living my 2015 board – stripes

One of the assignments from my Precision Nutrition – Lean Eating program that I have really ran with is creating a 2015 vision board. I love having the end-game in sight. I am digging the opportunity to be able to define who I want to be in 2015.

I have learned a lot from it already, though. I think I thought that these things I want to be – the me that I want to portray – could only come AFTER a physical transformation. I have been really surprised to see how I have started to live out my vision board here in the beginning of 2014. I am loving how many things I have at my disposal already that I wasn’t utilizing.

The first thing I did with my board mind was cut my hair. There are a lot of haircuts pinned to my board. I was really digging the Meg Ryan short, curly, messy look. And that’s the picture I took when I went in to the salon. Except I didn’t want to lose my bangs. I went from long and mostly in a ponytail to down and curly.

Yup, this picture is slowly becoming my profile picture everywhere. The love I have for my hair overshadows my need for lipstick.

There are also a lot of stripes and layers on my pinterest vision board. So when I got dressed one morning last week (the same day I took the hair picture), I looked for stripes. And I found them.

I bought this striped sleeveless dress on consignment probably a year ago. I think it is from Target, and I think I paid $6 for it. And I went from there. I wish I had a more flowy sweater, but this cardigan (from Old Navy) did the trick. I have no idea where the striped scarf came from, but it matched perfectly. And it hid the plunging neckline so I didn’t have to use a safety pin.

To complete the layered feeling, I wore my navy Lululemon pants and my Frye boots that I am utterly and completely in love with. I think I’ve worn them almost every day since I bought them.

Granted, this outfit isn’t exactly what I keep pinning on pinterest. But it is definitely a movement in that direction. Stripes. Layers. Yoga pants. Boots. It all came from my current closet. And I’m down with that.

I’m partying like it’s 2015, friends.

And since I showed you our little Hershel yesterday, I’ll leave you with my sweet Scully today. Friends, this girl has my heart.

  1. Krissie, just wanted to say I so appreciate you sharing your struggles. I, too, am so sick of the up and down game and want to conquer it for good, and your openness makes me feel so much less alone. Also, it’s nice to see your beautiful face! Haven’t seen a pic of you in a while. Looking great!
