I Feel Pretty | Refreshed

I Feel Pretty | Refreshed

First off, thank you all SO MUCH for allowing me to take a couple of weeks away from the blogging world.  It was so good for my soul.  I got to spend lots of quality time with my family – watching movies, playing card games, taking the girls to get our nails done.  Hubby and I reconnected by going out on a real date night and getting a massage together.  I also tackled some long overdue home projects, like cleaning out the fridge and organizing our pantry.  It’s not Pinterest worthy, but it’s a heckuva lot better!  I even found time to take an online business course, read a book and set some 2014 goals for myself and GYPO.  It was definitely a much needed, productive and very refreshing break.

Thanks for coming back this week for the I Feel Pretty link up.  In case you missed yesterday’s post, I’m now one of the co-hosts of the new Beauty Buzz link up every Tuesday along with Lulu of Simply Lulu Style, Nicole of MomTrends, and Janise of Mama in Heels.  Each week, we’ll be taking turns hosting the link up and sharing beauty news you can use.  You’re invited to link up your beauty posts and join in the fun.  Check out yesterday’s link up HERE.

I also took advantage during my break to spend as much time in leggings as possible.  Real pants not required!  Here’s one of my warm and comfy looks featuring my favorite faux leather leggings.

My plum double breasted wool coat has been one of my closet staples for the past few winters.  The color works amazingly well with just about everything.  The one I have is no longer available but here’s a similar one on sale now for 33% off.

These faux leather leggings are also available for a steal.  They add a fun edge to your leggings outfits.  Pair them up with long chunky knit sweaters for a more subdued look.
