Out of Office and a Linkup

12:00 AM

I'm laughing at the half wedgie I have goin' on here hahaha!

Denim Jacket:  Old // Shorts:  Ralph Lauren // Sandals:  Marshalls (old) // Crop Top:  Ralph Lauren Denim and Supply (old) // Hat:  DIY (tutorial here )

I’m halfway to being out of the office and a 3 day weekend!  Even though come Tuesday, I’ll be hating it because it’ll be super busy at work, BUT at least I get an extra day to soak up the relaxation time.  So in one of today’s pictures I see a little bit of toning happening in my abs!  I seriously need to lay off of the cheat days and get serious about this whole ab ordeal because, I reached my goal of getting my booty back from all of my squats and booty workouts, now I have to get down to business with getting toned abs.  I don’t want a six pack or anything, but having a nice toned tummy is something I haven’t had since high school haha.  However, at least I can fit into these shorts and be comfortable enough to put on a crop top again.  I wore the jacket over it because usually where I go for MDW is upstate NY so the temperature is a little colder than here in NJ.  I’ll most likely be living in this denim jacket on those colder summer nights because I finally fit back into it and denim jackets are everywhere, again.

Last year the straw hats with sayings on the rim were huge!  I saw so many cute ones but I couldn’t justify spending over $100 for a hat I may not wear too often, especially since it was a straw hat so that’s usually meant more for summer.  I decided to make my own and I also made it into a blog post, so if you’d like to make your own here is the tutorial for that.  It’s probably the easiest DIY I’ve done.  I’ve seen so many people come up with the most clever sayings for their own personalized hat.  You can do so much with it, even add pom poms if that’s your thing!

Now, let’s link up!
