The Secret Garden

sweater: gap // jacket: f21 // jeans: 7s for all mankind // shoes: steve madden // bag: mkors

Houston's weather has been so UGLY and BIPOLAR. It's been raining so much the past few days and has been so gloomy outside. The sun hasn't been out to play in awhile and it's either chilly one day or humid the next! I am so tired of the cold weather. I'd rather it be hot than cold. I can't wait for spring to come. I am so over the winter gear and anxious for the tank tops/shorts and sundresses to come out my closet! Anyway, pictures above are captured from my boyfriends backyard. I love his backyard because the landscaping is so cute. When the weather gets warmer, I'd really enjoy just sitting in his backyard and bask in the sun with a cup of icecream in my hand :) mmMm!

Orange you glad I posted?!?!

dress: asos // blazer: gap // shoes: bcbg // necklace: f21

Boyfriend took out his camera and told me to put an outfit on so he can brush up on his photography skills. I thought of you guys and with no hesitation, I brought out my orange birthday dress I wore last year. Paired it with my favorite blazer from Gap.

So due to my lack of updates, I have been very productive and dedicating most of my time after work to yoga. I highly recommend it to those that don't enjoy running. I had an on/off moment where I really enjoyed running. I mean I can run miles and miles straight but as of late, I despise it. With all these groupon and living social deals, I've been taking total advantage on all these yoga deals! I've purchased regular yoga classes and Bikram yoga (where you're in a heated room of 108 degrees stretching and drenching yourself in sweat)

I've practiced yoga for I'd say a month already and I've noticed drastic changes in my body. I'm more toned in muscle and my waist has slimmed significantly (says my boyfriend). I still try to get some cardio in and run because I'm really trying to shed off some fat from my stomach area. Spring break is coming up so I gotta prepare myself to be in a bathing suit. I don't have plans to be in a bathing suit yet but it's just my own motivation to be more active versus taking naps after work. Which I miss and love :(

Black + White

Been awhile since I've been on this. Life has been too busy that I don't think I can dedicate most of my time updating like I use too. Plus, I havent been inspired enough to want to post outfits as of lately. I hope this changes soon because I know I have a few fans out there that miss me ;) haha 

Seems like everyone around me is getting engaged or hitched or pregnant. I want to congratulate a beautiful couple, Ngoc + Jimmy on their engagement. I'm so happy for you guys! :)
