Who knew that here in Ontario I’d be wearing full fledged warm up jackets for working out well into June? Where is the scorching weather, Mother Nature? I moved from Newfoundland to Ontario to get away from the damp cold springs.
Well guess the weather waited a bit while I got to wear my new jacket for a few weeks at least. It’s the perfect time to add in that I’ve been wearing this sweet Under Armour jacket from Sport Chek.
Outfit deets: black Under Armour Studio Lux Jacket, GAP leggings and Reebok Nano sneakers. Now before inquiring minds ask, I received the Under Armour jacket from my Sport Chek friends, as I’m still part of the My Better Campaign.
The quality of the jacket is so luxe. It’s thicker than my all-time favorite warmup jacket by bright pink MPG, and thicker than the zip up jacket from Costco. I suppose it’s thicker and higher quality than the latter because it retails for $99 Canadian.
I’ve recently purged my entire wardrobe and have kept a lot of stuff, sureÂ â€” hey I’m female. But definitely kept in mind what makes me feel good and what I enjoy wearing. This being one of the few warm up jackets I bring with me to CrossFit.The jacket can be worn as a workout top or on a casual day with jeans. Here I am zipping it up. Careful not to expose myself to you.Â
I should start adding in my (many) blooper pictures. I think that adds a little interest to the blog posts. Keeps it true. It washes up well too. I’ve had the jacket since mid-May and had to wash it more than once due to the fact that I sweated in it many times. I don’t put anything in the dyer besides underwear and socks, so I have no idea if it shrinks. But I’d advise you not to put it in the dryer if you were worried. And so far? No pilling upÂ â€” I hate it when clothing does that.
Do you like my new pink cardigan (Wednesday’s outfit) I picked up last weekend?
I was in the mall on Sunday picking up my Sephora freebie for Earth Day. You simply just brought in any empty cosmetics container and exchange it for a full sized Origins facial moisturizer. So while I was in the mall I was browsing around. I happened to walk by the Gap and go in, hoping they had a striped blazer since I saw one on a fashion blog last week. They didn’t have it, but I did notice they had a 40% off the lowest ticketed sale items, so this beaut was $29.00 minus 40% off. Do the math! A pretty fab deal if you ask me. It’s quick thick and has such a wonderful quality feel to it. I paired it with my ever so favorite $12.95 H&M top. I’m going to go back to H&M and see if they have any more left in my size. I don’t want to be out a cute top if I happen to ruin it at all. Plus, it’s such a steal at $12.95!
I’ve also been loving, stacking bracelets. Whether it be sterling silver bracelets, or gold. Love them both. I’ll share with you a new jewelry site I came across from watching a few YouTube videos, next week with you all :)
Canadian taxes aren’t due until April 30 and the boyfriend and I just finished ours a few nights ago. I don’t know why I’m so slack with doing them, I mean it’s not like I have to pay in or anything – I always get a nice return! Have you filled yours out yet? Also! (Jeeze I’m chatty today) what is everyone doing this lovely weekend? Answer below, I love hearing all about you guys :)
