Athleisure and Flooding

Top: Caslon | Leggings: Zella | Shoes: Nike | Tote: Street Level | Earrings: Nadri | Lip Pencil: MAC in Edge to Edge | Lip Color: Bare Minerals in Juju

Where do I even start with all of this athleisure goodness? This top is all one piece and so comfy. It's not too thick so it will be perfect even as we head into spring. When I was purchasing it, from the pictures, I thought the bottom layer was a woven polyester but it is good ol' cotton and super soft. I really love that the neck is drawstring but not a hood. It's a little different and gives this top a bit of versatility. The leggings I have on are my absolute favorite. I have written about them before, but these are the high waisted version which holds everything in nicely and if you choose to actually be athletic in them, you don't have to constantly pull them up, unlike most leggings. I fell in love with these Nikes the moment I saw them. They are midnight blue and have the coolest faux leather finish to them. If you have not worn anything from Nike's "Juvenate" line before, they slip on kind of like a sock and they are so so comfortable for everyday wear. I picked up this tote the other day and absolutely love it for travel and anytime I need to carry a little more than usual. It is such a great size and bonus... It's reversible!!! I have the black side out in this set of pictures, but the reverse side is the most gorgeous cognac color... I mean, all the heart eye emojis ever. I am oh so appreciative of the athleisure movement! I love that companies are designing sweats that look great and make you feel great even when you want nothing more than to just be comfortable. 

Holy moly it has been a bit of a rough week. Last Thursday we got home from Reno and I definitely caught a cold on the plane ride. I was entirely down for the count on Friday. It was also pouring rain on Friday. I mean it rained like I have never seen before. Our home backs up to an environmentally protected mountain and our side yard just so happens to be the run off for all of the water on this side of the mountain. Somehow our side gate got pushed shut and all of the debris washing up on it caused a dam so our side yard became six-inch deep pool. Since the water had nowhere to go it started coming in. I wandered into our bedroom after being out in the living room for about an hour and our carpet was soaked. Water was everywhere. Tony came home and assessed the damage and rented a carpet cleaner to try to suck out the water and save the carpet. Long story short, it's just not salvageable and not worth the risk of mold. All in all, it's been a little rough but we are all safe, I'm feeling tons better and thanks to a local company with quick turn around, we will be getting new carpet on Friday. I was kind of wanting new carpet because of buckling that was happening in the master, so although I never imagined it would happen this way, it is definitely the silver lining. 

I hope your day is as beautiful as you are!
