I have a "Candy-Butt." Today it is orange!

here it is: THE CANDY-BUTT

embellished tank - ON
wrap - random, not sure brand
orange skinnies - H & M
heels - H& M
sparkle ring - Target?
hoop earrings - Bebe

So, "what the heck is a candy butt?" you ask. Well, for the definition you will have to ask Bella, of The Citizen Rosebud. When she read this post of mine the other day, she commented that I have a "Candy-Butt," and I laughed so hard!! I'm still not certain what it means, but I think I quite like it. And today it was orange! I co-planned and hosted my oldest younger brother's wedding shower yesterday. It was a co-ed shower and it actually turned out really fun! I am a total people-pleaser so I was really nervous about throwing it, and even more nervous when I had to do it with a fever today, since I'm still sick! Anyway, I hosted with Sarah, my future sister-in-law. I thought it was fun that the big sisters hosted! We played some games and even the guys seemed to have a good time. I would say it was a great Saturday! Especially getting home for some much needed "get-well" rest!

Now, the outfit... I am a total shoe snob! I have always bought shoes that are real leather, and usually name brand. Michael Kors and Jessica Simpson being two of my favorite designers to purchase. Well, lately I have had to make some adjustments in my budget, and which was the one that had to be cut down? The wardrobe budget. *sigh* When I was at H & M the other day I saw these orange skinnies and a pair of white ones and I fell in love!! I was begging them to fit well as I walked to the fitting room! {I'm a designer denim junkie as well, so this stretched me too}. They fit!! They may not be as complimenting as Citizen's are, but they were only 24.50, so I got 'em! And I am really feelin' brights this season! Oh ya, I was talking about the shoes, wasn't I?? Haha! I saw the shoes while I was there, and then the big, red $10 tag pulled me toward them, and I immediately started digging for my size! Found 'em!! And that, my friends, along with a couple tops, ended my shopping day with a smile! If you're following me on Twitter you know how excited I was!

One more thing -I promise- I just wanted to say that I have been profoundly inspired by your Fashion/Beauty Friend Friday posts on Fashion & Fitness! If you haven't noticed, I've been retweeting many of your posts with inspirational quotes I pulled from them. {if you would like to find those tweets, I started them last night with hashtags #FBFF & #Fitness} Many of you communicated some powerful messages on Friday! Soon, you can expect to see a post where I will consolidate and tag the bloggers who originally posted, for those of you who weren't able to read every post. I am still working my way through them! Also, I have received many requests/questions via comment, email and Twitter, so please be patient with me as I work through them and get you some organized, thorough, answers. I will answer you ALL. And most of all, thank you for your inspirational messages this weekend!!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
Be sure to get some physical activity in!!

  9. Hey Krystle! Glad you had a great time hosting your brother's shower- I'm sure it was fabulous! I love the outfit and think you're "candy butt" looks great in those skinnies! Ha! :) I hope you're feeling better now!

  10. Girl, YOU are an inspiration. Your tweets and reminders got me motivated when I started slipping. I'm sorry to hear you're sick, and even sorrier to have read about your having to take a time out from working out. I know how hard it must be when you're used to it.

    Yeah, Bella's right, too. You got yourself a candy butt. I never heard that expression before but I'm not going to forget it any time soon. That woman is seriously quotable.

  11. I agree with Fabienne! You motivate me! I am focused on joining a gym with my best friend so that we can be workout partners and motivate ourselves over the long summer. I'm determined to lose a little lbs this summer. Will let you know when I kick my butt into gear. Will have to be after state testing. Maybe I can get myself a candy butt. LOL!!!

  12. Wow!! This is great, Lindsay!! It truly warms my heart to hear this!! yes, please keep me updated on your workouts!! :) Are you on my FB page? If not, go ahead and "like" it! I post fun ways to spread the workouts, and working on posting more "fit tips" throughout the day! So def get involved over there! I'm trying to make it more of a community! :) Good luck on state testing, dear! And you can SO get a candy butt!!

  13. Fabienne, thank you, lady!! You have no idea how much this blesses me!! I'm getting better now. Not total misery anymore, just residual sicky stuff. Ha. As for the break on working out, yes, it's going to be awhile longer most likely, but it truly helps me to hear what you all are doing!! Keep tweeting/fb commenting/commenting over here! I am SO GRATEFUL for your support!!

    I won't be forgetting the candy butt either!! BRILLIANT! You said it perfectly-she's quoteable FOR SURE!!
