Outfit Idea: Coral Skinnies and Stripes

3 May

My love of stripes is well documented on this blog, in my closet and all over my Pinterest board. I can’t help myself… they are classic, chic and sophisticated which I love. I’m also infatuated with the bright denim this spring and these Old Navy Rockstar skinny jeans are my new favorites…they are super comfy, a great color and only $30! This is one of my favorite casual spring time outfits, perfect for running errands, writing or hanging out on the weekend. With the bold jeans, bright nails and statement jewelry I like grounding the look and taking the girly quotation down a bit with a neutral bag, shoes and my  favorite utilitarian JCrew army jacket. I bought it a few seasons ago, and I wear with everything from maxi dresses to and sandals in the summer to skinny jeans and boots in the fall.

Printable Workout: Tank Top Arms

2 May

With spring here and summer around the corner, what could be better than a printable workout designed specifically to help you get tank top arms?!? I love this season’s sleeveless tops and maxi dresses but after a long winter of sweaters and long sleeve blouses  my arms could use a little toning. (Truth be told, I’m pretty self conscious about my upper arms so I love exercises that focus on shaping my shoulders and triceps.) Add this workout into your regular cardio routine or some lower body strength work (like the Perfect 10 Lean Legs Workout:). All you need is a pair of dumbbells, and you’ll be sporting fabulous toned arms in your favorite outfit this spring and summer!

Happy Workout!

Delicious 60 Calorie Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 May

Full disclosure…I am a total cookie monster! I have an undeniable weakness for cookies…chocolate chip, peanut butter, girl scout, snickerdoodle, it doesn’t matter I cannot pass up a cookie. That’s why I was so excited when I found this recipe on FitSugar for low fat, 60 calorie chocolate chip cookies, after all I love making healthier versions of my favorite foods. It uses greek yogurt in place of butter and oatmeal to give it some chew. I replaced the raisins with extra chocolate chips and used oat flour and all purpose flour in place of wheat flour and wheat bran. These cookies are so chewy and delicious and they totally satisfy my cookie craving… in fact, even my husbad loves them! Give them a try and let me know what you think!
