Kimonos are pretty awesome!

Standard

I love a good kimono! They can be worn with anything! You can wear them as a swim suit coverup, with shorts, jeans, even with a dress. I haven’t found anything yet that doesn’t look good with a kimono. 

Today I’m wearing one that I found last weekend at Ross with a pair of high wasted denim shorts, which I also got at Ross months ago. 

   

The shoes are also pretty amazeballs and were an awesome deal! $20 on clearance from Belk last weekend. I’m normally not a department store shopper, but I went into Belk to get mascara and of course I wandered into the shoe department! I’m glad I did because I love these wedges and they’re super comfy! 

So, are you a kimono lover too? And what do you like to wear them with?

If it comes with fringe, I’m buying! 

Standard

I have no idea what it is about fringe and tassels, but if I see something with fringe, it’s coming home with me! So, I’m super excited that fringe is in, so there are lots of fringy options these days! 

Today I’m wearing a jumpsuit that I got from Ross last weekend with a fringe vest I got last year, a fringe necklace I got just this week, and fringe purse I got years ago. It’s fringy Friday!!!

   

Everything I’m wearing except shoes and jewelry came from Ross. So, yeah you should definitely be shopping there!!!!  

Always hungry like me? Try this!

Standard

To say that I love good food is an understatement! I get excited when I know a good meal is in my future! That is why exercise is a must for me as well, because it seems that I just look at food and gain weight! 

The struggle is real! I seem to always be hungry…or maybe I’m just greedy! Either way, I’ve gotta find a way to keep the hungry monster off my back! 

I saw an ad for Benefiber Healthy Shape, a fiber supplement on Facebook last week and decided to give it a shot. Fiber naturally keeps you full longer. I don’t know if it’s that I’m playing a really good Jedi mind trick, or if this stuff really works, but I have noticed that I do stay full longer, so I’m snacking less, which is awesome! Hopefully that’ll equate to a few lbs lost! 

 I got it at Walmart for about $10. You can use it once or twice per day. I’m doing twice per day. You can add it to your food, or in whatever you’re drinking. There’s no taste at all, so it doesn’t alter the taste of your food or beverage at all. 

If you’re looking to eat less and need a little help with appetite control, I’d say definitely try it!  

TIS the season of the romper!

Standard

One thing I always look forward to when the weather is warm is wearing rompers! I also refer to them as adult onesies, but they are awesome!!! A whole outfit in one piece of clothing is just genius!!!! 

Today I’m wearing my first romper of the season! I got it at Ross months ago, of course in the junior’s section because I’m telling you that’s where all the cute clothes are in Ross! 

 Are you crazy about rompers too? The only complaint I have is going to the restroom! Omg, talk about a pain in the behind!!!! But they’re cute, so it’s totally worth the annoyance!  

Un-anniversaries and holidays

Standard

  
Getting divorced is HARD, well hard is an understatement, but chances are you know someone, or you’ve been through a divorce yourself; so no further explanation needed! 

Regardless of how/when it happens, you’ll NEVER forget what you went through…but when your un-anniversary falls on a holiday, how’s that for an in-your-face reminder!!!! 

I got married on Memorial Day weekend 13 years ago. The marriage lasted about 6 years, the first 3 of them were happy, the last 3…not so much. Although my marriage didn’t last, I learned A LOT!!!! 

Don’t cry for me Argentina, I’m not downplaying the process it took to get here, but I’m digging the new and improved post-divorce Kindra. I actually like her a lot! And, the other side is quite nice, less debt, less drama, I can decorate my place any way I want without someone complaining…and most importantly, it’s peaceful!!!!! 

So, here’s what, when choosing your wedding date, stay far away from holidays! Just for the sake of if it doesn’t work out, you won’t have the blaring reminder of your un-anniversary falling on a holiday. The upside is that if you’re feeling down, there’s always a holiday sale going on, and retail therapy is good for the soul ☺️

And, whoever husband number 2 is, I’m better prepared for the 2nd time around, thanks to what I’ve been through, so it actually was a blessing in disguise and I’m thankful! Happy Memorial Day weekend! 

Summer nail color

Standard

If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you already know that green is one of my fav colors. A few weeks ago, Ulta had an amazeballs sale on their nailpolish, so I picked up a few new colors to try since they were only $2. One of which was a super cute mint green color. A few days ago, I got an email coupon from CVS for $2 off Sally Hansen and being the person I am who can’t leave a good deal on the table, I bought another polish, in basically the same color of the mint green I had just bought at Ulta. Ugh, hate when that happens, but good thing I like green! And, I should probably stop shopping so much since I forget what I already have! 

Today I’m wearing the Sally Hansen mint greenish color in cuteapillar. I like this color a lot and I just think it screams summer! 

 

Here are both colors, and don’t they pretty much look the same? Can’t wait to try the Ulta brand to see if it looks any different on. 

 

And here are the names of the colors if you decide to try them…and you should! Nails are a good way to get some color in your life!!! 

  
  

Proof that leopard is a neutral! 

Standard

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, leopard is indeed a neutral! I’ve not yet found a color that it doesn’t look good with, and I’ve tried a lot of color combos! 

Today I’m wearing a leopard print blouse with what is supposed to be an orange skirt, but it pretty much looks red to me! 

  
I still think my fav color to wear with leopard is green. But just like potatoes, I’ve never met one I didn’t like, the same goes for leopard with colors. It just looks good with anything!!!! 

What’s your fav leopard color combo? 

Where I got it:

  • Blouse: Ross
  • Skirt: jane.com
  • Shoes: DSW

Squatting & lunging is all worth it when it’s shorts time!!! 

Standard

I complain…oh yes I complain when it’s leg day at the gym, but when it’s warm, and time to bring out the shorts, it’s all well worth it! 

I’ve still got some work to do on the thunder thighs, but so far I’m stoked about the results. Today everything I’m wearing except for the necklace came from Ross…surprise, surprise!!! Yeah, I’m just a tad obsessed with that place! 

 

 

Now, if I could just get the rest of the bod on the same page, that would be fantabulous! Anyone got any secrets to making oh about 20 lbs disappear ☺️

  

White hot for summer!

Standard

If you’re a curvy girl and you listen to fashion experts, you may be afraid to wear white, especially white pants! But being someone who wears what I want I love to wear white jeans. 

And the best thing about wearing white is that you can wear pretty much any color with white! If you’ve been reading my blog, you know that blue is a new color I’ve been trying to wear more of. I love the blue/orange color combo, so that’s what I decided to wear with my white jeggings today. 

 

I also love the back of this shirt, so cute! 

 

What colors do you love to wear with white? 

Where I got it: 

  • Shirt, jeggings, shoes: Ross
  • Necklace: jane.com

  

Hot pink midi

Standard

I’ve had an interesting morning so far, and no time to set up my little tripod, so a selfie will have to do, but I couldn’t not tell you about my awesome hot pink midi skirt I ordered from one of my faves, jane.com! 

As you know by now, or if you’re new to my blog, I love jane.com! I’ve just recently started ordering clothing on the site, but it’s my go to for cute, inexpensive jewelry. In fact, the necklace I’m wearing today also came from there too! 

Since pink and green is one of my fav color combos, I paired the skirt with a green peplum top. I had a last minute change of shoe plan and forgot to switch my belt, so I’ve got an interesting combo of leopard and floral going on 😁

 

  Are you into midi skirts/dresses as much as I am? I became a fan after seeing Tracee Ellis Ross in a super cute midi dress, and now I can’t get enough of them! 

Where I got it:

  • Shirt: Express
  • Skirt and necklace: jane.com
  • Belt: Burlington Coat Factory
  • Shoes: DSW
