What I'm Loving Wednesday



It's been awhile since I linked up with Jamie for "What I'm Loving Wednesday!" If you haven't checked out her blog, you should. She's the sweetest blogger, she's Southern and she's a teacher! :)

Here are the random things I am loving this week!

Trendy Top- The Top, that's not!

Has anyone seen this infomercial??

I have to admit... I kind of want this product (not that I have EVER worn a shirt like the one in the Before picture!) Trendy Top is a shirt... but, for your hips! It's used to create the layering look without extra bulk and also to avoid the dreaded plumbers crack showing (I know you all know what I mean).

Watch the video here - I couldn't embed it in the post, I don't know why! But, go watch it! Let me know what you think... I'm seriously considering trying this out, but I wish I could buy it in a store.


Leggings and sweater dresses! I am so glad it's fall and leggings are in style again. They are so comfortable, and so forgiving! I'm still debating on if I'm going to buy another pair of Uggs this year. The pair I bought last year are still fine, but I needed to go down a size. They make my feet look ginormous. I might be over the Ugg trend though... they're just too expensive and I'd rather find a cute pair of boots that are "unknown" and make people wonder where I got them. ;)


30 Day Shred - I have never been sold on working out at home because I just do not have the self discipline, but I have been doing the shred for the past week and I am loving it! I can really feel myself getting stronger (yes, in a week!) and I love that it is only 20 minutes. Before I would spend 20 minutes just driving back and forth from the gym! This makes so much more sense and I have no idea why I didn't do this sooner.


Lean Cuisine Three Cheese Stuffed Rigatoni - Yes, I am blogging about a Lean Cuisine meal. This one is so GOOD. I cannot get over how good it is, I think I eat this meal at least three times a week. It's kind of ridiculous.

Couture Allure Coat from Mod Cloth - Isn't it adorable?! I just love this coat!


This dress from Ryu that I found on Tara's blog. Love, love, love. She's a big boutique shopper and I love how unique all the clothes are. I love Gap and Banana Republic just as much as the next person, but I hate when people automatically know where my outfits came from, and I will rarely wear something that has the store name splashed across the shirt. Boutique shopping is perfect for me! Unfortunately, Des Moines has very few boutiques (that aren't extremely, extremely overpriced).

What are you loving this week??

I'm on a huge leggings kick so if you have any cute outfits - send them my way! :)

I love that coat! LOVE! Also, I am with you on the Ugg thing -- get a new unknown pair that you love and that will cost half the price!

LOVE the sweater dress + leggings look! It hasn't been quite cold enough here to pull out my sweater dresses but I'm hoping that will change in October!

I LOVE the 30-day shred. I haven't done it in far too long and really need to bust it out again soon. It's such a great, QUICK workout. I once did 17 days straight of it and definitely felt A LOT stronger!

I love that coat! Of course, it would maybe get 5 days of use living in Florida but it's super cute!

I did the 30 Day Shred challenge in May and I grew to hate Jillian. ;) But I think she puts together the best fitness DVDs out there. No More Trouble Zones is KILLER. Way to go on doing it, though. She's tough!

Thanks for playing along!

I just LOVE dresses and leggings too :)

Angie said...

I want a "Trendy Top"--ha, what a great idea. I've been wearing camis under my shirt like a sucker. I also love the Lean Cuisine rigatoni!!

Lisa from Lisa's Yarns said...

I LOVE that coat!! I will not let myself buy another one since I bought that plum one in August, though.

I am loving that I am home.

I've seen the Trendy Top before and think it's such a cute idea! But as crazy as it sounds I would probably never go out and buy it.... although if I had one I would probably wear it. Ridiculous, right?

I love that outfit you put together!!
