Unstructured Striped Maxi

Thursday, May 18, 2017 4:30 AM

Yay, It's Thursday!! 

Is this week flying by for anyone else? 
With baseball games, school projects, dance classes, work, etc, it has been nuts!
Earlier in the week I received my CIZE by Shaun T. DVDs in the mail. 
With a crazy schedule I find it hard to fit in a work out, as I am sure a lot of you can relate.  I was a fan of the Beach Body videos T25, so I thought the CIZE (figuratively and literally the end of exercise) dance videos would be a great work out.  I am such a sucker for testimonials and before and after photos. These people have lost pounds, inches, firmed up AND learned to dance all while having so much fun in only 35 minutes a day!  Most of you may know I have an extensive dance background, so naturally I thought, 'I've got this'.  So Monday night I popped in the DVD and got to work and here is what I learned. 

1. While you may not think of it as a workout because you aren't doing squats, push-ups, planks and sit ups, you had better be prepared that you will get your heart rate up and sweat your a** off.

2. I worked muscles I forgot I had. My arms are so sore, it is a struggle to get dressed. 

3. Turns out, I can't dance. I have no raw talent and I am completely uncoordinated! ;)

With my sore arms and the temps climbing into the 90s, it want to be comfortable and cool. 
When I saw this striped sammydress, I knew it needed to see the inside of my closet. You know when you have a piece that you wear over and over, this dress is that for me. It is so versatile and a perfect Summer staple. 

What are your go-to pieces? 

Have an awesome weekend!

xx, Elise

  34. Love those cute shoes! I hate when a new workout leaves me so sore I can't move, but on the bright side, at least I know I did something. Getting in workouts are a struggle for me.
