. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Instagram Love

Instagram Love


 
dress: old navy (similar)  socks: target   boots: kohls (similar)

I'm quite excited that it is time to wear socks under boots again.  It took me a little while to feel confident wearing them like this, but I'm ready to take advantage of Fall weather and wear them often!

Like I'm sure the majority of you are, I am in love with instagram.
It amazes me that I can take a picture of my dessert, food or shoes and they amazingly look 100 times cooler when I put a filter on them and post them in square collage on my phone. 
Somewhat deceptive and not accurate of real life. But I love it. 

If you follow me on instagram this will all be repetitive - sorry about that. 
But here's some pictures from the last week or so.  


We spent this last weekend in Galena with Chris' family.  It was the cutest town ever and we loved it!


I've started taking classes at the gym and am really enjoying it.  My favorite so far is kickboxing and a strength and conditioning class.   I should probably dedicate a whole post on my thoughts on group workouts.



My sister texted me this picture yesterday of my nephew wearing the sweatshirt I gave him. I miss that boy so much! 


I bought this shirt at Target for $6 a week or so ago and I love it.  If I had a better phone or was more talented I'd take a picture of the back because it has a cute zipper on top. 


I may have successfully attempted pattern mixing last week.  Outfit post to come. 



Today I got to be part of this sweet boy's baptism.  I felt quite honored to become a godmother.

Yes! I love kickboxing. Such a great workout. And the socks look cute! I haven't actually gotten up my courage to wear them like that, but I plan to. Actually, I want to try crocheting some cute tops I can wear. I saw a picture on Pinterest I thought was cute.

Kickboxing is super addictive!
I have one instructor here that I just love and now I'm all spoiled and refuse to go to other classes.
I should probably pull out my boot socks too...I haven't worn them over leggings yet this year.

Such a cute outfit and loving the boots! After living in a very hilly area + having 37 steps to get to my apartment my calves have gotten massive and I can no longer wear boots, it's so depressing. xo
