Some of you may recall I have an affinity for outside-the-box outfit inspirations (think Cake, Barbie, or Bruno Mars). I love to give my friends and family a little extra attention on their birthday, so for my nephew's birthday this past week I used his YZ125 dirt bike for my outfit inspiration:
Sweater: LOFT (Currently 40% off, I recommend sizing down from Express sizing) / Cami: Express / Jeans: Express / Shoes: Sole Society (Similar)
I'm sure he would rather I got him this R2D2 riding helmet and gear, but that's a little out of my budget!
Restock Alert? Or Not??
I'm not 100% sure, but I think my taupe booties from Express might be my most-worn shoes this Fall/Winter. I shared four ways to wear them in this post back in October, and have probably worn them a dozen or more times since then, like these examples from the past couple of months:
I've been wanting a similar pair in a warmer-toned tan or beige booties for spring, and this week I spotted these at Express:
The color name for these is SAND, so I thought I should just check my past order to see what color name they gave my current pair because I didn't remember. Sorry for the tiny screenshot, but this is the best I can get from the website:
Winter/Spring 2016 Booties:
Product Name: Faux Suede Western Heeled Bootie
Color Name: Sand
Heel Height: 3"
Fall 2015 Pair
Product Name: Western Zip Up Ankle Boot
Color Name: Sand
Heel Height: Approx 2.5" (per my own measurement from the back of the heel)
I may still end up ordering these and crossing my fingers that the color is as pictured on the website and not the same as my own, but if any of you happen to see these in store (or order them), please let me know how they are in person!
Here's a look at the workouts I've done this week, based around Cathe's STS Meso 3 weight training.
Saturday: Kickboxing + Martial Arts (Local Studio)
Sunday: Dance Class (Local Studio)
Monday: Legs: STS Meso 3 Week 2 Plyo Legs
Tuesday: Abs: Pyramid Upper Body Abs + Cardio: Cathe Athletic Step
Wednesday: Shoulders, Bis, Tris: STS Meso 3 Week 2
Thursday: Glutes: Butts & Guts (Only Floorwork segment + Firewalkers) + Extended Stretching
Friday: Chest and Back: STS Meso 3 Week 2
Notes and Modifications:
I made the same modifications to the upper body work as I mentioned Last Week. Thursday is kind of my free day/flex day where I do whatever I feel like. I kind of feel like the Plyo Leg workouts in STS Phase 3 are more quad and inner thigh focused, so this week I decided to do some bonus glute work on Thursday.

And that's it for today! On Tuesday I'm planning to share some more detailed product info and fit notes on a few items from Express and my sweater above from LOFT. Express has several newish denim options and I feel like I've finally tried them all in the last couple of months so I want to share the differences for anyone else who might be curious!
