Jersey Girl, Texan Heart: Cobalt

6:16 AM

Well it sure has been a crazy few weeks.  With Tough Mudder training, to my crazy amounts of custom orders, to work, and to just being able to spend time with my fur babies I think I rarely have time for sleep.  That’s ok though, I will sleep on the weekend!

Of course today is the link up with The Pleated Poppy and Because Shanna Said So.  Let’s talk about my outfit.

Top:  Ralph Lauren {here}
Pants:  Ralph Lauren {here}
Shoes:  Betsy Johnson {Marshalls old}
Bag:  Ralph Lauren {here}

I am absolutely loving cobalt blue!  I love bright colors in general but there’s something about cobalt blue that is just so fresh, but captivating.  You can also wear it with a lot of clothes which is awesome!  It can be worn underneath a blazer for work or you can wear it on it’s on and add some jewelry and you’re ready for dinner.  The first time I ever fell in love with cobalt blue was when I bought the shoes that are pictured above.  I bought them for my MBA graduation.  My school colors were blue and white and I wanted to wear something blue so when I saw these shoes I instantly fell in love.  That and they were Betsey Johnson and I mean who doesn’t love Betsey Johnson????  So there I was a few years ago with my black cap and gown and these bright blue shoes.  It was great.

So now I want to talk about gym progress.  I’ve only been going for about 3 weeks (the first week was only about 2 days so it doesn’t count) and already I see a change.  Not only do I feel different but I look different.  Last night I was able to see my first muscle.  Ok, so it was a baby muscle but there was a muscle, I SAW IT!  If you follow me on Instagram you already saw the picture.  If you don’t follow you should, I like to post some random stuff every once in a while!  I ran my record last week so I’m hoping I either stay about the same or beat my record and get up to 4 miles.  I am drinking more water that is humanly possible but I know it’s for a good reason!  I have a few really good cheerleaders in my corner throughout this whole training for Tough Mudder process.  I have some people calling me crazy and some who are saying they want to come train with me.  Either way I am feeling fabulous!
