Random roundup + What's Up Wednesday

It's the last Wednesday of the month which means it is time once again to link up with MelShay, and Sheaffer for What's up Wednesday! Much like January, I decided to mix my life randoms with my random outfit selfies I've accumulated lately - may as well contain all the randoms into one post, eh? You can always follow me on Snapchat (carylee07) if you want to stay up to date with me, including real time snaps of what I'm wearing every day for work! I love not having to stress about what I can or cannot post next on Snapchat because there's no "feed" I need to worry about keeping clean and organized! (That is honestly the main reason why I don't real-time post my everyday outfits on Instagram.) I swear Snapchat is just social media vomit, but in a good way. ha! But, back to today's post! I'm only picking a handful of the What's Up Wednesday questions to answer for the sake of time, but let's get started!

February Fabletics + Pilates update

Sports bra: Fabletics "Dash Seamless Bra II" (current colors here) | Tank: Fabletics "Demi" tankSweater: Modcloth "Airport Greeting" cardigan

We're basically in the last week of February, and I normally try and do these Fabletics/Pilates updates posts closer to the start of the month! Usually, I order my outfit on the 1st of the month and shipping is so fast, I almost always have it in my hands within that first week of the month. February took a bit longer to get here. The package didn't arrive until Valentine's Day! Better late than never! I certainly didn't want to skip a month because these posts are really helpful and rewarding for me to put together in terms of my certification. Ok! Let's get started!

Flay lays + buying lately

Last week was a bit hectic and somehow I ended up with not enough outfit selfies to share for a random roundup. Oops! But that's ok because I do like to share some flat lays on the blog from time to time, so this gives me the chance to do so and also highlight some recent purchases at the same time! Let's get started!

Olive military boyfriend top, fringe booties
Button up: American Eagle | Tee: Mindy Mae's Market | Necklace: Kendra Scott "Kathy" layered over Kendra Scott "Scottie" (option) | Jeans: American Eagle | Booties: Naturalizer "Fortunate"

V-neck camo tee + leather earrings

Denim jacket, camo tee, black destroyed skinnies
Sunnies: Gucci | Earrings: The Fringe Studio (c/o)Necklace: Kendra Scott "Elisa" | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff "Regan" | Jacket: Two by Vince CamutoTop: American Eagle | Bracelets: Kendra Scott "Blake" (gifted) | Bottoms: American Eagle | Shoes: Marc Fisher "Adalyn"

The weather has been a bit spastic lately. Last week it hit 70 and then the next day it snowed. This weekend it was back in the upper 60s/low 70s. I had been wishing for my one good snow, but now that it's almost March, I think I'm officially over the winter and just ready for spring weather and spring fashion. This outfit is a nice outfit for being in between seasons. And although these espadrilles are peep toes, the majority of my foot is still covered making them the perfect transitional shoe! They were so sought after and hard to find last season, so I'm glad they are back this year and I hope you're able to snag them if you missed out on them the first time around!

Floral tunic

Grace and Lace Prairie Meadow Tunic and Athleta Ponte Luxe legging
Sunnies: Vince Camuto | Earrings: Kendra Scott "Bexley" (gifted) | Tunic: Grace and Lace "Prairie Meadow Tunic" (c/o) | Bralette: Fabletics "Dash Seamless Bra II" | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff 5-zip (similar) | Bottoms: Athleta "Ponte Luxe Legging" | Shoes: Vince Camuto "Bodell" (limited sizes) (other red lace up option here

This floral tunic makes my heart sing! I was so excited to see it online - the dark floral print is so good, and you know I love my strappies! It's definitely very roomy, so I decided to just let the oversized fit do it's thang and wear a strappy bralette underneath it, which is why you're seeing the straps at my shoulders. It's tricky because it almost looks like the straps are part of the tunic! I love when I'm too clever for my own good. Since I love pairing sweet and spicy together, I quickly reached for my new Athleta leggings with zippers and faux leather to wear with the floral. I say they are new, and they are - I just got them in the past month - but I've worn them a half a dozen times already. I got them in a petite small in case you are curious!

If you are local to St. Louis, you can catch me this morning at 8:15am doing a FOX 2 news segment with Galentine's Day party ideas! (Edited to include link to segment HERE!) If you're like my mom, you're thinking, "What's Galentine's Day?" I like to think of it as celebrating the holiday with your girlfriends, whether you are single, married, or somewhere in between! I thought it would be fun to tie in today's blog post with that theme also! It gives me a chance to share what I wore (and why I chose this) along with some ideas for what you and your girlfriends can do here in the St. Louis metro area before you spend your night in sipping on wine and snacking on some goodies!
