Casual Friday

It's finally Friday (we made it to the weekend!!) Friday's are usually pretty casual for me. I tend to press the snooze button one too many times, roll out of bed, and throw on a comfy tee after realizing I'm running waaaayy behind. But I don't always want to be too casual in a tee, especially in a work environment. My fix? Adding a pair of coated denim and a blazer or cardigan over the tee for a more put together look. Now I can be casual, comfy, and chic!

This weekend I am headed to Asheville, NC to catch one last glimpse of the fall leaves changing in the mountains before they fall. This time of year is always so beautiful in the mountains. I'm excited to drink some fall beers, eat well, and do a whole lot of relaxing. I've heard there may even be a chance of snow on Saturday, so I will definitely be cuddled up somewhere warm by a fire! Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

Work Out Wear

I have a confession to make: I don't really work out (as much as I should). There for a while I was on a really good gym kick. I had my routine, I knew the days I would go, and generally I was excited to go to the gym and work out. Well, between traveling and a busy schedule I came up with enough excuses to not go to the gym. And then I kept making excuses and kept letting them be just that....excuses. I've made a promise to myself that beginning again in November I will get my butt back into the gym and get back to my regular workout routine. And what better way to get motivated than cute workout clothes??? You've gotta have something to motivate you, right? Now maybe my workout clothes will get more use than just running errands on the weekends and heading to the grocery store!

This pullover and capri pants from Charles River Apparel are so comfortable and functional. I picked out this set from their site and have been wearing both pieces a lot! One of my favorite parts of the pullover is that it has thumb holes. Their extensive collection of outerwear and work out gear is amazing. They offer a lot of items (and sizes) for every season, which will come in handy in a few months as the weather gets really cold. 

Oh, and the water bottle is a new discovery thanks to my Memaw. Let me introduce you to S'well bottles. This stainless steel bottle keeps your drink hot for 12 hours and chilled for 24 hours....talk about awesome! The best part is the great selection of colors and prints they have. They even have one size that will hold an entire bottle of wine (um, heck yes!) I carry mine everywhere from work to traveling! 

P.S. be sure to head over to my instagram (@enh410) later this morning for a fun work out wear giveaway with Charles River Apparel!
