Currently Craving, Birthday Edition!

My birthday is this weekend and I have my in-laws coming into town and spending it with us.  I happen to have a very fashion-forward mother-in-law and we enjoy exploring all things fashion together.  This family is very big on gifts, and every birthday I am tasked with making a list of all my birthday wishes, so as to make it easy for the gift givers in my life. Andrew and I are very generous gift givers as well, so I guess what goes around comes around!

Here is my list! First, we start out with the Bags because I am OBSESSING over this Kate Spade Flamingo Diaper Bag.  Isla’s favorite animal at the zoo are flamingo’s, and it’s just too cute.  Definitely wanting this adorable new accessory.  It’s a little pricey, but if you’re a mom you know how much use you’ll get out of it.  The Leopard Kate Spade Bag is also a diaper bag and comes with a changing pad!  I love leopard, it pretty much goes with every outfit in my wardrobe. I just like the flamingo one a little bit more!  The Pink Michael Kors Tote is just too cute for those of us without babies.  I always accessorize with some shade of pink, and this pastel neutral would fit in perfectly with my wardrobe.  Maybe it will make an appearance on my Currently Craving Christmas edition!

Second, I have to tell everyone about my new obsession and it’s called: Colored Lululemon yoga pants.  Yeah, I know. You’re like, why is this such an apparition for you? They’ve always been around! But I didn’t know that.  So right now I am obsessed with these dark cherry/maroon colored Lululemon yoga pants. I have these Lauren Conrad leggings in a deep maroon (on sale for $10.99!!!) , but when I try to wear them without a long shirt you can totally see through them. No bueno.  Once you go Lulu, you never go back.  They never stretch out or lose their shape, you can bend over without fear of exposing what color underwear you’re wearing that day, and they’re pretty multifunctional.  I wear them with fancier tops or a sweatshirt, whatever I’m into that day.

Last but not least these accessories have been catching my eye lately.  I feel like they’re the kind of accessories I could add to my every-day wear list. I justify their price with how much use I’ll get out of them, just like the yoga pants.  Think about your shoe collection! How many times have you purchased yourself that one pair of shoes you just HAD to have to only end up wearing them once or twice? I try to stick to making staple purchases on quality items I know I’ll get good use out of.

Speaking of staple purchases, these two shoes are the absolute best staples you could buy for your wardrobe.  I have these Tory Burch Thora Sandals in Black and I’ve worn them nearly everyday for the past year. They are extremely durable (even held up against a couple unexpected trips to the beach!) and they still look as classy and fantastic as always. For the times when you want to dress it up a little, these Steve Madden wedges are the perfect fit.  They would definitely go with any dress or chiffon top pairing in my wardrobe.

  1. Hey Julie! So I was wondering about the Lululemon yogas… as far as sizing goes I am kind of weird about ordering pants or bottoms online because pants normally don’t fit me in the leg but fit my bum. Or they fit in the leg but not in the bum/waist. Was size would you suggest for someone with a larger bottom and that won’t also create a muffin top. Thanks!

  2. Caylee thanks so much for posting!! I am the exact way when it comes to buying pants online without trying them on first and I have the same exact problem as you and that’s why I love these yoga pants so much. I normally wear a size 10 pant, and I ordered a size 6 in these yoga pants after trying on my sisters. Because they have that large waistband it hides the muffin top, and if you order a size or so smaller then it actually sucks in my fat around my thighs for that thigh gap! I think a size 6 was a little too ambitious though cause sometimes I feel the muffin top coming on, so for my next couple pairs I ordered a size 8.
    So I guess I would recommend ordering a size down so that they squeeze you in where you want them to. But the point of me telling you that I ordered a couple sizes down and they were still amazing is that I really don’t think you can go wrong with the sizing here!

    1. Yay! Danielle that makes me so happy and is a huge inspiration to keep going! So glad that you’re enjoying it, I’m enjoying your comments keep them coming!
