. Chicken, fish, and turkey are obviously great options, but lean bison or sirloin can make for a great burger.
  • Cook at Home. Have celebrations in your own backyard instead of eating out. When on vacation, buy groceries and stay in to save on calories and money. Anytime you prepare your own food, it is a guarantee you will consume less salt, sugar and fat.
