What I wore: 7/17

tucson 001

Dress: J Crew

Sandals: Banana Republic

Cuff bracelet + necklace: Express

Why I like it: this dress was on super sale at J Crew –after the extra 30% off, it was like $20- and I love the bubble hem that isn’t too obnoxious. Sometimes things can get a little too bubbly and I’m not a fan, but this one was perfect. I also like how I’ll be able to throw a long cardigan over it and wear with booties to take it into fall. Since summer is going to be quickly ending, I’m focusing on transition pieces that are more classic and easily adaptable to slightly cooler weather.

    I love that cuff bracelet, Gina…and I love how you are so fashion savvy 🙂 I never think of things like purchasing transition pieces. I’m just like: “Oooh! T-shirt” or “Ooooh! Jeans!” Yes please, lol! 😛 I learn a lot from you blog, about fitness, food AND, now, fashion! Thank you! xyx

    ‘since summer is going to be ending quickly’ – noooooooooooo!!!!!! I feel like summer has barely started! :'(

    Summer has barely started! Officially, we have another two months, so don’t rush it. Don’t forget, some of us live in climates with brutal winters, lol. Don’t make summer any shorter than it already is.

    Love this dress and those yellow nails! I was wondering if you would consider posting some cute workout outfits? I mean, I don’t go to the gym for a fashion show, but I always like to look nice even if I’m getting sweaty! I just don’t want to be *that* girl in the gym, ya know?

    • Fitnessista on July 19, 2011 at 6:30 pm

      sure, i’ll definitely post some of my faves

  11. Laura J. on July 21, 2011 at 8:23 pm

    I have that dress! 🙂 So true about it being a great transition piece!

    P.S. You can’t even tell your pregnant in that picture– I thought it was a picture of you in the dress pre-pregnancy, ha 🙂

    • Fitnessista on July 21, 2011 at 8:39 pm

      wow- thank you!

  12. Roselyn on July 23, 2011 at 7:07 am

    I have the same dress…I want to say I got it for $18! 🙂 You’re right, its a great dress. You look fab in it. 🙂

    Doesn’t go too well with your body type, imo. It makes your shoulders look really broad and your hips non-existent. It’s not that flattering on the twins, either. Sorry to go against the flow of compliments. I typically really like your fashion sense, just.. this one didn’t do it for me.

    • Fitnessista on July 24, 2011 at 12:05 pm

      i know what you mean. it’s definitely been a challenge for me to find clothes that look flattering right now.

      • Mandy on July 24, 2011 at 6:22 pm

        I hear ya. 😀 It gets a lot easier when the tummy gets bigger, strange as that may be. Silly awkward in-between phase.

  14. Jules on July 27, 2011 at 11:13 pm

    i LOVE those shoes.
    they look great with your skin tone & nail color.

    ^okay kinda creepy..but you get the point 🙂
