all the classics

Hi friends! How’s the morning going so far? We’re hanging out here around the house, I’m trying to brainstorm some new ideas for today’s barre classes (we did a seated sequence last week that was killer!) and enjoying a slow morning. Somehow the stars aligned and I was able to crush a morning workout! It felt so good to sweat a little with a PBB advanced strength set and enjoy some tea before the girls woke up.

I’ve been making a conscious effort to crash a bit earlier, even though I have a new Netflix addiction: The Great British Baking Show. I’m only on the first season (no spoilers, please!! haha), and I’m cheering for Martha. I can’t believe her mad baking skills at such a young age. I have a feeling Nancy will win, but we shall see. If you haven’t watched it, it’s a competition between 12 British bakers. They’re all normal people from different professions and demographics – there’s a construction worker, a grandfather, an IT tech, retired baker, a young teen, etc. – who just happen to love baking and be extremely good at it. It’s the perfect show to have on in the background while I work and the British humor cracks me up. Last time I was trying to find a new show to get into, I was surprised to see all of the 90s nostalgia. It’s like all of the movies from my childhood were on there! (Man of the House?! WHAT.) 

I felt the same way walking into Target. It was all velvet and chokers, and I recently saw a Facebook video that butterfly clips are back. I hope Liv is into it because I can make her some AWESOME butterfly clip braid combos.

Also, mom jeans?!

I fought the high-waist thing for so, so long because I have a short torso and most variations would end up at my chest. Stitch Fix sent me a destroyed variation in my last fix, and since I was keeping everything else, they were practically free with the 25% “keep everything” discount. I’ve ended up wearing them SO.MANY.TIMES.

The fabric is really light and stretchy, and they feel like leggings. I figured I can rock some mom jeans because I am indeed a mom. Just living my truth.

I’ve also been living in these mules from Nordstrom. They were less expensive than the other variations I’d checked out and super comfy. They’re also 40% off right now!

Here we are: the latest uniform, complete with the perfect black long-sleeve tee. It’s thinner than a sweater, but a bit warmer than my usual long-sleeve tees. Perfect for fall!

So tell me, friends: what’s your favorite show on Netflix? I tried to watch Stranger Things but couldn’t get into it.

High waist jeans: have you embraced it, or stayed away? 

Have a wonderful morning!

  2. Carrie this fit chick on November 8, 2017 at 8:47 am

    love all the outfit elements here! Im always on the lookout for a new pair of jeans- obsessed with jeans, hah!

    • Fitnessista on November 8, 2017 at 9:24 pm

      same! you can never have too many good ones 😉

  3. Megan @ Skinny Fitalicious on November 8, 2017 at 9:14 am

    I used to be obsessed with mules. So funny to see them come back! P.S. I’m old.

    • Fitnessista on November 8, 2017 at 9:24 pm

      it definitely makes me feel old when styles i used to wear become vintage

  4. Amy S on November 8, 2017 at 9:48 am

    Those jeans look super cute on you! Even though they are high-waist, they definitely don’t look like “mom jeans” to me 🙂

    Um, YES to the movie Man of the House! That was one of my faves growing up! I haven’t watched The Great British Baking Show, but I’m sure I’d love it. Right now, I’m eagerly anticipating the return of Top Chef in December!

    • Fitnessista on November 8, 2017 at 9:24 pm

      thank you!!
      man of the house is so good! there are so many awesome old movies on netflix and hulu right now

  5. Sarah on November 8, 2017 at 9:48 am

    Once you’re done with Great British Bake Off (all the seasons because they’re all amazing!) check out Zumbo’s Just Desserts…it’s like an Australian version with it’s own significant charm!

    • Fitnessista on November 8, 2017 at 9:23 pm

      ohhhh i’ll definitely be on the lookout!

  6. Kelli @ Hungry Hobby on November 8, 2017 at 10:51 am

    I embraced the high waisted when my friend told me she loves howe the accentuate the womanly figure then I got on board!

    • Amanda P. on November 8, 2017 at 4:25 pm

      What’s a good brand to buy? I’m looking for some 🙂

    • Fitnessista on November 8, 2017 at 9:22 pm

      i think she’s onto something 🙂

  7. Jessica C on November 8, 2017 at 10:57 am

    I LOVE The Great British Baking Show — it literally helps me relax when I’m anxious 🙂 My husband and I also enjoyed Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, but we are currently watching The Office because I’ve never seen it (I know — I’m like 20 years behind on TV classics 😉 ).

    • Fitnessista on November 8, 2017 at 9:22 pm

      i’m the same way! so many classics i’ve never seen

  8. Danielle on November 8, 2017 at 11:14 am

    Parenthood is on Netflix right now <3 <3. It's definitely one of the best shows I've ever watched and it gives me all the feels. And I don't think there is any shame in "mom" jeans. I'm 27 and won't buy any jeans that aren't high waisted. They keep everything in their place and I can wear more cropped tees and not worry about shirts being as long 🙂

    • Fitnessista on November 8, 2017 at 9:22 pm

      i’ve never seen parenthood! i’ll check it out!
      and amen to the high waist jeans being perfect with cropped tees

  9. Jessica on November 8, 2017 at 11:26 am

    I am all for the high waisted jeans! And i love riverdale on Netflix – it reminds me of the OC, but a little darker. Check it out!

    • Fitnessista on November 8, 2017 at 9:21 pm

      i haven’t even heard of this! i’ll definitely check it out

  10. Danielle on November 8, 2017 at 11:38 am

    I’ve been wearing mid-high waist jeans for years, especially now as a mom! I have a small waist and full hips/butt/thighs so low rise jeans are a mess on me lol. Loft has hands down the best jean selection at a moderate price point for hourglass/pear shapes. Their curvy jeans and “Julie” trousers are amazing, no back gap!

    • Fitnessista on November 8, 2017 at 9:21 pm

      i haven’t tried loft jeans! i’ll need to check them out. i love their tops and dresses

  11. Molly on November 8, 2017 at 12:35 pm

    The GBBO (or Baking Show) is truly one of my favorite things about life right now. That show ROCKS; I’m glad you found it.

    • Fitnessista on November 8, 2017 at 9:20 pm

      it’s SO GOOD. i look forward to any chance i get to watch it!

  12. Laura @FitMamaLove on November 8, 2017 at 12:55 pm

    What—no Stranger Things?? Hubby and I avoided it for so long because we don’t like creepy, but once we gave it a try, we were hooked after episode one! Have you watched the OA? That was the last one we were hooked on together. There aren’t many shows we are BOTH into.

    • Fitnessista on November 8, 2017 at 9:20 pm

      same! i always get so excited when there’s a show we both like

  13. megan on November 8, 2017 at 2:58 pm

    What kind of cross body bag is that? I love it!

    • Fitnessista on November 8, 2017 at 9:20 pm

      thank you! it’s an old marc by marc jacobs <3

  14. Tracy on November 8, 2017 at 3:00 pm

    Favorite Netflix show: Parenthood!!! Also Gilmore Girls <3. We also love House of Cards…. hope we get to see the last season even though they've stopped production due to Keven Spacey news…

    • Fitnessista on November 8, 2017 at 9:20 pm

      i haven’t seen any of these shows! need to get with it!

  15. Amanda P. on November 8, 2017 at 4:22 pm

    Maybe I should get high waist jeans b/c I have to pull up regular jeans midway through the day every time I stand up. Plus……I love “the uniform”! It’s my uniform too. Jeans and a black short or long sleeve t-shirt. My go to all the time.

    • Fitnessista on November 8, 2017 at 9:19 pm

      yes! it’s the perfect everyday uniform. i’ve been wearing it a lot, or a white tee and jeans, or a shirtdress. so easy and comfy 🙂

  16. Allison on November 8, 2017 at 8:01 pm

    I NEVER thought I’d wear high wasted jeans, until a few months ago, and now I cannot live without them. Paige is my favorite brand of jean, they have a good stretch to them but also hold me in.

    • Fitnessista on November 8, 2017 at 9:18 pm

      i loooove paige denim, too. they’re amazing and always fit well!

  17. valerie on November 8, 2017 at 8:17 pm

    Yes! I love the Great British Baking Show! I am also loving The Big Family Cooking Showdown – it’s another British show and it is soooo good!

    • Fitnessista on November 8, 2017 at 9:17 pm

      we love that one, too! liv got really into it the other night haha

  18. kathy on November 8, 2017 at 10:15 pm

    I Love Call The Midwife on Netflix and if you have Amazon, Catastrophe is hilarious!

  19. Bethany on November 9, 2017 at 5:57 am

    So far I am staying away. I might be a bit too curvy for them but I am not saying never. Are those shoe comfortable? They are cute but do not look like they would stay on.

    • Fitnessista on November 11, 2017 at 9:34 pm

      i think of them kind of like flip flops

  20. Katie on November 9, 2017 at 9:11 am

    Jane the Virgin!!! It can be a little over the top, but in a good way 🙂
